IN CASE YOU MISSED IT ON FAUX NEWS OR SEE B.S.: SUPREMES HAND ...
Yesterday I ranted about the corrupt state of the world's biggest and most unresponsive corporation: Amairicunn politics, its "two" party political monopoly system, and the theater of government institutions and (s)election processes designed to serve increasingly naked corporate interests. What has happened, I've been arguing - if indeed a rant, a "venting of frustrations" can be called "argument," is that the preamble to the Constitution was subtly changed in a de facto way, and that there are certain key transitions in this process, one of them being, of course, the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, with the institution of its corresponding Federal Tax Police to make sure the bankers were paid their interest on time. The preamble should now read We the Corporations of the United States of America, in order to form a more perfect union... &c.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not, and have never been friendly to socialism of any sort, for it always seems to degenerate into the hardened forms that malignly informed so much 2oth century history. Without the recognition of the right to acquire and accumulate wealth, human progress stalls and eventually stops. But when wealth is used to subvert the right of others to acquire it, or is used to impoverish them or disempower them, then like all other ideologies, it becomes subversive of the common good. And nothing more adequately illustrates the culture of corporate corruption - crony crapitalism - that modern America has become than the issue of GMOs, for once again, farmers attempting to protect themselves from out of control corporate giants have lost another battle in the jesters' court, and I'll bet, I'll just bet that you didn't hear about this on on Faux News or See B.S.:
Supreme Court hands Monsanto victory over farmers on GMO seed patents, ability to sue
Note the key injustice of the decision of the US Supremes:
'The US Supreme Court upheld biotech giant Monsanto’s claims on genetically-engineered seed patents and the company’s ability to sue farmers whose fields are inadvertently contaminated with Monsanto materials.
"The high court left intact Monday a federal appeals court decision that threw out a 2011 lawsuit from the Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association and over 80 other plaintiffs against Monsanto that sought to challenge the agrochemical company’s aggressive claims on patents of genetically-modified seeds. The suit also aimed to curb Monsanto from suing anyone whose field is contaminated by such seeds.
"The group of plaintiffs, which included many individual American and Canadian family farmers, independent seed companies and agricultural organizations, were seeking preemptive protections against Monsanto’s patents. The biotech leviathan has filed over 140 lawsuits against farmers for planting the company’s genetically-engineered seeds without permission, while settling around 700 other cases without suing."
The article goes on to state that the plaintiffs thought the US Supremes somehow simply didn't understand the farmers' concerns.
But that's the point. The Supremes most surely did understand.
They just don't care. And because they don't care, justice was subverted to serve the twisting of law. This is the same institution that, for reasons of law let us remember, once said that black persons were only 3/5 of a person. This most recent finding would seem to fit their moral track record quite well.
It's important to remember, that supreme court injustices are politicians too, and just like politicians, they can be bought, blackmailed, or coerced too.
See you on the flip side....

“Without the recognition of the right to acquire and accumulate wealth, human progress stalls and eventually stops. But when wealth is used to subvert the right of others to acquire it, or is used to impoverish them or disempower them, then like all other ideologies, it becomes subversive of the common good.”
My humble disagreement with the first sentence is that the acquisition of wealth BEYOND what you actually work for (which in this day and age means working a 40 hr work week PRODUCING some product or service) means that the wealth MUST be stolen from someone else, whether that someone else is an individual or some community. That is pretty much a fact: it is logically impossible to escape (I’d love to see someone disprove that, not simply disagree with it). The problem is that “wealth” accumulation ALWAYS means “for the FEW” (even if “few” equals a few million people in a country like the USA).
And it seems to me that the second sentence quoted above is an accurate description of all of known human history.
When a group of people accumulates “wealth” BEYOND what they actually produce themselves, they ALWAYS work to keep their con going, which means oppressing anyone else within reach in some way . . . . there simply are no exceptions. Our world today is living proof of that.
Modernization should mean that we all can work and produce more to raise the standard of living for everyone. Anyone who accumulates more than they actually produce is nothing less than a thief. If some want to work 80 hrs a week, then fine, they can EARN 80 hrs worth of “wealth” (etc). But to be allowed to “acquire” 1,000 hrs worth of “wealth” a week when you only produce for 40 hrs, that is stealing.
Just because the communists made the insane claim that no one should be allowed to own anything at all is no proof at all that “wealth accumulation” (which always means “for the FEW”) is the ONLY way to “prevent a halt to all human progress.” That is simply a non sequitur without any proof whatsoever.
