getimage1Jackass Alert!

The overtaking of several sectors of the federal government by private corporations who routinely use congress and the president to codify their unlawful activity to expand their monopolies has just received a huge gift package from those fine jackasses in the District of Criminals. Monsanto just received a payoff on its massive funding of campaign contributions on both sides of the isle, having the favor returned in the form of a free pass on any kind of control or any kind of judicial penalty on their collective species of invasive seeds.

The Continuing Resolution (CR) which has been pitched as a crisis bill because otherwise the world wouldfarmer3_dees come to an end, included a so-called sneak attack by Monsanto that would give it a free pass. The Monsanto Rider avoids USDA controls and eliminates any judicial system interference. Obviously unconstitutional, the rider violates the right to due process by those harmed by this corporation and establishes a clear pattern of collusion against the public at large.  No one actually wants Monsanto’s products and the grassroots resistance to these toxic crops has been non-stop.  Both houses of congress of course ignored the public backlash as they voted on a full scale corporate hiney hugging love fest.

Through a carefully constructed system of market manipulations, predatory practices, and with the complete cooperation of the USDA and the courts, Monsanto has relentlessly worked to end any farming endeavors that have not been consumed by their market monopoly.  It also helped out immensely that Michael Taylor, alleged former attorney for Monsanto was somehow appointed to the newly created and unconstitutional office of “Food Czar” right inside the White House!  I cannot help but wonder what input he may have had in this rotten deal.

The actual intent of this rider was to relieve congress, the courts and federal agencies such as the USDA, from having to publicly expose themselves as bought and paid for.  This rider actually serves to relieve them of having to expose themselves to any scrutiny or to require them to take any position arbitrary to Monsanto that might cause the  money train to run off the rails.

    Official U.S. definitions regarding invasive species were clearly provided in Executive Order 13112 signed by President William J. Clinton on February 3, 1999.

    Invasive species” means an alien species whose introduction does or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health.

    Alien species” means, with respect to a particular ecosystem, any species, including its seeds, eggs, spores, or other biological material capable of propagating that species, that is not native to that ecosystem.

    Species” means a group of organisms all of which have a high degree of physical and genetic similarity, generally interbreed only among themselves, and show persistent differences from members of allied groups of organisms.

    Ecosystem” means the complex of a community of organisms and its environment.

    Alien plant species, also known as genetically modified organisms, were engineered and introduced into natural environments specifically designed to spread rapidly. Because they are so uncontrollable and engineered to be aggressive, these aberrations of science gone mad rapidly overtake naturally occurring ecosystems and destroy the biodiversity needed to sustain not only the land, but the life on it.  Alien GMO species are an unwelcome interruption, displacing natural plants and crops and all animal species dependent upon them for survival.
