Had Mark Twain lived today, he would have added "food" to the list of things threatened when Congress is in session! Today, however, thanks to each and everyone of you, to the vast displeasure of Big Biotech (you know, the people who have brought you unlabeled GMO corn, soy, canola, wheat, papayas, cotton, etc., etcl., and are pressing hard to bring you equally unlabeled GMO salmon) and Big Chema (the folks who make the chemicals which pollute the earth and our food and disrupt our hormones) we, you and I, kept them from getting what they want: a totally industrialized, GMO's, tainted and totally controlled US food supply.
"NO!" we roared, in our hundreds of thousands.
NO! We will NOT allow you, in your pride and madness, to take away our food freedom, our choice and, with it, our health
"YES!" we roared, in our hundreds of thousands.
YES! We ARE free men and women making our own decisions about what goes into our bodies.
When the US Senate and House adjourned today they left behind a mountain of unfinished business, unpassed special interest bills. One of the bits of unfinished business is S. 510 and another is S. 3767. Last week, according to S. 510 sponsor Durbin, the bill was pulled off the calendar because "it would have taken nearly a week to pass the legislative obstacles." So? There was plenty of time to shepherd it through those obstacles. No, what he was actually saying, in Politispeak, was that we, you and I, have been so effective in our opposition that the Senate did not dare to pass that bill, not with elections coming up which could do so much damage to both parties!
Another bit of unfinished business, by the way, is unlabeled GMO salmon approved as if it were safe to eat (although it has never been tested) or safe for the environment (although it is quite certain that these super-growth fish will doom natural salmon if they escape into the wild, which they are certain to do). Even the Congress of the United States condemned the FDA's approval of this monstrosity Read more here: http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=6871
What now? Now we press hard, further and deeper than we have before. When the Senate comes back after the midterm elections, whoever wins will find that they have no smooth sailing on these food freedom issues. Over the interim recess, we WILL pound the US Senate harder than we have already done. You KNOW that when it returns, the Senate leadership will push these bills forward in an effort to make the lame duck session of Congress not only lame but lethal.
We could back off of our effort and give them ultimate victory. Somehow, I do not think that is what we will do. You know the drill: Take the Action Items above and help motivate every single person you can reach. Then, please, join the
