   Bettijo posted on Health & Diet  What Are GMOs, and Should I be Worried About Them?

GMO is an acronym for genetically modified organism. GMOs are crops or animals whose DNA has been artificially altered in order to improve one or more traits. They could not have evolved or mutated naturally to achieve this change. In many case, foreign DNA is injected into the organism. Today, the majority of corn and soy in the US are GMO, after their DNA was altered to withstand certain pests and certain herbicides.

While this scientific feat is quite amazing, GMOs pose several challenges:

GMOs have not clearly been proven safe for humans over the long term.
Use of GMOs has not necessarily decreased the use of pesticides or herbicides. In some cases, their use and toxicity has increased.
GMOs are patented and pose ethical issues pertaining to corporate control of the global food supply.

Awareness of the existence of GMOs has grown in the past few years, with many consumer groups calling for clear labeling of food products containing genetically modified ingredients. According to Consumer Reports, over 70% of Americans would like to know if their food contains GMOs. What seems to be a basic consumer right - to know what is in your food - has so far been ignored. Legislation attempts in several states have failed, mostly due to heavy campaigning by food companies and the biotech industry.

Bottom Line
Whether GMOs are safe or not is still a hotly debated matter. What should not be debated is consumers' right to know what's in their food.

Supermarket Tip
Use your Fooducate app to find GMOs in your food. Go to the app settings screen, and in the GOAL tab, make sure to turn WARN ME ABOUT GMOs to ON.

I have the Fooducate app on my iphone. You scan in the bar code from the food product and Fooducate will tell you a lot about the product, if it contains gluten or other things (you select what you want to be warned about ). You can get this app from iTunes. It is $3.99. There is a free version, but it does not give you all this information. bj

   Bettijo posted on Jokes  A man and a woman were having a quiet, romantic dinner in a fine restaurant. They were gazing lovingly at each other and holding hands.
The waitress, taking another order at a table a few steps away, suddenly noticed the woman slowly sliding down her chair and under the table but the man
stared straight ahead. The waitress watched as the woman slid all the way down her chair and out of sight under the table. Still, the man stared straight ahead.
The waitress, thinking this behaviour a bit risqué, and worried that it might offend other diners, went over to the table and, tactfully, began by saying to the man,
"Pardon me, sir, but I think your wife just slid under the table."

The man calmly looked up at her and said, "No, she didn't. She just walked in."

Charles Barkley defended cops after the Ferguson rioting, saying black neighborhoods would be the Wild West without them. The protests angered many. At a high school football game in Texas Friday, every time the ref signaled touchdown, the crowd booed him for making an anti-police gesture.

President Obama decided to name Pentagon career official Ashton Carter as Defense Secretary and met with him Friday. He is a theoretical physicist. The president wants to know how he can theoretically put a hundred thousand troops back in Iraq without letting their boots touch the ground.

U.S. News and World Report reported that United States national debt reached eighteen trillion dollars Friday. However, none of the three major broadcast TV networks mentioned the milestone in their evening newscasts. The United States hasn't been attacked by this many zeros since Pearl Harbor.

The White House refused to deny reports Friday that President Obama is going to slap sanctions on Israel over settlements on the West Bank. His combativeness toward Israel is reflexive. Obama never got over his boyhood horror in Indonesia when he learned that the Jews killed six million Nazis.

Hillary Clinton gave a foreign policy address Thursday and recommended the U.S. deploy smart power around the world and learn to empathize with our enemies. She lectured the Palestinians and Israelis how to live together side-by-side even though they hate each other. No one's better qualified.

President Obama commented on BET about the angry black protests Sunday by saying America is rooted in racism. The media just loves to fuel the fire. George Zimmerman's wife divorced him last year saying that he has become two different people, a Hispanic at home and a white guy on the news.

George W. Bush stood by the CIA Sunday when CBS News asked him about the Senate revealing U.S. torture against terrorists when he was president. It's gotten worse since. President Obama just sent six terrorists from Guantanamo to Uruguay, giving old German Nazis a chance to rehabilitate them.

President Obama asked Congress for and obtained a ninety-day extension Monday for the NSA to monitor phone calls in the U.S. for terrorist activity. The NSA Director assured Congress that the NSA does not use the information on political opponents. That's the IRS's job and they're a different union.

Prince William arrived at the White House Monday to discuss with President Obama ways to halt the illegal trade in wildlife in Africa. The timing had to be just right. In order to get any help, William had to give President Obama time to cool off after he got trampled by elephants a month ago.

Prince William flew from New York to Washington D.C. Monday for a visit with President Obama at the White House about his wildlife foundation. The two chatted in the Oval Office for two hours. It was a meeting between a symbolic ruler with no real power anymore

   Bettijo posted on Main Page The Lobby  "Remarkably, the Washington Post published an article by Philip Bump on "Why Matt Drudge and Lucianne Goldberg still rule the conservative media roost." For those who really want the truth on current and historical facts, the and should be bookmarked on your computer. They are without peer for providing the truth from national and international verifiable news sources. The Drudgereport merely provides news links that are later utilized by most major news networks. is more in the format of an information salon where registered readers (known as ldotters ) can comment on the articles posted from around the world. The site is rigorously monitored by the Lcom taste police which will delete tasteless or obscene remarks deemed unsuitable as posted."

   Bettijo posted on Health & Diet  Flu shots are the greatest medical fraud in history, and even the CDC now admits they don't work.

Did you know they still contain mercury? Even more astonishingly, did you know flu vaccine inserts openly admit there's no evidence the shot works?

See my interview about "flu shot failures" filmed today with Next News Network at:

   Hollyhock  Betijo, I've never had a flu shot.

I remember reading that the flu shot that seniors get isn't just a regular but a super shot. I wonder if that is true.

My Dad's father died in the influenza pandemic in 1918. Why did he die but the rest of the family survive? Grandma must have had some powerful immunity genes to pass on to her family.

   BirdsNest  One flu shot in my life, I got the flu. Never again. We use elderberry tonic to ward off colds and flu. Works for us. My grandmother always said "Flu shots are a way for the federal government to kill off old people so they don't have to pay Social Security". My grandmother was ahead of her time!

On another note Hagar is on day 3 of a 28 day regimen of IV antibiotic. Here's hoping it helps.

   Bettijo posted on Jokes  The Barber

A guy stuck his head into a barbershop and asked, 'How long before I can get a haircut?

The barber looked around the shop full of customers of and said, 'About 2 hours.'

The guy left

A few days later, the same guy stuck his head in the door and asked, 'How long before I can get A haircut?'

The barber looked around at the shop and said, 'About 3 hours.'

The guy left.

A week later, the same guy stuck his head in the shop and asked, 'How long before I can get a haircut?'

The barber looked around the shop and said, 'About an hour and a half' .

The guy left.

The barber turned to his friend and said, 'Hey, Bob, do me a favor, follow that guy and see where he goes’.

‘He keeps asking how long he has to wait for a haircut, but he never comes back'

A little while later, Bob returned to the shop,laughing hysterically.

The barber asked, 'So, where does he go when he leaves?'

Bob looked up, wiped the tears from his eyes and said ....

'Your house'
