Taxpayer Subsidies for Unhealthy Foods
What if billions in tax dollars were invested in healthier options rather than given to corporations to subsidize the very foods that are making us sick?

# – # – # – # – #   

I was especially shocked (“I’m shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!” Captain Renault in Casablanca) that the Gooferment has give “hundreds of billions” to subsidize junk food.

Argh!

I’m not a fan of any taxing of anything. So, I’ll respectfully disagree with the idea of taxing the junk food. (Too much like Michael Bloomberg!)

But removing all subsidies is an idea I can support vigorously.

I never understood “parity payments”, “minimum price”, and other Corporate Welfare payoffs.

Argh!

Matter of fact, they could have stopped after “Taxpayer Subsidies”. I don’t want anything “subsidized”!

Recently, all I seem to get is “spinning tabs”. Opera and Fivefox don’t have a problem.

I’m confused.

INTERESTING: On “paycheck equality”

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

An interesting paper on “paycheck equality”. IMHO it distracts from the hidden reality that all us workers in Corporate America face in the workplace every day. Only answer is to own your own business. Great place America. Everyone should recognize that they are really in their own business. Even us “wage slaves”. We’re in “our own business”, but only have one Customer, our employer. Need to diversify to minimize that risk. :-) fjohn

CLOUD: AMAZON merges KINDLE CLOUD with AMAZON CLOUD

Monday, April 21, 2014

… with unknown impact on me?

# – # – # – # – #   

Dear Kindle Customer,

As a past user of personal documents on Kindle devices or reading apps, we are pleased to let you know about some improvements we’ve made to how personal documents work.

Personal documents are now in Amazon Cloud Drive: Starting today, all personal documents that you have archived in your Kindle Library will be available to access, delete, organize, and share from your Amazon Cloud Drive. You can see these documents in a new “My Send-to-Kindle Docs” folder alongside all of your saved content such as photos and personal videos.

There is no action required on your part. Your personal documents features will continue to work just as they have in the past. And as always, you can use Manage Your Kindle to see a list of your documents, re-deliver them to Kindle devices and free reading apps, delete them, or turn off auto-saving of documents to the cloud. Documents will be delivered just as they have in the past and you will continue to have 5 GB of free cloud storage for your personal documents. Just “Send Once, Read Everywhere.”

Documents stored in their native format: Also starting today, new documents that you save to the cloud with Send to Kindle will be stored in their native format (e.g. MS Word, TXT) so you can access them anywhere from Amazon Cloud Drive.

Please note: Your usage of Amazon Cloud Drive is subject to the Amazon Cloud Drive Terms of Use.

Sincerely,
The Docs Team

INSPIRATIONAL: Rubin ‘Hurricane’ Carter, Wrongfully Convicted Boxer, Dies

Rubin ‘Hurricane’ Carter, Wrongfully Convicted Boxer, Dies at 76

Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, the boxer whose wrongful murder conviction became an international symbol of racial injustice, has died at 76.

Mr. Carter spent 19 years in prison for three murders at a tavern in Paterson, N.J., in 1966. His ordeal and the alleged racial motivations behind it were publicized in Bob Dylan’s 1975 song “Hurricane,” several books and a 1999 film starring Denzel Washington.

# – # – # – # – #   

I wonder how much of his life he lost. Over and above the 19 years. Has to take a toll on you. Life is tough enough with having extra burdens placed on you.

Requiescat In Pacem, Hurricane.

RANT: Unelected bureaucrats kidnap a child

WND EXCLUSIVE
‘SNATCHED’ GIRL’S PARENTS LAUNCH NEW OFFENSIVE
Supporters accuse Boston Children’s Hospital of ‘psychological experiment’
BOB UNRUH

*** begin quote ***

BCH then presented the family with a new treatment plan to discontinue all medical care and medications and which forbade any second opinions, Liberty Counsel explained. When the parents refused to sign the new treatment plan and requested that Justina be discharged so they could take her back to Tufts Medical Center, BCH called DCF, and DCF prevented the family from discharging Justina. Fourteen months later, DCF still retains custody of Justina.

*** and ***

Bujoreanu is researching Somatoform under a grant from the federal National Institutes of Health. Any ward of the state is subject to research being performed on them without their consent, even if the research is not primarily for the ward’s benefit.

Sources have reported Justina has spent most of her time in state custody locked in a psychiatric ward.

*** end quote ***

Talk about a conflict of interest.

NIH has a lot of explaining to do.
