below, in response to: -------------- Hi David. it's been awhile.
I realize we are on opposite sides of the climategate argument,
but I just wanted to come with an olive branch. im not paid by
fossil fuel folks, and I am a complete advocate for healthy clean
gaia...i just dont want to be on a blacklist or something because
of my views. im all for naturopathic and homeopathic medicine,
advocate for veggie and vegan diets etc.
was actually wanting to put an open source dvd together to kinda
introduce people to alternative medicine that could be copied and
distributed freely by activists and proponents of non western
medicine and if you're interested in collaborating, I have all
the pro camera equipment to get it done. im more than one cause.
you're doing well.
on Earth and Among all Beings
idea, I'm happy to help.
I'm at with alt.med is entirely holistic .. including
socio-political / financial / ecological. as in: What is the most
Revolutionary Act of Personal Empowerment you can make? Take
control of your health and well being !
have "done my time" with online activism & the
inevitable infowar shitstorms. None of us has access to some
megalithic carved-in-stone truth about climate "issues"
... it is more of a matter (to me) to make a personal stand for
Gaia. I know that the U.N. is largely controlled (like the rest
of the human society on the planet) -by the "elites." I
know that the U.N. and W.H.O. and CDC and a bunch of other
elitist criminal scum are busy doing crazy nazi-prison-camp
experiments on humans worldwide, and that "flu vaccine"
is part of one of their longterm goals of depopulation. I am LONG
PAST arguing with anyone about any of this.. it (like everything
else, really) eventually comes down to personal opinion.. the
idea of proving some "solid consensual truth" in an
info-scape filled with spy-vs-spy infowars would be superbly
comical if it were not so deeply sad.
personal "line in the sand" in this regard is basically
that rapid climate degradation is a fact. I do not care about who
may have exaggerated or mistaken EVEN IF they purposely did so
AND I believe it more likely that appearances which indicate "pro
climate" falsification are actually infowar.
you choose to believe on this topic (or any...) is not of great
importance to me; my motto is to seek the similarities, and work
together where we find mutual interest -and to live and let live
where differences might appear as disconnects.
is inevitable , is it not, that the criminalist fractional
reserve (now doing business as debt reserve) banking system yoked
to the financial model of Wall st. will find a way to turn
any/every situation into an attempt to take profit ? Every
money-trail we follow on a topic of the scope of climate change
vs. 'deniers' is going to involve the insanity of the greed
factories of Wall st and the psychopathic corporations which are
their stock in trade.
my second "line in the sand" .. my life is for and
about building community on the local level, networking about any
and every potential for alternative medicine, alternative
currency, locally re-planting the "global commons,"
concerning myself with how to assure the basics of life: food,
water, shelter, laughter, and love ... for all humanity and
beyond to all beings.

Makepeace bros: "Hero" -listen:
is your most important possession? -if you said "my health"
you would be in agreement with practical and traditional wisdom.
is the most revolutionary act of personal empowerment you can
make? TAKE control of your health and well-being !
IF .. (and of course, it is a huge "IF") there were
some movement toward better health insurance .. the U.S.
healthcare system is fatally flawed.
drugs are a leading cause of DEATH, not of "health."
"We the people" still have the power to TOTALLY
REVOLUTIONIZE "healthcare" .. by simply voting with our
say YES to the common wisdom of Hippocrates ("father of
medicine") which gives the understanding that healthful
(organic, not pesticide polluted or genetically mangled) FOOD is
the absolute necessary foundation of excellent health.. and just
say NO to the pitifully flawed idea that one should totally
abandon & turn over one's most prized personal possession
(your HEALTH, according to all common-sense wisdom) to the
big-brotherism and gangsterism of the modern medical mafia !
