cryinoutloud: meathome: To put it simply, there's a reason Tom Wolfe dubbed them the "Me Generation" (I find it amusing how they used the same title for the "Millenials", even though it's undeserved).
This is the generation, who is defined primarily by their self-involved qualities. Is there any surprise that they perfected the "I got mine. Fark you!!!" mentality.

Do you realize how farking retarded you sound saying stuff like that, Generation whatever? I'm a boomer, a young one. I'm a treehugger, I'm poor, I deliberately live my life in a way so that I don't use too much, step on too many toes. I try not to be greedy or self-centered or oblivious to others. And I'm just as affected by the shiatty economy and the take-no-prisoners mentality of everyone around me as you are.

You, on the other hand, sound like a two-year old. And a hateful one at that. How self-centered do you have to be to blame every farking thing around you on someone else? That is exactly how very young children act. But maybe you'll grow up someday. If not, you can just go shopping some more and biatch about how you don't make enough money to buy your 75-inch TV because the farking Boomers ruined everything.

But who cares about you anyway? I'm worried about the bees.


You are a minority in your generation and I suspect you know it.

Actual Monsanto ad from the 1960s, when they were selling Agent Orange to the military as a low-toxicity herbicide:

Honestly, fark you.
You might not be part of the immediate problem of a huge generation of selfish idiots, but you're definitely not part of the solution by defending them.
The rest of us are sick of your generation dictating how everything ought to be, and somehow everything always comes back to benefit them, being it cutting taxes for schools and colleges, "conservative" social and economic policies, or just plain attempting to privatize Medicare for everyone under 35. Sick of being told by people who went to college for free in the 70's that we have to work at McDonald's to pay off our student loans, while at the same time biatching we have no industry experience. Sick of being looked down upon when we end up working at McDonald's anyway. Sick and tired of getting blamed for everything that is wrong, despite having little to no control over it.

Worried about the bees? Look at your fellow boomers, who think the almighty dollar is worth more, and any regulation that costs even a single cent is too much of a price to pay to save the bees.

Monsanto: We'll sue you for trying to harvest your own seed from your crops for next year, just because your neighbor uses our genetically altered seed, and because cross pollination, yeah

/Because we own that pattern of ATCG

Corporate Self: I seem more and more people are adopting a "money trumps all" worldview.

People used to want to leave a better world for their children. Now, they just want to maintain their McMansion lifestyles at any cost and fark the lazy kids.

I often wonder why the Boomer ethics eroded so much from those of their parents. I guess the answer lies in that their parent knew hardship and appreciated what they had. Their children grew up in the 50s/60s, the most prosperous era in modern times. Spoiled and entitled they seem value nothing and for all their talk of "personal responsibility" seem to have no trouble blaming all of their failures on everyone else (illegals, gays, muslims) except themselves.

Now, since they are also the most populous generation they will do whatever it takes to maintain their fantasy even if it means leaving their ancestors with mountains of debt and a poisoned planet.

sno man: And some top quality humans getting the massive payout to sell out...
Not only does this taint anything Beeologics comes out with in the future, it calls everything they have ever done into question...


There are now several studies that point to chemical pesticides as having a lot to do with the bee problems. Some of the chemicals we use over here aren't even legal in Europe anymore.

monsanto has genetically modified corn to produce a bacteria that kills larva called BT. corn borer moths are the target, but bees go through a larva stage, and bees collect pollen which includes corn pollen. the corn pollen stored in the bee hive kills the larva, and the hive collapses. but that is conjecture and unproven, and since monsanto has bought the research company studying the problem, the problem has gone away!

revrendjim: Not that I want to defend Monsanto's business practices, but I didn't see where Monsanto is responsible for killing bees.


They're not. That would be like saying Glock is responsible for killing inner-city youth. They just sell a good portion of the tools that make it possible.

Monsanto has to be one of the world's slimiest corporations. If an asteroid took out their headquarters, the world would be a better place several milliseconds later, regardless of any collateral damage..

Gee whiz, throwing money at things until they get their way is really out of character for Monsanto.
