I saw this on several sites this morning, so I google " monsanto protection act, and got a lot of hits. Basically it seems to say monsanto can not he help responsible for any negative effects associated with gmo crops, either effects on humans or the environment.

It even overrules judicial review apparently.

Does anyone know more about this? Am I just reading too much fear porn?

Here are several links to this story from google search, please someone tell me that I am mistaken.

action.fooddemocracynow.org...
rockrivertimes.com...
www.infowars.com...

I can give a lot more sources if anyone wants them, though I would just suggest googling yourself.

Please someone in the know educate me about this, I hadnt even heard of it last year, not to mention this yeaes attempt.

...and the merging of Mega-Corporation with Government is nearly complete. The overlap from Finance to Big-Pharma to Big-Ag like Monsanto is now almost eclipse, by my estimation. It was several years ago that Pharma got their 'get out of lawsuits free' card for side effects to vaccines that go bad. It was to keep them from just not making any at all, as I recall. (Read: Extortion works well at that level, obviously). Now Monsanto and Big-Ag get their freebie and protection.

Everyone gets waivers and protection these days ..except John Q walking down Main street. We get treated like mushrooms (Kept in the dark and shoveled with ...well, what makes things grow) and then screwed to death at the end. Now Monsanto won't see their whole house fall down in 5 or 10 or 15 years when we all learn GMO makes Agent Orange look like something to drink as Kool-Aid.

I was going to post this up myself. This is just getting out of hand. There is not one good thing Monsatan does or stands for. They produce poisons and toxins, nothing else.

This definitely doesn't belong in general chit chat, hopefully a mod will move it to the appropriate forum so it gets proper attention. This is serious and needs to be stopped.


If approved, the Monsanto Protection Act would force the USDA to allow continued planting of any GMO crop under court review, essentially giving backdoor approval for any new genetically engineered crops that could be potentially harmful to human health or the environment.

What harm has been done to humans or the environment. That would be a good place to start...bring that evidence up as proof of why this outrage needs to be stopped.

Pretty hard to argue with actual damages that have occurred.

Wrabbit, your usually up on these kinds of things, and your scaring me because of my ignorance.

If this is true, why dont folks just burn the fields about a month before harvest when they are all dry and ready to go up? I bet one or two years at tops without a good yield, and knowing the reason for it, would change a lot of farmer
Minds abour using this crap.

How long must we suffer and allow ourselves to be abused? If I was a wife of an abusive man, I wouod have aaccidentally shoved him in a wood chipper years ago.

I guess I am one of the last of an old philosophy though, not enough "Dukes" left around in the world, too many punks who are afraid of getting an ass woopin to stand up for themselves, so they take a small ass whoopin every day, instead of one good one, that lets the bully know he doesnt wanna tangoe with you ever again.

But if the government will not hold Monsanto responsible...

then who could possibly hold Monsanto responsible...


Hey maybe somebody should contact the "rightful owners" of the "environment"...

And alert those People...

That their home is being VANDALIZED...

And the "authorities" refuse to intervene, refuse to stop the VANDALS, and refuse to prosecute these Criminals...

Management failure. Contact the owners.

Oh my god, my temper is going to get me drone killed one of these days.

I wasnt sure where it should go, so I stuck it here, under the assumption that the mods would b
est know where such a story belongs.

Hope does your naivete know no bounds? Have you been wearing blinders and ear muffs for the last decade?


The health risks of genetically-modified (GM) foods have been well-documented for anyone willing to learn the ugly truth but now, we have the "first ever and mostcomprehensive study of the effects of genetically modified foods on mammalian health" and things are uglier than we imagined. Researchers from the Committee of Research and Information on Genetic Engineering (CRIIGEN) and Universities of Caen and Rouen have linked organ damage with consumption of three varieties of Monsanto's GM corn, Mon 810, Mon 863 and NK 603.Gilles-Eric Séralini, a molecular biologist at the University of Caen, explains that the data "clearly underlines adverse impacts on kidneys and liver, the dietary detoxifying organs, as well as different levels of damages to heart, adrenal glands, spleen and haematopoietic system." Not surprisingly, Monsanto disputes the findings but in an e-mail to journalist Rady Ananda, Séralini explains:"Our study contradicts Monsanto conclusions because Monsanto systematically neglects significant health effects in mammals that are different in males and females eating GMOs, or not proportional to the dose. This is a very serious mistake, dramatic for public health. This is the major conclusion revealed by our work, the only careful reanalysis of Monsanto crude statistical data."

