Not sure if the jury is in about GMOs quite yet. What I do know is that regardless of the issue, money drowns out public opinion.
 
This is outrageous! The people want to know what they're eating! Some states already passed laws requiring GMO labeling.. Now Congress has been bought off and they're passing legislation telling STATES that they can't require labeling! EXCUSE ME!!!
We have 535 little tyrants, funded by the financial elite, dictating just about every aspect of our lives. IT HAS TO STOP NOW!
The first step: TERM LIMITS FOR US CONGRESS!
With the second option of Article 5, the people and the States can supersede the authority of Congress; adding a Term Limits Amendment to the Constitution; and Congress has no authority to stop it.
Become involved! Sign the petition! Volunteer to help collect signatures, even if only a single page (15 signatures). With YOUR help, we can make this happen!

Top 10 Things You Can Do To Help Bernie Sanders
A TO-DO list for newcomers to the political process

So you love what +Bernie Sanders has to say, and want to help out. That rocks. Thank you for committing yourself to fixing what ails our country. Below is a checklist of concrete things you can do to help out with starting today. Remember, the only thing required for villains to win is for ordinary folks to do nothing.

1. Like/Follow/Share Bernie’s official pages on every social media site you are on
2. Sign up to volunteer, donate, and buy some merchandise
3. Get to know the issues
4. Register to vote
5. Start attending your local Democratic Party meetings
6. Train how to campaign effectively
7. Host events
8. Recruit volunteers
9. Talk to everyone about Bernie
10. Have fun!



1. Like/Follow/Share Bernie’s official pages on every social media site you are on

Google+  http://plus.google.com/+BernieSanders
Facebook  http://www.facebook.com/BernieSanders
Twitter  http://twitter.com/BernieSanders
Instagram  http://i.instagram.com/PeopleForBernie/
Reddit  http://www.reddit.com/r/SandersForPresident/

Make sure to check on his posts daily. Like each one, consider leaving a well thought out comment, and share it using the hashtags: #Bernie2016 and/or #FeelTheBern 


2. Sign up to volunteer, donate, and buy some merchandise

Volunteer http://berniesanders.com/volunteer/ 
Donate http://secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/bernie-100000
Shop http://store.berniesanders.com/

This grassroots movement is going to take a while to get organized, so don't expect them to give you events to volunteer for right away. Much of this will you figuring out yourself how best to help out. Sign up to volunteer anyways, and get on the mailing list to stay up to date on what's going on.  Bernie is not going to be selling himself out to the billionaires who are pillaging our country, so it is important to donate anything you can afford. Even $5 seriously helps. If you can afford it, but some merchandise from the store to wear proudly in public to spread the word. Be cautious of unofficial merch sites though unless they specifically promise to donate most of the proceeds to Bernie's campaign. 


3. Get to know the issues

http://berniesanders.com/issues/ 

We are not going to win over people unless we actually understand WHY Bernie's message is so compelling and why he actually has the solutions to what ails our country.  This means actually reading up on the issues so you not only understand them, but can explain them to people who don't pay attention, and also to counter the common counter-arguments by the shock troops of the oligarchy. Start with the big 3: Wealth Inequality, Getting Big Money Out of Politics, and Stopping Climate Change.


4. Register to vote as a Democrat

http://www.usa.gov/Citizen/Topics/Voting/Register.shtml

Registering to vote can be easy or tedious depending on whether your state's political structure is designed to encourage or discourage people from exercising their democratic right to vote. Even if you identify more as an Independent, Green Party, etc., make sure you register as a Democrat since Bernie is running in the Democratic Party. Once you're registered, make sure you stay registered next year, because a certain party has a habit of purging people from the voter rolls so they show up and suddenly are ineligible to vote. 
    

5. Start attending your local Democratic Party meetings

http://asdc.democrats.org/state-parties/
http://www.berniefacts.com/state-primary-info-2016.html

Nearly every part of America has some type of local Democratic Party unit that meets regularly. Some local units are highly organized, have regular functions, and good attendance. Others may just have a few people meet a few times each year, but have more regular meetings at the state capitol or large metropolitan areas. Whatever the case, start attending these meetings and take an active role. 
     
