Major Themes Shared By Petitioners and in emails to Frederick Ravid

Frustration is expressed at corporate corruption of the FDA's regulatory function.
Many are very concerned about Monsanto's behavior over history and its implications for HEALTH.
President Obama is often criticized for allowing this to happen after promising "change we can believe in."
People notice that The First Lady is involved in Healthy Food initiatives while the President is paying back Monsanto for its big campaign support in his election by giving them this power.
Many people think Michael Taylor is just now being appointed to FDA and others wonder why we're just now revisiting his appointment.
People are very happy to find a voice on this topic, which one writer aptly stated " is more important than reforming wall street and banks because it's a "Fork in the road question for the whole biosphere."
One Potato Farmer said "This Petition has given us farmers so much hope." I replied "You've just mde my day!"
Many commented that our email update did not easily identify what petition was being discussed, and YES, we hear you!
A few people are asking how to remove their email address or opt out. This will be addressed below in the Housekeeping Department
We got some blame-laden finger-pointing email too. Hey, it's a free country!

Housekeeping Department
