Really. See the article about the patent filed on Jan 29, 2009 here. Craziness. Coming soon to a grocery store (and farm) near you, unless you act NOW by actually contacting your elected representatives, write letters, and generally DO something.
Here’s an international petition (and a link to the actual patent application too) you can sign, but remember: that isn’t enough. “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty, and you must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing” said Andrew Jackson, the first president in our nation’s history to actually singlehandedly make the effort to cut banking’s nefarious practices off at the knees. He was prescient; he saw what they would become and did his level best to stop it. Too bad he didn’t succeed.
Edmond Burke said that “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
Pay your price. Don’t allow evil to triumph. Sign the petition, and get active.
