For those who remember, I spoke some time ago about how I fed my geese GMO corn for a winter, and the following breeding season, they were aggressive, fighting all the time, and wouldn’t sit a nest for long. One female had 2 babies, but lost both. One was physically deformed. I realized that the corn I was feeding was GMO, and started them on free-ranging, supplementing with beardless barley hay.

Well, this year we have 17 new babies! All three females of breeding age sat nests and hatched babies. No fighting, and everything is normal in the goose kingdom. There is hope. So far it looks like my geese have made a full recovery. Here is a recent pic of one family crossing the field:

AMERICAN POLITICS WITH JOHN WALLACE – RADIO SHOW

NEXT SHOW – THIS FRIDAY – MAY 14TH –  at 5:00PM

GUEST: “MARTI OAKLEY – FOOD SAFETY AND ATTACKS ON FAMILY FARMS

My guest this week is Marti Oakley, a farm and food activist, who will be talking about the dangers associated with genetically modified food and crops. She will also provide some very valuable insight into food labeling and S-510, the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010 as well as the federal government’s relentless and unconstitutional attack on family farms and ranches. If you are concerned about your Liberty, Freedoms and what you eat, you are encouraged to call in.

If you have specific questions or an opinion of the subject, please call the show while it is on the air (646-200-0326) and/or email your questions or opinions to me from the Chat Room and I will read them on the air.

Farm Wars

As we approach what will be a landmark decision for those of us in an agricultural belt whose main crop is alfalfa, I offer this one plea on behalf of reason, before the final verdict is in:

An Appeal for Common Sense to prevail in the case of Monsanto v. Geertson Seed Farms, No. 09-475, in which Judge Clarence Thomas is presiding.

Come on Clarence, we know you can do it! You can make the right decision and uphold the ban on genetically modified (GM) alfalfa. The question is, do you want to? After years of bowing to your GM masters, can you make the leap and strike a blow for food freedom?

Any thinking person knows that genetic modification allowed to spread uncontrolled is harmful to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And just how long do you think it will take for the unbridled scourge of anti-biotic resistance given to us by the genetic engineering process itself, to affect someone in your family? The growth of bacteria is exponential! Or, if you are not planning on being around for that, or feel you are sufficiently protected from having to eat what we the people eat, then by all means support Monsanto, just like the Federal Government does:

In its brief on the merits in support of Monsanto, the federal government similarly argues that the Ninth Circuit erred in establishing a presumption of irreparable harm in NEPA cases.” (Scotus)

And don’t fall for that genetic modification as the new “cure for world hunger” baloney. Any thinking person knows that this is merely a good propaganda buzz phrase used for advertising. Genetic modification has nothing to do with curing hunger, but rather everything to do with increasing the bottom line.

The question is, Clarence, WHAT WILL YOU DO?

(NaturalNews) Drug and chemical giant Bayer AG has admitted that there is no way to stop the uncontrolled spread of its genetically modified crops.

“Even the best practices can’t guarantee perfection,” said Mark Ferguson, the company’s defense lawyer in a recent trial.

Two Missouri farmers sued Bayer for contaminating their crop with modified genes from an experimental strain of rice engineered to be resistant to the company’s Liberty-brand herbicide. The contamination occurred in 2006, during an open field test of the new rice, which was not approved for human consumption. According to the plaintiffs’ lawyer, Don Downing, genetic material from the unapproved rice contaminated more than 30 percent of all rice cropland in the United States. READ MORE…

An Organic Amicus brief has been filed in support of the Center for Food Safety’s case against Monsanto’s Supreme Court appeal of the lower court-ordered injunction against the selling of GM alfalfa. Monsanto seeks to overturn the lower court ruling that prohibits the company from selling its seed, due to the court’s concerns about the adverse effects of widespread GMO contamination. The judge in that case has required USDA to “take a hard look” at the contamination issue before granting the deregulation of GM alfalfa. This “hard look” is intended to be contained in the final environmental impact statement (EIS) that USDA released for public comment in December of 2009. USDA is now in the process of reviewing and preparing its response to public comments as a basis for issuing a final EIS and for deciding whether and/or under what conditions it will deregulation GM alfalfa.

Global Status of Approved Genetically Modified Plants

All of the information contained within this document is based on data obtained from our global database of genetically modified plants. As indicated elsewhere, the reader should be aware that this database includes not only plants produced using recombinant DNA techniques (e.g., genetically engineered or transgenic plants), but also plants with novel traits that may have been produced using more traditional methods, such as accelerated mutagenesis or plant breeding. These latter plants are only regulated in Canada.

Crops and Traits

The following table provides a listing of novel traits by crop species. In each case, the number of events with a particular trait is also provided. For additional information on each crop x trait combination, follow the relevant link under the “Crop Name” column.
