The world is a better place when Entrepreneurs and ordinary people start to make a difference when they take action.
My two Guests this week, Susan Hunt Stevens the CEO of an outstanding web site, “Practically Green” and Mark Winterer, the CEO of “Recover Green Roofs” are two people I am thrilled to have on my show.
Being a Green Manifesto is easy when you have the tools. A visit to practicallygreen.com will help you get all the tools you need to understand the importance of being sustainable, eco-conscious, and a true Earth Warrior.
The greatest thing about this web site is it shows you exactly what companies and products are Green…. Susan’s team behind the web site makes it easy since they do ALL of the leg-work and investigations behind the ‘green washing’ that is out there…. so all listings of Ecological/Sustainable information you see is honorable. AND you get a nice education on the entire subject matter of being TRUE GREEN, to boot! Excellent is the word for this starting place for every man, woman and brilliant child who wants to take action and get started right away.
I want to save Wildlife. This is one of my deepest passions in life.
What I love about “Recover Green Roofs” is that Owner, Mark Winterer, has brought a European way of life to the USA: Green Roofs.
In a large metropolis, the suburbs, or even in rural areas, we could use more greenery, wild places for nesting and cleaner air quality.
Green roofs are one part of the answer to our ecological woes today. It is time that this practice become “mainstream” in all home and commercial building projects, and it is time that the US Government start to actually practice what they preach in lip service to the taxpayer.
Green Roofs need tax incentives to become part of our sustainable planning for cities and townships. And it needs to start now.
Visit recovergreenroofs.com and empower yourself with this incredible knowledge that does bring life back to our landscapes that have been paved, destroyed, disrespected, and polluted.
The world is, indeed, a better place when good people decide to take the smallest action to save a bird who fell from its tree… or to plant a garden using sustainable methods… to supporting businesses who share the honorable passion to help save our planet. Start today.

Your life, indeed, does depend upon how much you know. The public is deliberately led to believe that “Organic” equals Humane or even Sustainable…. but because of the mad rush to cash in on the public’s demand for Organic, the unethical Agri-businesses have lobbied unrelentingly to get the USDA to take over the “Organic” certification so that they, too, can somehow be marketed as kinder, gentler, healthier, and even life loving companies.
Nothing is natural or remotely good about companies like “Monsanto” or “ADM” or “Quaker Oats”…. and the list is staggeringly long… So, your voice as an American Citizen who works hard to pay the very taxes that are mis-used and abused in wasteful subsidies to these earth-destructing companies MUST be heard by your State representatives.
The chain of deception is really un-American, and totally un-Constitutional. But it’s happening, and only our Voices today can stop it. The will of our double-tongued, elected officials is just simply not there. The disappointment of this reality is very deep for me, and it should be for you, too. The money-donations-financial support– whatever you want to call it… has become this nearly perfect circle of corrupt crony-ism and political favors that sell everybody else short, and literally kills our environment.
What are we if we don’t have clean air, water, soil, food? What is our future? Why is nobody in Washington asking this very important question? And why are they forcing the working American population to subsidize their own poisoning? Why are we so submissive to this tragic, circle of evil?
One of the great things about my job as as Talk Show Host is that I get to meet and talk to so many honorable, brilliant Visionaries in our world today.
It was a great pleasure to talk to Dr. Arie McFarlen on my show. Her message is one that we all, as good people, need to recognize as a wake-up-call to fight back against the big-agribusiness deceptions.
The unthinkable cruelty, cramped confinement, and horror that takes place in the Nazi-style “factory farms” [paid for by your taxes] is unacceptable. The toxic drugs, hormones, and other toxins injected and fed to the animals are directly winding up in the very neatly packaged, “innocent” looking meat products in most chain grocery stores today.
Anything you can imagine as unconscionable happens behind those factory farmed walls.
The adrenaline and other fear hormones that pump through the bodies of terrified animals also gets into the animal products that get sold in cellophane packages in grocery stores.
These toxins are proven carcinogens to humans.
Why are we forced to pay for this misery and sickness? Don’t we have a collapsed, untenable “health care system” that will never be solvent until the very Citizens of this country are given honest, healthy food choices that are the “norm” and not the exception for the wealthy?
Why are our Organic, sustainable, local, humane, small farms NOT given our Tax Subsidies? Can someone in Washington with a brain please stand up and give us, the people who care about quality of life on Earth, an answer?
“He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of man by his treatment of animals.” —- Immanuel Kant
Check out Dr. Arie McFarlen’s website and become conscious of the life that you were supposed to be granted in this world.
I advocate a Vegetarian lifestyle and certainly a Vegan lifestyle. It is healthier for the Environment and for your digestion, your brain, your entire body/mind connection. You will feel lighter, think more clearly, and realize the health benefits within a few weeks of being conscious of your food choices.
However, if you do eat animal products, I highly advocate all people to ONLY support your local, humane, organic, sustainable farmers for this. EVERY township has local farmers who are humane and honorable in their farming practices, and NOW is the time to vote with your dollars for all products that are not produced with toxic drugs, anti-biotics [literally means anti-life] and with pesticides.
Our waterways are our lifeblood. We, as the people who pay the taxes that our over-grown government relies upon, need to stand up and be a collective voice for our lives today and certainly for the innocent lives whose existence will be in question if we do not preserve the future by demanding sustainability right now.

