Change We Can Believe In – The Famer's Market

This women wants to put an end to your farmer’s market. Read it and weep:

HR 875 – The Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009

Maybe Joe Riley can use his influence with Obama to save our local farmer’s market. Or, maybe Jim Clyburn can intercede, even though he hates Gov. Sanford, and save our local farmers. But, wait a minute, I thought lobbyists were going to part of the most corrupt administration ever (that would be the latest Bush Administration), and would disappear in this administration.

The sponsor, Rosa DeLauro, is, coincidentally, married to Stan Greenberg.

Stan lobbies on behalf of Monsanto. Monsanto, according to the link:

It is the world’s leading producer of the herbicide glyphosate, marketed as "Roundup". Monsanto is also by far the leading producer of genetically engineered (GE) seed, holding 70%–100% market share for various crops. Agracetus, owned by Monsanto, exclusively produces Roundup Ready soybean seed for the commercial market. In March 2005, it finalized the purchase of Seminis Inc, making it also the largest conventional seed company in the world. It has over 18,800 employees worldwide, and an annual revenue of USD$11.365 billion reported for 2008.[2]

Monsanto’s development and marketing of genetically engineered seed and bovine growth hormone, as well as its aggressive litigation and political lobbying practices, have made the company controversial around the world and a primary target of the anti-globalization movement and environmental activists.

What’s next, nationalized health insurance, or maybe making wounded soldiers pay for their medical care?

The fix is in…..
