Been watching the thing on PBS about Monsanto's monopoly over soybeans. Farmers feel so helpless they think that they cannot fight back, in the land of the FREE and the home of the BRAVE. When farmers of all people start feeling helpless, then you know it MUST be time for the rest of us to get up off our lazy asses and do something about it. Come on, its our FOOD we're talking about, get it? The Soy-Based product you might be eating that's stranded you on you're couch. Yeah, I know, you were only resting for a minute :D. Minute's up. Lets get up and put a stop to this Monsanto taking control of soybean seeds thing. When I am done with this issue, lets jump on another one. This site needs a priority thing that we can all get behind one at a time and actually make it happen. What do you think?
I started this petition long ago, hell, I had forgotten about it. Yeah, I know, but it happens. Well anyway, in the meantime I've learned alot more about the evils of Monsanto, and talk about a pack of bloody monsters that need to be taken down or taken out. Corn, soybeans, hell, a few other things I can't recall at the moment are all basically unfit to eat now in this country and a few others, and yet, we can't even have it labeled in order to avoid it?
Studies have been done that show that over time, our children's children will become basically infertile if we keep feeding them this generational time-bomb, and yet. . .
Did you know that Monsanto has engineered a gene in some of these foods now that only allow their seeds to be fertile for a single generation? When these things eventually infest all natural versions of these vital foods, we will become totally dependent upon them. . .
Farmers, Congress, our whole system has either been duped or bullied into this food NIGHTMARE, and we all will suffer the consequences, if not now, then in the future. But hell, maybe future generations being mostly unable to breed is a good thing in the long run, but I'd rather go about that sort of thing in a planned, controlled way rather than some corporation only interested in the bottom line doing it by accident, wouldn't you?
