United States President Barack Obama has signed a bill into law that was written in part by the very billion-dollar corporation that will benefit directly from the legislation.

On Tuesday, Pres. Obama inked his name to H.R. 933, a continuing resolution spending bill approved in Congress days earlier. Buried 78 pages within the bill exists a provision that grossly protects biotech corporations such as the Missouri-based Monsanto Company from litigation.

With the president’s signature, agriculture giants that deal with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and genetically engineered (GE) seeds are given the go-ahead to continue to plant and sell man-made crops, even as questions remain largely unanswered about the health risks these types of products pose to consumers.

....If the president’s signature isn’t all that surprising, though, consider the genesis of the bill itself. According to an article published Monday in the New York Daily News, US Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Missouri)“worked with Monsanto to craft the language in the bill.”

Obama is trying to undermine America.
WRONG STUPID! The Tea Party Republicans are the American equivalent to the Muslim Brotherhood trying to impose their own narrow values on the rest of us and wasting time and taxpayer money on legislation that's doomed to failure. Meanwhile our infrastructure is rapidly deteriorating with roads in disrepair, bridges that are structurally unsound and water systems that leak more water than they carry and let pathogens into our drinking water. They don't have any allegiance to this country but to corporate plutocrats who want to control and privatize everything so that they can line their pockets.

The "questions" are the left's employment of a tactic used by the right, most notably by Glenn "I'm just asking the question" Beck.

The answers are out there. The risks being questioned are the same risks associated with any genetic alteration. Beefsteak tomato anyone?

"To date world-wide there have been no verifiable untoward toxic or nutritionally deleterious effects resulting from the cultivation and consumption of products from GM crops."

Who cares?

The real news you Obama supporting communists do NOT want to talk about is:

1 - The Libya fiasco where Obama & Clinton screwed up big time and Americans died (actually, were left to die).

2 - The IRS Scandal where Obama & his cronies (Democrats) abused that power of government targeting Americans and denying them their rights and trying to destroy people for political purposes. This is a new low in the history of American government that extended into other government agencies as well.

3 - The Snowden scandal where even the NY Times stated the Obama ahs lost all credibility

4 - Just a couple days ago, Obama took the extreme step of postponing a key provision of his signature legislation (oBOZOcare, AKA, The Unaffordable Heath Care Act).

5 - Jobs, it's all about jobs, commie.

You are a bigger liar than Roy Blunt, at least he admitted to putting the 'Monsanto Rule ' into the Food Appropriations Bill --he had to finally admit it since he was the leader of the republican fight to block its repeal.Typical tea party corrupt politician--won't accept responsibility for his own wrongful actions .

If you were really what you say your are you'd be libertarian and be just as pissed off at the phony teabaggers as I am.

But you are NOT what you say you are as evidenced by your racist, right-wing posts.

The Big Lie: Separation of Church & State
Separation of Church and State was in the Soviet Union’s Communist constitution, but not in the U.S. Constitution. See this outstanding lecture by Dr. Andy Woods — about 70 minutes — that shows why and how incorporation of the ‘Separation’ lie has been erroneously insinuated into our U.S. legal, legislative and executive culture.

However, the reality is the teabagger Idaho Legislature isn't really concerned with liberty and obviously haven't been Taxed Enough Already:

Pretty sure I'm to blame for the obsession about Fox since I happen to like O'Reilly and haven't been shy about saying so.

Been an O'Reilly Factor fan for more than a decade though - almost since the very beginning.

Don't watch much other Fox shows either - maybe once in a while or when it's a special event being covered.

Slavery, Indian Mistreatment, Japanese Internment Camps...so much of America's darker history is only historical awareness to me and not a source of guilt. Yes, there are shameful and unfortunate events in the histories of ALL countries but future generations need not share any guilt for them. Why should they when they did not participate or condone it?
Should a 20 year old German continue to be blamed and held guilty for the Third Reich? Should a 10 year old Spaniard girl or 18 year old Mexican boy be held responsible for the Conquistadors' genocide of Central and South American Natives today?
The Race Card and the constant chest-beating over the American Indian histories has been held over the heads of good, hardworking and innocent Americans long enough and needs to stop.
Yes, I've read of the horror stories of both slavery and indigenous peoples. I've felt a deep spiritual connection with Indian world-views toward Nature and Mother Earth. Yeah, I saw Roots.
But I am not guilty and I am not responsible for those actions of people 200 - 300 - even 400 years ago. It simply is what it is and the Jesse Sharptons can all go to hell for all I care. They have sucked, shucked and extorted enough money, pain and misery for generations to come.
George Zimmerman knows this well. Paula Deen knows it. Qualified non-blacks refused entrance to universities know it. The Ronald Goldman family knows this. The families of Korean shop owners murdered in the LA riots know this.
The black racial hypocrisy has hurt America deeply.
It's certainly not something we should dwell over. With the exception of the Indians which was definitely a tragic black mark on our history, unlike much older countries, we at least try to right our wrongs or, if that isn't possible, acknowledge them with regret.

There's nothing anyone can do about their own country's past atrocities. Generations and changing times replace those responsible and the reasons why it happened.

It's just easier for some who feel they have reason to hold a grudge to keep holding onto it while others are able to let it go, put it into perspective and realize, as in the racial issue, more whites were not - and still are not - racists, many died to end slavery indigenous to one part of the country over 200 years ago, and those reasons have long since faded away along with that part of our history.

Racial and ethnic tensions exist everywhere - in the Middle East between Shiites and Sunnis - Jews and Arabs - Muslims and Christians - Muslims and Europe - and even between people of the same race for political or social differences.

The racial tensions in our own country are predominantly self-manufactured by those who keep it alive for political purposes.

There are always going to be people who don't like anyone who don't look and act just like them - the color of their skin, their ethnicity or their religion - and for blacks in this country to keep blaming this generation for the atrocities of the past or believe they are the only people here or anywhere who are discriminated against because of ignorance or self-pride or irrational fear, you're right, is like beating a dead horse.

The past is dead and should be buried and left alone. Only it's lessons should remain and accepting we don't live in a perfect world with perfect people and we never will.

Taxing corporations is a ridiculous concept. It should be ZERO.

What happens when you tax corporations? They put the cost of the tax into the price of their products. Which in turn is paid by the consumers-- living, breathing people.

I know, I know, you want to tax the hell out of fat, bald, white, middle-aged Evil Rich CEO's. And you think taxing the corporations they run will accomplish that. It won't. We have the second highest corporate income tax in the world (second only to Japan), yet do you see CEO's hurting?

All it accomplishes is making our businesses less competitive. And more corrupt-- if a company like General Electric can get their CEO Immelt to suck up to Lord Obama, PRESTO! They get a special exemption, no taxes. It's called Cronie Capitalism.

You want it to be fair? Make taxes 15% ACROSS THE BOARD for all individuals, regardless of income. No exemptions, no deductions. No charitible deductions. No union dues deductions. No discrimination between whether the money came from investments or driving a forklift. The cost of around a QUARTER MILLION IRS EMPLOYEES could be slashed, as the majority of them could be laid off. Tax accountants, tax lawyers, CPA's-- all would have to find something productive to do.

Taxing corporations is a brilliant way for a bureaucrat-breeding politician to bury the true cost of gubbermint. You THINK you pay only 28% tax, while everything you buy contains tax in the price. It's the smartest way for politicians to dupe the public since the payroll deduction started during WWII. People don't seem to notice the "GROSS" amount on their checks. Better for the gubbermint.
