Im putting this in the gray area, seeing as to how im kinda gray are as to what im looking at heh. Just to give some background, ive had soem sort of
calling by God to travel to some of the areas of the US that are in extreme poverty and are dying (as in the area dying-businesses etc). So I just got
in my car and drove where the wind took me, and I ended up in some places and experienced some strange synchronicities-but only got that far. Im
having trouble putting it together, so thats why im dumping this topic incompletely, without a conclusion in the hopes that others can use their
brains and we can come up with something.
So I drove out to the midwest, had NO IDEA why I was out there, part of me wanted to see the span of the EM experiences and what they can do outside
my home area, so we can say it started there. The rest is just guided by God. So anyway, im driving, and what do you know, I drive right past Monsanto
(The synchronicities started here in Des Monies, IA). I thought to myself, so this is the world famous Monsanto, its somewhat unimpressive versus all
the hype. Its small, its just like any other larger farm op out there, I thought that was weird. So anyway, I go birdwatching sometimes (trying to
learn to respect nature and its animals-from my carnivore thread) and the birds will fly around you and point your attention to things. For whatever
reason, large flocks of all bird types (finches, ravens, cardinals, redwings, etc) were landing in these fields I kept driving by. So anyways im
heading back to DC, and im pulled to another flock in Ohio. This time im pointed to an expirimental plot for the largest seed provider in OH. They are
using hybrid/gene modified seeds and I stopped to take a look. This particular plot included: wheat, soybean, corn. I talked to the grower (who was
cool as F) and he told me it was 1 generation soy, as they change the patent yearly (seasonally) and have to repurchase teh rights (I assumed to price
control) by seed purchase every season.
So I did some research, and it turns out what do you know: the largest seed producer in OH, which spreads product out as far as the Carolinas, is
using none other than Monsanto's product. So I got to see some of these seeds up close (they were seeding only for soy, but wheat and corn remained
in teh experimental plot from previous grows) and they were red/blue (kinda thought that was funny like red pill blue pill heh), I assume just a
general identifier. So heres the info on the beans (and other products). Its a glyphosate based gene infusion. What glyphosate is is an herbicide. Its
the active ingredient in Round Up, if you have ever used that to kill weeds and hard to kill plants. The idea is to have it in teh seeds so that
grasses and weeds do not grow around the plant, because its basically already got teh herbicide in it. So heres the technical cut + pasted:

Ok, so here are the pictures and im going to add random bits of info im thinking about and maybe we can put our heads together and help tie them in,
in the event that there is anything im supposed to be seeing here.
