The March to Stop Monsanto: Taking Back Our Food, Our Farms, Our Democracy and Our Planet

The March to Stop Monsanto: Taking Back Our Food, Our Farms, Our Democracy and Our Planet

Commented May 30, 2013 at 07:46:03 in Green

“Monsanto is actually the best corporation in the world. Given the fact that we have over 7 billion people on a planet that can only easily sustain 1 billion, and therefore we must cull the herd, Monsanto is the only corporation that is embracing this requirement. Everything they create is carcenogenic, causing a multitude of terminal illnesses. So Monsanto gets it, it understands the imperative, and is working dilligently to cull the herd.

“The entire population of Earth could fit in Texas. If we add Oklahoma, they could all have pools.

The state of California can feed the entire U.S. Add Iowa and we can feed Canada and Mexico too.

Get off it.”

“Eugenics has been around and used by the ultra rich elite for over 100 Years.

Thinning the herd of the weak, useless and less intelligent is something Eugenic believes. They have created organizations like Planned Parenthood, that are now considered normal in societies way of life to keep birthing low.

Monsanto, bringing in Food Products to the masses, that is not really healthy and does nothing to give actual nutrition to the human body, speeds up the death timeline.”

“Thank you for putting it so clearly, I have printed your reply off to show to my friends. How do they get away with the absolute lack of publicity on this entire subject??????
This should be shouted from the rooftops, and people should be "so mad they cannot take it any more". In addition, my cousin, who lives in Vermont, tells me they now have 15% ethanol in some gas stations, compounding this total disaster.”

“E-15 (ethanol at 15 percent of total gasoline blend) is quite destructive in boat engines (never ever use it - indeed use as little ethanol as possible in those motors), and it can also be destructive in engines in older cars (less stainless steel and older rubber compounds in hoses). As an alcohol, ethanol can be corrosive. The main resistors of ethanol above E-10 are not the oil companies - it is the auto and engine manufacturers who fear the government will saddle them with big liability claims for a misguided policy.

Food as fuel - a grand idea. Make Iowans rich.”

“As he stated, ethanol allows the oil to be refined more cheaply. So, the less ethanol there is, the more expensive the refined oil is. Yet, as he explained in the chemical makeup, the more ethanol there is, the less efficient the oil is. So it's about balancing efficiency with cost. once we discover new ways to make batteries cheaper and charge faster, electric will be the way to go. it's actually almost there. you can get really fancy electric cards that get 300 miles per charge...if you're willing to drop around 6 figures for it.”

“I am curious about big oil's involvement with the disaster that is ethanol. The fact that 10% ethanol in gas gives a minimum of 10% less gas mileage is never mentioned anywhere that I know of, so someone in high places is making sure that it is not publicised at all. Here we have a situation where 100% of the energy it takes to manufacture the ethanol is completely wasted , yet it is mandated to be in all of the gas stations in the US. Not even counting the fact that corn takes more out of the earth than almost any other crop, and the land could be used to grow food for this way overpopulated earth.
Is this a ploy for big oil to sell more refined product to put into your gas tank? They do own most of the gas stations after all.”

“Ethanol is beloved by oil companies up to the level of 10 percent of total gasoline demand. It is a huge and highly subsidized octane enhancer that lets oil companies run refineries much more cheaply. Ethanol's subsidies flow to oil companies, which have trading expertise that dwarfs that of tiny ethanol companies. And, of course, ethanol gets a lot worse mileage than gasoline since those oxygen atoms carry no energy during combustion (I'm assuming those on HP know that ethanol is an alcohol and how that differs from a hydrocarbon). Exxon says thanks!”

“To give you the benefit of the doubt, I assume you were replying to some other post as I certainly wrote nothing about banks in mine.
I have not been taught to believe anything about alcohol fuel, my observations have been empirical, in that my Prius tells me what mileage I am getting from each and every fill up, and every time I fill up with 10% ethanol, I receive, measured by my car's computer and by my odometer, a minimum of 10% less gas mileage and go 10% less on that tank than if I had just gasoline in the tank.”

“The fact that 10% ethanol in gasoline gives a minimum of 10% less gas mileage in your vehicle should be enough to stop this insanity. However, it just keeps on going and will be the greatest disaster that has been perpetrated on this world to date. 100% of the energy used to create ethanol is completely wasted, just think about that for a minute.”

“Judge not lest ye be judged. It kinda looks like you could stand to do more in the area of reading counter-arguments to ALL subjects, not just this alcohol fuel subject.
For example, you have told H.Post readers that Canadian Banks were just as bad as American Banks. But the facts are, the number of Canadian Banks that went bust is just about zero, while countless American banks did go bust. So the question is, are you just going to shout from your armchair, or study something that's different from the ideas you've been taught? If you are ready to USE your intelligence, and STUDY something, go to permaculture.com You will see that everything you've been taught to believe about alcohol fuel is wrong.”

Time's Fatuous and Egregious Coverage of Wall Street Prosecutor

Commented Feb 15, 2012 at 21:56:23 in Canada

“From an Upper Canada old boy, sorry you did not enjoy the school, I applaud your scintillating, and deadly accurate assesement of the American justice system. Personally I have no doubt that you have done enough dodgy things in your business life, as I have, that there would probably be other reasons for your incarcaration, but I certainly agree, there is no valid current charge that should have put you there.
I am certain that noone will go to jail for any of the glaringly obviously criminal activity that created the American real estate bubble and bust. The banks and their bevy of lawyers will keep that from happening even if any administration summons up the intestinal fortitude to actually lay the required charges. Congress, in all its fake sanctimony, bought and paid for by the lobbyists, will forever gut, through the fine print, any actual regulations that are thrown their way.
I really wish I could say that Canada is actually much better, but my experience with our banks is identical to the American peon experience, they will only steal your money, and get away with it.
Not that it matters all that much as all our money is fiat money anyway.
Bruce Roberts (1968)”
