Monsanto should be doused with agent orange. Not the people, just the building so no one wants to come back there. And all of their terminator seeds as well.

Sadly, those who work there really believe that dioxin /agent O and all their other biotechnologies are just wonderful. I see this all the time..even in the pharmaceutical industry with drug reps who actually believe their drugs are safe despite the warnings. If they believed differently, than they would not have a job or want that job- probably why they get paid so much! After all, there really isn't any other incentive to do that kind of work unless you're greedy.

It's been proven that Dioxin as well as other similar toxins are responsible for diabetes and neurological diseases. The gov't sprayed the surrounding foliage along the mountain roads next to my home with agent orange quite a few times during the 70's ( cheaper than mowing) It's truly orange colored. I had to bring all my animals indoors, including my horses, ducks and geese because an orange film would be on everything including my pond. At the time I did not know how dangerous it was even though I suspected it was bad for our health. I'll bet that the land on that mountain is so toxic and still contaminated to this day and I doubt that the newcomers even know. And to think that all that run-off ends up in the Shenandoah River.

Forgot about that...didn't they actually create agent orange?

Ya, they did. Also created round up, which we are all ingesting now.

Up until just a couple of years ago, my local ( VA Tech) extension agent told everyone that Roundup was a safe organic weed killer. After he retired, he changed his story. I never believed that Roundup was safe and was criticized often for advising against it's use. When corp sponsors like Monsanto subsidize academia, the result is of course, millions of mindless graduates passively working on their behalf.

Exactly, check out the companies that are in charge of education in organizations like, for instance ALEC.
