NaturalNews.com ^ | 5 Jan 2011 | Mike Adams "The Health Ranger"

...

The "winner" of this survey will be recognized with an award announcement here on NaturalNews, along with a story exploring why that corporation is viewed as being so evil by people in the natural health community.

(Excerpt) Read more at naturalnews.com ...


TOPICS:
KEYWORDS: accountability; citizen; dotherightthing; responsibility
If the Fed is the "winner" here (or maybe one of Soros' sponsored entities), it may encourage some folks to take a second look at other evil forces in our society.

Monsanto are "winning". I don't even know who they are...

I voted "other" and said that they were all nuts.

Nothing on that list is as corrupt and dangerous to your health as the Federal gov’t and all its alphabet flunky’s, EPA, DEA, BATF, HLS and all the rest. And they don’t steal your money via taxes..

I was thinking more along the lines of: Poll to Freep: The most stupid poll of the year? Definitely I'll vote for this one.

Here is the list:

Which corporation do you think deserves the “Most Evil Corporation of the Year” award?
Pfizer

Monsanto

Nestle

Halliburton

Merck

McDonald’s

Federal Reserve

British Petroleum

Wal-Mart

Other


That’s the problem with such polls, it’s a preselected list.

The Federal Reserve is NOT “evil”, and they don’t give you the choice of the “Federal Government”.

Mr. R.E. McMaster, the publisher of a financial newsletter called “THE REAPER,” was able to determine who the Fed’s principal owners were through his Swiss and Saudi Arabian contacts. According to McMaster, the top eight stockholders are Rothschild Banks of London and Berlin; Lazard Brothers Banks of Paris; Israel Moses Self Banks of Italy; Warburg of Hamburg and Amsterdam; Lehman Brothers Bank of New York; Kuhn, Loeb Bank of New York; Chase Manhattan Bank of New York; and Goldman, Sachs Bank of New York. These interests own the Federal Reserve System through approximately three hundred stockholders, all whom are known to each other and are sometimes related to one another.

"That’s the problem with such polls, it’s a preselected list."

A complete list is untenable; they elevated themselves well above others by providing a fill in the blank "other" selection.

"The Federal Reserve is NOT “evil”, and they don’t give you the choice of the “Federal Government”."

I beg to disagree. An organization established with the intent to impose fiat money on a country that had a stable monetary standard is an evil creation. Through fiat currency, they steal our works' and products' value through inflation.

The Founders knew this and tried to preclude it from happening.

Monsanto....guess THEY are “evil” because they produce products for those “evil” farmers that produce food.
The Greenies must be voting against Ag Chemicals, Fertilizer, and especially Roundup, since it kills weeds, hence it must be destroying the planet.

Natural News is an outstanding website...don’t agree with some material, but it is chock-full of excellent advice and health tips.

I would have expected everyone on FR to know who and what they are. Guess not.

For what it is worth, I have read that site for years. Lots of conservatives believe in nature's medicines, so I do hope this thread doesn't devolve into the narrow minded "stupid liberals" mantra.

It is almost a knee jerk reaction for pubbies to get their panties in a wad when anyone says something bad about a corporation. Well you know what, some of them do suck, and Monsanto is one of them.

Couldn't agree more. There are some areas in which left and right cross; gardening and 'alternative' care being two of them...it 'kills' me to read Mother Earth magazine, but there is just too much good gardening and farming info in there to turn my back on it just because I don't care for the name of the publication. :-)

I love that magazine!!! Read it cover to cover every time. GRIT magazine, too.

I don't see taking care of my piece of ground as a political stance. I personally think that most of what is wrong with this country could be fixed if everyone had their hands in the dirt everyday, providing for themselves.

Well I'm not an american, (amazingly not all Freepers are), so its probably no surprise I dont know about monsanto.

I have no great love for any meagacorporation, but the word "evil" is bandied around far too much.

I agree that the word is used too much. However, if someone is trampling other human beings just to turn a buck, I don't know what to call that if not evil.

And also true, if the food safety bill doesn't affect you there is no real reason you would ever have knowledge of Monsanto.

Try "sinful". Very few people or organisations are actually actively evil. Wrong perhaps, or misguided. Maybe even downright bad. But not evil. If you call someone evil you risk making them a kind of whipping boy and thereby excusing your own shortcomings. The Human problem is not that some of us are evil, it is that all of us are not quite good enough.

And also true, if the food safety bill doesn't affect you there is no real reason you would ever have knowledge of Monsanto.

Ah...one of those organisations that like to keep a low profile eh? They are unknown to the masses, but secretly pull all the strings?

Excellent statement.

Monsanto is a massive multinational corporation. You undoubtedly have something in your posession right now that they made.

Michael Crighton's last book, Next , could very easily be about this creepy company.
