Green Cleaners

Green cleaning products have stormed the marketplace in recent years. I use vinegar, baking soda, tea tree oil and a lot of elbow grease to clean around the house. Then I spotted a headline "Hospitals warned about 'green' cleaners". Read the article for yourself but my interpretation is that greenwashing of products has created the problem to some degree. Products claim to be green, healthy and as effective as the other version without explanation as to what it is. I think in hospitals they should be doing a lot more due diligence on what they are buying and that is a big part of this problem too. Combining misleading information with lazy people doing the buying and you have a recipe for disaster. With the availability of information there is no excuse for this kind of thing but it is a stark reminder that everyone needs to know what they are using and what they are buying.

This is a call to everyone to please step outside the right vs. left paradigm. While there are important issues worth debating within this paradigm, all of them will be moot if we do not focus on a much greater issue outside this paradigm. Thomas Jefferson warned of wealth concentrating to such an extent that it threatened the state. Nowadays the media has taught us all very well to ridicule anyone who talks of central banks usurping the power of government. Well now I suppose the media will have to laugh at themselves, as many outlets from Newsweek to the Financial Times of London are openly discussing the creation of a "bank of the world" that will control economic policies of every nation. I invite you to watch this video, which details how this is currently taking place. While it focuses on our current officials' cooperation with these plans, it steps out of the typical political paradigm by highlighting the cooperation of both parties. Please do not look to politicians to protect us. Only we can protect us. And our first step must be to reach out to police and military. Without their cooperation, the global elite won't have the muscle to exercise their will of oppression. Please share this oath-keepers blog with them.
