    I expected one to be on it but not the other. Sadly, I was wrong.

    Both my Senators are on the list. Levin is retiring though, so he probably will ignore me. I can talk to Gary Peters personally though. He is running to fill the seat in 2014. I talked with him on Tuesday night. Stabenow is actually one of the people who put up the farm bill, so not sure if she is just pro- farm, and is going along with this, so she isn't labeled anti-farmer. I'll have to send her an e-mail, telling her she has " sum splainin' ta do".

    Everybody whose senator is on the list needs to write a nasty letter. These people are supposed to be working for us, not Big Ag.

    It is illegal to grow GMO grain products in the state of Oregon. In fact, some was "found" over in Eastern Oregon and they're trying to get to the bottom of it... they don't know where it came from..

    Unfortunately not enough care or can afford to care and will eat what ever because they trust those in power to make honest decisions in both countries. Already Canada has allowed this, I mean if Washington DC drank out of the toilet bowl so would Canadian government members - tisk tisk on them ... I buy organic .. so far its safe, or is it ?????

    I like to know what is in my food. I have been growing heirloom vegetables that I raise from seeds. At least I know what I have.

    Both senators in my state (IL) voted against this. Not surprised. IL is controlled by Chicago politics where everything is "pay to play". If you give them enough money, they will side with you it seems. Makes me want to move sometimes, but then who is going to be left here to vote against these unfriendly policies?
