Thanks for this.

We need to stop these people and we need to stop them now.
They are basically taking over the entire worlds food seed source without fully testing their seeds - and causing regular farmers to be prosecuted and sued under patent laws.

This is a crime.
Obama has hired on the same Agricultural Chief as we had
when these people started taking over. This is not good.

Please watch - if you haven't already.

Agreed!

I hear many farmers in the US and Canada go out of business because many of their crops have Monsanto plants growing with non Monsanto plants and are sued. Monsanto is a disgusting company and does need to be stopped.

Monsanto should be killed as a corporation. Illegalize GMO seeds. Those people are just disgusting what they are doing all over the world, in India and in Iraq in particular.

I'm against government involvement, but Monsanto is a threat to the human race.

Monanto is no longer a corporation. It is a nation.

They control politician's and are knee-deep in regulatory agencies, especially the USDA, the FDA, and the World Trade Organization.

Their favorite tool is the courts. What does that tell you?

I beg to differ (slightly)

I don't believe the American Government is evil. I believe those who have usurped control of the American Government are evil.

And those evil folks are TRANSNATIONAL..., just like corporations.

They span the globe, and anywhere you find a "Central Bank" you can be sure, they are in control.

True, but when the government is bought out by evil, and they know whats going on, that makes them evil as well.

I agree with what you said though.

That is a company that I will love to see going into smokes along with their test tube bastard crops.

unfortunately not so nice to see so many people post on this thread

yes, monsanto has long been suspect of far too much bs

here is the farmer here in canada and his dealings with the monsantos

www.percyschmeiser.com...

then there are other stories i have heard linking the 'chemtrails' with 'gm' crops
not exactly sure, but something along the idea the chemtrails condition the soil
oh wait, just remembered it was a theory.... so still could be something...

anyone gets the urge

their canadian site

www.monsanto.ca...

googled this and found yet way too much more to try and absorb

Results 1 - 50 of about 91,500 for monsanto+canadian+farmer.

yet another Big Deal with Monsanto

now there seems to be some sort of buyout in the midwest

of seed companies

by Monsanto




For nearly all of its history the United States Patent and Trademark Office refused to grant patents on seeds, viewing them as life-forms with too many variables to be patented. But in 1980 the U.S. Supreme Court allowed for seed patents in a five-to-four decision, laying the groundwork for a handful of corporations to begin taking control of the world’s food supply. Since the 1980s, Monsanto has become the world leader in genetic modification of seeds and has won at least 674 biotechnology patents, more than any other company. This is not surprising, considering they invest over $2 million a day on research and development! But Monsanto is not only patenting their own GMO seeds. They have also succeeded in slapping patents on a huge number of crop seeds, patenting life forms for the first time -- again without a vote of the people or Congress. By doing this, Monsanto becomes sole owner of the very seeds necessary to support the world’s food supply … an incredibly powerful position that no for-profit company should ever hold.


makes for an eerie meaning to 'black helicopters' maybe?



The “Seed Police” Monsanto employs an arsenal of private investigators and agents who secretly videotape farmers, snatch crop samples from their land and even fly helicopters overhead to spy -- all to catch farmers saving or sharing seeds. As of 2005 Monsanto had 75 employees and a $10-million budget solely to investigate and prosecute farmers for patent infringement. And until recently, Monsanto has even been known to sue farmers for GM crops growing on their land that got there via cross-contamination. In other words, a neighboring farm’s GM seeds blew over onto their land, and Monsanto slaps them with a lawsuit. I realize this seems incredible, but it is true.





Meanwhile, Monsanto is taking many other steps to keep farmers and everyone else from having any access at all to buying, collecting, and saving of normal seeds:

1. They’ve bought up the seed companies across the Midwest.

2. They’ve written Monsanto seed laws and gotten legislators to put them through, that make cleaning, collecting and storing of seeds so onerous in terms of fees and paperwork that having normal seed becomes almost impossible.

3. Monsanto is pushing laws that ensure farmers and citizens can’t block the planting of GMO crops even if they can contaminate other crops.

4. There are Monsanto regulations buried in the FDA rules that make a farmer’s seed cleaning equipment illegal because it’s now considered a “source of seed contamination.” Monsanto has sued more than 1,500 farmers whose fields had simply been contaminated by GM crops.
