I also saw that they plan to develop GE Honey bees. They're going after the pollinators so even backyard gardens won't be safe from frankencrap. If a country says no to GMO, they can just release some trojan bees. Imagine getting stung by a frankenbee and getting dosed with GMOs, right into the body. Scary stuff those GMO monsters.

Monsanto is the perfect example of corporate greed -- at the expense of our health and the planet's health.

Monsanto is an evil corporation. It has been banned in many countries. It will stop at nothing. It does not belong in our government.

Another reason not to vote for Obama (the Money Waster)....who knows what other dealings are happening behind our backs....politicians.... crooks no matter what the party afffilation. Money is all that matters to Democrats as well. Just look at Obama's sift from BAD Super Packs to GOOD Super Pacs.

Noted and signed. Don't like Monsanto or their attitude. Putting Michael Taylor in charge of anything to do with food or our environment is like putting the fox in charge of the hen house. Bad idea all around.
