Tell the board members of MACA (virtually all of them big chemical executives) that we don't appreciate their telling Michelle Obama (or any of us) to use pesticides in our gardens.
The Mid America CropLife Association (MACA) represents chemical companies that produce pesticides, and they are angry that — wait for it — Michelle Obama isn't using chemicals in her organic garden at the White House.
We are not making this up.
In an email they forwarded to their supporters, a MACA spokesman wrote, "While a garden is a great idea, the thought of it being organic made [us] shudder." MACA went on to publish a letter it had sent to the First Lady asking her to consider using chemicals — or what they call "crop protection products" — in her garden.
Michelle Obama has done America a great service by publicizing the importance of nutritious food for kids (she's growing the garden in partnership with a local elementary school class) as well as locally grown produce as an important, environmentally sustainable food source.
MACA's letter is part of a larger propaganda effort to convince people that chemicals are a necessary part of produce growth — when we know that's not true.
Thank you for working to build a more organic world.

The Humantics Foundation has kept the message of the dangers of breast implants before the public for 16 years now ... providing free information & support on this highly charged, controversial topic. We have maintained a network of support for women harmed by breast implants via email lists and groups and continue to provide telephone and email support on a daily basis.
We speak out too, on vaccination danger awareness, and the cover-up of Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, from which many, many in our support groups suffer.
By doing so, the entire time, we have been the target of industry backed legal and smear campaigns attempting to silence our voice and bankrupt us. It's been very challenging, to put it gently, and we're still here, thanks to God's grace and the generosity of friends and supporters.
Today more than ever ... the breast implant industry and their very connected public relations teams have a lot of power to keep their corporate backed message before the public.

Some of you may have heard of Barrett Vs Rosenthal.
After 7 long, expensive years of litigation, I recently prevailed in a California Supreme Court Decision which protects web posters from being sued for reposting the words of another.
I quote from The Matrix: "Fate, it seems, is not without a touch of Irony."
While suing me for libel (& losing) ... the plaintiffs and their public relations connections have waged massive smear campaigns of monumental proportions against me and the other defendants.
