The goal of this project is to educate children about the useful qualities of the noxious weeds, to relieve hunger, experience new incredible flavors and bring people closer to Nature. Harvesting them for our own good would be a wonderful way to control the weeds instead of pouring hundreds of gallons of pesticides, poisoning our land and drinking water.

research about the traditional use of the invasive plants in their courtiers of origins, to discover range of medicinal and culinary properties they possess. Plants win competition with others and spread widely in the new territory because they possess many powerful qualities that make them stronger than many other species. Not accidentally they were used to treat deadly diseases for centuries in traditional medicine of many cultures. They were brought to U.S. by settlers for their useful qualities, their beauty and few – accidentally. Purpose: re-learn what our ancestors knew about these plants, – they are the nature’s great resource.

why we’re doing it

We know this work is for the good of environment and people. We focus mainly on the invasive weeds in Ferguson MO. We currently teach about the useful invasive weeds at afterschool programs with parental permission, but would like to have enough educational materials to reach many more children and adults in local communities via schools and community centers.

USDA to invest $20 million to help 15 states increase recreational public access on private farm, ranch, and forest lands

Agriculture Secretary Vilsack announces $150 million, new partnership to support water quality and quantity in drought-stricken California

NRCS Awards Missouri Department of Conservation One of 15 Grants In addition to Missouri, NRCS awarded grants for projects in Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Kansas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oregon, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming. Nationally, NRCS is providing $20 million to projects in the 15 states.

Volunteers Needed!

This project’s leader is looking for volunteers to help out:

We need people who are passionate about the environment and plants to learn about our project and help in distribution of the flyers and education of public.

The first step in the development of appropriate management policies is to put in place a system where the interests of all the stakeholders can be adequately and properly addressed. Plants have been meeting the basic needs of food, cloth and shelter ever since the emergence of Homo sapiens. Plants are also the source of human health care products. Plants have been used as medicines since beginning of human civilization.

WHO is violent, the Slaver or the Slave?

The gang may pool its resources, its own resources, to pay off the debt for that individual. The individual who incurred the debt may have to work it off for the other gang. If he owes a debt to another gang, he may have to assault one of their enemies, maybe a guard who they don’t like or another inmate, and work off that debt. Or it may be, what’s unfortunately somewhat common in California, that when an individual gang can’t pay a debt back, his own gang will assault him to the satisfaction of the rival gang leader. To the satisfaction that he’s been assaulted to the extent that the message has been sent. So, in a lot of these different ways, some from just apologies, to assaults, these gangs are regulating their own members to make life a little bit easier when interacting with other people. Russ: And the gangs are racially divided–that’s one way they are divided. Correct? Guest: They are overwhelmingly racially divided. And the inmates themselves refer to not just the gang actors but the race actors. Right? Everything is segregated along racial lines. And the groups themselves are segregated at least along racial lines. Sometimes geographic factors matter. So, in California, for example, Hispanic inmates will affiliate with one or another prison group based on whether they are from Northern or from Southern California. Russ: This group, community responsibility is a fascinating example of dealing with a free-rider problem. It reminds me of a story that I am told that when Walter Williams teaches at George Mason U., he tells students that if your cell phone goes off, the people on both sides of you will get a reduction in their grade, lose a certain number of points. When I tell that to people they always say, ‘Well, that’s so unfair.’ Yes, it is. What it means is that people on both sides, around you, people are going to tell each other, to ask, ‘Is your cellphone off?’ And in the ideal system, the phone never goes off. There’s never anything unfair because the punishment deters people from misbehavior and free riding on the group’s identity, and degrading the group’s brand name. And so that’s just incredible. The prison, when you have violence as opposed to losing 5 points on your homework score, it’s pretty effective. For Written Audio

Phytochemicals are chemical compounds that occur naturally in plants (phyto means “plant” in Greek).

