Sneaky Monsanto and Senator Roy Blunt Are Looking To Kill Us

Earlier this month, Whole Foods, the well-known and respected healthy food grocery chain, just got more respect and lifted my spirit when they made a commitment to not sell genetically modified food organism [GMO] products. As did my favorite, Trader Joe’s. Indeed, I was very, very happy!

Unbeknownst to us all, our government passed HR933, the Farmers Assurance Provision with its main purpose as a spending bill. But buried deep inside that bill was Section 735, the Monsanto Protection Act. International Business Times reported it was “written in collusion with Monsanto” and with the help of Senator Roy Blunt, Republican of Missouri. This provision allows Monsanto to “keep selling seeds, which can then go on to be planted, even if…found to be harmful to consumers” otherwise known as GMOs. The bill also provides “[barring of] federal courts from being able to halt the sale or planting of controversial genetically modified [GMO] or genetically engineered [GE] seeds, no matter what health issues may arise concerning GMOs in the future” giving rise of suspicion that Monsanto is pretty sure this whole GMO thing is bad for you. So to protect themselves, this law they wrote effectively gives them carte blanche over the nations food supply with no consequence when “adverse health effects” from eating genetically modified foods appear. The provision maintains courts cannot protect the public because under this law, they have no authority or ability to stop Monsanto and the “spread of the seeds and the crops they bear.”

Any reasonable person, when informed even a little, knows from logic that if a substance injected into soil or a plant designed to kill pests begs the question, “How long is it going to take before we become that pest and start experiencing increased disease and death in ways we cannot explain or imagine today?”

Astoundingly, most members of Congress “were…unaware that the Monsanto Protection Act,” Section 735, even existed within the bill they voted on. HR933 had been perceived and sold as a spending bill to prevent government from shutting down so we as a country could continue to pay our bills. Then came along the unconscionable “backroom deal” dire in consequence and conveniently piggy-backed into legislation.

We are literally being sent down an exceedingly polluted river on a raft of genetically modified organisms by a chemical company making huge profits and by government representatives not caring enough to know what is in a bill they have just voted on. According to Salon.com, the Food Democracy Now and the Center for Food Safety are looking at Senator Barbara Mikulski, D-Maryland, Chair Senate Appropriations Committee, for letting this slip by. The irresponsibility of Sen. Mikulski and others is reprehensible. It should make us wonder if these people care nothing about their own children and grandchildren let alone ours.

To every Senator, Representative and the President, I ask, “Do you not have a method to read every bill you vote on from beginning to end before giving your vote? A way to find those hidden provisions that special interests want to sneak in?” Riders loaded into bills at the eleventh hour that have nothing to do with the core of any provision are not new. Mr. President, Senators and Representatives, you get paid to create, read, know, understand and be smart about legislation. This wasn’t smart.

Chemical giant Monsanto and lesser known chemical companies have been able to hoodwink you as well as us. They have manipulated, with the help of Senators Blunt and Mikulski in particular, Congress and the President into passing and signing something that will save crops from bugs and pests and likely will contribute to or actually kill people in the process. We are faced not only with a compromised food supply, but a deplorable manipulation of our democratic process.

If we don’t as a people, take action and speak out now for repeal, children born today will inherit a far more devastating problem than any other when they as grown-ups deal with a tainted food supply causing unforeseen illness. There is no greater tragedy to bestow upon the human race than intentional manufactured chemical destruction of healthy farm practices and healthy food. Fortunately, there is a growing demand by the public for nutritious, organically grown, healthy foodstuffs free of chemicals. Crop rotation where are you when we need you! Time is now to be on this together and writing every politician we can think of from our own to the two specifically mentioned in this article straight through to the President.

I commit to you, to my children and to my grandchildren; this will not be a topic I will leave alone. There is too much at stake.
