gmoI wrote about the free trade agreement between the US and Colombia before and how I thought it wasn’t the great idea everybody was talking about. It had a hidden agenda and speaking of hidden agendas look what the Koch brothers and their close friend Monsanto are trying to do know. They want Congress to pass a law so they don’t have to mark their products as containing GMOS (Genetically Modified Organisms) in other words when you go to the store you won’t know what you buying to put in your body. Now Jeff and I are far from being heath freaks or even just health conscience but if GMOs are so great why does Monsanto have to force countries to use them and then hide the fact that a food product contains them. I don’t know how many other trade agreements the US have with other countries where they require the farmers to use only Monsanto seeds. But I do know we are not altruistic country and that we don’t make deals where someone isn’t making a great deal of money from it. Some of my friends up in the US are going to a march in New York City on May 24 to try and stop this there are also online petitions from several groups everything from labeling to a complete a ban. I don’t know about a complete ban I will say this you should be able to choose. On the other side of the coin I know that something will eventually have to be done or the world will face over population and starvation. It won’t bother me and Jeff but it will bother Hari Jeff’s grandchild as well as your grand Children so know would be a good time to stop talking and star doing. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
