Yes on 37

The No on 37 campaign is blanketing the airwaves with lies and distortions. These ads are designed to confuse voters and steer them away from the irresistible, powerful notion that we have the right to know what’s in our food.

On Friday, the Los Angeles Times reported that the No campaign was forced to pull one of their ads off the air after they misrepresented Stanford University.

Still, a befuddled Miller appears on TV stations across the state every hour of every day – claiming Prop 37 is confusing.  But Miller is confused about a lot of things – he also says cigarettes are not harmful and, in the wake of the nuclear disaster in Japan, claimed that low levels of nuclear radiation may be beneficial to our health. Yes, that Henry Miller.

On Saturday, the San Francisco Chronicle exposed misleading statements in the No on 37 ads.  They note, for example, that our opponent’s claim that Prop 37 will lead to higher food costs “is based on the opposition’s own study; there is no independent data that corroborate that estimate.”  Whoops!

$35 million can buy them the airwaves, but it can’t buy them the facts.  Help us spread the word that our opponent’s ads are riddled with lies and distortions.

One month to victory!

  1. Monsanto and the biotech ilk will always lie and cheat it seems, and I hold no illusions that they will ever play fair. The California initiative is a form of direct democracy where the people place something on the ballot and vote for it. If the majority votes, then it passes. While not at all as tough as I would like it to be, the labeling will accomplish getting the GMO issue to a lot more people. The only thing, IMO, that will help stem the tide of GMOs will be more and more aware people refusing to purchase anything associated with GMOs. If the labeling initiative passes, it’s a step in the right direction. If it doesn’t, then at least we have woken more people up to the issue and then they at least have the option of doing the research and eliminating products from their shopping carts that are clearly GMO. And just maybe, more people will start growing a portion of their own healthy food from non-GMO seeds.

    At the risk of sounding like a curmudgeon, I have to say that it takes very little to “dupe” the vast majority of the rank and file in AmeriKa. It’s almost as though the people feel it’s an insult to these international corps to question them. As Netanyahu said recently on Israeli T.V. Americans are very easy to move this way and that….talk about knowing whom you’re dealing with.

    “Asking Monsanto and the food industry to accept the will of the people and play nice is like asking the Mafia to play nice.”

    Honestly? I would MUCH rather deal with the Mafia, you know right where you stand from the “git-go” and they murder millions fewer than the Bloatflies in D.C., the Cops and the corporations in this country…

    Of course they cheat! So don’t be surprised when this measure passes and they somehow cheat us out of victory. Asking Monsanto and the food industry to accept the will of the people and play nice is like asking the Mafia to play nice. Won’t happen. It is going to be a long fight, and a long fight is in their best interests – because at some point in time, it will be too late to put the genie back in the bottle.

    Hope I’m wrong.
