added this crap to my pristine carrot/beet/celery/ginger/garlic juice today in an effort to cut back on the number of pills im trying to choke down every day which is in the neighborhood of a dozen. not particularly tasty, and it turned my deep red juice into a shit brown muck. i had to throw it in the blender just to get it to mix properly. not particularly appetizing.

"Like a feeble magician practicing misdirection, the government is attempting to get us to look at all the wrong things. We have serious medical problems in our country but if they can keep us looking at "the wrong hand" they can get away with their tricks."
"From 2000 until October 2002, I was a Marine Corps lieutenant general and director of operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff. After 9/11, I was a witness and therefore a party to the actions that led us to the invasion of Iraq--an unnecessary war. Inside the military family, I made no secret of my view that the zealots' rationale for war made no sense. And I think I was outspoken enough to make those senior to me uncomfortable. But I now regret that I did not more openly challenge those who were determined to invade a country whose actions were peripheral to the real threat--al-Qaeda. I retired from the military four months before the invasion, in part because of my opposition to those who had used 9/11's tragedy to hijack our security policy. Until now, I have resisted speaking out in public. I've been silent long enough."
