I am the kind of person who always has to know why things are the way they are so my interests range from genetics and biology to politics and what makes people tick.
For fun I play online mmorpgs, read, listen to a music, dance when I get the chance and landscape my rather large block.
Work is writing. When a story I am working on is going well I'm on cloud nine. On bad days I go out and dig big holes...

Monsanto controlling the food chain reads like a movie script doesn’t it? One company slowly and insidiously taking control of what the masses put in their mouths, to what end? Apart from money of course.
Surely they must know that uniformity of seed is a bad thing but they are pushing on regardless. If it was a movie we would all see the inevitable coming of the end and know that something needs to be done now to change their course.

You’ve put your finger right on it Metan. Monsanto either doesn’t know [??] or doesn’t care so long as the money keeps rolling in. I’ve seen Monsanto scientists spruiking GMOs and I couldn’t work out whether they were truly convinced their science was infallible, or too scared of losing their cushy jobs to speak out.
Think about the Tobacco Industry. None of /their/ scientists spoke out either but they must have known.
Companies this big are no longer part of Capitalism because they have killed off the competition that is meant to balance the market out. They are states. 😦

Just read that article Metan. I had no idea bread wheat had that peptide!?! I’m familiar with Durum wheat from pasta but basically thought all wheat was the same. 😦

I have just Facebooked the link both as a status update and as a message to my friends. I have Twitter but don’t use it. I will post about it also. I see you have linked up with Celi 🙂

I can’t understand how the US Senate could pass the Monsanto protection act or why it would want to. It’s not in the interest of the people.
In South America Monsanto have reverted to dirty tricks like spraying non Monsanto crops with Round-Up which has penetrated ground water and made people ill. They must be help responsible for their acts. I hope they don’t yet own the UK or Australian Governments and can’t spoil the livelihood of farmers or the health of more people world wide.
Join in the actions that call for them to be brought to book fir their actions.

Twitter is very interesting that way — some trivial things become huge stories on Twitter, but there is also a lot of tweeting about important things. You’ll find both and I kind of like the mix.

Monsanto are dirty players, led my filthy individuals, however I think it would be wise to also help bolster and support the people who are collecting and selling those heirloom seeds. And Never EVER buy any product that has been tarnished with the Monsanto brush. This is what i am trying to do anyway, i think as a collective we are very strong! .. morning .. celi

I’m glad you saw this. I just FB messaged you the link. I referred AC Flory to the Farmy yesterday because it is an example of what to do and how to live which will beat Monsanto and their money hungry conscience-ess ilk.