It has been estimated that only 20-30% of the world’s flora of approximately 250,000-500,000 species has been subjected to phytochemical investigations (Principle, 1990; Simmonds and Grayer, 1999; Cordell, 2000; Plotkin, 2001). Of an estimated 75,000 edible plant species known in the world, only 2500 species have ever been eaten with regularity and a mere 150 species have been exploited commercially and only 20 feed the world population. About 9,500 wild plant species used by indigenous people for meeting their various requirements have been documented. Out of 7,500 wild plant species used by indigenous people for medicinal purposes, about 950 species have been found to be useful in health care for the first time; out of about 3,900 plant species used as edibles about 800 have been found as novel food yielding species and 250 species among them have potential to develop as alternative sources of food; out of 525 wild plant species used for making fibre and cordage, about 50 species have potential for commercial exploitation; out of 400 wild plant species used as fodder, about 100 species have potential for wider use; and out of 300 wild plant species used as pesticides and piscicides, about 175 have potential for the development of bio-pesticides (Pushpangadan, 1984; Mishra, 1985; Saklani and Jain, 1996; Saini, 1996; Prakash and Singh, 2000; Nautiyal et al., 2000-2001; Satyavati, 2001; Sarin, 2003).FireWeed-More-Projibited-Getto-Food-

you can describe almost all of Southern California as being a sage scrub zone, but anyone who has traveled around here can tell you there is a big difference between Santa Barbara and San Diego, or between Los Angeles and San Bernardino.

Sagebrush (Artemisia sp.) is widely used by Mexican curandero/as (healers) for strengthening the immune system, reducing inflammation, and treating skin infections and irritations (much like European Artemisia). Mimulus is one of the Bach flower remedies. It is used to treat fearfulness, when there is a known source of fear. The FES brand of North American flower remedies has two monkeyflower essences, pink and red, both of which help to promote emotional courage and honesty.

As a resident of South Carolina (U.S.), I watched this vine take over roadways in days with high heat and humidity.  A food source beyond compare as it was imported to control erosion, and has now taken over the east coast from the mid Atlantic to Florida.  This stuff is everywhere and will overgrow everything.  Free food folks.

USDA-kudzu-map

The flowers, leaves, and roots are all edible.  Young leaves are the most easy to chew as the larger the leaf the more course in texture.  If large leaves are used, cut out the heaviest part of the center vein.  Crispy fried leaves are a nice treat similar to chips.

The leaves, stem tips, roots and blooms can be eaten raw, steamed or boiled. Kudzu looks very similar to poison ivy – be sure you know how to distinguish between the two plants!! Kudzu also produces beautiful, purple-colored, grape-smelling blossoms that make delicious jelly, candy, and syrup. Some people have even used these to make homemade

wine. Survival at Home – Read more at: http://survivalathome.com/10-wild-plants-you-can-eat/

The strong stems are superior for making rope or cordage by stripping the leaves and steaming and pulling out the fibres.

Agroforestry Uses:

The plant can be used as a ground cover in a sunny position It can also be used to make a quick, temporary screen.Plants are very fast-growing and have an extensive root system which can be 1.8 metres deep. They are used for erosion control and for rebuilding depleted soils. A member of the Fabaceae, the plant also adds nitrogen to the soil through the actions of root bacteria

Many “licorice” products manufactured in the U.S. actually don’t contain any licorice. Instead, they contain anise oil, which has the characteristic smell and taste of “black licorice.”Licorice is also used in an herbal form called Shakuyaku-kanzo-to to increase fertility in women with a hormonal disorder called polycystic ovary syndrome. In combination with other herbs, licorice is also used to treat prostate cancer and the skin disorder known as eczema.

How does it work?

The chemicals contained in licorice are thought to decrease swelling, thin mucus secretions, decrease cough, and increase the chemicals in our body that heal ulcers.A perennial for zones 7-10. The source of most commercial licorice used in the making of candy, liquor, and as a sweetner for herb tea. Extracts flavour tobacco, beer, soft drinks and pharmaceutical products. Powerful anti-inflammatory properties effective for arthritis, gastritis, canker sores. Also a mild laxative. 3 year old roots are harvested in the autumn.

The Three Sisters

By 1100 AD, Native Americans had shifted towards a maize-based agricultural system, meaning that corn was the major staple food for the indigenous populations, including those in Louisiana. The Native Americans of this region were very adept farmers, and are most famous for their “Three Sisters” – squash, maize, and beans, which also dominated the agricultural economy at this time. These three crops were grown together, with the pole beans using the stalk of the corn for support, and the squash protecting the soil from weed invaders.

