Hillary Clinton Calls on TechWomen and Green Girls for Global Change

Friday night, I waited at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis, surrounded by Bomb Squad vehicles and black bulletproof SUVS, for Hillary Clinton to speak to an audience of 1,400, only her third appearance in the United States since she took office as Secretary of State in early 2009. Upon entering the room, she grinned widely and received a standing ovation, welcomed with open arms by the loyal crowd. After a brief introduction, she cut straight to the point.

If You Control The Food Supply, You Control The World

 I have blogged about the documentary called "Food Inc." you may purchase it on Amazon for around $10.  Please buy it and share the information with your friends.  It is shocking information and I could not believe what I was hearing.  It also goes hand in hand with the book "Seeds Of Deception".  Now I am asking you to watch another documentary called "The World According To Monsanto".    Monsanto on a global level, Purdue and Tyson in the US are well on their way to controlling our food supplies.  They dictate how our food is gro...more
