The Union of Concerned Scientists provides a contact tool with which to tell USDA Secretary Mike Johanns to ban the outdoor production of food crops for use in pharmaceutical and/or industrial products. Why? Because our best science suggests that genetically-engineered food crops will wind up seriously damaging our food supply. Wouldn't it be conservative to prevent corporations from trying to effect such radical change on our food supply so quickly? And to think that Mike Johanns, former governor of Nebraska, could be in the U.S. Senate right now but for the fact that he went to work for Mr. Bush in 2005. I mean, the man couldn't even think long-term about his own self-interest.
Now we normally don't bother too much with what the New York Times says, but when they're getting something dead wrong about us, then we gotta act. The Times apparently thinks that Senator Barack Obama told "anti-war activists" to stop protesting military funerals. Thing is, he didn't, and we ain't -- but Fred Phelps's Westboro Baptist Church has been protesting at military funerals for some time, because they don't like gays and they don't like "don't ask, don't tell." Read about some of the signs they're bringing to their little demonstrations, too; they're quite sick. How dare the New York Times confuse me with one of these nutjobs! And you can tell them the same by scrolling to the bottom of the above link.
