Monsanto threatens the sue the entire state of Vermont
Lawmakers in Vermont are looking to regulate food labels so customers can know which products are made from genetically modified crops, but agricultural giants Monsanto say they will sue if the state follows through.
If the bill in question, H-722 (the “VT Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act”) passes the state Senate and House, manufacturers will be required to label products that are created either partially or in full from a genetically modified organism, or GMO.
Such man-made crops have become a trademark of the billion-dollar Monsanto corporation, and in the past the company has gone to great lengths to keep themselves the number-one name in American agriculture, even if those profits are made possible from playing God.
The people of VT will not take this lyin down.

It's just my 2 cents,
Paka no hida
How the hell did we get to the point where a manufacturer could hold a county/country to ransom like they basically are doing?
Could you imagine any other producer getting away with this shit?
Because a lot of ex-Monsanto employees are now in important government positions or folks who used to work for the government now work for Monsanto.
