For eight years I have been the leading supplier of hybrid seed corn in Winneshiek County, and the reason is clear: My seed is pure!

I have come to assume my dominant position in this farm community due to the high quality and timely delivery of my seed. Come to Schmidt Feed & Farm Supply, conveniently located in Kendallville just over the bridge, and you will leave smiling and satisfied in every way, if not utterly amazed at the performance. You must have my seed!

Use my select seed, and your crop will show resistance to blight and drought and be less susceptible to strain stalk diseases. If you do not believe me, I will take you to my farm and show you the potency of my seed. Strong, turgid, fattening plants shoot up through the ground in the torrid Iowa sun.
Grab the thick base of the stalk in your hand and feel that it is alive and growing larger by the minute. Sweat will shine on your face as you ride my massive tractor around the grounds of my expansive farm.
I will smile down at you as you kneel and gently run your hands through the moist patch of dense growth at my most precious, secret spot-the plot of land where I personally test each and every variety of seed corn that I sell.

Ask me for my seed, and the day you have longed for, the day you have dreamed about, will soon arrive: When the corn is large and ripe for the taking, you can place your lips around the heavy cob, savoring the texture, the smell and, finally, the taste as you bite gently and your mouth is filled with sweet juice.

SquiggsIN: Theaetetus: SquiggsIN: The law is wrong, the precedent is wrong, and it needs to be fixed.

Sure, but then your complaint shouldn't be about "stupid judges" or "corrupt courts", but rather "stupid legislators" and "corrupt congress". 

Do you wonder why people hate lawyers too?

Nah, it's normal. People tend to hate and fear that which they don't understand.

That's the worst part about most lawyers.  You all think you're smarter than the rest of us because you're in the DELIBERATELY-CONVOLUTED PROFESSION of law-making.


I'm also an engineer. That makes me even more technical and pedantic.

tlars699: highendmighty: This lawsuit brought to you by the makers of Agent Orange - destroying food for 3 generations.

Seriously? I need links, to spread on the facebooks.


wiki Monsanto - you get this: The company also formerly manufactured controversial products such as the insecticide DDT, PCBs, Agent Orange, and recombinant bovine somatotropin (a.k.a. bovine growth hormone).
Their first ever product was saccharin.   PRAISE THE ARTIFICE!
On the bright side, they did develop LED's...

SquiggsIN: DNRTA

I've kept up with most stories associated with agribusiness for a long time.

Monsanto is one of the most evil companies on the planet.

I don't know what has to happen to get more publicity on what is going on with our food system.  We have fewer and fewer companies controlling more and more of our supply and their goals generally have profit above safety or fairness.  Do we wait until every plant on the planet is patented?  I think Monsanto would love to spread their GMOs to the point they can sue you for the crabgrass in your yards.


Between the corporations farking us, the bankers robbing us, the police beating us, and the government growing increasingly corrupted about it all, it's hard to keep any one story going for any length of time.

anyone get the feeling it's time to start burning everything down?

Such a farce - WHY even claim there is 'democracy' any more.....(or a 'republic' as you Yanks like to say)

Are they next going to patent the load I put in my sock tonight??

Hope I don't spill any since that then could be used to make another me through cross contamination - and TRUST ME you do NOT want another ME!

meow said the dog: It is not something which I have the familiarity but sometimes I do the wearing of the boy briefs because they have the comfort so perhaps for the boy this is also the thing which provides to he the comfort. Was this the boyshorts or the thong of the underwear? I am not someone who has the assureness of this but would wish for learning of so.

Blues_X: So, if their seeds are blown onto your property and germinate, they can sue you for not paying for them?

Am I reading that right?


Yes.

Many thanks to Greenpeace for paying for the laws that made both this lawsuit and Monsanto's dominant market position possible.
