Rise Up or Die

I’m not a fan of Cornel West, nor do I think Eric Holder should be fired over the AP “scandal.” However, everything else about this article is right on time. It’s an EXCELLENT READ and a call to ACTION!!

Native Americans KNEW the air, land, mountains, rivers, oceans, animals, birds…everything is SACRED. Sacred to our well-being and lives. The greed of the wealthy, corporations and politicians is destroying us all, including them. How evil and stupid is it to think removing mountaintops in poor areas — that break the wind and help control climate — would not cause extreme disaster weather around the globe?

The winds begin in the West Coast. The beautiful mountain ranges here BREAK THE WIND as it reaches turbulent weather in the Mid West and tornado alley. These storms continue to the East Coast. With nothing to break their weather, the East Coast can expect horrendous hurricanes and colder weather. You can see that in your area. The seasons are changing and are extreme.

Native Americans KNEW that the oil and jewels deep in the ground are the VEINS aka the blood of the earth. It takes hundreds, even thousands of years for fossil fuels to regenerate. Trees too. The Rain Forests of Brazil have been a buffer for the entire planet. It too, has been decimated. The ice caps in Antarctica have melted, animals are migrating to areas they’ve never been before, while we are worried about Dancing With The Stars and the latest soap opera on the idiot tube.

Native Americans blessed the animals and food they ate because they KNEW it was for our sustenance and without it we could not live. Our food is being controlled and manipulated in labs to the point where we call it MONSTER FOOD. You wouldn’t want to give these GMO foods/seeds to a dog. It is changing our DNA.

Native Americans knew the water is PRECIOUS. We can go weeks without food, but only a few days without water. It is the MOST CRITICAL need for all life. Corporations have polluted our drinking water. Water is about to be privatized…and it will be expensive.

As this article says, it is time to rebel. ~MY


Rise Up or Die

Joe Sacco and I spent two years reporting from the poorest pockets of the United States for our book “Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt.” We went into our nation’s impoverished “sacrifice zones” — the first areas forced to kneel before the dictates of the marketplace — to show what happens when unfettered corporate capitalism and ceaseless economic expansion no longer have external impediments. We wanted to illustrate what unrestrained corporate exploitation does to families, communities and the natural world. We wanted to challenge the reigning ideology of globalization and laissez-faire capitalism to illustrate what life becomes when human beings and the ecosystem are ruthlessly turned into commodities to exploit until exhaustion or collapse. And we wanted to expose as impotent the formal liberal and governmental institutions that once made reform possible, institutions no longer equipped with enough authority to check the assault of corporate power.

What has taken place in these sacrifice zones — in postindustrial cities such as Camden, N.J., and Detroit, in coalfields of southern West Virginia where mining companies blast off mountaintops, in Indian reservations where the demented project of limitless economic expansion and exploitation worked some of its earliest evil, and in produce fields where laborers often endure conditions that replicate slavery — is now happening to much of the rest of the country. These sacrifice zones succumbed first. You and I are next.

Turmeric Extract Puts Drugs For Knee Osteoarthritis to Shame

Prior to 2005, I was suffering from crippling, painful osteoarthritis. I could predict rain was coming 3 days in advance. Winters were horrendous and I could barely get out of bed or walk. I would sleep with heating pads and wrap my legs up with three or four layers of leggings to stay warm. Refusing to have surgery and take the recommended non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), I researched for natural, healthy pain relief. I found Turmeric and I am pain free today! ~Marion

Laboratory tests have found that turmeric is antioxidant and antimutagenic, as it potentially helps prevent new cancers that are caused by chemotherapy or radiation used to treat existing cancers. Turmeric in the diet may prevent pain from arthritis, bursitis and tendonitis. A volatile oil in the spice is as
effective in relieving pain, under laboratory conditions, as equal amounts of steroids. http://www.nutritionalwellness.com/archives/2006/nov/11_heller.php

CAUTION: The only side effects found with Turmeric is it can cause constipation, sweating and even diarrhea if too much is taken. Limit dosage to 1/2 teaspoon per day.

