Freedom lovers. Head for Russia.



Hi Tap,

Just received this email from naturalnews.com less than a half hour
ago concerning Proposition 37.

A victory against GMO is within our reach! Proposition 37 is currently
polling 2-to-1 in favor of passing!
This “GMO labeling” law would not only require food companies to label
GMOs on their products, it would also disallow the use of the word
“natural” on products that contain GMOs!
Passage of this law would initiate sweeping changes across the food
industry, and it would drastically reduce farming of GMOs.
But your help is still needed because Monsanto, DuPont and other
companies are spending tens of millions of dollars to try to defeat
this bill. That’s why I donated $1,000 yesterday to the YES on Prop 37
campaign, and Natural News will be making another (larger) donation in
October.

Here’s how you can help make sure this law passes:

Did you know that Russia is a model of small-scale organic
agriculture? It turns out that Russia honors food freedom and
encourages citizens to own land for gardening and growing food! Wow,
how did Russia become a freer country than America when it comes to
growing your own food?

The backyard gardening model is so effective throughout Russia that total output represents more than 50 percent of the nation’s entire agricultural output. Based on 2004 figures, the collective value of all the backyard produce grown in Russia is $14 billion, or 2.3 percent of Russia’s gross domestic product (GDP) — and this number only continues to increase as more and more Russians join the eco-village movement.

    Life expectancy for Russian male in 2011 was 64 years and 3 months in 2011.

    UK – 77.9

    EU – 75.7

    US – 75.9

    Quality of life maybe better though! How many old people in the UK are half dead in nursing homes? At least they are improving the statistics by being kept alive.
    Bhutan is to be the first country I the world to convert to 100% organic farming! Things we are not told about in the mainstream media. We are led to believe that everything about these other countries, like Russia and Bhutan, is no good, and we are very very lucky in the UK.
    I have also noticed some European countries are banning GM. The UK shows no sign of doing any of these things.

    • horehound says:

      The UK has a problem which most EU countries do not have, a ever expanding population predicted to hit 70 million in the mid 2020’s.
      Even Germany with it’s (relatively) booming economy is predicting a population fall large enough to be potentially damaging to their economy, so perhaps its the case that most of the rest of the EU can afford to be less concerned about trying to squeeze more produce from less land.
      The Russian economy is interesting as it has such a low population density / high natural resource wealth, on paper it should have the greatest public services / health service on earth, yet since the average male does not even make the pension age where does the money go?
      And if the male life expectancy ever rose the 10 years + to the western average how would they afford the pensions?

    also totally separate point but posting a comment on this site gets more frustrating all the time, now 4 – 5 attempts

  4. Tapestry says:

    sorry about the frustrations to all. are we getting the full treatment now?

  5. Tapestry says:

    The Russian health service is run by USAID, the depopulation service, which explains the falling rates of fertility in Russia, and maybe the life expectancy statistics too. My friend who lives in Moscow (Russian) says the corruption has got far worse in the last two years and he’s giving up his business. He wants to move to London.

  6. Toad Hall says:

    There is masses of Russian money pouring into London at the moment, mostly going into Residential real estate. This is not new, but it increased significantly since the credit crunch.

    As most of you probably know, London real estate is seen as an asset class in its own right. And its widely viewed as a safe heaven. So billionaires from all over the world have been ploughing their money over in droves for the past few years. This has added towards record prices being achieved, some of the higest prices in the world. leasehold flats being sold for over £6k per square foot.

    Quite a high percentage of this money is Russian and a higher percentage still of that Russian money is involved in energy.

    It’s criminal really, after the break up of the USSR a handful of ex KGB people managed to get their mits on the crown jewels then exit the country.

    Some of those people will not go back to Russia because Putin will arrest them and try to cease their assets. That is another reason they all buy property in London because its actually pretty hard for overseas governments to take residential property back without major help from the UK goverment.

    Made worse because they purchase in offshore companies or trusts, which makes it almost impossible.

    I’ve often wondered who funded them, my guess would be some well known bankers. I wonder if like JP morgan when some of these Oligarchs die, we find out they only actually own 20% of their wealth…
