I laughed out loud when I saw this one. Protesters dropped approximately 2,000 dollars as the Senate prepared for a procedural vote on a bill that would mandate companies disclose GMOs in their products. Alexis Baden-Mayer, founder of "Occupy Monsanto" and Adam Eidinger and a third person were escorted out by Security.

“When Congress moves to crush the will of nine out of 10 Americans because they need companies like Monsanto to fund their campaigns, you know our democracy is in real trouble," Bayden-Mayer said in a statement released before the incident. "The corporate lobbyists are totally corrupt." - See more at: www.rollcall.com...

Surprised they didn't scramble for the money.

Shut up and eat it!

2 grand isn't enough to even get a senator to bend over and pick the $ up. Money isn't enough silly's, you need to promise seats on boards after the senators terms are up and jam huge $ into their reelection coffers.

This is hands down one of the biggest issues that people should be paying attention to.

Good on these protestors for pointing out the hypocrisy of these scumbag senators selling out the people of this country and allowing Monsatan to continue poisoning us and our land.

It is remarkable how deceitful these people can be, put the damn label on the food, it is that simple, what are they afraid of!?

Yep. Selling out We The People seems to be a function of Congress nowadays. I remember back in 2003 when this horrendous act of treason against the American people was committed on the House floor in re the vote for Medicare Part D.

Of course, not many citizens at the time seemed to notice or care. They had been electing good Christians to Congress to keep America a Christian nation, trusted them to fight against abortion and gays, plus they had to cheer the troops in Afghanistan and, by then, Iraq. Being patriotic and God-fearing was the only thing on their minds at the time.... oh, and also all the tax cuts they would get from Pres Bush.

And so it was that people didn't care that this happened---


The political process used to pass Part D was the worst abuse of the legislative process I have seen during my 20 years in Congress. In the months before its passage, a few powerful Republican leaders worked to undermine conscientious reform proposals. In early 2003, while the House bill was being drafted, Democrats and Republicans authored 59 sensible amendments to it. At the behest of the Republican leadership, however, the House Committee on Rules rejected all but one, preventing them from being debated by Congress. Many of those amendments — among them, one requiring the administration to use beneficiaries' collective purchasing power to negotiate lower prices and one allowing Americans to import cheaper drugs from Canada — would have made the legislation far more effective and probably would have received bipartisan support, had they been allowed onto the floor.

Next, the conference process, whereby the House and Senate versions of legislation are reconciled, was fundamentally corrupted and kept almost entirely secret by senior Republicans. Democrats on the conference committee were excluded from deliberations, to the point of being physically barred from the conference room on one occasion. The pharmaceutical industry, however, was invited in.



When the conference report was brought to the House for a vote, members were given less than one day to read the 850-page bill, a violation of House rules. When the vote was called at almost 3 a.m., voting Democrats stood unanimously with 22 Republicans in opposing the legislation. Had the vote been gaveled down in the customary 15 minutes, the bill would not have passed. So the Republican leadership held the vote open for a record three hours while attempting to change the outcome — through intimidation and other tactics that, again, violated House rules. Finding itself with a narrow lead at 5:53 a.m., the Republican leadership immediately brought the vote to a close.

Many abuses undoubtedly took place that night. Representative Nick Smith (R-Mich.) later revealed what may have been the worst: that former Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-Tex.) and Representative Candice Miller (R-Mich.) tried to bribe him with political favors to change his vote — an infraction for which the House Ethics Committee later admonished them.


and here's where some of these participants in the treason went

GET MONEY OUT OF CONGRESS and CAMPAIGNS and SHUT THE REVOLVING DOOR

You forget that Monsanto™ is just 1 tentacle of a larger beast. Monsanto™ poisons You and then their illegitimate cousin, BigPHarma™ then $ell$ You a "cure".. Then both groups play 'grabass' at The Bohemian Grove to plot the next year's doom.

BigPHarma Turd: "We now have the cure for 'Baxter's Syndrome'; this should be a real big $eller for Us..."

Monsanto Turd: "But what is 'Baxter's Syndrome?"

BigPHarma Turd: "Well "Baxter" is My pet Labrador and thought it would be cute to have a disease named after Him..."

Monsanto Turd: "Okay, let Me call our laboratory and start to make that dis-ease... Anything special You want the sufferer to suffer? Itchy balls, watery eyes, headaches?? Why don't We have it activate when they mix it with Fluoride from the water supply??"

BigPHarma Turd: "Thats a great idea, I'm as evil as the day is looong and really love profits on other's misfortunes, but even I couldn't think of something as sinister as that..."

Monsanto Turd: "This way they can't blame Us when everyone starts to die.. We will have pocketed $30-$40 Million before that.. Plus if We get caught We'll just get a bonus and some hush money.. Win/Win.."

BigPHarma Turd: "Could You pass the Venison and pour Me some more Merlot...?"

You just summed up a very disturbing reality that exists within the upper echelon of these psychopaths and the levels of deceit they engage in.

Add in that whole depopulation nonsense they spout off about and it is no wonder that we see the myriad of health crises plaguing the guinea pigs called Americans.
