Mitt Romney is supposed to be a Christian. How could he have had a hand in this, how can he continue to take their money and let his campaign be advised by this group?

He wouldn't be the first to sell his soul in the quest for power.....

I don't think it matters who is running things....we just need to keep spreading the word until these guys realize if they want to be reelected they must address this issue...namely ban this crap.

That bee thing is very troublesome as well and needs to be addressed asap

Not that any of them are caped crusaders - who would never get elected - but it does matter who is running things. Some politicians are much more heavily involved with Monsanto et. al. than others. And who is president makes an immediate difference in all kinds of other policies that have major effects on people's lives.

That article the video refers to really is an important piece of research. They suggest this may have an effect not merely on individuals, but on the genetics of the species.

From the conclusion:

With their robust stability and highly conserved sequences, secretory miRNAs can act not only in a cross-species, but also a cross-kingdom fashion. In this sense, miRNAs may represent a novel class of universal modulators that play an important role in mediating animal-plant interactions at the molecular level. Like vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients derived from food sources, plant miRNAs may serve as a novel functional component of food and make a critical contribution to maintaining and shaping animal body structure and function. Extending from this concept, the intake of certain plant miRNAs generation after generation through a particular food source may leave an imprint on the genetic map of the human race. In conclusion, the discovery of plant miRNAs and their roles in the biology of mammalian cells and animal organs represents the first evidence of cross-kingdom transfer of functionally active miRNAs and opens a new avenue to explore miRNA-mediated animal-plant interactions.

Well Romney certainly isn't going to go to bat against Monsanto's Genetic Agriculture business. He was instrumental in building it. For profits, this man would sacrifice God's earth.

"Mitt Romney, Monsanto Man"

Though Mitt Romney has been campaigning for president since 2006, it’s alarming how little is known about critical chapters of his business biography. Nothing spells that out more clearly than his ties to Monsanto—the current target of a mid-September Occupy nationwide action—whose dark history features scandals involving PCBs, Agent Orange, bovine growth hormone, NutraSweet, IUD, genetically modified (GM) seed and herbicides, reaching back to the 1970s and ’80s. That’s when Monsanto was the largest consulting client of Romney’s employer, Bain & Company, and when Romney helped move Monsanto from chemical colossus to genetic giant, trading one set of environmental controversies for another.

We need an uproar alright. Monsanto's Roundup Ready seeds are taking over every major crop. People are now harboring bacterium based roundup factories in their guts. This is insanity. I just can't believe this is happening to our planet. When you say Obama won't do anything about it why is that? What can a president do to that end? Is that something that Congress needs to address? Who control's Congress now? How powerful is Monsanto? Do you think they can be stopped and an immediate ban on Monsantan's Roundup Ready Seeds?

Everybody needs to see this video about Monsanto Roundup Ready Seeds. Bain capital helped build this company. It's one of Romney's major lobby group supporters.


That's crazy.. corn is everywhere and they feed it to everything and I have kids.. Need to make a list of acceptable foods for my grocery lists.. most meats and vegetables now? great...

How do I find out more about avoiding these types of foods?

"What is bent cannot be straightened
What is broken cannot possibly be counted"

BUT REMEMBER - Politics is a game of compromise and not a game of perfection... prioritizing values and picking your battles along with compromise is the reality of the situation if you want to be a participant/politician.. We all have our different opinions about where the priority should be and which battles to pick and which compromises are acceptable or most reasonable.. However, this certainly takes Romney down a notch in my book since he's webbed into that scenario.. However, every politician is webbed in somewhere, even Obama, its unavoidable..

Here's a video of Romney in his younger days letting loose.. He said one day, I will make millions and become president..

Go back and look at the last 20 years from non-partisan sources, and look at the correlation between corporate profits and the average pay of the middle class vs the wealth of the uber-rich.

How could anyone argue against it?

It didn't use to be this way. It's just gotten more and more worse and pronounced in the last 20 years because more and more laws have been passed to corrupt our politicians into doing exactly what the corporations want. We The People are simply no longer represented.

All it takes is a few billion dollars of ads to convince people of anything you want to convince them of. They love sound bites, and certainly can't be bothered to conduct their own research, since American Idol is coming on in a few minutes. So they just believe whatever you put in front of them.

Whoever has the most money and tells the most lies, wins.

Mike

Just another off the wall idea that popped in my head. We get all these election and issue ads at primetime and highly watched weekend hours funded by millions of dollars of both parties. When is there ever going to be a white knight billionaire or corporation worth billions who are going to fund education ads outside of election season to inform the millions of passive viewers the problems that are destroying the country i.e. QE unlimited, how the banks and corporations are controlling the government etc. And suggest means to change the country's course such as massive petition and referendum drives. To help the millions of people be aware of the urgency of the problems instead of aware of the details of American idol ,MTV, and other fantasy passive programming. The people out of work may not have access to a computer , but probably most can still watch basic tv. Notice how they took off the old analog TV waves about 7 years ago. So poor households that still had uhf/vhf tv could only try to get a digital reception antenna which is far poorer reception in most places than the old system and limited mostly to the major networks. Then you have the radio programs which seem to be controlled by the right's propaganda machines i.e. Limbaugh and Hannity still distracting from the real problems or marginalizing them and blaming the other side. I guess all the rich billionaires are all hampered and held hostage by the elite cabal with death threats or dire consequences even if they wanted to speak out. But instead billionaires like that crazy plus-sized Australian lady gets the attention for her corporate slaving remarks. What happened to the Ross Perot independent movement, the last billionaire to warn of the true economic dangers and the increasing debt crisis. Is it ever coming back? Or was it just an interference play as many have speculated to hand the election to Clinton.
