Yup.

Monsanto.

Being against Monsanto is definitely one area that I am in full agreement with the hippies about!

Its not just seed companies, but all copy write and IP laws that are severely broken. The system was designed to spark creativity, protect the small inventors yet it has the opposite effect.

I think that farmers are getting screwed. You plant organic corn seeds and I plant gm corn seeds. Bees transport pollen as God intended and now your plants (and soon seeds) have gm mutations. You should not be subjected to un-ending legal actions because nature did what was intended.

Seems to me that Monsanto knows that this gene transfer can happen by natural means, but they also know they can wear you out by the sheer size and massive funding of thier legal department. (it's a war of attrition)

Our kids are going to be the ones to pay big for all this. There is no turning back now. We let them get such a foot hold,it will never be same, and we really don't know what these crops are doing to our bodies.They also say there is some cross generation with other plants.

Saw something on tv awhile back about them. (Might have been 20/20) Pretty awful the way they go after the farmers......

Several years ago there was a Canadian farmer that wanted to sue because Monsanto GM pollen drifted into his fields and ruined the heirloom stock his family had been cultivating and refining for several generations.

So they sued HIM for supposedly growing THEIR genetics without buying them from Monsanto.

That is what this is about.

Monsanto are basically pushing 180 degrees in the opposite direction of what is right, to prevent people from having the case that they DON'T want GM crops in THEIR OWN FIELDS.

All of this is FORCING THE HUMAN RACE TO EAT GM FOODS.

Why am I being incrementally FORCED to have NO OTHER FOOD to buy at the market except GM food?


Everyone should be asking themselves that question. Ask why your kids are being forced to have no other food to eat except GMO food.

If you don't care about yourself, care about them.

IS it not our right as citizens to create and sustain a market that provides us with NON GMO FOOD?

Make no mistake folks, it is a "conspiracy" to FORCE us to have no choice but to eat their genetically modified food that THEY hold the patent on.

So basically food will not be patented by NATURE and free to all any more.

They will own the EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS to sell food.

Eventually they will claim that your heirloom garden is a "national security riisk" because it hasn't been genetically "protected" from some bull**** or another, and they will pass laws saying you can't grow self producing non GMO food in your own yard.

It is time for people to stop being apathetic about this.

The time do become active against these types of agendas is NOW.

We owe it to our children, and their children.

At the very least, don't let inactivity be the result of simply not believing there could be such a conspiracy, when there is SO MUCH evidence that points to the fact that elite shadowy douchebags want COMPLETE CONTROL over what we eat.

LC some how I knew you would feel this way, and we might all be too late doing this, but there really needs for something to be done and all of us to support this. There is something in this that we really don't even have to think about it very long for it to resonate in a bad way.It is kind of like pronogaphy, you know it when you see it.

that is why there is a place in sweden or norway.. can't remember, but they are taking seeds from all the plants and warehousing them. Incase there is some nasty plague or GM crops ruin everything out there.. KILL ALL THE BEES.. they will have this one place that has all natural seeds to replant, or to plant.. say underground


When money is more important than mother earth.. there is Monsanto.

Funny, as soon as I read the word "farming", my mind disingaged and I began craving saturated fats.