#1 leading cause of death in the U.S. (and similar in other
"industrialized" nations) is the $pharmaceutical-based
(anti)health (doesn't)care system. True healthCARE.
wellness-CARE, actually PREVENTATIVE healthcare, and care for
illness/disease which actually WORKS ... has not been and will
not be born out of the COMPLETELY CORRUPT medical system as we
see it in the U.S. The U.S anti-health greed-care system is
clearly motivated (on the macro level) solely by mega-corporate
mega-corps are (have been) easily characterized as criminally
insane, and the criminally insane medical mafia is apparently
convinced and focussed on DISEASE-care .. that is to say that
they care-for disease (NOT wellness) as disease is their
marketplace. They make money from and with disease. They make NO
MONEY from robust health and wellness. Robust health and wellness
are, therefore, obviously anathema to the $pharma based business
interests of the modern medical mafia. It takes only grammar
school logic to "GET" this. Mega-corps are dedicated to
one thing above all, we already KNOW this. Mega-corps who make
money off of people being SICK & DISEASED will very
predictably seek to perpetuate and contribute (by any means
possible !) .. What? .. sickness and disease, of course ! The
logic and the reality of this is stark and simple, and visible
everywhere around us.
do we not hear of the necessity for primary attention focused on
healthful diet comprised of minimally processed (organic,
non-gmo) food ?
There is no profit in that for
any of the mega-corps.. though we may well dwell on how we could
change this !
the re-evolution in modern society begins in each of us; we are
all capable of choosing and learning to support our own robust
health. Please consider that eating (and if at all possible
GROWING) organic food, and avoiding the multiple ills associated
with factory farmed foods: intake of pesticide residues,
pollution of land and water with pesticides, chemical fertilizer
runoff .. petroleum products consumed by machinery &
-is one of the BEST things you can do to
support your own health;
-is one of the BEST things you can
do to support a healthy environment;
-is one of the BEST
things you can do to support food security worldwide:
must envision the re-evolution.. a society which thrives in
mutual support of the other life forms we share the biosphere
with, where all may live in abundance and peace.

Obama, healthcare, the medical industrial complex
answer to the question:
the President's health reform proposal in his speech disappoint
insurance companies are only part of the problem.
is with a mixture of hope & trepidation that I view what
seems to assure that the medical industrial complex will continue
roughly "status quo" (in other words: continue to be
the USA's #1 direct leading cause of death) .. and just like the
recent stock market crash and current financial depression was a
direct result of insane / dysfunctional "economy" ...
so to .. will the INEVITABLE CRASH of the medical industrial
complex ensue upon the status quo ... bringing of course, much
suffering .. but inevitably FORCING people to become responsible
for their own health and well being .. essentially ripping the
blinders off of the faces of the sheeple.. as grassroots &
word-of-mouth show everyone how eating "death-eater
corporate shit-food" and taking "death-eater poison
medicines" lead to a DEADLY OBVIOUS lack of health !
"ALTERNATIVE" medicine will become 1000 times more
popular than it is now, BY DEFAULT ! What seems like terrible
news .. is indeed "a bitter pill" ... but it is the
death knell of the system of DEATH/DISEASE-medicine .. which will
usher in VITAL / LIFE medicine .. the many and various HOLISTIC
alternatives to poisonous $pharma medical industrial complex.

of NOT buying local = hazards of funding the Corpocracy
considering whether we patronize (fund) corporate businesses, in
my experience it is - "no, of course not, they are known to
act in psychopathic manner, and WILL lie, lie, lie -- unless
restrained from doing so."
corporations exist primarily for the unconscious false-economy
fiat currency cash "bottom line."
if they can pollute in the Amazon basin, and chase out or even
kill local tribespeople (thru local intermediaries if not local
government &/or clandestine U.S. "operations") in
order to improve their "bottom line" they will.
HAVE, and they will continue to do so until they are STOPPED.
Currently Chevron is spending much $$ on publicizing LIES in
attempt to cover up previous crimes.
is the nature of the large corporation.
It has only one
agenda .. false-economy "profit" -and it will do
anything within its power to attain that.... which specifically
includes bending &/or breaking laws, even to the point of
planning the executions of large number of human beings.
of "our" major points of power in terms of the large
corporation is to refuse to fund it.
