Keep GMO apples out of our shopping carts

Dear Friend,

I just asked the CEOs of the major grocery store chains to refuse to
carry genetically modified apples or processed foods that use them.

The USDA is likely to fast-track approval of a new GMO apple variety
engineered not to brown when sliced. Over a minor cosmetic issue, our
supermarkets could be flooded with experimental apples that look
fresher than they should and unlabeled products sweetened with GMO
apple juice.

I just signed a petition telling major grocery stores around the
country that I don't want GMO apples on their store shelves. Will you
join me and help stop this potentially unsafe food?

Ralph Nader: Obama’s a ‘War Criminal’

via (title unknown) by jon on 9/25/12

It’s no surprise that Ralph Nader isn’t a fan of former President George W. Bush. After all, the longtime activist ran against him in both 2000 and 2004. But Nader’s even less a fan of President Barack Obama, if only because he thinks Obama was capable of so much more.
