But the same folks don’t have a problem using food for fuel.

Obviously they’ve been drinking the GM kool aid for years already.

Why Do G .M.O.’s Need Protection?

… Monsanto.....or at least its friends, recently managed to have an outrageous rider slipped into the 587-page funding bill Congress sent to President Obama.

The rider essentially prohibits the Department of Agriculture from stopping production of any genetically engineered crop once it’s in the ground, even if there is evidence that it is harmful.

That’s a pre-emptive Congressional override of the judicial system, since it is the courts that are most likely to ask the U.S.D.A. to halt planting or harvest of a particular crop.

What does the nobility (Husseins, etc.) care? Apparently, when they’re not shoveling junk food into their troughs, they have their slaves prepare only organic food.

Amazing how the left has demonized Monsanto. There are scores, probably hundreds, of companies developing GM seeds around the world. Demonizing just one of them is classic Alinskyism in action.

I would have hoped that most people here would know better.

They would rather let Africans and Asians starve then modify food. Sometimes I wonder if starvation isn't the real left wing agenda.

The same people favor the biggest federal government possible ... without which Monsanto, ADM and others would not exist because they get so many subsidies and favored tax status, exclusions from lawsuits, etc.

Monsanto has bought worldwide influence to prevent anyone from questioning them in a legal forum.

If they are so proud of their gmo crops, why are they afraid to label it in stores?

Let everyone who wants to eat gmo crops do so knowingly. Let everyone who wants to avoid eating gmo crops have the knowledge to do so. Seems fair.

Around here, an Amish farmer threw some gmo corn out by the edge of the woods and even the dear won’t eat it... If they don’t want it, I sure don’t.

Corporate owned and manufactured food supply is a bad thing. The primary source of our physical health is nutrition which must be supplied through food.

I am very uncomfortable allowing increased centralization and control of food supplies by uber-corporations.

Food supplies like politics is best controlled at the local level.

I didn’t see any mention of the fact that the TeaParty was the original backer of this anti-Monsanto demonstration. I heard this because the local left, which has been opposing GMO foods for a long time, backed out of the local event when they found out that it was connected to the TeaParty.

It’s easy to demonstrate against GMO foods when you’re a low information luddite who has never been hungry a day in your life or watched family members die of starvation.

Hundreds passed us yesterday. The sad thing about it, is all of the very young children marching and chanting. Just shook my head...

As it was, we were at a Corvette Car Show and they came by chanting "No More GTO's".

We have three branches of government:

Executive - the President
Legislative - the Congress
Judicial - the Courts

It is CLEARLY unconstitutional for Congress to pass legislation that takes away the power of the Courts. Even if you have no problem with GMO products whatsoever, the corporate merger between Monsanto and Federal Goverment should concern you.

Whole Foods says there is growing demand for products that don't use GMOs, with sales of products with a "Non-GMO" verification label spiking between 15 percent and 30 percent.

I don't work for them, nor know anyone who does - but Safeway has an amazing organic line out. Most of it is specifically labelled as non-GMO. They basically have a non-GMO product to match every kind of Franken-food. And, the prices are great, plus lots of coupons.

I've tried some other supermarket organic brands (for instance, cereal) and they tasted like cardboard. Not Safeway's...

The hypocrisy of those on the left never fail to disappoint. Apparently if you don’t accept the theory of global warming then you are a backwards hick who doesn’t embrace science. It’s perfectly acceptable, however, to discredit the science that deems GMO food to be safe

Control the means of food production and you control the people.

Many people currently have problems with the food source because of genetic modification accomplished through hybridization. Wheat has been modified to contain more protein, gluten. The potentially fatal ciliac syndrome is activated by gluten. And many people have a less serious but still debilitating gluten intolerance.
This is just one example I know of. I don’t want to wait to find out what GM food can do to us.

Monsanto is not my/our friend. We should have the right to know what is in our food, where it came from, and whether it was genetically modified. Monsanto and Obama and the legislators it owns in both Parties do not want the public to have their food labeled and identified so that consumers are informed and with an open and free market.

I support the protesters. This country needs more protest and less acquiescence.
