Monsanto itself contributed more than $500,000 to federal candidates in the last election cycle, primarily favoring Republicans. Monsanto spent nearly $6 million on lobbying in 2012, down from its $8.8 million record in 2008. That's still enough to keep Monsanto the big guy on the agribusiness block -- it has spent the most on lobbying by far in the industry since 2008; the American Farm Bureau is the only other to even come close. The majority, by far, of Monsanto's lobbyists have made at least one trip through the revolving door; in-house lobbyist Michael Holland, Jr., for instance, logged 13 years working for various House Republicans before he jumped to Monsanto in 2011.

Monsanto=Agent Orange which has cost the US Government Billion$ in a failed military effort/experiment. Over $2 billion already paid to Vietnam vets retroactively and that shit is still causing birth defects in Vietnamese children.

Monsanto fought the legislation tooth and nail until the company was deemed immune from prosecution. Bill Clinton finally signed the veterans agent orange legislation twenty years after the war ended.

Oklahoma Agenda 21 Bill Leads To Tea Party Threat Against State Senator

An Oklahoma tea party leader has threatened to turn a Republican state senator into a "laughing stock" and "dig into" his family members and associates unless he backs a bill blocking the United Nations' sustainability agenda.

State Sen. Cliff Branan (R-Oklahoma City) referred a March 26 email from Al Gerhart, co-founder of the Sooner Tea Party, to the state Bureau of Investigation, newsok.com reported. The email attacks Branan for not holding an immediate hearing on a bill to ban local governments in Oklahoma from implementing parts of the U.N. sustainability agenda, better known as Agenda 21.

“Get that bill heard or I will make sure you regret not doing it," Gerhart wrote in the email. "I will make you the laughing stock of the Senate if I don't hear that this bill will be heard and passed. We will dig into your past, your family, your associates and once we start on you there will be no end to it. This is a promise.”

Gerhart told newsok.com that he sent the email and acknowledged it was a political threat. He denied he intended it as a physical threat.

“We want to know what is going on down there," Gerhart told newsok.com . "We want to know if his wife has got a criminal history. We want to know everything about him. We want to find out if this man is a responsible citizen, if he's even got his family under control much less control of his office."

The Oklahoma legislation has passed the state House of Representatives, but Branan has not brought it before the Senate Energy Committee, which he chairs.

Agenda 21, drafted in 1992 but not ratified by the U.S. Senate, encourages sustainable development, including bike paths, mass transit and walkable communities. The plan does not contain the force of law in the U.S.

Conservative groups, led by the John Birch Society, have denounced the plan, falsely claiming it would take away private property rights and force people to live in urban centers. They have also wrongly maintained that it would end golf courses, scuba diving and floor tiles. The John Birch Society has advocated for people to pressure state and local officials to pass legislation rejecting Agenda 21, enlisting PTA presidents and milkmen in the effort.

Oklahoma state Sen. Patrick Anderson (R-Enid), sponsor of the anti-Agenda 21 bill, said in December that he wanted to preserve private property rights.

States around the country, most of them Republican-led, have taken up legislation to either prohibit the enactment of Agenda 21 by local governments or to pass resolutions opposing the plan. Democrats have largely dismissed the Agenda 21 criticism as tinfoil hat madness.

Everyone is dependent on government you vomitous cretin. Corporations are especially dependent on roads built by the government to move their goods they depend on local police and fire departments to protect their property and the courts to enforce their contracts and property rights. We depend on the government to keep our air and water clean. Workers depend on government regulations to keep workplaces safe so that a job is not an exercise in survival.
You're an idiot!
We are the government. We built the roads. We pay for police and fire protection. We create jobs and pay the salaries of government jobs. The government works for us.

This is what trips up the radical left.

Once you start using phrases like "dependent on government", you've surrendered to the power of a few to control the many.

This is what we must resist. We have the power to govern ourseleves. It's what makes us who we are.

It's obvious the libtard's here are extremely jelous of my success. They don't believe I fully intend to crown myself the new King of England. All I have to do is continue buying up any and all available properties no matter what the cost and take over the country incrementally. Why is that so hard to believe? They are in denial because they can't ever conceive of doing such a thing themselves. It's a little thing called being productive. Which, as I'm sure everyone on here can attest to, is my middle name. Look at all the posts and judgits I produce. Bwahaaaaaaaaaaha!

We want to avoid paying thousands of dollars to attorneys trying to construct what marriage inherently provides, only to find our wills contested after we die and family members we don't even like stealing from our spouses.
We want the same basic respect (from the law, not from people) when it comes to making our own family arrangements: wills, hospital decisions, health insurance decisions, etc.
We want our freedom of religion. We were married by a Reverend who regularly married heterosexual couples, and those couples are recognized under the law. The government doesn't get to tell our Reverend who can be married.
We want to stop having to explain to people what we are, where we had it done, if it's legal and on what levels and in what states. We're married. It's very simple.
And whether you like it or not, it WILL be addressed under the law - soon.

It's that old say of sending a boy to do a mans job, but in opposite perspective. Obama is a man doing a boys (George W. Bush's) job! All of a sudden ya'll don't know the meaning of collateral damage now that Obama's in office. Yet you knew the meaning quite well when Bush executed hundreds of thousands of innocent iraqis & over 4,000 American service personnel all on the whim of a lie! A lie to disguise his true purpose behind the invasion, thievery of Iraq oil supplies. Countless military personnel have spoken out against that regime & told their true mission! If Pakistan wanted to stop the drone strike, they would stop harboring & hiding terrorist. Try have WMDs! They could easily take Obama's persistence as an act of war, but they won't. Because they've already been caught out there lying about Bin Laden & a couple other Al Queda leaders! You people don't seem to understand the meaning of war. Bet you'll learn when someone weak is president & another country invades us. You think they gonna be worried about innocent civilians? I seriously doubt it!

Some dogs are just deranged.

Go ahead, put two plates of chow down next to two pitbulls, watch which one slurps it up the quickest and heads for the others bowl.

Then stand there and "dog whisper" to them...
