Johnny Cook was a bus driver who stood up to try and fix an issue when he was approached by a middle school student who was .40 short on his pay card to get to eat lunch and was denied. He was terminated for not removing a post on his Facebook Page which at the time did not mention any names or which school. Here is his story…
16 Fun Food Facts
I know its not health related but… it’s my blog deal with it :P

For those that want to see just how closely tied together politics and business really are.
Doesn’t this seem like a conflict of interest to you?
We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter:
‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.
I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?”
My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.”
Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks
‘Do you have a suspended coffee ?’
It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.

Farm Bill gives Monsanto unbelievable powers over US food supply
December 30, 2012
While you are distracted by the horror show of the Fiscal Cliff, Congress is trying to slip by another agricultural disaster -The Farm Bill. The greatest benefit of this bill goes to the Monsanto corporation -you know the chemical bio-ag company that has been charged with piracy in India, banned in South America and Europe and who have proven to be a criminal enterprise.
The large seed manipulator Monsanto spent $7 million on this bill alone to grant itself unheard of power and authority over GMO seed in the US food supply.
Monsanto has always had the intention of complete domination of the food supply over governments, over people and all over the globe.
That is a monopoly by a mega corporation on the very food that keeps humanity alive. They want power and they want it now.
GMO seed contains pesticides -right in the seed germ, and has caused major agricultural damage in many country’s around the world, so much damage that many countries have banned Monsanto from growing any seed on their land. In India, cotton farmers lost everything to Monsanto who promised higher yields, but when crops failed over 100,000 farmers committed suicide over their losses.
While the media is concentrating on just one aspect of the Farm Bill, which is the rise in milk prices, they are ignoring the very dangerous parts.
Who Wrote This Bill and Who Benefits
The Chairman of the Farm Bill is none other than Frank D. Lucas of Oklahoma who received large cash donations to his election campaign.
”The power of Monsanto can be seen through its contributions to Rep. Frank D. Lucas, who’s received the most money so far from Monsanto. Lucas just happens to be chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, through which every farm-related piece of legislation must pass. But he’s certainly not the only one wheel getting greased by this biotech giant,” said Dr. Mercola.
Booby Trapped Farm Bill Gives Monsanto Unprecedented Powers
This bill is booby trapped with unheard of powers given to Monsanto the Genetically Modified Seed company, which deregulates their product.
a) The bill disregards any study on pesticide seeds made by Monsanto and accelerates their products to the marketplace.
b) Unrestricted GMO growing which will invade organic farms completely.
c) Monsanto will own the master seeds to the US food supply giving the corporation a complete monopoly and power over government officials.
d) The Farm Bill states that Environmental Laws do not apply to their products even though GMO plants contain pesticides in the seed germ, and require much more pesticide applied, that run off into the water table will be allowed.
e) The bill gives the US Dept of Agriculture a Nazi like power and authority on GMO crops over any group or agency. In essence this gives the USDA more power and authority.
f) Deadlines on approvals are enforced and make it impossible to study any new Monsanto products or GMO seeds, if the USDA cannot approve the GMO product it will AUTOMATICALLY BE APPROVED.
Whomever wrote this bill was a big-ag corporate puppet for Monsanto and the deep cuts to Food Stamp recipients will leaving people starving in the street hitting the poor with a massive and deadly attack on the very poor.
Passing this bill takes the authority out of the hands of the USDA and gives it to a very powerful and dangerous Corporation that is entirely built around selling pesticides. Like Dow Chemicals, Monsanto is attempting to insert pesticides into plant seeds claiming they need less pesticide spraying which is a lie. Studies have found GMO plants need “more” not less pesticide spray and Monsanto profits soar because they also own patents on Round Up.
The deregulating of Monsanto GMO seed means that no organic farmer can file a lawsuit against Monsanto ever again.
The deregulation of Monsanto GMO means the corporation will control the US food supply completely and totally.
The Farm Bill Deregulation of Monsanto and GMO plants means Americans will be swallowing more pesticides than every before making them sicker and more subjected to diseases.

These are the people we trust to keep our food safe??
America urgently needs change at FDA because FDA is fundamentally broken, failing to fulfil its mission, and because re-establishing a proper and effectively functioning FDA is vital to the health of the nation.
The purpose of this letter is to inform you that the scientific review process for medical devices at FDA has been corrupted and distorted by current FDA managers, thereby placing the American people at risk. Through this letter and your action, we hope that future FDA employees will not experience the same frustration and anxiety that we have experienced for more than a year at the hands of FDA managers because we are committed to public integrity and were willing to speak out. Currently, there is an atmosphere at FDA in which the honest employee fears the dishonest employee, and not the other way around.
This is an excerpt from a letter written by FDA scientists and doctors accusing top FDA officials and attorneys of violating laws, suppressing and altering scientific findings and conclusions, abuse of power and authority, and retaliation against those who have spoken out. The scientists’ and physicians’ names have been withheld for their protection.
The letter also states that the Director of the Office of Device Evaluation (ODE) has:
- Ordered physicians and scientists to ignore FDA Guidance documents.
- Knowingly allowed subordinates to issue written disciplinary actions for failure to change scientific opinions.
- Issued illegal documents that are not publicly available and would circumvent scientific and legal requirements.
- Failed to properly document significant decisions.
- Made and allowed false statements in FDA documents.
- Allowed manufacturers to market unapproved devices.
- Removed Black Box warnings FDA experts recommended.
- Bypassed FDA experts and failed to properly label devices.
- Excluded FDA experts from meetings when manufacturers didn’t want them there.
Three specific device approvals referenced were:
- Interference by former FDA chief Andrew von Eschenbach in approval of a knee device.
- A computer-aided mammography device’s approval over the unanimous vote against it by all FDA experts after a phone call from Congressman Christopher Shays.
- Daniel Schultz’s approval of a device to prevent scar tissue in spite of the scientists’ unanimous opinion against it..
