Jee-Sus ... too much and too long information there "Palo Alto Resident, a resident of the Charleston Gardens" ... but I agree with you.

I want the government to do something about Monsanto Abuses, and also Monsanto corruption of the government and the democratic process.

And I also want Monsanto to stop declaring war against life and releasing things into the environment that no one really knows what it will do over the long period of time ... EXCEPT THAT IT HAS ALREADY DONE THINGS THEY CLAIMED IT WOULD NOT, SUCH A MOVING INTO NATURE AND OTHER PEOPLE'S FARMS.

The very least and the very next think that should happen here - that needs to happen here is that we all need to get the right to know and to buy or not buy - to use our dollars to vote in the free market - products we either believe in or do not believe in.

Absolutely no one or no company should ever, ever have the right to keep ingredients from me about anything, or any other company about chemicals that will or may someday affect human beings - anywhere. God I am sick of the corporate arrogance and financial bulldozing we constantly get from our so-called financial sectors in America which do not seem to be able to exist without free handouts from state resources, free research from educational institutions, free money from the government, virtual monopolies, and not the ability to lie and coverup direct from the government - doing what it should not even have the right to do - and for no reason either.

If Monsanto has to go out of business of be broken up and sold to companies that will not do this - I don't care - I have read now for over a decade about this company's abuses, and I am sick of it!

I support the labeling initiative and very much hope it passes. I am very sick of Monsanto and other companies that have foisted bad, very harmful untested crops and foods on us.

Thank you, great! Tell everyone about this fight. We have to get 7 million signatures to pass. Post this on your Facebook pages, donate money to the cause, do everything and anything. The Monsanto and conglomerates have poured more than $30 million. Watch out for the tv ads from Monsanto with a farmer on it saying this bill is going to raise food costs.

We have to defeat Monsanto and gain our right to know what's in our food!

It's David v Goliath