Morel Mushrooms

Morchella esculenta

Morchella esculenta, (commonly known as common morel, morel, yellow morel, true morel, morel mushroom, and sponge morel)

Morel Mushrooms, also known as sponge, pinecone, and honeycomb mushrooms, are the most popular wild mushroom in Missouri and the United States. They range in color from tan to pale gray to yellow and the surface is covered with pits and ridges. They vary in size, but can grow to be 12 inches tall. Many nature lovers hunt for this fine fungus in mid April and early May. Keep a close eye on the lilac bushes – when they bloom, it is time to look for mushrooms. They grow in moist woodlands and river bottoms when the weather has been consistently warm and rainy. They are considered a delicacy and are sold commercially for a huge price. They are delicious fried, stewed, baked, creamed, or stuffed. Medicinal uses. Native Americans used the bark in infusion for treating colds, coughs, and dysentery. Tea

Stuffed Morels

Ingredients

1 doz. medium size morels
1can flaked crabmeat
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup salad oil
2 tbl mayonaise
2 tbl chopped sweet onions
2 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup of seasoned bread crumbs
2 tbl melted butter or margarine

Directions

In a bowl, combine crabmeat, egg, salad oil, mayonaise, onions, lemon juice, and 1/4 of bread crumbs. Wash morels thouroughly but gently under running water. Fill morel “shells” with mixture. Combine remaining 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs with melted butter and sprinkle over mixture. Place the stuffed Morels in a pan. Bake in the oven for approximately 15 minutes at 375 degrees fahrenheit. Serve Hot.

Warning!

Though morels are edible and delicious, there are many wild mushrooms that are not safe for humans to eat. Never try tasting a wild plant unless you are absolutely sure it is not poisonous or harmful to the body.

Cultural uses: Purple coneflower has a long history of medicinal use. Native Americans used it as an antidote for snake bit and other venomous bites and stings. It was also used in a smoke treatment for headaches. Purple coneflower was used to calm toothaches and sore gums, and tea form it was drunk to treat colds, mumps, arthritis, and a blood purifier (often a euphemism for the treatment of venereal diseases). Further, it was used as a treatment for pain, indigestion, tumors, malaria and hemorrhoids. After a long period of disregard, purple coneflower has come back into vogue in recent years. It is used primarily as an immune-system booster and it has been used as a treatment for skin diseases such as eczema and psoriasis, boils and wounds, burns, cold sores and genital herpes. It is also recommended for use to treat bronchitis, tonsillitis, meningitis, tuberculosis, abscesses, whooping cough, arthritis and ear infections.:

SF085 Fireweed ( Epilobium Angustifolium )
A versatile perennial that offers beauty as well as value as a medicinal herb. The perennial has slender upright spikes of flowers in shades of rosy pink in the months of June to September. It gets its name from the fact that it is often the first weed to colonize in an area that has been destroyed by fire.
Other common names include: Willow Herb, Rosebay Willowherb, and Yanagiran. Native Americans used the Willowherb plant as a good source of vitamin C and pro-vitamin A. Medicinally, the herb seeds can also be grown to relieve inflammation, draw out infection in wounds, and to treat burns.
Fireweed is very attractive to bees and butterflies, and Fireweed honey has become quite sought after. Fireweed seeds do best with a cold/moist treatment for 4 weeks prior to planting, or directly sow the herb seeds outdoors in the fall.

Native plants are plants endemic (indigenous) to a given area in geologic time. This includes plants that have developed, occur naturally, or existed for many years in an area (e.g. trees, flowers, grasses, and other plants).

Some native plants have adapted to very limited, unusual environments or very harsh climates or exceptional soil conditions. Although some types of plants for these reasons exist only within a very limited range (endemism), others can live in diverse areas or by adaptation to different surroundings. Research has found that insects depend on native plants.[1]

An alternative, but potentially conflicting, usage is to describe plants (and animals) that are indigenous to a geographical area, even if they are known to have self-introduced in historical times, e.g. the Silvereye (Zosterops lateralis) of New Zealand, which was first recorded in the 19th century.

