Selling your Business??--Cheap isn't always a Bargain!

What is it about most of us who decide that “cheap” is better? We do it when buying clothes, shoes, furniture, car, etc, only to find out, in most instances, that our decision was not a good one.

How the Media Fails us - How they got the ACORN Story Wrong, and WHY.

The American FREE Press Up for Sale? and why the media is failing the American Public

Main stream media all over the country is failing us. For years we've depended on the media to tell us the truth. This used to mean that a story would have at least 3 independent sources, facts would be checked and both sides of an issue would be covered. This would give us a REAL "fair and balanced" view of a story, allowing us to think…

Milk, Cancer and the FDA

Why is American Milk Banned in Europe?

American dairy milk is genetically-modified unless it’s labeled “NO rBGH.”

Genetically-engineered bovine growth hormone (rBGH) in milk increases cancer risks.

Now for the good news! The light at… Continue
