Congress: A Den of Thieves

In  regards to the dangers of GMO (genetically modified) food, nukes (either armaments or energy), and fossil fuels that are warming the planet, the den of thieves in the U.S. Congress, with a handful of exceptions, are doing exactly the opposite of what should be done in responding to these crises, and in fact strengthening the corporate grip in bringing about catastrophes that have already contaminated the Gulf of Mexico with chemicals, like corexit, and the Pacific Ocean with the most onerous kinds of nuclear waste, in the last two years, and threatening even more fiascos.

The GMO food experiment in the nation is the biggest guinea pig laboratory in history and must be stopped in its tracks. You can be reasonably sure that the biotech executives that have sprung this poison pill upon us are not eating the same food as commoners and that they are hypocritically buying the much more expensive organic foods for themselves and their families. They care not a whit about the far away future, but only about the span of their individual lives, and most of all, the profits that they make from shaking the foundations of the natural world order to the depths of ruination. Pretending to be gods, playing with the seeds of the earth and spreading them around the world, is the same thing as playing with Mother Nature, which makes the shady Monsanto Corporation and their cohorts one of the greatest threats to the survival of humanity. The den of thieves in the bought-off Congress can not so much as mandate labeling, let alone ban this monstrosity of GMO experimentation, which involves manipulating natural plant genes and invading common agricultural practices with an untested, unnatural and inhuman science that has already been shown to deterioate the health of mammals. A dangerous science that has contaminated the food stock of most of the United States and much of the world. The Europeans have too much sense to allow this mostly unregulated science to become widespread in their land.

Post-script: Anti-GMO in Food Expert Jeffrey Smith's Website is very informative.

Next Essay: Congress and their policies on Nukes (coming soon in Commoner)

The Lieutenant Governor has only one official duty and that is to preside over the State Senate, therefore Mark will study the Robert's Rules of Order. If elected, in unofficial duties, Mark will concentrate on emergency management in a state that is susceptible to earthquakes, and one having the Hanford nuclear waste debacle on its hands, and one nuclear power plant. We must learn from the Japan crisis earlier this year, and begin to phase out nuclear energy altogether and transform to solar, wind, geothermal and other non-nuclear and non-fossil fuel energy systems. Where to put the nuclear waste that has already been made will be a major headache for society even as we begin to phase out nuclear energy, but one we'll have to deal with. If elected, I will also be trying to phase out genetically modified food in Washington state by mandating labeling. People, generally, won't buy GMO food if it is labeled, which is why the shady Monsanto Corporation fights proposals for labeling so vigorously. Please, send an e-mail to to get a petition page (and anywhere from 2 - 10 signatures) that will get Mark on the ballot. Thanks.

If possible, please, consider contributing to campaign by sending a check or money order to Mark Greene for Lieutenant Governor Comm., P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. Also, Mark is depending on supporters to spread the word about the campaign to get around the media bias regarding non-establishment campaigns. Thank you! Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2011 and to call out names. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