Honey – a natural product, which is created by nature itself. Daily use of this valuable product helps to strengthen the immune system, improve the condition of the body.
However, there are many kinds of honey, each of which has its own healing properties. You can always choose your version of honey, which will be suitable for you. True, especially you can pay attention to fireweed honey among the delicious honeys.

How to get fireweed honey?

Fireweed has long been used in folk medicine to combat a variety of diseases. So, it helps with problems with the upper respiratory tract and has antibacterial and antiviral properties. Of course, the bees do not know it, but they still can not get around this valuable plant.
It is a great honey plant. It attracts bees from a distance, beckoning them by its excellent flavor. Bees collect nectar, from which they make excellent, fragrant fireweed honey. Of course, some people do not like fireweed honey because of its specific appearance.

Fireweed honey or fake?

Often medical experts do not consider fireweed honey as a real one. They are trying to convince others that they face a fake, a cheap substitute, which is better not to take. At such times, naively trusting people choose a different type of honey, but the real experts buy fireweed honey.
Fireweed honey is a slightly yellowish or greenish mass that resembles cream by density. It is quickly crystallized, so it can have clots like grains or flakes. During the crystallization the honey gets a lighter shade, that confuse people. They often think that they see artificial honey and start to take offense.
It turns out that people in their quest to buy a quality, real honey often choose a beautiful but useless fake. It has some dyes and other “wonderful” supplements, which provide a nice, uniform mass. True, there is no benefits of such honey, and you can be poisoned, because you can never know what is added to the false honey for the perfect color.
Also, you may have a severe allergic reaction to these products, but fireweed honey rarely causes irritation. Most often, it helps a person to adapt to different foods, increases the body’s resistance to external factors. Of course, such a miracle can make only real fireweed honey that you learn to accurately distinguish from the best fakes.

South African Fynbos shrublands

Fynbos shrublands occur in a small belt across South Africa. The plant species in this ecosystem are highly diverse, yet the majority of these species are obligate seeders, that is, a fire will cause germination of the seeds and the plants will begin a new life-cycle because of it. These plants may have coevolved into obligate seeders as a response to fire and nutrient-poor soils.[18] Because fire is common in this ecosystem and the soil has limited nutrients, it is most efficient for plants to produce many seeds and then die in the next fire. Investing a lot of energy in roots to survive the next fire when those roots will be able to extract little extra benefit from the nutrient-poor soil would be less efficient. It is possible that the rapid generation time that these obligate seeders display has led to more rapid evolution and speciation in this ecosystem, resulting in its highly diverse plant community.[18]

Fireweed is an exceptionally colorful plant, its native from the sub-Arctic down the Rocky Mountains across the upper Midwest and down the Appalachians to Georgia. Many people are inspired to try and grow fireweed after they see it in Alaska. It is sometimes called giant showy willow herb.

X I got my seeds while in Alaska from Seeds of Alaska. The packet for 1995 read:

Fireweed is the most colorful wildflower to be seen in Alaska. It takes over recent clearings, burned areas and along roadsides. It is a tall plant, up to 8 feet, with long terminal spike-like clusters of red blossoms. The tender new shoots from older roots are edible. They are eaten raw, cooked, or in the Eskimo matter, soaked in seal oil. The Eskimo name Pahmeyuktuk, describes the edible shoot. Plant with a thin soil cover and keep moist until the tender young plants are well started. Fireweed seed does not germinate well at high temperatures. Fireweed is a perennial and begins blooming the second season.

Nutritional information and Properties

SEEDS PACK

Poppy Seed Nutrition Facts:

One tablespoon of poppy seeds (approximately 9 grams) has only 45kcal. Poppy seeds are rich in calcium, potassium, phosphorus, and magnesium. They are also a source of protein, carbohydrates, and sodium. Poppy seeds also contain high levels of vitamin B, folic acid, thiamin, and riboflavin.

