This made me laugh and many other emotions all at the same time - great way to get out info to a wide audience.

..and a follow up with some further interesting info toward the end - sorry for the hand held recording of this, it's what I found poking around on the topic

An interesting post from a concerned local who may or may not be involved in agriculture, yet seems knowledgeable around this topic (though may be that I'm making that judgement based on his video setting?)

Anyways, it's definitely something that adds to the conversation:

When Japan, at least half of which is radioactive, won't buy US Incorporated wheat, that should tell you all you need to know in regards to what is most dangerous.

There are entire countries the USI destroys with missile strikes that are not nearly as dangerous as Monsanto.  People need to wake up and get their priorities straight.

Bang on, Dog-One - corporate responsibility laws are currently a joke - $1,000,000 fine for something that has already cost the farmers now stuck with their crops $350 - $500 mil, in Oregon alone? Messing with the food chain on such vast levels should be a company disbandment offence at minimum.

I'm keen to watch the full docco on Monsanto now:




HOLY S@*T - Now I'm sure that other people have already put these pieces together, but seriously - it's insidious and underhanded and disgusting!!!

Watching this from March 30 after the uproar over the initial bill being snuck into law as a subsection, it puts the context of this wheat leak into crystal clarity.



I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but this one is pretty damn close.

Using humor to discuss how the bill came to be, this from John Stewart back in April:



So now, they can't export it, they can't bar it from sales to the general public, and they can't get rid of it.

WOW.

Where's my tin hat?


Interesting addition to the conversation, the most comprehensive testing on GMO's to date has been completed, and the results are covered in this clip:

..and here I thought I was removed from the issue, due to being an Australian resident

I believe this, as with energy generation, will be a shared global issue, and perhaps the more pressing of the two when it comes down to it.

As to the poll topic...

When a comedian becomes a professor and tells you straight-up what is going on, people should listen, think and fix the source of the problem:

BTW, the "owners" George is talking about aren't limited to North America.
