Monsanto are evil and i can do nothing more than say that.

Let us condiser only two Monsanto products.

The first was a product taht increased milk production in cows when the western world is already awash with milk and farmers are complaining about not being paid enough for milk. What is the point of this product? It actually damages cows as well, making them, emaciated.

The second is termed "terminator technology". These are seeds which don't produce viable seed for the next years crop. This means that people have to buy seed from Monsanto to continue farming. Modern Ghandis are coming forward to stop this by trading seed. In the past it was salt, now it is seed.

These two points in my opinion make Monsanto truly bad.

I am a bit curious, as one of the articles talks about GMOs causing food allergies and considering that the past couple of years the number of people with allergies has increased in astronomical numbers, if this might be related to GMO products, but is being blamed on climate change.

Star and Flag, and I hope everyone who reads this writes a letter to their representatives, if that does any good these days.

GMO foods should be stopped.

As well as I don't believe that anyone or any company should be allowed to take out a patent on any form of life, and plants are life.

gYvMessanger, if it were not for people continuing to post information in regards to Monsanto etc, I would be one of those who had no clue. I had known for a long time about GMO foods, but really was not aware of how extensive this issue was. So I for one, am glad that people continue to post information, even if it has been posted before.

Ahhh was just reading another link posted by Applesandoranges which talks about GMO and increased allergies.

Good Job everyone.

I'll give you a star and flag as this information deserves more attention than a two year old video which everyones gushing over at the moment.

Monsanto and other large super corps need to be stopped.

Two year old, ten or 50. Who cares? The truth is the truth when it comes to this company. I don't give a rats butt how old the video or information in these videos are. Monsanto is evil. I don't bandy that word around too liberally. I have used it to describe some of the tactics used by others for personal gain and such but this corporation is among the worse ever created.

So I don't really care how old the data is being presented. It's the old 'de-classified' information that will tell you about this company. I mean, look at ddt. Without that data (very old) coming out they would still be pushing that poison.

So, gushing about an old video isn't bad like you seem to make it sound. Gushing over new videos actually kind of pisses me off because it means no one is making a dent against this giant. It means that people are simply going "Holy s! that really sucks." Then off to find any new video that is depressing.

Granted, many of us don't have any real power to attack a giant like this. I don't really know where to start. But passing that OLD information around as much as possible and trying to get media and others to acknowledge is the best I can come up with right now.

However, we all know that media isn't there to help us anymore. They are there to push a buck and this has been proven clearly in one of the best Monsanto cases ever. The great thing is that they virtually kept their names out of the trial because it was the Fox reporters suing Fox over not allowing the truth to be aired.

The crappy thing is that Fox won and the supreme court stated that no news organization is obligated to tell the truth!

That's the stuff that needs to be talked about. It doesn't flippin matter how old it is.

Okay, I'll give you that. However, how much of the NEW news leaks out before it is old? You see, it's about ALL of the news. We have to throw this in their faces. Every piece of it. So hard until there is so much crap on top that they can't stand the weight anymore and decide to do something. Every person that is new to this subject is another body to heap on that pile. (Hmmm, maybe I shouldn't say crap then. But that's what this company is turning our bodies into.)

Point taken but I still feel that if this information is brought out over and over and each time it receives a ton of flags it just means that at least one set of new eyes have seen that information. To me it is worth it over and over.

Flags? Who gives a flip about flags when it comes to a topic like this.

Grains, vegtables and fruits on this planet were designed especially for us. To geneticaly modify this food is crime against every man woman and child who rely on these foods for life. I'm beginning to wonder if this is why the bee's are disapearing not to mention Bats & amphibians. We all are a part of this planet and the food was made the way it is for our bodys. Geneticaly modified plants produce geneticaly modified pollen. Bees and other critters consume these foods also and now there dying off. We really nead to stop this madness. This is being done so a few people can get rich at the cost of our health and safety. Star and Flag for you my friend.
P.S. Lets not forget. Congress has stopped working for the American people. Everything they do is for the coorperations and thats the sad reallity of it all. They do nothing for us anymore.

