Monsanto Protection Act – Thank You Congress!

By Tisha T. Casida

In another blatant exposition of the corruption at our federal level of government, a bill passed without much opposition from either side of the aisle (because our representatives don’t actually read or write the bills that they are passing) that protects multi-national "food" conglomerate Monsanto from being held responsible for its sown seeds (its genetically modified, untested, unproven-how-it-affects-humans sown seeds).

Basically this bill stops the ability of consumers to seek redress in the federal judicial system for harmful or dangerous products being sold and harvested by Monsanto. Federal courts cannot stop the sale or planting of Monsanto’s products – even if they are found to be dangerous or life-threatening. Yay for us! I am so glad we are relying on Congress and Big Business to protect our health and wellness.

Shame on our President, shame on our lawmakers, shame on the people who conspiratorially created this bill that in effect harms consumers and ultimately the health and well-being of our country and children. May the consumers, farmers, and food freedom lovers of this country give you the spanking that you deserve.

Now, not to worry – we have tons of power at the State level and in our counties to stop corporations with mal-intent from entering our food system. We are a bit behind the curve on this one, but we can make up for it. If you are mad, go out and buy a share of products from a local farmer. If you are mad and have some investment capital, go out and buy some farmland. If you are mad and have time on your hands, work on a city or state-level resolution to stop Monsanto and other corporations from working with lawmakers to create laws that erode your personal rights and food freedom.

We are the ultimate authority of how we spend our money and time. Let’s stop screaming at our pathetic federal representatives, and instead work at the State and local level to take our food freedom back!

Won't Work My Friend

It's gonna take the hundredth monkey to make a change. Sorry.

skippy

Evil

If you look in the dictionary under evil you will see Monsanto logo !!!!!

Tisha, you have a heart of gold.

I doubt you will listen to a word I say, but I will say it anyway. The states and counties are no better than the Fed. The farmers around here are ALL catching on the Agenda 21 - it was the COVER story for the local "Ag Weekly" last week. And still... the guy sitting in the P&Z office (who happens to be the FEMA director... what a coinky-dink!) still has more power than all the farmers in this agriculture based community. Sure, we have a Sheriff who says he won't obey "Un-Constitutional orders" about the second amendment, but he will not bat an eye at evicting someone off their own land if they put a composting toilet in.
The battlefield is in your backyard, literally. Grow your own liberty. It not only grows on trees, but on tomato plants and squashes. "Politics" at any level is about one person getting control over a group of people - it will never be the path to liberty.
To be clear, I DO think it is worth occupying every elected seat we can, but unless and until the election process is totally revamped, it is a lost battleground. And in the end, it comes back to self governance. If I do not secure my own liberty, I am not really free. And once I secure my own liberty, why would I elect someone to rule over me? The moral thing at that point is to help others secure their liberty, not join the ranks of slaves.
Which brings me to Monsatan. This is about the ultimate form of slavery - if you cannot feed yourself, you are as dependent upon the government as a newborn child is upon its mother. Grow your own r3volution.

Monsatan has quite an impressive list

of false advertising charges and convictions in the past.

Still with the "incompetence" angle?

"because our representatives don’t actually read or write the bills that they are passing"

After over a decade of evil deeds from our government, isn't it about time we put to bed the "incompetence" angle? Please. If were just incompetence then they'd have to get it right at least sometimes. But do they ever?

Clarence Thomas, a predisposed Monsanto Attorney turned Supreme.

4 min. argument against Clarence Thomas ruling in favor of Monsanto ® related Supreme Court cases. Clarence Thomas is a multiple offender. Offending our nation & our seeds, for which plants stand.

Far Be It For Me To Ever Say Anything Good About Monsanto...



...and I'm not going to now; but one paragraph in the post seemed less than Liberty orientated...


"(A) Basically this bill stops the ability of consumers to seek redress in the federal judicial system for harmful or dangerous products being sold and harvested by Monsanto. (B) Federal courts cannot stop the sale or planting of Monsanto’s products – even if they are found to be dangerous or life-threatening. (C)Yay for us! I am so glad we are relying on Congress and Big Business to protect our health and wellness."


A. I buy an apple. I don't like it. Made me sick. Who do I seek redress from, the market where I bought it, the produce wholesaler, the orchard owner, the nursery that grew the tree or Monsanto for selling him a GMO seed?
I'd prefer the Federal Court not dictate what is harmful and dangerous for me. I bought the apple.

B. I'd prefer the courts not dictate what we cannot grow and consume because 'they' have determined something to be dangerous or life threatening...like tobacco...or marijuana...or the perfect modified banana.

C. I would just as soon bash myself repeatedly in the head with a 4 slice toaster than rely on Congress and Big Business to protect my health and wellness.


