Thanks for posting. How many of these kinds of stories are out there? It's totally depressing.
Wow. Wrong in so many ways. How come it's always the big crooks that get away with stuff like this?
A political donation is basically a get out of jail free pass. I don't understand how if someone cashes
a bad check they can do time in jail but these crooks stealing billions of dollars aren't even pursued.
$230,000 for seeds! That is the real tragedy here. You know that those farmers can't retain a portion of their seeds for replanting the next year? The seeds themselves are protected by patents and one major producer has sued farmers and won for planting their own seeds.
Ira - I know! Ridiculous! To say that you 'own' the rights to a seed still boggles my mind, good ole' Monsanto....gotta love GMO seeds.
I saw that special on this subject a year or so ago and had no idea Monsanto (I think that was the company?) basically throttles the seed industry and effectively makes it impossible for growers not using their genetically developed seed to compete. You know, regardless of which side of the political isle you stand, I think we'd all agree that assuring our food sources largely remains domestically produced is preferred to relying on other countries for what's in our pantries. I don't knock companies like Monsanto from developing new ways to increase yields, but when they effectively ruin independents with punitive dealings, that bullshit.
This isn't a rant against BO. Just shows what happens when corporations own our government.

The real question is why. Why do you think they are allowing this?
Go read Orwell, Koestler or Sozhesnitsyn. think you might get a clue why this is happening.
History has a tendency of repeating repeating itself.
Yep. Absolutely disgusting.
