Organic Food

The definition of organic food varies widely. In general, organic food is produced without the use of chemical fertilizers, growth stimulants, antibiotics, or pesticides
The idea and demand is to have healthier food without a significant impact on our environment. However, the outcome of farming organically may not produce such benefits because organic agriculture costs more. From the perspective of science and consumers, there is insufficient evidence in the scientific and medical literature to support claims that organic food is either safer or healthier to eat.
There are just too many variables to consider. Common sense and moderation must prevail.

Common Sense

Common sense is the sound and prudent judgment based on a simple perception of the situation or facts. We commonly say that common sense is not common, and I often ponder why not. Perhaps we rely upon the opinion of others instead of being critical thinkers ourselves. Our education system and our media rich world constantly bombard us with bits of information, often aimed at influencing us to change our opinion/behavior. Whenever l read “news” on the internet, I try to read the comments because more often than not, the comments give a more realistic view.

Our Future

The Social Security Trust Fund will be broke by 2034. The cost of everything is escalating, including taxes. There is global pollution and climate changes, terrorism, starvation, wars, overpopulation. We are teaching our children anything goes, they are entitled to whatever they want, work is optional, any discipline is abuse and unacceptable, and someone else is always responsible.
Obviously we have to change this course by using common sense and rewarding good behavior. Individual freedoms must come with personal responsibility.
