    Cool. So what about botulism and cancer? Found anything on that? Here's a hint, it is currently being discussed in the Los Angeles Superior Court that Starbucks needs a surgeon general's warning on its label to warn consumers. Last time I checked cancer was a disease.

    Starbucks, others must carry cancer warning in California, judge rules

    And back to the topic at hand...

    Is that what the judge said, "that Starbucks needs a surgeon general's warning on its label".
    Nope here's what the judge said.....

    Superior Court Judge Elihu Berle said in a proposed decision Wednesday that Starbucks and other coffee companies failed to prove the threat from a chemical compound produced during coffee roasting was insignificant.
    .....
    “Coffee has been shown, over and over again, to be a healthy beverage. This lawsuit has made a mockery of Prop 65, has confused consumers, and does nothing to improve public health,” National Coffee Association President and CEO William “Bill” Murray responded.

    Coffee needs cancer warning in California, judge rules

    This judge thinks all roasted coffee is unsafe.
    Is it possible that when Kolfage was criticizing a story put out by Freedom Daily, sure it is, especially if it was against all coffee, which is the product. That doesn't change the facts that I posted above.

    By the way I was trying to prove that this guy is legit. I think I did that fairly well. Your Welcome.

    Forgive me, I am not exactly used to polite conversation nor someone trying to be nice.

    I understand, forgotten. I'm not always polite. :(

    Kolfage is a severely disabled vet. I was motivated.

    Yes, if that came to be, let those who want it pay for it themselves.

    I am actually quite amused that this is an attempt to go around any attempt to stop the wall. Whether or not it works the intent is still there. I am also amused at the fact that if this does work, there won't be a thing anyone can do about it doling out a doseg shoulder shrugs and 'all wells' to all of those who have been amused by the walls obstruction.

    Well, you've figured out how to pay for it.

    Now you just need to acquire all the land for the project.

    Well by using that lolgic the number of Americans who don't contribute a dime to that GoFundMe also represents how many of us are saying that Donald's wall is asinine.

    In the largest federal land seizure in 25 years, the Department of Justice filed more than 420 eminent domain actions against property owners in Texas and three other states to build a border fence—paying $25 million for 21,000 acres of land for 654 miles of fencing to block migrants from crossing the border.

    As President Trump pushes for a U.S.-Mexico border wall—sparking political tension between the two countries—The Texas Tribune and ProPublica show how the U.S. government is likely to seize land for new wall segments by analyzing how it acquired land for border fencing.

    Under federal eminent domain law, landowners can’t fight the taking of their land, only the amount the government will pay for it. Those payments fluctuated greatly depending on whether a landowner had the will and the resources to fight.

    The law calls for property appraisals and formal land descriptions before a government “taking.” But federal agencies, facing a congressional deadline, skipped formal appraisals and legal descriptions, allowing the government to name its price.
    Pulitzer center



    *** Mind you. The Gov already owns where the existing fences sits. This 654 miles is in addition to that.***

    Yeah, but no one cares anymore. That envelope was pushed too far. If it has come to the point where attempts to circumvent opposition occur, than it is blatantly obvious it is intended to be completed without your input, consent, or even consideration.

    Hey look, if folks want to give up THEIR money for the asinine wall that will never, ever be built no matter how many temper tantrums Donald needs to have about it, I don't care a diddly dang about that. "A fool & his money are soon parted."

    0.1% to the goal, 0.02% to Trump's $5B goal. But I can't wait to see how this turns out.

    Nationwide (maybe worldwide) MORE money was spent each on sports, medicine, gambling, and a large number separately or mixed of sinful/greedy corporations or agencies,
    than on doing what God's Word says to do ...... as people serve money or idols , etc,

    Fresh perspective?

    Sure... we all know congress, the house and the Gov are all about the will of the people.
