Monsanto and Tyson Foods just erased the comment. But Thanks, PCScipio. I’m used to their antics by now.

Guess I’ll have to say it again: 43 million dollars in a single election cycle to block a food-labeling bill because the labeling would cost them….. ‘millions.’

Anybody else see dodgy here?

I actually live in CA and I want GMO foods with big bold labels. While it will hopefully pan out that GMO foods pose little or no risk, the way pollen gets blown around I would prefer to know what these turkeys are up to. Brown has such a mess that Prop 30 gets a NO as well. We actually STILL have a clown taking over $500,000 each year from a CalPERS pension after being an administrator in a piddly little town, and thousands more on an unweildly pension system. Even the most liberal would have a problem with this. I pity the rest of this country because my mother-in-law always said that what happened in California spelled the future for the rest.

Am I the only one who thinks that these referenda somehow are inconsistent with Art. IV, sect. 4 of the Constitution?

Texas oil corporations have been gouging Californians and the California economy for years by charging excessive, gasoline prices. It is time that these corporations started to give something back. The $1 billion per year should be spent in California. Vote “Yes” on Prop 39.
