GMO Alfalfa! Big Business Wins Again!

From the Atlantic:

On Thursday, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA) had approved the unrestricted planting of genetically modified alfalfa sold by Monsanto Co. and Forge Genetics, despite protests from organic groups and public health advocates and comments from nearly 250,000 citizens asking the department to keep this GMO genie in its bottle.

Monsanto and big business wins again! There’s no way to prevent cross-contamination, to restrict the GMO crops to a given area. It will be on our dinner plate one way or another.

Thank you Big Business, Big Government!
