The US FDA has helped create a new Tuberculosis plague that threatens us all

In 1972, that (FDA) task force published a report acknowledging that the use of antimicrobials in food-producing animals was associated with the development of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria. Over the past several weeks, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been in the news for its stance on antibiotic use in farm animals. Yet instead of making good on its 1977 promise to limit these drugs in livestock, the agency continues to move in the opposite direction.

2012- Indian TB cases ‘can’t be cured’- Tuberculosis which appears to be totally resistant to antibiotic treatment has been reported for the first time by Indian doctors. Concern over drug-resistant strains of TB is growing, with similar ‘incurable’ TB emerging in Italy and Iran.

Doctors in Mumbai said 12 patients had a “totally drug resistant” form of the infection, and three have died. The Indian Health Ministry is investigating the cases and has sent a team of doctors to Mumbai.
TB is one of the world’s biggest killers, second only to HIV among infectious diseases.

It seems rather clear how American agriculture policy is helping create new antibiotic resistant forms of diseases that endanger world populations.

Autism and Mercury

So they “laid that myth to rest”, right?
Actually, no. The entire focus of Autism in re Toxic Metals got sidetracked onto vaccines with a mercury preservative. Which, some pointed out, CONTAINED FAR LESS MERCURY THAN THE AMOUNT PRESENTLY IN ENVIRONMENTAL SOURCES and that has to be emphasized because the ENVIRONMENTAL SOURCES somehow dropped out of the equation. Chemical industry, M.I. C., anybody? Like mercury released into the environment from metals refining, or perhaps from the manufacture AND USE of ammunition? Like the mercury fulminate, which is a water-soluble mercury compound, nitrated mercury, explosive, used as a detonator/primer compound.
When it burns, combusts explosively, does exactly what the product is designed to do, it kills one way quickly. Tosses a somewhat more massive chunk of metal in the general direction of a “target”. Meaning, in the case of Wars and Police actions, the primary intent of firearms, A Human Being Whose Life Is Considered To Be Worth Less Than The Life Of The Person Shooting At Him/Her.
When it burns that way, the mercury fulminate isn’t destroyed, it’s vaporized. If you took a two pound brick, broke it, smashed it, turned it into two pounds of dust, it’s still two pounds of the original components of the brick. It didn’t go away. If you dissolve it in water, not as completely as mercury fulminate does, it’s now polluting a larger mass of water and people, other animals and plants can now ingest it.
So, is the prevalence of documented Autism cases around military installations ONLY a result of more accurate reporting, more accurate testing available to Military Dependents?
It WAS described that way about the Vaccines connection. It minimizes the high probability of modern firearms, concentrated in Military Bases, firing ranges etc. being a cause.

Just like the “higher reporting and diagnosis level” was put forth about military dependents and the use of Vaccines.

Also in ammunition are other metals, copper and lead being significant. Would YOU willingly drink water with copper sulfate dissolved into it? Seriously, would you? Before you answer consider this information about the use of Copper Sulfate in pesticides.
Military bases use shitloads of Pesticides. “Shitload” is an esoteric eco-science term which, if you don’t recognize its validity you’re probably not an eco-scientist.
Military bases kill native vegetation, insects, mammals, birds… yeah, birds. Birds cause extreme damage to military aircraft and also are the hosts for lice and fleas which are in turn the hosts for some really deadly diseases like Leishmaniasis Donovani, caused by a flagellate paramecium that’s freaking huge by germ standards, a half-micron long.
So they poison the whole place. That’s what Agent Orange is, a weed-killer. The part of Agent Orange that causes human deaths due to absolute devastation of the endocrine system, isn’t even the active ingredient, it’s a dioxin, a chemical that is produced along with the active ingredient but which they can’t remove from the finished product without destroying the finished product. Can’t do that, now can we? Human lives are cheaper and worth less than the Finished Product. All Hail The Finished Product!
Copper sulfate is also that blue-green patina that forms on copper compounds like brass. In places where sulfur is burned, like Coal Burning, coal being high in sulphur, the sulphur is dissolved in rain water (or, in the case of smog, humidity. The water droplets don’t have to be big enough to be noticed as “rain” or “snow” to be actual water, see the earlier reference to the Two Pound Brick) and forms Sulfuric Acid. Would you voluntarily pour the contents of your car battery into your drinking water and take a bath in it? how about drink it, serve the water to your kids? Strong hint, you already do.
Or rather, your friendly neighborhood Corporate Oligarchy does.
But, the problem doesn’t just lie within a few kilometers of military bases, now, does it?
So, does militarization get ruled out?
Not so fast, bucko. Since militarization, as the Military Industrial Complex apologists tell us, is the price we pay for a Modern Industrialized Society, there are military bases everywhere. And industrialized societies have more military bases, and more sophisticated weaponry and more sophisticated pesticides and herbicides.

