Monsanto ruling

Postby Babeinbucland » Wed Mar 15, 2017 7:55 pm

This is a start but as long as we have Governor Voldermort in power, we will all continue to be poisoned

http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-r ... story.html

judge has ruled that California can require Monsanto to label its popular weed killer Roundup as a possible cancer threat despite insistence from the agrochemical company that it poses no risk to people.

In January, Superior Court Judge Kristi Culver Kapetan tentatively dismissed a challenge by Monsanto and a citrus growers group. In her final ruling last week, the judge said that none of Monsanto's objections were viable, the Fresno Bee reported.

The company had sued the nation's leading agricultural producing state, saying California officials illegally used recommendations from an international health organization to make its decision to require the warning labels.

Monsanto's attorney, Trenton Norris, told the judge that the warnings would drive some customers away, hurting the company.

California regulators have said they relied on a finding by the France-based International Agency for Research on Cancer, considered a gold standard for cancer research.

Critics take issue with Roundup's main ingredient, glyphosate, which has no color or smell. Monsanto introduced it in 1974 as an effective way of killing weeds while leaving crops and plants intact.

It's sold in more than 160 countries, and farmers in California use it on 250 types of crops.

I remember this one time a guy I knew was totally into this girl. This was early on in high school. Maybe 10th grade. Anyway, it seemed like every other lunch we'd all get to listen to him go on about how hot she was or how funny she was or...whatever. You get the point. It got to the point I'd sit with different groups. Anyway...they actually ended up hooking up and then, right after, she completely blew him off. And, if you thought he talked about her too much before? He became absolutely insufferable. Now every single negative thing in the world could somehow be related to her. Most of us stopped talking to that kid before the end of that year. I imagine, to this day, he's still sitting in his car, listening to Motley Crue, crying, and cursing her name.

You remind me of that guy.

You could have gone with "Falcons Fan" and actually been funny. Instead, you went the predictable GOP Dad Joke route. Next, you'll be telling us about how fat your wife is. Let me guess...she spends all your money?

It'd probably have been easier to get some rulings against Monsanto before this if your boy Obama didn't appoint Michael Taylor, a former Monsanto VP and Monsanto lobbyist, to Deputy Commissioner for Foods for the FDA.

You can't stop talking about how terrible Trump is but never acknowledged the fact that Obama didn't give a **** about poisoning us. This is why no one takes you serious. It's all partisan for you.

Monsanto has leveraged it's power on our government over the decades so badly they get whatever they want. It's sickening and Delt is 100% correct that this should NEVER be partisan issue at all.

How does your lame story of a poor guy pining for some girl, only to be dissed, and then becoming "absolutely insufferable" NOT ring like a Hillary supporter?

Peraonally, I thought it was hilariously accurate.












Falcons fan??? Lol.

Because a Hillary Supporter would probably be crying while listening to Sarah McLaughlin sing about homeless dogs. They wouldn't be crying to some artificial harmonics in their 87 Trans Am.

Wow. You guys ARE an insufferable bunch. Lol

I certainly didn't mean to stir up the idiot nest... but it is hilarious, if not oddly gratifying, to see how quickly some of you want to move on from Hillary. ;)