Mosanto doesn't need to lobby, they control large part of the US government.

I remember when my friend lost his farm to Mosanto.

The southern Europeans/Babylonian elites use weak food and poison to control serfs and conquered people. The Spanish tried to destroy any indigenous plant the Aztecs and other Indians of Mexico ate. Based on what I have learned of Mosanto and their enablers, I believe they are using Southern European population/food control techniques, I think they would like to use food to herd people into a missionary lifestyle. Many of the missionary indians died of disease and over work.

Ok....we're all the little guys in the big picture here lets take the fight to the streets where we are the strongest. Support the Organic Food industry by buying there products and tell everyone we know about this. We can grow our own veggies, support small local farms and dairies...
there are ways to attack this. Not to mention the Civil Rights Org/Legal avenue. I truely believe that our civil rights are being attacked and government is, under the law, suppose to protect and defend our rights.
I am so pissed right now I'm seeing RED......

Gotta cool down....take a break......drink a beer, sh#t they probably got to the beer too......

Monsanto is a global corp... they are involved with INDIA and have ran into a little friction from the local farmers as it does away with their way of farming... and also you may want to snoop around Hawaii... they have a Franken Foods Lab their and the locals are their guinne pigs....

I don't know when this was written or how many of these people are in place but Monsanto does have a long history of sharing people with the government.

How Did We Get Here: A Brief History of Monsanto and the US Government

# 1991: Margaret Miller was appointed Deputy Director of FDA by George Bush Sr. She oversaw the approval of the genetically engineered growth hormone rBGH. Prior to the appointment, she was one of Monsanto's top scientists developing rBGH. At the FDA, she approved the same rBGH studies she previously led at Monsanto.
# 1991: A right-wing extremist, Clarence Thomas, was appointed to the Supreme Court, despite nationwide opposition. Prior to his appointment, Thomas was a lawyer for Monsanto, a notorious chemical polluter and ag biotech promoter. Thomas would later cast the decisive vote in 2000 on the Supreme Court, ratifying the stolen election that put George Bush Jr. into office.
# 1992: Michael Taylor was appointed FDA's Deputy Commissioner for Policy, a role created to expedite the approval process of genetically engineered foods. Prior to his appointment, Taylor was an attorney for Monsanto. Taylor went on to become Monsanto's Vice-President.
# 1993: Rufus Yerxa was nominated as U.S. deputy to the World Trade Organization. Prior to his appointment as one of the most powerful bureaucrats in the world regarding international trade policies, Rufus was Monsanto's Chief Counsel.
# 1996: Michael Kantor was appointed U.S. Secretary of Commerce. At that time, Kantor was also on the Board of Directors of Monsanto.
# 2000: The White House appoints Carol Tucker Foreman as the sole "consumer advocate" on an international committee assessing genetically modified foods. Prior to her appointment, Foreman was a lobbyist for Monsanto.
# 2001: Anne Veneman was appointed head of the USDA, in charge of regulating, among other things, genetically engineered crops. Veneman previously served on the Board of Directors of Calgene, a Monsanto biotech subsidiary.
# 2001: Donald Rumsfeld was sworn in as Secretary or Defense. Rumsfeld was previously the CEO of the Searle pharmaceutical corporation, acquired by Monsanto.
# 2001: Linda Fisher was appointed Deputy Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Her regulatory chores included "enforcing" pesticide regulations, such as Monsanto's herbicide, Roundup, commonly sprayed on GE crops. Fisher was previously Monsanto's Vice-President of Government Affairs. Previously Fisher served as a high-level staffer for another biotech cheerleader, President Bill Clinton.
# 2002: George Poste was appointed head the bioterrorism division of Homeland Security. Previously, Poste was a Monsanto animal specialist.

