Interesting that Oct. 3 news reports David Axelrod, chief strategist for President Obama’s re-election campaign, criticized Gov. Perry’s campaign during a Sunday night interview by saying, “Campaigns are like an MRI for the soul — whoever you are, eventually people find out.”
Yet, MRI-time spent on Mr. Axelrod, senior adviser to President Obama until his new job, will show that in January of this year, “Axelrod, presumably no agronomy expert, evidently argued against placing restrictions on GM alfalfa.” Monsanto got free-rein to get its genetically modified alfalfa into our croplands (which may prove irreversibly damaging), along with pushing use of its toxic Roundup, that kills bees as well as weeds. Organic farmers need organic alfalfa, but GM alfalfa travels harmfully into organic alfalfa fields. Honey producers need healthy bees as do pollen-dependent crops, but Roundup kills bees.
