Stop and think of it this way: suicide is illegal, right? But TPTB have the right to kill you anyway they see fit, be it chemicals, food, water, whatever,right? You can't kill yourself, but abortion is legal.

Now BOA and other banks are not using cash for money anymore. The entire financial system is falling down head over heels but we are still dependent on it because we need those dollars to survive. You can't pay you light bill with a bowl of beef stew, right? Remember back in the old days when the doctor would get paid in chickens or something else?

Now drinking or making Chamomile tea for yourself is supposed to be illegal in NZ. But yet if you get cancer, the doctor has the legal right to tell you that it's ok. you just need radiation and chemo to get thru your cancer. But in the meantime, they kill you legally with this shit. Is anyone else getting this? See how it's all just BS insanity?

People dont realize that the Same Law has been passed in Canada and the US as well.

They just havent been enforcing it yet.

DO YOUR RESEARCH
 Quoting: whiskey2012

Can you tell us which Canadian Bill is the same?
I'm guessing US Food Bill 510 is the American one.

Is it all about how you feel, OP? You won't give an inch for the greater good? I guess you would rather have overpopulation and depressed pharmacuetical stock prices so you can drink your precious tea.

I ve heard that the elite use small countries and small groups to see how they will react to certain plans.
 Quoting: bigpoppapump

True; NZ has been used as a laboratory since its earliest days.
Take a small group of islands in the middle of nowhere with no borders to any other country, with a fairly homogenous ethnic origin (WASP) with a few minor Others... and then put the rats through their paces to see what happens.

More and more people now are starting to understand my logic for moving to a place (South America) where nonsense like this has ZERO chance of being put into works....

People would be like "que?!?!? jajajajajajajaja"

Uruguay.. a place people that still want to be free need to look into relocating to asap.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10633183


Yes, it's true that people have more freedom in Latin America now than they do in the English-speaking nations.

All the recent changes in the USA have people down here scratching their heads, wondering what on earth is going on up there and why do you tolerate it. From here, it looks like your government has gone insane. And it's not just the USA; it's all the first world nations.

How are they getting you guys to go along with this?

We expected better from you. We thought you were these special people who could never be subjugated. We're very surprised to see that this is not the case.

What if you don't speak Spanish?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 10285481


You'll pick it up so fast it will surprise you. Immersion is the best way to learn a 2nd language. You would learn more Spanish in 4 months of living in Latin America than you would from taking 4 years of Spanish classes in the USA.

Also, you will have no problem finding bilingual people to help you until you've learned the language. Actually, people will be lining up to teach you Spanish in exchange for you helping them with their English.

It makes it illegal without a licence to prepare, share or administer anything (that isn’t presented as “food”) that’s made from plants, vitamins, minerals or anything else natural and may have any of the following material health benefits:-

The maintenance or promotion of health or wellness; nutritional support; vitamin or mineral supplementation; affecting or maintaining the structure or function of the body; effective treatment of any self-diagnosed or self-managed condition.

Now, go back and read that again!

You’ll be liable for a $50,000 fine for doing any of the above, even for yourself. No more home-grown camomile tea to make you sleep better. No more practising of traditional Maori medicine without a government ticket, which can be denied or revoked. No more home-made manuka oil to put on your cuts. No more using your granny’s remedies from the herb garden. None of this without permission, fees and rules, or you face massive fines and possibly jail. Sound familiar?

does this mean that i couldn't eat my beloved pasta in NZ? No Spaghetti? cause pasta is my main food and in my case it's needed to stay healthy and well oh and yes, lest i forget i think it maintains the structure of functioning of my body. do i need a license to make my own pasta?

oh i see (that isn't presented as food)...... so since when is camomile tea no food? everyhing out there which grows in nature can be/is 'food'

OP, you're just seeking attention; people should give a damn what the illuminati cooks up; don't give away your energies to these c-suckers/lawmen/politicians, their time is almost up (300 days left of their madness); they will be cleaned out like when a camomile tea cleans out a virus! LOL

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1511955


I grew up in Brazil and have Brazilian citizenship, and lately I think often of returning

You know, back in the old days of the dictatorship and wild inflation, I remember my father's publisher telling us an excellent joke about Brazilian hell

I think this joke is more true today than ever

It goes like this:

There's a deviant who dies, and immediately goes to hell, but on arriving at hell he discovers that each country has it's own regional hell

Being a Brazilian (cira 1980, they thought the US was efficient, lol) he says: "well, if I'm going to go to hell, I might as well go to the most efficient, well run hell - I'll go the American hell"

Upon arrival at Hell USA, a clean cut young mormon greets him and says:

"Welcome to hell USA! Here is our schedule:

From 12.01 am to 10 am, you will be roasted in an oven at 1000 C and you will experience the torments of the damned as the flesh roasts off your bones.

From 10.01 am to 5pm, you will be lashed without mercy by a dozen demons who will strip whatever meat is left and you will beg for mercy, but none will be given.

Then from 5.01 PM to midnight, you will be placed in a freezer colder than antarctica and you will wish you were dead, but your mind will be awake even as your body is frozen to immobility"

At that point, you are placed back in the ovens and the routine continues, so on and on, for eternity.

Any questions?

The Brazilian gulps and thinks, well maybe I'll try a less efficient hell, let me go to the Italian hell.

Well, he soon discovers that with the exception of the accent, ALL the hells are identical in cruelty and punishment

At that point he says..."If I'm going to go to hell, I might as well go the Brazilian hell and be with my own people"

However, on arriving at the gate of the Brazilian hell, he finds an enormous line to get in. "Typical Brazilian third world BS he thinks..." But then he notices there are Brits, Americans, Japanese and even Swiss deviants on line to get into the Brazilian hell

He starts poking at the man ahead of him on line: "Eh, my friend, why so many people trying to get into Brazilian hell?"

The guy ahead of him gets irritated, but finally says:

OKAY OKAY, but DON'T TELL ANYONE ELSE! It goes like this

The oven? It's been broken for 30 years, it only goes up to about 35C and the Brazilians sit inside getting a tan and playing guitar.

The dozen devils giving lashings? Well, they got a 2nd job playing football for the English hell. They just show up, sign their card, and leave. Someone smuggled in a TV so they sit around watching novelas

The guy who imported the refrigerator got the budget for a full sized unit, but only spent on a mini-cube he bought from his cousin, big enough to hold some choppes. He left for Miami years ago, hasn't been heard from, so it's a party every night

AND PLEASE don't tell anyone else about Brazilian hell, otherwise one of these days some smart ass might actually try and "fix it"..

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1349914


LOL! I think that joke could apply to a number of Latin American countries.

You are right. This is exactly the reason why tyranny is done so much better by first world countries. They oppress as efficiently as they do everything else.

I live in New Zealand and know that the subject of this thread is not correct. I drink Camomile Tea and it is sold in all shops that sell grocery items. There has been some silly law put in place about making and distributing a variety of products that are classed as health remedies. In my local organic traders shop where they sell all sorts of health remedies, there is no change to what is available. I think that it is against the law to make any specific claims regarding the ability of any natural remedy to affect a cure of any illness. That same law is in most countries that are run by big medicine and the pharmas.
