Payback Time: Boycott the Brands that Helped Kill Prop 37
They stomped on our right to know. Now it’s time to get even.
Prop 37, the California Right to Know GMO labeling initiative, was narrowly defeated last week thanks to a relentless, deceitful $46-million advertising blitz. Among the largest bankrollers of the NO on 37 campaign were huge multinational food and beverage companies whose subsidiaries make billions selling some of your favorite organic and “natural” brands.
Brands like Kashi. Honest Tea. Naked Juice. Muir Glen and Morningstar Farms.
It’s time to boycott the companies whose dirty money confused and scared millions of California voters into voting No on Prop 37. It’s time to plaster their facebook pages with this message: We won’t support you until you support us. It’s time to call their consumer hotlines, complain to their store managers. It’s time to tarnish their holy organic and natural images, to expose their hypocrisy and greed.
It’s time to raise a little hell.
The OCA is calling on all consumers to boycott these 10 organic and natural traitor brands:
• PepsiCo (Donated $2.5M): Naked Juice, Tostito’s Organic, Tropicana Organic • Kraft (Donated $2M): Boca Burgers and Back to Nature • Safeway (Member of Grocery Manufacturers Association, which donated $2M):”O” Organics • Coca-Cola (Donated $1.7M): Honest Tea, Odwalla • General Mills (Donated $1.2M): Muir Glen, Cascadian Farm, Larabar • Con-Agra (Donated $1.2M): Orville Redenbacher’s Organic, Hunt’s Organic, Lightlife, Alexia • Kellogg’s (Donated $791k): Kashi, Bear Naked, Morningstar Farms, Gardenburger • Smuckers (Donated $555k): R.W. Knudsen, Santa Cruz Organic • Unilever (Donated $467k): Ben & Jerry’s • Dean Foods (Donated $254k): Horizon, Silk, White Wave Tell these companies that if they want your loyalty – and your grocery dollars - they must do two things:
1. Speak out publicly in favor of the pending GMO Labeling Ballot Initiative (I-522) in Washington State in 2013, as well as the pending GMO labeling bills coming up in Vermont and other states.
2. Contribute as much or more money to the Yes on I-522 Campaign in Washington than their parent corporations spent to defeat Prop 37.
Prop 37 was narrowly defeated, by dirty money and dirty tricks. But it spawned a huge, national consumer movement that is fired up and more determined than ever to fight this battle until we win the right to know if our food has been genetically modified. We’re already collecting signatures in Washington State, talking to legislators in Vermont and Connecticut. A 30-state coalition is formulating a plan to collaborate on GMO-labeling laws and initiatives.
You are a part of this movement, and today we’re calling on you, on the millions of consumers who were outraged by the NO on 37′s dirty campaign, to send a clear message to the traitor brands who helped kill Prop 37, in the only language they understand: lost profits and lower sales.

Organic fruits and vegetables usually cost more than those that are conventionally grown and handled. At current levels of production, economies of scale are difficult to achieve and most people simply cannot afford to buy all organic food. Here is some important information, taken from Natural News, that will help in making the right food choices when you shop.
The dirty dozen
The EWG (environmental working group) cleverly calls the 12 fruits and vegetables listed below the “dirty dozen” due to their high levels of pesticides, when compared to other produce. If possible, purchase the following organic produce.
8. Sweet bell peppers
12. Kale/collard greens
The clean 15
This next group of 15 produce are known by the EWG as the “clean 15″. They are the lowest in toxic pesticides, so if you’re going to buy non-organic produce, these would be the ones to buy.
2. Sweet corn
6. Sweet peas
13. Sweet potatoes
Consuming foods from the clean 15 will lower your pesticide exposure a whopping 92% when compared with the dirty dozen. By choosing five fruits and vegetables a day from the clean 15 list you’ll consume fewer than two pesticides per day, whereas consuming five fruits and vegetables a day from the dirty dozen will cause you to ingest as many as 14 different pesticides every day.

A few days ago, I received a message from long-time correspondent, Ralph Haulk, in which he related some personal healing experiences that are rather astonishing. Mind over matter? Here it is below; you can decide for yourself.-t.h.g.
As a result of injury in the marines, I had knee surgery on my left knee, and as I got older, it began to get weaker, stiff, and I couldn’t support my weight. Just after I got out of the marines, I was working on a roof when the roof collapsed and fell through, injuring my right knee.
As a result, by the time I turned 60, both knees had begun to grow bone spurs that caused pain, and my right knee had a spur that grew through the knee(as shown on an x-ray), and it looked nearly big as my thumb. It was pulling my knee inward, throwing strain on my hips and getting my back out of alignment, so I had to be careful how I walked, or bent over, or even sudden movements in my sleep.
I couldn’t sleep well, because the strain on my hip would build up if I turned at certain angles. I went to the VA, and they said nicely “Get in line. We got more severe problems to worry about”.
So, because I had nothing better to do, I started doing what I did for the growth on my skull. I began rubbing my knees and imagining the bone spurs dissolving into my bloodstream, with the calcium going to more useful places. I imagined my hip coming back into alignment as my right leg straightened out.
Until that time, the misalignment of my hip and knees was so bad I had to walk in a modified sideways crab-step, pulling myself forward with my right leg, and bracing with my left , making “Chester” on the old “Gunsmoke” show look graceful by comparison.
I have begin to study and think about the way our minds work, and how we focus and adjust to trauma, rather than guiding our minds toward healing. Many ideas are resulting from this that may be useful in personal therapy. I’m looking for courses in that area that perhaps may qualify me to help others in this discovery. Any ideas?
This investigative report raises considerable doubt. Much of what Whole Foods markets sell is imported from China. It may be labeled “organic,” but there is no reliable assurance that it really is. You decide, but be sure to read the labels on each package. At least we can still count on labeling to be correct. Or can we??
This short video graphically shows improvements in human health and wealth over the past 200 years. But it leaves some lingering questions: Does longevity equate to health? Is higher money income a causal factor?
This, from a credible authority, came to me via Richard K. Moore:
I am sending you here some of our relevant recent publications on the subject of vaccines. I am also attaching here an expert witness report which I wrote recently on behalf of a mother who is getting sued by her husband for not wanting to vaccinate their 4 year old son. Their family has a history of severe reactions to vaccinations including death and seizures. I think you will find it useful. It is fully referenced and I am happy to provide you with full text copies of any of the cited documents. (note that the report is the point-to-point rebuttal to the pro-vaccine expert’s comments, I redacted all the official parts of the report in this pdf as well as the names for the sake of confidentiality). Zip folder has the docs which were provided to the judge along with the report
Briefly, this was the conclusion of my report:
Following facts are indisputable and yet ignored by all those who advocate vaccines.
1) Many infectious diseases have been eradicated long before vaccines were introduced due to better sanitation, nutrition and vast improvements in medical care.
2) Mass vaccination practices have resulted in emergence of both vaccine- and antibiotic- resistant strains of infectious organisms which have been shown to cause the same (if not greater) threat to children than those strains covered by the vaccines
3) Evidence of vaccine safety is very scant.
4) Most vaccine clinical trials only include healthy individuals, thus the true risks of vaccine adverse reactions in general populations remains unknown. Most notably, individuals with so-called false contraindications to vaccination (i.e., premature birth, family or personal history of seizures, family history of any adverse reactions following vaccination, stable neurological conditions, etc.) are precisely those who are universally excluded from vaccine trials. Hence the risk of vaccination in such individuals remains to this date undetermined.
5) Vaccine safety appears to be established on untested assumptions rather than scientific evidence.
