Farm Wars

I would like to take us back to Anniston, Alabama, circa 1929 to 1971. Monsanto was the name, and soil contamination was the game. In a gesture of good will, this philanthropic corporation that had been manufacturing PCBs and other harmful chemicals in town “invited Anniston residents to use soil from the plant for their lawns.” Too bad it was never disclosed that this soil was a toxic waste product that would have needed special containment and would have cost a fortune to dispose of properly as it was extremely hazardous to human health. Instead, with smiles on their faces and philanthropy on the books, this magnanimous company literally gave away yards of this PCB laden stuff to unsuspecting families who are to this day suffering from the effects. “Sylvester Harris, 63, an undertaker who lived across the street from the plant, said he always thought he was burying too many young children. ‘I knew something was wrong around here,’ he said.

Since when is it acceptable to subject someone to something, say it’s safe, then hide behind legalese when your test subjects up and die from “mysterious circumstances?” When did this become the norm? When did this become acceptable? In whose abhorrent fantasy does this deviation from rational humanity exist? Welcome to the world of corporate greed. Welcome to the world of business.

And now, let’s fast forward to present time. With the PCB debacle firmly behind it, and never having admitted one shred of guilt for what it did, Monsanto has successfully morphed into a life sciences company, specializing in more poisons as well as transgenic frankencrops. Welcome to the world of biotechnology, Monsanto style. A world of cover-ups, subterfuge, and corruption so deep that it would take years to dig through the mountain of manure to find the pony that quite frankly, isn’t there. The promises are false. We are being fooled again, just like Anniston. Here, take this soil, it’s good for you. Here, take this GMO corn and the Glyphosate that goes along with it. They’re good for you. And just how many years down the road will it be when we find ourselves crying for help while Monsanto denys any wrongdoing?

Coming from the ranks of servants indentured to the king of the biotech industry, Monsanto, the GMO pushers know that the products they are creating are bad, just like in the case of Anniston, Alabama. They have to know. Do you think that one person, sitting on the side of a mountain with minimal technical skills and one rag tag computer knows more than the advanced scientific community of Monsanto, inc.? Do you really think that they don’t know about the numerous studies conducted overseas that prove genetic modification is dangerous? They know. Either that, or they are ignorant, stupid, or senile. And I don’t think they are any of the sort. Just paid enough to conveniently skew data in favor of the hand that feeds them. Money makes it so much easier to hold up in a cocoon, deaf, dumb and blind to the carnage going on just outside the door….

An open letter to GMO pushers, whoever you are…

Can you hear them? Can you hear the night screams of those independent farmers that have been pushed over by the corporate machine? Do the cries of children writhing in pain from your toxic garbage keep you awake at night, or do you just roll over and snore, oblivious to the destruction? How much money does it take to kill the pain? To effectively eviscerate a conscience? To cause the numbness necessary to be able to cast a blind eye to suffering caused by your actions? Just what is your honor worth? And just who is the highest bidder today? Inquiring minds want to know.

How does it feel to kill with impunity? To see the fruit of your labors fill hospitals with heretofore unknown diseases courtesy of your technology? Did you even bother to ask those whom you experiment on for consent? Or even give them the off-handed courtesy of quasi-labeling your concoctions so that they could effectively opt-out? NO! You did not! Instead, you haphazardly went on about your business, head buried up your grantor’s hind end, doing what was needed to carry on your pathetic life, while others “benefit” from your largesse. I applaud you! A finer example of human sludge I’ve never seen.

But don’t take it personally. You are merely doing your job for the good of your family and the world. Believe it while you can, because you are not exempt. Until you extract your head and realize that this experiment on humanity and the earth that supports our very lives cannot go on without dire consequences, then we, as a people and as a planet, are doomed to extinction of life as we currently know it. Not by flood, or by fire, but by genetic pestilence, the likes of which we have never experienced before.

So, buck up bubby, we are in for a ride. You, the GMO pushers, whoever you are, especially, because you know. You are complicit, and you have to live with the knowledge that what you see is what you made. And will you stand with that knowledge born squarely on your shoulders? Or will the weight of your guilt come crashing down and crush you in its wake? Will you finally kneel to what is right, or become dust in the wind? Your choice, and your choice alone.

