One has to wonder how Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri benefited by sliding in that nasty little rider that puts Monsanto above the law? Not unlike Judas Iscariot, Blunt used his position to betray those who trusted him, but it appears that the senator got more than 30 pieces of silver.

As an elected official, Senator Blunt is obligated to promote the wishes of the people. All of them, not just the ones with money.

Let’s go down the rabbit hole and explore why Blunt might have done such a thing.

Monsanto has its home base in St. Louis, Missouri, and here we can begin to see the connection between Blunt and the evil company.

Just a cursory search shows financial ties of nearly $350,000. To name just a few direct links between Monsanto and Blunt, the following donation amounts are from the website Open Secrets...

Hang on – there are a couple MORE links between Blunt and Monsanto,(not to mention other special interest groups like Phillip Morris, Altria, and Kraft). In fact, Blunt has a long, sordid history of slipping bills in that help out the big spenders, a lover, and his sons....

This Monsanto rider isn’t the first time Blunt has tried to help out a big donor. In 2003, literally hours after he was named whip for the House Republicans, he attempted a less successful stealth legislation attached to the 475 page bill that created the DHS for his buddies at Phillip Morris.....

Given the above, it probably comes as no surprise that the watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) bestowed upon Blunt a spot in the second annual report on the most corrupt members of Congress back in 2006 and then again in 2010. You can read the 2010 report on Blunt’s special interest pandering HERE.

So, Blunt was the architect of all of this sneaky little rider, slipped into HR 933. This doesn’t mean that the other members of Congress who voted for it are not complicit, however. The fact that President Obama does not have line-item veto authority doesn’t let him off the hook either. By refusing to send the entire bill back to be redrafted, every person who voted for this is guilty, as is President Obama.

Or, there is this libtard:

"When the Newtown shooting took the lives of 20 children, the nation was justifiably horrified. Journalists reported round the clock on ways to change public policy to prevent another shooting. But when seven children and a mother died in a Philadelphia abortion clinic dubbed a “house of horrors,” the major media couldn’t have cared less."

5/5/2013 — 4.2M + 3.7M Earthquakes at Lava Hot Springs, Idaho — Dormant volcano movement

May 5, 2013 .. Two earthquakes at Lava Hot Springs, ID.*3 miles away*

More dormant volcano activity — no surprise at this point.

Here are my past posts on the dormant volcanic movement happening:


Wondering why the USGS lists the nearest town as “Soda Springs”.. when clearly Lava Hot Springs is right there at the epicenter… I’m sure they might use the population density map as the reason to NOT list this town, but as someone who is interested in geology / volcanology / seismology , knowing this is the location, makes a HUGE difference in determining the actual cause of the movement.

For the general public, the USGS would just have you see this:

M4.2 – 28km W of Soda Springs, Idaho 2013-05-06 03:13:42 UTC

In reality, the screenshot shows you what is at the earthquake epicenter. Lava Hot Springs.

Here’s to DOWNPLAYING EARTHQUAKES….lol… hasn’t the USGS seen the Movie Dante’s Peak?

Syria intervenes in the Lebanese civil war, sending a force of 25,000 soldiers to Lebanon to prevent the defeat of right-wing Christian militias. Syria’s military presence in Lebanon continues for nearly three decades, enabling Syria to exert significant influence on Lebanese politics.
The U.S. State Department designates Syria a state sponsor of terrorism, citing its alleged support for Palestinian militant groups. The designation carries economic sanctions.
Islamist resistance to the Assad regime grows. Islamist and secular opposition groups organize demonstrations and riots around the country. A member of the Muslim Brotherhood attempts to assassinate Assad.

