Hours after their victory in the Supreme Court, seed and chemical giant Monsanto filed for bankruptcy citing the enormous cost of “buying everybody off.” At a hastily called press conference, Monsanto CEO Hugh Grant told assembled reporters the company never really thought through their "buying everybody off, scheme ."

The crazy neighbors discover the internet

 Back in the 1960s when I was a kid in a small town in Pennsylvania,  there were always a few people known as the  crazy neighbor.  They weren't dangerous, but everyone in the town knew them.

"If Hitler had GMO technology, he would have fed GM corn to the Jews and not even bothered with the trouble of constructing gas chambers. He could have disguised it as a “government assistance” program, offering free food to all those of Jewish ancestry. Oh yes, and free vaccines, too. The combination of vaccine chemicals and GMO toxins would …
