Petitions–Right To Know-Label GMOs + Chewing on Food Safety
WE CALIFORNIANS–WITH THE SUPPORT OF OUR FRIENDS IN OTHER STATES AND NATIONS–
AFFIRM WE HAVE A RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT IS IN OUR FOOD. WE WILL LABEL GMO FOODS NOV 6, 2012.
I See and Seed… the Greatest Grass Roots Movement in California History
“If commercial interests–once again– have convinced Congress–to do business as usual–and that profits are more important than our children having improved lunches in schools, if Congress has now said that a few tablespoons of tomato sauce define Pizza as a Vegetable, then we, as Conscious Consumers will Grow a Healthier Pizza through the action of the ‘7.5 Million + 2 Petition.’ To top off this pizza, we want to know the quality of our Ingredients. If pizza is made from cans and containers that have ingredients that are made with GMOs–Genetically Modified Organisms–We have a ‘Right To Know,’ and say “Label GMO’s!” just like people in near 50 other nations. Together now, the people of California–with support from people of other states and nations signing as well–will build the Greatest Grass Roots Movement in California History. We are ‘Sacred Seeds’ It is time now to ‘Win Back Our Sacred Seeds.’ ” –Leslie Goldman, Your Enchanted Gardener, Plant Your Dream Blog
Millions of Californians are without their knowledge eating GMOs every day. GMOs are Genetically Modified Organisms. They have been in our food for a number of decades. Somebody thought this was O.K. to include GMOs in the daily foods we eat, but did not take the time to ask us first if we wanted them there. Near 50 nations of the world have the integrity to give their people choice to know if they are eating GMOs in their corn, soy, and a host of other foods, but in the US, since the inception of the idea of the FDA in 1906, Commercial interests have placed profits over producing healthy kids and influenced heavily our food supply. Congress, in Fall 2011, declared that tomato sauce qualified Pizza as a vegetable to keep from the added expense of improving foods in our schools. Toward that end, we are coming together, bonding together, opening an honest Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Food about GMOs. We are here to educate ourselves, and our fellow Californians that we might each stand in the light about what we are eating. We believe that in signing this petition we are Cultivating Food Justice on our own tables. Our bottomline is that we have a Right to Know our food ingredients and to Label GMO Foods. We intend to create a massive grassroots movement to support this.
We love California. We love good food. Many of us are gaining confidence now that we can grow some of our own foods. We trust the process of initiative in the Golden State. We come together now as registered voters, and as others around the country and from many nations, that the people of California become aware that GMOs are in many of our foods. We each, endorse the California Right to Know Label GMOs. We are letting each other know that we are standing together here to Grow a Healthier Pizza for our Kids.

PAMM LARRY SIGNS THE ‘7.5 MILLION + 2 PETITION’ YOUR SIGNATURE IS INVITED TOO!
Pamm Larry, right, is the Grandma who started the California Right to Know Label GMOs that is now Proposition #37 on the November 6 ballot in California. The time is now to Grow the Greatest Grass Roots Movement in California History. Label GMOs in California. Go here to Sign the ‘7.5 Million + 2 Petition.’
WHAT’S UP WITH THE NUMBER 7.5 MILLION + 2 CALIFORNIANS?
7.5 Million is half of the number of Registered Voters in California who voted in the last general election. We need a few more than half, whatever the number who register, to win.
I was with Pamm Larry, May 29, 2012. Someone asked, how many people voted in California? She said 15 million. She said that we needed a couple people plus 50 % to win the California Right to Know Label GMOs Ballot Proposition. So…I thought…that meant we needed a magical number: “7.5 Million + 2 Californians” to Vote “Yes.” Get it?
The ‘7.5 Million + 2 Petition’ is about helping to build a powerful Grass Roots Movement in step with the beat of nature. Grow a Healthier Pizza in our Rally Cry!
Chewing on Food Safety: A National Conversation is Needed
To leave the Fate of the Future of Real Food Safety to the decision making capacity of 100 men and women U.S. Senators and Food Safety Policy Makers who may never have shopped their local Farmers’ Market or delighted in the taste of butter from contented cows would be an error in judgement. To imagine that Washington legislators, who may never have delighted in leafy greens fresh picked that morning, contamination free, are suited to make the call on what we who sing “America The Beautiful” will eat tomorrow is faulty logic. Food is ours. All of ours. It is time to Chew on Food Safety. A National Conversation has begun. Let all of us, GE Lovers, Organic food Lovers, Conventional Food Growers, sit down and enter into an honest and honoring Dialogue on Science, Ethics, and Food.
Let us give thanks and praise our Unity in Diversity as a nation. Let us be grateful that in this season of incoming Thanksgiving, we can take time to discuss with each other why we all need real food safety based on principles of Sound Health and Healing that have been with us since the beginning of dinner on planet earth. New Food Rules. We call for these now: Food Rules that are in harmony with the beat of nature. New agreements about what laws we ask our FDA to enforce to protect the bounty of our diverse seeds. We believe that can pave the way to economic renewal that is grounded and rooted in American ideals through turning our beat around with nature. We want support in growing a bit of our own food. We want support for community gardens. We want to co-create true earth-based Homeland Security through supporting 1000’s of micro-farms. Vegetables do not lie. We can live with it if some of our micro-farmers are not regulated by national or international Food Rules and Regulations. We, who know our foods and know our farmers, have the adulthood to decide what we want to eat. We do not need our FDA to mandate rules for the foods that we want to eat and have been safely eaten since we crawled out of the sea.
We express a new bill of what is right now to participate in our own government. We ask you to chew with us, to dine with us, to see what local, fresh, organic is all about as we create real food safety for our children and for people of the world everywhere. This is the kind of fair trade we stand up for. This is the kind of agreements we as one incorporated humanity ask for. We ask you, our honored elected representatives to eat and digest with us what is being said here.
All people, here and everywhere deserve good food as a human right.
Lettuce Keep The Beet together now.
The later verses of “America the beautiful” sing out throughout our beloved Land again now:
O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain…
God shed his grace on thee
Till selfish gain no longer stain
The banner of the free!
God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!
O beautiful for patriot dream
…beyond the years
…alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears!
God shed his grace on thee
Till nobler men keep once again
Thy whiter jubilee!
