USDA is fully deregulating Monsanto's GMO Alfalfa

There is no Democracy in USA!!!

BREAKING NEWS: USDA to Fully Deregulate Monsanto’s Genetically Engineer Alfalfa — Gene Contamination of Feed, Milk, Meat and Other Products to Follow… | Cornucopia Institute

This should never been approved and especially not deregulated with the environmental impact this will have and with this big of a majority of people opposing deregulation.

WTH! does anyone in the White House administration ever so just even slightly try to represent the People of this country?
It doesn't look like it.
It doesn't even matter anymore, who is in the White House, everyone who is calling the shots is in bed with the corporate lobby and big money business. Vilsack should never been appointed to this position. It's well known that he is on the side of Monsanto, we know exactly now who the USDA serves.
Profits in this country are going to be always over people because petitions and phonecalls/letters to politicians who value campaign dollars over consumer health and safety are useless. 
We "The People" have no voice in these matters anymore.

This is what we are up against

You might think, well I don't eat Alfalfa Sprouts, or I just stop eating the sprouts. But it will be not so easy to avoid GMO Alfalfa as you think.
It only will be a matter of time that the GMO Alfalfa will contaminate nearby organic crops, it will be in the feed for animals, even pastured, organic animals.
If your farmer feeds Alfalfa to his animals or lets them graze on alfalfa fields the milk you drink and beef you eat may be tainted with genetically modified, round resistant alfalfa. And it will contaminate you!

It also will probably destroy the honey bees which are so important for our food production.

This will be a difficult one to avoid, aside you stop eating meat and any dairy products. No more American made cheese, no more cream for cooking. Good bye French cream based sauces, Cheese sauce for your pasta. No more yogurt, butter. No more cappuccino with foamed milk.

Shame on you Obama! Shame on your Administration! Shame on you politicians who are supposed to represent the people.
You all have been selling us out.

If you want to tell Monsanto how you are feeling here is Monsanto's number: 314 694 1000
Call your President in the White House how disappointed you are,
call the USDA's Vilsack at 202-720-3631 or email him at and if you become a "fan" of USDA, you can go out to their Facebook fan page and tell them your piece of mind about approving and deregulating GMO Alfalfa.

I am getting so disgusted by the politics of this country that I really have to wonder what future this country holds for me. Do I really want the citizenship of a country that is that messed up? Do I want to grow old in a country that does not hear it's people?

Where any decision will be always about big business and money
and not about what makes this country, "The People" of this country,not big business, not the corporations and not the lobbyists waving their dollar signs!

I really, really am having big doubts!

Institute for Responsible Technology -

Monsanto is poisoning our world and any life which depends on what this earth offers. We just can't let them destroy our way of life.
It is criminal what they are doing and they need to be stopped!

Monsanto once claimed that Round-up would break down quickly in the soil, which courts in the US and Europe have proven is a flat out lie. Did you know Round-up after 28 days breaks only down 2%? Did you know that a study showed Round-up taking up to 22 years to degrade half its volume? Did you know that plant disease pathogens are rapidly increasing, killing the crops Round-up supposedly is supposed to grow better? Did you know that some of these plant pathogens can make you sick and are connected to the plaque epidemics in medieval Europe, cancers, blood diseases and other diseases? Did you know that Round-up is left in the feed, that is fed to cattle, chickens, pigs and it accumulates in their bodies, the meat you are eating?

Did you know the USDA is right now making decisions about approving Round-up ready Alfalfa?

If you are concerned about Monsanto poisoning this earth, animals and us you need to read this article above and then
Please tell USDA Secretary Vilsack not to approve Monsanto’s alfalfa today.

Blog vacation

I have had a hiatus from my blog for a while, because I had a hard time typing on my computer.
Some years ago I hurt my shoulder, when I was moving heavy book boxes after we moved to Oregon.  From time to time I hurt it again, especially if I do something I shouldn't do, like move heavy things which don't want to be moved or I should wait for my husband to move for me.
Like my little Fringe tree I was moving to the new garden area, which obviously resented getting moved after barely starting to grow and grabbed on to some old roots in the ground. Only after some good pulling all of a sudden the tree decided 'maybe it won't be so bad after all', let go of the roots it was holding on, giving me a big jolt back. My shoulder didn't like that, at all. Once it is inflamed  it makes it difficult to sit very long on the computer. Especially typing and using the mouse is really bad. So I had to take a rest from blogging.

By the way, the tree is very much fine, I think it likes it's new surrounding and settled right in, in its new home.

Now my shoulder is much better, even tough occasionally it flames up again forcing me to limit my computer use.
As soon my shoulder was getting a bit better, Christmas time came around the corner and with it my Christmas cookie extravaganza. Once this starts, there is hardly any time to spend time on my blog.
To tell the truth, it would be hard for me to tell you about gardening adventures, while my hands and head are covered in butter and flour, listening to Christmas music, mixing doughs, forming and decorating little sweet morsels.
                                        My Christmas baking kitchen set up

I admit, I am a Christmas cookie baking maniac. I do it only once a year, but then I go all out and bake for weeks, starting right after Thanksgiving. If I am lucky, I am done a few days before Christmas looking at my cookie tins filled with many varieties, each one different.

Rolling out cookie dough seems to also be one of the best physical therapies for my sore shoulder, so now my shoulder feels much better and I hope I will be able to keep sharing with you more frequently in this New Year.

Happy New Year to you all
