Frankenfoods For All!

I thought I had heard it all … guess not 😦 

We all know that Monsanto is a big producer of Roundup-ready corn (corn that is genetically modified so farmers spraying Roundup on their fields do not harm the corn itself). On the surface that sounds [maybe] good, but of course, some component of that chemical ends up in our bodies when we consume such crops. 

Well, now that the resistance of weeds is rising against Roundup (as anything does when you overuse it), Monsanto is going to release a new corn seed genetically spliced with a component of Agent Orange! Yes, Agent Orange!!! And thus far the FDA is saying it’s OK! 

Does the lunacy ever stop? This is the kind of business that people hate … that people try to point out to as what is bad about Capitalism. And, it IS bad, but that is not capitalism… that is deceipt, greed and an outright atrocity! 

Go here to voice your opinion to the FDA concerning this nonsense…. once this get stopped, we need to get together and END the jobs of people in the FDA that would allow such nonsense!   http://tinyurl.com/76kt5cr

BTW … Originally when scientists realized they could swap DNA between species, they got together in a conference and agreed that to do so would be too risky, too dangerous, over the top, irreversable and uncontrollable (much like they said about cloning human beings). They agreed that they must self-police and ban such practices. 

Monsanto, of course, knew different. They found a way to pursue this new technology, put GMOs in people’s food, manipulate the FDA to allow GMOs in the market without any required safety studies. The person at that time in charge of FDA policy was Michael Taylor who just happened to be Monsanto’s former attorney. He later became Monsanto’s Vice President and is now the US Food Safety Czar appointed by president Obama. He completely ignored warning after warning of their own scientists who said that this is dangerous, unpredictable and could cause health problems. 

How warm and fuzzy, is it not?

About Bits 'n PCs

I was raised in a two-parent functional home and have worked hard the majority of my life. I started my first business at the age of 12 mowing lawns in my neighborhood. At age 14, I worked summers as a bricklayer's laborer and weekends as a machine shop janitor. I have come to enjoy politics but have grave concerns for our country and how it is changing and going deeper and deeper into debt. I also worry about people who willfully want to believe every sound bite their party puts out instead of fact-checking for the truth. Politics has become a very vicious 'game' in which there are virtually no rules and no limits anymore. It's time to set the record straight pertaining to ALL sides of the aisle. Thus, NewsWhores was born. Come watch us grow.
