Late last night President Barack Obama signed H.R. 933, which contained the Monsanto Protection Act into law. President Obama knowingly signed the Monsanto Protection Act over the urgent pleas of more than 250,000 Americans who asked that he use his executive authority to veto it. President Obama failed to live up to his oath to protect the American people and our constitution.

Today we’re calling on President Obama to issue an executive order to call for the mandatory labeling of genetically engineered foods.

Not only is GMO labeling a reasonable and common sense solution to the continued controversy that corporations like Monsanto, DuPont and Dow Chemical have created by subverting our basic democratic rights, but it is a basic right that citizens in 62 other countries around the world already enjoy, including Europe, Russia, China, India, \

I urge everyone to raise a deafening public outcry – every voice adds to the noise that we can create.  Let’s make a noise that cannot be ignored.

The Monsanto Protection Act was slipped quietly through the Congress, in the usual devious manner.  Officially called the  Farmer Assurance Provision, the resolution puts Monsanto, with all their toxins like the cheerfully dubbed Agent Orange and Round-up, as well as their genetically modified monstrosities, beyond the reach of the judicial system.  The courts cannot stop the death brokering company from growing crops deemed to be potentially dangerous.  (Ummm….that would be ALL OF THEM that have been produced by the Monsanto mad science club.)

If ever there was a company that embodied evil, it would be the Monsanto Company

  1. Sorry Dale but you got this one wrong. Instead of blaming Obama for this, try looking at just who put the Monsanto Protection Act in HR 933 in the first place. The GOP slipped it into a critical bill which was designed to avoid a government shutdown. They knew Obama could NOT veto this bill, otherwise the government would have shut down, and other items in the bill like the Violence Against Women Act and SNAP assistance would have also been vetoed. IF Obama had vetoed HR 933 the government would have shut down and people would be screaming about how Obama let the government shut down. It was a no-win for him. The GOP plays games with our lives and hopes people will blame Obama for their political ineptitude. Apparently, it works.

    Think for a minute if you were the one faced with vetoing a critical bill such as HR 933 or not. What would YOU do? Veto it and people will blame you for allowing the government to shut down, or not veto it and have people like yourself blaming you for something in the bill you had nothing to do with. Rock meet hard place.

    People should take some time to read up on the content of these bills to see what the priority of the House GOP truly is. maybe we should make it so the bills have one item only? No more riders and poisoned pills.
