Obama gives Monsanto carte blanche


Don't forget that just a couple of months ago, President Obama signed HR 933 into law and officially gave Monsanto the right to poison your food without ever having to fear legal action.
Hidden in the text of the Farmer Assurance Provision of HR 933, you can find a biotech rider that gives Monsanto the freedom to contaminate any farm in the United States without any type of legal accountability.
Heather Callaghan over at Activist Post spelled out the whole evil agenda perfectly. In regards to what has been called "The Monsanto Protection Act," Callaghan writes:
The USDA already gives biotech companies like Monsanto the thumbs up, trusting Monsanto's own safety evaluations. Now the court system cannot intervene, which could prove detrimental to farmers who are sued by Monsanto for patent infringement when their GM seeds contaminate those farmers' fields.
As pointed out in a recent piece in the International Business Times, this sets a precedent that suggests court challenges are now a privilege, not a right.
I don't care which side of the aisle you call home — there is a very real and very dangerous connection between the Obama administration and Monsanto.
I'd even go as far to say that it is a treasonous one as it puts our health, our safety, and our economy at risk.
President Obama has kicked and screamed about coal-fired power plant pollution, but has turned a blind eye to the highly unethical and very serious pollution of our food supply.
As far as I'm concerned, this is a bigger scandal than Benghazi, and should be treated as such.
Live honorably, live free...

Hi Tap, Just a mention that on Rumor Mill News, it said China had burnt shiploads of GMO seeds.
Have they made a connection with GMO crops and the bees being poisoned.
Since China produces most CO2 gas, does this have an effect on the bees.
Would be interested to know if bees in china are in good health.
