I think a lot of USA permies would find this to be awesome:

“This is a victory for all those who think special interests shouldn’t get special deals,” Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) said in a statement on Tuesday evening. “This secret rider, which was slipped into a must-pass spending bill earlier this year, instructed the Secretary of Agriculture to allow GMO crops to be cultivated and sold even when our courts had found they posed a potential risk to farmers of nearby crops, the environment, and human health.”

good news!



I don't know how many of you are into astrology, but here it goes, an article on the astrology of monsanto. I'm not a pro in that regard in any case, though a few forays into the thematic convinced me that there is easily something to it.

Nice, if nothing else it gets information to the attention of a few more people, but after a lifetime of dealing with broken systems I finally came to understand that it is not the system that is broken but the people.
The natural world is where good sense comes from as long as people are crammed together in artificial high population density urban hell holes, confusion will persist.

“Come forth into the light of things, let nature be your teacher.”

—William Wordsworth
“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”

—Albert Einstein

“Nature is full of genius, full of the divinity; so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand.”

—Henry David Thoreau

“The union of heaven and earth is the origin of the whole of nature.”

—I Ching

“In all things of nature there is something of the marvellous.”

—Aristotle

“You will find something more in woods than in books. Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters.”

—Saint Bernard of Clarivaux

Good for US, but let's not forget this is a large and dynamic issue and to paraphrase the great Vandana Shiva "fuck those guys"

She is much more eloquent of course. On monsanto and seed

Hopefully (by engaging our democratic roots) we can start to hold our multinationals accountable Globally.

Nice video, Landon.

Note to self: Need to buy hooks so I can hang this year's seeds from the ceiling.

had to sign in to thank you Viktor, for linking that very thorough article on Monsanto's history linked to astrological charting.

I'd recommend anyone interested in corporate manipulation of the global food supply, particularly in America, to read that excellent report. while there are mentions of planetary links for certain events, there is also a well-written history that bears careful watching.

I was certainly heartened to read of the upcoming Pluto conjunction /Uranus square hitting a sensitive point in Monsanto's inception chart, pity we'll have to wait for 2015 - it will be interesting to watch the (alternative) news uncover their backdoor dealings via government collusion. . .

cheers!
 
I agree. Here's the link: https://richsoil.com/wood-heat.jsp
