|Cartoon animals search a family’s belongings without warrant or probable cause.|
In an effort to condition children to accept the police state, the TSA has released a cartoon depicting an animated family enduring a warrantless federal checkpoint at an airport.
The video casts the the travelers and government agents as cute doggie characters that show how fun it can be to go through a checkpoint.
“Its not scary,” explains the father, as he hands his papers to the blue-shirted sentry. “TSA officers are here to keep us secure!”
The children are taught the phrase, “Stop, Screen, and Go!” as their persons, papers, and effects are searched without cause.
“Vrrrrroooom!” exclaims the child as he excitedly steps through the TSA scanner.
“Thank you TSA!” the family praises, as their baby’s milk bottle is returned to them after a search.
According to the TSA, “passengers who know what to expect during screening will benefit from a more positive screening experience.” After all, those who expect to be treated with dignity and in observance to their rights are unlikely to have a pleasant experience getting groped, scanned, and searched.
The cartoon is part of the launching of a new page called “TSA Kids” designed specifically to propagandize children about government checkpoints. It includes coloring book activities, word searches, pictures, and the first cartoon episode. The TSA Blog explains how much fun checkpoints can be:
TSA’s new website for kids offers children and parents of young travelers important security information in a fun and engaging way and encourages children to learn more about TSA procedures prior to traveling. The website features travel security activities as well as security related videos and information to teach children and their parents about the security process. This website will not only keep young travelers informed, it will make traveling more enjoyable for the entire family.
One might wonder why the video avoids mentioning the manual pat-downs which travelers frequently endure. One might also wonder why some more fitting species were not chosen to represent the characters, such as sheep and swine.
Its unknown how many tax-dollars were spent on improving the image of the unconstitutional federal checkpoints.
Children who grow up in this age are exposed to police state activities on all fronts. They witness warrant-less searches in schools, during travel, on television, at public events, on the streets, and more. When an entire generation has been brought up to accept these behaviors as normal, they are conditioned to offer no resistance in the face of the police state as an adult.
The video can be viewed below. Predictably, the YouTube comments and ratings have been disabled on the cartoon.
As is frequently the case with all of these staged events going all the way back to 9/11, that's right folks, wink wink, there are inevitably going to be those who insist that they have a friend who was right there at the scene of the crime, thus proving that these hoaxes are in fact genuine mass shooting sprees.
Let's look closer at what these people are saying. ” I have a friend who was right there in one of the classrooms at Sandy Hook at the very time of the shooting, so tell me again that it’s all just a hoax.” What does this statement actually say? Did your friend actually see Adam Lanza take a rifle and kill anyone? No? Then your friend who was in one of the classrooms at the very time of the shootings is not a witness are they?
You see everyone, at all of these mass shootings at the very same time of these alleged shootings a drill was taking place. This was not a fire drill, it was a drill rehearsing the event of a mass shooter killing a whole bunch of people at a school or a movie theater or wherever they choose the drill to be, and be next, as you can bet another one is coming real soon, as they have yet to win over enough support for nationwide gun confiscation which is what it's all about, don't kid yourself.
Now some of the people claiming they have a friend that was right there at the time of the shooting, well, you know how it works folks, people just like to place themselves closer to the big news story than they actually are. When people actually have a friend of a friend who knows a guy who used to go with a girl whose brother used to be college roommates with a guy that says he knows somebody that was there at the time of the shooting, it ends up as ‘My very best friend was in the next classroom at the time of the shooting.’ You see, people like to put themselves a lot closer to the story than they actually are, and this is understandable. It's just human nature.
There are those rare individuals who really do have a friend that was present at one of the schools during one of the events. Does that mean that their friend has been told by anyone that it’s all phony? Remember, there are drills being conducted at the very time of these alleged mass shootings. People are completely confused and do not understand what’s going on. Youtube videos are widely available showing witnesses saying things such as “We were running a drill, then somebody said a real shooting happened.” Or “I thou away still running the drill or did somebody really get shot? Not until they come home and see it on the six o'clock news today realize that the drill they were running as actually being reported as a real shot we were just running a drill, then I heard someone got shot. I don’t know what to think.”.
You see, a lot of these people involved don't have to know what's really going on, and so they are not told. They are on a need to know basis only. Others, the ones that are paid or volunteer actors and actresses who are portraying the grieving parents or teachers that saw the whole thing are a different story. Many are professional theater actors and there are even those that have been in numerous television shows and even feature films. Yes folks. All the evidence you'll ever need that many of these people are professional actors and actresses with completely different names and live in different states than where the shootings took place can be easily be found on YouTube.
