  9. MI5/6 and this club have a job to do, that is to keep the population sick, to feed them junk, the McDonalds, stuff, and control the general population by poor quality food, sort of malnutrition, or the Rothschild, diet, to destroy the lower class and many middle class.

    • One does have to wonder about this, Don.

      So, what do we do? Buy from local farmers (ask if they are organic), and grow our own food in our gardens and in community gardens.

      • To buy from farmers at markets and growing your food either in your garden or public spaces is a start, most important is to bring awareness to more people that organic produce is not a crank idea, on the contrary to buy chickens and animals caged is a cranky profit making activity that is not only a disgrace for us think we have a right to do this but the food from this source is contaminated by fattening feed and so on, it is likely the hormones fed to animals effect humans, in particular young women can be seen as this effects them.
