The Monsanto Company likes to proclaim that they are the good guys, here to selflessly feed the world, help with sustainable agriculture, and, as if those lofty goals are not enough, champion human rights across the globe. All you have to do is look at their commitments page to see how worthy they are of a shiny corporate halo:
At the heart of Monsanto is a very clear and principled code of conduct – one we expect all employees, contractors and management to live by every day. We operate under a genuine value system—our pledge—that demonstrates integrity, respect, ethical behavior, perspective and honesty as a foundation for everything we do. Continue reading

Common Dreams – by Abby Zimet
In the time-honored tradition of setting abstract and often wrong-headed partisan politics above the needs of real-life people, Oklahoma’s GOP Sen. Tom Coburn, along with his colleagues a longtime climate change skeptic and foe of federal disaster relief, announced within hours of the devastating tornadoes hitting his state that any federal disaster aid should be paid for with budget cuts elsewhere, no doubt preferably affecting poor people. So when he tweeted that his “thoughts and prayers” were with the suffering victims of “the tragic tornado outbreak,” they weren’t having any of it. Continue reading

Former Williamson County District Attorney Ken Anderson was released on $7,500 bail for charges relating to violating state law and acting in contempt of court by lying to a trial judge.

Anderson had intentionally concealed two items of evidence that would have helped prove Mr. Morton’s innocence. Continue reading
This is what they meant by pot-bellied pig!
We’re getting high on the hog of BB Ranch butcher William von Schneidau, who feeds marijuana to his pigs and sells them at Seattle’s Pike Place Market.

Upon arriving in Mexico City, I noticed that there was what appeared to be a complete lack of cell towers. Yet perfect cell service was everywhere. That got me wondering, how could a cell phone system work so well with no cell towers around? ~ Jim Stone - Videos – Lecture
After stating it on the forum, Bunk Hound got on the American Tower web site and located a few, which I subsequently went to with Google maps, and they were very much like American cell towers. Continue reading
Before It’s News – by stompk
I was watching a satellite loop of the tornado yesterday. I have to say, the HAARP wave patterns in the surrounding clouds was insane. Keep in mind, this tornado came out of nowhere, and in 16 minutes exploded into one of the most destructive tornadoes in history. Continue reading
