    Does she really expect non-brain washed people to believe this? :confused:

    Bought some Round Up yesterday to use on the weeds that are popping through my fence. I noticed the Monsanto label and felt a little happy tingle over what this type of person would think of my purchase.
    Are your other reasons things like, "I don't want Europeans to take advantage of safe farming technology that increases crop yield and lowers food prices?"

    Nowhere in her article does she ever take ownership for her own problems.

    It's everyone else's fault.

    Fuck off.

    Comcast was named the worst country in america:
    http://consumerist.com/2014/04/08/congratulations-to-comcast-your-2014-worst-company-in-america/
    I get that. Totally see how comcast could win...

    But what I don't get is how they just barely beat Monsanto? Monsanto got some bad PR from suing farmers who reuse seeds or have their crops fertilized by the Monsanto crops their neighbors used...but that was a couple of years ago. That's pretty shitty, but I am not aware of anyting recent that would make them the worst company in the eyes of average folk. In fact, they seem like a pretty decent company all around. Agree or disagree with the GMO thing (which is only a fraction of their business, and they also sell non-GMO seeds), they don't seem to be particularly exploitative or big price gougers...

    Like I said most benefits will be taken by GMO companies. How many of them are there 5,7? Probably most american so they are pure evil. It could lead to some sort of monopoly or control of our food market. Let's see how Americans will benefit from that and then let's decide.

    This makes sense, because the more healthy a food is, the more likely you are to be allergic to it. Nobody is allergic to commercial preservatives and additives.

    Comcast customers have to deal directly with Comcast, in discrete, highly frustrating transactions. Our relationship with Monsanto is much less direct.

    I want to exercise, but it will put me into anaphylactic shock and literally kill me.
