Nestle Makes The Very Best . . .

While Californians face one of the worst droughts in history (What global climate change?), the Neslte Corporation is doing what capitalist companies do best – exploiting natural resources for maximum profit. This time, it’s water. California citizens are facing stringent water consumption restrictions, but that’s not stopping Nestle from sucking out the aquifers for it’s multi-million-dollar bottled water operation.

This is from Al Jazeera America:

Last week saw California adopt mandatory restrictions on civilian water use. People caught watering their lawns to the point of runoff, hosing off sidewalks or driveways or washing cars without a shut-off nozzle can face fines of up to $500 a day. That message, however, has not, it seems, reached Nestlé Waters North America, makers of a variety of bottled waters, including Arrowhead brand.

In contrast to the Arrowhead labels showing snowy mountain streams, the water in many of those bottles comes from a spring in Millard Canyon, on the grounds of the Morongo Band of Mission Indians’ reservation in Cabazon, Calif., west of Palm Springs. Access to the spring actually belongs to the Morongo tribe, which bought the rights from the Cabazon Water District in the early part of the last decade for $3 million. Soon after, the tribe cut a 25-year deal with Perrier Group of America, a division of Nestlé, to bottle Arrowhead water. California water districts are required to report their water consumption and the levels in their wells to the state. The Morongo Indians, however, are a sovereign nation, and therefore exempt form oversight.

Through 2009, Nestlé Waters, the division that operates the Millard Canyon facility, provided the state with annual reports, but after that, the flow of information has slowed to a trickle. The state has used a rounded estimate of 244 million gallons pumped out per year — roughly the annual usage for 480 area homes, according to calculations used by area newspaper The Desert Sun.

A spokesman for the Morongo tribe insisted they had a long history of caring for the environment and argued their partnership with Nestlé created 250 jobs. But others on the reservation and in surrounding communities wonder if shipping out bottled water is the best use of a scarce resource. Nestlé is America’s largest water bottler, controlling a third of the market. In addition to Arrowhead and Poland Spring, it sells water under the Nestlé Pure Life, Deer Park, Perrier and San Pellegrino names, as well as several other regional brands.

Nestlé insists its water bottling facilities are operated with an eye toward environmental sustainability. Of course, given that bottled water is not really environmentally sustainable on its own, that would be a very neat trick.

What a neat trick, indeed, Truthseekers. Bottled water is a non-renewable resource. It’s not like planting trees to replace those used in the furniture or paper industries. Worse, the fossil fuels used in the production of the plastic bottles further wreaks havoc on the environment. Matters not to Nestle, which is the same corporation that in the mid-70′s sent sales representatives dressed as nurses into poor African nations to convince young mothers that its baby formula was superior to actual breast milk. As a result, thousands of babies died from malnutrition (from improper mixing) or dysentery from mixing the formula with polluted water.

There’s that nasty water issue again. Nestle is knee-deep in the muck. And it never apologized for any of the infant deaths it caused in “third world” nations as a result of its shameless, profit-driven propaganda against breast milk.
Will Nestle face any restrictions in the US for it’s similarly exploitative use of water in the face of near-catastrophic shortages? Well, Nestle is a corporation and corporations are people my friends. So saith the Supreme Court. And as very wealthy “people” they enjoy more benefits than your average water-deprived citizen. Paraphrasing Orwell, some “people” are more equal than others. And, therefore, more entitled to disappearing resources – even water.

  1. The only two people that brought up the fact (on air) that the US Navy shot down an commercial airliner and killed 290 innocent people were Rachel Maddow and Mike Malloy. No one else had the backbone to do it! I wasn’t surprised in the least bit.

The Long, Hot Summer

Regardless of the claims made by Neocon Luddites, global climate change is a very real thing. The good news is there are specific measures that can be taken to reduce the rate of climate disruption, if not reverse, the current and future damage from decades of barely-regulated fossil fuel consumption, among other toxins. But theContinue Reading

Ronnie will make plenty of friends in prison when they find out that he murdered 4 little kids. The other prisoners will be more than happy to show him how much they hate child killers. The Aryan Brotherhood isn’t going to protect him either. They might kill him before anybody else gets the chance.

  2. Wow, I had an advanced math class in high school w/Brad Snell (Who Killed the Electric Car). I was wildly jealous as he had total recall (not, which I’ve learned, an entirely a good thing — who wants to remember the bad stuff, eh?)

    But it just goes to show, our inner self, our youngSTAR knowledge is NOT to be discarded carelessly.

    Peeps, try something small — a few seeds or one tomato plant. When the bad times arrive, you’ll have a head start. And SAVE ALL YOUR SEEDS!