    Hello no surprise

    Now, it’s not the end of the world because there are some people out here who do not wish to share in the violence and hate flim flam that provocateurs from all over are pushing with subtlety or in your face.

    The religious people, from most of the “churches”, “synagogues”and “mosques” etc are people who are deceived into thinking that fighting for “flag”, “country” and “god” is good. It definitely is not good.

    Those deceived religious people portray an extremely horrific example of The Creator of all of us; The Anointed One, Lord Jesus Christ. I wanted to point this out so others will not misunderstand. Your post was not accurate.
    Take care

  2. Jerry Alexander says:

    Do you neighbors work for “Monsanto”? What have you said to them about Killing Your Children,and your land?
    Those that work for “Monsanto” could care less about you,or,your children…What have you said to them? Do you socialize with them? Do you have a beer with them,and talk about their new truck,or,the wife`s new dress…What have you said to these people that are Killing you?

  3. Jerry Alexander says:

    All of this talk will get us nowhere.The Americans don`t really give a damn about the guy down the street,or,Monsanto until Monsanto hits home,their home that is.So called Americans go to work each day at Monsanto.They are willing to destroy their own children for a paycheck….and that`s all that matters to them..nothing else! Not even their own family..just a pay check so! do not expect any help from them,the Monsanto workers.Do you know of one? What have you said to the person you know about him,or,her killing your land,and family? Right! I didn`t think so.

  4. momoftwingirls says:

    Hi No Surprise, I have never, ever been a ‘religious ‘ person. I have a personal and loving relationship with Jesus. Jesus did not like the ‘religious ‘ at all. He came that we would have a relationship, not religion with Him. :-)

    Ann : Amen to that..I keep saying.”Even so, come Lord Jesus.” Revelation 22:20 KJV

    Lawrence, it is called the Dumbing down of America. Have you ever heard of Charlotte Isertby? She is in this documentary by the same name am it can be found on Youtube. Watch all of you who have kids..or not.

  7. Lawrence says:

    The American 2nd Amendment ~ Use it!

    I am a Canadian and I had lived in the US for a few years and travelled there many times before 2000 when I decided the moral decay and corruption there was just too much for me.

    I can tell you that, in my opinion and generally speaking, Americans live in a fantasy world watching far too much TV and far too many movies to ever be able to know anyone enough to trust them or understand them or understand any of the basic human social behaviors.

    It’s sometimes amazing to me that most Americans have demonstrated the social skills to meet and mate but it does not surprise me they have mostly not learned enough of them to raise their own children away from the blinking lights.

    America is not just awash with guns but with social, racial and ecological and medication inequities galore and there in lays the reason for the violence so very common in your country.

    The truth is that I have been watching America fall down it’s endless stair case of end of empire since I was a boy in the 60’s and Americans still can’t, wouldn’t or do not understand how to point their guns in the right direction, not at each other, but towards the sociopathic 1% or so who are controlling the country.

    To me it is clear as a bell that that the intention of the 2nd amendment was to make sure the 1/10. ¼, 1/2, 1 or 2 or 3 percent can’t seize control of the people exactly as they have done so now.

    I happen to agree with the 2nd Amendment but the 2nd Amendment requires it’s practitioners to be well educated to the human condition and to respect the rest of the Constitution at the same time. Especially the notion of Equal Protection Under The Law for most people but guns were allowed to rid the community of those who would become masters, kings or queens and controllers of the rest.

    God is not going to assist you.

    It is you who were given free will … All is lost if you do not turn your guns in the right direction!

    Our only hope is Yahweh and obedience to His Laws found in the bible. http://www.yahweh.com

  9. no surprise says:

    If we don’t resist, we get what we asked for.
    Brainwashed religious fanatics help no one, least of all themselves. The religions of the earth were put in place by the controllers. You’ve been programmed not to think or question and now they’re going to harvest you like the dumb animals you are. The rest of us don’t want to suffer for your ignorance, indulgence and complacency.

  10. Katherine says:

    Yes, true, Rabbit but then one never knows just whose conscience may be swayed. And as Terri so beautifully put it:

    It is time to ask for help.
    It is time to begin praying, respectfully asking for help.

