Of course summer and produce is paradise for vegee's on a budget. Organics are safer Vis a vis pesticides-herbicides-fungicides-insecticides. Unfortunately, organics 'high test', cost considerably more than 'regular' produce. In terms of
Healthy Peoplerinsing your produce well, with water, before putting in the fridge, is the minimal [ the food still contains the 'cides' in their fibers -think essence- but you do the best you can ], in terms of sanitation, therefore health. Pass on produce with white stains on the 'skin'. Don't know what these stains [ fertilizer -Nitrogen, phosphorus-potassium- combined with 'cides'. While in the U.S.M.C., learned a white phosphorus gernade would melt a cast iron automotive engine block ] are. Don't buy either. I've been a Vegetarian since the seventy second year of the twentieth century. Do vegetarians live longer, than Flesh Eaters ? Don't Know. Do vegetarians have less diseases than Flesh Eaters ? Generally... Yes and there-by less pain. Are there Fat Vegetarians ? Yes there are, but.. Vegee's or Flesh Eaters who do 'regular' exercises, and get a decent amount of rest [ think sleep ] tend to be much leaner and feel much better.
Nuyorican in as Supreme Court justice
No one person, judge or nominee will speak in a female or people of color voice. I need not remind you that Justice Clarence Thomas represents a part but not the whole of African-American thought on many subjects. Yet, because I accept the proposition that, as Judge Resnik describes it, "to judge is an exercise of power" and because as, another former law school classmate, Professor Martha Minnow of Harvard Law School, states "there is no objective stance but only a series of perspectives - no neutrality, no escape from choice in judging," I further accept that our experiences as women and people of color affect our decisions. The aspiration to impartiality is just that--it's an aspiration because it denies the fact that we are by our experiences making different choices than others. Not all women or people of color, in all or some circumstances or indeed in any particular case or circumstance but enough people of color in enough cases, will make a difference in the process of judging.
Whether born from experience or inherent physiological or cultural differences, a possibility I abhor less or discount less than my colleague Judge Cedarbaum, our gender and national origins may and will make a difference in our judging. Justice O'Connor has often been cited as saying that a wise old man and wise old woman will reach the same conclusion in deciding cases. I am not so sure Justice O'Connor is the author of that line since Professor Resnik attributes that line to Supreme Court Justice Coyle. I am also not so sure that I agree with the statement. First, as Professor Martha Minnow has noted, there can never be a universal definition of wise. Second, I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life

Reflections of FidelThe history of Haiti and its tragedy is far more complex. Haiti was the second country of this hemisphere after the United States -which proclaimed its sovereignty in 1776- that conquered its independence in 1804. In the case of the US, the white descendants from the settlers who founded the Thirteen British Colonies, who were fervent, austere and cultured religious believers and owned land and slaves, shook off the British colonial yoke and enjoyed their national independence. But this was not the case for the autochthonous population, the African slaves or their descendants, who were denied every right, regardless of the principles enshrined in the Declaration of Philadelphia.
In Haiti, where more than 400 000 slaves worked for 30 000 white owners, the men and women submitted to that heinous system, for the first time in the history of humankind, were able to abolish slavery, maintain an independent State and defend it by struggling against soldiers who had brought the European monarchies to their knees.
That period coincided with the boom of capitalism and the emergence of powerful colonial empires that managed to dominate the lands and the seas of the planet for centuries.

