Signed. I avoid GMO foods. I rarely eat corn or corn products unless they are organic, because I know they are from Monsanto bred crops. I don't want any part of that.

Thanks Debbie! I avoid it too, only eat organic. Problem is, this stuff is starting to encroach on organic foods by cross pollination. We have to get it OUT of this country!!

Laura Saxon, I understand what you are saying. There are many reasons for the issues we have in our government right now and hopefully, with the 2014 elections, we can change all of that around sooon. Obama made the labeling of GMO foods a promise in his 2007 campaign. We MUST DO everything possible to make him stick to those promises. Thanks

The only good thing about GMO is corporate profits. Good for the shareholders and CEO's, not good for the rest of us, the animals and the environment. End the sowing of the seeds of destruction forever or 50 years from now, the world's plants will be all GMO from cross pollination. The bees and other wildlife won't fare well at all in the World of Monsanto!

If anyone is on Facebook, please share, and to those who already have ... thank you very much. This is our food supply we are talking about, and Washington isn't listening. A talk show host who was fired from his position received over 200,000 signatures overnight on a petition to reinstate him. Very sad that the people of this country care more about who is on TV than what goes into their bellies. We are what we eat ... literally.

If this petition can get 25000 signatures by the end of August, it will remain on the White House website so that it can gain even more signatures, AND the President will have to respond to it. So ... pass it around and please get every person you know to sign this petition. Our food sources depend on this stuff getting banned. Thanks!!!

There are only 5 days left for this petition to gain 938 more signatures and bring the total to 25,000. This would allow for the petition to remain on the White House Petition website in order to gain more signatures and for the President to be required to comment on it. If it does not get 25,000 signatures, it is taken down. This is so important. This was one of the promises he made when he ran for office. To label GMOs. If we can't get 25,000 signature in 30 days, then, obviously, not enough people care whether or not their food is made in a lab and that organic food may very well disappear from this planet.

A big thanks to everyone who has signed and shared ... please consider sharing again.

IT seems the powers that be do not even want labeling much less a ban on GMO's, which is totally insane in the thinking of many of us...obviously.Petititions on site after site and still they push for GMO and ignore the people..Monsanto is the biggest enemy of the world currently in my opinion. Not only unhealthy GMO products but whoever controls the worlds food supply will control all of us and I for one sure as hell don't want them ruling our lives much less that of the whole world due to lack of action by our government to stop them in their tracks.

*Take the money from others...if you must...that's corporate politics and bad for the people that you do in general but not another penny from Monsanto Obama/Congress ...and ALL those who are in their pockets on local and state levels also while pretending to represent the people
This is not just about a campaign promise, this is about our very existence/health !!!! You 'poles' and your corporate bosses have your G.D. wars for profits so leave our food supply/source alone !! *

Anyway..gladly signed.

We only need 25,000 to keep this petition on the web site as an active petition and have the President respond to it. Any petition that gets 25,000 signatures within 30 days he responds to, and then it is allowed to stay on the site so that more signatures can be gotten. Please, please please pass this around to anyone you know! This is so very important!! And thanks to all who have signed and shared.

You are welcome, this is the 2nd time I've sent it around on C2, sorry I'm not on FB but I've sent to my private email addresses as well. Best I can do. If everyone would just forward it at least once on C2 and ask others to do it as well that would be great. I'd rather receive an important petition like this fifty times than not receive it at all.

Wow, that stinks. So close too. We can see where the priorities are in this Country. The reason we are in such a mess. Sorry I couldn't have done better for it, is disappointing that the members on here don't pass something as important as this around. I'll get a lot of help this little kitty cat a dozen times, and believe me, I love cats, but this is so critical and everyone eats including the little kitty cats and the crap is landing in their food too.