  3. In Kathy’s blog above, the New York Times says: ” . . . by midcentury 60% of our electrical power will come from nuclear sources.” This to me is an arrogant & most dangerous prospect. They are in denial about what has already transpired at sights connected to nuclear power plants around the world. And they still don’t know what to do with the radioactive waste. Here in Ohio, I am sandwiched between to nuke plants.

    It suggests to me that the NY Times is just a gatekeeper for the status quo. Anyone who even implies that these things are safe has got to have a hidden agenda.

  4. Imagine, if you can, the vast amount of American emissions
    that would be cut if the right wingers and religious crazies
    would just ‘Shut the Fuck Up’, even for a day.

    Dot, respectfully, while I never have given a thought as to
    what you eat, I must admit to picturing the scene that would
    follow should you ever get clocked by an airborne fish flying
    through the air at Pikes Fish Market. I can see you hitting
    the floor yelling, “FISH! FISH! MOTHERFUCKING FISH!!!!

  5. Denny, You’re right. I would yell “MOTHERFUCKING FISH!” then I would get off of the floor and scream “WHO THE FUCK HIT ME WITH THAT GODDAMN FISH?!” When I do go to Pike Place Market, I avoid the Pike Place Fish Market. There’s always a shitload of tourists hanging around watching fish being thrown all over the goddamn place. I know that if I did get smacked by a fish, somebody’s ass would get kicked across the parking lot. I do love the market though. Lots of goodies and cool stuff to buy. You could spend the whole day taste testing the different yummies that are available. :D Good way to spend the day. :D

  6. We are QUICKLY running out of time, and water!

    From an article by James Nash:

    Lake Mead, the man-made reservoir that supplies 90 percent of the water for 2 million people in the Las Vegas area, has been reduced by drought to the lowest level since it was filled in 1937, according to the federal government.

    The lake, now at 39 percent of capacity, has been dropping since 2012, according to U.S. Bureau of Reclamation data, as much of the western U.S. has suffered the most serious drought in decades. The shortfall is endangering water supplies to the residents and 43 million annual visitors to the driest metropolitan area in the country.

  7. More drought news:

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Regulators in drought-stricken California are proposing stringent new conservation measures to limit outdoor water use, including fines of up to $500 a day for using a hose without a shut-off nozzle.

    The most populous U.S. state is suffering its third year of drought and in January Governor Jerry Brown declared a drought emergency, allowing the state to request federal aid.

  8. Being from Los Angeles, I have now decided to cut back 75 percent on my lawn watering, and I am looking in to probably getting my lawns (what is remaining of them) with a combination of gravel-scape and synthetic lawns. That way I will not use ANY water for my lawns, as well as cut down my maintenance of the yards to almost zero.

    I’m telling you all, this drought situation is getting ultimately serious out here in the West!

    Take notes, everybody….this is about adapting…in order just to survive!

  9. Person,
    If you want to go “Synthetic” try filling your
    former grasslands with political campaign signs.

  10. Good wakeup column, Kathy–wish every Amurrican was forced to read it. But half of them probably wouldn’t even let its message get past the optical nerve connecting the eyeball to the brain

  11. Catching up on last night’s podcast with my morning coffee. Just chiming in to say I completely agree about the democratic party, which sold out its liberal base long ago.

    And I have no illusions about Hillary. She is a neocon and a corporatist (strong ties to Monsanto, just for starters). Unfortunately she has also been “anointed” for 2016. I’ve seen some of her supporters get very defensive out on the Internets and claim that people hold her to a higher standard because she’s a woman. While that may be true for some, and while I’m quite sure we’re going to be forced to endure the most hateful sexist rhetoric from the right wing during the elections, I don’t hold Hillary to a higher standard because of her gender. I hold her to a higher standard because she puts a “D” after her name.

    Anyway it doesn’t matter because the national elections are a beauty pageant these days, offering Americans nothing but the illusion of choice.

    I sincerely agree with Mike about focusing on local elections. The system is rotting from the top, but maybe there’s still hope for local governance. It’s not much, but it seems to be all we have at the moment.

  12. Also, dovetailing off last night’s discussion about the de-funding of public schools… charter schools are a total scam — a grift — funneling public funds into private coffers. The money is not used for the benefit of the kids or the local community, it gets vacuumed upward to administrators, who answer to no one, because charters are mostly unregulated (which illustrates the problem with all privatization).

    And very often, these administrators have criminal backgrounds (a feature, not a bug).

    The following article in the Hartford Courant illustrates the rampant corruption in the charter system:

    Hustlers Cash in on Charter School Craze

  1. Gee- how could I tell that Mike wrote this piece…

    By the time I read down to the part where the BBC was urging
    their science reporters to seminars conducted by SCIENTISTS,
    the voice in my head was screaming, So should our members of
    congress!

