Sign the petition and tell Congress: Pass the "Saving America's Pollinators Act" to protect our bees and food supply! Nearly 70 percent of Iowa's precious bees were too sick, poisoned by toxic agricultural pesticides produced by Bayer & Monsanto -- to survive this winter's frigid temperatures. Colony Collapse Disorder is a worldwide catastrophe, & what comes next is even worse. A quarter of everything we eat, from apples to watermelon, depends on bee pollination.

We sent a box of Froot Loops to a lab for genetic testing & found 100% of the corn was GMO, containing both Roundup Ready & Bt corn as well as some Roundup Ready soy.

Congress: Pass Expanded Background Checks~ A gaping hole in our laws allows criminals and others to go to private sellers at gun shows, on the internet, and elsewhere to buy guns with no background check, no questions asked. More than 90% of Americans say that they support fixing the criminal background check system for gun sales by getting the names of everyone who isn't allowed to buy a gun into the background check system, and providing a background check for every gun purchase,
