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.

Make Cannabis Vodka?

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.

How to use Jamaican Guaco

Jamaican Guaco is used to make a Jamaican-style bush tea that is then used to treat various ailments. The leaves of the herb are boiled for a few minutes, sweetened with honey or with sugar if it is preferred, then sipped to bring relief from the likes of diarrhea. The fresh Guaco leaves may also be applied to areas of the skin in an effort to ease any itch or as a remedy to being bitten by certain insects.The juice from the leaves of the Jamaican Guaco bush may also be squeezed onto the desired area of the skin and used like a therapeutic oil.The sweet aroma and healing properties of the leaves also make Jamaican Guaco a favorite for adding to the water when taking a bath.

Health Benefits of Jamaican Guaco

The bush tea made from Jamaican Guaco is used as a remedy for treating diarrhea as well as to reduce fevers, suppress coughs and also as a natural blood thinner. Jamaican Guaco is also used to cleanse the blood, improve digestion, combat asthma along with promoting a healthier respiratory system. The fresh leaves of the Guaco plant may also be heated and used to kill bacteria, heal wounds, treat rashes, and stave off yeast infections as well as relieving aches and pain along sections of the body. The leaves of the Jamaican Guaco are also used to treat certain venereal diseases by killing the bacteria associated with the infection.

More than just a science — a social movement!

Earlier this year, an advisory panel of public health experts recommended a groundbreaking shift in federal dietary guidelines, advising the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Health and Human Services to adopt a public policy that promotes food that is good for both our health and the environment.

A signatory to the letter, Mindi Schneider, assistant professor of Agrarian, Food and Environmental Studies at the Institute of Social Studies (ISS) in The Hague, said: “Agroecology is more than just a science, it’s also a social movement for justice that recognises and respects the right of communities of farmers to decide what they grow and how they grow it.”

N.O.I. Security Agency

In 1988 the Nation of Islam (N.O.I) created a separate security agency using members of the Fruit of Islam. The agency received contracts primarily to patrol and staff public housing complexes in tough urban areas like Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Chicago, and Los Angeles and received at least $20 million in the 1990s for security work.

Getting past the new found fear perception pirported by ADL and Law enforcement. Through its Law Enforcement Education Program (LEEP), JINSA claims to have arranged Israeli-led training sessions for over 9000 American law enforcement officials at the federal, state and municipal level. “The Israelis changed the way we do business regarding homeland security in New Jersey,” Richard Fuentes, the NJ State Police Superintendent, said after attending a 2004 JINSA-sponsored Israel trip and a subsequent JINSA conference alongside 435 other law enforcement officers.

Two former JINSA advisors who have also consulted for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Douglas Feith and Richard Perle, went on to serve in the Department of Defense under President George W. Bush, playing influential roles in the push to invade and occupy Iraq.

NOI Security had notable successes in Washington, D.C. projects particularly, but had difficulty in others and faced opposition by some members of Congress and the Anti-Defamation League, among others. It also faced scrutiny from federal agencies for racial and gender preference in hiring and from the IRS for failure to withhold taxes from employees.[4][5][6][7]

respect and calm is returning to Flag. And Baltimore housing officials and tenants give a large share of the credit to the unarmed, bow-tie-wearing guards from Baltimore-based N.O.I. Security Agency Inc.

“These guys are more involved with the community than any other security people who worked over here,” says Derrick Turpin, 26, a lifelong Flag resident. “Sometimes, they have their [news]papers out there and the bean pies. You can see some of the young kids around here look up to them; they even want to put on bow ties.”

The company is finding success where the police and other security guards have failed. Some say it is because of the respect the Nation of Islam enjoys in many African-American communities for the clean, disciplined lifestyles .

NOI also benefits from respectful image of the Fruit of Islam, an elite security force that serves as bodyguards for Mr. Farrakhan and provided protection for the Rev. Jesse Jackson during part of his 1984 presidential bid.

Whatever the reason, Baltimore housing officials say NOI has virtually eliminated violent crime in three high-rise buildings at Flag. Housing officials have since broadened the group’s no-bid contract to include several buildings at the Lafayette Courts and Lexington Terrace developments.

“This is critical for future agricultural policies. Currently, most subsidies go to large agribusiness. This must change. Governments must support small farmers. As rural people are migrating increasingly to cities, this is generating huge problems.

“Empirical and scientific evidence shows that small farmers feed the world. According to the UN Food & Agricultural Organisation (FAO), 70% of food we consume globally comes from small farmers”, said Prof Elver.

Hemp (from Old English hænep) is a commonly used term for high-growing varieties of the Cannabis plant and its products, which include fiber, oil, and seed. Hemp is refined into products such as hemp seed foods, hemp oil, wax, resin, rope, cloth, pulp, paper, and fuel.

