I think I vomited in my mouth when I read: "we're working together" Oh Yes...We...Umm...who is we...certainly not me...and certainly NOT many of the comments. Shall We take a look:

When you see that many likes compared to comments...you know you have to read the comments
"Isn't this the corporation that puts small farmers out of business and genetically modifies everyone and everything." (61 likes) ... Why yes, yes it is...but hey...Monsanto owns the seed and the seed of that seed...so Business as usual.
"So Monsanto!..What work are you doing to help all of those farmers in India and their families that are killing themselves because of you?!?" (20 likes) ...Nothing...they don't care...its all about the bottom line.
"Sad and pathetic! That's about all you can say! Monsanto's main business and largest profit center is suing farmers for using patented seeds produced from last years crops. They've destroyed more farms than they've ever helped and that's the truth." (31 likes)
"Who do you think you are kidding?" (41 likes)
On and On and On it goes.
This is a good thing. It shows that people are waking up and know that Monsanto is all about money and owning the food supply.
You may be like me and ask: Well Why are farmers buying Monsanto seed. So I googled it...because that is what we do now. First thread: Monsanto.com Newsroom. Small blip:
"When farmers purchase a patented seed variety, they sign an agreement that they will NOT save and replant seeds produced from the seed they buy from us." >... Yikes that didn't help...made me wonder even more.
The next article is a bit more helpful: Do Farmer's Have Choices? "There seems to be a consensus going around that farmers have no choice when it comes to the seed they choose to plant. Or if they do have a choice, large corporations like Monsanto force it upon them. And if anybody tries to voice their opinion and let the farmer's themselves speak upon their choices, the individual suddenly becomes a pawn for Monsanto."
Bottom line: Monsanto owns the seed and the seed of the seed. This is not sustainable. Monsanto is also bypassing "free-trade" by suing states that want to label genetically modified foods. If their product was so good, they would label it...the government says WE THE PEOPLE are too stupid to have it labeled. Translation: People are too stupid to understand the science behind genetically modified foods, if we label them, no one will buy it. Um........Um...Um..
Correct me if I am wrong...WE THE PEOPLE...want it labeled...but if "we" are too stupid for that: Doesn't it mean we were too stupid to elect YOU...thus you are too stupid to lead...thus your opinion is invalid? Hmmm....Makes you wonder...Makes you wonder..
What do you think about Genetically Modified Food? And what do you think about anyone owning not only the seed, but the seeds offspring?
