Red White & True

Our pending 4th of July celebration has me feeling grateful for our nation. America’s Amexit had many sacrificing much more than a brief dip in the stock market.
Hundreds of thousands have died since, in defending or representing America in war and ensuring that our freedom stays in place.
It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you.--Author unknown
For me coming up, 4th of July meant trips to the lake or pool along with picnics including watermelon wedges and spitting seeds.Fireworks and fire ants always in vast supply and part of the annual experience. Lighted punks initiated the send off of hundreds of bottle rockets and the tiny explosions of thousands of firecrackers. Roman candles today are my favorite as are the larger mortars that others buy to shoot off.

America with her imperfections is still the most amazing country to live in, and it has its fair share of incredible people. People of all races and colors have a better chance and opportunity to succeed today in America than anywhere else on our planet. Land of the free and home of the brave.

No matter how you spend the 4th of July enjoy yourself and our amazing country! Unless you live elsewhere, then enjoy that place too and visit us soon, unless you mean us harm, then kindly stay away and just send us a note filled with your thoughts instead.

Feel free to share and Be Well!
-Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.- -Abraham Lincoln

Got Hemp?

The first drafts of America’s Declaration of Independence and Constitution were written upon it, Henry Ford built a car from it that was fueled by it, and Washington and Jefferson both grew it. Cultivated for over 10,000 years it was the very first American crop to exceed $1 billion dollars. It made over 25,000 different products including paper, plastics, textiles, paints, oils, food, rope, etc. I am speaking today of hemp, as it is one of our planet’s most amazing plants & this is national hemp week!
HEMP Industrialized hemp is not cannabis (marijuana), and no amount of smoking industrialized hemp can get you high. Prior to 1900, almost all medicines were cannabis-based as it contains proven healing properties. Legalization of many forms of cannabis has spread across the US. Today’s pharmaceuticals are reported to kill an average of one person every 19 minutes. There has never been a single case of death due to cannabis or hemp, except for the times hemp rope was used in hangings.

Government and corporate criminals stole hemp from the American people back in 1937 when they lumped it together with cannabis. Twenty years earlier the government had announced a program to focus on hemp cultivation rather than deforestation. However, folks with tree pulp processing patents, petroleum interests as well as massive tree-filled landowner/paper producers stood to lose a fortune from further embracing hemp. Corporations like Hearst and DuPont profited massively as a result of the Government making all-natural solutions illegal (see product list above) and allowing the patents of countless petrochemical based solutions (rayon, nylon, pharmaceuticals, etc.).

A single acre of hemp produces the same amount of fiber as four acres of trees. A hemp crop can be grown three times in a single year while trees take 10 to 15 years to mature. Hemp requires no pesticides, half the water it takes to grow cotton, and will grow in all fifty states. We have been importing it from Canada, and we look forward to buying it locally sooner rather than later. Hemp is now being grown in America once again as the people regain the right to make the most of a natural and effective resource. The time has come for such a blatant misuse of government power and corporate corruption to cease so that all people will benefit.

All parts of the hemp plant are used: the seed in shell is normally toasted; the center of the seeds or the hearts can be bought whole or in a powder form as protein and as an oil; the fibers of the plant can be made into paper, plastics, textiles, paints, oils, etc. The seeds contain all the essential amino and fatty acids that support optimal health. The seeds contain vitamins and minerals, Omega 3 & 6 Acids, in a perfect ratio of 1:3 to benefit our bodies and minds. Hemp also contains both Super Omegas Stearidonic Acid and Gamma Linolenic Acid, which allows the body easy conversion of all of its Omega 3 & 6 goodness.

If you investigate the facts further, you too will wonder how such a blatant series of lies have been told for so long to the American people. Based on results, hemp will make its way back as will cannabis, to be considered a norm in American society. I look forward to passing organic hemp fields growing as far as the eye can see. Knowing that it will create fuel, food, housing, and clothing. I go into further detail in my book. You can purchase hemp foods at healthful grocery stores or on Amazon. Please share with those for whom you care. Till next week, Be Well!