Liberty is independence. Independence requires personal responsibility. Responsibility includes making the right decisions. Allowing or expecting government or business to make those decisions for you is not Liberty.

I am not in defense of Monsanto at all.
They could sell shots of battery acid at the bar and I would still chose not to drink one. Like Yeager. :-)

So I went to a Monsanto demonstration once. Then the organizers' runner arrived with arms full of their food orders from...wait for it...McDonalds. I'm laughing and telling them I couldn't believe they were shoveling down that soylent pink slime garbage and were worried about seeds!
Kinda like washing down a couple of pork chops with a diet coke...



Exercise Liberty.

Willful dereliction of duty

There was plenty of time for the pols to be informed especially with all the petitions circulating since last summer.

I posted this article on another DP GMO thread on November 5, 2012

FOCUS: Is Monsanto About to Gain Immunity From Federal Law?
www.readersupportednews.org/news-section2/312-16/12295-focus

How is it that members of Congress were “unaware” the Monsanto Protection Act existed when you had Organic Consumers Association, Center for Food Safety, Food Democracy Now and the Alliance for Natural Health USA and other orgs protesting the rider? There is no excuse for such willful dereliction of duty.

Marbury v. Madison, 5 U.S. 137 (1803)

This is one of the leading cases in the history of the U.S. The opinion of the court was “Anything that is in conflict is null and void of law; Clearly for a secondary law to come in conflict with the supreme law was illogical; for certainly the supreme law would prevail over any other law, and certainly our forefathers had intended that the supreme law would be the basis for all laws, and for any law to come in conflict would be null and void of law.

It would bear no power to enforce, it would bear no obligation to obey, it would purport to settle as though it had never existed, for unconstitutionality would date from the enactment of such a law, not from the date so branded by a court of law. No courts are bound to uphold it, and no citizens are bound to obey it. It operates as a mere nullity or a fiction of law, which means it doesn't exist in law.”

Might the US Supreme Court w/ Give us Justice?

Interesting he was a Monsanto Attorney

That's an interesting point that he was a Monsanto Attorney. I won't dispute the wrongness of that corporation. But, I think it is also worth acknowledging that Thomas was influenced by Ayn Rand, and admits to having very strong libertarian leanings. So, while he may of worked for a dirty company, it might not mean he's a bad person. Most of us in this lifetime will more than likely find ourselves working for a crappy company at some point.

Monsanto, the Government, & Monopoly Claims
[Monsanto, in their own words, about the words in films against their actions.]

The film states a Supreme Court decision involving plant patents was written by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who once worked for Monsanto. The film suggests the decision was influenced by Thomas’ previous employment with Monsanto. The case in question was Pioneer Hi-Bred International v. J.E.M Ag Supply and involved a Monsanto competitor. Monsanto was not a party to that case.

Clarence Thomas worked for Monsanto for a few years but has not been employed by Monsanto since the 1970s, long before the company was involved in biotechnology or owned a seed business.

The Supreme Court’s decision in Pioneer v. J.E.M. upheld the ruling of the appeals and lower court decisions that plants are indeed subject to patent protection under U.S. patent law. The Supreme Court agreed with both lower courts.

While Justice Thomas indeed wrote the majority opinion, this was a 6-2 decision. Justice Thomas was joined by Chief Justice Rehnquist, and Justices Scalia, Kennedy, Souter and Ginsberg – none of whom have or had any association with Monsanto. Justices Breyer and Stevens dissented, and Justice O’Connor did not participate in the decision....

============ US Supreme Court own words==============
Clarence Thomas, Associate Justice,
was born in the Pin Point community of Georgia near Savannah June 23, 1948. He married Virginia Lamp in 1987 and has one child, Jamal Adeen, by a previous marriage. He attended Conception Seminary and received an A.B., cum laude, from Holy Cross College, and a J.D. from Yale Law School in 1974. He was admitted to law practice in Missouri in 1974, and served as an Assistant Attorney General of Missouri from 1974–1977, an attorney with the Monsanto Company from 1977–1979, and Legislative Assistant to Senator John Danforth from 1979–1981. From 1981–1982, he served as Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights, U.S. Department of Education, and as Chairman of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission from 1982–1990. He became a Judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in 1990. President Bush nominated him as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, and he took his seat October 23, 1991.

This is important

enough to bump again. Looks like the traitor in question is Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri. We should think of something real nice for him.... maybe a fruit basket.

Monsatan at it again

The most evil corrupt corporation in the world. I think this protection act gives them cover for poisoning people in the past. Russian scientists believe over 2 million Americans have already died from GMO's.

I would expect no less from a company that openly poisoned thousands in Anniston Alabama.

They know how dangerous their chemicals are:
