But god help us all if this is true and if it does go through.
I did a search of monsanto protection act and found nothing.
How much is too much?
I know we've already passed or even perhaps bypassed "too much".
But too much for the large majority of people, how much is too much for that very large group?
If approved, the Monsanto Protection Act would force the USDA to allow continued planting of any GMO crop under court review, essentially giving
backdoor approval for any new genetically engineered crops that could be potentially harmful to human health or the environment.
This is INSANE!
No labelling and then this?
How much of a horrific combination can occur?
Isn't this the worst it can possibly get symptoms aside?

I suppose they were wrong when they said money can't buy everything... It buys pills that make you happy, give you back a sex life, cures diseases,
money buys pretty much everything there is in today's world. Including immunity.
It's disgusting to see corporations like this get away with travesties against nature, but I can't help but wonder how many other companies world
wide have basically done the exact same thing with out so much interest from public eyes.
You would think more people would be aware of the developments of the Monsanto Corporation. You would think there would be more public outcry when a
company that feeds our children, husbands, wives, brothers and sisters basically says" Open your mouth and close your eyes, and you will get a big
surprise." When is the last time any of you actually fell for this childhood fake out? I would have to say I was still in grade school, mistrusting
an older sibling or classmate usually to be given a worm, or something spicy.
Why do mature, "educated" adults allow this kind of BS to go on in our nations? What happened to our voice, our choice and the system that is
supposed to prevent EXACTLY what Monsanto is trying to do.
When the FDA was founded, nothing that is slated for human consumption is supposed to be able to side step regulations and safe practices. No company
can promote sell a product with out listing it's ingredients, where it came from etc. Why is Monsanto above this? How did this act even get to a
court, it should have been smacked down at it's birth, and the perpetrators charged with criminal conspiracy.
I've bounced in and out of Anger with monsanto and hope that Natural products would inevitably prevail, either by modified crops producing terrible
product, or causing problems, or the public outcry finally reaching the level it should.
I can't even believe this is getting by. I understand the premise behind engineered crops, I suppose in some areas they could work, but for the most
part they aren't what they are made out to be, nor are many of them much better than natural crops. There isn't enough data to slap a SAFE FOR
CONSUMPTION act on every product they have produced either.
I'm 100% against this act, I can not support any act giving any company, or organization immunity to regulation.
One seriously peeved Hijinx right here.
