CONFIRMED: Psychiatric Manual DSM-IV-TR Labels free Thinkers, non conformers as Mentally Ill

"It is now confirmed by USWGO News that the DSM-IV-TR Manual labels free thinkers, non conformers, civil disobedient advocates, those that question authority, and people considered hostile toward the government (aka Oath keepers, survivalist, and local militias) as mentally ill with the illness titled “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD."

So it is official, anyone who can think, create, act independently according to their own good sense and judgement is not a robot who can be told what to do and therefore needs to be drugged to zombie state.

Yeah, that makes sense.

If you are an insane, totalitarian control freak!

Per white rice is moderately inflammatory as is white bread. Sugar is strongly inflammatory and provides virtually zero nourishment.

Inflammation causes pain, cardiovascular disease risk and is responsible for speeding up the aging process. Monica Reinagel's book "The Inflammation-Free Diet Plan" explains how the foods you eat can make make inflammation worse or reduce inflammation to improve your health risks and help you to feel better and lose weight.

If you are the sort of person who likes to do things by hand, there is a great site where you can check out the inflammation rating and nutrient content of a great many foods. It is

Farmer Debunks Corporate Propaganda Against Proposed Law to Label Genetically Modified Food

I've been a farmer for more than 40 years. While I no longer live or farm in California, I do co-manage 120 acres of farmland in Vermont, and I know that a GMO labeling law passed in California will have widespread implications for consumers and farmers in every state in the country. As a farmer who has experience in both conventional and organic farming, I’m compelled to address the anti-labeling campaign’s so-called 'concerns' for farmers and consumers.

Edible dispersant could provide more eco-friendly way to fight oil spills

Some people believe that there’s no problem that peanut butter, chocolate and whipped cream can’t solve. These people could be onto something with news that a team of researchers has developed a new, safer oil dispersant that uses edible ingredients found in the aforementioned trio of treats. The new dispersant could save the lives of thousands of birds and animals caught in environmental catastrophes.

Up The Spices To Lower The Weight

The History of Medical Tyranny with Dr. Peter Glidden

Some quotes from the video by Dr Peter Glidden.

The treatments doctors administer for chronic disease DO NOT WORK!

Your MD is the number one cause of death in America at present. 780,000 Americans die a year from medical admistered treatments. More than cancer, more than heart disease, more than any other single cause of death.

The medical dostore is not trained in medical science. He is training in a very small sub-section of it - reductionistic, allopathic, pharmaceutical medicine.

Your MD does not believe your body has the ability to fix itself.

If you are drinking fluoridated water you are being dumbed down.

Deliberate Destruction of Biodiversity

Small Farmers of Heritage-Breed Pigs Under Attack in Michigan.

There are a few ways you, too, can get involved to express your opinion and help get this ISO rescinded. Remember this impacts not only the state of Michigan, but could also set a worrisome precedent that affects the rest of the United States as well. FTCLDF explained:

“There are reports that a number of other states are looking to see whether Michigan DNR gets away with enforcing this ISO because, if they do, other states will be trying to implement the exact same thing.”

To get involved and take a stand to protect your right to food freedom and small farmer’s rights:

Sign the online petition opposing the ISO
Send a fax to Governor Snyder asking him to order MDNR to rescind the ISO
Follow up with phone calls to let Governor Snyder know that we will not let up until justice is rendered and the ISO rescinded (517-335-7858)

A German Protestant clergyman, confined to a concentration camp in the Second World War, said of the Nazis:

First they came for the communists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the socialists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me.
