When that happens, we will be making real progress. Non of us should settle for less.

Daphne, have you read anything about Iceland? Here is a bit: "In just three years, Iceland went from collapse to revolution and back to growth. What can Spain and Greece learn from the Icelandic experience and its embrace of direct democracy?

Just two or three years after its economy and government collapsed, Iceland is bouncing back with remarkable strength. This week, the small island nation earned praise from foreign investors despite allowing its banks to collapse and refusing to pay...

Daphne, have you read anything about Iceland? Here is a bit: "In just three years, Iceland went from collapse to revolution and back to growth. What can Spain and Greece learn from the Icelandic experience and its embrace of direct democracy?

Just two or three years after its economy and government collapsed, Iceland is bouncing back with remarkable strength. This week, the small island nation earned praise from foreign investors despite allowing its banks to collapse and refusing to pay back some of its debt — belying the dominant idea among Europe’s ruling class that bank failures and defaults necessarily engender disastrous economic consequences.

Now, in an historically unprecedented move, the government has decided to draft a new constitution with the online input of its citizens — essentially crowdsourcing the creation of Iceland’s real democracy. Rather than just involving voters at the end of the process through a referendum, the Icelanders have an opportunity, through social media, to be directly involved in the writing process. It’s the ultimate affirmation of participatory democracy. It’s Democracy 2.0.

How did Iceland get from there to here? And what are the lessons for Europe’s troubled periphery?" and more can be read here: http://roarmag.org/2011/06/iceland-crowdsources-constitution-investors-spain-greece/ (plus some pictures too) I think it is great they have bounced back so quickly :) and it gives hope to other countries that there are other ways to operate a country and perhaps they could be better. I agree that we should talk about the issue and definitely be careful of our words when we talk about this issue and others.... conscious language is a great topic too: http://www.reneesnider.com/resources/conscious-language-conscious-communication/ In healthy & happiness

Also, Daphne, it was set up as a Republic "the Republic for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all" I have been hearing politicians calling us a Democracy rather than a Republic these days. Why do politicians and the President choose the word Democracy over Republic?

Blazey Callaway , Most food available in Canada does not come from China, maybe other consumer goods. lots of food grains and vegetabes sold in canada are from Canada,.. I thought GMO's are either labeled or banned in Canada?

L Marina Cabanilla Maza, in order to initiate a class action lawsuit one has to show that Monsanto causes harm,... So far there have been several large lawsuits against Monsanto, which should have been pretty OBVIOUSLY CLEAR CUT !!! (against Monsanto)!! However Monsanto's lobbiests own both parties, and many of our "lawmakers" both Repcons and Dems are former Monsanto Lawyers or Lobbiests or have subsyantial Invesstments in Monsanto Funds!!! the head of the FDA was a former Monsanto Lawyer...

I believe Bill Gates is a big Monsanto Investor!

so much for diplomacy John,what about lobbying, boycotting, footwork and knowledge for action. If we stop buying their products, they will fold, even as big as they are. So go after companies who sell their modified foods, and who sell their altered seeds for gardening, and know who they are and what they sell first. It would scare you to know. Yes there are some ways to stop the continuance of this coming atrocity. Keep up the good work folks, you won't regret spending the time to get...

There are TONS of GMO food crops grown in and imported into Canada. There are no labeling requirements, nor was there a referendum on the subject. The Canadian Gov devised a nice marketing twist calling them "Novel foods". They use the same standards as the USG -- SAME nutritive value = SAFE for consumption as long as the company who engineered it says it's safe. Here's the list of GMO crops currently approved as food in Canada. It's a long list btw. http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/fn-an/gmf-agm/appr...

We have the right to know what is in our food and make a decision if this is what we wish to feed ourselves and our children. Our children have the most to lose, of course. What if Monsanto's studies are wrong? Vote for Proposition 37 (inCA) and boycott stores and companies who do not want you to know what they have done to our food." - Quote from Paula Phillips.

I wonder if they have the funds to buy every state agriculture rep and propagandize every prop 37 like initiative in every state? Selling lies can expend enormous amounts of energy/time/money. The truth is simple and free. Being evil is such a spiritually retarded waste of energy!

I really mean it. The origin of this thinking started the Nazi party in Germany. We bombed Germany but we didn't get the Nazis. They are here as Monsanto. I W Farbman or was it I G Farbman a pharmacuetical company was one of the businesses that started the Nazi party. They haven't changed much and Monsanto goes right along with them.

I would <3 to have GMOs banned from US groceries PERMANENTLY; that way, people won't suffer severely from the effects of genetically modified fruits, vegetables, and grains. We have the peace to eat organic goods, instead of genetically modified crap created by Monsanto.

About 40 years ago I picked a book off the shelves at Whittier library called The Devil's Chemist. It is now out of print and extremely dull ready. It the minutes of the early meetings of the Nazi party in Germany.At the time the Nazi party was controlled by the German pharmacuetical and chemical companies. One had a mission statement clearly stating they intended to replace every natural thing with one of their synthetic products. Want them controlling the FDA and the USDA and Congress? I don't.

Don't I know! I have been sick for years because of this GMO that they call food. If I eat anything that is remotely GMO or preservatives or artificial I get severe nerve pain. They don't know why this suddenly happened to me 3 years ago I was completely healthy, ate right and exercised. Now I lost my job and can barely work. It is very hard to figure out what foods might be safe since they are not labeled.

Anyone try growing their own food?? My husband and I do and have enough to last us almost to the next Spring. What will not keep I can or vacuum seal. Our meat is organic as we hunt and fish. What you say, how can that be the waters are getting so polluted. Well, we fish in areas where there are very few people. I supplement with as natural as I can products. OK, perhaps you cann't do what we do but in Vancouver they started shopping within 100 Miles of their home and everyone...

OK, perhaps you cann't do what we do but in Vancouver they started shopping within 100 Miles of their home and everyone survived. Look around your areas and see what is offered or check on the internet. These people tried it for a yr. and came back with a report. It is hard at first but word soon got out and others took up the challenge. Good luck to everyone. www.wingertsweb.com

Gloria Miller I believe this. In fact it was chemicals made by Bayer, I believe it was called at the time before the name Monsanto, that was used as testing at Hitler's Nazi camp that killed 1000 women, I believe it what I read. This was on the reading of the early days of Monsanto Corporation.