The corporation exists
solely to "do business" ... if enough people will NOT
"do business" with a corporation because of [some list
of criminal behaviors and specific incidents] --- maybe (just
maybe) it could be possible to reform the corporation a bit at a
the corporation is allowed to keep doing "business as usual"
and feeding PR lies out through monopoly corporate controlled
media, in order to keep "CONSUMERS" blind as to the
corporate criminality which they are funding.. we will continue
to have Walmart "decorating" their factory-farm
vegetable produce area with a hanging sign saying "local"
(because there is no specific law about how far away the sign has
to be, and how much the fine is for displaying it illegally.)
Basically Walmart is an enemy of mankind, along with
Chevron & apparently every other large corp in the energy
business.. between them all, they certainly have bought up and
hidden away plenty of patents which could've facilitated
practically free "green energy" decades ago.

Organic ! .. & go, go, go ... Cafe Gratitude :-)
food is FAR more nutritious, as well as being much less dependent
on fossil fuel .. locally grown organic takes it another step
along the road.. Raw food, takes the nutrition density another
step along the road..
Gratitude incorporates all of the above, plus its intrinsic
"sacred commerce" and "school of personal
transformation masquerading as a chain of restaurants"
approaches, which gives employees and management a gently
structured manner in which to fully relate and engage on
thinking/feeling levels as opposed to the tyical "shut up &
get to work" restaurant HR attitude.
results in service which is unique in dining experience =;-)
unique is this powerful combination of delicious nutritionally
dense food plus "the game" of Transformation .. that
the small San Francisco chain is now Evolving/ sporing .. as a
result of popular demand (which is being somewhat boosted by pop
singer/star Jason Mraz & his "Gratitude Cafe Tour")
Gratitude is bringing their mostly raw & vegan restaurants to
New York City, Kansas City, Los Angeles, and San Diego ...
groundwork is being laid now, it will take 1 - 2yrs for "opening
Cafe Gratitude partnered with Whole Foods in Oakland, California,
to open Cafe Gratitude inside of a very large Whole Foods, where
a Whole Foods run "juice bar" had been not very
successful... Cafe Gratitude is doing very well in that same
location ... more partnerships such as this may be possible...
ask your nearest Whole Foods to bring Cafe Gratitude to you !
you're intrigued by the idea of bringing the "full on"
Cafe Gratitude model (3 or 4 restaurants supplied daily) with
prepared [juiced, chopped, blended, diced, sliced, soaked, made
into nut milk, nut milk 'ice cream,' and other sumptuous desserts
& otherwise ready for dish-up at the cafes] check out their
website &/or drop me a line.
yeah.. another "spore" of the Cafe Gratitude vibe is a
small film company, with their first offering "May I Be
Frank" in world premiere at the upcoming Sausalito film
the way.. surely it's clear that I love this company (and the
people . .not to mention the food :) I do some contract I.T. work
for them (past 1.5yrs,) am not an employee and have no personal
gain attainable in posting this.. just sharing.
am also *personally committed* to current co-creation of a worker
owned collective of doctors & alternative healers, which is
loosely affiliated with the extended Cafe Gratitude family. It is
likely that this will also Evolve / spore in NYC, KC, LA, etc.,
in service to those communities .. Services will include super
nutrition / cleanse programs (and Juice Bar,) homeopathy,
herbalism, yoga, craniosacral work, bodywork, and more - focus
will be open to facilitating healing from anything from severe
chronic disease to those simply wishing to transition to
generally healthier lifestyle.