President Obama announced on March 14th the creation of a White House Food Safety Working Group to improve and coordinate the governments approach to the nationwide food safety crisis. Unfortunately, included in President Obama's short-list of working group members is Michael Taylor, a former Monsanto executive who has a long history of lobbying for Monsanto and fast tracking Monsanto's controversial rBGH while at the Food and Drug Administration. And, Tom Vilsack is our new Secretary of Agriculture. Vilsack was named the Biotech "Governor of the Year" and enjoyed numerous rides on Monsanto's corporate jet during his time in office and he became a schill for agribusiness biotech giants like Monsanto.

I noticed in my list above that Monsanto bought Searle Pharmaceuticals in 1985. That was pretty clever of them. They make food substances that slowly kill us then make a drug that we need to be on for life to counteract the effects.

Found this on Searle that I think most people already know but just shows that this is probably just the kind of company they wanted to get a hold of.

Question: How long can a corporate, organized crime syndicate keep a plague a secret? Answer: Nineteen years and counting if they own the media and pay off Congress.

In 1995, the FDA released under the Freedom of Information Act, 92 symptoms caused by aspartame including blindness and death. What is aspartame? Two synthetic amino acids, phenylalanine (50%) and aspartic acid (40 %) are bound in methanol (10%) In early testing of phenylalanine (1970), on Rhesus monkeys one died and 5 had grand mal seizures. When the aspartame was stopped, the seizures stopped. Searle Pharmaceuticals, 'discoverers' of NutraSweet hid this study to gain FDA approval.

Any photos of the M people.
Be Like Alex Jones and TMZ and get in their face.

Its hard to believe that Alex Jones hasn't been on M's case
as complaints go way back on their cartel control.

I seem to be a little late to this party but the more I read the angrier I get so I will post anyway in hopes that down the road others will get angry.

Monsanto Hid PCB Pollution for Decades Anniston, Alabama CitizensANNISTON, Ala. --

On the west side of Anniston, the poor side of Anniston, the people grew berries in their gardens, raised hogs in their back yards, caught bass in the murky streams where their children swam and played and were baptized. They didn't know their dirt and yards and bass and kids -- along with the acrid air they breathed -- were all contaminated with toxic chemicals. They didn't know they lived in one of the most polluted patches of America.

Now they know. They also know that for nearly 40 years, while producing the now-banned industrial coolants known as PCBs at a local factory, Monsanto Co. routinely discharged toxic waste into a west Anniston creek and dumped millions of pounds of PCBs into oozing open-pit landfills. And thousands of pages of Monsanto documents -- many emblazoned with warnings such as "CONFIDENTIAL: Read and Destroy" -- show that for decades, the corporate-giant concealed what it did and what it knew...

Do a web search Delauro; she has plenty of images of herself on the web; she is the lady who wants to ban non factory farm vegetables. She is married to some guy high up in Monsanto. Elitist scum!

Yeah, here's a quote from monsanto I love:


We can't afford to lose one dollar of business.
Our attitude in discussing this subject with our customer will be the deciding factor in our success or failure in retaining all our present business. Good luck."

More Stuff About Monsanto And The Source For The Quote

This multi-national corporation disgusts me. However, they are not the only ones doing very bad things to us, the environment and whatever else they can get their grubby hands on. Here's a thread about other bad corps:


There is a bit in the documentary "The Corporation" that states the main objective of the corporation is to make money above all else. I do believe this creates a unhealthy attitude and it shows from the things that corporations pull off that that is their only objective. Down with the corporation, I say. That includes the U.S. Gov, as they are just another worthless corporation we don't need. I do think it's obvious that anything Gov. touches turns into dog poo, so why do we need them?

Seriously, here's a documentary on corporations and the situation between them and the people of Argentina. I found it quite interesting that the corporation can run without all the ridiculous people at the top, making billions of dollars, millions at the very least, making decisions from their ivory towers while completely disengaged from the real world.

The Take

We need to shake the whole system up. Everything is corrupt. I don't even know where to start.
