AND OTHER UPCOMING FEB NEWS FOR T-TOWN
Temecula, CA – With the month of Love now here, being the shortest month of the year [the reason the government made it black history month], we look at what’s coming up as the month starts. But short or not, there is a lot of activity packed into the month of February. As I mentioned in The Enemies List, the knowledge gained from my Prop 37 campaign adventure has changed my lifelong eating and drinking habits. No more refined sugar as I replaced that staple with honey, organic honey. Now I’m replacing store-bought (boughten for my Iowa readers) with local honey made by Kathie Z, part of The Human Solution and their Old Town Temecula new outlet.
Kathie Z, a cannabis advocate who says she would die without availability to cannabis in its various forms (weed, capsules, wax, edibles, etc) is one of the amazing people involved with the grass-roots coalition and she raises the bees that make the honey. No, you won’t cop a buzz from this honey, but you might if you ever travel with Kathie Z. The Human Solution is set to open their merchant business in Old Town February 1st, so look for their fine skin care products under their brand name also.
Slated for some time in September '13, the new all-girl roller derby squad from Temecula will debut. Known as the Temecula Valley Roller Girls and a member of Roller Derby Association, the team is just starting up as girls around the valley are pumping those legs and spinning their wheels practice skating. Details just in are public skating trials/practices held in Margarita Park by Temecula Elementary School at Moraga (7-9PM Tues/Thur; 7-9AM Sat). So as The Dude used to say, “Roll out with your hole out, ladies” [The Dude, far left, big smile].
February 2nd the Move To Amend folks are rallying in downtown LA at the city hall to protest against Citizens United, the Bush loaded Supreme Court decision that made corporations people in the fruition of a plan started in 1886.
The week of February 4th to the 10th finds Howard Vlieger, the Iowa Farmer battling Monsanto/GMOs, back in town Barnstorming OC. Volunteer Kathleen Halat has been battling the system as she tries to get understanding and proper care to her children that suffer from auto immune disorders. She is joined by Zen Hunneycut., also a Mom. Together they have set a schedule of public and private PTA school meetings to bring action to our communities. To kick off Howard's presentations Kathleen will explain her story. Zen will explain a national plan of action for Moms to march in parades across America July 4th.
You do not want to miss Howard's powerful presentation on GMO's and Glysophate. Understand this one thing: "Glysophate's toxicity makes DDT appear like mouthwash". It is being sprayed not only on GMO crops as a weed killer but is also being used as a "burn down" to control weeds before planting and as a "burn down" to ripen some conventional crops. Yes, that's right. Some conventional crops are actually sprayed to kill the crops in a short season so they will ripen sooner.
Howard's Schedule is: Monday, February 4, 6:00 p.m. Libreria Martinez de Chapman University (English and Spanish) 216 N. Broadway, Santa Ana, CA 92701
Tuesday, February 5, 6:30 p.m. Mother’s Market, 1890 Newport Blvd. Costa Mesa, CA 92627

Feb. 10 Global day of action: GMO Salmon Rally. The FDA is ready to approve the first untested for human consumption GMO animal. There will be more GMO animals coming along the way. Trout and tilapia will soon be unlabeled on your dinner plate. Our life is becoming more complex as we can see that from the court case of the Farmers of Brazil's court case against Monsanto. Monsanto charged the farmers of Brazil a 3 BILLION DOLLARS ROYALTY FEE on their gene monopoly. So, what will happen when this GM fish escapes and mates? Who owns the fish?
And now on to some good news. Roll out with your bowl out.
