Pure Evil : Monsanto

Postby scott on Mon May 08, 2006 11:44 am

Can't believe this one hasn't been done!

From developing Agent Orange to suing small family farmers and seed developers who've done nothing wrong, Monsanto is about as evil as it gets. The ugliest side of capitalism.

CRAP, WF: negative infinity to the infinity power

Check out the far right column on this website

Or listen to this guy, who after decades of designing his own canola plants through seed selection and preservation, had his crops get infested with Monsanto seed from a neighbor's farm, and then was sued to shit by Monsanto because their genetically engineered seeds were on his farm, thus making his crops their property. Because their seeds infested his farm against his will.

Monsanto = pure evil, genetically enhanced to increase the evilness.

Oh, and they refuse to pay reparations to veterans or civilians who were fucked by Monsanto's chemical product, Agent Orange. Douchebags.

It used to be that you couldn't patent living things or lifeforms, stuff like that. Because the laws were changed (at the thrust of Monsanto and their ilk) it's now possible to patent living things. Companies have gone into federal seed reserves, found seeds that weren't patented, and got patents on them! On seeds that grew naturally! The DNA for naturally occurring seeds belongs to douchebags like Monsanto. And if you grow it, your crops belong to Monsanto.

FUCK!!!

It's the effects of practices and policies like this that don't give me much hope for the future, even if many of us were to try to become self-sufficent.

Coorporations/countries/WTO, it's a main thrust of the major forces to privatize, monetize, and monopolize any resources they can get their hands on; they've done it with oil, the human genome, agriculture, even water. There are some inevitable effects that in the long-run will negate nature's ability to reestablish balance. From what I've learned, many of the GM seeds are programmed to only grow one season, so even if farmers decided to take their chances, they wouldn't be able to keep and use their seeds from one season to another.

Don't even get me started on nanotech, bioweapons, and nuclear waste. GM seeds just happen to be more insidious, because they aren't understood to be a threat. It's a clusterfuck of worldwide decimation. I usually try not to think about it.

Oh yeah. CRAP.

I just voted crap and then wished i'd clicked not crap.

Not because I think they are not crap but just to illustrate the silliness of the poll.

It's kind of like asking if AIDS is crap.

A friend of mine was having frequent headaches and I said to her, "Almost every time I see you, you're drinking a Diet Coke", and she said she had been drinking about six cans a day since the age of 15.

She agreed to cut way back and then stop totally and her headaches are practically gone and she seems more alert and focussed in general.

Aspartame is bad shit, one molecule removed from formaldehyde, apparently. You can pickle your brain with that crap, I think.

I cringe when I see parents pouring that diet pop down their kids' throats, and all the fast food full of bio-tech hormone beef and every variety of saturated fat, too...

BOO !!!!!

F#@K MONSANTO :evil:

While eating a bag of their red seedless grapes, I felt bad doing it.

I don't know if it was the pesticides, the nano-technology, or my disdain for the company....

...but I've looked @ the brand of grapes I buy from then on....

MONSANTO = CRAP of the stenchiest, most vile and constipatious order :twisted:

This thread, however obvious, should exist purely for venting hatred against the fuckers.

Bovine Growth Hormone... fuck

Reading about Monsanto makes me feel sad that im not doing everything in my power to protest these fucks. Then I look at Africa... it never ends.

I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned the Fox News/Monsanto cover-up of the rBGH story.

Crazy stuff.

That link took me directly to a forest of evil.

Artificial sweeteners are toxic, and since so many people who drink diet pop think they're just drinking calorie-free emptiness, they're chain drinkers of that shit.

I noticed that in the recent agreement between gov't and soft drink manufacturers to ban pop sales in grade schools, they do permit diet pop sales on high school campuses. Childhood obesity seems to be all they're trying to correct with these measures, everything else is off the table and under the rug.

Anecdotal evidence that aspartame disrupts memory has been growing since the sugar substitute was approved in the early 1980s, though attempts to prove the claim have so far been equivocal. Previous studies have tested memory by asking aspartame users to remember lists of words or numbers-- tests of short-term memory. But according to Timothy M. Barth, Ph.D., a psychology professor at Texas Christian University, those studies focused on the wrong type of memory.

In his study of 90 students, Barth found that participants who regularly drank diet sodas containing aspartame performed as well as nonusers on laboratory tests. However, aspartame users were more likely to report long-term memory lapses like forgetting details of personal routines or whether or not a task had been completed.

Food supply as strategic weapon, GM food as strategic weapon.
Agribusiness Giants To Gain Control Over Worldwide Food Supply

Some of this data is a couple of years old, but the article is current:
global research wrote:Early in the 1970s, agribusiness producers controlled US food supplies. They'd now go global on a scale without precedent. The goal - "staggering profits" by "restructur(ing) the way Americans grew food to feed themselves and the world." Ronald Reagan continued Carter's policy and let the top four or five monopoly players control it. It led to an unprecedented "concentration and transformation of American agriculture" with independent family farmers driven off their land through forced sales and bankruptcies so "more efficient" agribusiness giants could move in with "Factory Farms." Remaining small producers became virtual serfs as "contract farmers." America's landscape was changing with people trampled on for profits.

Engdahl explained a gradual process of "wholesale merger(s) and consolidation....of American food production....into giant corporate global concentrations" with familiar names - Cargill, Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Smithfield Foods and ConAgra. As they grew bigger, so did their bottom lines with annual equity returns rising from 13% in 1993 to 23% in 1999. Hundreds of thousands of small farmers lost out for it as their numbers dropped by 300,000 from 1979 to 1998 alone. It was even worse for hog farmers with a drop from 600,000 to 157,000 so 3% of producers could control 50% of the market.

The social costs were staggering and continue to be as "entire rural communities collapsed and rural towns became ghost towns." Consider the consequences:

-- by 2004, the four largest beef packers controlled 84% of steer and heifer slaughter - Tyson, Cargill, Swift and National Beef Packing;

-- four giants controlled 64% of hog production - Smithfield Foods, Tyson, Swift and Hormel;

-- three companies controlled 71% of soybean crushing - Cargill, ADM and Bunge;

-- three giants controlled 63% of all flour milling, and five companies controlled 90% of global grain trade;

-- four other companies controlled 89% of the breakfast cereal market - Kellogg, General Mills, Kraft Foods and Quaker Oats;

-- in 1998, Cargill acquired Continental Grain to control 40% of national grain elevator capacity;

-- four large agro-chemical/seed giants controlled over 75% of the nation's seed corn sales and 60% of it for soybeans while also having the largest share of the agricultural chemical market - Monsanto, Novartis, Dow Chemical and DuPont; six companies controlled three-fourths of the global pesticides market;

-- Monsanto and DuPont controlled 60% of the US corn and soybean seed market - all of it patented GMO seeds; and

-- 10 large food retailers controlled $649 billion in global sales in 2002, and the top 30 food retailers account for one-third of global grocery sales.

Easily one of the most criminally insane corporate persons.

Monsanto definitely makes the short list of companies and people that jeopardizing the the future of the planet over complete foolishness.
