And they are also really devoid of alternatives–I have yet to see any of the critics supply alternatives that work for farmers.

    • Monsanto had 4 losing quarters. Only reason the largest fund management companies would toss them.

  2. Why does your government allow you to be poisoned? Why don’t you do something it’s time for a new system of government. One ran by the people for the people. One that will do as its told. Open the financial record books and do what’s right. Americans have the right bear arms in order to keep their government from doing this exact thing. The problem is that the government decided what they learn, and Unfortunately they don’t teach very much more than support your troops and we are the best no matter what.
