Monsanto Protection Act Moves to States

Monsanto-GMO-FoodsMissouri’s Monsanto Protection Act

Nothing says, “owned by Monsanto” better than Missouri’s HJR 7 and 11. Representative Jason Smith of Missouri, the Republican Nominee for US Congressional seat of retired Representative JoAnn Emerson, has put in a proposed Constitutional Amendment that would “forever protect agricultural technology” in Missouri. Emerson evidently hand picked Smith as her replacement and reportedly he flew to DC several times to be introduced to his future colleagues. Interestingly enough, one of Emerson’s daughters is a chief lobbyist for Monsanto, and Smith has received campaign donations from Missouri Senator Roy Blunt’s “Rely on Your Beliefs” PAC. Most will recall that Blunt admitted to allowing Monsanto to write the “Monsanto Protection Act” that recently passed in HB933.

There are similar protect Monsanto bills in several other States during this spring legislative session, all being touted as “Right to Farm” bills. Those States are Delaware, Montana, Indiana, and Oklahoma. People concerned with healthy food choices and the continuation of family farms should get on their State’s websites and make sure that this type of protect Monsanto legislation isn’t progressing in their State.

    Putting things in the Constitution is definitely the right way to go. However knowing the spineless jerks that are our representatives I would bet that your right to market your milk, homemade kraut etc. will not be regulated by the free market but by arbitrary government dictates. They in other words will remain government permissions rather than rights.

    The people nor the psychopaths in governments still do not get that they are there to protect our rights. They still regard most everything as a government permission.

    After walking the halls of the Senate Wednesday sounds like it would pass IF it gets up for a vote, but there are at least two senators prepping to filibuster it.

    When your fans click on the offer and if they are a real “passionate” group, chances
    are high that they’ll complete the CPA offer that you have.

    They are derived from the Tibetan lama chanting practice,
    whereby one may attain enlightenment. This episode of Naruto
    Shippuden 241 will bring us Guy sensei spine.
