Soon, from Monstanto to your garden…Agent Orange!
Having fucked up the ecosystem by creating super weeds…just like everyone except paid off chemists and Congressmen said they would, Monsanto is ready to really get serious about weeds now:
Farmers accustomed to drenching their fields with Roundup are now battling a monster breed of pigweed that, the New York Times reports, “can grow three inches a day and reach seven feet or more…so sturdy that it can damage harvesting equipment.”
Nature has issued quite a challenge to our ‘weed solution.’ The chemical industry has decided to respond in turn with Agent Orange. To be precise, Dow Chemical is working on seeds that are resistant to 24-D, a component of Agent Orange… presumably because it intends on spraying farmland with wartime defoliant.</em>
Um, no. Monsanto has the world literally by the stomach- they have crafted a monopoly on large amounts of seeds that only flower once and can’t be saved, forcing marginal farmers into bankruptcy by having to buy seed again and again. Then they ruin the land by filling it with these toxic chemicals…that lead to super weeds…that can only be killed by yet more toxic chemicals…
Kilgore: I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn’t find one of ‘em, not one stinkin’ dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like…victory.
