The Organic Lie

organics

While perusing the local markets here in Hilo, I started thinking about Hawai’i County Bill 113.  The people who are for this terrible law claim that farmers should use organic methods for growing food.  Of course, most of those people are not farmers, they might have a garden where they grow a few tomatoes; but they are not farmers.

The organic movement is a sham, a farce, it is a flat out lie.  It is a scheme to charge people more money for less quality.  It’s a lot like Obamacare, where you pay more for health care insurance and then get denied medical care because it’s too costly.  Making food more expensive by calling it organic is just a cruel way of ripping off people, especially poor people.

Besides the local farmers markets, we also have four large grocery chains on Hawai’i Island: Safeway, Food Land, KTA and Malama Markets.  All the stores have an organic section in their produce section.  The organic sections are basically ignored by the shopping public.  The picture above is the organic section in the Safeway store in Hilo.

Here we have organic Yams at $2.49 per pound.  This is one single variety of Yams.

2013-11-29 14.32.10

Contrast that with non-organic Yams and Sweet Potatoes at $0.99 per pound. That’s two and a half times cheaper!

The non-organics are plentiful, larger, cheaper and in a taste test – no different!  The organic yams are two and a half times more expensive.  It’s no wonder why the organic sit on the shelves and rots.  Fruit flies buzz around the organic produce that is noticeably bruised  and over ripe.  Unattractive and too expensive to have any value, either economically or nutritiously.

What Bill 113 does is to take choice away from both the consumer and the farmer.  It is an unnecessary law that was crafted by ignorant anti-corporate, anti-people, liberal loons.  It’s pure socialism disguised as progressivism.  It has nothing to do with science, technology, economic development; it has everything to do with big overreaching government.  It plays on the ignorance of people’s fears with false science.

In fact, there has never been a single credible scientific study showing GMOs to have harmful effects on humans, animals or our environment. But scientific consensus hasn’t stopped activists from demanding mandatory labeling on all genetically modified foods. Yet there already exists an effective and uniform way for consumers around the country to identify non-GMO products: the presence of a USDA-certified organic label.

However, you cannot change the mindset of the ignorant.  They do not want to listen to facts.  They only attack what they do not want to understand.  It’s isn’t so much about GMO’s, as it is more about the effort to damage American companies by communists extremists.   Who cares if low income people and the poor can’t afford to buy the food they need to feed their families!  Who cares if farmers cannot make money growing crops of their choice, and using the technology of  their choice!  Idiots dance with joy that their freedom are being chipped away!

It’s all about equality with these people.  Equal suffering for all and liberty for none!  So the next time you are in a grocery store purchasing produce and you’re wonder why the cost of living in Hawai’i is so high?  Thank a Liberal!

Hilo Honey Festival

2013-11-23 14.24.06

The fourth annual Hawai’i honey festival took place in Hilo at the Nani Mau Gardens resort area.  Honey makers and bee keepers demonstrated their products.  It was a resounding success! The following is a pictorial blog post of the event, here’s a link to the flyer here!

With over 100 different honey varieties to sample, it was hard to pick a sweet winner!

DSC06655

Every honey variety had a label. There were dark honeys and light honeys.  Subtle flavors with bold sweetness.

Vendors booths were set up selling honey and bee keeping knowledge.

The rules are simple.

Besides all the delicious honey was plenty of food and drink made with honey based recipes.

Great food and great music.  Master Slack Key guitarist Cyril Pahinui dazzled the audience and inspired impromptu Hula dancing.

So many different colors of honey. From very light to very dark. Each with floral smells and tastes.

The organizers of this event really have to be congratulated.  There was a great turn out of people.  It was nice to see the Nani Mau Gardens reopening again after a long absents.  The place is a little known jewel in the Pana’ewa Hawaiian homelands section of Hilo.

We would have never been aware of the event if it weren’t for Cyril Pahinui’s Facebook post advertising the event.  Let’s hope for more events like this at the Nani Mau Gardens.

Then And Now

ThenAndNow

Remember when Obama proudly claimed he liked the name “Obamacare“?  Gosh how things have changed!

It seems that cannot get away from either the name “Affordable Care and Patient Care Act” or “Obamacare“, because neither is affordable nor is it patient care.

In order to deflect attention away from the disaster that is “Obamacare”, the Senate today lit the Nuclear Option and did away with the filibuster option.  Essentially eliminating a 200 year Senate rule.  It discriminates against the minority.  The way the socialist democrats did it was deceptive and reasoned with lies.

What a difference eight years and a Senate majority makes. Back in 2005, Senate Democrats (including Barack Obama) were in the minority – and dead-set against a Republican plan to allow judicial nominations to proceed to an up-or-down vote based on a simple majority. The so-called nuclear option, warned Obama and others, would have the Founders spinning in their graves and usher in a tyranny of the majority in the world’s greatest deliberative body.

This action by the socialist democrats is just another in a long line of bad policies being shoved down the people’s throat.  They’ve taken the voice of the minority away from millions of people.  But this is a distraction away from the disaster that is Obamacare.  Remember that Obama said it as much, and just like the Bloomberg reasoning that a 32oz soda is bad for you, the government will make your decisions as to what’s healthy, or not.  From Obama’s own words:

They’re going to have to give up paying for things that don’t make them healthier.  And I — speaking as an American, I think that’s the kind of change you want.

Why would we want to pay for things that don’t work, that aren’t making us healthier?  And here’s what I’m confident about:  If doctors and patients have the best information about what works and what doesn’t, then they’re going to want to pay for what works.  If there’s a blue pill and a red pill and the blue pill is half the price of the red pill and works just as well, why not pay half price for the thing that’s going to make you well?

Already, the individual mandate  has forced the cancellation of  over 5 million individual healthcare policies.  If each policy was insuring a family of 4, then we are looking at over 20 million people that are now going to be uninsured.  Some of those people losing their insurance will have preexisting conditions.  Some people receiving cancer treatments may find themselves in insurance limbo.  Putting them at risk of bankruptcy because they have no insurance for the treatments they need.

Obama waived  the employer mandate for a year.  They knew the employer mandate would force insurance companies to cancel over 100 million employer based health insurance policies.  Assuming that each policy could have both spouse and dependents insured, we could be looking at well over 400 million people uninsured in this country.

Obama claims that you can shop for a new plan, with a better deal; however, what people are learning is the affordable care act is not so affordable.  There’s basic economics behind that.  Obamacare is designed as a huge wealth redistribution system where the rich will pay the most for insurance.   Not only that, but the law also burdens young people with higher insurance premiums.  The law assumes they will be healthier and their higher insurance rates will help pay for the elderly and the sick.

It’s the slice of the pie argument that Michelle Obama spoke about:

“The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more.”

This is what we in the Tea Party has been talking about for over 5 years.  We saw this coming by their very words.  It’s the classic story of robbing Peter to pay Paul.  This is the Robinhood mentality where you take from others, to give to others.

Of course this was tried in the Soviet Union and it failed miserably.   This government doesn’t want to you make your own pies, they want to the only pie maker.  Where ever socialism has been tried, it has always ended badly.

It is all a lie.  The President of the United States of America, lied!  Lied to the American people and Obama is only sorry that he got caught in his lie.  He thought he could “bamboozle” his way through his lie.  Even the doting lapdog media lied for Obama, until it became obvious to the media that they are not immunized from the disease of this fascist regime.

You get the government you voted for.
