1. Monsanto is out to kill the world.

 

If I buy a seed, I'm buying it, not renting it. We re-plant from seeds we've grown every year. I try to avoid GMOs, but Monsanto has "seed police" they send out to get DNA samples (illegally mind you) from farms near GMO customers and if there's any trace of cross-pollination, which is almost unavoidable, they sue the neighboring farmer on the grounds of patent infringement. Congress has done nothing to stop this practice. They get too much money from Monsanto, Dupont, and other agra-giant companies. Meanwhile, the small farmer (yes, 300 acres is small) are getting the shaft. It's just wrong.
