On March 28, 2013, to prevent the government from shutting down, President Barack Obama signed the short-term spending bill into law. It was bill HR933.
PARDON ME BUT… I don’t think our boy BARACK read the bill or knew what was in it. He probably thought that it was just what it was supposed to be… and nothing more.
Well BARACK was wrong. It was more, it was a lot more.
Tactfully tucked inside the bill was an additional rider—section 735, dubbed the Farmer Assurance Provision. Almost immediately – section 735 was given a nickname by outraged Environmentalists: “The Monsanto Protection Act” it’s called.
The Monsanto Protection Act – in simple terms.
Crafted by Senator Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), AND Monsanto itself – would #1 give big agri-business immunity from judicial oversight. ie. (It allows the US Department of Agriculture to approve of the planting of genetically modified crops even if the judiciary had declared them unsafe)
Are you imagining the future effects? This is Monsanto and their lobby we’re talking about. The same company that poisoned America’s veterans in Vietnam is responsible for producing the food that appears on our plates every day.
It’s an irrefutable fact that Monsanto lied to the U.S. government and our veterans about the health impacts of Agent Orange. What makes anyone think Monsanto is now telling you the truth about the science behind genetic engineering and the food they are feeding us. That person is either a fool, delusional or a member of Congress.
