Canada On The Verge Of Approving Enviropigs -creating human/animal hybrid creatures

3 Comments

And all the churches remain silent as these abominations continue…….
This is a human/pig ready to go into production. The truth is human/pig hybrid creatures will soon be legally grown inside of the United States.
 Mysteries of the World – The Canadian government is on the verge of approving the introduction of extremely bizarre genetically modified pigs into the Canadian food supply.  These new mouse/pig hybrids have been dubbed “enviropigs” and are being touted as being much better for the environment.  This new “breed” of Yorkshire pigs was created by scientists in Ontario at the University of Guelph, who spliced in genes from mice to decrease the amount of phosphorus produced in the pigs’ excrement.  So soon millions of Canadians will be eating meat from mouse/pig hybrid creatures and most of them will not even realize it.  It is expected that approval for this new “brand” of pigs will be sought in the United States as well.  But this is hardly the first time that scientists have mixed two kinds of animals together in an attempt to create creatures that will be beneficial for humanity.   

The truth is that scientists around the world are now creating bizarre hybrid “animals” on a regular basis.  Over the past couple of decades the field of genetic modification has made extraordinary advances, and now researchers and scientists seem very eager to exploit these new technologies.

So what kind of weird, mysterious creatures have scientists been creating? 

Well, what would you think of a cat that glows in the dark? More

Who’s protecting farmers and consumers from GE contamination? Not USDA

Leave a comment

Live link:  Center for Food Safety

 

USDA has released for public comment its draft environmental impact statement (EIS) on Monsanto’s genetically engineered, Roudup Ready alfalfa, and unfortunately, USDA has not done its job. USDA has ignored the real-life concerns of non-GE alfalfa farmers, dairies, exporters, retailers and consumers. Despite public outcry, USDA’s determination is to once again approve GE alfalfa without any limitations or protections for consumers, the environment, or farmers’ right to sow the crop of their choice without fear of contamination and rejection of their products. Incredibly, USDA claims that consumers don’t care if organic and conventional farmers’ crops are contaminated!

In 2006, the Center for Food Safety (CFS) sued the Department of Agriculture (USDA) on behalf of farmers and others for its illegal approval of Monsanto’s Roundup Ready alfalfa and won, banning GE alfalfa until the USDA fully analyzed its impacts on the environment, farmers, and the public. However, the resulting EIS is woefully inadequate, leaving farmers and consumers unprotected while Monsanto goes on with business as usual.

This is the first time the USDA has done this type of analysis for any GE crop, so the final decision will have broad implications for all GE crops and for the future of organic agriculture—that is why it’s so important that USDA hear from YOU. USDA is only accepting comments on this EIS through March 3, 2010, so please take action today!

Tell USDA that protecting farmers and consumers is its job and demand they reject approval of Monsanto’s GE alfalfa!

Farmers fight to save seed and the DoJ provides cover for Monsanto

” Thomas should have removed himself from the process because of his past employment by Monsanto. Their need to have certain arguments presented was critical. When I looked at the courts opinion I had to ask myself, “Was Monsanto’s corporate staff present during the language design of the opinion?”

Imagine the Supreme Court hearing oral arguments about traffic signs. I can read the opinion now, the stop and yield signs are equal in authority. Perhaps they are, but completely different functions occur with each. One stops traffic completely, the other allows traffic to merge smoothly.

Something similar happened when JEM Ag V. Pioneer Hi-Bred Intl. was handed down. Clarence Thomas stated the “PVPA & Patent law were equal in authority”, but he failed to relay his confidence of understanding either while writing the opinion. The dissent gave clear statements of confusion by asking ” Why would Congress pass two laws with nearly identical authority?”

We have all watched cop shows with segments in the courtroom. Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?  In today’s corporate climate, the easiest way to gain any legal authority is to orchestrate a legal argument and exploit the ignorance of the Judicial system. Well, in this case the whole truth was conveniently omitted.

I’ve only known one Federal Judge that has ever had his hands in the dirt checking his planters seed placement depth.  Oral arguments lasting only a few days don’t even begin to educate the Judicial system about the complexities of the seed industry today. The only best way to arrive at an opinion is to live the issue. More

Time stands still in a Honey yard

As the slow methodical dance unfolds between the Apiarist and her hives, a drop of sweat slowly rolls down the back of her neck. Even at 40F in February, she knows that the actions she takes now can make or break this colony of 50,000 bees. The husbandry that she applies will provide liquid nectar in a few months time – a sweetener that has been cherished throughout thousands of years by the human race, and of course, wildlife. More

What makes a corporate hiney hugger, hug?: Just ask John Block!

________________________________

A February 20, 2010 article by John Block in the Wisconsin State Journal was quite possibly one of most extreme cases of corporate hiney hugging to come along in quite some time.  After reading this piece, I couldn’t help but wonder how brown Mr. Block’s nose was?  As a result of this obvious collection of disinformation and intentional misinformation; I decided I had to respond.  I have included actual statements from Mr. Block’s article and these appear in blue print and have provided a list of resources to document my response.____________________________

Block: “I left my post as the nation’s 21st secretary of agriculture in 1986, for instance, the average crop yield per acre in the United States was 33.3 bushels per acre for soybeans and 119.4 bushels per acre for corn. As of last year, thanks to the onset of almost revolutionary seed technologies, those yields rose to 39.7 bushels per acre for soybeans and 153.9 acres for corn.”

Mr. Block fails to mention those “revolutionary seed technologies” have come at a massive cost to the environment and that no verifiable evidence exists to substantiate his grandiose claim of 153.9 bushels per acre as a result of forced gmo use.  The only evidence, if you can call it that, of any increase at all was provided by the same companies who developed and sold the seeds and the accompanying chemicals necessary to grow them.

HSUS and PETA

“Shame on so-called beef and cattle industry leaders for focusing attention on HSUS while they do nothing to turn the tide of consolidation that’s flooding the independent cattle producers of the United States and Canada. They are as guilty as HSUS.”

                                                                                                                                                               From the Center for Consumer Freedom:

Despite the words “humane society” on its letterhead, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) is not affiliated with your local animal shelter. Despite the omnipresent dogs and cats in its fundraising materials, it’s not an organization that runs spay/neuter programs or takes in stray, neglected and abused pets. And despite the common image of animal protection agencies as cash-strapped organizations dedicated to animal welfare, HSUS has become the wealthiest animal rights organization on Earth.   HSUS is big, rich, and powerful – a “humane society” in name only.

The Drive to Eliminate Social Security in America

“What will the reformed Social Security look like? Again, the Conservative think tanks have an idea waiting in the wings: personal savings accounts.  In the same way that 401(k)s killed the pension, Social Security is set to be privatized for the mighty benefit of Wall Street.”

Global Research, February 23, 2010

In Washington each new day brings a fresh call to reform entitlement programs Social Security, Medicare, etc., (in Congress, the word reform now means to eliminate, or drastically reduce).  Tackling Social Security has been on the to-do list of the corporate elite for years, and they’re not waiting any longer.  After years of promoting this cause, conservative think tanks have now garnered solid support from the political establishment as a whole, which includes the Republican and Democratic parties. 

The newest liberal recruit to the destruction of Social Security is Thomas Friedman, the influential columnist for The New York Times, who wrote recently:

The president needs to persuade the country to invest in the future and pay for the past… We have to pay for more new schools and infrastructure than ever, while accepting more entitlement cuts than ever [Social Security, Medicare, etc.] when public trust in government is lower than ever.  (February 20, 2010).
