Didn't know if this should go here or the farming section put it here cause it made the news. Any thoughts?

I don't think this one was an executive order. I believe this one was passed by both houses of Congress. You get the wisdom that you (collectively) vote for.

Once again the great senator from the Peoples Republic of Maryland has proven that her height and IQ are equal and amazingly she doesn't like the amendment either now that she got called on it. Also notice she has followed the POTUS by blaming the previous chairperson for the amendment being introduced.

its just suprising to pass a regulation like this. That you could manufacture a food that could potentialy kill people and not be held liable :sick: It just seems wrong on so many levels.

It speaks volumes about the Democratic and Republican parties joint outlook on our well being vs.theirs. What will it take before Americans wake up and totally abandon this DemoPublican charade? They are both beholden to the ruling Fascist Corprotocracy, and they are both in its back pocket.

How many people do "FDA approved" drugs kill every year and you have no recourse for that. What makes you think they'd treat food any different?

Actually I agree with Isayre on this, it was thrown in but no one in either House will take credit or blame for it. That is the sad part, our system is terribly flawed when something can be added to a bill that can possibly harm millions who would have no protections for the protection of one or a few, how can anything be added anonymously & then to boot not one of our so called elected protectors of our well being with nothing but the safety of We the People in mind admits to knowing it was there? Really a scary thought, if they are all to busy to read everything then surely someone somewhere in their staffs should have that responsability. That's why I have always wanted every bill & admendment to be voted on on it's own, they seem to have plenty of time instead of speaking for endless hours & saying little to nothing about the business at hand they could actually read what they would then be voting on even if they did have to work perhaps a day or two more per session. http://investorplace.com/investorpoliti ... n-america/

Everyone who voted yes took credit for it, including President Obama (by signing it into law). They wanted the rider to be in this bill.

And many who voted no did so only because it was already assured of passage, and the House and Senate players from both parties know how to take care of their constituents who stand to be negatively impacted in the next election by voting a certain way, so they always allow a certain number to vote against the majority in direct proportion to the impact upon re-election that they calculate for said Senator or Representative. It's all part of the game (of pulling the wool over our eyes).

That's why I said everything should be voted on on it's own merit & their would be a record of exactly how all voted & there should never be anything allowed to be brought up for a vote without ownership. We all know how the game is played (or at least should) & that's why things like this are added to bills that they know have the absolute best chance to pass. It's set up the way it is for nothing but pork & political lobbyists which both come before the people, the only good thing I believe I read is that there is a Sunset Clause of six months, then it should have to come up once again.

Prescription drugs are now the 4th leading cause of death in the USA. It will likely be far worse under Obamacare (the Affordable Health Care Act).

I have long held the belief that every individual item needs to be passed by a role call vote. Without such measures we get the “we have to pass it to see whats in it” crap.

I dont like monsanto but i dont really understand what the big fuss is all about. the crop is modified for whatever trait is wanted and then the crop has that trait. Corn has been modifyed to make proteins that kills corn worms so there no need to use poisn.

One concern is that there is no history or research by which to determine if the modification might cause long term harm to the humans or to animals. Another concern is that no seeds from Monsanto (or any other GMO crop originator) can be legally harvested and re-planted. And far more insidious is that Monsanto is taking farmers to court and winning cases whereby their GMO seeds blew or were carried by insects or birds into adjacent farmers fields, and these adjacent farmers who had nothing to do with the cross pollination are literally losing their farms, since juries are being convinced that the cross pollination was deliberate.
