Long may you volunteer TC! Kudos to you – and the chaps you help.

I agree strongly about GMOs – I don't want them snuck into food and for the whole world to be turned into an experimental lab for these multinationals – and all of us do have the basic right to know what is in our food!!!

I have already read one story about a possibility of GMO corn linked to cancer. GMO is the tip of a very bad iceberg. There is a REASON in nature for us to eat NATURAL food.

Puzzle — 4:17 I`m seeing red!

CNN Money — No filibuster! No roll call vote! That is not kosher for the Republican/Teabaggers! That certainly would indicate that the Republican/Teabaggers think they have a leg up for their bankster buddies! Something is definitely wrong in the state of Denmark!

Grist — TC — ¨… all we really got from the Iraq war was death, injury and debt", and a reputation as a belligerent, lying warmonger. Put in perspective like that, it just boggles the mind!

Alternet — "Whether or not GMO’s are hazardous is not the issue here. It’s much more basic than that. Consumers have a right to know what is in the food we buy, period!"


Cartoon — The Appomattox Courthouse and the technical end of the Civil War. Sometimes you`d never know the war ended 148 years ago with all the rhetoric about seccession coming predominantly from the southern states, Republican/Teabagger states.

Thanks to all but John. Obama does lots that I don't like, but if little Lord Willard had won, we'd have more GMOs and toxins. As for chained CPI and Keystone XL, please wait until he does it to blame him.