Note-NO Bushes as POTUS for another 6 years. After one term --along came Clinton for the double term.
Stupid blame potus's bobbleheads.
Again, the ignorance amazes me! You've just admitted exactly what I said in my post. Reagan started everything. He created the monster known as "Saddam Hussein." He was Americas friend, as long as his Intel in the region were in our best interest. So much of a friend that we trained & armed his military.(under Reagan). When Bush sr gained office, he took Americas influence in the middle east to the next level. For the love of oil, though the blind will say,"we were just protecting our ally. Bush sr turned a friend into an enemy when he interfered in Iraq invading Kuwait in attempts to take over the oil field they both shared. Clinton just inherited both, Reagan's & Bush sr bullshit. The Arabs & Indians didn't take kind to American footprints on Muslim soil, which was what set Bin Laden off. You can act like the Bush's business dealings with Bin Laden had nothing to do with 9/11 if you want. When dealing in international affairs, there is no such thing as coincidence! Bottom line, Reagan created Saddam, Bush sr made him an enemy. Clinton destroyed any such capability of an Iraqi attack on American soil which was why there was no reason for America to invade Iraq. Bush sr interfering in Iraqs takeover of the oil field shared with Kuwait, sparked Osama Bin Laden & Al Qaeda's hatred for America, not to mention, Bush Jr had business dealings with Bin Laden up until 9/11. At the very least, Bush should be held an accomplice. Bush was even given specific instructions on what was to happen on 9/11. When the FBI & CIA tools Bush about the eventual hijackers, he told them to stop the investigation. Now do your homework & look up everything I said. You will only come to 1 conclusion, unless your insane!

No Surprize, "Barack Obama signed the GMO bill" But, Congress, using a usual Republican trick that hides any backroom deals with Big Ag,made an 'anonymous introduction of the Monsanto Protection rider ' into the large appropriation bill needed to be passed to avoid a government shut-down.-- no one in Congress was aware that the rider was even in the bill .(Obama signed the bill, but blame ought to be directed at Congress) "Since the act’s passing, more than 250,000 people have signed a petition opposing the provision and a rally, consisting largely of farmers organized by the Food Democracy Now network, protested outside the White House Wednesday. Not only has anger been directed at the Monsanto Protection Act’s content, but the way in which the provision was passed through Congress without appropriate review by the Agricultural or Judiciary Committees. The biotech rider instead was introduced anonymously as the larger bill progressed — little wonder food activists are accusing lobbyists and Congress members of backroom dealings." Don't blame Obama for offering enough 'rope' for Congressional republicans in the deep pockets of Big Ag to hang themselves . Check this out:

My family belonged to an HMO for years, loved it.
During that time I saw three or four different doctors who were employes of the HMO. Persons with serious illnesses/injuries would be referred to specialists and case workers would keep those doctors on budget.
$15 visits $5 prescription co-pay.
Good for you if you like it, but saving money to join an HMO cedes a portion of your independence to the bureaucracy and the need for referrals can waste critical time in serious cases.

I was just correcting one of your many erroneous posts that you make.

Your party tacked on the Monsanto baloney onto an urgently needed appropriations bill knowing that it would sneak through. And then run screaming through the street how its Obama's fault.

I am not "surprised", you fricken right whiners never ever accept blame for the stuff your party does.

Fenris the Big Bad Wolf, "you still didnt address the main issue of abortion of innocents vs capital punishment for the heinous.

My original premise remains intact & unscathed..... " Nope; I did. Pay attention better, short-attention span libertarian with marbles for brains. Capital punishment has been the law of the land in how many states of the U S? And in all that time has capital punishment ever lived up to its proponents' grandiose claims that it deters murder? No; not ever; never. So, my criticism of legal moralists remains intact & unscathed... It never works very well whether you're trying to legislate sexual morality, drug use,or other social and moral behavior.

Penis scientist Rush Limbaugh is reportedly upset with executives at his flagship station WABC and its parent company, Cumulus. He's so mad, in fact, that's he's reportedly threatening to leave the company. Why? Because Lew Dickey, Cumulus's CEO, is (probably correctly) blaming Limbaugh's “slut” comments last year for declining ad revenue at the company
Several major advertisers dropped support for Limbaugh after the “slut” incident, but Limbaugh and a source who spoke with the Daily News said the show's earnings were “very minimally impacted in the short term.”
Politico, however, notes that Dicky, on an August 2012 earnings call. said Cumulus's top three stations lost $5.5 million. Some of those losses, Dickey said, were because of the boycotts agains Limbaugh. In a March 2013 earnings call, Dickey said the company was still suffering because of the comments, blaming them for roughly a third of the company's revenue losses.
Dickey should replace Rush with Rachel Maddow to boost profits.

Or perhaps an NPR snoozathon.