While most Democrats that attend meetings will likely agree with most of what you do too, understand that unlike the Republican Party that has a very strictly enforced ideological conformity, the Democratic Party is a “big tent.”  There are progressive, centrist, and even some conservative Democrats, and we have a wide variety of views on a wide variety of issues. Many Democrats support Hillary. That's OK. You can point out some differences, but don't go negative. Stay positive. 

Bernie has the edge on the authenticity, a message that resonates, and enthusiasm so our numbers will continue to grow. Show up, be nice, stay respectful, and bring friends, especially those that don't traditionally vote. We need to have enough Bernie supporters going to all tiers of Democratic Party meetings to eventually win the primaries in each state. This is essential. 


6. Train how to campaign effectively

http://www.wellstone.org/events
http://www.democracyforamerica.com/trainings
http://www.progressivemajority.org/training

Getting someone elected is way more complicated than it should be since big money has turned it into slick advertising campaigns, so there is a lot to learn. The oligarchy spent 42% of the money in the 2014 election to try to buy the results they want. Understand that it is very difficult to counter this caliber of corruption in our campaign system, but progressive champions like Paul Wellstone have proven throughout history that we can win with grassroots, people-powered politics if we fight hard enough and have a good game plan. To win, we need to FOCUS our energy and enthusiasm, and this requires getting trained on the best ways to campaign.

See if you can attend one of the incredibly informative trainings offered by Camp Wellstone, Democracy For America, Progressive Majority, various unions, or even your state's Democratic Party. Most of these are 2 day seminars of intensive study and interactive exercises, although there are some slightly less effective online courses. There is a cost to these, but if you are poverty stricken, let them or your local Democratic unit know, and there is often assistance to help defray the costs. 


7. Host events

http://www.pdafund.com/events/cat.listevents/
http://www.peopleforbernie.com/meetup_event_resources

Digital Activism, or Clicktivism is a good start, but real world solutions require real world action. You can start by hosting events. A good way to begin is with a Bernie Party at your house, at a local park, or  at a local coffee shop, restaurant, or bar. Consider putting it on the Progressive Democrats of America and/or People For Bernie calendar. Spread the word locally, let the local media know about it, then have some good conversations!  


8. Recruit volunteers

If we are going to defeat big money in this campaign with our grassroots movement, we are going to need legions of volunteers. This means recruiting others into the fold. Set a goal to get 10 new people involved by the end of the year, and encourage them to bring in 10 more people each. Town by town, neighborhood by neighborhood, county by county, and state by state we can win this, but it requires actually doing something, persuading voters, and getting new people involved.


9. Talk to everyone about Bernie

Talk to friends, relatives, neighbors, coworkers, and random strangers that you bump into about Bernie. 


10. Have fun!

While the issues our nation and world are facing can be daunting, fixing them is a joyous endeavor. It's never a question of whether something is possible or not, but HOW we do it. We are lucky to be embarking on an epic quest of this magnitude. We are the tip of the spear of bold reform, and when we are finished, life will be better for all Americans. Have fun in your daily journey to make this happen.

The receptionist and nurse were very nice, however this is where the pleasantries stop. The doctor that came in to examine me was one of the most rude people I have ever met. I was told by another doctor from this same urgent care a year ago that my dark mucus and sore throat were symptoms of a sinus infection. Coming back with the exact same symptoms this guy made me feel like an idiot for being worried about my health and trying to spot patterns. He said "I don't who told you that but if you look on the internet you'll see you just have a cold." First of all should this dude be using web MD for his diagnosis? Second of all... You told me that!!! You guys were the ones who diagnosed me with the sinus infection last time!!! Something terribly broken about this place. Stay far away!

Harsh and rather abrubt communication with service rep. Over priced and took 5 days to fix a simple oxygen sensor. Stay away!

When you walk in you are greeted with a plethora of middle aged styled decorations. The building itself is old-looking and has a very comfortable feel on the inside. The bar allows you to taste up to 6 - 3oz samples and with some of the being upwards of 9% ABV its plenty! All their brews are delicious and well balanced. Imperial Pale Ale is my favourite!
