Supreme court ruling in favor of GM alfalfa, Kucinich to the rescue?

t's a sign of the times that the supreme court sides with the CORPORATIONS.  Crooks in robes with NO respect for human life.
I was glad to see that Ohio Rep. Dennis Kucinich announced that he would introduce three bills to provide for regulation of all genetically engineered plants, animals, bacteria and other organisms:

Kucinich Announces Right to Know Legislation in Wake of Alfalfa Supreme Court Ruling
Washington, Jun 21 –
Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-OH), a long-time advocate of family farmers and organic foods, today made the following statement after the Supreme Court voted 7-1 to allow the experimental planting of genetically modified alfalfa seed before an environmental review is completed:
“Today the Supreme Court ruled that when it comes to genetically modified organisms, we as consumers, have to wait until the damage is done and obvious, before we can act to protect health and the environment, even if that damage could be irreversible.
“Haven’t we learned from the catastrophe in the Gulf of the dangers of technological arrogance, of proceeding ahead with technologies without worrying about the consequences? Why do we continue to throw precaution to the wind?
“Tomorrow I will introduce three bills this week that will provide a comprehensive regulatory framework for all Genetically Engineered (GE) plants, animals, bacteria, and other organisms. To ensure we can maximize benefits and minimize hazards, Congress must provide a comprehensive regulatory framework for all GE products. Structured as a common-sense precaution to ensure GE foods do no harm, these bills will ensure that consumers are protected, food safety measures are strengthened, farmers’ rights are better protected and biotech companies are responsible for their products,” said Kucinich.

Kucinich is one of the few legislators I respect and I believe to be sincere.  However, I was very disappointed when Obama was able to get Kucinich to change his vote on the health care legislation (big pharma and insurance bail-out).
I'll try to find some more info about co-sponsors and details about the legislation to post here.  Kucinich asks:

Haven’t we learned from the catastrophe in the Gulf of the dangers of technological arrogance, of proceeding ahead with technologies without worrying about the consequences? Why do we continue to throw precaution to the wind?

The answer is obvious:  Of course not.  The morons in the gulf states DEMAND that deep sea drilling continues.
Sometimes I really wonder whether it wouldn't be best for the planet if humans eradicated themselves BEFORE destroying the planet.  Leave a viable planet for some truly intelligent life to evolve.
Here we are, the veggies and trees are growing, we're having all these plans for building and we love living in the Joshua Tree desert just about as far away from pollution as possible, but no matter where you live, you can't just “do your thing” and NOT be impacted.

arry GM pollen for MILES.  We probably won't be planting yellow corn anymore because even organics are most likely contaminated.  Hopefully red and blue varieties will remain uneffected.
Chem trails are dumping aluminum or whatever metals and toxins on our gardens and polluting our air, but I suppose we should be grateful that it's not OIL.
Speaking of air quality, with the exception of a few local TV stations near the gulf and alternative news sites, I don't see much about the AIR QUALITY in the gulf.   Obama turned out to be worse than Bush, who is only responsible for killing thousands of first responders with false claims of “safe air”.
Time will show how many people in the gulf states will die from the toxic disbursement agent COREXIT, benzene and other known carcinogens in the air — I suspect many more than after 9/11.
My sister in Germany packed up her family after Chernobyl and she moved to Portugal, one of the countries she could drive to in a few days and not be subjected to radiation contamination.
Much of Europe STILL has food restrictions and wild boar are still glowing:

Food restrictions

Twenty four years after the catastrophe, restriction orders remain in place in the production, transportation and consumption of food contaminated by Chernobyl fallout. In the UK, they remain in place on 369 farms covering 750 km² and 200,000 sheep. In parts of Sweden and Finland, restrictions are in place on stock animals, including reindeer, in natural and near-natural environments. “In certain regions of Germany, Austria, Italy, Sweden, Finland, Lithuania and Poland, wild game (including boar and deer), wild mushrooms, berries and carnivorous fish from lakes reach levels of several thousand Bq per kg of caesium-137″, while “in Germany, caesium-137 levels in wild boar muscle reached 40,000 Bq/kg. The average level is 6,800 Bq/kg, more than ten times the EU limit of 600 Bq/kg”, according to the TORCH 2006 report. The European Commission has stated that “The restrictions on certain foodstuffs from certain Member States must therefore continue to be maintained for many years to come“.[6]  [emphasis added]

In the US, you can't go anywhere and not be subjected to GM contamination.  The Europeans are doing a MUCH better job keeping GM foods prohibited, although Germany's chancellor Merkel recently also allowed “test” fields of GM plants in Germany.
Anything for a buck, or a euro.
I'll go back to more pleasant activities now because this is downright depressing.  I understand that most people do NOT want to be bothered with scary reality and they sure don't want to DO anything about it.  And that's WHY the politicians and corporate execs get away with murder.
And I hope that the people in the gulf states will pack up and leave — better safe than sick or dead.
