Ya, but it's probably not failing to kill us.

Mary, you hit the nail on the head. Bugs have been around for eons and will probably survive a lot longer than most other species on earth. Thanks Judy.

Please go to my petitions now for an update on the GE Alfalfa issue and the Monsanto GE Corn issue

First tell Walmart to REJECT Monsanto GE Sweet Corn
This one urgent!

Next, A San Francisco judge sided with Monsanto in a case to try to reverse the approval of GE Alfalfa, and the Center for Food Safety is appealing. Please keep the pressure on the USDA and on Obama.

Also let them know you support the farmers fighting Monsanto's seed tyranny:

Thanks, Susan V