For those that insist they have a friend that was there at the time of the shooting and therefore they don't need to see any evidence to the contrary, well, how can we take these people seriously? If you want to know the truth, the truth is out there. If you don't want to know the truth, if you just want to go on believing everything you are fed by the media then that's your choice. There is a large percentage of the population that no matter how much evidence you show them they will refuse to see it.
I will continue to post evidence that all of these shootings are complete hoaxes and you can look at the evidence or not. Just know one thing; every time I post another article sharing proof that these mass shootings are nothing but theatrical performances I receive a phone call threatening my life and the life of my family, or insinuating they are going to sue me if I keep blogging ‘about them’, as was this morning's wonderful wake up call. And if you think that it’s just some crackpot who happened upon my cell phone number think again, because they're not calling my cell phone- they are sending me these transmissions directly into my head, through a technology known as Voice to Skull. So you may wish to at least examine some of the evidence, because if I was just completely crazy about all this, then why would there be those who have access to such advanced technology that would go out of their way every morning trying to stop me from blogging about their God-awful acting.
(Note from Greg: As someone who has appeared in over 50 or 60 television shows and feature films, let me explain that out of place and over the top choice of hat and scarf being worn by an actor portraying a parent of a Sandy Hook school shooting victim. On every movie set there is a large wardrobe trailer, many times a 53 foot semi tractor trailer, filled with all kinds of clothing to be selected by members of the wardrobe department. Just imagine an attractive young female, an aging gray haired woman and a 30 something gay guy sizing you up for your role and choosing the most cliche and stereotypical clothes you could possibly imagine. (These people are just who you will find working in Hollywood, as no other industry I have ever seen hires more employees, both in front of and behind the camera, based on bigotry, racism, stereotypes and nepotism, and the funniest part about this is its all reflected on the screen.)
Gray haired woman: "Oh you're playing a detective? Let's put a trench coat on you and this circa 1972 wool hat like they wore in 'The French Connection'. Now that's a detective", the old woman triumphantly declares.
Gay wardrobe man: "Your playing the librarian right? White sweater, pearls and reading glasses! Sailboat captain? Hat with anchor on it. Driving out in the country? Don't forget your ascot. Maitre d'? Yes. French? Oui. Where's that Tuxedo? Farmer? Overalls! Banker? Pocket watch! Cook? Chef's hat! Indian? Here's your headdress! Eskimo? Don't forget your spear!
That's how it goes when you make it to the front of the line of the wardrobe trailer on the set of a television show or movie. Now take another look at the hat and scarf being worn by our Sandy Hook actor. Do you now see what I see?
(Gay wardrobe man) "And what role are you playing? Parent of a slain little girl? Ooh, sounds fun. Have I got a hat for you. (Excitedly) It's a cute little blue cap with an N on it! Get it? For Newtown! I'm so good its scary. There... (squeezing the cap on our actors head.) Fits like a glove. Now somethings missing... I've got it! Viola! A scarf. Cause its chilly up here in Newtown silly. Brrr... Now go out there and fool people into forfeiting yet another constitutional right. Ooh... make believe is super fun!"

(Note from Greg: The point of sharing this article is to awaken those who yet put absolute faith in all those who wear a badge or have may have won an election. There are many members of law enforcement and government who honor the rights of others and who will honor their vow to uphold the U.S Constitution, though there are also a number who will not. Let this story be an eye opener for you. A man is judged by his actions, not his words, and as we move forward your skills of discernment will be called upon as there will be many who attempt to lead us or demand our obedience. As the U.S. continues to devolve into a mass prison system, it is members of law enforcement such as these who will be the 'guardsman', as those individuals who fit a certain profile are being systematically recruited by the world management teams for their New World Order global police state. Can you just imagine the horrors we will endure when thousands of men such as these fill the ranks of the new U.S. police forces? Those members of law enforcement who respect other's rights and who honor the U.S. Constitution will not be patrolling our streets and will not be there to protect you against tyranny if we do not begin to recognize the differences in these men and women and support the right teams today before it's too late to make a difference.)
MILWAUKEE, WI –A disgusting scandal involving police officers performing illegal anal cavity searches with the intent to “degrade and humiliate” dozens and dozens of victims has come to an apparent conclusion, which some feel amounts to little more than a slap on the wrists for those involved.
