Have a nice day!
“The tyranny of a prince in an oligarchy is not so dangerous to the public welfare as the apathy of a citizen in a democracy.” – Charles de Montesquieu
Go the Hell away!! I’m so tired of you trolls!!
It’s Moron Maddy! How are you today, Moron Maddy? I hope you are well. Looks like you pulled your head out of Obozo’s butt long enough to spew your hate. You can put your head back in there. Obozo needs all the morons he can get to believe his lies and overlook his corruption.
Thanks for the laugh you clown (get it Bozo). As usual, always a joke and a laugh. Noone takes you seriously knowing full well you work for FAUX news!
Give a mentally challenged individual a puzzle of a serene landscape and ask him to put the puzzle together, it won’t be the picture of a serene landscape that he/she would put together, but the jagged, twisted landscape of that person’s mental illness. . . Seek help, Bozo the Clown, before your mental illness and sick perversion completely overwhelms you.
It’s Retard Robbie speaking from experience!
Have a nice day, fool!
“In general, the art of government consists of taking as much money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other.” — Voltaire (1764)
I think you have a serious obsession with our President, Bozo. That’s how President Obama would look after smelling that decayed fish smell rising from your putrid vagina.
You are off topic. Give us your opinion on allowing Monsanto to do whatever the H* they want to do, without any legal restraint. There is a bill in Congress which, if passed, would PROHIBIT ANY COURT from ordering them not to plant GM seeds that are not tested for safety. How do you feel about that? Would you feel differently if a different President were in office?
Instead of throwing out your canned hatred of our President, why not make a constructive suggestion now and then? How SHOULD we, as a nation, solve our problems? Or do you feel that some problems should be left UNSOLVED until a President you like gets into office? We really want to know what you think about something ELSE besides “me no like Obama.”
That may be the extent of his thought capacity.
ObozoMustGo should go for good from here.
We should kill Monsanto before it kills us.
Farmers do not have to use Monsanto products if they don’t want to. They are free to buy what ever seed they wish. The problem is that the seeds from Monsanto yield superior crops and are not effected by the weed killer roundup.
If you don’t like Monsanto don’t buy their stuff.
Actually, there are problems that go beyond freedom of choice. Some scientists have reported that the genes in Monsanto crops that give the resistance to Roundup, making it possible for Monsanto to make even more money selling Roundup, have been detected NATURALLY TRANSFERRING TO THE WEEDS that Roundup is designed to kill. Farmers who choose not to use Monsanto seeds are not protected from being invaded by the seeds of those resistant weeds. The result is that their CROPS may be killed INSTEAD of their weeds!
I don’t know if you are merely ignorant of the facts or you choose to ignore them.Your claims that Americans are living longer due to eating food produced from Monsanto GMO seeds is patently false.This is not a matter of choosing to use or not use Monsanto seeds.
Farmers are taking a stand against Monsanto,launching a landmark lawsuit against the mega corporation for widespread genetic contamination.Monsanto’s aggresive agenda to genetically alter the planet will result in a severe threat to the organic integrity of farms worldwide.Many “organic” farms have already been contaminated with GMO crops as nearly 93% of soybeans are now genetically modified due to contamination.
The Public Patent Foundation filed a lawsuit in March 2011 in a case known as Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association[OSGATA] et al versus Monsanto.The suit was brought in the name of individuals and organizations threatened by Monsantos’ widespread GMO crops: family farmers,farming organizations,and seed businesses.
The intent of the case is to dispute Monsantos claims on gmo seeds and ultimately safeguard farmers from Monsantos own vicious lawsuits.Between 1997 and 2010,Monsanto filed 144 lawsuits against American farmers.Another 700 were settled out of court for unknown amounts.Monsanto has an agenda to take out American family farms and dominate the agriculture industry with their own mutant seeds.Monsanto operates the same practice outside the U.S. driving thousands of poor family farmers in places like India,to suicide by ruining their family farming practices.
Time for you to wake up boy.Monsanto is not your friend.Their ultimate goal is to not only rule the worlds farming production,but to reduce the worlds population,making a profit while doing so.
Mark, that’s one of the most informative posts I have ever read on the NatMemo – and I read this rag with regularity. Of course, not knowing the front end of a cow from the back, I cannot comment as to the verity of what you’re saying, but I’m willing to give you the benefit of the doubt because you sure as hell seem to know what you’re talking about. Kudos to you, Squire, and thanks for waking me up to problems I never knew existed – and explaining the cartoon to me.
Glad to be of service.I first became aware of Monsanto when I was in my late teens and early twenties[I’m sixty one now],when the Vietnam War was still raging and Monsanto was involved in the production of agent orange.Those at Monsanto really are not nice people.
I’ll share a story but you will have to forgive my lack of certain details due to the passage of time. I was astounded when I learned of this. A poor subsistance farmer in a third world country struggles to support himself and family and lives for the day when his crop of rice,beans,corn etc. will annually and dependably produce high yeilds and profits.He has been born into a culture where everything he is or hopes to be is grounded in his abilities as a farmer and he wants to do well as it will permit him to gain a wife and have children.
Then comes the day when this poor farmer is approached by a Monsanto connected individual, a salesman, who tells the farmer if he purchases and plants Monsanto GMO soybeans that he will enjoy great success and become rich. The farmer signs the contract,recieves the beans and plants them.He soon learns that he must also purchase weed killer[Roundup] to combat the weeds which are virulent where he lives.He now has spent nearly all of any money he may have had on seed and chemicals and all of his hopes lie in the ground.If he is a farmer who has no money to make the purchase outright,then a predetermined amount is set to be paid upon sale of the crop.So the farmer is on the hook,but so is the one who already paid for the seed and chemicals.
An ancient worldwide practice is the saving of a portion of the crop for seed to be used in the coming years planting.The seeds are saved,shared,bought and sold and the seed business is an industry unto itself.The Monsanto contract forbids this so the farmer is obligated to purchase more Monsanto seed,oh and don’t forget those nasty weeds will once again require an additional dosing of Roundup.
The farmer may choose to terminate the Monsanto contract and return to his old methods but finds that after a season or two of using the gmo seeds and the Roundup that his natural seeds produce more poorly than before and the weeds that are not treated this year are worse than they have ever been.Sadly, the crop fails,the farmer is exhausted as he has made no progress against the weeds,he has no food for himself or his family,and any money he may have is owed to Monsanto for his previous purchases.He quickly realizes that he is on a treadmill and that his situation is hopeless.His dreams are dust and he is a failure in the eyes of his culture and himself,so he kills himself.
Now imagine this scenario repeating itself countless times in countless places all over the world and that it is happening as I type this.Everyday. I am in no way a religous man and I am not a bible thumper however I do believe in the God of my understanding. If ever there was a manifestation of Satan and outright evil on earth,Monsanto would fill the bill.
There are already multitudinous reasons to despise our so-called “Titans of Industry”; this is only one more. I wonder where these avaricious capitalists think they’re going to find sanctuary after they’ve fouled the nest to the point where it will no longer support human life… I suppose it’s a moot question because the peasants will take up their pitchforks long before then, drag these vermin from their ivory towers and separate them from their heads.
Thanks again for you thoughtful and thought provoking posts. Keep up the good work. I’ll see you at the polls next year when we kick the crap out of the Repugs again.
You are completely ignoring the fact that farmers that never have bought Monsanto seeds are being sued for patent infringement when the farmer’s crop gets partially inseminated by Monsanto crops in nearby seeds. There are farmers who have been driven to bankruptcy who neither bought nor wanted Monsanto products but their grain had Monsanto genes from cross pollination and they lost big time in court.
