Lynne Stewart should be given compassionate release. Defending an Islamic cleric who was questionable convicted of terrorism was her crime.
Ladar Levison of Lavabit is my hero of the week for standing up to the NSA and for the First Amendment.
Capitalism is based on a measure of non-transparency for profit sake. The less transparent = more profit. A capitalistic heath care system (for profit) permits chemical additives, absurd and FALSE labeling, the inflation of pesticide grown food with (oil refinery – products) chemical additives, NPK, and ultra processing with heat and irradiation. Obesity and disease are being sold as food, for the past 50 years – and maybe longer. It sounds absurd but it is what we are up against. We can advocate for a transformation of the USDA – FDA – in Health Care Reform.
