Thanks for the post.

"An entire way of life is rapidly dying right in front of our eyes. The family farm is being systematically wiped out of existence in America, and big agribusiness and the federal government both have blood all over their hands. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the number of farms in the United States has fallen from about 6.8 million in 1935 to only about 2 million today." http://www.blacklistednews.com/The_Family_Farm_Is_Being_Systematically_Wiped_Out_Of_Existence_In_America/22684/0/38/38/Y/M.html

Do you know how many Big Agri execs are in politics? Did you know Ashcroft(Former AG) has ownership in a seed company as well and has taken several family farms after suing them for seed patent infringement due to cross pollination? These patented seeds have been found growing on the side of the road and some end up on the roadside edge of farms, and this is enough to take away family farms and assimilate them into Big Agri.

Sounds like a class action law suit for the small/independent farmer to band together and pursue. Sue the GMO's for not containing their franken food crops for contaminating clean fields and roadways with tainted/killer produce.

Did that bushel of corn really poison a family?

BTW - have you seen my knife? I set it down next to this row of carrots - and - now its gone.
