To the Readers of this Blog

A so-called 'Monsanto rider' was quietly slipped into the multi-billion dollar FY 2013 Agricultural Appropriations bill. It would 'require' the Secretary of Agriculture to grant a temporary permit for the planting or cultivation of a genetically engineered crop, even if a federal court has ordered the planting be halted until an Environmental Impact Statement is completed.

I urge the readers of this Blog to signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:
"Stop the Monsanto riders. Unless a citizen's army of farmers and consumers can stop them, Congress is likely to ram these dangerous riders through any day now."

Thanks Dee, I'm going over to sign right now. Talk about the "axis of evil." I'm also buying organic food, am in an earnest process of eliminating plastic from my life as best I can, am doing all household cleaning with vinegar, lemons, and baking powder, use rags instead of paper towels, and switched to organic make-up and beauty products even. They sell them at Target and Walgreens! Thanks to people like you, the message is getting out there and a movement is growing.