Health Benefits and Therapeutic Uses

The health benefits of poppy seeds include:

  • To treat vomiting and nausea
  • Adding poppy seeds to your daily diet can cure respiratory problems such as chronic cough and asthma
  • Poppy seed paste can stop diarrhea
  • Poppy seed paste when applied to swollen joints can provide pain relief
  • Apply a mix of poppy seed paste under the eyes to reduce dark circles and swollen eyelids
  • The oleic acid in poppy seeds lower bad cholesterol levels (LDL) and increase good or HDL levels
  • Eating poppy seeds can prevent heart disease and strokes due to the high content of monounsaturated fats
  • The zinc in poppy seeds aids sperm production

Other Uses

  • Apart from the medicinal use and health benefits of poppy seeds, they are also widely used for various culinary purposes. They can be sprinkled on baked goods such as bread and cakes, used as a sandwich spread along with butter and honey, used to add extra crunch to pasta and salads, as a flavoring for sauces and vegetable dishes, and in candies as well. Eastern countries use poppy seeds as a base for curries and chutneys.
  • Poppy seed extract is used as an ingredient in poppy syrup and cordials.
  • Poppy seeds make great bird food.
  • Due to its anodyne and expectorant properties, poppy seeds are used in cough syrups and poultices.
  • Oil made from poppy seed extract is used to make a number of drugs and medications.
  • Poppy seed infusions are used to treat earaches and toothaches

Precautions/Side Effects/ Warnings

Among all seeds and nuts, poppy seeds are the least allergic. They are totally safe for consumption even by children and pregnant women. The narcotic compounds in poppy seeds are not enough to cause any side effects but if you consume food products made with poppy seeds, be warned that there is a possibility that you may receive a false positive result on tests for banned opiates (as those done on sports people).

Whole or ground organic poppy seeds are available at most supermarkets and health food stores. Since they are high in polyunsaturated fats, they tend to go rancid quickly. Buy only good quality seeds and stored in a cool dry place before using. If stored carefully, fresh poppy seeds can be consumed within six months.

California Washington Fires have Solutions: Fire, Drought Resistant Fireweed

Follow fireweed treating depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive–compulsive disorder, alcoholism, drug addiction, cluster headaches, and other ailments.

Fireweed comes into a clear cut or burn and creates an environment that will sustain a strong plant community – not just its own species, but pioneering the process to rebuilding a healthy ecosystem?

Henry David Thoreau mentions seeing great stands of it growing in burned areas in 1857. It’s a beautiful color and its dangling stamens and large white pistil make it very easy to identify. This plant is a favorite of bee keepers and is an important nectar producer for the honey industry throughout Canada and Alaska. The honey is much sought after and commands premium pricesCongress annually writes emergency blank check, which in wildfire exceeds $2.5 billion.

Over the last century we turned trees from green friends we hug into thirst-stressed enemies we compete with for resources. But this ecological blowback didn’t happen by accident, overnight.Water depletion from afforestation is the unintended consequence of our deliberate 20th century federal lands policy. For millennia, fires set by lightning or by Native Americans limited Western forest stocks to roughly a few dozen trees per acre. No longer. The nationally terrifying Big Blowup wildfires of August 1910 led the US to in effect declare war on wildfire.

The result? More new trees compete for less sunlight, thinner soil nutrients and scarcer water resources. Insects and diseases spread faster. Unnatural afforestation creates a deadly tinderbox; fuels accumulate year after year until the inevitable wildfires burn faster, hotter, more destructive and deadlier than ever, consuming the treasure of citizens and the blood of our youth – from Montana’s Mann Gulch (1949) to Colorado’s Storm King Mountain (1994) to Arizona’s Yarnell Hill (2013).

Because today’s hottest and thirstiest parts of America are over-forested due to a vigorous and expensive federal fire-suppression initiative that has silently stocked semiarid regions with what we estimate to be several billion trees too many.

Regular and cooler seven-year fire regimes that pruned back new growth have been blocked for decades on end. Now the relentless metastasizing spread of native, excess trees reduces sap flow, slows down wind-flow, and alters the complex biophysical structure of entire landscape. It crowds out indigenous plant and animal habitat. Shade tolerant species take over; Aspen, lupine, sequoia, and fireweed can’t reproduce.

Less appreciated – both as crisis and opportunity – is how the afforestation caused by a century of fire suppression depletes a natural resource that has today become far more precious than toilet paper: fresh water.

