Michelle Obama's Organic Garden & MACA

Michelle Obama starts an organic garden on the White House grounds.

The Mid America CropLife Association (MACA) follows with a negative public relations ploy.

It’s not that absurd when you learn that MACA’s mission is “To identify business issues relating to food production and to take action to address those issues identified as important to our membership.”

Translation? MACA represents chemical companies that produce pesticides. Obviously, the membership isn’t keen on the first lady not spraying chemicals all over the place.

MACA sent out an e-mail stating its case. Would you believe that the phrase “crop protection technologies” was used as a euphemism for pesticides?

Read MACA's e-mail.

Sign a petition (joining 106,000 others) telling MACA how ridiculous its e-mail is.
