It's Illegal to Grow Your Own Food...
Consider this: Genetically Modified Foods. Patenting certain genes in animals. Terminator Seeds that cannot reproduce. Think about it. Why would a company make a seed that will not reproduce? Control, control of the food supply, control of the prices. Control over what you can or cannot grow and what you eat.
There has been a file for a patent put on a pig!
Then you factor in the pressure these companies and our government have been putting on European countries and third world countries to accept this "new food supply."
Factor in all the rules and regulations. Red Tape and cerrtifications. Talk of needing RFID. The family farm will cease to exist, they will not be able to afford to stay in business.
Look at all these diseases, the bird flu, mad cow(caused by what they feed the animal). Pretty soon we will be told it's in our own best interest that we no longer have animals (our own safety). It will become a health risk to farm our own food.
Huge corporations will be responsible for our food consumption. And if you try to fight the system...well just ask Percy how that turns out.
Talk about having ultimate control, when you are in control of the food chain!
I wish more people would take an interest in what our local farmers have been trying to tell us before it's too late. I wish our politicians would tell us why they help push this on other countries.
Another telling piece is this:
Monopoly challenge: With control of almost 60% of the US cotton seed market after the buyout, Monsanto anticipates anti-trust scrutiny in the US, and the company's president says it will divest its US cotton seed company Stoneville, which controls about 14% of the US market. "If the EU is serious about helping Africa's cotton farmers and improving Africa's cotton export earnings, it can begin by rejecting the Monsanto/D&PL merger in Brussels as an attack on anti-competition policy," said Pat Mooney of ETC Group. "The merger of these two US companies will make the removal of cotton subsidies much more difficult and will keep cotton and cotton clothing prices unnaturally high for European consumers. A barrier thrown up in Brussels will even be seen inside the Beltway in Washington, DC. The boll is in the EU's court!" said Mooney.
They are even worried about being considered a monopoly!
Hope you enjoy your "real food" while you still can OR we could all ask our politicians to address this situation before it gets out of hand. It's our choice and we have no-one to blame but ourselves if we ignore it.
I'd rather this title remain fiction than become fact.
