Show Notes From IKTV 502 - 21 September 2012

============================

Los Angeles Times:
http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-boy-scouts-files-20120916,0,6937684.story

The details are contained in the organization's confidential "perversion files," a blacklist of alleged molesters, that
the Scouts have used internally since 1919. Scouts' lawyers around the country have been fighting in court to keep the files
from public view.

As The Times reported in August, the blacklist often didn't work: Men expelled for alleged abuses slipped back into the
program, only to be accused of molesting again. Now, a more extensive review has shown that Scouts sometimes abetted
molesters by keeping allegations under wraps.

In the majority of cases, the Scouts learned of alleged abuse after it had been reported to authorities. But in more than
500 instances, the Scouts learned about it from boys, parents, staff members or anonymous tips.
There is no indication the Scouts took the matter to law enforcement.

Romney vs. the 47%

http://andrewsullivan.thedailybeast.com/2012/09/romney-unplugged-reax.html

* polyorchnid octopunch
* Kingston, Ontario, Canada
The really big takeaway from this is that people must remember that he was telling the crowd what they wanted to hear. It's
not just Romney; it's the US business elites as a whole that think like this. They actually believe their own press about
themselves.

this is the whole "mendicants" Mark Twain passage -- Romney's Bain Capital gets bailed out and he simultaneously hates
welfare recipients
without being a giant hypocrite who is perpetrating a class war on the poor, he cannot have it both ways on corporate welfare

oh, speaking of Repub Gov.s who lose, the Gov. Scott Walker Wisconsin anti-labor law was just overturned, but that was not
covered by any media

http://labornotes.org/blogs/2012/09/wisconsin-anti-union-bill-overturned-court

People are paying attention to the Hegelian Dialectic in action nowadays -- You cannot get away with creating a crisis
and then attempting to "solve" it by attacking the victims of the crisis -- all so you can make more money off privatization

GMOs

tell story of what it was like in the 1970s
Well, HOW did we that LET THAT happen?!? Who Knows? Agribusiness....
there may have been a little less of a choice than today, but we did not starve

some accuse others of wanting a completely dependent society
independent food production was the way of things
a false choice is one made of exclusively GM Food

hybridization has been long since used, but that is not GM, hyb is cross-pollenation
agribusiness has been taking over small farms in US
now it is GMO crops taking over the world
not because they are better, but because of companies like Monsanto (90%), Novartis, Syngenta
seed supply + GM + pesticide co.s for market share, profits -- how it is done w/ gold gun
US (75M acres), Argentina, Canada, China produce most GM crops (109M acres) in 2000 -- 395M acres in 2011 now in 29
countries, Brazil & India in top 5,
Paraguay, Pakistan, South Africa & Uraguay round out top 10 -- all 29 are 10% of total agriculture produced acc. to USA
Today

A 94-fold increase in hectarage from 1.7 million hectares in 1996 to 160 million hectares in 2011 makes biotech crops the
fastest adopted crop technology in the history of modern agriculture.
Precautionary Principle is what we normally use to determine food safety
stuff could be an allergen, and EPA & FDA dropped the ball, at the request of M. et al. -- deregulation or self-regulation in
action

corn (corn and canola oil), alfalfa, soybeans (soy, soy lectin),
sugar beets (sugar other than pure cane sugar), papayas, cotton (cotton seed oil),
yellow squash, and some kinds of non-organic Golden Rice
see the list on the website

GMO crops for the last 10yrs have been taking over the world
because of companies like Monsanto using Bush cycle to promote industry in US
idea stated by M. is to produce better food, use fewer chemicals, feed more people using less land, cost farmers less -- all
are false

GMOs untested in US in their entirety, FDA under James Maryanski had Michael Taylor write the policy
Michael Taylor was laywer for M. before writing policy, then M. VP after; now FDA is run by Michael Taylor under Obama
Taylor / FDA made a Principle of Substantial Equivalence, where GMO somehow = non-GMO
and food additives must be approved by FDA, but GMO foods require absolutely no testing

using US pressure on rest of world to promote to world
using patents on life to make a profit, would rather kill 10K in Anniston, GA than "lose one dollar in profit"
once no one can get non-GM seed, Monsanto can ask any $$$$$ for their "product",
thus causing wars, mass starvation and mass death, like in GA Guidestones >500M

