Why do I say dirty? Well, it beats what I’m really thinking :o) Not to mention, puts him in the proper “I can easily be bought” category, where this one obviously belongs.
I, and thousands of others sent our dear local senators and representatives a letter regarding PROPER labeling of GMO’s (aka: genetically modified food). And this is the response I received…
“Dear Mr. Buck:”
Editors note: First, I’m MRS. Buck, NOT Mr…good grief.
“Thank you for contacting me regarding the safety of our nation’s food supply. I appreciate having the benefit of your comments on this matter.”
“As you may know, the United States has the safest and most plentiful food supply in the world. Both the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Agriculture oversee food safety and regulate facilities that process food.”
Editors note: And they’re doing a BANG UP job allowing POISONS, contaminants AND NOW, GMO fish added to the loooong list of harmful additives!
“Despite our regulatory safeguards, nationwide recalls of contaminated food still occur. I recognize the importance of protecting our food supply while avoiding excessive regulation of legitimate commerce. For these reasons, I support sensible reforms to our food-safety inspection system that would make it easier for food processors to eliminate contamination risks.”
Editors note: Excuse my French, but, WHAT THE HELL DOES FOOD INSPECTION (OR CONTAMINATION) HAVE TO DO WITH ALLOWING HARMFUL GMO FOODS TO BE GROWN AND KEEPING CONSUMERS IN THE DARK REGARDING WHAT THEY ARE PUTTING INTO THEIR BODIES! Talk about side-stepping the issue!
“I am honored to represent Texas in the United States Senate, and you may be certain that I will keep your suggestions in mind as food safety is discussed during the 113th Congress. Thank you for taking the time to contact me.”
Editors note: If HE is represented us…we’re screwed. Plain and simple.
United States Senator
