Are we going to continue to allow our personal liberties to be stripped from us even as industries that are in bed with our government continue to gross huge profits at the expense of our health? For a nation founded on liberty and considering the sacrifice made by many throughout our history to preserve these liberties, I am appalled.
In case you missed this new’s piece earlier this month, the Senate voted 65 to 32 against the right to know what is in your food. When is transparency ever a bad thing when it has to do with understanding what is in the food you eat, the water you drink, or perhaps the drugs you may take?
This particular piece of legislation is regarding GMO labeling. If GMO foods are so wonderful, why not let an educated public choose whether or not to eat these glorious Frankenstein creations?

Please let Al Franken know that you don’t want your child eating frankenfoods!
