Weaver95: why in the hell does Monsanto need a gotdamn private army!?
exick: I'm curious about the U.S. laws that govern this sort of thing. Do we have federal laws describing limits of armaments that "sellswords" can own and operate?
Weaver95: still wracking brains...not coming up with a legit reason for this move by Monsanto. amoral ruthless biotech firm buys amoral ruthless mercenary company and....yeah, that's where my brain veers off into weirdness. there has to be some sort of valid, normal non-conspiracy theory reason for this move but I can't see it.
RodneyToady: There is nothing about this on Bloomberg. I have my doubts.
Weaver95: I am still wracking my brains trying to figure out what legitimate reason there would be for Monsanto to own a bunch of armed thugs...
miss diminutive: So basically, the Empire just bought Weyland-Yutani?Well that's just farking great.
ArkAngel: Perfectly legal for them to do, but I also cannot fathom anything good coming out of this. Can we apply federal anti-trust laws to companies that acquire too many evil subsidiaries?
quickdraw: Mosanto did not buy Blackwater FBmitter. They do hire them - which is creepy on its own but they did not, in fact, buy them as a quick google search would tell you.
tnpir: Weaver95: why in the hell does Monsanto need a gotdamn private army!?Because FARK YOU, that's why.Seriously, one of the most evil companies in the world just bought its own legion of Christian fascist mercenaries. Apparently they plan to take all farmland in the U.S. by force. Pricks.
WhyteRaven74: Weaver95: why in the hell does Monsanto need a gotdamn private army!?Have you heard about the mining company in Wisconsin putting armed mercenary types around their property?
