What more do we need to know???
“Far from being ‘magic seeds’, GM pest-proof ‘breeds’ of cotton have been devastated by bollworms, a voracious parasite.
Nor were the farmers told that these seeds require double the amount of water. This has proved a matter of life and death.
With rains failing for the past two years, many GM crops have simply withered and died, leaving the farmers with crippling debts and no means of paying them off.
Having taken loans from traditional money lenders at extortionate rates, hundreds of thousands of small farmers have faced losing their land as the expensive seeds fail, while those who could struggle on faced a fresh crisis.
When crops failed in the past, farmers could still save seeds and replant them the following year.
But with GM seeds they cannot do this. That’s because GM seeds contain so- called ‘terminator technology’, meaning that they have been genetically modified so that the resulting crops do not produce viable seeds of their own.
As a result, farmers have to buy new seeds each year at the same punitive prices. For some, that means the difference between life and death.”

There’s this phase, the one that I’m in, of being between sober and drunk;
the phase where you’re just feeling it, it feels good; it also feels slightly crappy; recklessness has awoken, and you want more.
This is the precipitous phase before too much.
All the world’s beauty and all the world’s ills are pulling you into their undertow. Another drink and you won’t feel any of it anymore;
Another drink, and you’ll be staggering.
How to navigate this phase?
Sloooooooow down, even though you don’t want to.
Drink some water, even though you don’t want to.
The next drink with alcoholic content might be your last drink of the rollicking fun evening you’re having right now.
It’s hard to navigate these things when you’re in this phase, because as I already mentioned, you’re feeling reckless.
But if you don’t want to waste some good, and potentially expensive alcohol,
Slow Down Now.
Savor it, wallow in it, maintain…
Okay, it’s 2011;
How the hell can we still be hatin’ on Black Folks???
Just because they’re BROWN!!!???? HELLLOOOOOO?????
And this business about not hiring people if they have a past misdemeanor? (which especially effects those of our citizens who get overwhelmingly picked on):
Damn, do you realize a person can get a misdemeanor for answering back under the wrong circumstances? (well, don’t want no one answering back y’all!) Or for smoking a joint on the wrong street? A JOINT????
PLEASE!!! What do you call a lying cheating white person who makes a fortune on Wall Street while ripping off all kinds of poor folks???
What do you call rich people who buy their ways out of misdemeanors because they can?
What do you call SLUMLORD BASTARDS who charge a Fortune to poor people in lousy neighborhoods and don’t do shit, but sit fat and pretty far far away????
What kind of fascist rightwing coldhearted greedy f’ing place is America turning into??? Are we trying to catch up with the rightwing fascist trend happening elsewhere? (and I DON’T mean in Egypt!)
Or are we just slipping back into our Puritan/Slave owning/Robber Barons past?
