Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) sent a letter to the Attorney General, demanding an investigation into the reports of brutal and abusive tactics used against DAPL protestors by police.
As government intervention to date has done little to stymie the conflict surrounding the controversial Dakota Access pipeline, a Senator from New Jersey is calling for an investigation into “all credible reports of inappropriate police tactics” that have been used against pipeline protestors in North Dakota. Senator Cory Booker sent a letter to US Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who heads the US Department of Justice, demanding they conduct a civil rights investigation into allegations of violence against both law enforcement as well as the protestors, who are chiefly composed of Native Americans. He also urged Lynch to send federal monitors to the site “to ensure that protestors can peacefully assemble and exercise their First Amendment rights.” Continue reading After Months Of Police Brutality, US Senator Finally Calls For Investigation Of DAPL Oppression

“We don’t see things as they are, we see them as we are.”
“Having a positive mental attitude is asking how something can be done rather than saying it can’t be done.”
“It’s better to be an optimist who is sometimes wrong than a pessimist who is always right.”
It starts with just a thought or a feeling. Or maybe with a sentence spoken by someone else.
And then it starts to drag you down.
Into feeling sorry for yourself, worried or into thinking “what’s the point of taking any action at all?” as you walk around in a funk with your own personal rain cloud above your head. Continue reading 12 Powerful Tips That Stop Negative Thoughts from Dragging You Down

Even if your world seems to crumble around you, know that it’s meant to shake the foundation of the old, in relation to an earthquake. All you feel you can do initially, is run from the intuitive “fallout” that is coming, and then brace yourself as the impact hits. Even as it hits, you are guided. You are loved. You are embraced in this amazing force field of Divine protection.
Get up afterwards and look at the rubble around you. How ever significant, big or small, it happened for you. Notice all of those belief systems, societal programming, and expectations placed upon you day after day that kept you in such a “holding place.” This was your presumed “safe place” but was also your prison. You were held captive here for so long. Just like those who don’t know or understand any better, they will see their restrictions as comfort. Most will not realize the difference, until the epiphany arrives and brings the much needed clarity to their daily madness. Continue reading There’s Nothing You Can’t Overcome

Studies show that cannabinoids found in the marijuana plant actually protect your lungs, and relieve the constriction and discomfort of asthma.
It is estimated that one out of twelve people suffer from asthma, a chronic respiratory disease that typically becomes present during childhood. While many people experience minimal symptoms with treatment, asthma is still linked to over 3,000 deaths per year.
Naturally, many asthmatics choose to stay away from smoking cannabis for fear of exacerbating their symptoms. But contrary to popular belief, studies have shown cannabis has little to no long-term impact on the lungs. In fact, recent research is actually showing cannabis is helpful rather than harmful for asthma patients. Continue reading How Cannabis Treats Asthma

California just legalized seed sharing!
A recent study found that states across the US are making it very difficult or even illegal – punishable by hefty fines or even jail time – for people to practice the time-honored tradition of sharing seeds. With recent trade deals looming that would have criminalized farmers around the world for sharing and saving seed, and the EU’s threat to ban all heirloom seed, while criminalizing any seed grown that isn’t registered with the government, California’s latest move to amend a law that allows seed sharing at public libraries is a huge success for bio-diversity.
