LIE-berals DO LOVE to wander away from subjects that MAKE THEM LOOK BAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Organic food is a marketing ploy and totally FAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As for Percy Schmeisser and his "day in court" under a LIE-beral judge- its best that LIE-berals NOT discus that so they do not look like TOTAL HYPOCRITES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The WILD IRONY in all this MOnsanto crap is that LIE-berals are sucking up to Monsanto Corp IN A BIG WAY!!!!!!!!!!!
And then sneering at people like Stephen Harper for being "friendly" to business in Canada!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Recently somebody posted this piece about Monsanto and its genetically modified foods:
RE Monsanto suing farmers
Steve Marsh (in Australia) went to court in 2010, seeking more than $80,000 in compensation, but the Supreme Court dismissed the case in 2014...
(Marsh sought compensation from neighbouring farmer named Baxter- whose genetically modified crops continually CONTAMINATED HIS fields!)
...It is noteworthy that both parties were supported financially. Monsanto contributed to Mr. Baxter's costs while Mr. Marsh's campaign was supported by the Safe Food Foundation...
(SO Marsh had to rely on the charity of people worried about Monsanto bullying while Baxter had his bills PAID by the corporate BULLY!)
...Marsh lost income for three years on his farm due to the GM contamination from Baxter's fields. He sought leave to appeal to the High Court, but it was dismissed just days ago...
(LIE-beral minded courts support Monsanto in DENYING a farmer such as Marsh- or the Cdn Percy Shmeisser the RIGHT to sell their crop UNLESS they have a sales permit from Monsanto! But the court IGNORES how freely pollen from Monsanto plants crosses property lines and contaminates fields of crops belonging to others- such as Marsh!)
...This decision means Marsh has no further avenue of appeal, and Monsanto and others win again in their aggressive plans to hold farmers accountable for patent infringement while taking no responsibility for contaminating farmers' fields that want no part of the GM farming paradigm at all...
Monsanto has been suing farmers in the US for over 16 years, and never once has lost a case.

I say: this is a very bare bones description of the trouble Monsanto is brewing up. If Monsanto had only sued an Australian farmer it might not have been so bad, but they have sued farmers around the world-including here in Canada-with the same shameless pro Monsanto results!
Alberta Rapeseed farmer Percy Schmeisser is from the old school-he does Not buy seed from Monsanto or from any other source-instead he saves a portion of his crop each year to use as seed for the next years crop. He has NEVER bought seed from Monsanto and yet Monsanto has sued him for using their seed without permission.
Schmeisser was interviewed by Alberta news people one spring day-standing in the road by one of his fields while his farmer/neighbours trucks roared by-each one loaded with Monsanto seed. And Alberta prairie is WINDY-and the trucks are open backed and with each bump in the road and with each wind gust, a little Monsanto seed is spilled. Schmeisser can point to clumps of that seed growing wild in the ditches along the roads and in his fields-its been spilled everywhere around him. And this is not the only source of contamination of his land-Monsanto Rapeseed produces pollen just like older-non Monsanto varieties of the plant and the pollen blows on the wind and each year MORE of Schmeissers fields are contaminated with Monsanto pollen blown in from the neighbours fields.
And each year Monsanto has sent ever more threatening letters to Schmeisser-DEMANDING that he STOP USING THEIR PRODUCT even though he is Not using it-instead he is simply dealing with spilled seed and spilled pollen that is blowing on the wind from his neighbours fields! Finally the level of contamination became so high that Monsanto hauled Schmeisser into a Cdn court and sued Him for using their product without permission-they DEMANDED that he uproot HIS crop from HIS land and destroy it AND pay THEM damages for using their product without permission!
In the normal world-if I do something on my land that contaminates your lands then you can SUE ME....but Monsanto is not an ordinary company-they are GROSSLY arrogant and very wealthy and have an army of lawyers just itching to earn their juicy retainers and so they sued Schmeisser because his neighbours have contaminated HIS land and HIS crop with THEIR Monsanto seeds and pollen.....and Monsanto has WON that lawsuit against Schmeisser!
This is proof positive that justice is FOR SALE to the highest bidder and you know some pissant farmer from Alberta (or one from Australia) simply is not going to put one over on one of the worlds largest corporations. The only way Schmeisser (or Marsh) can continue to grow rapeseed without being sued by Monsanto is if they uproot their ENTIRE current crop and burn it and then buy more seed from an alternate source-not contaminated by Monsanto-and THEN ERECT A BARRICADE SO LARGE-around their properties that it will prevent pollen from neighbours crops from blowing off their fields onto fields owned by Marsh and Schmeisser and further contaminating THEIR CROPS.
This is legal madness-Monsanto has created a product that can readily contaminate the lands of other people and Monsanto has then sued these other people because these other people FAILED to prevent their land from being contaminated! And the arrogant swine at Monsanto call this justice?
And some jackass read the piece about Aussie farmer Marsh and posted this rant in response:
Monsanto has done more for consumers and producers since world war two. if you take away glyphosate you take away farmers ability to grow cheap food. you will then be raising your food bills to the point of starvation. but Toronto will still survive, your liberal government will simply import food from china. then you will be eating lead arsenic plus ddt and god only knows how many other toxins. this might actually be a benefit to Canada if Toronto dies off.
I wonder how many Monsanto shares the jackass owns? Monsanto has created some useful chemical fertilizers and some handy pesticides and herbicides-they are useful tools for the farmer who may use Monsanto products-OR NOT ON HIS LAND as he sees fit and according to purchase agreements!)
(But when Monsanto rams its products down the throats of people who donít want the product and uses its money to BUY legal judgements and buy courts then we have a MAJOR problem...and anybody who would defend Monsanto in this is a good little Nazi and a nasty little dictator!! If Monsanto represents the future of farming and food production then we are ALL in serious trouble!)