That in itself wouldn’t be enough.
Now add in that Commercial pesticides and herbicides are of say, a weaker or not exactly the same chemical conformation as say, DDT or Agent Orange.
But Roundup, and other agricultural and horticultural herbicides, just as a for-instance, also have those nasty dioxins in the Finished Product as A.O. does.

The Chemical Industry, Oil Industry, Military Industrial Complex Death-Monger industry, Coal Extraction, Big Pharma and Big Agra industries who send their retarded minions to “debunk” the connections between their products and things like Air Force Staff Sergeant Howard Lanning dying from the toxic residue of the Agent Orange he had to handle as part of his service, saying that any claims of Agent Orange poisoning is an advanced scam perpetrated by trial lawyers…

Yeah, THOSE retards, who get their information from Industry Sources who have a vested interest in denying their guilt and liability for the deaths of human beings, caused by their products, yeah, THOSE sources…

Will dismiss every word of what was written here as sheer poppycock. Without any more evidence than an industry smear campaign against people who question their assumptions.

So, Mr or Ms Industry Spokesperson, Denier of Everything, how about it? Will YOU drink the runoff water from a strip mine, a firing range, a large agricultural operation, drink the pesticides and herbicides? The genetically mutated life forms from plants and animals as served directly to you by your supermarkets and McDonalds? Indirectly like the genetically modified bacteria like Resistant Staph, Strep, Tuberculosis, mutated by the large doses of antibiotics and steroids served up to the cattle, chickens, hogs, turkeys in the Concentrated Animal Feeding Enterprises that the Agricultural Industry and their paid-off regulators in the EPA say are “safe”?
If you live downstream from any such industry, you already do.

Maybe any of the Fanatic Extremist Disciples of Bill O’Reilly or Rush Limbaugh or Sarah Palin or Glenn Beck or the Late Paul Harvey and similar Industry Financed LIARS should just do as previously suggested, drink some concentrated version of the poisons your Industrial Sponsor insidiously feed to us and OUR kids, and, you stupid bastards, YOU and YOUR kids as well.
Drink you a big ol’ cup of sulfuric acid, that won’t prove me right or you wrong but it would remove you from the breeding pool.

That would be a bonus.

Dit Fromage!

Ah, photography and cheese, together again. In French.
New concept, Calendar Girls posing with … CHEESE!
It doesn’t translate very well, culturally, or didn’t. “Say Cheese” becomes “Dit Fromage! Dit Fromage!”
Warning, the webpage is in French. So for those right wing types who are still pissed off at the French for not just allowing McDonalds to take over their country… Too bad.
You lost, EU won, get over it.

So the French have taken up the American bastardization of what was French technology in the first place, photography. Maybe now the Americans will take up something more than a mere shadow of French raw milk cheese. Instead of cheese made from Pasteurized milk. Which doesn’t make too much sense, since cheese is rotten milk in its beginning, why Pasteurize out the bacteria and fungi which make it if you’re just going to put them back later?
You know, that was the “beef” McDonalds AND the Texas Cattle Raisers and Breeders Association had with them? Not so much a really well-deserved bit of Anti-American cultural snobbery.

