(EuroPacificCapital) – The Phantom Recovery – Peter Schiff

In recent months, GDP numbers have rebounded – primarily as a result of record low interest rates reliquifying the credit market and government stimulus jolting consumer spending.

San Francisco’s toxic sludge is good for you!

(NaturalNews) – If someone were to begin marketing toxic sewer sludge as “high-quality, nutrient-rich, organic” compost, he or she would likely be considered a crook and possibly sued for false advertising. Unfortunately, this is what the city of San Francisco and Synagro, “the largest recycler of organic residuals in the United States,” have begun doing to the people of San Francisco.

Most waste treatment facilities across the U.S. contract treatment and disposal responsibilities to Synagro. Because it is no longer permissible to dump toxic sewage directly in the ocean, most of it ends up being reused on farm fields as “fertilizer.” However, San Francisco is the first city to have launched an aggressive public relations campaign to trick its citizens into thinking that the toxic sewage is an organic compost.

“Men stumble over the truth from time to time, but most pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing happened.” -Winston Churchill
It has been a long established joke about not drinking the water in Third World countries. Now it is here in America that the water has been declared unsafe to drink, and it is no joke. Whereas the greatest problem with water in the underdeveloped nations is usually such as amoebic dysentery, serious but reversible, in the U.S. it is rat poison one gets in the drinking water–and it is no accident.
