Kudos For Monsanto Company
I applaud Monsanto for their R and D. I would like to meet the head R and D man there and shake his hand for his drive and stick-to-it-ness to find solutions to feed the world. I have seen the animosity towards terminator and GM seeds, but I have also seen children dying of malnutrition and felt sick to my stomach as I knew they would not last more than a year like that. Malaria, or something would get them first. It was a sad day boarding that plane and thinking in 12 hours I would be back in the states and they would be living there and dying of some awful affliction. Not many opportunities there, not very fulfilled human lives really.
Some environmentalists, rural farmers are up in arms over the GM seeds and are using smear campaign tactics against Monsanto. There are so many seed companies, which are poised to take the market if Monsanto was to force this product onto a world market when in fact the world market did not desire it. Cargill is no little company and the world is not with out competition for seeds.
For Monsanto, GM Terminator seeds are one of their lines of seeds, I see by these public relations attacks and articles out in the world press that Monsanto has a small PR issue ahead. Yet simultaneously from a logical perspective the GM Terminator seeds make so much sense as we need to feed the world more efficiently. Please think on this, people are dying of malnutrition and GM seeds maybe part of the answer, lets work together on this concept. Who knows what we can accomplish with the help of this ongoing research.

Workmens Compensation Lawyers, Lets Raise Minimum Wage; No Lets Not, Say We Did, We Have
The debate to raise minimum wage in California is totally negated. The debate holds no weight because workmen's compensation rates are completely out of control there.
Environmentalists Say GM Seeds are Bad News
Environmentalists say GM Seeds are bad for the environment, dangerous to the security of the world's food supply and will cause millions to starve. Yet when one really looks at the debate none of those statements can be made in absolute truth.
Anyone Awake Out There?
As we reel from the news of the recent bombings in London, England, it is incumbent upon all of us to examine, seriously, why such attacks by Islamic Extremists are occurring. We cannot combat what we do not understand, let alone try to wage an effective war against such an insidious enemy.
The "Manchurian Candidate": Lee Harvey Oswald?
An American soldier is taken behind enemy lines and brainwashed as an unwitting assassin by communists in league with American political figures. This soldier then returns to the States to kill a presidential candidate as part of a political scheme to escalate and exploit Cold War tensions.
Illegal Aliens and Homeland Security; Rants from Lance 2003
Is it just me or are you concerned that illegal aliens were working on a nuclear submarine in San Diego? Is it just me or are you upset that 81,000 people come over the border in Laredo TX every day to shop and from there can go nearly anywhere if they time their travel correctly? Is it just me or are you concerned that we only have our borders secured in one direction, coming into the country? Is it just me or are you concerned about the two houses with tunnels from Mexico to the US with handrails and lighting and cement sides, roof and floor that was just found, but had been there for two decades? At least it was ADA Compliant?We harass our own people yet let things like this go by our so-called enforcement agencies. Government's job as outlined in the Constitution is to protect our people.
A Workable Alternative to Term Limits
The end of another election once again brings into focus the problem of Washington politicians raising money and running for re-election as soon as they get into office. Many citizens and various government-accountability advocacy groups have done little more than complain from time to time.
Israel Termed A 'Nuclear Power' By US Officials
In the last two weeks, two non-senior US officials indirectly called on Israel to start planning on cancelling its nuclear weapons programs. Even though they said this is not intended for 'the foreseeable future', their publicly terming Israel a nuclear power on a par with India and Pakistan might be a sign that the US perceives of nuclear issues as too serious to condone the double standards it employs freely on other issues.
The Transformation Of Political Science And The Rise In Crime Rates
The current field of political sciences is dominated by a multitude of ideas that have never in its history featured so prominently in this discipline. The general belief that it has lost its focus once and for all is from time to time counteracted by different opinions.
Governments Worst Agency
Everyone knows the United States Government often falls down in their duties. Although over all the country is great and for the most part seems to work, there are several agencies that get an "F" on their report cards from some who act as government watchdogs.
Wartime Prisoners and the Will to Fight; War is Hell, Let's Win Alright?
We learned some lessons in these last few wars. For instance: some of Saddam's Iraqi army personal may have given up or volunteered to give up to slow us down.
Medicade Scam; Worse than You Think
You are not going to believe what is going on in North Western Michigan; Check this scam out, typical health care fraud. There is a $3000 allowance per month if your child is on medicade because the parent is poor.
Technology and International Terrorism
Airlines do not allow cell phones on board, but they do allow AirCell a specialized new technology for in flight calls. AirCell's technology has been approved by the FCC because it uses a single regulated frequency.
Bosnia - An Economy in Search of a State
Bosnia-Herzegovina (heretofore "Bosnia") is an artificial polity with four, tangentially interacting, economies. Serbs, Croats and their nominal allies, the Bosniaks each maintain their own economy.
Transporting Troops in the Future
Currently when we transport troops we use large cargo planes or put all the troops onto airliners or charter large Boeing Jet Airliners to send them near the battlespace, but in the future we will be able to put them to sleep, pack them into small honeycomb spaces and transport 1000 or more troops in cargo container type modules. Sounds inhumane? It isn't, let me explain why.
Arrogance Of Terror
The man on the tape raised his hand, pointing a finger into the camera, his AK-47 raised at his side, punctuating every threat and accusation. He seemed consumed with the intense desire not only to declare his intentions, but earnest in his attempts to persuade his threatened audiences of their culpability in his group's future aggression upon them.
Steel Import Tariff Taxes Hurt Industry, Not Help Them
US Steel prices have cost franchisees in my company and our team thousands of extra dollars due to the import taxes, which were imposed. Let me tell everyone when they raised the cost of steel we were forced to seek to build the truck beds out of other materials, and once businesses do that many times they never go back and thus the steel industry is forever damaged.
Gasoline Prices Going Through the Roof
OH MAN!Here we go again. I guess now the "proof is in the pudding" and it is time for us to face reality.
Policemen in many US cities are taking their new authority over the terrorism issue way too seriously. They are using it as a reason to harass our citizenry.
Free Trade, Outsourcing, Protectionism and Reality Check
Recently on C-SPAN, there were two gentlemen debating free trade one from the CATO Institute for free trade. Yet he failed to mention the real problem, the lawyers, over regulation and government bureaucracy.
The Bush There Or Here Fallacy and the War in Iraq
Today we wish to examine a fallacy, or error in reasoning, which we have found springing up now and again in today's popular discourse about the so-called War On Terror. This one comes straight from the top -- well, not the VERY top -- but from Washington D.
