HOW DASTARDLY IS MONSANTO?
Temecula, CA – Fighting the war on food and against GMOs, you tend to see how small the big is.You tend to think that’s it’s us versus them. In reality it’s more like what you see in Thank You For Smoking. With that thought in mind today’s news article takes a look at the most unknowing casualty and it’s not your kids or unborn generations we speak of here as we examine just how dastardly Monsanto really is.
A bill has been introduced that would ban a state's effort to craft any meaningful GMO labeling in Washington DC. Allowing GMOs to be called ‘natural’ is to counterfeit nature, a left-handed slap to God as creator of all. But when you own Congress enough to control its direction, have the ‘ins’ on the Supreme Court, and are in a tie with Scrooge McDuck for wealth, you have money bin size balls.
However, it would seem that the Label GMO folks might get the last laugh here. Recently the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA), who along with Monsanto and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) is suing the state of Vermont to overturn its GMO labeling law, served up ice cream and root beer floats to members of Congress. It was all part of the IDFA’s 32nd annual Capitol Hill Ice Cream Party, carried out with help from IDFA and GMA members like Dean Foods, Nestle USA, Unilever, J.M. Smucker Co. and more.
Knowing the caliber of people involved many must wonder how our ‘leaders’ can be so in bed with Monsanto, the answer is simple and can be spotted in members in Congress. These 'fat' people are taken care of by the system that sees nothing wrong in digesting HFCS, laden in sweets and junk food because they like it. I can relate. I liked it too, even though I knew it wasn't good for you. What I didn’t know was that it is BAD for you, which is quite different. John Diaz and fighting for GMO labeling in the trenches, along with meeting the cause leaders, radicalized me into seeing the difference. Then I saw the difference in my body along with feeling the difference, and at my age. I was convinced.
It is little consolation in the hearts of good folk whose primary motive is child care in direct opposition to many labeled Health and Safety, that the opposition is also being fed the fake food and suffers the same fate as those who are unaware. They are not in the fight for gain. Unfortunately, as I pen these words forces more dominant than food are about to erupt that will take our minds off topic.