History of Monsanto:
chemical co started over 100YA - still is a chemical co
started by Knights of Malta, Illuminati group, by John Francis Queeny, CWPF of JP Morgan (US Steel)
made Saccharin, DDT, agent orange, aspartame (NutraSweet), PCBs, RoundUp, BT Toxin, Celebrex, now 2,4-D
had a terrible environmental history, lots of dumping, superfunds, human guinea pigs
many coverups and bribes, false advertising, faked scientific reports and data,
data manipulation and suppression, litigious bullying against farmers & other professionals (Percy Schmeiser, farmer),
PR tricks and "muddying the waters" about the dangers of GM foods

could not pass health and environmental safety testing on any of their products
thank god for Reagan & Bush w/ deregulation, Clinton did nothing to help,
Dumbya allowed even more, and Obama appointed the VP to the FDA
M. now owns most GMO-producing co.s, outside China, a virtual monopoly
therefore stopping M. will effectively stop GMOs in US

Problems with GM:
transgenics = genetic contamination
unpredicability (in DNA and in yield), genetic instability, spontaneous mutation
carcinogens & tumors, also causes diabetes, hepatitis
rapid communication of genetic pollution is inevitable
"terminator" seeds = cross-polinate and kill other non-GMO crops, making them infertile
increase in use of water for irrigation of all GM crops -- maybe we can't do it better!

In Use now:
RoundUp: herbicide, not quite agent orange
BT Toxin: how this works as insecticide, BT is Bacillus thuringiensis, a naturally occuring bacterium which is found OUTSIDE
the plant in soil
BT & RU cause soil infertility by soil decay from plant roots in soil, and cause resistance in insects & weeds
GMO resistance to RoundUp and BT: if you were a weed, and you get this mixed in w/ your DNA, you'd be resistent to RoundUp?
no.
Syngenta Crop Protection, Inc. (not M.!) is producing Atrazine, a new herbicide for GM crops -- this leasds to birth defects,
water contamination, cancer, endocrine disruption, human infertility in men & women, hermaphrodite frogs, banned in EU

3 big ones:
corn: contamination in MX - Oxaca, where corn originates, increasing mutations in GMO corm plants

cotton: suicides in India among farmers 1000s/yr, BT Toxin actually reduces yield and farmers still have to spray
insecticide, urban drought,
farmers cannot get normal seed and M. charges four times the price to BT Toxing GMO seed, rashes & odd infections for those
who come into contact
loss of farmers, increase in poverty, loss of rural economy, increase in urban poverty, loss of urban economy

soy: poverty and loss of indigenous lands in S.America, rashes & odd infections for those who come into contact, loss of
wildlife from BT Toxin spray
loss of farmers, increase in poverty, loss of rural economy, increase in urban poverty, loss of urban economy

other foods:
sugar beets: you will have BT+RR unless you get pure cane sugar
yellow squash: only buy organic, try a farmers market -- but ask the farmer!
Golden Rice: was attempted, GM added Vitamin A, now not so much, why we need labeling, watch out from China
tomatoes: only from China -- LABELLING! 83% of US want food labeled -- 0% of corporations want labeling

alfalfa: used by farmers as feedstock, concentrates GMO components into meat which is then fed to humans
used in chicken, pork, beef, lamb, mutton, pretty much any other land-roving animal, now if you eat meat that is not
organically fed,
you are eating concentrated BT Toxin and RoundUp resistant weed genes

rBGH: antibiotics and growth hormone in Milk for human consumption

see the list on the website

= = TAKE CALLS = =

Future in 2,4-D:
Roudup (herbicide) and BT Toxin (insecticide) are developing resistance in weeds and pests,
so now M. wants to make 2-4,D to replace both -- if you make something which KILLS EVERYTHING
then exactly what do you suppose it will do to humans

Future in wheat:
people are resisting this since it would be fed directly to them
EU may ban US produced wheat, bankrupting many US farmers
M. should quit while it is "ahead"

Future in apples: they do not brown
again, this needs to be resisted!

