The Monsanto Scorecard

These are vineyard posts.  Below is the Monsanto Reference Post.
Being that the month of March archive is about war, a Monsanto post is
fitting, being that Monsanto declared war on human civility and the en-
vironment, especially when Round-up reaches water supplies.  So, let's
proceed:

This is a bibliography page of Monsanto-related articles.  Actually, it's a link
page, to YouTube transmissions and writings on the subject of Monsanto, Inc.
You're welcome to make benefit of this one-stop linking.

The probationary period is over, concerning the need to first employ prudence
before presenting Monsanto was the most evil business enterprise ever known
to modern man.  In fact, the more Monsanto gets researched, the more unjust,
poisonous, and predatory that corporation turns out to be.  Monsanto basically
declared war on life-on-earth.

Monsanto gave humanity 1} Saccharin, 2} PBC's (polychlrinated biphenyls)
3} Polystyrene, 4} the Vietnam-related nightmare known as Agent Orange,
and 5} the banned pesticide DDT.  (Monsanto's evil contributions to society
include the dioxin-bearing chemical 2,4,5-T, an ingredient in Agent Orange,)

Monsanto Inc also gave humanity 6} recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone 
(rBGH).  It was additionally the corporation  which marketed 7} G.D. Searle's
methanol-bearing Aspartame in such a way that we don't know who is correct
in the pro vs con health debate on the subject, because the objective clinic find-
ings are not presented in a capsulized outline.

How Evil Thou Art ... Monsanto turned out to be really really evil, after all.

Monsanto also sued farmers, on account of the fact that the farmers cannot con-
trol the wind and therefore cannot prevent Monsanto seeds from blowing onto
their crop fields. All in all, Monsanto is a corporate predator, negatively affect-
ing humanity and the ecology of the Earth.  None the less, accusations against
Monsanto must be presented maturely and clearly without theatrics and any
degree of emotional accentuation.

The evils of any predatory corporation must be presented to-the-point, for the
sake of prompting action that will undo the evil of the unconscionable corpor-
ation.  If society remains indifferent and inactive, then the poisoning of life on
Earth will continue its course.

       You might perhaps want to start here, with a Monsanto documentary
        presented by Abby Martin of the Empire Files.

                    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTi0_ZQtPTY

         If you desire, you can even start here, with the World According
           to Monsanto.  It's a documentary includes covers Monsanto's
          administrative practices, advertising practices, advocations, as
           well as business practices.  It includes one Stalinesque tactic.

food creation process actually is.

Next is the Canadian case of Monsanto seeds inadvertently blowing into many hec-
tares of an independent farmer.  The court judgment and opinion can easily be re-
ferred to as a blatant miscarriage of justice.  Part of a Monsanto contact is read in
the film.  This is the Percy Schmeiser Case.

Concerning the existence of terminator seed technology, Monsanto claims that it
doesn't market such a thing.  Yet, it admits that such technology is a present-tense
possibility.  In fact, in 2007, it was involved in gene-stacking technology & research
with Chromatin, Inc.

Of course, Monsanto's herbicide, Roundup, has been getting the attention, even in
the research laboratory.  More specifically, it has been the Roundup ingredients,
glyphosate and polyethoxylated tallowamine, which has been attracting the atten-
tion.  As an example, glyphosate was found to be a clastogen.  This means that it
breaks chromosome chains even in human beings.

In addition, the Northwest Parkinson's Foundation reported on a connection between
the ingestion/inhalation of Roundup and the development of Parkinson's-related brain
damage.  This makes the issue very serious.

A number of nearly criminal allegations have been leveled against Monsanto.  How-
ever, needed was to first investigate the records, being that a lot of worthless gossip
transpires on the internet and radio talk shows, such as is the case with the all-night
coast-to-coast tin foil hat show which claims that the sky is always falling, some-
times with UFOs, Grays, and an occasional Moth Man, in the spirit of campfire
stories.

No kangaroo courting is permitted here.  So, a bit of research on Monsanto was
first needed.  From the records, archives, and articles, Monsanto does get into a
lot of environmental trouble, in the form of lawsuits.  So, that part is confirmed.
In fact, it appears that Monsanto is a corporation run by individuals who keep
trying to place a square peg in a round hole, for the sake of profit, only to get
served with lawsuits and then earn the distrust of humanity.

Monsanto does appear to be a corporation without a conscience.  But, one has to
be detailed in presenting the evidence, when it comes to the scathing accusations
against Monsanto.  There is cause for the scathing, however.

The corporation has admitted to have committed wrongdoing in Indonesia, between
1997 and 2002.  It was found liable in France, for weedkiller poisoning.  It was even
found liable in an Alabama PCB poisoning case.  None the less, the Alex Joneses of
America and the UFO talk show hosts can't go piling on without evidentiary support.

Here are a list of articles on Monsanto which certainly don't make that corporation
look like a branch of Mother Theresa's Sisters of Charity ... to say the least.

Let's start with articles on Roundup, the Monsanto herbicide and the controversy
of a two-year study on Roundup:
