Time is runnig out

Greetings All.
The threat of Monsanto GM crops is looming in our immediate future. This company already has control over 80% of the corn and 90% of the soy grown in the world. When you add to that the cross contamination effect onto otherwise , organic farms , it is nearing 100 %. The time to act is now. We cannot wait for the complete take over of the entire food chain by Monsanto to be our incentive to act.
There are many things in our lives that we could live without. Corn and Soy are 2 of these things. WE need to organize and national boycott of all corn and soy products . Monsanto is destroying the the very foundation of our lives by altering the genetics of the food we eat. Soon there will be no organic food available at all because they are fast moving in new directions and taking over other crops too, such as wheat and alfalfa. There is only one way to stop them and that is to take their money away.
The following article discusses the strong arm tactics used by Monsanto in order to gain more control over our food chain. It is criminal,, unconstitutional and down right disgusting what these people are willing to do in order to accomplish their agenda. Please read the following article and forward it to your friends and family. Share this link with others and invite people to join this action network. If we don't take action now , Monsanto will continue to grow and flourish in the very fields where our most basic needs are met. Our food supply is in peril and Monsanto is the major cause of this. They have got to be stopped now.

"Confidential contracts detailing Monsanto Co.'s business practices reveal how the world's biggest seed developer is squeezing competitors, controlling smaller seed companies and protecting its dominance over the multibillion-dollar market for genetically altered crops, an Associated Press investigation has found.

With Monsanto's patented genes being inserted into roughly 95 percent of all soybeans and 80 percent of all corn grown in the U.S., the company also is using its wide reach to control the ability of new biotech firms to get wide distribution for their products, according to a review of several Monsanto licensing agreements and dozens of interviews with seed industry participants, agriculture and legal experts.

Declining competition in the seed business could lead to price hikes that ripple out to every family's dinner table. That's because the corn flakes you had for breakfast, soda you drank at lunch and beef stew you ate for dinner likely were produced from crops grown with Monsanto's patented genes. "