But the French and everybody else in the EU demanded (How DARE those Foreign Sovereign Nations make demands of American CorporaFascist Rulers about doing business in their pipsqueak country which has been a nation for a thousand years longer than America?) that the milk and meat served come from EU inspected sources.

That would include having EU approved inspections in “our” Meat Factory mass-produced Concentrated Animal Feeding Enterprises.

Which are themselves a spectacularly bad idea and once (hopefully) American politicians grow enough balls to shut them the Hell down, it’ll be a toxic waste disposal operation. In fact it already is. In a grim bit of Karma, the boson (very large aquifer) under the Permian Basin (where the Bush family has some really deep oil and gas wells that go BELOW the water level of the boson and where Bush has his ranch, now for sale, directly in the middle of the Permian Basin at Crawford) now has traces of the antibiotics from the CAFE raised animals in it. This boson is called “fossil” water because it’s been developing ever since the Permian Basin was under a shallow sea, which hasn’t been for the past 63 million years or so.
Now the boson (until they fractured the rock above and to the side of it drilling for oil) HAD been feeding from water which took 10,000 years to percolate down through the limestone. Carbon filtering done Right, man.
So people from the east slope of the Rockies, as far north as southern Kansas and as far westEAST (damn that was sloppy) as at least the Dallas area are paying extra for filtration and purification of what used to be the purest source of fresh water in America. So we don’t have to drink the Bush family bullshit. Literally.

The French and most of the rest of the EU didn’t want any part of that kind of destruction visited on their people for the sake of being able to conveniently eat a Big Mac.

To make matters worse, and really piss of the American super-“patriots” who demand full sovereignty, but only for America… The EU bans or at least restricts imports of American beef, dairy, venison, goat, mutton… because of a disease that was bred in those Concentrated Animal Feeding enterprises, Mad Cow.
Which the Right Wing Denial Machine of course denies. They also deny that the use of antibiotics in these Meat Factories, both to attempt to minimize the risk of contagion like Tuberculosis, (a bovine disease that spreads to humans) and to stimulate growth hormones in the cattle “raw production sources” could possibly lead to a superbug, a form of Tuberculosis that is resistant to all forms of antibiotics.
O, Heavens no! The Superbug was mutated in HUMAN tuberculosis patients, numbering in the millions, and treated with antibiotics, not in the Cattle which not only provide the major vector for that particular bacterium, are routinely dosed with Antibiotics and which also outnumber the total number of Human TB patients by a factor of hundreds to one. According to the “scientists” of the Right Wing Denial Machine. The “Scientists” who are paid by the corporations to find some way to deny all culpability of the Corporations.

For those Right Wing Denial Buffoons who deny that Cigarettes, deliberately burning a toxic weed and inhaling the smoke, could possibly cause any diseases, or that burning large amounts of petroleum and having millions of tons of extra petrochemicals in our soil, air and water could possibly harm the environment in any way… Screw you.

The Pasteurization process enabled the cheap wines and beers that the morons drink, enabled Velveeta, and other Kraft products.
And was invented by Louis Pasteur, who made further advances in microbiology that form the base for the profits of some of the largest corporations in America. And for a while at least took the sheer terror of rabies outbreaks down a bit.

The Pasteur Institute is the group who have studied Mad Cow Disease and the Resistant Tuberculosis the most, and funded by France and by the EU.

McDonalds and the Texas Cattle Raisers and Breeders Association, who are potentially the largest beneficiaries of this French funded research, don’t fund any of it.

Instead they buy lawyers and Professional Denier “scientists” also known as “CorporaFascist Whores” and of course bribing American politicians and fixing elections and funding the so-called “Grass Roots” TeaBags to “ease excessive regulation”.

If they truly want to eat and drink and breathe poison, there ARE quicker ways to do it. But they also are insisting that they have the God given right to poison THEIR KIDS, and beyond them, the G.G.R. to poison everybody else as well, and to by taking full control of the food production on the planet, they claim the right to poison everybody else on the planet as well.

Dit Fromage!
