Monsanto's Deadly 'Moron' Strategy

Dear Organic Consumer,
What happens when weeds and insects evolve into superweeds and superbugs? And refuse to die when doused with Monsanto's toxic poisons?
Enter Monsanto's dump "More On" Strategy. 
More herbicides. More insecticides. Each one more toxic than the next.
I have always believed that consumers hold the key to ending Monsanto's "Moron Strategy." 
We do it by forcing states to pass mandatory GMO labeling laws. Which in turn will force Big Food to replace GMO ingredients with non-GMO alternatives.
Can you help us raise another $165,000 by September 15, to support critical GMO labeling campaigns in November in Oregon, Colorado and other states? Details on how to donate online, by phone or by email here. 
It isn't just Monsanto that's escalating the "Moron Strategy."
Dow's new GMO corn and soy varieties are engineered to withstand massive amounts of a new herbicide concocted from a combination of glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup, and 2,4-D, one of the chemicals used in the deadly Vietnam-era "Agent Orange" herbicide.
The EPA has already approved the new "Deadly Duo" herbicide. And the USDA—over the objections of more than 50 members of Congress and hundreds of thousands of citizens—is expected any day now to approve the crops it will be sprayed on. 
Why approve this new "Deadly Duo?" Because the millions of pounds of glyphosate and 2,4-D herbicides already being sprayed on GMO crops aren't working anymore.
It would be great if the FDA and USDA would protect consumers from the madness of Monsanto's "Moron" Strategy.
But instead, our government agencies are intent on protecting only one thing: corporate profits.
In fact last year, the FDA actually raised the limit of glyphosate residue allowed on your fruits and vegetables—despite several new studies exposing glyphosate's toxicity. 
According to one of those studies, glyphosate is "insidious and manifests slowly over time, as inflammation damages cellular systems throughout the body… it may in fact be the most biologically disruptive chemical in our environment." 
Only a moron would want to use more, not less, of the "most biologically disruptive chemical in our environment," right?
Your donation will help us keep the movement to push for state GMO labeling laws strong. Please help us reach our goal of $250,000 by September 15. Click here for details on how to donate online, or by phone or email. 
Thank you!
