    recieved the following email from Joe Ross as a forwarded email. Thought others might be interested as I am.

    <b>Subject: EMERGENCY ALERT!!!... If you care about organic food or growing your own food in any capacity, even a garden!

    Okay folks, this is real and if you've never been political before, here's your chance to make your voice heard. I just did it and it will literally take less than five minutes of your time!

    The U.S. house and senate are about to vote (in a week and a half!) on a law that will OUTLAW ORGANIC FARMING!! Main backer is (of course) Monsanto chemical and engineering giant corporation. This bill will require organic farms to use specific fertilizers and POISONOUS insect sprays dictated by the newly formed agency to "make sure there is no danger to the public food supply". This will include back yard gardens that grow food only for family use. If this passes. no more heirloom clean seeds but only Monsanto genetically altered seeds that are now showing up with UNEXPECTED DISEASES in humans!

    There is an enormous rush to get this into law within the next two weeks before the people realize what's happening.

    The insane bill is called "Food Safety and Modernization Act (Bill HR 875)

    Call Congressman Tom McClintock's office and tell them (politely) you'd like to vote NO on this bill.

    To make it easy for you, here's the numbers:

    Washington 202)225-2511

    California 916)786-5560

    If they don't ask, give them your name and city you are calling from.

    It's really easy and will only take a few minutes. If you care at all about our rights to eat foods WITHOUT CANCER CAUSING CHEMICALS in them call right now!! And PASS THIS ON to your ENTIRE email list!!

    Here's a bit about Monsanto: http://fooddemocracy.wordpress.com/2007/08/24/monsanto-the-bad-seed/

    Here's a couple videos on the subject:



    The House and Senate WILL pass this if they are not MASSIVELY threatened with the loss of their position....

    Their only fear is your voice and your vote! CALL THEM!!!</b>
  2. Congress meets to die
  3. How are they going to stop you from growing your own food?

    I see a bad moon rising. People are going to get their fill of

    this crap.
  4. I hate Monsanto. I hope they rot in hell.
  5. Organic farming is the weak link in the line of safe produce. Besides terror acts natural parasites develop on a regular basis. Without chemicals to kill all parasites there is greater risk.

    McDonalds has the worlds safest food chain. Its is monitored and checked every step of the way, a closed system.

    In the event of a public posioned food chain terrorist attack the grocery stores will be shut down.
    Big Mac's will be selling for $200

    Monsanto is a disease. Some of these corporations are so rapacious that members of the actual human race can't get their minds around it.

    You can't be serious.

  8. They produce chemicals that cause cancer but as another money maker they own cancer clinics.

    It's all good. They kill a lot and save a few.

    Monsanto has "former" employees employed by the FDA. The FDA has "former" employees employed by Monsanto, so it's all good.

    It's for the good of the people, yeah that's it.

    Food Safety and Modernization Act sounds like the global Codex Alimentarius that's a part of the UN's WHO and FAO. The Codex was started by Nazi war criminals intensive lobbying after they served a few years in prison so it's all good.

    Control the food, control the world.

    Agree with you there. I am sick and tired of the corruption in our Government. This is no longer a "government for the people and by people" it is government for the corporations and by the corporations.
  10. When the World Bank tried to precondition a loan to Bolivia on Bechtel (U.S. Defense Contractor that so happens to be in the water infrastructure business) receiving legal property rights to all water, including rain, so that collection of rainwater would be deemed theft of property, riots broke out and the government had to back down.

    Think I'm making this shit up? Seems impossible to believe?


    Imagine that. An attempt by a benevolent entity like the World Bank to empower a private corporation to lay legal claim to rain falling from the sky, leveraging the poor people of Bolivia and buying off its corrupt government...

    Americans are in a slumber, because nothing like this has been attempted to be forced upon them - yet. But it's creeping towards us; there are credible rumors that it's possible the U.K. may soon actually apply for an IMF loan. Wow! Just the mention of that would have been deemed unthinkable 10 years ago, yet the U.S. and U.K. both have debtor status that would make Donald Trump or Harry Macklowe blush.

    Of course, Monsanto does feel free to try and gain a monopoly on crop seed in the U.S. (genetically modified, of course; the only kind Monsanto can make money on), with the help of its friends on Capitol Hill and in the White House, and even has been known to spray farmers crops with pesticides to force them to prove they didn't 'steal' round-up ready seed in case the crops that were sprayed survived.

    And Monsanto is successfully blocking labeling laws in the U.S. that would allow consumers to know what milk is bovine growth hormone free - I repeat; the labeling law would allow dairy farmers to simply advertise their milk as bovine growth hormone free. But they can't even do this in a growing number of states. Because Monsanto lobbied to make it ILLEGAL.


    This is why American Milk is banned in Canada and Europe...


    ...as bovine growth hormone has been clinically demonstrated beyond any doubt to be a known carcinogen to cattle, and to cause primary and tertiary adverse health affects in humans who consume milk containing this synthetic hormone.

    This is the tip of the iceberg.

    Welcome to the new world of biosience meeting nepotistic government breeding with oligopoly profits, America! Your rights as knowing consumers and citizens are being stripped from you, and most of you don't even know it. It's the greatest scam ever.