Future in salmon:
(not M.!) AquaBounty wants to make a franeknfish which would grow faster than non-GMO salmon
this fish would eventually escape into the wild and cross-populate with non-GMO salmon
more agressive fish, all non-GMO salmon would become extinct, salmon would cause cancer
AQB is attempting to make FF sterile, but again, this will act like the terminator seed, killing all salmon

Future in US law:
SB510: FDA Food Satety and Modernization Act
no FDA/EPA regulations or oversight of GMOs, will essentially mandate ("encourage") GMOs to be added to foods,
will require organic farmers to submit to a litany of overburdensome regulations
regarding the supposed “safety” of their foods which have been perfectly safe for millennia
will actually outright prohibit anyone from growing their own food in their own garden -- you grow food, you go to jail.
we need to get its sponsors and supporters out of office in November

= = TAKE CALLS? = =

Solutions:

MARKET FORCES:
stopping M. will effectively stop GMOs in US & most of the world outside China
Monsanto is a publicly traded company (MON.N); do not invest or pull your investments
market volatility is putting smaller farmers out of business -- end volatility by stabilizing monetary supply, stabilizing
food stocks,
eating less meat, eliminating speculative trading on food markets, supporting and buying from small farms, and reducing
climate change
Market valuation of GM crops is falling due to untestedness and suseptability -- higher value on non-GM foods
GMO Corn should only be used to produce biofuels, but really, we should use algal oil (or other biomass) so we simultaneously
sequester carbon
companies are forcing small farmers in India and Africa off their land so it can be bought cheap to be used to produce corn
for biofuels -- this must end,
let small farmers stay on the land and perhaps produce corn for biofuels, but do not create false price drops or seed price
spikes
End privitization of life and seeds -- this should accompany a constitutional amendment to state that corporations are not
people, etc.
MADE IN USA should apply to foods, but better, "made locally" should also be labeled

DO NOT BUY IN: buy local and organic, do not use or buy RoudUp for your garden
using organic gardening sequesters carbon (negative carbon footprint),
where using pesticides is a massively positive carbon footprint
SUPPORT LABELING: call to people in CA to support Prop 37 -- being outspent 10 to 1
WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT BUY:
corn (corn and canola oil), alfalfa, soybeans (soy, soy lectin),
sugar beets (sugar other than pure cane sugar), papayas, cotton (cotton seed oil),
yellow squash, and some kinds of non-organic Golden Rice

= = TAKE CALLS = =

ALSO SOLUTIONS:
not all things that are bad for you are GMOs, there are non-GM Foods which you should not eat
aspartame, MSG, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, High Fructose Corn Syrup (also GMO now), Red #5, Red #40,
lard, saturated fat, polyunsaturated fat, excess salt, most fish now live in polluted waters (and are overfished),
any processed food should naturally be treated with suspicion for a variety of reasons
get your sugars from fruits and eat natural foods

water is scarce, oil is used for transport, packaging, pesticides, carbon output needs to be negative
aquaponics and vertical farming can be done in cities now -- carbon negative food co-ops
buy local, unprocessed foods -- uses less oil & carbon to get it to you
eat seasonal foods -- you do not have to have it travel half way around the world to reach your plate
eat organic, not GMO at all unless you want your DNA scrambled
use no chemical (only organic) fertilizers -- organic fertilizers actually sequester carbon (they are carbno-negative)!
use no pesticides ever -- put M. out of business and use less oil and carbon
use food waste as energy production and fertilizer
buy at a local farmers' market (or local farm if you can) and bring your own cloth bag -- use less oil and carbon, support
local farmers
support local seed exchanges, even better yet, grow your own garden, and resist the passage of the FDA Food Safety and
Moderzaniiton Act
do not eat meat -- it takes 100 times the amount of land and water to produce an amount of meat equal to the same amt of
vegetables, and meat farming costs 1/5 the carbon output of the planet

AND REMEMBER, JUST SAY NO! TO GMO!!!

That's it, check the website, see you on October 19th for the 2012 Election Special!

= = READ FROM WEBPAGE: = =

It has been shown that when GM plants grown with these BT-Toxin-infused genes are consumed by some animals, the bacteria in
those animals’ stomachs get their DNA altered so that they become miniature BT-Toxin factories. Yes, that’s pretty gross,
right?

So it is conceivable that if you eat enough, say, GM corn chips, your stomach bacteria will start producing BT-Toxin, causing
your stomach to explode, just like the insects. This will cause a very painful, and very certain death. Maybe somebody at
Monsanto really has it in for everyone who eats their GM seeds, actually. Just as an aside, there were several Monsanto
scientists who, having learned from their research the effects of BT-Toxin in the feeds which were then fed to cows, stopped
buying non-organic beef and milk altogether, and one even went so far as to buy his own milk cow.

