Proposition 37 – The "imaginary" costs…

Well, the anti-Prop 37 goons are at it again.  Again, touting that the labeling of GMO’s will cost billions, with a “B”, that’s $1,000,000,000’s.  Maybe I’m just kind of rational, but I don’t think that if, and when, Proposition 37 passes, all food containing GMO’s sitting on store shelves will be recalled to be “repackaged”… that’s asanine.  And, I’m still waiting for any one of these anti-Prop 37 morons to clarify how adding two words to a label will increase overall costs of products.

And to consumers that are swayed by the wide-sweeping lies of $400 of annual added food and grocery expenses; if you value $400 more than providing good, natural, and nutritional food and ingredients to your family you have some issues of priorities.

But hey, every daily newspaper in California agrees, “No on Prop 37”.  As if, anyway, printed corporate newspapers are relevant anymore to begin with.  As is, those same newspapers have lost the majority of their readership and are struggling to fund their operations.  As if they weren’t given a dime by the corporations mentioned later in this post.  As if… …

Oh yeah and what about the “special interest exemptions; dog food requires a label but meat for human consumption does not.”  Well, could it possibly be because a steak sitting on a shelf at the market doesn’t have GMO ingredients but dog food does???  I’ve said it again and again, cat and dog food, the bad kinds anyway, are full of GMO corn and grain… used as a filler.  But the anti-Prop 37 simpleton goons like to spin things, of course, preying on the fact Mr. John Doe out there can’t find his ass with both hands.

The pro-GMO goons also like to bring up shakedown lawsuits.  Why would anyone be sued when ingredients are labeled.  Of course, they go into no further detail what-so-ever.  Hey, wait a minute, what about biotech suing and shutting down farms and farmers when their crops become polluted with GMO seed?    Unlike the complete idiots at “No on Prop. 37” I’ll furnish, just a few, links where you may read further on the shady nature of biotech firms:

Monsanto tries to criminalize saving seeds, drags farmer into court

Monsanto campaign to put small farmers out of business?

Read countless experiences with Monsanto here…

For you Viet Nam vets out there, Monsanto was one of the most important manufacturers of Agent Orange as well.  [It was Mitt Romney (no, he’s not a cheesy 80’s game show host) who saved Monsanto’s reputation]

And, of course, you can kind of, maybe, do your own research… you know?

And now, I’ll leave you with the back story on one of Proposition 37’s biggest opponents.  Watch it.  Send it to your friends and family.

This has not been paid for by No on 37: Coalition Against Food Labeling, sponsored by Farmers, Food Producers, and Grocers. Major funding by Monsanto Company, E.I. DuPont de Nemours & Co., Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) and more than 40 food company members.  This was written by someone, like you, that must eat food to live.  Someone that wants to eat natural food, not food from a laboratory.  Someone that doesn’t want or need even more health variables in my life.  Someone that wants to protect what is natural.  Someone that knows and believes he has a right to know what’s in his food.