Right now. It’s happening. Our last indigenous Wild Horses, Burros, Wolves, and all North American wildlife are being exterminated, with YOUR tax dollars. The waste is unthinkable, and the horror is indescribable with words.
To save our Wild Horses, and our last remaining and very delicate eco-system that relies upon indigenous flora and fauna to remain intact, must be saved from brutal “round ups” and the arrogance of bribed Bureaucrats.
“The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” —-Gandhi
My Guest for this week’s show was Horse Advocate and Author, Ray Davis. His book on the history of our Wild Horses and the plight they have faced for more than 100 years to survive, is a story line based on the facts of the Genocide with a fictitious story line for both children and adults to learn from. “No Fences” is available on Amazon and Kindle.

Both our domestic Horses and our Wild Mustangs need our voices to stop them from being trucked for hundreds of miles, and often times thousands of miles, to their slaughter. The ignorance and apathy that is behind this evil practice is made up of a blood thirsty trail of “Kill Buyers” and a matrix of ‘invisible’ Special Interests whose only concern is to have their pockets lined with Taxpayer MONEY and illegal tactics that rape our land for their own benefit.
Sociopathic? You bet. Illegal? You bet. …. So, why, we all ask, does Ken Salazar, the Secretary of the Department of the Interior of the United States — appointed by Obama to be one of his personal Czar’s– have the gall to ILLEGALLY allow these wretched, cruel, wasteful, taxpayer funded “Round Ups” of our last remaining Wild Mustangs? Why does no one in the current Administration seem to give a damn about this pathetic waste of taxpayer money in the grip of an Economic hardship?
The Cattlemen’s Association. The Big Agri-business Associations. The Oil/Gas Associations.
These familiar three Lobby Groups give untold sums to Politicians to buy their blinded policies. They are behind the abuse of power we have seen performed by Ken Salazar and other corrupt cronies of Obama, like Bob Abbey of the Bureau of Land Management. Both Abbey and Salazar are Cattlemen AND Oil men.
Hmmmmm. So, the cattle ranchers want to kill every living being on our public lands [not the SMALL FARMS, mind you, it's the BIG, AGRI-BUSINESS "ranchers" who run factory farms and graze their millions of head of cattle on our last remaining wild lands at taxpayer expense.]
They want to do away with our Wild Mustangs, who are beautiful to see running free, all in the name of water hoarding for their cattle…. but they want to do this on our public land supported by the Taxpayer, and they want the Taxpayer to pay for this debauchery.
Who, in their right mind, would remotely accept this insane policy? Why is the Taxpayer ignored in this closed-door decision that irreparably damages our wild lands and causes the same Genocide we, as Americans, are supposed to stand up against?
Politicians complain about the Czars and Dictators in other Countries around the world, and continue to say they will “fight for freedom” yet they condone this flagrant abuse of the Law already in place here in the U.S.
Are we a Nation of Hypocrites? Have we been reduced to Taxpayer Robots who are poisoned by false promises, dirty air, toxic water, Chem Trails, Vaccines, and patriotic songs to sing?
At what price is a Politician willing to look the other way, break the Law, and ignore this domestic Genocide?
You can You Tube “Wild Horse Round Ups” and see dozens of undercover horror that exposes the truth behind the waste and corruption and arrogance of Ken Salazar, Bob Abbey, The entire ‘system’ of the Obama Administration who says one thing but does another entirely.
Our Wildlife, all of it, has such an important role in our survival on this Earth.
“Going Green” is nice to talk about, but to put the entire eco-system in danger of collapsing to appease greedy Cattle Agri-businesses and Oil mongers is the exact antithesis of anything “Green.”
Don’t talk to me from a Tele-prompter anymore, Mr. Obama. I want you to strap on some Integrity and Truth and take a look at the very fact that you are destroying my quality of life, and the future of our Heritage and well being when you sell yourself [and all Taxpayers] out with Bribes in the name of Ego, getting elected, and apathy.