  2. The British have so much more common sense than we do! I want to move to England! Who wants to go with me? :D

  3. One thing I love about the “Fair and Balanced” faux theme meme is that it sounds so much like “Fare: Unbalanced” which is actually the truth! And unless I’m misremembering, I first saw/heard that sort of fake counterargument on that self-important overly loquacious William F. Buckley show on PBS, decades ago. I despised his weasley tactics, using relatively obscure words in complex sentences to silence the opposition.

    You can imagine how I despaired over the years, until I finally heard you, Mike. I thought I was surely an alien as the media deteriorated to, well, plain ol’ shit, but not even shit worthy of garden fertilizer. While I may actually BE an alien, at least I’ve found a kindred soul whose wisdom (and rage) resonates with my mindset.

    TYVM! xoxo

  4. I could be wrong, and someone from the UK would have to verify this, but it seems like there’s still a concept of shame over there. (Also in Canada and probably Australia, as well – it’s the impression I get anyway.)

    Whatever else is going on (and I know people in the UK are experiencing a lot of the same awful economic policies as we are here)… at least public officials (pundits, etc.) can still be shamed and embarrassed.

    Here, shameful behavior and speech have become a badge of honor. I.e., frothing-at-the-mouth religious bigots are proud of their anti-science views, and the carnival barkers and assclowns in the media, and many politicians, are more than happy to accommodate them and egg them on.

    So I completely agree, I can’t imagine our networks implementing a policy like the BBC’s. Our networks are all about bread and circuses and profits these days, not truth. Not science. And certainly not high standards.

Plunderstorms

Plunder.  In our post-Constitutional America, it is everywhere. According to the dictionary, plunder can be a noun or a verb: verb: to steal goods from (a place or person), typically using force and in a time of war or civil disorder noun: the violent and dishonest acquisition of property. In either case, it is aContinue Reading

  1. And the plunder in Detroit continues.

    I read some articles at the voiceofdetroit.net site and am deeply sad and angry. Kevyn Orr is the emergency financial manager (EMF) there. Like all EMFs, appointed (NOT elected) Orr takes the place of an ELECTED official, thus locally overthrowing our [alleged] form of government. He’s not there by the will of the people, but by the will of a fascist governor. Moreover, EMFs so far are expensive, hire expensive consultants, know little to nothing of the local situation, and are there to fulfill the treasonous Koch/coporate agenda: privatize everything in sight, even if (maybe Particularly if) it kills citizens.

    I’m furious that corporations that CAN pay but haven’t paid their water bills still have service, whereas PEOPLE who CAN’T pay are being sentenced to death via lack of potable water and water for sanitation.

    Which brings to mind the Warka water tower. So far, they’ve been installed in various Ethiopian villages. Why not every other block or so in the US? They cost a HELL of a lot less than a filthy murderous bomber or a subsidy to a filthy murderous corporation. They’re pretty, too.
    http://www.wired.com/2014/03/warka-water-africa/

  2. Upon reading the word “Plunder” in Kathy’s post,immediately
    I thought Detriot. Capt. Mary, too, nailed it. As to why we
    do not install the Warka water towers to prevent people from
    dehydrating to their deaths, as a nation, could it be that
    we are not as civilized as the Ethiopians?

  3. I’ve been reading about Detroit today, too, and think it’s unconscionable that they have to seek help from the U.N. because their leaders in Michigan are perpetrating this on them, and no one in D.C. is listening.

    On an unrelated note, I’ve also been reading about the huge austerity march in London this past weekend. I didn’t hear about it at the time; just stumbled on it via some UK writers I follow online.

    They share many of our woes, but they also seem more willing to mobilize and speak up about it. I don’t know what it’s going to take over here.

Private Parts

The Supreme Court has one week remaining to decide several major cases, and – as usual – the mainstream media is largely ignoring the long-lasting implications these decisions will have.  At stake are freedom of speech, religion, abortion rights, cellphone privacy, broadcast television rights, and more.

  1. Wow! Gotta make a big bowl of popcorn for the Chris Christie and Scott Walker-Karl Rove Show. And I am hoping for live coverage of this slobbering big mouth Christie in the docket.

  2. A quick excerpt from an article about the continuing drought here in the Southwest:

    The bathtub ring can be seen for miles. The 120-foot-high band of rock, bleached nearly white by mineral-rich water, circles the shoreline of Lake Mead. Water levels have dropped by almost 100 feet in the past decade, and the ring has emerged as a stark reminder of the drought enveloping the American Southwest. It also represents a looming crisis for the largest drinking-water reservoir in the U.S., one that has prompted the most ambitious water-construction project in recent history.

