YES!!!!! While I'm still never going to run a Tough Mudder (the words 'Burning Man' are enough to keep me far, far away), I applaud the hell out of you for tackling this challenge with the sole motivator of getting to write about the misery later. ;)
On the surface this seems like something I'd support but the more I think about it, it's seems like a NO vote from me. Here's why:
-If you're not a deadbeat with the cheapo insurance like the General or Freeway, seriously how often do you really ever switch insurance companies? My parents have had AAA since 1974 and I've had the same insurance since I graduated from college. Other than the company being bought by Nazis, I don't know what will cause me to switch considering I'm happy with them,
-I've been hit too many times by deadbeats without insurance. Anything that makes it more expensive for these people, I'm against.

While Romney proselytizes about stopping women from having abortions and likes lots of births, he has represented a company that has been linked to possibly tens of thousands of spontaneous abortions and children never born.
What's the difference between using a vacuum cleaner to kill a fetus or killing it with chemicals?
" it’s alarming how little is known about critical chapters of his business biography. Nothing spells that out more clearly than his ties to Monsanto whose dark history features scandals involving PCBs, Agent Orange, bovine growth hormone, NutraSweet, IUD, genetically modified (GM) seed and herbicides, reaching back to the 1970s and ’80s. That’s when Monsanto was the largest consulting client of Romney’s employer, Bain & Company, and when Romney helped move Monsanto from chemical colossus to genetic giant, trading one set of environmental controversies for another."
"Roundup has long been a top-selling weed killer. But now researchers have found that one of Roundup’s inert ingredients can kill human cells, particularly embryonic, placental and umbilical cord cells."
Roundup ready crops are those that have been genetically modified to tolerate being drenched in Monsanto's patented and expensive weed killer. The built in pesticide producing genes in every cell of the plants also cause their own problems.
Don't get mad, get even.
Vote Yes on Proposition 37 to label Genetically Modified Food.
My hope is that any addict who suffers unsustainable symptoms can find peace and sobriety. My hat is off to all who are involved in aiding fellows in achieving freedom from addiction. Whatever works. Just don't drink or use today.
It is an excellent essay regarding hunting.This article is very much interesting.I like it.
It's easy to grow a lot of your own food once you have a garden established. Things like arugula, lettuce, berries and other vegetables can be grown wherever a lawn thrives. Goggle "how to grow food" for ideas on creating a garden.
This looks like a great event
Sept. 29, 2009 Ted "No Comment" Koehn signed our yearly contract with Costco agreeing to pay us $11 / hour. All $0.25 bonuses per year mysteriously disappeared and everyone with "seniority" went back down to Company Minimum (or damn near it).
I think those brown people would prefer not to work among poisons. Higher incidences of health problems, in particular birth defects, are one of the reasons Cesar Chavez spoke out in favor of organics. Their working conditions should be better in many ways but this benefit, in addition to the pesticide and herbicide runoff into water, were ignored by the Stanford study and New York article. After reading the times article my first question, as it should always be in this age of budget cuts to desperate universities, was "who funded it?". Thanks for letting me know.

Wow, that's the kind of genetic modification that I can live with.
The clowns at Monsanto are claiming that what they are doing has been going on for thousands of years...sorry Charlie, I've never seen a fish jump up and mate with a tomato to produce frost tolerance or seen soil bacteria hump plants and insert their DNA into Bacilus thurengiensis corn that blows up bugs--and people's stomachs that eat enough of it.
Bravo for the CRFG and please vote YES on Prop 37 to label GMOs.
If you are interested in plants or agronomy or human health, check out this great video that just came out.
Our child had developed food allergies to many food groups and we were mystified as to why? We are healthy, eat well, get plenty of rest, take vitamins,
live in an unpolluted area. Then we found out.
"Leaky gut syndrome" It's basically where food leaks out of the intestines before it can be digested and converted into a form that the body can use. The body forms antibodies to the undigested food and whenever you eat it you get the allergies.
The best Pediatrician in San Francisco came up with a staggeringly simple method to prevent it.
"Stop eating genetically modified food".
Turns out that plants that are genetically modified to produce a toxin that bursts insects' stomachs also transfer the DNA to stomach bacteria that create leaky gut syndrome and many other conditions.
Here's a fabulous video that explains all of it.
Watch it and try not to cry. Just be glad you saw it now, not five years from now.
Please vote YES on Proposition 37 to label Genetically Modified Food
so that we can avoid it in the future.
Great article!! As a mother of a 6 year old girl and a 5 month old boy, I can totally relate!!
I personally think the most important thing we can do for our children is love them unconditionally and tell them that ALL OF THE TIME! Listen to their silly stories, play with them, and read to them. This time FLIES and it's up to us to make those happy memories!
Congrats Leilani!! I can't wait to meet the little lady!!
Congratulations. The best thing we can do for our children is to buy the highest quality food that we can. That means high quality organic.
The most dangerous thing anyone can do is to feed their children
genetically modified food. All manner of novel proteins, never before encountered by the human body, created starting in the Mid 90's when GMO food was "approved" and started being sold, are in this witch's brew of pesticide producing plants, meat fed on them and in the herbicide that they are genetically modified to survive in. There are too many other unknown contaminants that have never been tested on humans, yet are in way over half of the processed food that is sold.
Our kids are not lab rats for corporate profits. The wave of weird allergies, autism, colic, auto-immune diseases and premature aging that some women are experiencing is connected to GMOs. Babies have not formed a blood brain barrier and are especially vulnerable.
Vote to label GMOs. YES on 37.
Learn about it here:
Kamala Harris hasn't done squat. Her "Bill of Rights" is basically lifted whole cloth from New York State Attorney General Schneiderman's bill.
She is desperate to join the Obama Administration which as everyone knows is in bed with the banks and Wall Street. She is a phony Democrat in Name only and will whatever it takes to keep her name in the press and pretend like she's doing something real. Look at the details of her bill and then decide if it's effective.
What's needed is a serious Occupy-type movement to take back the foreclosed houses and maintain them in better shape than could the foreclosing banks.
Also, hedge fund bloc purchased properties should be squatted by locals in a clean, organized and socially useful manner. This has to be an organized and viable movement, not degenerate into a bunch of homeless trashing these places and creating photo ops for the financial powers that be.
Glad that you are censoring people's thoughts and their choices of websites in this "alternative media journal." Nothing like an ad-hominem attack on a person and his business to show your fairness and tolerance.
Keri Brenner's favorite boogeyman is her problem. Don't lower your paper to the level of some Stalinist witch hunt.
This journal has the promise of becoming a fine local newspaper that people turn to for news and information. Don't let it turn into a blaring mouthpiece for some trust-fund witch hunter like her. You owe the Hungarian guy and his business an apology and maybe a free ad to make up for attacking him.
i never see brian anymore
great article...Loved it!
Hi Sara - the mine you ask about was originally included in the article, but we removed it from the online version at the request of the current landowner.
California should impose stringent measures to ensure that facilities likeurgent care carlsbad ca can preserve its practice despite of all the non-certified in-home healthcare professionals that are dominating the state.