    I could not agree more because I am sure that God Feels just the same as Terri does. We, today just don’t know or forget God’s True Character and Heart. If He Sees that people are beginning to take this seriously and have broken hearts about what’s going on in this world, and then they start praying directly to HIM constantly with a pure heart, you will see things change. But it has to come from a standpoint of selflessness and not from selfishness; to truly want to help those suffering no matter who they nor where they are.

  11. That is right Terri, they are chemtrails, not contrails. Whoever is saying we are crazy, they need to look up in the sky. I have to tell my family and friends this all the time. They refuse to believe me, or they are afraid of what I am saying is true.

    Hmm, just like the CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder) of the honey bees. These little bees, they allow us to eat all the food and drink all the apple, lemon, lime, oranges juices we have almost everyday of the year. These honey bees, whether they know it or not, are VII (Very Important Insects) to the food chaine, indeed.

  12. Barbara,

    I first heard of GMOs from reading Naturalnews (Mike Adams, The Health Ranger), Dr. Stan Monteith (Radio Liberty), Mercola, Infowars (Alex Jones) and Dr. Betty Martini (who is against asparame).

    In 2006, I was diagnosed with M.S., so I have done all I can to stay healthy eat clean foods. I am growing a small veggie garden right now, Heirloom Seeds only please, of tomatoes, zucchini, summer squash, jalepenos, white onions and hopefully strawberries and cantelope…

    Oh, and I am also ‘building’ my own, nasty smelling, compost pile in a trashcan since I have to place in my backyard for to put the leftover food from dinner or lunch.

    **Barabra, this is all by design. The Illuminati, Skull and Bones, CFR, Club of Rome, The Bill and Melinda Gates Fountation, etc..they are all into this eugenics ‘movement’. They want to see 90% of the human population exterminated, including themeselves and their relatives if need be.**

    These certainly are one sick bunch of ‘people’ if you ask me. In fact, they are henchmen for Lucifer himself. Yeah, that sounds about right.

    I have the Label GMO.org banner on both my blogs, TwiceBabiesMom and AllThingsHomemade. Since I do not drive anymore, I do all I can via the Internet, to spread the word out as far and wide as I can.

    God Bless you Barbara

  13. Rabbit says:

    You can only appeal to conscience when there is one to appeal to.

  14. Katherine says:

    Great informative site, Barbara, and excellent letter, Mr. Harrison. But please allow me to expand on your reply with just a few more points to buttress because the power grabbers in all spheres of life are too abnormally self elevated to be healthy for anyone; including themselves. My comments may seem off topic in part but in the end, they will not be. Thank you.

    Any content contained in the following [is never intended] to create, establish, promote or lead anyone towards hostility towards anyone at anytime.

    WARNING: TO THOSE IN POSITIONS OF “TRUST AND POWER”:

    GOVERNMENTS/CORPORATIONS/”RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS” “DENOMINATIONS” SECTS [ALL], AND MEDIA OF THIS WORLD. YOU WHO ARE KILLING PEOPLE AND LAND AND ALL FOR JUST WHAT!!?? MONEY?…GIVE ME A BREAK! YOU KNOW THE OLD SAY..YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU. PLEASE GIVE YOURSELVES A REALITY CHECK.

    PEDOPHILES AND OR PEDERASTS, KILLERS AND PETTY CROOKS PULLING OFF GRAND LARCENY ANYWHERE IN THIS WORLD FOR VARIOUS REASONS. (THOUGH VERY TEMPORARILY SO).

    THIS IS A MOST SERIOUS WARNING to YOU and all those who have sought and gained power positions everywhere in this world; including mostly all of media.

    ROOT OUT PEDOPHILES AND ALL CRIMINALS IN YOUR GOVERNMENTS AND ORGANIZATIONS NOW. YOU AND YOURS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR FILTH AND MISERY THE WORLD OVER IF YOU: ALLOW, AND OR LOOK THE OTHER WAY FROM ACTS OF ABUSE, OR IF YOU ABUSE AND TERRORIZE CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES ANYWHERE IN THIS WORLD IN ANY WAY, YOU WILL BE HELD [SO VERY ACCOUNTABLE.]

