Chicago - A Film from the Chicago Board Of Education

Although I watched film, ahem, video, on my iPad it made me long for a simpler time. It appears this was produced circa 1940's when there was only 48 states. I can't help but get angry at our legislators for the economic situation in the State of Illinois. There was so much commerce & now very little manufacturing is produced in Chicago, let alone in the U.S.! The school system is in a mess, there are few jobs, and those that have, or are attending some of our colleges can't find a job when they graduate; not to mention their student debt. Yeah, that's progress . What's happening to our beautiful City, State, and the wonderful U. S. Of A. Oh yeah, we have to support the military from those friggin idiots that want to destroy democracy. Ok, I'm stepping down from my soapbox now. By the way, I still love our Country and beautiful Chicago! This is a film I found at an estate sale on the south side of Chicago. It merely said "Chicago" and "Print 1" on the canister. I bought it because I was intrigued…

[12/08/13]   Clinton Ray Miller; March 14, 1921 - July 24, 2013

The Father of Health Freedom, lived his life as a health freedom. activist. Clinton Ray was the pioneer of all pioneers, working to protect health freedom for all Americans. His conviction that “Health Freedom is second only to Religious Freedom” was the foundation of his life’s work.

In his own 2003 words, Clinton, the eternal story-teller, describes his entry into the politics of health freedom: “My life as a health freedom activist started about 50 years ago in Salt Lake City, Utah. I started one of the first health bakeries in the United States. I called it Clinton’s Wheat Shop. My motto was “The Whiter the Bread, the Sooner You’re Dead”. It was printed in bold letters on the back of my truck and on the label of every loaf of bread we sold. We made 100% whole wheat “HEALTH BREAD”. We ground the wheat fresh every day on stone burr mills. It was made without any preservatives”

Clinton began his public freedom work when a Utah health food store asked him if he would debate fluoridation with the Head of the Utah State Dental Health Division. He became a well-spoken and ardent anti-fluoridationist with 8 years of success in Utah.

In 1961 Clinton was invited to represent National Health Federation in Washington DC and moved his family there and became their star lobbyist. Leaders attribute the successful passage of the Proxmire bill after a 17 year battle to Clinton Miller. The bill protected Vitamins from drug dosage regulations and prohibited the FDA from setting upper limits of dosages for Vitamins in the United States. Clinton went on to work tirelessly with people from across the country to help pass the 1994 Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act, establishing that all dietary supplements are to be regulated as nutrients and foods and not drugs. In that effort he became famous for his “Clinton One Page Faxes”. Millions of faxes shut down legislative offices with Clinton’s encouragement and he considered them the torpedo weapon of the health freedom movement.

In 2000, Clinton turned his attention to state health freedom efforts becoming a vibrant Board Member of national Health Freedom Action, and working for Sunshine Health Freedom Foundation immersing himself into the state politics of safe harbor legislation to protect natural health and traditional practitioners from getting prosecuted for practicing medicine without a license. He has been a guiding force in seven states obtaining safe harbor laws. In addition he supported Dr. Wendell Whitman’s vision to launch the Health Freedom EXPOs and was a regular speaker and teacher to thousands of Americans about a broad range of health freedom concerns.

Americans are indebted to Clinton Ray Miller for his tireless work protecting health freedoms. Leaders have promised him that Americans will continue his work in the spirit of freedom and honor. Clinton Miller always reminded leaders that each person, every leader, every legislator, every Congressman, is a good person, and is educable, and claimed that in the situation of debate and conflict “the good guys always win”!

Thank you Clinton Ray Miller for your enthusiastic leadership and your freedom accomplishments for all Americans.

It’s Monsanto’s worst nightmare come true. One by one, states are passing GMO labeling laws, despite Monsanto’s best efforts – and deep pockets – to prevent them. Will the Biotech Bully follow through on its threats to sue? We say: Bring it on!

Next it’s on to Washington State, where voters will cast their ballots on Nov. 5, to decide on I-522, a citizens’ ballot initiative to require mandatory GMO labeling there.
