International Journal of Biological Science issued
its findings, too, and it found a problem, too, with 3
genetically modified corn varieties produced by the new,
supposedly non-lethal Monsanto. In fact, this study found
the problem to be with the giant Monsanto! �80 percent
of all corn grown in the U.S. had been genetically modified by Monsanto.�
Three strains of corn tested caused serious problems in
the liver (organichealthadvisor.com) and this is
just one example of the risk Monsanto�s food products
pose for the current and future generations of children.

Linn Cohen Cole writes about Monsanto�s �rural cleansing�
Monsanto is everywhere! The First Lady should not miss
omnipotent beings in the halls of the White House, in
Congress, certainly not at the Department of Agriculture
and not at the Supreme Court where Justice Clarence Thomas,
another former Monsanto employee, loves his Monsanto more
than he does our current and future generations of children.
Thomas� appointment, writes Cole, the court has ruled
in favor of genetically altered organisms and, in addition,
has upheld laws protecting Monsanto�s �intellectual property
rights.� As a result, Monsanto�s �rural cleansing� campaign
is chasing farmers off their lands, from one end of
the country to the other, while contaminating nature
with its genetically engineered products. This is all
good, for Clarence, and apparently the White House and
the First Lady, too, flying to and from, above it all!
argues that these rulings are in �violation of our civil
rights.� Here is a ��justice,�� Cole continues, destroying
�previously taken for granted and thus undefined civil
and human rights around nature.� We can generalize about
�agriculture� and �commodities� or �profits��but �the
profound truth that this is about life or death and our
civil rights to live� is left out of the argument.
And you would think Thomas, Mr. Obama, and Mrs. Obama
should know all about the civil right to live! But here is the 21st Century is Thomas,
loyal corporate man, Barrack Obama, organizer of the Monsanto-Washington
unification process, and Mrs. Obama saving our children�s
lives from the ravages of obesity!
Obama giving us images of Black obese children and then
Brown obese children and then obese white children, careful
not to give us images of parents working 2 or 3 jobs,
if they are working at all, and children, then, who are
left to eat potato chips and candy, genetically engineered
corn-based products for breakfast, lunch, and sometimes
even dinner, while watching television commercials featuring
genetically fattened chicken. Where are the urban, migrant
poor and the working class children to establish a garden
like the one Mrs. Obama tenders at the White House? (Ah,
�urban cleansing�! They have done that already!).
Unintentional, you think? Corporate and government
indifference is deadly!
food products not only contribute to �obesity� in children
(and adults as well), but also contribute to the rise
in diabetes, cancer, and heart disease (Cole).
Talk about insanity - on a grand level!
But let me reiterate! The installation of Clarence Thomas as an administer
of justice and Barrack Obama as a Commander-in-Chief (or
is that Chef?) at the helm of the U.S. Empire represents
strategic steps, salvos, intended to kill anything human
or natural! (So much for the end of the Agent Orange era!).
Rights are rendered to corporations these dark days.
You can only imagine the light in our future.
to Cole - the author, like so many of us non-important,
little people, recognizes from here below, that Monsanto
is practicing a form of �discrimination,� where �one group
is using corrupt means to discriminate against a defined
segment of the population - all of us who wish to live.�
is not alone in condemning not only Monsanto but also
the system that is out to destroy life, human and nature,
on this planet. Cole�s observation is one voiced by those
few of us Black commentators who were critical of that
mechanizing and criminalizing system and the selection
of Obama (the first �Black� president) chosen by Wall
Street and the corporate rulers to oversee the further
progress of a One World order. But the foot soldiers of
�progress,� the liberal-progressive-alternative-left media
thanked the Daley Machine on LaSalle
Street and obliged the Democratic Party by bracketing
our warnings in double, triple parenthesis - with a warning
of their own: shut up!
�Progress� is buying the double talk and eating the
crap! And we are where we are today!
writes: Obama �is a black man [the George Wallace of this
generation] overseeing a government that is discriminating
and abusing a marginalized group.� But it is not one racial
or ethnic group, or one class, or only women marginalized
today. Here is a George Wallace in controlling and selling
humans and the land to the Monsantos of the world, the
KKK, Cole argues. All of us are the little Black children
All of us are the little people subject to whims of
the state police and the �food� police, and labels of
�terrorists� or �food� terrorists.