Immediately after throwing Dr. Gates in jail, sgt. crow-ley, A known liar,
[ The officer who arrested Gates, sgt. james crow-ley, said in his police report that he talked to Whalen soon after he arrived at Gates' home. "She went on to tell me that she observed what appeared to be two black males with backpacks on the porch," crow-ley wrote in his report.
Whalen's attorney, Wendy Murphy, said her client never mentioned the men's race to Crowley and is upset by news reports she believes have unfairly depicted her as a racist.
The arresting officer, sgt. james crow-ley, has said his information on the race of the suspects came during a brief encounter with Whalen outside Gates' house.
Whalen contradicted that Wednesday, saying she made no such description and that the only words he uttered were for her to stay where she was. ]
proselytized to being behind President Obama "up to a point",then, a bit later, just before the above face to face, the sgt. ascended his support to a claimed 110 per cent. What's up with that ? Well, With respect to the sgt., Absolutely Nothing. Why ? When sgt. crow-ley goes back to cambridge, Mass. his 'Brother' police benevolent association member from the Boston P.D., one justin barrett, [ cut barrett loose ] will meet and greet Crowley with expressions of kindness, imbibe iced tea / chablis [ so sayeth ann coulter ] and set-up a cover plan for the
White cops, for instance, have gunned down a black officer four times over the past 15 years; the reverse has never happened even once, ever. Additionally, cops have gunned down dozens of completely innocent, law abiding blacks to say nothing of the hundreds of thousands stopped and frisked under profiling policies tolerated by the mayor and his police commissioner.

Dear Friends,If you’re like most Americans, there’s nothing more important to you about health care than peace of mind. Given the status quo, that’s understandable. The current system often denies insurance due to pre-existing conditions, charges steep out-of-pocket fees – and sometimes isn’t there at all if you become seriously ill. It’s time to fix our unsustainable insurance system and create a new foundation for health care security. That means guaranteeing your health care security and stability with eight basic consumer protections:

"Clearly, while tickets indeed can reduce accident rates, they can also increase insurers' profits by raising drivers' premiums. That's one reason insurer Geico , for example, several years ago used to donate radar units to police departments. But a Geico spokeswoman says she believes the company has discontinued that practice, which came under heavy criticism."
No, I'm not writing about Car Insurance. I was however, wondering: ( (who/why ) on earth, ( is/are they ) against, Health Coverage ?
Who ? The nation's largest Fortune 500 publicly traded health benefits companies.
Why ? Profits ! Accrued from one out of six dollars circulated via national economic activities dealing with unhealthy people in unhealthy ways.
There are the acronymic HMOs, PPOs, POS plans, HDHP/SOs and other conventional plans, which offer single and/or family coverage. With out of pocket spending maximums roaming from zero to over Six K, depending on office-visits Vs hospital stays, and/or the ratio of union workers compared to lower wage employees.

As you read this, we are closer than ever to passing comprehensive health insurance reform that benefits American families and small businesses. Despite all the back and forth in the news right now, it is important to understand just how far we've come in this challenging process.
That's why I held a press conference tonight at 8pm ET, and wrote to let everyone know where we are, what's ahead, and why health insurance reform is so important.
Let me be clear: although Congress is still debating parts of the legislation, we have achieved critical consensus on several key areas:
If you already have health insurance: reform will provide you with more security and stability. It will limit your own out of pocket costs and prevent your insurance company from dropping your coverage if you get too sick. You'll also have affordable insurance options if you lose or change your job. And it will cover preventive care like check-ups and mammograms that save lives and money.
If you don't have health insurance: you will finally have guaranteed access to quality, affordable health care, and you can choose the plan that best suits your family's needs. And No Insurance Company Will be allowed to Deny you Coverage because Of a Pre-existing medical Condition.
Now, I realize that the last few miles of any race are the hardest to run, but we can't stop now. There's no dispute about it: we cannot control our long-term fiscal health as a nation without health insurance reform. American families and small businesses understand that the health insurance status quo is taking away those things that they value most about health care. The stability and security that comes with knowing that you can get the treatment you need, when you need it. Without reform, we are consigning our children to a future of skyrocketing premiums and crushing deficits.
We have to seize this opportunity and pass health insurance reform this year. You can help by forwarding this email to your family and friends and letting them know what's at stake in this debate.
Live video chat through Facebook and WhiteHouse.gov today ( 7-23-09 ) at 3pm.Eastern Time, on Health Ins. Reform
