Dems pass Monsanto anti real food act

The corporate US House of Lords, aka Senate, passed Big Agra's "Food Safety and Modernization Act" which aims to further impede the natural agriculture resurgence while shielding the real sources of food contamination, factory animal farms. Count BOTH Colorado Dems among the corrupt legislators who I guess pretend they don't know better. Yes, Senator Mark Udall and newly entrenched incumbent Michael Bennet. Here's the full list of DP-led Monsanto/ADM shills, courtesy of Natural News. 20664

Meanwhile, at the D.C. Pig-Ranch….

The Pentagoons, meanwhile back in DC, are expecting another 37 BILLION dollars to fall into their pockets. Telling the Senate House, it got kicked back to the House after modifications by the Senate, that not giving them more of their Purina PIG Chow would be treason and the betrayal of “the Troops” about whom the Pentagon and other warmongers care Not One Damned Bit in the first, second, third and all the way to the Last place. The Senate House vote is expected by this afternoon, and it’s already almost noon in Washing Tundy Sea. Will the Senate do the patriotic thing, for the first time in like, forever? Or will they do what the War Industry Lobbyists pay them to do and fork over more bread? My prediction is that the Manufacturers of guns, bullets, grenades, rockets, trench-knives, uniforms, shrouds, coffins and Funerary Flags are going to be treating their Tame SenatorsRepresentatives to steak and lobster dinners tonight. Meanwhile the TeaBags are out screaming about proposed increases in Health Care and more oversight of the Banking and Investment "industries", neither of which has actually taken place yet. But not one word against the War. 19215

US Senate represents Insurance, Israel

Are you represented by a US senator? I doubt it. Today the Senate Finance Committee rejected Public Option amendments to the health care reform legislation; continued to vilify ACORN based on fraudulent accusations hyped the MSM; and thirty two senators signed a letter drafted by AIPAC, to urge Secretary of State Clinton to block further investigation of Israel for its crimes in Gaza based on the findings of the Goldstone Report.   Abolish the Senate! Does America have any use for a House of Lords? 9460

Al Franken in the house bada boom

Al Franken has no sooner reached Washington, that he's fulfilling his comedic promise, no small thing. At the Judge Sotomayor confirmation hearing, Franken framed his parting question thus: he too was a Perry Mason fan, could Judge Sotomayor name the lone case which the television barrister famously lost? Giggles all around. 8223

Rod Blagojevich a Great American Hero

Deposed Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich earns my nomination for great American hero. What hyperbolic laurels would fit a loudmouth buffoon? Be fair. Blagojevich brought the media spotlight to an overlooked exploit of American political cronyism: a governor's solitary prerogative to appoint national legislators. Alright, Blago didn't mean to. But if the little Dutch boy had stuck his Rod Blagojevich into the dike, instead of his finger, would the little pervert be any less a hero? 6536

The league of Southern Gentlemen cons

DC- Look at the old ambulance chasers!   Senator Ted Kennedy was EMT'd out of the inaugural luncheon, seen off by concerned friends Senators Kerry, Dodd and Hatch. Wait a minute -- Senator Orrin MoFo Hatch?! Has the DC mutual admiration society no standard? 6189

Is Roland Burris a GOP Senate ringer?

Is there more to senator-aspirant Roland Burris being turned away in DC, than political theater? Illinois governor Blagojevich was caught asking for payola to decide the appointment. Did he get the money? Without asking, the DC Dems are acting like the unassuming Mr. Burris is the pay-to-play golden ticket holder. I suspect the undistinguishing features which allay our suspicions about the septuagenarian may be the very traits which interest his sponsors.   In boxing, it's called a ringer. 5938

Stop the Senate of would-be thieves!

Call your Band of Thieving Senators now to tell them you don't want to give $700 Billion --more honestly likely to be $5 Trillion-- to the robber bankers of Wall Street! Telephone Colorado Senators Ken Salazar at 202.224.5852 and Wayne Allard at 202.224.5941 NOW. Why not call OBAMA too! (phone: 202-224-2854) Tell them you want them to consult with at least ONE economist of repute! At least one analyst not on the corporate payroll. As he promised yesterday, Michael Moore suggests a 10 PART PLAN, only IF pressure can be brought to bear right now to stop the Senate bill. 4961

What kind of idiot do they take you for?

In the hands of Republicans, the filibuster seems to be a silver bullet. They used it today without firing a shot. The Democratic majority wanted to fashion some legislation, but lacked the 60 votes to stop a filibuster. As a result, no go. It now takes 60% of the Senate to pass a bill, where it used to take the Republicans only 51%. What's going on here? 2570
