One simple word.

It can build up or tear down.

It can send your spirit soaring to heights unknown, or crashing to depths unfathomable.

One simple word.

And yet, we are careless.

Words are tossed around like so much chaff in the wind, never to be taken back, affecting the lives in their path in ways never intended nor realized.

And we live in their confines. The worlds we create for ourselves from their constructs. The worlds we allow others to create for us by their acceptance.

A word is thrown. Someone catches it and spins a reality from it to live in. We live and die by the power of words.

Proverbs 18:21 (ESV):  Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.

The power to create and destroy.

Our words.

The words that we speak and write every minute of every day. The power of which we take for granted and carelessly give to others and by so doing, allow them to create our destinies for us. The power that we throw away because we do not realize the treasure that we are gifted with.

And so we are constrained in a world that we did not create for ourselves. That has been manufactured to keep us confined, ignorant and enslaved to those who do understand the power of one simple word. And use it against us. For their own benefit.

And the power to dissolve the chains that bind us lies in one simple word.


Belief in your power.

The power that each and every one of us has been gifted with to create a world to live or die in.

Our choice. Not someone else’s.

And the chains dissolve when we realize the power of our words, own that power, and use it to speak life. That is the power of creation. And it is ours.

Let freedom be spoken.

A new paper finds that the active ingredients of the commonly used herbicides, RoundUp, Kamba and 2,4-D, (glyphosate, dicamba and 2,4-D, respectively), each alone cause antibiotic resistance at concentrations well below label application rates. The paper also finds that inert ingredients (surfactants) that are commonly used in some herbicide formulations and processed foods also cause antibiotic resistance. These authors first observed this antibiotic resistance in their paper published in in the American Society of Microbiology’s journal mBio in 2015, and this follow up study was conducted in order to identify which ingredients in herbicides were responsible.

The new study found an antibiotic resistant response was caused by both the tested surfactants, Tween80 and CMC. These both are also used as emulsifiers in foods like ice cream and in medicines, and both cause antibiotic resistance at concentrations allowed in food and food-grade products.

Finally, something to sink our teeth into regarding holding Monsanto liable for at least a portion of the harm it has caused. Here is the brief of the lawsuit outlining the corruption and sidestepping by Monsanto using cherry-picked, dubious science to defend its continued poisoning of the public.

I want what I want and I want it now!

When we are children, we only know what we want. And we only know that we want it now. As we grow up, we begin to realize that we cannot always have what we want when we want it. That is, until now.

Charlotte Iserbyt’ s book, “The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America,” states:

“The billions of dollars being spent by the federal government to destroy educational freedom must be halted, and that can only be done by getting American legislators to understand that the American people want to remain a free people, in charge of their own lives and the education of their children.”

I contend that the legislatures understand this, have understood it for years, but also understand that a free populace is a dangerous one, and their best interests are served by manipulating that populace to serve them. Freedom be damned. People that only know the gratification of immediate wants and desires with no long-term goals are people that can be controlled by the perceived ability to obtain whatever shiny object they desire at the moment. And public education is one of the main tools put in place to achieve that state of deliberate short-sightedness. Read the rest of this entry »
