This list of contributors to stop Prop 37 is mindbogglingly long.
Please note: buried in there a many brands of "natural" and "organic" foods you find in "Whole" Foods and other big Ag outlets that claim to be concerned about your health.

"Another argument for local products."
Precisely!
Here's some more tainted money at work.

"Now the Guardian can reveal the latest project of the secretive funding network: a campaign to stop state governments moving towards renewable energy.
The campaign against wind and solar power was led by a relatively new entity, the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity. The Franklin Center did not exist before 2009, but it has quickly become a protege of Donors Trust.
The Franklin Center, headquarters barely 1/10th of a mile away from the nondescript Alexandria, Virginia town home of its funders, received $6.3m from the two funds in 2011. It was the second largest disbursement to any entity by the Donors that year, according to tax records.
The largesse to the Franklin Center signals a shift in priorities for the conservative billionaires who are funding the anti-climate cause towards local and state-level organizing."

I think that if Ben were still with us he would sue these charlatans.

"Some have learnt many Tricks of sly Evasion, Instead of Truth they use Equivocation, And eke it out with mental Reservation, Which is to good Men an Abomination.” Benjamin Franklin
“Trickery and treachery are the practices of fools that have not the wits enough to be honest” Benjamin Franklin

If you don't know about ThePeoplesBoycott.com, it's an excellent website run by a friend in Gorham. It's extremely well researched, with lists of corporations that are crushing We the People and should be boycotted. It has lists of these corporations and their products; extensive lists of retail products that should be boycotted; links to additional relevant info; fantastic editorials and up to date progressive news flashes that would likely be of great interest to all or most of us. Join the very large fan base on facebook.
