  • Re: The 112th Congress - The first Orange-American to be elected Speaker

    According to a friend of mine who was a nutrition major at Cornell, a Frito-Lay executive gave them this advice in a guest lecture: "If you want to make money in the food industry, whenever you can, sell air. If you can't sell air, sell salt. And if you can't sell salt, sell water."

    Probably sound advice, unfortunately.
    If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

      Yeah, it's crazy how much the water industry makes when the stuff out of the tap isn't really that much different.

        It makes me laugh that people pay $3 for bottled water. I mean I can understand if you lived in a third world country it makes sense but in an industrialized country? It is the biggest scam on Earth!

          The only time I do is if I want to carry around water and don't have a bottle already. I sometimes forget to bring a bottle when I go to the gym. Otherwise I have a Camelbak or other bottle I bring to work where we have Culligan or something like that and I have a dispenser on my fridge. No reason to buy bottles.

          I've been told that Minneapolis, MN, has the same water filtration that Dasani has...Dasani doesn't have the smell though...

            $3 is a small price to pay to avoid fluorinated water that will give the UN shock troops access to your mind.

              If you want to see the bottled water industry, come to Poland Springs in Maine. I'm not sure any of it comes out of a spring, they negotiate with towns for the rights to the water, their is a non stop parade of Stainless tankers on RTE 26 carrying the well water to their several bottling plants, its really unreal as too many wells and how many tractor trailers carry the water around the plants. Million and millions of gallons every day get bottled.
              I swear there ain't no heaven but I pray there ain't no hell.

                There are loads of other ways to sell water than just in bottle form, too - soft drinks, "fruit" punch, etc.

                  Don't kid yourself. Obama's in your bottled water, too.

                    Much of Monsanto's seed products are specifically genetically modified, to make them resistant to Monsanto produced agricultural chemicals, such as "Round Up" herbicide
                    The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved plantings of three genetically engineered (GE) crops in as many weeks, including Monsanto Co.'s Roundup Ready sugar beets and alfalfa that are engineered to tolerate Roundup Ready weed-killing herbicide. The USDA on February 11 also legalized, without restriction, the world's first GE corn crop meant for biofuel production. Biotech giant Syngenta's Event 3272 seed corn will simplify ethanol production and is not meant to feed animals or humans.
                    http://www.csmonitor.com/Commentary/...e-undemocratic
                    What�s wrong with having a few corporations control virtually every aspect of our sustenance? Far from abstract, the genetic and proprietary control of our diets by a handful of companies (Monsanto, DuPont, and Syngenta combined own an astounding 47 percent of the global seed market) directly robs consumers and farmers of the most basic right to choose what they will eat and grow.
                    http://www.reuters.com/article/2010/...25765020100108
                    DuPont estimates through its branded products and licensing, Monsanto has 98 percent of the U.S. soybean market and 79 percent of the corn market, along with 60 percent of the corn and soy germplasm licensed in the U.S.

                    "The ag biotech trait market is firmly in the grip of a single supplier, acting as a bottleneck to competition and choice... it also threatens the global goals for agriculture in the 21st Century doubling the world's food supply by 2050," the DuPont report states.

                    Officials with St. Louis, Missouri-based Monsanto declined to comment but last month filed its own report with USDA and the Justice Department denying anti-competitive conduct.

                        Coming Soon:

                        Starting in Georgia....................

                        http://motherjones.com/blue-marble/2...enalty-georgia
                        Georgia State Rep. Bobby Franklin—who last year proposed making rape and domestic violence "victims" into "accusers"—has introduced a 10-page bill that would criminalize miscarriages and make abortion in Georgia completely illegal. Both miscarriages and abortions would be potentially punishable by death: any "prenatal murder" in the words of the bill, including "human involvement" in a miscarriage, would be a felony and carry a penalty of life in prison or death.
                        The bill contends that Georgia is exempt from upholding Supreme Court decisions like Roe v. Wade because the Constitution's Article I only governs five crimes: counterfeiting, piracy, high seas felonies, offenses against the law of nations, and treason. According to the bill, since murder is not one of those five crimes, it should be solely governed by the state.

                          This is from the bill;
                          Such term (prenatal murder) does not include a naturally occurring expulsion of a fetus known medically
                          as a 'spontaneous abortion' and popularly as a 'miscarriage' so long as there is no human
                          involvement whatsoever in the causation of such event.
                          So they lied about making a miscarriage a criminal act. The guy wants to ban abortions and prosecute those that perform them. Why don't they just say so? Why lie about it?

                            I had to inspect the aquafina plant in Detroit once. It's tap water from the city treatment plant. They further filter it, reverse osmosis, and then ozonate to kill the smell. I think they bottle flavored water there too. Maybe it was Gatorade or Powerade.