  3. So Mike –

    When you say, “I don’t think Obama is evil,” are you saying he did not know the Syria WMD false flag was a lie to get his approval for more oil and gas wars, in the same way Bush knew the Syria false flag was a lie?

What the FUCK is the matter with these assholes?! Amendment II

    “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” That is EXACTLY what the second amendment says!

If you think you’re so bad ass join the military and go fight ISIL in Iraq! None of you will because you’re too chickenshit to do it! You don’t want to shoot at anyone that will shoot back at you! I’d love to scoop up all of you son of bitches and drop you right in the middle of that meat grinder and say “Go for it! You think you’re so bad? Prove it! Go ahead and shoot at someone!” If I EVER see ANY of you turd sucking, gun toting fuckwads in a store that me or my friends or family are in, I fucking GUARANTEE you that I WILL call 911 and tell them that are people with guns shooting!

Anyway, I did it in response to a post from Kath which I liked and which gave perspective on life. I asked for no tomatoes thrown at me because usually linking California with women’s shaman group would bring many opportunities for humor.

Gulf War III ???

President Obama is caught between a rock and a hard place, no pun intended.  He’s catching hell from the right for withdrawing troops from Iraq when a status of forces agreement could not be reached with neo-dictator Maliki.  And he’s sure to catch even more fire from the left if he sends troops in nowContinue Reading

    Raising the minimum wage didn’t reduce poverty the first 36 times it was raised, it doesn’t work and it only encourages mediocrity. I don’t know how places like Seattle think its gonna work. I also don’t know what the IMF is smoking!

  2. Why are the politicians so blind and stupid that they can’t figure out that the U.S. needs/should/must stay out of the bloody cesspool of violence in Iraq. They don’t even know who they should bomb! If you don’t know, THEN DON”T FUCKING DO IT!!!! It’s so goddamn simple to understand but you damn well that those stupid motherfuckers are going to drag us right back into that nightmare. You KNOW it’s coming. The media and the blood thirsty NeoCons are screaming “We need to get back in there and help Maliki! If we don’t, there will another 911!” If I had to the power to do it, I would tell Maliki “You wanted us out! We’re out! You’re on your own asshat! Quit crying like the little bitch that you are! Deal with the goddamn problem! Grow a pair!” We’re gonna get involved with another fucking gulf war. You can feel it. :( The light in the tunnel is a huge, blood soaked train covered with razor wire and decomposing, grinning corpses that is speeding towards us. And that train is going to grind our troops into a gory, shredded mess. I hope that if our stupid ass politicians try to send our troops back to Iraq, that the troops say with one, loud, unified voice “Hell no! We’re not going back! FUCK YOU!” I want them to rebel to save themselves from another (who knows how many years) of hell, death and misery.

He’s an empty suit & an expert deliverer of eloquent speeches, which is why the barons in the balcony put him there. Did we really think a Mccain/Palin ticket was serious contender?

  1. I propose that all truthseekers support a march on Washington to demand that Dimson Bush, Dick (I hope they can get his crypt open) Cheney, Donald (you’ll find the WMD’s east, north, south & west)Rumsfeld, and all the rest of their criminal buddies, be outfitted in full battle regalia to meet the advancing ISIS jihadists in Iraq. They are the ones responsible for the debacle,and should finally be held accountable for their actions. Then again, this is probably the same bunch that’s providing these fighters with their guns and ammo. War is a racket.

    You guys with me, huh!

    he had.” Terrorists win! (We do Too!)

    Glad you liked my post of the George Will column from 2 years ago about improvements in quality of life for people with intellectual disabilities formerly known as mental retardation.

    https://www.mikemalloy.com/2014/06/washington-post-goddam/

    People have trouble adapting their views to new information out of fear of a ‘personal existential crisis’ that ‘if one thing I thought I knew was wrong then what else do I think I know is wrong.’ Most people refuse to examine their views and ‘set personal boundaries’ not to talk about ‘certain subjects’ like ‘religion or politics’ to protect themselves.

    Here’s another of George Will’s columns from 2000 where he divides maintaining school discipline and teaching students to act with good morals that could improve school discipline from more federal funding (the IDEA Act) for schools specifically for education for students with disabilities like George Will’s son. He creates the divide to support W Bush 2000 campaign. The IDEA Act promised a 40% federal cost share to special education programs but as of 2002, has never been higher than about 15-20%. The objections to ACA medicaid expansion by Rethuglican governors that has a net 10% increase in state medicaid costs after 3 years is probably rooted in the old state Rethuglican whine of ‘unfunded federal mandates’ on state spending if any federal assistance is taken. Tax cuts for the rich and corporations and military spending on anything but the VA budget divert the spending. IDEA funding probably helped George Will’s son unless he went to a private school.
