Due to the unhealthful, dangerous nature of sugary drinks, state lawmakers in California have moved closer to putting warning labels on all soft drinks. According to Reuters, the state Senate passed the bill recently and it’s now onto the Assembly, where it will face opposition from the beverage industry who insists these sugary, high-calorie drinks are harmless.

California led the way in 2005, banning sodas and junk food from public schools. Now, they are looking to take it further, potentially helping adults kick the sugary beverage habit, something health experts say is directly tied to the obesity epidemic.

The bill would put warning labels on soft drinks, advising consumers that such drinks can contribute to obesity, diabetes, and tooth decay risks.

“Liquid sugar is a significant and unique driver of obesity, preventable diabetes, and tooth decay,” said the bill’s author, Democratic state senator Bill Monning.”Some people accuse this (bill) of nanny governing and yet it is the government that’s responsible to protect the public health and safety of its people.”

Video: UFO Sightings Across California – New Years Eve

Anthony Morrison: It still baffles me, how no one in the media will admit what the “glowing lights” really are. They’ve been witnessed for decades and the truth is easy to find. Come on media,  help educate people to accept the truth of our Galactic brothers and sisters NOW!

SACRAMENTO – From Placer County to the Hollywood Hills, people reported seeing mysterious lights in the sky on New Year’s Eve.

Terry and Hans Mauth of Auburn said they watched a large egg-shaped object with a bright light shining upward drift over their neighborhood, then suddenly accelerate.

“There was no sound, that’s the funny thing,” Terry said.  ”Just this big illuminated form.” Continue reading

California OKs Funding for High-Speed Rail Line

The California state Assembly approved an $8 billion high-speed rail financing plan that likely will face a tougher vote in the Senate over the system's projected $68 billion cost and concerns about its management.

Note from Wes: This is great news and is a clear sign as to the future we are heading to. Remember the amazing technology the Galactics have been speaking of, that will utilize clean energy for much faster and more productive travel? As with many other important issues, California is leading the way in bringing this forth. 

Barack Obama has been pushing for clean energy and clean energy-based technologies for a long time and as with many other things, he has been silenced and kept from enacting such change but clearly, events are no longer working in favor of the cabals. You will notice that both Democrats and Republicans came out strongly against this project, likely because it is a step away from the agendas of their employers.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California lawmakers approved billions of dollars Friday in construction financing for the initial segment of the nation’s first dedicated high-speed rail line connecting Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The move marked a major political victory for Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown and the Obama administration. Both have promoted bullet trains as job generators and clean transportation alternatives.

“No economy can grow faster than its transportation network allows,” U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said in a statement applauding the legislative vote. “With highways between California cities congested and airspace at a premium, Californians desperately need an alternative.” Continue reading
