(NaturalNews) Monsanto’s business model is falling apart right in front of their own face, because the biotech firm blatantly disrespects the property rights of farmers, contaminating their fields with unauthorized genetically modified seeds.
These unapproved GMO seeds inevitably cross-contaminate farmers’ fields, effectively destroying their yields. That’s exactly what happened in Oregon last year when some unauthorized “zombie wheat” from the Monsanto Company went from the lab and intermixed with a farmer’s natural wheat.
The debacle disrupted wheat exports as Japan and South Korea blocked shipments. A contingency of farmers have joined forces and sued Monsanto.
Hundreds of students walked out of classrooms in suburban Denver on Wednesday in the largest protest yet of a conservative-led school board proposal to focus U.S. history lessons on topics that promote citizenship, patriotism and respect for authority — a show of civil disobedience that the new criteria would aim to downplay.
The student protest in Jefferson County, involving six high schools in the state’s second-largest school district, follows a sick-out by teachers that shut down two high schools in the politically and economically diverse area, which has become a key political battleground.
Student participants said their action was organized by word of mouth and social media. Many waved U.S. flags and carried signs with messages such as “There is nothing more patriotic than protest.”
“It was kind of just spur of the moment,” Ashlyn Maher, a Chatfield senior who helped organize Wednesday’s protest, told the Denver Post. “I heard one teacher was so moved by people leaving that she started to cry.”
Ron Finley plants vegetable gardens in South Central LA — in abandoned lots, traffic medians, along the curbs. Why? For fun, for defiance, for beauty and to offer some alternative to fast food in a community where “the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys.”
Today is one of those days where I intend to achieve my goal, as there are simply too many important topics to be broached. Frankly, it is awe-inspiring to watch the daily machinations of global money printing, market manipulation, and propaganda destroying the lives of countless billions.
Each successive manoeuver materially adds to the cumulative misery we anticipate in the coming decade – such as today’s Bank of England [Rothschild] decision to maintain its 0.50% interest rate for the sixth straight year, and its £375 billion QE program.
Over the last half decade, perhaps a bit longer, the Government, through Bull$#it social programs, has paid people not to work. On top of this, colleges are disgorging individuals unprepared to take jobs in today’s markets. While they’re quite versed in ‘Studies’ hoopla, they cannot place any of that garbage into the real world. There are grads with the skills; H-1B visa immigrants however, will work for less money. That cuts the American citizen chances of employment.
The world’s 85 richest individuals possess as much wealth as the 3.5 billion souls who compose the poorer half of the world’s population, or so it was announced in a report by Oxfam International. The assertion sounds implausible to me. I think the 85 richest individuals, who together are worth many hundreds of billions of dollars, must have far more wealth than the poorest half of our global population.
June 1, 2011 – The number of people depending on the government is increasing at a dramatic rate. More than 44.5 million Americans, nearly 21 million households, are now receiving food stamps. This is an increase of 11% from one year ago and a 61% increase from just four years ago.
Here is just another example of a government program that has grown out of control. When established in 1964, the Food Stamp Act appropriated $75 million to 350,000 individuals in 40 counties and three cities. At the time, the Agriculture Department estimated that participation in the program would eventually reach 4 million, at a cost of $360 million annually. By 2010, it reached over 40 million Americans costing $68 billion in one year.
