Monsanto "Friends" Agenda 21
chrissstreetandcompany.com ^ | May 10, 2013 | Chriss W. Street

Posted on 05/10/2013 5:53:25 AM PDT by Texas Eagle

The beauty of UN Agenda 21 is that Big Government collects lots more taxes that they can spend on their Big Business friends. That is why it is so instructive to watch Monsanto, the agricultural chemical behemoth that has long been a great partner with rural farmers, turn on its base and join the World Business Council for Sustainable Development. Monsanto is now aligned with 200 major banks, oil companies, and other powerful corporate players committed to implementing the United Nations Marxist scheme to expropriate rural land and eliminate the suburbs by moving these unwashed masses to the cities where their independent voting can be cancelled out.

WOW!

I thought this communist effort was focused overseas......

They are trying to BUY UP RURAL AMERICA, to force American populations to the cities, where they may be better controlled and overwhelmed by LIBERAL VOTERS.

I reject the global sustainability myth out of hand. What, are we going to reject 200 plus years of history that we were sustainable, but now suddenly when we are far more aware of resources, and being frugal with them, we are unsustainable?

Agenda 21 is a plan, a very bad plan for keeping low information voters right where they are, being sustained by government, until they become useful idiots, at which point they are no longer sustainable, along with the elderly, the too sick to spend our rationed resources on, and anyone not on board with the global society.

I know, it can’t happen here, but in reality, we are way too close already.

Guess they have a short memory who feeds them, clothes them, shelters them, cares for their health, in other words, left bad corporations, GOOD!

Left bad, corporations good but not always.
Monopolies bad, corporations in league with communists bad, laws written to benefit specific corporations bad.

By returnting monopolistic government back to it’s Constitutionally mandated box, the other problems would be solved.

Monsanto is one of the most evil corporations on planet Earth, and their covert, behind-the-scenes activites over the last few years have allowed them to gain almost complete control of the world’s food supply. Very, VERY dangerous. And very in bed with Obama.

Buy seeds. The commies are starting to starve Europeans by making home gardening illegal. After them they will come after us.

AGENDA: Grinding America Down

http://vimeo.com/63749370

There’s a minute and a half promo at the start, but this is a long video you want to send to everyone who isn’t yet convinced. This is the history of the roadmap that was created by the Fabians, the Marxists, the progressives, et al toward the destruction of America. It is on track, and has been successful beyond expectation! Can I say it plainer? Pass it around, if you wish. God bless.

One trick to use with older seeds is to soak them in hydrogen peroxide over night before planting them.

Interesting point regarding seeds. I get four or five seed catalogs each spring, and it is getting more difficult to find normal seeds that is non-hybrid. You have to carefully look to find them, which is why heritage/heirloom seed companies are now serving far more poeple than they used to.

Yes I do. Why don’t you read about HR 933? Educate yourself.

Monsanto’s GMO seeds can destroy non-hybrid seeds, harm the environment, and be bad for human health. Yet their massive lobby has ensured their protection from the gov. Read up on it.

Force you out of your suburban home and into an Obamaville urban high-rise flat in order to plant genetically modified soybeans on your former property? Sounds like Alex Jones Meets Nicolae Ceausescu.

Wow, instead of informing fellow yuppies on this thread about this secret monopoly, you should tip off companies like Baer Crop Science, or Dow or DuPont or Syngenta; they all naively think that they compete with Monsanto.

I would “read up on it” but I’m kinda busy this time of year planting crops. All of this year’s seed corn, by the way, is subject to a Baer, not Monsanto, patent.

Spelling was never my forte.

Bayer's "Liberty Link" trait imparts a herbicide resistance similar in result to the "Round Up Ready" trait patented by Monsanto, but by alternating between the two, weed resistance is avoided.

Surroundedbyblue is correct. Mr. L is wrong.

Monsanto tries to buy up seeds that can reproduce normally (ie farmers can save some of the seeds form this year’s crop to plant the next) so as to force farmers all over the world to buy only Monasanto seeds. The genetically modify all kinds of crop seeds with no oversight as to safety, there are numerous articles detailing the many dangers of genetically modified plants.

And then there’s their chemical side.

Just because a corporation is huge and makes tons of money doesn’t mean it does good in the world. Maybe you find it hard to believe, but this is a fact. Maybe you work for Monsanto.

The left doesn’t hate huge corporations, be serious. It wants a piece of the pie and to direct the coporations to further the leftist agenda. Shessh, everyone knows that. It’s a sort of fascism, and we got it here full blast.

Obastard recenlty signed some bill that had gigantic protection for Monsanto in it. Wish I could remember more about it, maybe someone else does. This idea that leftists hate big corporations is rediculous. They love them as long as they can control them/have leftists influencing or running them. Gov makes laws to favor them, and the corps give $ to the politicians, and meanwhile we the people are doubly shafted.

I'm sorry little fella, but you're wholly misinformed.

Monsanto doesn't "buy up" seeds; they, by contract, prohibit the retention of soybeans for replanting. That's how all seed patent holders protect the value of their patents.

Monsanto's patents on the glyphosate resistant traits expire next year anyway, so buying up seeds to avoid re-planting wouldn't be a terribly clever tactic anyway, now would it?

LJ - you’re exactly right. Monsanto is slowly but surely creating seeds that are subject to patent laws and which will kill off non-Monsanto, non-GMO seeds forcing farmers to purchase only Monsanto’s Frankenseeds.

That’s just one aspect of it. The safety is another concern. People who aren’t worried about this or don’t see a problem here are sadly mistaken.

Monsanto seeds don't kill off other seeds. Monsanto developed a soy bean seed which was so qualitatively superior to anything else on the market that farmers universally planted it to the exclusion of older, less vigorous varieties.

Monsanto charged a substantial premium for their patented seed and made a lot of money off of it. But the last "Round Up Ready" soybean patent expires next year and the price of the same seed will drop dramatically.

In the meanwhile, other companies have spent a bundle of money developing their own proprietary seed traits. That's how a market economy is supposed to work.

I know it can’t happen here.

is really different when it is,

I know, it can’t happen here.

At any rate it is a tongue stuck firmly in cheek.

IOW I’ve heard it a thousand times, it can’t happen here, and if you face reality, it already has happened.

If anyone wants to be on or off the Agenda 21 ping list, please notify me by Freepmail. It is a relatively low volume list in which we have been exploring the UN Agenda21 and related topics. We have collected our studies with threads, links, and discussions on the Agenda 21 thread which can be found here:

NEW ACTION THREAD:

Post 128 of the Action Thread is a summary of the history of Agenda 21, “what they are doing”, “what to do about it” and a good bibliography for further reading.
