"DON’T CONFUSE FEAR WITH COMMON SENSE..." 'Bettejo Dux' (Inspiration Wednesday)


Bettejo Dux has lived on the cosmic Garden Island of Kaua'i for over 40 years.
Bettejo is a regular opinion writer in the Garden Island news and is the author of the
famed novella, "The Scam."  Her latest fiction
 "Children of extinction" is now  released and available on Amazon!

DON’T CONFUSE FEAR WITH COMMON SENSE

Scared, Seigfried? No. It’s just many of us have good sense. For the county — or GMO farmers — to use a toxic spray that kills the bees is beyond stupid. It’s insane. Imagine, a world without bees to pollinate.

We have egg factories, pig factories, beef factories, milk factories, where the animals never see the sun, live in such a cramped, sick environment only multiple use of drugs keep them alive. The food they produce for human consumption isn't fit to eat.

Thank goodness we do not fluoridate our water supply.

Pill pushers? Come on doctor, every time we take a drug, we weaken our immune system. There are times — but they are few and far between — when a drug can save a life but those of us who have good sense, and have nurtured and tended our own good health, quite often manage to avoid them. You’d be surprised.

And you can’t intimidate me, Seigfried, just because you have a couple letters in front of your name.

Further, if I were you, I’d be careful about bringing up the past. A list a mile long of medical nonsense — historical horrors — and “pseudo” science mistakes, could fill this page. Don’t tempt me.

We need to grow food for health instead of wealth. Produce milk children can drink. We need to restore the health of the soil, diversify and create jobs for people instead of a few mindless puppets, who dance for a dollar when someone with too many of them pulls the strings.



P.S.
A few responses from the Kauai Garden Island News comments page;

Aloha Bettejo, we are going to frame your comment today…it has never been said so concise and thorough.

Congratulations Bettejo Dux! A well written letter on a very serious subject. One question though? Why didn't you support Bush and Romney, instead of the Cretan you've pushed on everyone for the past 6 years, you would have been a lot closer to your stated goals! There would have been a short, instead of long, “depression”, the economy would be strong, deficits and debt would be in good shape, and jobs would be everywhere. Now that’s the environment needed to easily make the changes and fix the things you've made us aware of. Oh well, sure hope you learned something?

`A fine letter Bettejo. The last paragraph says it all. Thank you for your response to this nonsense.

Doctors do not prescribe medications to do harm to us. There are many times that without antibiotics many of us would be dead. People are living longer now than ever before... yada yada, yada..
