image World Trade Organization Attacks Commonsense Country of Origin Labels 120_meat-labeling-wto-world-trade-organization.jpg original image ( 328x328) - by Food & Water Watch
Washington, D.C.—Today, the World Trade Organization (WTO) ruled that mandatory country of origin labels (COOL) rules for meat and poultry that went into effect in 2013 still ran afoul of the global trade rules. The WTO’s compliance panel decided that the goal of country of origin labels was not trade illegal, but it narrowly found that the implementation of the COOL rules discouraged livestock imports from Canada and Mexico.

It’s hard not to see the irony of a big oil company contributing $250,000 to a campaign for a water bond that allocates $900 million for alleged “groundwater sustainability” less than two weeks after the Center for Biological Diversity released state documents revealing that almost 3 billion gallons of oil industry wastewater were illegally dumped into Central California aquifers that supply drinking water and irrigation water for farms.

Bill Jennings, the chairman and executive director of the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance, observed the deal is bad for many water contractors, not just fisheries and the environment. “It would give Westlands a permanent water contract before all Endangered Species Act litigation is completed,” said Jennings. “In effect, this gives Westlands a leg up over other south-of-Delta contractors.” Photo of (center) Bill Jennings slamming Governor Jerry Brown's $7.5 billion w...

text CDC Cover Up: Blacks are More Harmed by Fluoride - by Fluoride Action Network
When fluoridation was virtually the only fluoride source, black children suffered double the toxic effects of fluoride than others in the first human fluoridation experiment conducted on the entire population of Grand Rapids, Michigan, which began in 1945. To preserve fluoridation, it seems, this information has not been broadcast to the Black community.

image CREDO Action urges NO vote on Prop. 1, the California Water Bond 120_bill_jennings_1.jpg original image ( 5184x3456) - by Dan Bacher
CREDO joins Food and Water Watch and AFSCME 57 in opposing Prop. 1. The Con argument for Prop. 1 on the Progressive Voter Guide states: "Proposition 1 is an expensive and unfair taxpayer giveaway to special interests that won’t solve the drought or help secure our water future. It allocates over $3.6 billion, without oversight by the legislature, to build dams and pay for water transfers for corporate agribusiness. Prop 1 with interest will cost CA taxpayers $14.4 billion or $360 million pe...

Carolee Krieger, the executive director of the California Water Impact Network (C-WIN), said the contract extension “is the equivalent of being told in the 20th year of your 30 year mortgage that you have to add another 30 years to pay for undisclosed costs, or else you will lose your home.”

Tim Redmond, Editor of the website "48 Hills, the Secrets of San Francisco" says that 17th District California State Assembly candidates David Campos and David Chiu are quite different candidates, especially on hard core economic issues. However, the race between them is now so close that it's all about who most effectively gets their voters to the mail with their absentee ballots or to the polls between now and November 4th, election day.
