What about the chemical time bombs in our midst?

Chemical weapons are made by many nations in the world, including our own. Who has them, who gets them and how they are used is a kind of war roulette.

Another kind of bio-terrorism game is local and national, and I don't see the president lobbying the Monsanto shills in Congress to stop the use of chemical pesticides akin to 2-4D, a warfare defoliant (Agent Orange) used for some genetically modified organisms.

GMO's are time bombs in our bodies and genetic land mines in our soil. They're contaminating our seed bank, adding more poison to agriculture, impacting human and animal health every day of every year wherever they are planted and sprayed.

Has the chemical haze of bombing aggression blinded Congress and the president's view of the seeds of destruction being sown in our own killing fields at home?
