It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we regret to inform you that late last night President Barack Obama signed H.R. 933, which contained the Monsanto Protection Act into law. This is an outrage that will not go unanswered.
While we are still waiting to hear from the administration all the final details, we understand at this time that Section 735, the Monsanto biotech rider is intact.
President Obama knowingly signed the Monsanto Protection Act over the insistence of more than 250,000 Americans who signed an urgent letter asking that he use his executive authority to veto H.R. 933 and send it back to Congress to remove the Monsanto Protection Act from the bill. Regretfully, President Obama failed to live up to his oath to protect the American people and our constitution

This bill is so dangerous and the average fool doesn’t even know about it.
He hasn't done so going on FIVE YEARS now!
These people are surprised.......why?
Oh please, they would rush to vote for him again if they could. Goldfish have a longer memory span than these idiots.
“Heres what Ill do as president... well let folks know whether their food has been genetically modified because Americans should know what theyre buying.”
What the heck is the Monsanto Protection Act?
Luddite tears are pretty much valueless.
$$$$$$$$$, as usual.
And Russia bans them to protect their people from cancer. Obama is on the WRONG SIDE AGAIN!!!
Russia Bans GMO Corn Over Cancer Fears as Pressure Builds on Monsanto
genetically modified foods???
maintain safety....then modify away.
now if we can only get zer0 to build nuclear power plants and the Canadian pipeline...
So many progressive/liberal/hippy/democrat voters/idiots talk about how bad Monsanto is and how it destroys and pollutes our food supplies.
Now Obama is on the bandwagon with what these people loathe. Bwahahahahahahaha
The 5 "Terrifying" things":
1. "The 'Monsanto Protection Act' effectively bars federal courts from being able to halt the sale or planting"...
Yeah, I'd love to see this language be upheld by ANY court, LOL. Judges always look for ways to block their own decisions. SMH
2. "The provision's language was apparently written in collusion with Monsanto... Sen. Roy Blunt, Republican of Missouri, actually worked with Monsanto on a provision"
This is not exactly a new phenomenon. Oooohh, can't you feel the TERROR!!
3. "Many members of Congress were apparently unaware that the 'Monsanto Protection Act' even existed within the bill they were voting on."
Again, nothing new. More non-terror.
4. "The President did nothing to stop it, either."
OMG!!! WE ARE ALL GONNA DIE!!! We stamped our little feet and the government didn't obey us! Waaaah!
5. "It sets a terrible precedent. Though it will only remain in effect for six months"...
Seriously, the full summary of the FIVE TERRIFYING THINGS is that it was written with language that will be utterly ineffective in a legal challenge, Monsanto was consulted, it passed, it passed, and it passed but is only effective for 6 months.
Once again, judging solely by the words of the opposition, I have zero problems with this bill now.
Biotech massaging Pharmatech
It's hard to see the real issue from inside your colon.
If you’re comfortable with fish DNA spliced into your produce or eating plants which produce their own pesticides then don’t worry.
Tons of cash will always speak louder in D.C. than ordinary Americans who are too busy to find out what’s going on.
How about Monsanto and DuPont ‘owning’ the food supply while in cahoots with our FedGov.
Isn't there a separation of powers issue with this?