Between February 2010 and February 2012, a small group of Milwaukee officers took part in a string of serial assaults on subjects pulled off the streets. In many cases, the officers demanded the subjects produce the drugs they assumed were being hidden somewhere on their person. When they were not satisfied with the cooperation from the subjects, an officer would jam his hand into the subject’s underpants, touch his genitals, and insert a finger into his anus on the side of the road. Some of the complaints stated that drugs were planted during these searches. At least one complainant was a juvenile, and one stated that he was fingered so hard that his anus bled afterwards.
The group’s ringleader was Milwaukee Officer Michael Vagnini, assisted primarily by three other officers; Jeffrey Dollhopf, Brian Kozelek and Jacob Knight. Although 7 officers and one supervisor were originally suspended, the four officers mentioned above were the men the district attorney felt had enough involvement to pursue legal actions against.
Officer Vagnini was the the one who directly performed the searches with his hand; the others were present and assisted with detaining the victims, holding them down, provided Vagnini cover while he molested them, and then failed to report the crimes to superiors in the department.
|Milwaukee Officer Michael Vagnini|
A Pattern of AbuseFor two years the complaints piled up from the victims, with the knowledge of department superiors, including Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn. The chief stated that the department had been aware of the behavior of his officers for “a couple of years,” but waited to investigate until the department recognized a pattern. One complainant said he notified the department of Vagnini’s abusive tactics as early as 2008.
Vagnini and his cohorts were assigned to Milwaukee’s District 5, and regularly pulled over drivers on a pretense of not wearing a seatbelt or of having darkly tinted windows, followed by searches without a legal reason, according to prosecutors.
Finally, in October 2012, city officials felt charged the officers, and the public began to become aware of the stories. One case was described by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel:
In one case, a man had gone to check on his aunt’s house in the 3500 block of N. 10th St. When he came outside, his vehicle was surrounded by squad cars. Vagnini put his bare hand down the man’s pants, touched his scrotum and inserted fingers into his anus, the complaint says. When the man pulled away, Vagnini put him in a choke hold that caused him to slobber onto Vagnini’s arm. Vagnini repeatedly told him to “stop resisting” as he pulled back so hard on his neck his feet almost left the ground, the man said. Two other officers held his arms and one put a gun to his head, the complaint says.
Vagnini claimed he found crack cocaine inside the man’s anus, but the man insisted it “was not on him prior to the search,” the complaint says.
|Michael Vagnini appears in court|
“When I got the cuffs on, he patted me down,” he told WISN-12 News. “But he rushed his hand. He rushed his hand up my butt.”
Another complaint describes a man being fingered so forcefully that his anus bled. From JSonline:
In another search, Vagnini conducted a traffic stop near N. 12th and W. Locust streets, the complaint says. Vagnini handcuffed the driver and asked him for “the drugs.” The defendant denied having drugs but actually had hidden drugs inside his anal cavity, according to the complaint.And the stories kept coming forward.
Vagnini put the suspect in a chokehold from behind, released him and then stuck his gloved hand inside the defendant’s underwear, “shoving his fingers deeply into the defendant’s butt crack and possibly into the defendant’s anus,” the complaint says.
The man was screaming, and as a result of Vagnini’s actions the man was bleeding from the anal area for several days, the complaint says.
Robert Mann, 55, contends that Police Officer Michael Vagnini stopped him as he was walking near N. 31st St. and Atkinson Ave. in June 2011 and without probable cause, pulled down Mann’s pants and put his hand in Mann’s rectum “in an unsafe, unhygienic, and intentionally humiliating fashion.” No drugs were recovered from Mann.
[A] juveinile, identified as K.F., was 15 when he was riding in a friend’s car that was stopped by police on N. 26th St. in December 2011. According to the suit, he was ordered out of the car before Vagnini reached into the teen’s pants, touching his genitalia and his anus while Police Officer Jacob Knight watched.
In July 2009, Chavies Hoskin, 28, was stopped while driving on N. 13th St. Vagnini reached into Hoskin’s pants and pulled a bag of cocaine from Hoskin’s anal area, while Sgt. Jason Mucha and Officer Thomas Maglio watched. Hoskin was charged with the delivery of cocaine. His suit contends that the officers lied in reports, and that Vagnini also falsely testified under oath about how and where he found the cocaine.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel analyzed the cases of at least 13 victims as of August 2013.
Keon Canada was pulled over five times during the summer of 2011 and subjected to butt-cheek searches four times, and that officers opened the front of his pants another time. No drugs were found during any of the stops.
