The following is a Public Service Announcement from the “Citizens for the Preservation of Traditional Society and the Cultivation of American Thinking (CPTS/CAT)”. This public health bulletin is meant to protect you from the dangers of which you may or may not be aware. This information is real and must not be disregarded.
Pickles will kill you! Every pickle you eat brings you nearer to death. Amazingly, “the thinking man” has failed to grasp the terrifying significance of the term “in a pickle”. Although leading horticulturists have long known cuccumis sativius possesses indehiscent pulp, the pickle industry continues to expand.
Pickles are associated with all the major diseases of the body. Eating them breeds wars. They can be related to most airline tragedies. Auto accidents are caused by pickles. There exists a positive relationship between crime waves and consumption of this fruit of the curcubit family.
Don’t believe this? Let the statistics bare witness:
Nearly all sick people have eaten pickles. The effects are obviously cumulative.
99.9% of all Southern Californians who die from cancer have eaten pickles.
97.3% of all soldiers have eaten pickles.
96.8% of all Southern California college students have eaten pickles.
99.7% of the people involved in air and auto accidents ate pickles within 14 days preceding the accident.
93.1% of juvenile delinquents come from homes where pickles are served frequently.
Still not a believer of the dangers of pickles? The proof is overwhelming! How can you argue what is obviously true?

The good news is ...
All over the country people are fighting hate. Standing up to hate mongers. Promoting tolerance and inclusion. More often than not, when hate flares up, good erupts, too.
This guide sets out 10 principles for fighting hate to push it out of our communities. Experience shows that one person, acting from conscience and love, can neutralize bigotry. A group of people can create a moral barrier to hate. Here’s how you can make a difference:
1. ACT: Do something. In the face of hatred, apathy will be interpreted as acceptance — by the haters, the public and, worse, the victim. Decency must be exercised, too. If it isn't, hate invariably persists.
2. UNITE: Your instinct for tolerance is shared by others. There is power in numbers in the fight against hate. Asking for help and organizing a group reduces personal fear and vulnerability, spreads the workload and increases creativity and impact.
3. SUPPORT VICTIMS: Hate-crime victims are especially vulnerable, fearful and alone. Let them know you care. Surround them with people they feel comfortable with. If you're a victim, report every incident and ask for help. Victims of hate crimes have been attacked for being who they are, and silence amplifies their isolation. They need a strong, quick message that they are valued.
4. DO YOUR HOMEWORK: Know who and what your are fighting. Eruptions of hate generally produce one of two reactions: apathy ("it's just an isolated act of kooks") or fear ("the world is out of control"). Before reacting, communities need accurate information about haters and their danger.
5. CREATE AN ALTERNATIVE: Hate has a First Amendment right. Courts have routinely upheld the constitutional right of the Ku Klux Klan and other hate groups to hold rallies and say what they want (provided it does not incite violence). You can find another outlet for anger and frustration and people's desire to do something. Communities can restrict group movements to avoid conflicts with other citizens, but hate rallies will continue. Your efforts should focus on channeling people away from rallies.
6. SPEAK UP: You, too, have First Amendment rights. Hate must be exposed and denounced. An informed community is the best defense against hate.
7. LOBBY LEADERS: Persuade political, business and community leaders to take a stand against hate. Early action creates a positive reputation for the community, while unanswered hate will eventually be bad for business. The fight against hate needs community leaders willing to take a stand.
8. LOOK LONG RANGE: The best barrier to hate is a tolerant community. A small group of committed people can build a moral barrier to hate or at least create an atmosphere in which hate outbreaks are rare.
9. TEACH TOLERANCE: Bias is learned in childhood. By the age of three, children are aware of racial differences and may have the perception that society sees "white" is desirable. By the age of 12, they hold stereotypes about numerous ethnic, racial and religious groups, according to the Leadership Conference Education Fund. Because stereotypes underlie hate, and almost half of all hate crimes are committed by young men under 20, tolerance education is critical.
10. DIG DEEPER:Peeling away the face of hate reveals a country with deep, systemic and unresolved prejudice, discrimination and inter-group tension. Look into issues that divide us: economic inequality, immigration, religion, race, etc. Look inside yourself for prejudices and stereotypes. Change starts from within. GO OUT AND MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE!
