    Really, a thread about social security? Can't come up with anything more interesting, like farm subsidies or fishing treaties?

    Actually, if you want to talk about Monsanto we can talk. But we'd probably agree and there's not much fun in that...

    Obama signs 'Monsanto Protection Act' written by Monsanto-sponsored senator

     

    United States President Barack Obama has signed a bill into law that was written in part by the very billion-dollar corporation that will benefit directly from the legislation.

    On Tuesday, Pres. Obama inked his name to H.R. 933, a continuing resolution spending bill approved in Congress days earlier. Buried 78 pages within the bill exists a provision that grossly protects biotech corporations such as the Missouri-based Monsanto Company from litigation.

    With the president’s signature, agriculture giants that deal with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and genetically engineered (GE) seeds are given the go-ahead to continue to plant and sell man-made crops, even as questions remain largely unanswered about the health risks these types of products pose to consumers.

    In light of approval from the House and Senate, more than 250,000 people signed a petition asking the president to veto the spending bill over the biotech rider tacked on, an item that has since been widely referred to as the “Monsanto Protection Act.”

    “But Obama ignored [the petition],” IB Times’ Connor Sheets writes, “instead choosing to sign a bill that effectively bars federal courts from being able to halt the sale or planting of GMO or GE crops and seeds, no matter what health consequences from the consumption of these products may come to light in the future.”

    James Brumley, a reporter for Investor Place, explains a little more thoroughly just how dangerous the rider is now that biotech companies are allowed to bypass judicial scrutiny. Up until it was signed, he writes, “the USDA [US Department of Agriculture] oversaw and approved (or denied) the testing of genetically modified seeds, while the federal courts retained the authority to halt the testing or sale of these plants if it felt that public health was being jeopardized. With HR 933 now a law, however, the court system no longer has the right to step in and protect the consumer.”

    If the president’s signature isn’t all that surprising, though, consider the genesis of the bill itself. According to an article published Monday in the New York Daily News, US Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Missouri)“worked with Monsanto to craft the language in the bill.

    But I thought Obama was a socialist, Kenyan-baffoon, who took care of those who weren't willing to work, while attempting to drag the most successful Americans down! How dare he prove our outrageous claims incorrect! 

    In all seriouness, I'm not a big fan of this. Cuts should be coming from other places before Social Security, but hopefully the right-wing nuts will shut the hell up and realize they've been wrong about this guy for awhile.

    This is the wrong forum for your political views, there are plenty of people in the politics forum that will discuss this.




    While I agree that this is a very important and even a moral issue I must agree that a thread about it is best somewhere else. It need not be just a political thread as I understand you want to have people who do not focus so much on politics to think about it. Still, I wont get bent out of shape about it being here and if enough people decide to chime in I might too. But consider other venues.

    What's funny about your behavior is there is no way you could speak as freely as you do, as dumb as you are, in any of the countries that have the cuckoo leaders you love so much.

    You'd be tracked, arrested, thrown in jail with no trial and or worse.

    You live in Miami, go ask Cuban refugees about their stories fleeing under Castro, dumb dumb.

    You're heroes are a disgrace to humanity.  Lenin, Stalin, Che Guvera, Castro, etc. All poseurs as leaders and fighting in the name of the people, but it's really a guise for their own rise to power.

     

     



    This is an ignorant, even stupid post.

Everyone should be boycotting Roundup and all other Monsanto products - I have for years!!!!

    There's zero difference between democrats and republicans... until you people realize that you'll keep running in circles while they steal every last dime.

    What's better McDonalds or BurgerKing, Coke or Pepsi?  

    There is no difference, and you people keep buying their ish infested products.




    Well said Wozzy-their ALL crooks-throw the lot of em out on their arsses!

    so you haven't posted any sources then burger... woulnd't that random guy fall under your category of "just one man's opinion"?

    there were no weapons of mass destruction. get over it. chemical materials are not weapons of mass destruction. and it's his opinion that they would be used to make some type of chemical weapon. he's just a pawn giving his opinion. 

    and i don't believe for a second that you read his book. but nice try in piggy backing off someone elses post when you are proven a fraud. FACT, burger doesn't source his BS rhetoric.

     



    Umm, yes a dirty bomb or chemical weapons are considered WMDs. 

     

    Did you just call a volunteer military person a "pawn"?  I read the book.  Yes.  I know who he is. He also murdered last month.

    I read lots of books to educate myself, because that's what intelligent people do. Read, learn and form their own opinions after educating onself to the best of their ability.

    Your idea of reading or doing research is to scan interwebs with Google. You've never been to a library in your life.

    What college did you go to and what career do you currently have?  Why won't you answer such basic questions, Wicky?

     




    King I don't think you're a bad guy but when you think you know more than you do, and others realize you don't, it kind of takes away your credibility. Just a suggestion.  Maybe you should not post about EVERY topic and try to be more specific on topiccs where you have more knowledge. BTW the New England Revolution have a forum also--jump on enjoy and take out some of your frustration there, then head back to the Real forum!
