Thank you for speaking out against the escalation of herbicides being sprayed over our crops. Every voice we add to this fight gives the SumOfUs greater strength to stand up to corporate giants, and helps our movement grow.

Drought, crop failures, rising food prices, food shortages, and famine will teach not only DOW a thing or too, but all the rest of us too. Noted and signed for what little good it will do. The world needs massive research into adapting crops to withstand extremely changeable weather running the gambit from excessive rain and flooding to prolonged periods of drought. Whatever means need to be used to accomplish this should be ASAP.

If the Dept. of Agriculture kills off enough of us, who is going to do their 'dirty work'?

How can the American people tell USDA, FDA & EPA anything,these three agencies don't listen to no one.

Dow and Monsanto can afford lobbyists to sway the votes in D.C. How can we compete with them by signing petitions? I signed this one, but I'm very pessimistic that it will do any good. Again, we are in the position of having to defend and protect ourselves from our own poisoned government that should be protecting us. But money and free perks seem to work better on our elected officials than millions of our signatures, our voices and our votes. The real poison is in our governmental system, and until we have true election reform, I don't expect much.

Thanks, Nancy, I signed and shared on Facebook. I truly believe that many of our current health problems are due to the pesticides and herbicides that are used so freely.
