Now, coming from CA does not change my attitude toward the socialist state but sometimes the PEOPLE of CA get it right. Now that I am voting in NV, the new homestead state, we cannot lend our vote to the ballot.
GMO. On the ballot this year is the requirement that ALL foods that contain GMO’s be labeled as such. This goes along with my belief that everyone needs to know what their food source is, how it was handled or raised and what the final product is. GMO has NO safety record at all. The Obama administration has appointed a former Monsanto lawyer as FDA Deputy Commissioner of Foods, yep, the fox in the hen house. This is why we need legislation to keep the people informed and allowing the redress of grievance if they go to far.
Guerrilla Grafting: You may have heard of guerrilla gardening, now we have guerilla grafting. The core idea of both is to plant foods in public areas and lands, harvest and eat the proceeds. This also gains the attention of the public servants that we need to plant food as well as pretty plants. We have people going out into the community, using whatever rootstock is there and grafting fruit tree onto them. Eventually they will produce fruit…Now this is not on a ballot, but a great companion planting with the GMO measure!
I love both of these, we need to get the attention of the PUBLIC SERVANTS and get them to do what makes sense. When the government feeds the hand of the corporations, they have nothing left in hand for the people. So many things such as this could be done on a cooperative level, like gardens and orchards in the city that feed those that are down on their luck. We need better use of resources on this level to make an impact.
Now go vote and make your voice heard in city meetings and town councils!
