    And passed and amended by THIS Democratic controlled Senate and signed by our Democratic president. If you have a problem with the bill then you have to blame both sides.

    An individual garden. How about the farmers in this nation or the corporate farmers whose use of GMO Monsanto Corn dries up the soil?

    By lack of labeling, they intentionally uninform you. Without that knowledge, it is deceptive at best.

    I use heirloom or specified non-GMO seeds also.

    Amended enough to make it ineffective.

    Farmers don't have to use it. I know a wheat farmer that is very proud of seed he himself has developed for 30 years.

    Which is very difficult and costly and most farmers can't do that. Monsanto has built up what is very close to a monopoly on seeds, and most farmers can only buy from them.

    I support the labeling, because I want an informed public, but mainly I just don't want a ruthless private company to have that much power.
