Hungary Throws Out Monsanto AND The IMF | Finance



Quote:
Almost 1000 acres of maize found to have been grown with genetically modified seeds have been destroyed throughout Hungary deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development Lajos Bognar said. The GMO maize has been ploughed under, said Lajos Bognar, but pollen has not spread from the maize, he added.

The United States is threatening nations who oppose Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) crops with military-style trade wars, according to information obtained and released by the organization WikiLeaks. Nations like France, which have moved to ban one of Monsanto’s GM corn varieties, were requested to be ‘penalized’ by the United States for opposing Monsanto and genetically modified foods. The information reveals just how deep Monsanto’s roots have penetrated key positions within the United States government, with the cables reporting that many U.S. diplomats work directly for Monsanto.

Good for Hungary. Now watch the Obama administration try to browbeat Hungary into submission.

Obama's cabinet member is not too happy about this decision. But then again, I'm sure they're not happy that Hungary erected a statue of Reagan in Budapest either.

They need to just execute or deport all of the socialists and nationalists for nearly 100 years of hell they put their country through. Not really serious of course about executions but they seriously need to marginalize these idiots.

Many Hungarians I know would pay to **** on Woodrow Wilson's grave. It would bring some badly needed revenue to this country to make that an offering.

Good for Hungary!
If California votes for labelling this November, that will be a huge blow to GMO. There is a lot of corporate money flowing into this state to defeat it. People want choice and they will do everything they can do deny us. Watch closely, this proposition is vital.
This is one time when the liberals and conservatives can come together.

It would make the hair on the back of your neck rise if you did any serious research into Monsanto. And OUR government is in bed with them.

More than in bed with them; Monsanto practically runs the FDA.
