  •  I do not trust Monsanto. (12+ / 0-)

    They want to grow more food to make money not to feed people.  They want to make money so they will do anything to get to that goal.  As we have seen with many corporations, there is not a concern for the safety of the populace, only for the accumulation of profit.

    Everyone! Arms akimbo!

      The largest problems people have with Monsanto have to do with the patent system regarding seeds. I think there should be significant push to reform the patent laws so that this technology is not held in the hands of profit-driven multnationals, but since this diary was on the regulation of GM crops themselves, I did not mention it.

      Republicans are far more socialist than Democrats. Just because they want to redistribute the wealth upwards does not make it any better.

      Their escaped wheat in Oregon has the potential of costing wheat farmers hundreds of millions due to Monsanto's sloppy practices.

      as such, their number one (and perhaps only) goal is to make money.

      Legally, I think they have, or should, have an obligation to do so safely.  

      But about feeding people, not sure why or how they are obligated to care about that per se.  That's why we have McDonalds!
