<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.

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.

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.

<quoted text> 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?

Let the truth out,'No Surprize'.Of course, you're dismissing that it is DEMOCRATS who are proposing repeal of the 'Monsanto Protection Act clause' Cynically dubbed the "Farmer Assurance Provision," the Monsanto Protection Act allows Monsanto and other companies to ignore existing food safety rules, and continue selling genetically modified seeds even if a court has blocked them from doing so.

Even worse is how this shameful giveaway became law. It was inserted anonymously, and without review into the must-pass budget bill to avoid government shutdown in March. "Smuggled into the bill President Obama signed to avert a government shutdown in March was a sneaky little rider called the “farmer assurance provision.” It’s since come to be known as the Monsanto Protection Act, being very assuring to the biotech giant, if no one else. It allows farmers to plant genetically modified crops before they’ve been declared safe by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in defiance of court orders suspending planting until environmental reviews can be completed.

Once food-advocacy groups and then the general public found out about the quietly passed provision, outcry against it spread, in the form of petitions and even rare displays of bipartisan solidarity. On Monday, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) announced that he’s introducing an amendment to the Senate version of the farm bill that would repeal the Monsanto Protection Act in its entirety."

Genetic Seed Sterilization is it's the Holy Grail of the ag biotech industry and the obama administration.

The disclosure follows on the heels of a controversial patent unveiled last year, christened the "Terminator" that continues to generate worldwide protest and debate because it renders farm-saved seed sterile - forcing farmers to return to the commercial seed market every year.

The Terminator patent is jointly owned by the Obama bin Lying US Department of Agriculture and a Monsanto subsidiary, Delta & Pine Land Co.

From Biosafety to BioSerfdom: "We'll be hearing plenty of industry arguments in favor of engineered seed sterility and Traitor Technologies, but the ultimate goal," is not breeding benefits or biosafety, but bioserfdom."

"If Traitor technologies are developed for commercial sale, "farmers will be forced to surrender control of their seed supply and the Gene Giants will ultimately dictate what the farmer grows, how to grow it, and where to sell it. Seed sterility is not about insuring quality or productivity, it's a power grab by obama cronies pure and simple,".

No doubt.

Lois Lerner, director of IRS division that targeted conservative groups pleaded the fifth today, of course that was after violating others first for three years.

Aren't Democrats great?

Oh well, at least Obama signed off on a $100,000 bonus for her, his fellow criminal.

The U.S.A. is currently being run by a two-bit dictator and fascist, Obama.
