Monday Moaning

NB: The original post has been removed as the owner of the source website objected via a comment:

“I did not grant permission to reprint my article in full, so please change this to only be a snippet to my original piece. Thank you.”

In nine years of blogging I have never been chastised in this manner for combining with another site in the event of spreading important news this way, even though I credited his site as the source.

To the blogger, I apologise. I have removed the entire content to be safe. Had his comment been a little more pleasant I would have acceded to his request. I will, however, still thank him for the heads up on this issue.

Corporate Charlatans vs Super Heroes

The fight for labeling products is on. Proposition 37 is due for the vote.

See here how the two sides are shaping up. Who is for – Super Heroes, and who is against – Corporate Charlatans.

It makes me so mad that these corporations are putting $23bn into the campaign to fight product labeling; it just goes to show that they have a lot to hide from the public.

They are frightened that if we know the truth about the ingredients in their products that we will stop buying them.

It is the consumers’ right to know what is in any product.

My suggestion is, don’t wait for the labels, stop buying these brands NOW! Support the brands from Organic Heroes!

You can make a difference!

Head across to the Cornucopia Site and make your opinion known with your vote.

  1. yes, it is maddening. thanks for reminding me of the labels to avoid. but here i do try to grow what i can (this being infinitely easier as it is CA) or buy from the local farm stand. as much local as possible! also, buying basics helps too. cook and bake your own. the less processed the better. less packaging too! money has corrupted everything. hard to see a way out of that currently.

    • >shiborigirl, you’ll note that I have changed the post. However, it is the people’s right to know. I think it is important that we grow what we can and in this manner fight the corporations. Their greed is a blight on humanity.

      • i can sympathize with the writer however. it’s tough these days for any of us to make a living in the creative arts. writers have it especially tough-i know a few and their pay is constantly being pushed down. (there are many who will write for free (whee…see my name in print!) and the magazines take advantage of that-of course that is their right but to what end? they are still selling their advertising and their subscriptions).

        good to create original content and to reference other’s work and link to them. some are more prickly about it than others. i’m of the more prickly sort…i at least want to be asked. carry on- this is all good information!

      • >shiborigirl, I am quite the opposite, nothing on my blogs is copyrighted, including original content. I do ask permission to use obviously copyrighted images, sometimes after the fact and I have never been so admonished, rather thanked.

        I adopt the attitude that if someone considers my utterings to be worthy enough to repeat, go for it, but link the source; that’s all I ask.

        Had he started, “I appreciate your support/interest/etc… then the complaint”, I wouldn’t have taken umbrage. There are ways, and there are ways.

        Appreciate your views.

  2. […] still dark, I rose with the sun. Everything was fine until I got a snotty remark comment left on my Eco-Crap Monday Moaning about the use of another site’s post. In nine bloggerful years, I have never been chastised […]

  3. It is a shame people limit the spread of knowledge, especially on important issues of sustainability. I am happy for people to part or fully quote Liberated Way as longs as the credit the source without passing it off as their own.

    On the GM issue, go forth and defeat the GM barons.

    • >Alex, a check of his site shows that he is in it for the money – ads. The stupid thing is he may have got visitors from the link, but now he gets none at all. But I agree with you, that matters of global importance, copyright should not be an issue. Likewise here, as I said in a previous comment, reprint what you like from here, just link it.
