Obama signs 'Monsanto Protection Act' written by Monsanto-sponsored senator

This Act is damaging to global agriculture. Once GM seeds overspread the environment, all non-GM crops will suffer from cross-contamination. Any seeds in contact with GM pollen will be affected. International seed purchases from US seed will contain GM material, thus impacting the global food supply. The safety of foods containing GM material is uncertain. In Britain, a recent study showed that 93% of newborns' blood contained traces of GM toxin. Thus I am very concerned about the passage of this act.

I can't find any other articles on this elsewhere on the web apart from dodgy conspiracy websites

Horrible decision! This is poisoning everyone in the U.S. No other country uses GMO's. What a Douche Bag!!

forprogress.org speaks of"leftists&quo t;...usually this refers to the party that has compassion for family, community, and the people of the State. In the United States of America there are two main parties, both financed by the Bankers, and both supporting the arrest of 1 in 5 Americans who now sit behind bars in the prisons of America as the feeble economic system of juggeling and bluffing continues to fail.
There are no"left wing" parties in America save a scattering of socialists whose intentions are unable to give the political clout to serve the people.

If I were Monsanto, I would divest from Fox news and put all my money in the anti-GMO movement. They clearly won't hold Monsanto's friends in Congress accountable. If Congress screws them, they turn on Obama. Win, win for Monsanto. You could not have a movement undermine itself more than this. Heaven save us from politically incompetent Leftists.

Obama has passed more regulations than any President since LBJ. LBJ does not deserve credit for that because his political trajectory was not moving in that direction until Kennedy was assassinated. So what do Leftists do? Instead of articles listing who voted the wrong way, instead of mobilizations against them, we focus on Obama choosing not to side with a movement that does not even know the basics of legislative engagement.

By this logic Congress is not responsible for the Public Option being stripped from Obama's original proposal. Neither is the movement that failed to organize sufficient support for it. Nothing helps the plutocracy more that this failure to hold Legislators accountable for what they do wrong.

Of course Obama is not going to veto the Agriculture Appropriations bill. It is the responsibility of the anti-GMO movement to fight the amendment battle. Let me get this strait, this movement does not know who voted against them, has not punished the Reps who voted wrong, and that is Obama's fault?!?

He is not the first to be sold out and most definitely not the last, Monsanto has a very sketchy track record when it comes to acquiring politicians to do their dirty work. their motto is control the food and you control the people. well, what happens when we're all dead.

The American Govt. and Montsanto are very cosy. Shame on you Obama.

I thought the constitution set us up with a three section government for checks and balances. How can the legislative branch tell the judicial that they can't go after these criminals? Oh I forgot we are losing our constitutional rights because of this dicktater.

If lame Obama signed Monstanto's chemical bill etc, Pres. Obomomo should eat it too, when he goes to jail for killed people! (Drones, Wars...)

Obummer is a bummer..

 

MonsantoGoingDown 25.09.2013 03:03

When Obama signed the bill, he never mentioned the Monsanto rider buried within it. Think he was trying so pull a fast one on the American people? Not Hussein Obama!

Disgusting

I have known about this for awhile and feel an urgency for americans to pull their heads out of the sand and quit accepting what they get fed from mainstream media.
