Whom do Your Elected Officials Represent…for today We the People…

This entry is part 12 of 15 in the series Whom do your elected officials represent???

This round goes to We the People

Yes We the People are witnessing Science Fiction  coming to fruition for We the People and the world via Monsanto. Seriously folks, this is  what the reality is for many We the People right now. 90% of We the People voices are not being listened to. Will our back stabbing two faced greedy disrespectful elected officials listen or will a revolution be required to wake up Washington DC? I have to wonder if our elected officials are standing in the Congressional Hall and start their day with…I Pledge Allegiance to the United States of Monsanto…. Think about it folks, no matter how they represent their constituents, said constituents  pay for their medical for the rest of their lives.

I pledge Allegiance to the United States of Monsanto…seriously that is who is paying for the direction our Congressional Representatives and Senators have taken this country? Big 6 Ag Chemical companies and their cronies The Grocery manufacturers Associations.

The foregoing was written prior to yesterday’s action in the Senate.

This week thousands of We the People took time out of their busy days to call their Senators to demand that they vote against the DARK Act, a bill sponsored by Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts, which would prevent consumers from knowing if the food they eat and feed their families contains genetically engineered (GMO) ingredients. Their support for GMO labeling was echoed by more than 600 organizations, including farming and fishing groups and food companies, representing tens of millions of members and customers who this week also urged the Senate to reject this troubling bill. GMO crops are created by transferring genetic material from one organism into another to create specific traits, such as resistance to chemicals or insects…

Here are some reasons why we need food labeling…PROPER food labeling.

  1. GMOs are in our food. Food is the number one factor of the condition of our health
  2. There are more than 1,000 studies and papers regarding harm from GMOs and related pesticides.
  3. Eightypercent of GMOs are engineered to withstand toxic pesticides and herbicides
  4. The technology of GMO foreign proteins is recognized by world renowned scientists to be unpredictable, uncontrollable and have unforeseeable effects.
  5. New research shows that GMO crops, with heavy herbicide use, destroy the microbiome of the soil, reduce the nutritional content of the food
  6. GMOs and related pesticides have been wrongly classified a process, not an additive, to intentionally get around the requirement that additives are safety tested and labeled on the package.
  7. Religious sanctifications include that followers know if they are eating certain animals and avoid them.

While I do support proper food labeling I also believe we need a uniform labeling “law” “policy” or what ever the sam hell anyone wants to call it. I do not think that every state having a law would be conducive to the economic issue as that would  create nightmarish circumstances. So why when 90 plus percent of the country wants something are We the People paying the people we hire to create and pass legislation we demand DEBATING AND PASSING LEGISLATION We the People don’t want??? Simple when you think about it, PECUNIARY GREED.

Follow the Money

Since 1999, the fifty largest agricultural and food patent-holding companies and two of the largest biotech and agrochemical trade associations have spent more than U.S. $572 million in campaign contributions and lobbying expenditures, much of it to create a favorable political context to allow GMOs to proliferate. The Grocery Manufacturers Association, which represents food companies like Kraft and Pepsi, has spent millions of dollars lobbying in favor of the DARK Act too. Washington’s Attorney General recently accused the Grocery Manufacturers Association of maintaining an “egregious” plot to conceal the identity of the corporate donors behind its $11 million campaign to defeat that state’s 2013 food-labeling initiative.

A Farmer wishing to remain anonymous…

He has concerns about the practice. “I think farmers need to realize that all of the chemicals we use are ‘bad’ to some extent,” he said. “Monsanto has done such an effective job marketing glyphosate as ‘safe’ and ‘biodegradable’ that farmers here still believe this even though such claims are false.”

Glyphosate Used to Speed Up Wheat Harvest

Charles Benbrook, Ph.D., who published the paper on the mounting use of glyphosate, says the practice of spraying glyphosate on wheat prior to harvest, known as desiccating, began in Scotland in the 1980s.

“Farmers there often had trouble getting wheat and barley to dry evenly so they can start harvesting. So they came up with the idea to kill the crop (with glyphosate) one to two weeks before harvest to accelerate the drying down of the grain,” he said.