A plaintiff identified only as R.P. contends he was twice subjected to improper searches of his anal areas by former officer Michael Vagnini without probable cause, and the during one of stops Vagnini took his watch, despite another officer’s warning “you can’t do that.” R.P. said that when he went to the District Five station immediately following the incident to reclaim his watch and file a complaint, he was denied a complaint form and his watch and warned that police would report him to the FBI.
Someone identified only as M.C.claims he was stopped and illegally searched three times in 24 hours during the summer of 2011. No drugs were found. In December 2011 and January 2012, M.C. contends he was again stopped by Vagnini and other officers and on both occasions was struck in the face by Vagnini before being pulled out of a car, held on the ground and subjected to a forceful penetration of his anus.
The suit lists three stops of Walter Coleman and buttock searches by Vagnini, including one where Vagnini first put on rubber gloves. In most of the cases, victims said Vagnini used his his bare hands or would pull their underwear up tight, as if doing a wedgie, then use the underwear as a shield between his hand and the anal area. The lawsuit says during the gloved incident, Coleman asked Vagnini if he had a search warrant, and the officer laughed.
James Ashford claims he was subjected to six illegal searches over a six month period starting in the summer of 2011. At one point, he, his mother and other relatives met with a District Five lieutenant to complain that Ashford was being harassed. According to the lawsuit, the lieutenant told Ashford he should stay out of certain neighborhoods, and never acknowledged that the officers’ actions, including the warrant-less, public rectal searches, were inappropriate, or that the officers would be investigated or disciplined.
The ChargesAfter the long official silence, Police Chief Ed Flynn made public condemnations of the charged officers. “Quite frankly, I’m disgusted by the willful actions by some of the officers in our Police Department. And I’m appalled by the willful inaction of some other officers in our police department in failing to stop egregious conduct,” said Flynn.
In October 2012, the following charges were levied:
- against Michael Vagnini, 25 charges including a sexual assault charge;
- against Jeffrey Dollhopf, 3 felony counts of misconduct in public office, 1 felony count of false imprisonment, 1 count of being a party to an illegal cavity search, and 1 count of being a party to an illegal strip search;
- against Jacob Knight, 1 count of misconduct in public office and 1 count of being a party to the crime of an illegal cavity search;
- against Brian Kozelek, 2 count of misconduct in public office, 1 count of false imprisonment, and 1 count of being a party to the crime of an illegal strip search.
Wisconsin law prohibits police officers from ever being involved in body cavity searches, regardless of probable cause. This kind of abuse is delegated to professionals like doctors and nurses, according to Wisconsin Statute § 968.255 (3). And they may be only performed after a search warrant has been obtained.
Not only were the searches illegal according to the Wisconsin legislature, they clearly should be classified as rape according to the DOJ.
Rape is: “The penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim.”This seemed to be acknowledged by the prosecution. “I know Michael Vagnini understood the sexual undertones of what was going on,” Assistant District Attorney Miriam Falk said. “It was intended to degrade and humiliate them, and that’s what makes it a sexual assault.” She said while Vagnini may not obtained sexual gratification from penetrating his victims’ anuses, the victims felt violated nonetheless.
– U.S. Department of Justice
Yet as part of a plea deal, prosecutors agreed to drop the sexual assault charges since Vagnini agreed to plead no contest to four felony charges and four misdemeanors. Vagnini will no longer have to register as a sex offender.
In fact, all of the perpetrators were given plea deals and given light sentences.
Officer Jeffrey Dollhopf, 42, will face a $300 fine and and was ordered to 100 hours of community service for his involvement in the assaults. Since he pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct as a party to the crime, most of his charges were wiped out. As part of his deal, he agreed to resign from the department. He spent one full year on paid leave from the department.
Officer Brian Kozelek, 34, was given a similar deal. After a full year of paid vacation, he now faces a $300 fine and a mere 20 hours community service. He also agreed to voluntarily resign his position at the department.
Officer Jacob Knight, 32, will actually face a small amount of jail time. He was sentenced to 20 days in the House of Correction, a $300 fine and 60 hours of community service after an extended amount of paid time off.
As for Officer Michael Vagnini, his record of molesting innocent people, illegal detainment, illegal searches, penetrating orifices for fun, framing people with false evidence and ruining their lives has come to a close. After terrorizing his community for years in a most disgusting and egregious way, he will face just over 2 years behind bars — 26 months.
Faith Restored?Do these sentences restore faith in the justice system and the Milwaukee Police Department, as some claim?