    You, who abuse and terrorize children and their families, the elderly, the retarded and or any helpless or vulnerable person (the world over) are the worst type of human that there possibly can be. When you even hurt a small child, an elderly person and or [any] person for any reason be very afraid. However when you purposefully target children to yourself and other deviants, WATCH OUT! You most certainly will be held 100% Accountable; sooner or later.

    There is not one single person in this world who will get out of
    Accountability!

    When anyone “decides” to off an elderly or disabled person because they’re not worthy or too expensive, likewise, watch out.

    WHILE UNDER THE “CONE OF SILENCE”, MAXWELL SMART, OF ‘GET SMART’ BELIEVED HE WAS IN [COMPLETE CONTROL] AND IN [COMPLETE SECRECY]. I USE THIS EXAMPLE OF MAX’S ABSURD DELUSION TO ILLUSTRATES YOURS BECAUSE YOU FOLKS POSSESS THE SAME MENTALITY BUT, YOU’RE BEYOND ARROGANT.

    YOUR DEEDS WILL MOST DEFINITELY BE YOUR UNDOING UNLESS YOU TURN AND QUICKLY.

    It’s your vicious mentalities and insisting omission of truth that 99.999% of the media goes along with that keeps the world in filth, misery and rotted activities. But, as Maxwell Smart of ’Get Smart’ believed, when he demanded the “Cone of Silence” that he was safe, in control and in complete secrecy while under the “Cone of Silence”, so goes you and most governments etc; domestic and world-wide. You are [totally] deluded into thinking that what you do and allow to be done, is under “Top Secrecy”. But, not quite.

    The problem is, is that the Cone of Silence NEVER WORKED PROPERLY and Maxwell Smart [WAS NOT SMART]!

    THERE ARE MANY SINCERELY TRYING TO DO THE RIGHT THING; THERE ARE MANY EQUALLY STRIVING TO DO THE WRONG THING.

    IF YOU KEEP DOING WHAT YOUR DOING, THEN JUST WHO DO YOU THINK YOU’RE KIDDING?? THE WORLD; hmmm MAYBE, FOR JUST A LITTLE WHILE.

    ARROGANCE BREEDS SUCH UNINTELLIGENT THINKING.

    APPARENTLY YOU DON’T EVEN REALIZE THIS.

    WOW!

    YOU AND THOSE YOU ANSWER TO ARE JUST SO UNCOMPREHENDING , I WANTED TO PUT OUT A FAIR WARNING WHICH IS SO MUCH MORE THAN YOU AND THOSE LIKE YOU HAVE EVER GIVEN TO INNOCENT HELPLESS ONES.

    **POWER GRABBERS**:

    WHAT WILL YOU DO WHEN GOD TAKES AWAY ALL OF YOUR BILLION$ AND TRILLION$?

    AND HE WILL. SOME OF YOU NOW, SOME OF YOU LATER

    Here is the answer: [all] of you will then know that it is YOU and those like you that have been flim flammed by your own father; the diminutive “god” of ALL murderers, killers, liars, filth and horrors of this world. It is this unseen evil that rules in this world. It deceives, fools, deludes and swindles.

    You and all those like you listen to this evil one and gladly do it’s deeds. Some of you don’t realize that you are being led by this rotted force. But because of your arrogance, you’ve been deluded by this rotted force into thinking that it is you who is so intelligent. That it is you who is superior and smarter than all the rest because you became so fabulously wealthy; at the expense of all others. Yes, you have zero conscience which is why you do these things.

    This unseen evil is glad to be setting you up. Glad to see all of the greedy, perverted and murderous ones that think they are operating under secrecy; betrayed. You have betrayed everyone else, but sooner or later it will be your turn and you won’t know when it will hits. When [it] finally unveils it’s plans, the culmination of the afore mentioned, upon the “leaders” of this world’s governments/corporations/”religious” institutions, the set-up will be complete. But, then it will be too late for you.

