|5/3/2013 - Organic farmers have yet another environmental hazard to contend with, this time compliments of the U.S. government in the form of chemtrails.

|5/2/2013 - It would have been so simple. Flood Afghanistan with Monsanto GMOs. Truckloads of seeds. Tanks full of Roundup herbicide. Result? Nutritionally deficient food crops, chronic disease, poisoning with Roundup. Perfect.

|4/30/2013 - And when are anti-GMO activist groups going to stop saying they're "shocked and disappointed" by the president?

Don't you get it? Obama has never been on your side. He never deserved your trust.
|4/26/2013 - Seattle natural grocer PCC Natural Markets is ready to stand up against Monsanto and other genetically modified organism (GMO) food producers. PCC has joined the fight to force food companies to label products that include genetically modified organisms, a practice found in much of Europe and in Australia,...|
|4/24/2013 - The world's most evil corporation, Monsanto, has taken a new interest in conventional food crops, which the company is currently trying to seize ownership of in Europe by exploiting a little-known loophole in European patent law.

|4/23/2013 1:00:49 PM - With President Obama's recent signing of the Monsanto Protection Act, food safety advocates are up in arms.

Isn't that wonderful?...|
|3/29/2013 - The internet has erupted into a fury over Obama's signing of the so-called "Monsanto Protection Act," a rider to a federal appropriations bill that hands Monsanto the power to nullify the decisions of federal courts. If the courts decide that a genetically engineered crop is dangerous to the public...|
|3/28/2013 - Collectivists have a favorite target. Big bad corporations. This is a complete scam. Why did Goldman Sachs turn out to be the biggest funder of Obama's 2008 election bid? Why weren't the corporate banksters who demanded and received those enormous bailouts, under both Bush and Obama, prosecuted for...|
|3/28/2013 - President Barack Obama campaigned on promises to end secret prisons, decriminalize marijuana, balance the budget, honor the Second Amendment and make health care affordable.

|3/4/2013 - The press and public have fixated on the sticky legal details of the case, and the classic David vs. Goliath nature of the fight. But win or lose, Mr. Bowman's predicament is part of a much bigger problem.

|2/22/2013 - So, if you're a farmer and your yields are consistently lower each year, it's your fault, right?

|1/23/2013 - The approval process in many countries for genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and their chemical-based treatment technologies is largely a secretive affair, as the public is typically not made privy to the data used in the decision making process, nor the rationale behind officials' ultimate decision...|

|1/17/2013 - Labeling GMO foods is a good idea. But on the way to getting that accomplished, what will our food supply and topsoil be like?

|12/30/2012 6:04:33 PM - By now, most of us are aware of the GMO problem and the political corruption akin to it.

|12/5/2012 7:43:22 PM - For several years now, Hawaii has been having hearings regarding the implementation of labeling GMOs. We have had Neighborhood Board meetings, Legislative hearings, and, of late, City Council hearings. Anything involving government officiality has always been lip service.
