This is the standard game that we continually see being played over and over, namely, corrupt big business interests (being Monsanto here) who try to increase their market share of their crappy unhealthy products forcefully, by shutting down their competition's good products via legislation emanating from corrrupt bought politicians.
Much better post - though you could have been a bit more diplomatic in the subject line.
Awesome (re)incarnate is right about incrementalism. And you are right about the powers of darkness not stopping due to any single defeats (look at how they have relentlessly schemed to overturn and circumvent DSHEA). Even so, no reason to roll over - and until the complete rise of the Diebold machines no matter how controlled our puppet leaders are they still fear voters turning against them in large numbers.
Now, about that testimonial, don't be a tease - let's have it!
This is an excellent post. It is time to prepare, although I'm a bit confused. Doesn't this conflict with your earlier post? In reference to your first post, yes, the sky is indeed falling in so many ways and that is why we must become prepared before it is too late. Get those heirloom seeds now, learn, plant, and be prepared. Our survival and health are at stake.
Although I agree with you to some extent that it may be impossible to stop "the powers that be", it is important that the public be heard. I am well aware that we are witnessing what has been long in planning as to not only the future of our country, but the future of the world. However, in my opinion, not enough of us are rising up. One thing our representatives want, is to be re-elected. If enough of us let them know that we will put them out of office should they not truly represent us, it may be different. Fear is a wonderful catalyst. But we need a massive outcry. There are far too many complascent Americans that do not believe that these foods are harmful, don't care, and some don't even have a clue. It is up to us to inform them of the dangers, the greatest of which is the upcoming loss of our freedoms. This is what it is all about and controlling our food supply is just one avenue. It is a huge undertaking, as the American people have been "asleep" for so long, that the "other side" has gained foothold. Sadly, this is what our forefathers fought for and tried to prevent when forming the Constitution. The grief they must feel! We have silently shrugged our shoulders as these bills have been passed, while talking amongst ourselves about the injustice of it all. It is time to be heard, and do all we can to put a stop to this, because frankly, time is running out, rather quickly. Life as we have known it since we were children is about to drastically change. At the very least, let us not go down without a fight. Without saying, "I did my very best." All the while preparing for survival against what may at this point very well be the inevitable.
The Sky is indeed falling. Let us wake up, act, and prepare.
Will sure be glad when my pooter is fixed. So will DQ.
Now....... when I press "post" who will it be? Right now it says "Luella" OK Gremlins....... away!
