The proposal of HR 875 has triggered a vociferous response by a spectrum of citizens ranging from small, organic farmers fearing being regulated out of existence to the watchers of big brother's world wide domination of food and water. Loudest among the cries is Linn Cohen-Cole, whose campaign to prevent its passage was highlighted at Crooks and Liars the other day. Yesterday Nonny Mouse revisited the post in an attempt to correct some distortions of the facts in Cohen-Cole's declarations and to invite their Director of Public Affairs, Bradley Mitchell, to make a statement on Monsanto's behalf.

For a great example of corporate white wash hitting the whirling blades of the anti-fans and shown to be more of the same old shit it has always been, read the comments as the piranhas strip Mr. Mitchell's body of lies and rejoinders down to the bare bones of Monsanto's true agenda. The facts that their GMO seeds are designed solely to be the only survivor left in a field saturated in their earth poisoning herbicide, Roundup, and not to be, as they have been proven wrong to claim, more productive or nutritious than natural seed, are only details in their larger wrong headed plan to double food production by 2050 to keep up with the planet-consuming human population as an alternative to our adopting a new, less prolific human reproduction paradigm. In 2050, following the UN and Monsanto's plan, there will also be at least twice as many starving people wondering why they were made to exist. Our attitude about the effects of overpopulation are parallelled by the neglect that allowed unregulated greed to crash world economies. The planet is far from infinite.

Lucid piece Dood - I fear the seeds have already been sown - at some stage the vermin will consume everything.

I wonder if Roundup works on fat slugs?