I can link terabytes of data for you if you want, it is a quite commonly know thing, though I am not suprised our resident " governments and large corporations are always looking out for us and not themselves." Expert, would be ignorant of this issue, as you seem to be ignorant of every single thing they do that hurts the people.

Please, I am having a bad day, and your just going to cause me to get another t and c violation with your " I dont follow, that clearly says the .gov is your friend on would never hurt you( while reading the NDAA)" stuff.

I am just going to ignore you, until such a time as reach highschool and learn US history, or stop reading your news on obamas blog.

Good day

After the huge, devastating quake in Haiti... whenever it was... the locals were given donations of GMO seed corn. Rather than plant it or even feed it to pigs, these starving people BURNED it like the trash it is. Reminded me of a saying I have kept in my heart since I heard it years ago:

"Do not eat your soul to fill your belly."

Heirloom maize which has been grown for *millenia* in small villages in Mexico, is now accidentally GMO. Inadvertently contaminated by cross-pollination. Heh, contamination like this actually happens so often that every time Monsanto plants another frankenflora, some innocent bystander ends up severely screwed.

And to top it off, these little throwback village farmers are now vulnerable to legal action brought by Monsanto (if they should so choose, it isn't unprecedented). Why? Intellectual property. It is a patent violation, they are considered to be "pirating" Monsanto's property, "genes" which Monsanto owns.
Something to think about if you think all the anti-intellectual-property-piracy legislation is just to go after video game torrenters and P2P music downloaders.

Well, from Monsanto's perspective, these people replanting or destroying these ants is copyright infingement, never mind all the harmful sideffects, money is not being funneled to them, THIS IS A CRIME OF THE HIGHEST ORDER!!!!!

I absolutely %*@#ing agree! Planet Earth is circling the drain. Monsanto's actions are inexcusable. The US government's collaboration with Monsanto is inexcusable.

They would probably genetically modify the next crop to be fire resistant

You are probably right.


I feel sick.

You really cover it pretty well. While I could write threads about Monsanto and what their contribution to the "Betterment of man through modern technology" has and is doing to us, I'm glad you jumped in with more info.

I'd just add that I'm 200 miles away from St Louis. Back when I chose an Occupy camp to go volunteer with, I had 4 within the same general 200 mile driving distance to choose from and a couple would have been in better areas than St Louis, anyway. So why that one? The day I arrived to volunteer as a full time resident was the day they protested Monsanto World Headquarters right there. It made it a really easy choice, actually ...and Monsanto is the embodiment of science turned sick for cash, IMO.

Thank you for serving your country.

MONSANTO NOW OWNS THE LAGEST PRIVATE ARMY IN EXISTANCE.....ACADEMI....FORMERLY BLACKWATER!
THEY ANTICIPATE THE REACTIONS OF THE PEOPLE WELL IN ADVANCE.
TIME TO STRIKE A BLOW FOR FREEDOM PEOPLE.....NEITHER THE GOVERMENT NOR THE COURTS ARE THERE FOR YOU

You guys scare me as much as I scare myself, I was totally thinking that when I made that comment. Then I just pushed the thought aside, " naw, they wouldnt really do that would they? ", but in the back of my mind was a little coice saying, " YES, yes they would you idiot!!!!"

Ugh.......

No it isn't, because then skeptics just argue the validity or factuality of those 'damages'.

You really shouldn't use Seralini's study as a source. It's been rejected as unscientific by six countries and an European food safety organization. Just one of the problems is that he refused to release the data to any other researcher, a violation of scientific procedures.