….GMO crops are created by transferring genetic material from one organism into another to create specific traits, such as resistance to treatment with herbicides or to make a plant produce its own pesticide to repel insects. Unlike traditional plant and animal breeding, which tries to develop better varieties by selecting traits from the same species, genetic engineering techniques can insert specific genes from any plant, animal or microorganism into the DNA of a different species…..

This means people like the astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, or Penn Jillette that make the claim cross pollinating or grafting is the same thing as taking DNA from a fish and placing it in a tomato…well I’m sorry but for a rocket scientist to say something like that he either has no understanding of Biology, is paid under the table by Monsanto or he is lying, not sure which but you can take your pick, in the case of Penn Jillette, well he is an entertainer and comedian so we may be able to excuse his daftness. However,IMHO, this all part of Monsanto’s Propaganda Machine.

From Donald Lewis’ “Learned by the Fence Post”

I changed to Organic farming IN 1953. Won the 1958 New England Green Pastures Contest over hundreds of Chemical Farmers. I now live in Goode, VA and have a very successful Organic garden with soil tests that are perfect in all elements. Nitrogen is 123 lbs/per/acre from the 78% in the atmosphere. Never any chemicals used and out produce all chemical gardeners. Wrote the book as how it can be done..

Donald’s book can be found here

France Sweden Italy Netherlands have said no to the unlabeled GMO products coming into their respective Countries. In addition there are over 60 counties worldwide that demand proper food labeling with an emphasis on the GMO front.

Yesterday we saw our Senate actually represent their constituents wishes. Our Government in action if you will. For three hours after the vote yesterday I received emails from everywhere like this…

breaking: the Great Monsanto Bailout crushed 48 to 49

The DARK Act: You Slayed It—For Now!

Breaking: Monsanto’s Dream Bill Stopped!

To all that follow the blog and my radio spot…you will get a mention this morning as  this will be most of my segment. And the USSC nominee…I’m not sure which ass came up with SCOTUS but it is The United States Supreme Court. But the media nut that came up with that acronym should be taken out and spanked for his/her bad grammar. Every good student knows it is The United States Supreme Court…Not Supreme Court of…

And again I ask…

WHOM DO YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS REPRESENT???

In closing today my proposal for food labeling…I don’t believe that we need 50 different laws from all 50 states. We need a uniform law across the board.

Even Bill Nye the Science Guy states that testing should be done on a case by case basis and that we should be labeling out foods….

So how about this???

Label the food properly. Campbell’s has already started doing so. They blew the argument that Monsanto and Cronies gave right out off the water. Get rid of the gibberish…High Fructose Corn Syrup is not from corn tell us what it is.

Put what is in the container on the label the second issue…If you spray with glyphosate two weeks prior to harvesting we need to know. Anyone ever wonder why we did not have a Wheat Gluten problem as kids??? not sure but dollars to donuts folks….The “process” to circumvent the herbicide issue…as it is classified as of spraying glypgosate two weeks prior to harvest to get the wheat to dry????

You’ve poisoned the wheat, it is dying not drying. You have removed all the metal trace elements from the wheat that will become a food product. TELL us…and as We the People we should demand this be labeled properly and not be classified as a process…

If soy lecithin is in a product there is a 98% chance it a GMO soy used as that is how much SOY IS GMO produced…and make no mistake this is in damn near everything…your Twinkies almost every packaged food has this ingredient.

So now we need to start calling every company we purchase food from and demand they properly label their food. perhaps the consumers of American need to step up and boycott one product every month to get the message across….if we do not purchase Wonder Bread for one month how long do you think it take them to pay attention as the bread molds on the grocery shelf??? hey perhaps the consumers can force the day old bread sales of 5 loafs for a dollar like we used to see when we were kids…just some food for thought as I drink my Sumatra Mandehling this morning….

So which is your elected Official??? Stupid or a liar???

I believe I’ll trust the Geneticist over the Astrophysicist…how about you????

 

 

Until Next Time