Attorney Jonathan Safran, representing some of the victims, said he’s “tired of the excuses” about training and supervision. “… The concern is that it goes beyond just these officers. We have allegations of a number of other officers in a number of other districts doing some of the same kinds of things.” Of the sentencing of Officer Knight, Safran said, ”I’m not sure if it’s strong enough.”
Vagnini’s own lawyer said Vagnini’s aggressive tactics were no secret within the department and the court system, saying the whole system encouraged and rewarded his crime fighting tactics to get drugs off the streets. “He’s left holding the bag for everybody,” Michael Steinle told the court, citing Vagnini’s dedication to fighting crime.
If what the defense and prosecuting attorneys say is true, the corruption in Milwaukee may go a lot deeper than just the 4 officers who have been officially charged. A deeper cleaning of the department may be in order, and only the Milwaukee mayor can see that it happens. His contact information is provided below.
One of the ironies of this story is that sadistic, violent freaks who physically abuse the public are given lighter sentences than many of the very people whose lives were ruined and were dragged into cages for the crime of possessing arbitrary plants and substances, harming no one but themselves.
And why should twisted individuals get lighter sentences for these acts due to their wearing a badge and a uniform? If a gang of strange men approaches a person, accosts them, threatens them with violence, detains them against their will, and penetrates their orifices with parts of their bodies, that should be considered rape or sexual assault, and those involved should be considered accomplices. That’s what would happen to a normal person without a badge. “Official misconduct” is only the tip of the iceberg for these monsters.
It should be noted that even if a few corrupt cops are no longer a part of the police force, the very same oppressive and unjust drug laws remain in place for future cops to abuse and destroy innocent, non-violent lives with. There’s a lot to be disturbed with after reading this case, and the problems will not go away without serious overhaul of the department, the laws, and the legal system itself.
From noon till late at night, about 100,000 citizens and labor workers angrily demonstrated against the current government’s election manipulation scandal and clampdowns on labor groups as well as moves toward privatization of the nation’s railway system, though the administration denies such claims. Some observers are calling the outbreak of demonstrations proof that public anger has nearly “reached its boiling point”
Social workers are weighing in and taking away children from parents who give in to their cravings and feed them too much
- Super-size youngsters taken away by social workers after being overfed
- One child had a BMI of 35 - the equivalent of a six-foot man weighing 19st
- Comes as an increasing number of parents give in to children's cravings
- Obese children have been taken away by social workers after being overfed by their families, it has been revealed.
The super-size youngsters were placed in care across the UK amid fears their weight was wrecking their health.
One child had a Body Mass Index (BMI) measurement of 35 - the equivalent of a six-foot man weighing 19st.
It comes as an increasing number of parents give in to their children's cravings for unhealthy food - a phenomenon known as 'killing with kindness'
In the past year alone, five British children have been taken from their families because of overfeeding, according to a survey by the Sunday Express.
These include two in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, one in Oxfordshire, one in Salford, and one in Hounslow, London.
And the year before, five other obese youngsters were placed in care in Sheffield, Portsmouth, Lincolnshire, Slough and Harrow, London.
Professionals say families' gross over-eating can be one of the factors that leads to their children being taken into care.
A social worker told the Sunday Express: 'Only in extreme cases would we take a child into care just because of their weight as we would seek to work with the family to improve their eating habits.'
Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust revealed that during the past year, doctors have found themselves having to treat a ten-month-old baby for obesity – with a one year old also being referred to Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust as a result of her weight.
And a staggering 45 youngsters aged 17 or under have had fat-fighting operations on the NHS in the past five years, according to Conservative MP Priti Patel.
''Only in extreme cases would we take a child into care just because of their weight' - Social worker
However the true scale of the problem is likely to be much higher, as less than a third of hospital trusts have released information about the number of young children whose weight has spiralled out of control.
As well as being overfed, many overweight youngsters have also been fed a high-fat, sugary diet.
In 2006, ex-Chief Medical Officer Sir Liam Donaldson warned that health chiefs would consider removing children from their families if they became super-sized, therefore risking their health.
The first reported case was an eight-year-old girl in Cumbria, who became so obese that she was forced to wear size 16 clothes.
She was taken into care in 2007 weighing a staggering 10st.
A Department of Health spokesman said England has one of the highest rates of obesity in the western world, but health professionals and voluntary groups are working together to help individuals 'improve their diet and lifestyles'.
1. Corporations Profit from Food Stamps
It’s odd to think about billion-dollar financial institutions objecting to cuts in the SNAP program, but some of them are administrators of the program, collecting fees from a benefit meant for children and other needy Americans, and enjoying subsidies of state tax money for services that could be performed by the states themselves. They want more people on food stamps, not less. Three corporations have cornered the market: JP Morgan, Xerox, and eFunds Corp.

