Healthcare…Chosen Ignorance?

12 January, 2013

Greetings ya’ll and thanks for stopping by The Countdown to see what’s new on the menu.

We hope you have had a great Christmas and New Year season but it’s time to get back into the swing of things. Picking up where we left off last month on the healthcare issue:

So what’s next?


California Senator, Dianne Feinstein cosponsored S. 229 and S. 230, introduced by Senator Mark Begich [D-AK] on January 31, 2011.  These bills would have required the labeling of genetically modified salmon and banned the approval of genetically modified salmon by the FDA, respectively. Both these bills have been referred to Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions.  Unfortunately, the 112th Congress did not take action on either of these bills before adjourning. In order for these bills to be considered again, they would have to be reintroduced in the 113th Congress.

 Senator Feinstein continues:

“I am concerned that the FDA is using a regulatory framework for animal drugs to assess the safety and environmental consequences of this product. This drug approval process was not designed to regulate genetically modified foods, and I am concerned that the process does not allow for the release of important health and safety information, nor does it provided adequate opportunities for public comment.”  


Yup, no patience necessary for this microwave society…in fact no safety needed either, unless it comes from the ‘upper echelons’ of society – the ones who follow that golden rule of:  “He who has the gold, makes the rules”.

I prefer God’s Golden Rule – Love Him more than anything and my neighbor as myself . Yes it’s hard sometimes – especially when there are those who are willfully ignorant or complicit, but as I choose, so I go.
