NOW the farmer has to go back to Monsanto every year to buy MORE seeds.
there is a very, VERY easy solution to this horrific conundrum you have invented:

Spoiler
don't buy monsanto seeds

#34. And anyone that believes the article from OP is also believing those that falsify. Perhaps the cancel each other out.

Hired them, not bought them, doesn't matter, this stinks. We don't know what this collaboration has done beyond 2009, but there is every reason to believe they are still working together. Gates, eugenecist, owns 90% of the market share of Monsanto, which makes for a truly evil partnership.

Hired by” is not the same as “was bought by”.
“…Black added that Total Intelligence ‘would develop into acting as intel arm of Monsanto.”
‘Black also noted that Monsanto was concerned about animal rights activists and that they discussed how Blackwater ‘could have our person(s) actually join [activist] group(s) legally.’ Black wrote that initial payments to Total Intelligence would be paid out of Monsanto’s ‘generous protection budget’ but would eventually become a line item in the company’s annual budget. He estimated the potential payments to Total Intelligence at between $100,000 and $500,000. According to documents, Monsanto paid Total Intelligence $127,000 in 2008 and $105,000 in 2009.”
Xe is a mutli-million dollar organization.

You play with words here. This company is changing it's name as fast as it can to avoid the political/legal fall out from it's past deeds.

This mercenary company is, and always will be, Blackwater to the public.....armed hired criminals with military weapons.

To kill all those that won't eat their GM food without a fight!

Are you kidding me, they are the corporate machine. Now, they'll have their own standing army to enforce their will.

If it isn't true, at some point it will be.

If you want to buy some hierloom seeds for a big-ole victory garden then there are a couple hundred places I will gladly direct you too.

However, from the sounds of it you've never really been around farms or gardening.
Hopefully, you aren't equating traditional hybrids with GMs.

This is a problem with corps. They can hide behind other corps, change names and not be responsible.

The original OP actually referred to the intelligence gathering arm and personal emails.

However, from the article you posted It states both were bought via a shell company and that tracing it is difficult. This is, as I mentioned a problem with corps.

Did you hear about the beekeeper in Illinois? He had bred bees that were resistant to gmo. The State confiscated his bees and killed his queens.
Do you have a link to this? My Grandfather was a professional bee keeper and honey maker. If this is true, and I don't doubt it for a minute, there should be a greater outcry.