    So, now is the time, seriously, to stop the lunatic filth, misery, famine and tortures that you do. Don’t you realize that what you are now doing to others, IS going to come back to you?! This will not be pleasant. Get that through your heads, please. When God finally brings you to your senses, you will be filled with a sadness and grief so overwhelming that you’ll wish you had never been born. Do you think you’ll be able to handle that? You won’t!

    The warnings most definitely apply to those who follow lock step with any government, corporation and or any “religious” denomination, sect etc. If you follow those instead of the One Who Made you, then you most certainly are also responsible for all of this horrific chaos. This is TRUTH!

    THE LAMB OF GOD IS SEARCHING, NOW TO SEE IF HE FINDS ANY LOVE, TRUTH AND MERCY AMONG THE PEOPLE OF THIS EARTH. THE [ONLY] SUPREME COURT, [HIS COURT] WILL BRING ALL OF US TO A [ONE ON one] WITH GOD, THE ALMIGHTY.

    PLEASE TRY TO UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING SIMPLE FACT? ALL OF US [RIGHT NOW] BEING TESTED AND TRIED EACH DAY. PLEASE LET THAT SINK IN. TURN YOURSELF AROUND, NOW, WHILE YOU CAN. PLEASE. IF NOT, YOU HAVE BEEN MOST SERIOUSLY WARNED.

    Matthew 12:41 John 5:39-40

  15. Terri says:

    It is long past time to begin praying.
    Someone decided to spray us from the sky with chemicals they know are harmful to humans and animals also. (Not contrails, Chemtrails).
    Strange things like pink slime in our foods.
    Banks taking every single pennie the government doesn’t have, yet.
    It is time to ask for help.
    It is time to begin praying, respectfully asking for help.
    (I feel like a insect, with an invisable exterminator on my tail).

  16. Ed stratford says:

    Thanks Barbara! Great article! You’ve inspired me to write to my local agriculture minister. I attached your article and forwarded it to local shire president, national news TV, and other interested parties. These bribe takers need to be brought to justice and put in jail. Lets get on their case and shed the light of truth on their shadowy activities. OzzieEd.

  17. Gary says:

    Barbara & John, it’s not the profit motive (make/lose money) that allows companies like Monsanto to do what they do but that they have well paid lobbyists “buying off” politicians which lead to laws limiting Monsanto’s liability. Shame on the politicians that take the payoff and the people who continue voting for Democrat and Republican politicians. How about the restoration of 1) free markets over government controlled markets 2) justice system over a legal system? Vote for anyone but a D or R.

  18. Barbara Talbert says:

    We will not even begin to advance as the human race until a paradigm shift takes place and we no longer care to profit from human misery. Monsanto could not exist without us. The guilty always try to make it seem the other way ’round which is why so many farmers bought into their schemes.
    I have felt very sad about India and all the farmer suicides and am happy to learn they will ban GMO’s. Maybe the cotton market will make a comeback but those poor farmers never will.

  19. momoftwingirls says:

    One more thing, everytime I go to my local farmers market, I ask if they use GMO seeds and I read all labels on store shelfed ‘foods ‘ for MSG and aspartame poisioning.

  20. Abe says:

    I see were getting stuck with the bill to clean up Vietnam now. I wonder just how many lives were destroyed by Monsanto? I see India is ready to ban GMO’s now.

  21. John Harrison says:

    Barbra, You are talking to the same people that conduct experiments on anyone. They dump nuke waste into the lakes and streams. They drop nukes in defenseless people. They will take down and airliner to get one person. They Will start wars that kill millions. They bombed and leveled German cities. Do they care how many women and children they killed? They drop nukes on Japan that wanted to surrender. They will contaminate land and know the toxins leech into the soil. I would advise nobody should live near any chemcial plants. I would not live closer than 50 miles to a nuke plant.

    No these people don’t care about all the people and animals that suffer, because of their negligence. I doubt they take time off sailing on their yachts, jet setting and time in casinos fine dining to even take the time to read what the poor people write. Only if they get death threats would it get back to them and then the law would quickly take care of them.

    They would only care if their company loses money. They would and are destroying this planet by dumping nuclear waste into the ocean. Where I live if your bilge pumps water out of your boat and it so much as leaves a sheen on the water they fine you heavily.
