Alfred Reed Bishop and Doris William Butler

The picture above is the very tap root of Bishop's Homegrown/Face Of The Earth Seed. My grandparents shortly after moving to Pekin Indiana from Greensburg KY in 1947 where they purchased the farm that is now Bishop's Homegrown. This picture was taken in Pekin in front of the old co-op next to the old railroad depot, neither of which exist today.

Monsanto, Vilsack, Obama, and Population control.

According to this article from Greepeace, Monsanto's GM products may work well for one thing that we have discussed in the past here, population control. Yeah, that's right, these Genetically Modified crops are either by proxy causing infertility in mice (which could lead to consequences in human fertility) or could it be that they may even have been engineered to do exactly that? Would that suprise you? It wouldn't me. Take a moment and do a little research regarding what is currently transpiring in the lawsuits by Monsanto against seed cleaners in Illinois and Indiana and their backhanded tactics.

Take a moment, look at your incoming U.S. president, do you think he represents anything close to change? Who did he appoint as the United States Secretary of Agriculture? Tom Vilsack, another Monsanto and GMO shill if ever there was one. Responsible for the introduction of the seed pre-emption bill in 2005, effectively blocking local communities from regulating where genetically engineered crops would be grown and was the founder and former chair of the Governor's Biotechnology Partnership as well as being named Governor of the Year by the Biotechnology Industry Organization.

Change. Right, don't we wish.

Now here they are destorying another facet of our health, destroying our fertility, and we are supposed to support these monsters?

Our children may save us if they are taught to care properly for the planet;but if not, it may be back to the Ice Age or the caves from where we first emerged. Then we'll have to view the universe above from a cold, dark place. No more jet skis, nuclear weapons, plastic crap, broken pay phones, drugs, cars, waffle irons, or television.
Come to think of it, that might not be a bad idea.

I think it's really important to use blogs to get this kind of information out to people. I really think anything from vague theories to pretty certain things are fair game.

At the same time, I think you have some obligation not to publish anything you know is wrong or misleading.

Blogs are really different from anything else. You aren't a scientist who's work will be peer reviewed. You aren't a newspaper with an editorial policy. The only thing you are is a person, and if you are interesting people will read what you write. If not, they will find other things to read, and there's no harm in that either.

In fact, if you ever find yourself in a situation where you are publishing boring stuff, and you lose most of your readers, they will all come back again as soon as your writing improves. Or, you just throw you blog away and start a new one under a new name. You have nothing to lose!

Again, as long as you aren't publishing something you know is wrong, everything you write is a contribution. Every time we publish something like you did here, it only makes it that much harder for the people behind it to get away with it, because you are exposing them for who they are and documenting what they do. Even if no one pays attention to it right away, it still goes into search engines to be found later by people doing research.

Blogs really represent a new phase in democracy, providing instant and uncensored information. Their popularity is grow fast too, and it's exciting to watch.
