Too many wolves in sheep's clothing have risen to power to do their misdeeds and gotten away with it in the past by complacency and gullibility on the part of the people who were able to be successfully bamboozled.

Why couldn't that happen here considering the same mentality of half the populace and a media tied around the finger of the power elite who are clearly abusing that power?

This concerns me greatly.

The GMO patents reveal that companies are developing suicide seeds whose genetic traits can be turned on and off by an external chemical "inducer" -- mixed with the company's patented agrochemicals.

In the not-so-distant future, we may see farmers planting seeds that will develop into productive (but sterile) crops only if sprayed with a carefully prescribed regimen that includes the company's proprietary pesticide, fertilizer or herbicide. The latest version of Monsanto's suicide seeds won't even germinate unless exposed to a special chemical, while AstraZeneca's technologies outline how to engineer crops to become stunted or otherwise impaired if not regularly exposed to the company's chemicals.

It's best to just assume that GMOs are no different from biological weapons you idiot?

Since when is eating genetically modified shit good for you idiot? Hell the seeds can't germinate..

OBAMA MAY NOT BE A VICTIM BUT HE IS FULLY CONTROLLED...You and them should all be arrested and tried for crimes against nature and human kind. You are corrupt, evil and a dope!

You deranged democrats and Obama bin Lying are poisoning the world food supply and all you can do is be a complete idiot...

My best guess is that Galt like Flack probably owns Monsanto stock so they aren't going to be marching anywhere.

As long as they are making money people could grow tails from the Monsanto seeds and they wouldn't give a sh!t.

<quoted text>Sterile Seeds: Why Worry? "These technologies are extremely dangerous," explains "because over 1.4 billion farmers - primarily poor farmers in Africa, Asia and Latin America - depend on farm-saved seed as their primary seed source. Monsanto GMO seeds do not germinate. If farmers can't save seed, they can't continue to adapt crops to their unique farming environments, and that spells disaster for global food security, meaning all seeds must be purchase cronies like Monsanto"
"Genetic seed sterility is not about improving the productivity or quality of crops, it's a quest to increase seed industry profits." "First and foremost, these technologies are intended to force farmers to buy seed every season and to take still more crop production control away from farmers and rely on GMO's."
Farmers can buy their seed elsewhere.

Consumers can decide whether they care.

Congressman Who Gets Millions In Farm Subsidies: Food Stamps Stealing ‘Other People’s Money

Fincher invoked the Bible in his defense of the devastating cuts, quoting,“The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.”

At a Holiday Inn in Memphis over the weekend, Fincher expanded on his version of the Christian social gospel:“The role of citizens, of Christians, of humanity is to take care of each other, but not for Washington to steal from those in the country and give to others in the country.”

While Fincher interprets food assistance for the needy as “stealing,” he has not similarly condemned the Farm Bill’s massive agricultural subsidies. In fact, he supported a proposal to expand crop insurance by $9 billion over the next 10 years. Fincher has a great personal stake in maintaining these particular government handouts, as the second most heavily subsidized farmer in Congress and one of the largest subsidy recipients in Tennessee history:

USDA data collected in EWG’s 2013 farm subsidy database update — going live tomorrow –shows that Fincher collected a staggering $3.48 million in “our” money from 1999 to 2012. In 2012 alone, the congressman was cut a government check for a $70,000 direct payment. Direct payments are issued automatically, regardless of need, and go predominantly to the largest, most profitable farm operations in the country.

Fincher’s $70,000 farm subsidy haul in 2012 dwarfs the average 2012 SNAP benefit in Tennessee of $1,586.40, and it is nearly double of Tennessee’s median household income. After voting to cut SNAP by more than $20 billion, Fincher joined his colleagues to support a proposal to expand crop insurance subsidies by $9 billion over the next 10 years.

‘There’s weather weapon stuff going on’
I saw we feed and nurture this, let's drive these people out of their minds and into Carolville. Flack is probably staring up at the sky as we speak searching for drones and dark clouds.

In fact I think I overheard someone in the Obama administration relaying a conversation they heard:

Obama: Darn all these low level scandals of which I have no control over and played no part in but the Republicans and their mouthpiece Fox News keep trying to pin to me.

Top advisor: What about a distraction?

Obama: Well we do control the weather plus we have this huge stockpile of bullets and of course my standing army.

Just think of all the corrupt things I am and have been doing you don't know about.
Nixon was a boy scout compared to me.
You can trust me though! Honest!
One writer for the Washington Post - who was even neutral on the Benghazi scandal - said the Obama administration is getting away with high crimes and misdeameanors Richard Nixon could only dream of.