More than half of humanity is urban. Our freshwater shortfall comes from population growth, waste, pollution, rising demand for water-intensive goods – but also parasitic competition from unnatural afforestation. Of the 39 states facing water scarcity, few feel stress more than those West of the 98th Meridian; thirsty ‘cities in the wilderness’ – from Spokane to El Paso, Bozeman to San Diego, Salt Lake City to Tucson – depend on forest lands where rain and snow fall, filter through soil to supply water. Now, as billions of excess conifers drink up tributaries of the Colorado, Columbia, Missouri, and Rio Grande, we’ve turned trees from friends into enemies.

Ecosystems & Biodiversity

Credit markets for water quality treatment are increasingly viewed as an essential tool for addressing watershed-scale nutrient issues such as the notorious Ecosystems & Biodiversity, Mechanisms for Market-based Conservation

Water conservation erodes a private or public utility’s revenues. To remain solvent, or grow, providers are forced to encourage and reward waste.

By James G. Workman (Faculty Member and 2005 Kinship Fellow)

The converse is that through the principles of H2Ownership, we can find a way to unlock the monopoly in order to save both water and the utility.

This is critical to understanding the marine connectivity between our countries. Florida is home to 18 million residents and annually hosts upwards of 90 million tourists. Florida has seen unprecedented overuse of its coastal and reef habitats. The Everglades has been sucked dry and we spend billions of dollars importing sand onto our eroding beaches. We have taken too much out of the system and are relying on importing fish to feed the demand. Biologically, Florida and the US east coast are at the end of the supply chain. These areas rely on pristine habitats upstream more then ever. We depend on healthy Cuban marine habitats more than Cuba depends on ours.

Prohibition is Slavery

“We did $2 million in orders in two months,” Coley recalls. “I think hemp seed will eclipse it.”

According to Coley, Nectar Ales’ annual profits shot up from $1 million to $40 million after the brewery started selling hemp seed beer. “They’ve grown exponentially, so that’s good for us,” Coley says.

Flavored vodkas continue to be enormously popular, and not just with the girly drink set that favors the whipped cream and fluffed marshmallow varieties that Smirnoff launched late last year. Distillers are now toying with ingredients that appeal to earthier drinkers who pride themselves on their purist streaks, such as the fireweed that Alaska Distiller’s Toby Foster fit into a spirit which debuted last summer.

leading weapons supplier – the United States is obligated to address the legacy of conventional weapons proliferation. The Clinton administration itself has explicitly noted the devastating legacy that a plague of weapons has left in Africa. Countries like Angola and Mozambique now report as many anti-personnel landmines buried beneath the earth as people treading it. The proliferation of small arms in Africa has become an internationally recognized crisis undermining global development and breeding a new generation of child soldiers.

We’re asking black folks around the world to help us create this vision together, and we’re collecting audio responses to the following prompt: “In a world where Black Lives Matter, I imagine…” Try to speak in the positive, about what you want to see rather than what you don’t want to see. Help us paint the picture. Be as specific as possible.

“The problem of all the ethnic and tribal wars must be either resolved or at least largely reduced through a big effort by the countries that deal in arms to prevent the over-militarisation of Africa.”- Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund Michel Camdessus Comments to French radio, Jan. 2, 2000

LYNCH LETTER

shave off the brute’s mental history and create a multiplicity of phenomena of illusions, so that each illusion will twirl in its own orbit, something similar to floating balls in a vacuum. This creation of multiplicity of phenomena of illusions entails the principle of crossbreeding the nigger and the horse as we stated above, the purpose of which is to create a diversified division of labor; thereby creating different levels of labor and different values of illusion at each connecting level of labor. The results of which is the severance of the points of original beginnings for each sphere illusion. Since we feel that the subject matter may get more complicated as we proceed in laying down our economic plan concerning the purpose, reason and effect of crossbreeding horses and niggers, we shall lay down the following definition terms for future generations. 

Gold's Gym is facing a backlash from LGBT activists over its CEO's $2 million donation to American Crossroads, the conservative political group affiliated with former Bush adviser Karl Rove, and its four franchises in the San Francisco Bay Area are now leaving the brand over the controversy.