As always, the method seems to be to try and trick everyone into believing that there are only two options (socialism vs. capitalism) to choose from (when of course there are many). I am surprised that you fall for that sort of thing Joseph, when you are well aware of how corrupt the entire financial system is.
I can only hope for Monsanto executives to get the “banker treatments” of late. #4 in our (literal) Hit Parade:
7-8 “self-inflicted” NAIL GUN wounds. Wow, that’s a lot more determination than the avg suicidal man can muster. Though not quite as considerate as the fellow in London about 5 yrs ago who not only took a huge batch of sleeping pills, he slit his wrists and bled into a garbage bin, you know, out of consideration for the cleaning lady…
The Black Robed Ministers of Strangelovian Just-Us, sponsor & support many a myriad ranges of reaper justice; from the killing of freedoms & liberties, to the deaths of honors & virtues, of truths, of real healthy foods, of real medicines, etc., etc.. Yes! For these Minsters, the poetic: death be not proud, is an obamanation(fellow executive death reaper in worldwide wars[Obama’s Nation]. As brother reapers, they don’t see why The Reaper shouldn’t feel a certain sense of accomplishment, given the thoroughness of his work and his unchallenged record of successes.
I suppose they would agree with the late great senator from Alaska, Ted Stevens, and define justice this way:
“It’s not a truck. It’s a series of tubes”.
In fact, they reconfigured the Earth First! credo to their own version:
By every means necessary we will bring this and every form of liberty, and even Mother Earth herself – Down!
Mutiny & sabotage in defense of the Corporate Empire!

Capitalism is Socialism for the Oligarchy at the top! Who, let me add, privatize their winnings at the Wall-Street, gaming tables, but as soon as the excrement hits the proverbial, circulating receptacle; by design or otherwise, they bail, socializing their losses. How grand…the party of me, myself and I.
The preamble to the Constitution implies a family structure: of, for and by the people. Consider the fact that this Instrument was drafted long before the term – Socialism – became horribly stigmatized by the bloody events of WWII, successfully propagandized by the Predatory Capitalists who succeeded in driving the concept into the ground (I say predatory, because that is the nature of the beast.)
Individually, ‘we’ as a family are GMO’d and screwed! And they know it.
I just wonder what Monsteranto executives eat?, I’d love to hear the explanation from these goons to their wives about what to buy and what not to buy when grocery shopping. They have to buy “something” as food, but maybe they are buying “organic”.
Anyway the elites have won again, or have they, at least the courts have gold stamped it, so therefore it must be ok…right?
I think these zombie movies are popular because they register with the viewer subconsciously and subliminally suggest that they, the human flesh eaters walk amongst us. I say the trail of those monsters leads back to the corporate cannibals from Monstersanto and their preferred victims are those whose diets avoid GMOs.
Well blow me over with a feather.
In any event, you should be avoiding cereal grains as they wreak overall havoc with our bodies, GMO or not. They are nutrient poor and calorie (aka sugar) rich.
Latest research in a long line of wailing sirens on what-used-to-known-as-wheat shows that it throttles the blood supply to the neocortex. Go figure.
if my read/listened-to sources are correct our bodies are not made to ingest grains at all unless they are first fermented (Jay Weidner is a good source on this topic)-
if one has a known wheat allergy barley flour is a good alternative (I’ve eaten pasteries made with barley flour and I noticed no taste difference from wheat in the crusts)but don’t know if barley would also throttle the blood supply to the neocortex- here in Germany barley flour is easily available in most grocery stores but don’t know if that’s the case in other countries-
I didn’t know Wiedner was grain-free, he’s a very interesting guy btw. Estimates are now that 10-15% of the US population no longer eats wheat, which is actually only the low end of those with gluten intolerance.
A recent study noted that nearly one in two people have some form of wheat sensitivity, which should give anyone pause; no other common foodstuff wreaks such havoc on the human body.
Barley is much better as you point out but all cereals are essentially carbohydrates, which is just a fancy word for sugar, which of course is very bad if you eat too much. My carb weakness is potatoes; I can pass up the bakery but not french fries!
Best to you–
Unfortunately contamination is the real aim of this court circus as I wrote days before the Filipino’s are growing Golden Rico GMO in greenhouses. The Agribusiness plan is to pollute our food and patient the seeds and reduce us in more ways than one to their slaves. On their future Latifundium’s we will wish for serfdom at least under that our masters owe us some things in return for our labors.
But taking advantage of the system is how great wealth is acquired. And those advantages come at other parties expense.
And “common good”. Why’s that a goal? That sounds like socialism.
