i just saved a bunch of worthless money by switching to GEICO
4 yrs ago Obama promised to "immediately" require GMO food labelling, if elected. His 4 year term is almost done and he hasn't even tried. In fact,
Obama signed a huge Food Safety bill (HR2751) and it his promise was apparently forgotten altogether.
Today, an estimated 80% of processed foods contain GMOs. Americans have been demanding GMO labelling for over 20 years, and Obama lied to us all. FDA
required 800,000 signatures to get y Monsanto GE monopoly food giant, gave the concerned American a huge slap in the face and nasty bureaucratic red
oh look, ATS's newest RECAP covers it! the FDA's Deletion of some 10,000,000 signatures, reducing the # of recognized down to a measly 300,000 - in
order to BLOCK the GMO Labelling act from going on the Ballot. Of course, Monsanto is behind that move, who else would be

What I don't get is that most people know politicians to be corrupt liars and yet still vote for them anyway. I don't get it. Trying the same thing
expecting different results. Yet when confronted about corruption people will label anyone whom speaks the truth to be a conspiracy theorist. That
last liar was no good this time around we better put this better liar in position to screw us over, maybe we will get ahead of the game this time.
It's not as if the big picture would change with Romney or McCain is it.... yes I was hoping for GMO Labelling but apparently we have to get it
directly onto state ballots for it to have a shot at getting passed anyway.
Of more immediate interest is another piece of bipartisan supported legislation coming up...
H.R. 3523, a piece of legislation dubbed the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (or CISPA for short) has vague definitions that could allow
Congress to circumvent existing exemptions to online privacy laws and essentially monitor, censor and stop any online communication that it considers
disruptive to the government or private parties.
