The problem is that this Initiative does not solve the problem. Out of state Special Interest groups wrote it and got a lot of sheeple to go along with it. I am not a big corporate farm, far from one. If you bought a product that I produced and thought that it should have the labeling I would have to pay to prove that it does not require the labeling. After I proved it I would still have to pay the court cost. Not you. This is a trial Lawyers Dream Initiative.
Great letter! Thank you Mr. DeWitt.
I want people like Linda to stop telling me how to farm and with what. Roundup is safe! I use it as a tool just like any other piece of equipment I have. Are you scared of a Combine or Tractor? If you understood you would not be so angry and scared.
Paco, I would love for you to come see the farm. It would be interesting to hear about youre familys farms in Puerto Rico. I dont mind labeling, but this initiative has far to many exemptions. For example a Pizza sold at a grocery store would need to be labeled but one bought and delevered would not. I would think that they should both reqire the same labeling. Many of my organic faming friends dont care for this initiative.
Funny how the fear mongers are for this initiative. No where in it is Monsanto, or Roundup mentioned, or DuPont! As a farmer I understand how G.M.O.s and Herbicides work. We change the type of herbicide every year or two to combat resistance, and here is a newsflash, we are using ounces per acre of these products. And they are not Trans located to the seed. For instance all Roundup does is turn off the pants ability to Photosensitize. There are more harmful carcinogens in one of your morning cups of coffee than in a full day of eating G.M.O. products. I wish Norm and Paco would have read the Initiative before making such foolish statements. By the way I would be more than happy for both of you to come visit my farm to see how it is really done. You might learn something.
No test, just wanted to know. yes I have heard of them. Have you heart of JTI and Pape machinery?
Name them please.
Right on Nat! Why does anyone want to work hard to get ahead only to have it all taken?
No the president does not set gas prices, however his policies affect the price of gas. You can thank Barney Frank and Chris Dodd for the housing colaps. That is a fact! They decided that everyone deservs a house. It did not matter if you could afford it or not.