Other variants of the herb Cannabis are widely used as a drug, commonly known as marijuana. These variants are typically low-growing and have higher content of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), and other cannabinoids. The legality of Cannabis varies widely from country to country, and from state to state in the United States. In many countries regulatory limits for concentrations of psychoactive drug compounds, particularly THC, in hemp require the use of strains of the plant which are bred for low content.[1]

5 Differences Between Hemp and Marijuana

Hemp and marijuana are two popular names for the cannabis plant. The word cannabis often brings to mind images .

Kentucky State University Has 27% Graduation Rate UNDER Thomas Massie’s 4th District of Kentucky/ While REP Received USDA Farm STAMPS Totalling $186,368,544 1995-2012 From TaxPayers

I voted for the bill because separating the two programs is a prerequisite to real reform, and represents a significant change in the way Washington does business” Further, the new Farm Bill still contains the Massie-Polis-Blumenauer Industrial Hemp Amendment the House passed two weeks ago. This amendment is a small but fundamental change in the laws that hopefully will one day allow Kentucky farmers to grow industrial hemp again.

PRESS RELEASE: U.S. Representative Massie Votes in Favor of Agriculture Reform

massieforms.house.gov

Congressman Thomas Massie

The farm bill I voted against two weeks ago was a food stamp bill masquerading as a farm bill, with 80% of the funding going to food stamps. It contained only meager welfare reforms barely slowing the exponential growth of that entitlement program.

As a conservative, I’m glad to see direct payments eliminated in this new farm bill. As a cattle farmer I understand firsthand the importance of agricultural policy reform. While there are still issues with this bill, it is important to recognize that removing the food stamp portion of it is a key first step in a larger process. It is also important to recognize that decoupling food stamps from the rest of the bill gives us the opportunity to debate nearly $400 billion as a standalone item. As a matter of open and transparent government, our constituents deserve to have these two issues debated separately.

 What are the different sections or titles of the Farm Bill?

The most recent Farm Bill proposals contain twelve titles, including the following:

  1. Commodity:  crop-specific subsidies for specified crops such as grain, oilseeds, cotton, and rice (through direct, counter-cyclical, marketing loan, and shallow loss payments) and other industry-specific programs for milk and sugar
  2. Conservation:  conservation standards and payments for land stewardship and other conservation practices
  3. Trade:  agricultural export and international food assistance programs
  4. Nutrition:  domestic nutrition assistance programs like food stamps, emergency assistance, and healthy food initiatives
  5. Credit:  subsidized direct loans and loan guarantees for agricultural producers
  6. Rural development:  programs to boost rural economic development and subsidize rural housing, utilities, and broadband internet
  7. Research:  spending on agricultural, food safety, and biotech research and extension programs
  8. Forestry:  programs for forest protection, stewardship, and restoration
  9. Energy:  subsidies for corn ethanol and next-generation biofuels, other forms of renewable energy, and energy efficiency initiatives
  10. Horticulture:  programs for organic agriculture and specialty crops (like fruits, vegetables, and nuts)
  11. Crop Insurance:  insurance premium subsidies for crop and livestock producers and administrative and operating subsidies for crop insurance companies, among others
  12. Miscellaneous:  provisions related to socially disadvantaged farmers, livestock programs, and other miscellaneous topics

6th District Of Kentucky (Rep. Andy Barr) Summary Information$251 million in subsidies 1995-2012.

$168 million in commodity subsidies.

$24.8 million in conservation subsidies.

$57.7 million in disaster subsidies.

65 percent of farms in Kentucky did not collect subsidy payments – according to USDA.

Ten percent collected 73 percent of all subsidies.

Amounting to $182 million over 18 years.

Top 10%:  $4,347 average per year between 1995 and 2012.

During the food stamp debate, #GOP #RepStephenFincher, who received thousands in farm subsidies, responded to a Democratic Congressman during the debate over the cuts by quoting the bible, saying “the one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”
Fincher himself has received his own large share of government money. From 1999 to 2012, Stephen & Lynn Fincher Farms received $3,483,824 in agriculture subsidies. Last year he took in $70,574 alone.

Who ‘s got the dime bags now? HEMP FARMS FOR POOR AND BLACKS TOO

California Governor Jerry Brown Signs Hemp Bill SB 566! Vote Hemp and the Hemp Industries Association (HIA) are excited to report that Governor Jerry Brown has signed SB 566, the California Industrial Hemp Farming Act. After moving smoothly through the California legislature with strong bi-partisan support, this landmark legislation has now become California law. Introduced by Senator Mark Leno earlier this year, SB 566 ensures that California is prepared to begin registering hemp farmers once the federal government has given states the green light. The California Industrial Hemp Farming Act will establish a framework for farming the oilseed and fiber varieties of the plant, which are used in a myriad of everyday consumer products, including food, body care, clothing, paper, auto parts, composites, building materials, and bio-fuels.

BLACKS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FAMILIAR WITH WHAT IS KNOWN AS THE HEMP PLANT

Where are our hemp farms ?

African slavery in the South was largely a response to the greater demand for labor on tobacco, rice, and indigo plantations.

