Now according to Congress, we Americans are too 'Stupid' to read labels and decide for ourselves regarding GMO foods 

WASHINGTON -- It's pretty rare that members of Congress and all the witnesses they've called will declare out loud that Americans are just too ignorant to be given a piece of information, but that was a key conclusion of a session of the House Agriculture Committee this week.

The issue was genetically modified organisms, or GMOs as they're often known in the food industry. And members of the subcommittee on Horticulture, Research, Biotechnology, and Foreign Agriculture, as well as their four experts, agreed that the genetic engineering of food crops has been a thorough success responsible for feeding the hungry, improving nutrition and reducing the use of pesticides.

People who oppose GMOs or want them labeled so that consumers can know what they're eating are alarmists who thrive on fear and ignorance, the panel agreed. Labeling GMO foods would only stoke those fears, and harm a beneficial thing, so it should not be allowed, the lawmakers and witnesses agreed.

Americans Are Too Stupid For GMO Labeling, Congressional Panel Says 

And then there is's okay to place this on the label but not 'GMO' specifically...

The issue may soon gain fresh relevance on Capitol Hill, where a measure backed by Reps. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) and G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) to stop states from requiring GMO labeling could get marked up as early as September. The bill also would allow genetically engineered food to be labeled "100 percent natural."

"100% natural".....yeah, play the word game fellas 
Now that ^^^^is 'stupid' and misleading!!! 

So basically, we are dumb and ignorant and we need our dearly beloved *cough* government to make the decision for us where GMO's are concerned because they know what's best for us...[/sarcasm] 

Well, I like to make my own decisions, thank you very much 
I don't need Big Brother to do jack for me, other than RESPECT me and allowing me my right to decide what foods I care to eat 

Just like people that have allergies, out of RESPECT for them, the labels ought to state all ingredients including any GMO, so that the consumer can make the best choice for themselves 

Companies put 'high fructose corn syrup' on the ingredients, so IMO they can also add GMO to that list as well 

Well TPTB, it's up to the people to decide, fear mongering or not 
The government has no place making that decision for us and who the hell do they think they are calling us 'stupid'???? 
Let's all remember that on Voting day!!