Maddie, I'm not an expert on supplements, but reading Kaprex on
the mfgr site, it appears to be just an expensive food-like
"nutra ceutical" A "healthy balanced diet" ..
and a reasonably healthy digestive system.. should obviate the
need (or benefit) of such supplements. Rhus tox is, in addition
to its value in your immediate need as a "first aid"
remedy for knee.. also possibly of use toward better nutrient
absorption in the digestive system. One of the reasons I studied
& practice homeopathy (instead of herbalism, or nutriceutical
"medicine") is that homeopathy treats "whole
person" .. less so in "first aid" where the focus
of the symptoms is sharp/immediate .. Rhus tox is useful in
"inflammatory" issues in many of the body's tissues /
organs. It is indicated as "first aid" for ligaments in
the knee (and elbow) ... It is difficult for people to
self-diagnose .. even people who've got a lot of training in
homeopathy will see another homeopath (hard to see oneself
objectively...) Rhus tox should make it possible to do without
"anti-inflammatory" drugs, the normal way a person
might check that scenario out would be to try taking less of the
drug .. see if there is a negative result.. if not, after a day
or two passes .. again take less .. and so on "weaning."
Meanwhile, it should not have any effect on the NSAIDs as I think
you know (?) homeopathy is not biochemical and cannot interact in
that way; it is "energy medicine" and acts by causing a
shift toward homeostasis .. movement towards normalcy. If you
feel like it, you can fill out the questionaire on my website
http://www.holistiq.com/homeopathy/questionaire.htm and I can
take a look at it, to see if Rhus Tox looks like a good "chronic"
remedy for you - or if not, perhaps figure out something else.

media" & the phony "pandemic"
Dagny, People in the U.S. (and many other places, I guess) -are
being trained from cradle to grave that they should UNTHINKINGLY
accept authority. It is a well know fact that TV is a social
control mechanism; it inserts "world view" (German:
Weltanschauung) as an unquestioned set of values and
unexplored/unconfirmed "facts." Thus, people who are
regular consumers of mass media (especially when it is from an
early age) have their "reality" ... "PROGRAMMED"
(in the U.S., the content on TV is actually called programming,
in one of those interesting twists where the truth is hidden in
plain view.) Social programming dictates that society respond
fearfully to constant bombardment of PANDEMIC scare tactics made
up of partial/true & partial/lies. Many of us who are aware
of the manipulations cannot help but see the mindless
herd-behavior of cattle being led to slaughter .. there is a word
used in the U.S. by cognoscenti (Italian: those in the know) - to
describe this human herd .. "the Sheeple." You wrote:
What happened to good old sceptisism and questions to ask? Such
old fashioned ideas are not useful to the ruling powers of the
world (mega corporations & highest level of banking)
super-wealthy immortal corporations spend many $billions of their
dollars/euros/etc to influence and control legislature, political
process, and "public opinion" (all the way down to
influencing what textbooks are to be used in bending the will of
youth toward social conformity as "good little consumers.")
What happened to digging for the truth no matter what? Some
people still do. But the truths that they find are not publicized
by the people who own the means of publication ! TV station, ALL
large newspapers & most other means of "mass media"
publication are very tightly controlled - very rarely letting out
a bit of information which detracts from the social
programming-in-progress. Is the world satisfied by being spoonfed
lies that cost lives? In a word: yes. Most of us in
"industrialized nations" are living in gilded cages; we
have little REAL FREEDOM, but we have many choices as to what
colors & fabrics we wish to wear to our jobs as slaves to the
mass-media corporate consumer culture .. which is now on the
brink of consuming the entire planet.. without some pretty strong
changes, the human race could be extinct in less than a century.
It is likely that there are quite a number of the "ultra
rich" people who are more and more becoming convinced that
the world is vastly over-populated by "useless eaters"
(Sheeple) and that a drastic DE-population would be a very good
and useful thing. Apparently TO THAT END, we seem to have quite a
lot of different types of corporate crime involved in creating &
testing various forms of bio-warfare. Persuant to the topic of
this group.. of course- vaccines have been a longterm assault on
"the masses" .. who have been scrupulously conditioned
to worshipfully believe that vaccines are their savior from
disease .. the truth may well be that vaccines are now on the
verge of being deployed as "WMD" weapons of mass
destruction ... it would be quite simple technologically to wipe
out 80% of the population, and thus (in mad-scientist thought)
alleviate all of the pressures currently pushing very rapidly
toward global meltdown. warm wishes, david hartley
