Death From Above: Confessions of a Killer Drone Operator

What happens when you combine radio-controlled planes, highly-skilled video gamers, gps-enabled bombs and unlimited military budgets?  Well, you might get radio-controlled killing machines like ones Brandon Bryant has used for many death missions.  

Is this what technology had led to?  I’ve always heard people say that technology was meant to improve our lives.  Isn’t it ironic how its being used to end these peoples lives?  Meanwhile, controllers like Brandon live with the guilt of killing people from the comfort of a reclining chair.  That just seems morally wrong on many different levels.

In 2009, not long after his historic election and seven years after the first U.S. drone strike, President Barack Obama accepted the Nobel Peace Prize. “Even as we confront a vicious adversary that abides by no rules, I believe the United States of America must remain a standard bearer in the conduct of war,” he said. “That is what makes us different from those whom we fight. We lose ourselves when we compromise the very ideals that we fight to defend.”

FOOD FIGHT – Earth Amplified feat. Stic.Man of Dead Prez

Food Fight is the story of a kid who lives in a world where the food at the local corner store is killing his neighborhood — literally.

 

A shocking look at what happens when we recycle our electronic things.

Sometimes Interesting

Ever wonder where those old used computers end up? How about all those old CRT monitors, cell phones, keyboards, and PDAs? We’re told when we drop off our old electronics for recycling that they will be properly disposed of; in some cases we pay recyclers to ensure our old electronics are disposed of in the correct way.

It is easy to wipe our hands of these discarded items, feeling we’ve done our part – but have we? What we don’t know is what the “recyclers” do with these parts and where the discarded items end up. You rarely hear about electronic waste sites; perhaps it is time we start paying more attention.

GMO corn banned in Poland; cites health concerns, massive bee die-off

GMO process

GMO corn is not allowed to be grown, at least in Poland.

Yet in the US, Genetically Modified (GM) corn type MON810 is being grown all over the country.  And most likely you ate some today.  Yes, the GM corn with its own built-in pesticide that was genetically inserted into the DNA of the common corn plant.

Every part of the plant is toxic, yet it is being consumed by basically every American, every day, in one way, shape or form, whether its:

corn syrup (soda, juice drinks, packaged foods, candy)

corn starch (fast food, baked goods, Chinese food, packaged foods)

ethanol vapor (corn-based car fuel)

beer and alcoholic drinks (most American lagers, Mikes Hard, Seagrams)

animal feed (beef, chicken, farmed raised fish, pork)

Also, a recent long term study linked GM corn to tumors, infertility, cancer, total organ failure, premature death and DNA damage in standard laboratory rats, which are used because their bodies respond similarly to a humans body.

Poland has linked the corn to colony collapse disorder (CCD) in honey bees, which are crucial to all plants to reproduce.  It’s seems logical as to why the bees are dying; they gather pollen from GM corn plants that contain built-in pesticides.  That, in itself, kills the bees.  When a company inserts a toxin into a corn plant that is designed to kill a broad range of insects, it is safe to assume the corn is also toxic when consumed in high quantities by larger animals, such as humans.   Americans have a diet that is largely dependent on corn, yet in the US, corn is still king; with the likes of Monsanto running the industry.  The same company that produced and assured us that Agent Orange was safe! 

It appears that the rest of the world is slowly but surely banning GM corn and crops for health and environmental reasons.  In the US, however, the bioengineering companies are closely intertwined with our Government. And that adds up to a toxic relationship.
