Monsanto is now trying to patent….meat.

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.

  1. But Monsanto is a proud sponsor of the News Hour with Jim Lehrer, so they must be acting in the best interests of the planet and the people, like their ad says. Right? Just like ADM too. (Sarcasm intended if not interpreted)

  2. Yep, just like BP had America’s wetlands and coastline at heart when they put in a well not designed for the depth it was at, without a safety shut off valve…. Like Mr. TF says, good thing BP doesn’t make nukes!
