F#!k Monsanto: Go Vegan, Go Organic

I didn’t go vegan because I’m an animal lover. I love nature and wild life, but I’m not so keen about pets. Animal cruelty is not even on my radar when I see a veal sandwich or a medium rare steak. I’ll admit that I don’t flinch an eye when I see those videos of animals with their throats cut on the meatpacking line. If it’s me against a chicken on a deserted island, the chicken will lose. I see cows, pigs, and chickens as food and understandably so because I grew up like most people. However, the way the meat industry operates today is killing the world... 

Basic Income - Basic Income Ontario Pilot

How Basic Income is a Subsidy for the One Percent

The Province of Ontario is planning to implement a Basic Income pilot. The 1% loves the idea of Basic Income because it will guarantee their profits from continuing planned obsolesce and higher automation (Elon Musk: Robots will Take Your Jobs and the Government Will Pay Your Salary).

US Renewable Energy Grows, but Government Corruption Stalls Growth

Renewable energy grew by 50% from 2007 to 2013, and now accounts to 12% of all energy use in the United States. However, uncertain and unclear energy policy stalled what could have been a real green energy revolution, according to New Grid. How much of a role did ALEC play? In 2013 alone, lazy and corrupt state legislators who get paid by ALEC to introduce laws written by corporations introduced 77 laws for big oil. In 2014, ALEC will look to tax homeowners who install solar panels. Senator Ted Cruz said on Monday that he will fight to deregulate fracking, approve Keystone...