3. Almost 70% of Corporations Are Not Required to Pay ANY Federal Taxes
And that’s even before tax avoidance kicks in. The ‘nontaxable’ designation exempts 69% of U.S. corporations from taxes, thus sparing them the expense of hiring tax lawyers to contrive tax avoidancestrategies.
The Wall Street Journal states, “The percentage of U.S. corporations organized as nontaxable businesses has grown from about 24% in 1986 to about 69% as of 2008, according to the latest-available Internal Revenue Service data. The percentage of all firms is far higher when partnerships and sole proprietors are included.”
In recent years the businesses taking advantage of the exemption include law firms, hedge funds, real estate partnerships, venture capital firms, and investment banks.

This means revenue comes from the poorest residents of a community rather than from billion-dollar corporations. Many of the lottery players don’t realize how bad the odds are. Fill out $2 tickets for 12 hours a day for 50 years and you’ll have half a chance of winning.
Some astonishing facts reveal the extent of the problem. Low-income households spend anywhere from five to nine percent of their earnings on lotteries. A Pennsylvania survey found that nearly half of low-income residents planned to gamble at a newly-opened casino. America’s gambling losses in 2007 were nine times greater than just 25 years before.

It gets even worse. While the individual teams themselves are not exempt from federal taxes, they enjoy multi-million-dollar subsidies from their states for new and refurbished stadiums. Fans – and non-fans – of the Washington Redskins, the Cincinnati Bengals, the Minnesota Vikings, the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are among those who pay taxes for their hometown football fields. New Orleans taxpayers paid for leather stadium seats. For the Dallas Cowboys, a $6 million property tax bill was waived.
A Harvard University urban planning study determined that 70 percent of the capital cost of NFL stadiums has been provided by taxpayers, rather than by NFL owners.

A disturbing but fascinating report called “Farm Subsidies and the Big Dogs” lists Washington, DC, Chicago, and New York City, in that order, as the worst offenders.
— In New York, “Many entities receive the federal subsidies at their downtown office buildings, such as 30 Rockefeller Plaza, or at their million dollar residential condos.”
— In Chicago, “Nearly every neighborhood in the city receives federal farm subsidy payments – including the Gold Coast, Downtown-Loop, Lincoln Park, and even the President’s neighbors in Hyde Park.”
— In Washington, “Even U.S. Senators are receiving farm subsidy checks.”
Perhaps more of us should become farmers. In Florida, according to Forbes, “anyone could legally qualify their land as farmland by stocking it with a few cows.” Wealthy heir Mark Rockefeller received $342,000 to NOT farm, to allow his Idaho land to return to its natural state.

Both printer ink and bottled water cost the consumer more than they should. Calculations by DataGenetics reveal that the ink in a $16.99 cartridge comes to almost $3,400 per gallon. The cost of a gallon of cartridge ink would buy enough gasoline to run the average car for over two years.
Water seems to cost less than that, until the details are factored in. Companies buy public water at almost no cost, treat it in unknown ways, and then sell it back to us at an exorbitant markup. Nestle, for example, pays about two dollars for public water that produces about 100,000 plastic bottles of water.

Each season throughout the Caribbean Islands baby sea turtles are attacked as they attempt to make their way to the sea by swarms of birds who do not at all need the sustenance to survive. Today, hundreds of volunteers fly to the Caribbean Islands where sea turtles make their nests and protect the developing eggs. When it comes hatching time, the volunteers join together, building a human wall to protect the turtles as they open their eyes for the first time and instinctively (can you say reincarnation) flop their way to their new home in the sea. If you would be intersted in volunteering for such a rewarding mission, please read the following and visit here.
'Volunteer Work With Sea Turtles! Get your feet sandy at a turtle project. For those who can brave long walks, late night shifts, insects, and occasional downpours, volunteer work with sea turtles can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life. Volunteering on a nesting beach is hard work; an opportunity to make a difference, participate in wildlife scientific research, and meet new people. The benefits of volunteering include new experiences, lots of good exercise, learning a new language, and a good addition to a growing resume. At most projects, the work involves participating in nightly beach patrols, looking for nesting adult female turtles and helping researchers collect data and protecting nests. Depending on timing, volunteers may also help release baby sea turtles (or "hatchlings"). Each project works with specific species including primarily leatherbacks, olive ridleys, and green turtles.'
