Monsanto and Big Food Pull Out the Big Guns


muncievoice.com

Monsanto and Big Food are taking the battle for consumers’ hearts and minds to the next level. And it’s no coincidence that they’re pulling out the big guns just as the Washington State I-522 campaign to label genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in food products is gaining steam.

The giant chemical companies Monsanto, Bayer, Dow and a few others are now resorting
to a new propaganda campaign, complete with a new propaganda website,
a front group, and a slick public relations firm to help change the "evil" image.


Bottom line, they need us to keep funding their bottom line of greedy corporate profits.
They desperately want us to keep buying that GMO; transgene crops loaded with toxic
pesticides; viral genes, and animal hormone laden dairy and meat.


Monsanto just wants to "talk" "nice" They want questions?
Well, here are a few openers!


We will stop Monsanto!

Their image is hurting them, 93% of people want GMO's labeled, and they
are now pulling out all stops to fight it again!

From the company the brought us DDT, Agent Orange, dangerous pharmaceuticals
The Terminator Gene, and PCBs., surely we can not expect transparent and truthful answers?

Hey, well they asked for it! Looks like we can fight back by doing
what we do best. Asking questions, and a visible stand against the
lies, propaganda and the toxic transgenic's.

So get ready they have launched on us. Have you noticed?

OOOhhh Boy !!

I bet that Q&A site will be chock full of 'planted' questions that will be easily answered.

This is going to be good.

Definitely shill-city.

I think I'll get in there and ask about some compelling issues.

Let's see if the questions even get published ?

Now, be careful - you know they hired blackwater, Xe, or whatever name the jack-booted storm troopers are going by now. Don't want your front door kicked in at 3 AM.

Maybe that should be the first question asked.

Yeah they are even using [snipped] on ATS to further their agenda of world domination and destruction of mother earth.

Don't be fooled and keep on shining light on all the evil Mosanto did and wants to continue doing.

Don't worry.

I have an anonymous location I can post from, and communicate with.

All precautions taken......

Yes, probably. And here is the trick they have up their sleeve,
all of their frankenstein crop engineering is propietary!

And they dont have to disclose the pesticides they load
the corn with, they dont have to disclose anything!

You found the quote!

It doesn't matter. The Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act specifically bars the F.D.A. from including any information about pesticides on its food labels.

I thought about Maryanski's candid and wondrous explanations the next time I met Phil Angell, who again cited the critical role of the F.D.A. in assuring Americans that biotech food is safe.

But this time he went even further. ''Monsanto should not have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food,'' he said. ''Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the F.D.A.'s job.''

They have been handed a license to lie!

The full length award-winning documentary Seeds of Death:



GMO proponents argue:

“that each gene had a single, unique, independent function,
and that moving a gene from one plant or animal to another would allow that gene to express
that particular function wherever and however it was located.” Now that our understanding of
genetic functions has advanced substantially, in fact is transformed from the unsophisticated
linear thinking of the past, the corporate argument is completely false.

Genes are also involved in other cellular regulatory processes and not just simply expressing traits. For this reason, the genetic engineering of plants is now being shown to disrupt the entire cellular mechanisms of an organism and we are only beginning to observe its detrimental effects.

Its the battle for the bees too, we need them, and they need us to put an end to the bee extinction!

Crimes against humanity, crimes against the bees!


James Strange, a research entomologist and bumblebee specialist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service, said perhaps as many as 20 percent of the 38 or 40 (depending on how you count them) species of bumblebee in the U.S. are in trouble.

Essentially, this is the story of our age, whether it’s birds, butterflies, amphibians, or small mammals. Biodiversity is taking it on the chin

Well, now maybe it is time for Obama to hold up to his end of the bargain. He promised voters that he would ensure GMO labeling if he was elected. He got the votes, now he has to ante up. Immediately....

Danbones,

Maybe its going to have some skull and crossbones only
slightly different than what we expected!



"If you put a label on genetically engineered food you might as well put a skull and crossbones on it." - Norman Braksick, president of Asgrow Seed Co., a subsidiary of Monsanto, quoted in the Kansas City Star, March 7, 1994

Monsanto wins, and in many years this religious food movement will shift to something else and everyone will forget about it.

Guess he forgot about that, they planted that organic garden,
yet that administration backs Monsanto, and the other large chemical companies.

"GMO, its for the people not the rulers!"

I think monsanto is for the people, they provide cheap food for everyone. I don't think a company that charges 4 times as much for food because it uses "less" everything and is organic is really for anyone but the wealthy. All this organic crap is based on faith based health benefits and keeping up the appearance that you can afford to spend extra money on a stupid luxury.

Organic food is cheaper!

And, as more and more farmers get away from the death grips of
Monsanto, and its cycle of pesticides, and overgrown weeds,
there will be more farmers who are free to produce sustainable;
sustainable and organic crops are going to get less expesive


And, lets face it. The overkill with the pesticide is failing.
Failing crops cost money!


A stunning multi-year study in Africa by the United Nations Environment
Programme provides an answer. High external inputs of chemicals and
fertilizers are needed for conventional industrial agriculture and it is for this
kind of agriculture that GM crops are designed. UNEP found in side-by-side
trials conducted in multiple countries that farmers using agroecological
science outperformed farmers using conventional approaches by up to 179%.responsibletechnology.org...



Transgenic GMO crops were an experiemnt, on us!
And they have not passed the test of public acceptance.

And it sucks the life out of the farmers too!



A new peer-reviewed study published in the International Journal of Agricultural Sustainability
examined those claims and found that conventional plant breeding, not genetic engineering, is
responsible for yield increases in major U.S. crops. Additionally, GM crops, also known as
genetically engineered (GE) crops, can’t even take credit for reductions in pesticide use.




The study compared major crop yields and pesticide use in North America, which relies
heavily on GE crops, and Western Europe, which grows conventionally bred non-GE crops.
The study’s findings are important for the future of the U.S. food supply, and therefore for the
world food supply since the U.S. is a major exporter of many staple crops.

Just figure in the long term bills from all of your health problems
and Organic and Sustainable is way cheaper!

And it tastes better too!

We dont want to spend our lives funding Monsanto share holders!

Not its not, look at the price tags of the food. Organic is crazy expensive for no real reason other than greed, yet Monsanto is the giant greedy bad guy.

And it tastes better too!

Yet every study done cannot verrify that there is any difference in health or the taste of the two foods. Its religion, faith based garbage that does not hold up to real science.



We dont want to spend our lives funding Monsanto share holders!

And then this is where the true idiocy shines through. If you don't like monsanto, don't buy their food. Buy and eat organic. Why should everyone have to deal with these fundie organitards and their demands? If everyone really hated Monsanto they would be out of business.
