    Ok, I will be the first to admit I was ignorant of the company Monsanto so I decided to spend the last hour figuring out who they were so I could make at least a halfway intelligent response. What I learned is very crazy! This company has no ethical sense! I applaud Haiti for turning down anything from this company!!
    I don't even know where to start on informing those who don't know about this company... The lawsuits against small farmers that has ruined lives, the cover up of decades worth of pollution, the genetically manipulated crops that has destroyed farm soil, GMOs that could potentially cause cancer... Damn I could go all day with this list! This company is evil and it doesn't help that it has bought up most of the seed companies nationwide so boycotting them is damn near impossible.
    One more thing, and this is the craziest part, taking Monsanto to the highest court in our judicial system can backfire, they have Clerance Thomas in their back pocket;

    Evil, I tell ya! It's just eeeeevil to develop strains resistant to disease, drought, etc. so that areas that are not suited to ag and have a high rate of starvation can actually feed themselves, rather than depending on outside assistance.

    And, it's even more evil to protect that technology so that they can stay in business and continue to provide these hybrids to low quality ag areas.

    They should go straight to hell.

    :rolleyes:

    The Road to hell is paved with good intentions Si modo, this company may have started out to help the world's hunger issues but it has very little ethical sense. I may be wrong but I'm more than willing to hear about any conclusive studies that show GM plants are non lethal for consumption.

    Here's a thought. Plant the seeds and grow crops to eat rather than eat the seeds.

    Haiti is complaining about the funcicides and pesticides on the seeds. Unbelievable.

    Of course, I'm taking information from Truthout, for craps sake.

    I hear ya, damn near impossible to find a credible site thats not swayed full tilt pro or con.
    From what I've read(remember this Monsanto corp. is new to me) there just isn't enough data to go on;
    The Debate Over Genetically Modified Foods (ActionBioscience)
    Now I'm not condemning them for this, it's the rest of the nonsense they've pulled to get as far as they have. I mean to sue a small time farmer because of this;
    Who Owns Life? Canadian Farmer Sued by Monsanto
    Eventually the Canadian Supreme Court overruled it but this is just one case out of many that Monsanto has strong armed farmers to either use their seeds or face the consequences.

    And that's just from the GM crops... That doesn't include the Enviromental damages they are causing with their "help" on the War on Drugs
    Monsanto and the 'Drug War'

    Agent Orange anyone?
