Farm Wars

Use a GMO contaminated bag of conventional seed, get sued for patent infringement. By the way, expect contamination.

It’s a setup, the game is rigged, the fix is in. Monsanto sues if its agents find the company’s patented gene in your crop, even if you never bought its genetically engineered (GMO) seeds. But does that mean diddley squat to Monsanto?

No. Here is a bit of logic, Monsanto style:

If the plant is found in your possession, then that means you have used the seed. If you have used the seed, then you have agreed to the technology use agreement, and owe Monsanto your crop, your seed and your profits. It doesn’t matter how the seed actually arrived in your possession.

Just ask Percy…

 

GMO transgenic contamination is so widespread that even most seed suppliers cannot guarantee that the seeds they sell to farmers are not contaminated up to at least 2%.

The amount of GMO contamination that might be present in conventional alfalfa is not known. But a December 2011 report by Stephanie Greene, a geneticist with the USDA Agricultural Research Service, ARS, said that after Roundup Ready alfalfa was first deregulated in 2005 industry testing of conventional seed lots found levels of contamination as high as 2 percent.

In fact, there is no guarantee whatsoever that levels even higher have not contaminated our seed supply.

The default standard for certification as GMO free has been taken to be zero in many cases, although experience shows that meeting such a standard will be difficult.There have been proposals for setting maximum allowable levels in the range of 1 to 3%, and it is likely that some tolerance level above zero will be accepted in the future.

Anyone who has ever opened a bag of livestock feed knows about contamination. You cannot open a bag of oats or barley without finding a few pieces of corn. It happens regularly. It is commonplace. But now, the contamination is not simply a piece of corn or two, it is genetically engineered corn, or soy, or canola, or wheat, and it’s not just a grain or two. It’s widespread contamination that will only get worse the longer the genetically engineered monster is allowed to roam free.

Coexistence does not exist. This is a genetic takeover of the corporate kind. We need individual bans, folks. This issue is so urgent that I can’t even begin to express it. We know that the corporations pushing this stuff are big and mean and ugly. We also know that they survive off of our money.

Starve the beast before it starves us. And if you find GMOs trespassing on your property, demand that the company remove them. If it doesn’t, remove them yourself and send Monsanto the bill.

    Thank God for people like Percy! Did anyone notice that US Supreme Court case about a year ago with that Indiana farmer? The one that Thomas and Kagan should of recused themselves and didn’t! The farmer lost! He would have won if Thomas and Kagan would of recused due to conflict of interest, being they supported Monsatan before they became US Supreme Court Just-Us’s.

    2 Cents worth,
    My yohoo accounts been hacked numerous times. Lost 1000’s of hours of research! I went to yandex and haven’t had any problems with them after several months. Guess because they’re from Russia and not supported by Al-CIA-duh.

  2. People need to be raising absolute HELL to get Monsanto, for its shareholders, to disclose every organization to which its senior executives and board members belong—including organizations which they don’t list in any Who’s Who In America biographical detail on themselves. The most problematic organization, and one I’ve seen Monsanto connected to a few times over the years is—“The Pilgrims Society.” This group was formed in 1902-1903 as an alliance between the looters of the centuries old British Empire and the 19th century North American “Robber Barons” and old-line Colonial families who received large scale Crown land grants! The Pilgrims Society refuses disclosure of its roster.
