No on Prop. 37: Voters Reject Proposition 37 (CA GMO Labeling)


inance.yahoo.com

"California voters clearly saw through Prop. 37 and rejected higher food costs, more lawsuits and more bureaucracy," said Henry I. Miller, M.D., a fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution and the founding director of the FDA's Office of Biotechnology (1989-1993). "Food labeling policy should be based on logic and science, not fear. Leading scientific organizations have all agreed that foods containing genetically engineered ingredients are safe and are not materially different from their traditional counterparts. We're glad the voters rejected this misleading, costly and unnece

Well Apparently the sheeple think that having cheaper crappy food is more important then not getting cancer and tumors and digestive disorder... Sigh!

This is why voting is so futile the Sheep are too easiily influenced by propaganda.

Hey there Mr/Ms. sheeple did you know Genetically modified foods cause cancer and tumors and digestive problems costing far more in health care costs then it would to label them? Also they are destroying the environment that will lead to catastrophic failure in the food supply?

Sheep: Yeah I heard that but the TV told me its not true and besides its more important to continue to have cheap crap that is only marginally food if even that to buy at the grocery store then to do any real research on it... Sigh!


Paid for by No on 37: Coalition Against the Deceptive Food Labeling Scheme, sponsored by Farmers, Food Producers, and Grocers. Major funding by Monsanto Company, E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Co., Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) and more than 40 food company members.


"MAJOR FUNDING BY MONSANTO" Well there you have it the sheeple will even fight against their own best interests because they are too stupid to do the research and find out for themselves and succumb to Monsanto's billion dollar propaganda campaign with all their bought and paid for scientist and fake associations while this evil leviathan continues to rape pillage and plunder the planet and the people!

At least the farmers of India have the balls to fight back. What they did to India is our future if the zombies do not wake up...

It may have helped if the yes on 37 campaign spent like, any money on it.

Monsanto had guys in white suits telling lies on the TV. That is definitely enough for a win for them.

No one is more picky about food than me. I voted against it because it was an invitation for law suits against farmers. Poor legislation should be voted down. I don't want to subsidize greedy lawyers. I take responsibility by growing as much of what I eat as possible.

Food is already too expensive for many families.

They dont grow them very smart in California, do they?
I cant understand the mindset of some people to not think its a good idea for this.. I mean, its a label, that gives information about what your eating.
Dont get it.


I hope something like this comes up in Texas, I can pretty much guarantee that it would be passed,.

It's amazing what a 40 million dollar ad campaign funded by ag/chem giants can do to people's minds.

I personally think this proposition was more important than any other single vote that took place yesterday. What the people should've asked is this: "will labeling the food really cost more than 40 million dollars, because if not, you assholes should have just labelled the food instead of spending the 40 mil on fighting against the labels!"

sad. consumers have the right to know what is in their food.

Yeah I guess avoiding law suites against farmers growing this GMO crap is more important then not poisoning people and the environment... Sigh! Indian Farmers have it right they burn the fields of any farmer who grows this crap!

It got turned down? It was openly funded by Monsanto and got turned down??

Now US citizens have to learn a lesson from sleazy politicians, and keep re-introducing the bill back before the house, again and again, as many times as it takes to implement it. Reword it as needed, and put into any package you need as long as you can slip it into effect. Then start on nanotech watchdog bills : over twenty majour companies are releasing it into skin and hair-care products, including deodorant and body wash. It's basically unregulated, and the FDA "doesn't know" how to police the problem.

It would not just be farmers growing this crap. Ever heard of wind blowing seeds or birds carrying them? The problem is so many of you are ignorant of the reality of what is happening to farmers who are just trying to make an honest living. This would hit them way harder than the evil Monsanto.

No one hates GMO's more than me. This legislation would have created more problems than it would fix.

Just found this. Is it morally appropriate to circumvent the process when we know the process is flawed?

The 40 million dollars was a drop in the bucket compared to the losses in sales that would have taken place if people could actually know what they were eating. People would not choose GM foods once they knew what it was.

But we useless feeders need to NOT be informed. We need to continue to consume mass quantities of damaging and poisonous foods presented to us by the supporters of the NO vote. We need to be compliant. Never mind that the rest of the world has objected to and mostly rejected these foods. Never mind that they were passed by political and corrupt means into our food supply. Never mind that they are now contaminating the non-GM crops forever. Never mind that independent research, what little there is, is showing that there are profound and deadly consequences of consuming them....

Just close your eyes and go quietly into the Great Lab Experiment as eager guinea pigs.

There was funding for the Proposition. But it came from individuals and small groups, not from Big Agro or big corporations. One of the largest contributors was Dr. Mercola, who donated $1,000,000. They attacked him personally in the anti-prop 37 ads.

Follow the money. Why do you suppose these people were so frightened about this passing, really?

It's easy to say "I want". It's harder to make it happen, especially when our state is in such dire straits as it is. The farmers do not need to be burdened with additional costs and responsibilities just because the "I wants" are screaming. It's a good idea, just not right for California to bear the burden right now with all of our other problems. As a state, we have to watch out for ourselves too.

HOW THE FU*! DID THIS NOT PASS??????????

America, the number 1 country with cancer and diabetes rates and conscumer of GMO foods, which Europe, and many other smart countries have rejected.

I'm truly astonished and ashamed of any person who voted No!!!!
Sick to my stomach at this

And your excuse for not pressing a few buttons and executing a simple search here or on any number of internet search engines resulting in loads of evidence? But nice try at trying to derail the thread and take it off topic...