1/2 teaspoon in 4 oz of water. Drink.

I prefer to add 1/2 tsp. of Turmeric to hot cereal. Just add to the water before boiling and cooking. It also tastes great in soups, vegetable, egg and meat dishes. Feel free to experiment.
Here are 20 reasons to add turmeric to your diet:

1. It is a natural ANTISEPTIC and ANTIBACTERIAL agent, useful in disinfecting cuts and burns.

2. When combined with cauliflower, it has been shown to prevent prostate cancer and stop the growth of existing prostate cancer.

3. Prevented breast cancer from spreading to the lungs in mice.

4. May prevent melanoma and cause existing melanoma cells to commit suicide.

5. Reduces the risk of childhood leukemia.

6. Is a natural LIVER DETOXIFIER.

7. May prevent and slow the progression of ALZHEIMERS disease by removing amyloyd plaque buildup in the brain.

8. May prevent metastases from occurring in many different forms of CANCER.

9. It is a potent natural ANTI-INFLAMMATORY that works as well as many anti-inflammatory drugs but without the side effects.

10. Has shown promise in slowing the progression of MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS in mice.

11. Is a natural PAINKILLER and cox-2 inhibitor.

12. May aid in fat metabolism and help in WEIGHT MANAGEMENT.

13. Has long been used in Chinese medicine as a treatment for DEPRESSION.

14. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, it is a natural treatment for ARTHRITIS and RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS.

15. Boosts the effects of chemo drug Paclitaxel and reduces its side effects.

16. Promising studies are underway on the effects of turmeric on PANCREATIC CANCER.

17. Studies are ongoing in the positive effects of turmeric on MULTIPLE MYELOMA.

18. Has been shown to stop the growth of new blood vessels in TUMORS.

19. Speeds up wound healing and assists in remodeling of damaged skin.

20. May help in the treatment of PSORIASIS and other INFLAMMATORY SKIN CONDITIONS.

Where to buy Turmeric?

Buy Turmeric from a health food store or Indian store (India). Because I use it daily, I buy it in bulk from here: http://amzn.to/HStxFR

Maybe you have a relative or friend who suffers from inflammation due to arthritis or other joint conditions. Do them a favor and get them started on Turmeric. They will be so grateful.

DIY Coconut Oil Deodorant


The human skin is the largest organ of the body. It is porous, so anything we put on the skin absorbs into the body and can either help it…or harm it. Years ago I worked with a woman who had cancerous lumps removed from under her armpits. Her doctor said it was from the chemicals in her deodorant. She was advised to never use deodorant again. At that time, we did not have organic deodorants. I have no idea what she used back in 1975. I am now using this homemade deodorant with tea tree oil for its healing properties and am pleased with it. Let me know if you try it. ~ Marion

Homemade Deodorant Recipe using Coconut Oil

1/3 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup baking soda
1/4 cup arrowroot powder
4 tablespoons cornstarch (this will add an antiperspirant effect to the deodorant.)
Essential oils (optional, but you can use tea tree oil, sweet orange, cinnamon, etc.)

Notes from the article:

This recipe uses coconut oil which will liquefy at 76 degrees (it will remain solid at any temp under 76 degrees). I live in Florida and this deodorant stays a paste-like consistency in my bathroom. However, my husband uses the bathroom upstairs and, at times, it turns into a thick liquid-y consistency. He doesn’t find it a problem, though. He just dabs his finger into it, massages it into his underarms, and then rinses his hands afterward.

I’ve heard of people putting their homemade deodorants in cleaned out store-bought deodorant containers but it didn’t work for me. My DIY deodorant leaked out the bottom of the container and was a gooey mess.
Instead, I store this coconut oil deodorant in a small glass jar and I keep it in my medicine cabinet.

To apply, I take a small amount and rub it together with my hands to soften and then rub it into my underarms like a lotion.

Me and my husband both use this deodorant and absolutely love it. We’d never switch back to store-bought. You really must give it a try.
