Glyphosate can cure cancer? Yes, some research ‘shows’ that – but what does it mean? And what does it say about Roundup doomsday claims?
Now that three juries have said Bayer’s weed killer Roundup (glyphosate) causes cancer, many people believe there is clear evidence that the herbicide is dangerous. Organic industry-funded advocacy group U.S. Right to Know (USRTK) certainly wants consumers to believe that.
The thing to keep in mind about President Trump, as he thrashes around like a weak swimmer in a strong current, is that he has no idea what he’s doing. None. Not a clue. I know that he can be clever politically, in a tactical sense.
Most people have probably seen the recent news that Monsanto has been ordered to pay $289 million following the ruling by a California jury that Monsanto’s glyphosate (a.k.a. Roundup) is dangerous and likely contributed to Dewayne Johnson’s cancer. I could write many lengthy posts about why that ruling is wrong.
A very interesting and scary part of our history that is never really discussed or looked at. To the best of my recollection, I never learned of this during my high school American history classes and the first time I heard of it was on The History Channel (which is not always a reliable source) years ago.
The BBC’s Report on the 1934 Business Coup Plotting
The History Channel’s program on the Business Plot To Overthrow FDR
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was subject to the kind of vitriol we often see directed at Barack Obama today. But some of FDR’s opponents didn’t stop at talk: a new book details a starting plot to overthrow FDR and replace him with a fascist military government.
The Business Plot was an alleged political conspiracy in 1933 in the United States. Retired Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler claimed that wealthy businessmen were plotting to create a fascist veterans’ organization with Butler as its leader and use it in a coup d’état to overthrow President Franklin D.
I’m back from the land of heather and thistles, not to mention wee drams and lukewarm ale, but on my way out a friend at the BBC alerted me to this, a not-to-miss program on the BBC this morning, accessible over the next several days by internet.
Though we know today that his policies eventually ended the Great Depression, FDR’s election was seen as disastrous by some. A group of wealthy bankers decided to take things into their own hands; they plotted a coup against FDR, hoping to install a fascist dictator in its stead.
Its faith-based 12-step program dominates treatment in the United States. But researchers have debunked central tenets of AA doctrine and found dozens of other treatments more effective. J.G. is a lawyer in his early 30s. He’s a fast talker and has the lean, sinewy build of a distance runner.
Recent criticism of Joe Biden for praising Dick Cheney as ” a decent man” and Mike Pence as ” a decent guy ” merely scratches the surface of what’s wrong with the current frontrunner for the Democratic presidential nomination.
The most impressive thing about the ubiquitous comment-section incantation “We’re a republic, not a democracy” is its versatility. Those six simple words fill the very different needs of several key demographics in the ascendant right. For glib elitist types who openly believe in their own superiority, it is a straightforward endorsement of paternalistic, Burkean, “your interests, not your will” representation.
Only in America is the word freighted with so much perceived menace. By David Bentley Hart Dr. Hart is a scholar of religion and a cultural critic.
There has been a fair amount of rhetoric about the job growth and lower unemployment rate seen since President Trump took office. Candidate Trump touted that there would be 25 million jobs created over 10 years if he was elected.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a fan of a geeky economic theory called MMT: Here’s a plain-English guide to what it is and why it’s interesting
Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) should be “a larger part of the conversation” in an interview with Insider in January. MMT is a big departure from conventional economic theory. It proposes governments that control their own currency can spend freely, as they can always create more money to pay off debts in their own currency.
