What message are our legislators sending to voters, when they publicly admit they haven't done their job? How many bills are passed each year that policymakers haven't even bothered to read? This is disgraceful. This is called dereliction of duties and we must demand a stop to this practice.

CDC Propaganda claims that vaccines prevent disease and save lives, the CFR map shows that the highest disease outbreaks occur within vaccinated populations.

Right off, and at the very beginning, I say this article will cause rumblings and a stir amongst many, if not all, on both sides of the vaccine safety issue, especially with vaccine apologists. My reason for saying that is because what I discuss is strictly my evaluation of the interactive data map showing communicable infectious diseases globally, as prepared by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), which points out some grave problems regarding vaccine statistics, in my opinion. Please study the map before reading on.

More than 700 chefs - including Tom Colicchio, José Andrés, Art Smith and Sam Talbot - are urging members of Congress to support legislation to mandate labeling of genetically modified foods and to oppose efforts to block state GMO labeling laws.

"This is about transparency in the marketplace and preventing consumer deception," agreed Colin O'Neil, director of government affairs at the Center for Food Safety. "Consumers can only make informed decisions when they are given the information to do so. We require labels on everything from juice from concentrate to foods that have been irradiated; why should genetic engineering be any different?"

American workers and motorists got some badly-needed relief this week when the price of oil plunged to its lowest level in years. The oil price has fallen by about 25 percent since its peak back in June of $105 a barrel.

There are many global reasons why gas prices are falling, but the major one isn't being widely reported. America has become in the last several years an energy-producing powerhouse. And sorry, Mr. President, I'm not talking about the niche "green energy" sources you are so weirdly fixated with.

The world is bound up in a paper money/credit explosion that can only end badly. What it really means is impoverishment for millions of people, most of whom are totally oblivious to the roaring undercurrent.

There is little wisdom in announcing an economic crash after the fact. Yet some people get upset that I continue with ongoing warnings of a coming financial "pandemic." Seeing the probabilities before they happen is the only prediction that is worthwhile. Afterwards is merely reporting the obvious.

Panama fined a US biotechnology company's local facility that "repeatedly violated" the nation's permitting and regulatory laws as it worked to develop the world's first genetically-modified salmon. The 2012 infractions were first made public on Tuesday.

AquaBounty Technologies, a company licensed by the US government to foster what could be the world's first genetically-modified (GM) meat, is carrying out GM-salmon research in Panama. Neither Panama nor the US has given clearance to sell GM salmon, but, if regulators approve its application, AquaBounty may become the first to sell GM meat in the US. "AquaBounty is really out front on this - the current case will set an important precedent," Dana Perls, a food and technology campaigner at Friends of the Earth, told Inter Press Service (IPS) news agency. "From what we know, there are about 35 other genetically modified species in the development pipelines in other companies. So depending on what happens in this case, we'll likely either see a flow of other permits or this will demonstrate that there isn't room on the market for GM meat or seafood."

The "officials" in Tawas, Michigan had a man and woman caged for keeping chickens on their property.

They want to control our food. Keeping chickens should not get you arrested. This is hardly the first instance of something like this happening. This is the outcome of a legislative move to criminalize backyard farms and small, residential farming operations.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, California's coast faces a new threat. Oil companies are fracking the ocean floor just offshore - and state and federal officials seem unconcerned or out of the loop about the danger.

On dry land, fracking has been an environmental menace for years from Pennsylvania to Texas to North Dakota. But Californians only recently discovered that oil and gas companies are fracking our state as well, blasting huge volumes of water mixed with toxic chemicals into the earth to release fossil fuels. Now we've learned that oil companies are also fracking the ocean floor. This dangerous process is already happening in federal waters in the Santa Barbara Channel, where an infamous 1969 oil spill polluted our ocean and beaches with millions of gallons of oil, and federal officials recently approved a new fracking project.

For years, the country has had an "immense" methane leak that wasn't spotted in the southwestern U.S. until researchers were evaluating satellite data.

That result hints that U.S. Environmental Protection Agency might underestimate leaks of methane, or natural gas, significantly. A satellite image of atmospheric methane concentrations over the continental U.S. shows a bright red hot spot over the Four Corners area of New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona and Utah. The image used data from 2003 to 2009.

As impossible as this should be in America, the land of the free and the home of religious liberty, it is happening as we speak in Idaho, one of the most conservative states in the union.

There, in Coeur D'Alene, ordained ministers Donald Knapp and his wife Evelyn are going to spend 180 days in jail and be fined $1000 a day for politely declining to perform a sodomy-based marriage ceremony.

A Letter to Commissioner King and the New York State Education Department:

I have played your game for the past two years. As an educator, I have created my teaching portfolio with enough evidence so I can prove that I am doing my job over the course of the school year. I am testing my students on material that they haven't yet learned in September, and then re-testing them midway through the year, and then again at the end of the year to track and show their growth.