Tags: Conscious Life Practices, Homeopathy, Learn Homeopathy For Life, Women as Healers
My conversation with Joette Calabrese on Saturday, July 2nd, 2011 was one where I felt empowered to be a healer. Check out her website HomeopathyWorks.net
I was so touched by Joette’s web site and how she realized, in her own journey to natural healing, that she could heal with her own hands!
Joette’s powerful message is for all women to realize that they are the healers and that they need to take up this awesome life-giving gift and return to their rightful places as intuitive, knowledgeable, and very honest healers in the family.
What ever happened to the mid-wives and “Doulas” in the USA? They were marginalized and often persecuted by the male-dominated, chemicalized, pharmaceutical-regime.
This show, for me, was a wake-up call for women to empower themselves to learn about Homeopathy, and to start practicing the wondrous effects of energy healing. Utilizing natural, honorable practices that bring long life, homeostasis, and self awareness have been, for way too many decades now, stripped from our hands by the ‘western medical paradigm.’ BUT now, it is the time to take back the power to heal, to be informed, and to save our money by learning the art of healing through Homeopathy!
Joette and I both advocate eating REAL, WHOLE, Unprocessed foods that nourish the body. This is essential in creating the right bodily environment that is strong and can heal itself.
Happiness, Love and peace can be achieved when you are on the road to health via self-awareness, empowerment, and knowledge.
Tags: Be a Voice For Our Last Remaining Wildlife, Save Our Wild Horses, SAY NO To Illegal Wild Horse Round Ups!, The Cloud Foundation Support
We need to all stand up to the Bureau of Land Management AGAIN as they plan to round up thousands more of our gorgeous heritage all in an idiotic effort to appease the Oil and Cattle industries that want to literally kill off ALL wildlife from our PUBLIC, national parks supported by the taxpayer!
The irony is so pathetic it is hard to even imagine such audacity. But it is going on, and the “BLM” wants to start rounding up in just two weeks!
Please go over the head of the BLM and send your outraged voices via email and letters and phone calls to Ken Salazar [an oil and cattle meathead appointed by Obama to be the Secretary of the Department of Interior] AND directly to your local elected officials to be a voice on our behalf! Send letters to your Congress people and tell them we are NOT going to be devoid of our final remaining Wild Horses and wildlife!
Please check out The Cloud Foundation and see the issues and how you can help!

Stay away from “conventionally” grown [pesticide laden] fruits and vegetables as though your life depended upon it…. because it does!
The United States currently gives our tax dollars to ‘conventional’ and big agri-business farmers to literally poison us… we need to stand up and speak out now for our well being and our quality of life!
The 12 foods to ONLY buy Organic, or grow your own:
8.) Bell Peppers
12.) Kale/Collard Greens
Take action and take a moment to email/write your elected officials to stop this madness of poisoned food!