While President Obama is busying himself with other GOP Crises emergencies, Vermont’s Assembly has voted to approve a measure, which already passed the Senate, to allow licensed hemp cultivation to begin production by the end of this summer. Under current Vermont law, hemp has technically been legalized, but, like Kentucky’s new hemp law, a provision was included that makes hemp cultivation contingent on a change in federal law.

This measure – Senate Bill 157 – which now heads to the governor for final approval, would remove this provision, blatantly flouting federal law in order to bring the state the much-needed revenue and jobs that a legalized hemp market could supply.

“It really is one of the most versatile plants there is. I can’t think of any more versatile that you can build with, eat and make clothes out of,” stated Representative Teo Zagar, a Democrat, “If Vermont takes the lead on this, and we have Vermont natural hemp products, it could be huge. We could have a huge export market opportunity.” Zagar was one of 127 representatives who voted to approve the measure – only 4 voted against the proposal. The measure is expected to be signed into law by the governor, signaling yet another massive victory in the movement to end hemp and cannabis prohibition.

With a market that congressional research indicates consists of over 25,000 various products, it’s about time we end the absurdity, and start taking advantage of this incredibly diverse industrial commodity. – TheJointBlog 

Another one of the reasons has finally come forth. The U.S. Constitution was created by free white “PreamblePeople.” This is to say; there is a Declaration that holds the “Black People“and poor/middle class people as “second class” or less citizens.

Clearly,

The Preamble and the Constitution is addressing to only men and women of their own kind. They established it to promote Christian laws with Christian principles. Like after like, kind after kind.

A clear and precise understanding that, ’WE The People’ was known and understood to mean the people of the white race and none other. The Preamble emanated from and for the people so designated by the words “to ourselves and our posterity” Black’s always worked well with the hemp plant–But landed in jail by the millions.

Marijuana Laws in Minnesota Marijuana, or Cannabis, is a plant that has been used by humans for many thousands of years – including its main uses as fiber (Hemp – especially the male plants) and as a psychoactive agent (Marijuana – the female plants).
This was true all over the world, as well as in the United States – though Marijuana use was associated more with the warmer climate areas of the world.  In fact, 389_George_Washington_as_a_FarmerGeorge Washington himself grew Cannabis on his farm.  There was no such thing as a criminal law prohibiting Marijuana.Until the 1930s in the United States, that is.  Now, in the early 21st Century, it appears that our Nation is coming to its senses again, and may soon End Prohibition again, and Re-Legalize Marijuana.  In the meantime however,Minnesota still has laws making possession or sale of Marijuana a crime.  Here is a summary of those Minnesota laws.Criminal Laws relating to Marijuana in Minnesota are primarily state and federal statutes.  A criminal case related to Marijuana in Minnesota could potentially be prosecuted in either state of federal court (or both), depending upon the facts claimed by police, and upon the exercise of prosecutorial discretion.Minnesota State or Federal Court?

Minnesota Statutes Chapter 152 “Drugs, Controlled Substances
Most of the criminal statutes relating to marijuana are contained in Chapter 152 of Minnesota Statutes.  In Section 152.02, Subd. 2 “Schedule 1,” marijuana is defined as “Schedule 1,” reflecting the current federal legal scheme.  The felony drug crimes are mostly laid out, ironically, as “Controlled Substances Crimes” from “first degree” (the most serious) to “fifth degree.”  Marijuana is one of several drugs made criminal in these statutes.  (Possession of alcohol is no longer a crime.)340_cannabis_sativa_-_medical_drawing


CASH FOR KIDS PREY FOR PRISON INDUSTRY.What is “Sale?”
One interesting feature of the current criminal legal scheme is the legislative arrogance of defining “cultivation” to mean “manufacture;” and then, to define “manufacture” to mean “sell.”  (If you grow a tomato in your backyard and eat it right off the vine, fresh, according to the logic of current Minnesota law, by doing so you have “sold” a tomato!)

So, first Let us see how to make sure the prosperity will go to you  and your own grand children as prescribed by the Constitution.  In that,”POSTERITY means 1. Descendants; children, children’s children of the drafter’s free whites only leaving out the poor from here and forever more.

BEGINNING FARMER AND RANCHER OPPORTUNITY ACT OF 2013 

Smallholder farmers actually produced most of the world’s food and they are also some of the people that sometimes go hungry,” explained ActionAid’s senior policy analyst Doug Hertzler. “There are studies over many decades that show smallholder farmers can actually produce more food per land area than large farms when they have adequate access to resources and input.” there are dedicated people who see great opportunities in agriculture today and want to start their own farm or ranch businesses.

Military Veterans:  the Next Generation of

Organic Farmers 

The Beginning Farmer and Rancher Opportunity Act will invest in the next generation of American producers by:

  • Enabling access to land, credit, and technical assistance for new producers.
  • Assisting new producers to launch and strengthen new farm and value-added businesses.
  • Helping new producers become good land stewards.
  • Providing training, mentoring, and research that beginning farmers and ranchers need to be successful.
  • Conducting outreach on agricultural job opportunities for military veterans.

PROVISIONS
