Let's start with Monsanto. Not so long ago, the residents of Maui made their will apparent and voted against GMOs in their food supply. They didn't vote for labeling GMOs; they voted against their very presence. Monsanto performed an end-run around the wishes of the people of Maui.
From Jon Rappoport's latest piece:
“Case 1:14-cv-00582-SOM-BMK Document 55 Filed 04/15/15: ORDER DENYING MOTION TO DISMISS ‘MIRROR-IMAGE’ CLAIMS ON RIPENESS GROUNDS AND CONTINUING HEARING ON MERITS OF THAT MOTION; ORDER ADOPTING AMENDED FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATION AND DENYING MOTION TO REMAND [the Atay Action to state court].”
V. CONCLUSION.Here's a link to Jon's Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/jonrappoport/status/590871654714052611/photo/1
The court adopts the Amended F&R and denies the Motion to Remand the Atay Action to state court, ECF No. 15.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: Honolulu, Hawaii, April 15, 2015.

GMOs were purported to be the answer to world hunger. I guess we shouldn't count the over 300,000 Indian farmers who committed suicide because they were cajoled into switching to GMO crops that UTTERLY FAILED.
Many countries have actually burned GMO crops in order to stop the spread of their genes. I and many others have written about this.
The 'equivalence' claims are an obfuscation of facts. Think about the constant back-and-forth between the lobbyists and the legal department in regards to this end. How long did it take before one of these idiots came up with 'equivalence".
What they don't want you to ponder is that, using the same train of thought, a plastic piece of fruit is 'equivalent' to a real piece of fruit.
I would go so far as to say that the GMO has more 'equivalence' to the plastic replica than to real crops.
I've gone too far, right? Let me remind you that it is a fact that GMO crops do not have the same levels of nutrition contained in conventional/organic crops.
Monsanto and other biotechs claim that the nay-sayers are 'anti-science'; that's a huge load of bupkis. Shooting incompatible genes into an organism and thinking that invisible changes aren't taking place is ANTI-SCIENCE.
Some items of note from GMWatch:
If Neil Young can get back to his former glory, I'll be going to a concert for the first time in many years.
We had so much promise in 2008, only for the exact opposite to happen. You can thank the revolving door between our government and lobbyists for that.
McDonald's market share is dropping like the cast of Hollywood Hillbillies going over Niagara Falls in barrels - hot and heavy.
This is funny - I've not heard of this: "their food is known as McColonics"
Jon also does a great piece on the idiocy of forcing vaccinations upon everyone. I won't repost his piece, but I'll bolster the argument with a simple analogy:
You live without locking your doors.
Your neighbor locks their doors.
Your neighbor insists that by you not locking your doors, he will get robbed.
Make sense to you?
Have a good day, dear readers.
