No evidence there was any "infiltration". Unless you call going to rallies infiltration.

Of course, there's no reason that Monsanto would want to protect its employees and operations, is there?

What is Monsanto's agenda?
To increase crops and feed humanity?
To increase their spread sheet?
To lock up the market on all food for humanity?
To increase the sales and lock them in of all food seeds?


Now I ask this, before GMO crops were people starving from lack of crops?
No unless you throw in droughts and floods and whatever comes your way stuff for farmers.
But in the above situations the import/export thing worked just fine, got a shortage of wheat well we can send you a million tons tomorrow.

We have a shortage of corn right now can you send us a million tons .......yes indeed.
For the life of me I cannot fathom why people defend Monsanto.....Chemical King of the world.

One last note, we are fortunate to live in a city with a huge amount of farms just 10 minutes away. And I ask this to all posters do you actually know a farmer/ bought direct from a farmer/ spent any time talking to a farmer?

If you can ever talk to a local farmer you might be surprised about the information you receive regarding farming practices and Chemical Companies.

Its a possibility, I am just trying to stick to what I can find supporting news
for. Either way, its still damning, IMO that Monsanto needs to go infiltrate
groups against GMO.

They have everything to hide.

But perhaps you can present some evidence of that "infiltration" of these groups?

I have yet to look at your links, somehow I dont think they relate to what I am
saying about Monsanto having everything to hide.

Let me clarify. I mean to say that I think Monsanto is a very odd company,
I know hundreds of brands that WANT their name on their product.

Why does Monsanto fight to the end against GE labeling?

Seems odd to me, and hundreds of thousands of other people,
over a Million people signed the petition to have GE labeling.

So....Bayer will label their aspirin, but wont label their corn.
Why?

We all know why, if they put a label on it, it might as well be
a skull and crossbones.

Quite simple. Because it will cost them and others involved in agribusiness money. (It will also cost consumers money.) Because it will open them and others in agribusiness to more lawsuits when food which is not labeled turns up with trace amounts of GMO material.

I really don't care one way or the other about it, except that it will raise prices. Go ahead, label it. It won't make any difference to me. I'll still buy it.

Your first link is not working.

Thats a wierd link you posted Phage, mind telling the folks here
what that is? It leads to now where, just a caution for everyone.


Your second link is 5 years old!
(Outdated statistics much???)

About the FBI and ecoterrorism.

Well to set the record straight I dont condone any type of violence,
eco or non eco. I dont think The U.S. No 1 problem is eco terrorism either,
(since that article you linked is 5 years old, I doubt that is relevant at this point)
The Boston Bombings, Fort Hood Shooting, Comumbine, Colorodo shootings,
and 9/11 all come to mind, none of which were eco terrorism.

Anywho....your preaching to the choir on that one.

Sure labels cost money, but nearly all food is already labeled. So its a no brainer,
just change the label. Thats a load of BS if your buying that story, I am not.

The processes and procedures for tracking all the raw ingredients that go into our food does not come without a price. Or do you think all the wheat in that loaf of bread comes from the same farm?

Good. Those are the kind of groups that Monsanto is worried about.
More current? How about this? Not Monsanto, but GMO research stations being attacked by activists.

Moving quickly, the men surrounded the night watchman. Shining their flashlights in his face and threatening him with pepper spray and clubs, they frisked him, took his flashlight and keys, and smashed his cell phone. Then they headed directly for their target, a potato patch the size of a tennis court. Within minutes, the potatoes—part of a research project run by the nearby University of Rostock to see if rabbit vaccines and plastic polymers could be grown in plants—had been ripped out of the ground or trampled.

Again, preaching to the choir, perhaps you could start a thread about it.

True, Google scrubs articles on a regular basis, and admits that it does so,
on the orders from headquarters.

Thanks for your comments Iwinder, and good point on the shortage of corn.
I read months ago farmers were left to feed their cows gummy worms, and
candy corn as a substitute. So much for the agenda of ethanol, and GMO
corn. Some ideas are just bad out of the gate, and only get worse with time.

GMO corn is one of those really bad ideas.

Logic says that is who they would be concerned about. But here's a source. Of course, you'll have problems with it.

Well, Monsantos worries, really not my cause, it may be yours.

I posted this thread as I see it as a legal matter, that Monsanto has
Genetically Engineered wheat, the wheat was not approved for production,
yet somehow it "escaped" and has contaminted non GMO wheat, and now
farmers on the hook for growing it, and then they can not sell it, as an import
it was rejected.

Thats a huge loss for the farmers, I hope they prevail in their lawsuit.

Cool. We're back on topic.
The few times the merits of the case were actually touched on were quite interesting. But according to what alpha1 said, there wasn't a lot of hurt on wheat prices.