Crossbreeding niggers mean taking so many drops of good white blood and putting them into as many nigger women as possible, varying the drops by the various tone that you want, and then letting them breed with each other until another circle of color appears as you desire. What this means is this: Put the niggers and the horse in a breeding pot, mix some asses and some good white blood and what do you get? You got a multiplicity of colors of ass backward, unusual niggers, running, tied to backward ass long-headed mules, the one productive of itself, the other sterile. (The one constant, the other dying, we keep the nigger constant for we may repla replace the mules for another tool) both mule and nigger tied to each other, neither knowing where the other came from and neither productive for itself, nor without each other

When poor people are taught to get a job, instead of simply do work.the purpose of which is to create a diversified division of labor; thereby creating different levels of labor and different values of illusion at each connecting level of labor.  There is the  unfounded Phenomenon or illusion of job loss through competition.

Nimrod has the tower built in Babil,  Babylon, Iraq , the empire is attacked and destroyed in a moment of weakness, and the language of mankind, formerly Syriac, is then confused into 72 languages

There is a case for challenging borders that were drawn up by European imperialists and which continue to inhibit travel and trade. The notion of uniting 54 countries with their thousands of languages and ethnicities is currently tenable.

IV: CHANGING RHETORIC, CHANGING POLICY

“The time is long past when one could claim ignorance about what was happening in Africa or about what was needed to achieve progress. The time is also past when the responsibility for producing change could be shifted onto others’ shoulders. It is ours and it is theirs – the world’s and Africa’s.” — UN General Secretary Kofi Annan

  • Finding 1 – Due to the continuing legacies of its Cold War policies toward Africa, the U.S. bears some responsibility for the cycles of violence and economic problems plaguing the continent. Throughout the Cold War (1950-1989), the U.S. delivered over $1.5 billion worth of weaponry to Africa. Many of the top U.S. arms clients – Liberia, Somalia, the Sudan, and Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of the Congo or DRC) – have turned out to be the top basket cases of the 1990s in terms of violence, instability, and economic collapse.
  • Finding 2 – The ongoing civil war in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire) is a prime example of the devastating legacy of U.S. arms sales policy on Africa. The U.S. prolonged the rule of Zairian dictator Mobutu Sese Soko by providing more than $300 million in weapons and $100 million in military training. Mobutu used his U.S.-supplied arsenal to repress his own people and plunder his nation’s economy for three decades, until his brutal regime was overthrown by Laurent Kabila’s forces in 1997. When Kabila took power, the Clinton administration quickly offered military support by developing a plan for new training operations with the armed forces.
  • Finding 3 – Although the Clinton administration has been quick to criticize the governments involved in the Congo War, decades of U.S. weapons transfers and continued military training to both sides of the conflict have helped fuel the fighting. The U.S. has helped build the arsenals of eight of the nine governments directly involved in the war that has ravaged the DRC since Kabila’s coup. U.S. military transfers in the form of direct government-to-government weapons deliveries, commercial sales, and International Military Education and Training (IMET) to the states directly involved have totaled more than $125 million since the end of the Cold War.
  • Finding 4 – Despite the failure of U.S. polices in the region, the current administration continues to respond to Africa’s woes by helping to strengthen African militaries. As U.S. weapons deliveries to Africa continue to rise, the Clinton administration is now undertaking a wave of new military training programs in Africa. Between 1991-1998, U.S. weapons and training deliveries to Africa totaled more than $227 million. In 1998 alone, direct weapons transfers and IMET training totaled $20.1 million. And, under the Pentagon’s Joint Combined Exchange Training (JCET) program, U.S. special forces have trained military personnel from at least 34 of Africa’s 53 nations, including troops fighting on both sides of the DRC’s civil war – from Rwanda and Uganda (supporting the rebels) to Zimbabwe and Namibia (supporting the Kabila regime).

Corporatocracy: How the Corporate Welfare State Divides and Conquers

A small, readily-identifiable ruling oligarchy that no serious political observer denies the existence of is able to keep the public from attacking it by dividing them along ideological grounds so that the public spends all their time arguing over definitions and splitting doctrinal hairs instead of attacking the commonly acknowledged enemy. You couldn’t ask for a more perfect system of control.
