This was an online conversation I had quite awhile ago. A certain user posted it here while I was away from my computer. I'm leaving it up simply becaue otherwise there probably wouldnt't be anything else here.

Naspime says:
monsanto has to be just about one of the worst companies in the world (well there's quite a few vieing for that title)

Petey says:
why?

Naspime says:
first of all their whole gmo policies

Petey says:
what?

Naspime says:
are you not aware of the evils of the monsanto coroporation???????

Petey says:
i guess not.

Naspime says:
well just today there was an article in the dailiy news about how they pcbs near an alabama town for nearly forty decades at alarming levels

Petey says:
oh, i see.

Naspime says:
but that's just they're old record

Naspime says:
today they're at the forfront as a "life-sciences" company

Naspime says:
here's the article (from the washington post):

Naspime says:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A46648-2001Dec31.html

Naspime says:
and of course they're modern day monopoly and how they've manipulated the fda

Naspime says:
...I'll summarize

Naspime says:
monsanto makes a strong pesticide it will kill any bad insects or other pests

Naspime says:
In fact it's so strong it'll even kill many plants

Naspime says:
so monsanto engineers a strain of first soy resistant to their pesticide...they play washington and they don't need fda approval (it's woefully undertested)

Naspime says:
they license the seeds to farmers (you have to buy new seeds every year, can't replant, also have 800 number spy on your fellow farmer)

Naspime says:
and now of course they sell all sorts of crops

Naspime says:
but they've found that these gmo plants aren't neccessarily safe for the enviroment and screw w/ the ecology, plus the pesticides are dangerous

Petey says:
hmmm.

Naspime says:
and also there's some evidence that suggests these crops may be unhealthy to eat

Naspime says:
of course monsanto has covered a great deal of this evidence up

Petey says:
Alex, are you drunk?

Naspime says:
just read the washington post article (if you ahven't already)

Naspime says:
no...just odin and I were talking about it for a while today

Petey says:
oh.

Naspime says:
and this isn't some vast conspiracy...it's appeared in motherjones

Naspime says:
Everyone should know the truth about monsanto

Naspime says:
(as well as all the other bad industries...oil and such)

Naspime says:
this is why gmos are banned in europe

Naspime says:
I just noticed on wired news some organic farmers in canada are suing monsanto along w/ aventis

Petey says:
could you proofread an essay for me quick?

Naspime says:
for gress? I could

Naspime says:
shit I haven't written any

Naspime says:
actually I'm supposed to get off the computer, but I can tomorrow

Petey says:
oh, okay.
