The cows finally came home

I finally got my cows out to the farm!!! They have been at my mother's farm for about 2 months because I have had no way to get them down to our farm myself and she has been busy cutting tobacco. Today she came and dropped them off for me.

Monsanto and the Evil Seed

This company just doesn't stop. The CEO of Monsanto must be Satan himself. I can think of no other person so completely evil that they would try to take over the food supply of the world and deny someone the right to provide for his family. I thought they were evil before this because of their patents on grains (which seed can spread miles and farmers can be sued for infringement if it is on their land) but this is just pure evil.

Ok so after that introduction/rant, which most of you have no clue what I am talking about (watch this to catch up, Monsanto has introduced two bills, in particular, into the house this past February that are designed specifically to kill out their competition, the small farmer. This was done through Rosa Delauro who introduced HR 875. Ms. Delaura is married to Stanley Greenberg, who is a political consultant for Monsanto. HR 814 is simply put NAIS enforced under federal law instead of under the FDA. here is an article explaining how "the company that should not be named" is connected

These bills go under the guise of the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009, however it really does nothing to prevent disease but only stop diseased meat from spreading once a problem has been identified. There is nothing in this bill to stop the unsanitary condition that these animals are kept in or processed in but caters directly to the purpose of driving out small competition with restrictions that only large industries can meet. moreover it creates yet another branch of government that answers to no higher authority. We can see how well that works with the IRS, FBI, and FDA.

These bills have not been brought before the house for a vote and I pray they never do. You can use the links below to keep an eye on the status of these bills and there are several petitions you can sign against these bills.

Monsanto Revolving Doors- List of Monsanto employees that held office in the US Government just long enough to pass a bill that benefited Monsanto and then resumed work with a large pay increase from Monsanto.

Next to pass through the revolving door



Couldn't have said it better myself
