Hey, America! It's First Lady Michelle Obama and I had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner made from organic vegetables that we grew ourselves in the White House's garden. I hope you all tried to eat healthier, too, because healthier eating is my personal platform. Even though most of the country can't even find foods that aren't genetically modified any more. And my husband appointed a former Monsanto big-wig Michael Taylor to a senior position at the FDA, in a disgraceful fox-guarding-the-hen-house scenario. Working in tandem with Monsanto, the government has almost succeeded preventing the need to label which foods contain what. It's a good thing that most of you are more concerned about my bangs than being forced to eat Frankenfoods. But look on the bright side--the economy is so pitiful that most of you couldn't afford organic vegetables if they were available in your area and properly labelled. Another broken campaign promise in which corporations win out over average people brought to you by my husband.
SEATTLEORGANICRESTAURANTS: "During the 2008 presidential campaign Obama mentioned that the public had the right to know if their foods are genetically modified. Now four years later, GMOs are banned in 27 different countries but the biotech industry and FDA don’t even acknowledge that there is any difference in genetically modified foods compared to traditional foods. It’s pretty amazing how Michelle Obama, the first lady, launches a campaign to fight childhood obesity and digs up the White House front lawn to plant an organic vegetable garden and on the other hand her husband shakes hands with biotech industry and appoints, Mike Taylor, the former VP and attorney of Monsanto, as FDA deputy commissioner."
Michelle Obama insisted, during Obama's presidential campaign in 2008, that their family has been on organic diet for the past few years. Yet President Obama has made no efforts to lead America towards healthier food production with temporary halt to GMO foods while conducting a comprehensive research study of its long term side effects. In fact, he has not even made any attempts to simply label GMO to protect babies, pregnant women and those with chronic diseases. Activists, minorities, women and the young who voted for Obama hoped that his policies will be different than George W Bush. During Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, his supporters got the signals that Obama will make a real difference and start reform by putting the demands of the average American ahead of few corporate elites."