Now, it should be noted that they did have some help, from the inside.

From Wikipedia:

* Justice Clarence Thomas worked as an attorney for Monsanto in the 1970s. Justice Thomas wrote the majority opinion in
the 2001 Supreme Court decision J. E. M. Ag Supply, Inc. v. Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Inc. which found that “newly
developed plant breeds are patentable under the general utility patent laws of the United States.” This case benefited all
companies which profit from genetically modified crops, of which Monsanto is the largest.
* Michael R. Taylor was an assistant to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) commissioner before he left to work for a
law firm on gaining FDA approval of Monsanto’s artificial growth hormone in the 1980s. Taylor then became deputy
commissioner of the FDA from 1991 to 1994. After he went back to Monsanto to become Vice President for Public Policy, Taylor
was later re-appointed to the FDA in August 2009 by President Barack Obama.
* Dr. Michael A. Friedman was a deputy commissioner of the FDA before he was hired as a senior vice president of
Monsanto.
* Linda J. Fisher was an assistant administrator at the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) before she
was a vice president at Monsanto from 1995 to 2000. In 2001, Fisher became the deputy administrator of the EPA.
* Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was chairman and chief executive officer of G. D. Searle & Co., which
Monsanto purchased in 1985. Rumsfeld personally made at least $12 million USD from the transaction.

One would wonder why the Republicans wanted to get rid of the EPA under Dubya, when their corporate cronies were actually
running it, at least from afar, and mostly from the inside.

Not only this, but Michael Taylor is currently heading the FDA and has been appointed Food Czar by none other than Obama.
With Taylor leading the FDA, giving the FDA more money will not help unless all vestiges of Monsanto are removed from
government. Taylor will undoubtedly just continue to green light all Monsanto foods, without regard to the health and safety
of the people who are eating the food.

And as for the poor who live on USDA subsidies? Well, just talk about shoving it down their throats….

To achieve the Truth, Transparency & Trust which are required of the FDA, Taylor must go, along with Obama, and we must
replace the void with real leadership who have actual respect, and not this apparent disdain, for We The People.

          UNDER THE RADAR, AS YOU, AS I, DO YOU SEE, THEN?

“For I have sworn upon the altar of god, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man. But this is all they have to fear from me”
  -- Thomas Jefferson

            UNDER THE RADAR, AS YOU, AS I, WILL YOU GAIN, THEN?

“"And what does it amount to?" said Satan, with his evil chuckle.  "Nothing at all.  You gain nothing; you always come out where you went in.  For a million years the race has gone on monotonously propagating itself and monotonously reperforming this dull nonsense--to what end?  No wisdom can guess!  Who gets a profit out of it?
"Nobody but a parcel of usurping little monarchs and nobilities who despise you; would feel defiled if you touched them; would shut the door in your face if you proposed to call; whom you slave for, fight for, die for, and are not ashamed of it, but proud; whose existence is a perpetual insult to you and you are afraid to resent it; who are mendicants supported by your alms, yet assume toward you the airs of benefactor toward beggar; who address you in the language of master to slave, and are answered in in the language of slave to master; who are worshiped by you with your mouth, while in your heart -- if you have one -- you despise yourselves for it.
"The first man was hypocrite and a coward, qualities which have not yet failed in his line; it is the foundation upon which all civilizations have been built.  Drink to their perpetuation!  Drink to their augmentation!  Drink to--" Then he saw by our faces how much we were hurt, and he cut his sentence short and stopped chuckling.”

  -- Samuel Langhorne Clemens, from "The Mysterious Stranger"

            UNDER THE RADAR, AS YOU, AS I, WILL YOU DO, NOW?

“I have lived perfectly well within this society; why cannot these oliogarchs and same misanthropes do as such then?  It is not because of any particular behavior for one sociological manner; rather it is solely caused by the lack of means and those resources to the great many which are foisted particularly by those which do not lack the same.  We have all faced the serpect sick and we know what it is, who it is and where it is, moreover, we all know what is better.  The question we need to ask these days is whether we are able to appreciate this and contribute.  Perhaps more pressing is that we must now, please keep track of each others' whereabouts: regardless of the presence of GITMO DELTA-4, we must assume that we all oblige to perform in our best.  While the shame of our collective nod to the perpetuation of subjugation and torture still happens, it needs to stop immediately, so this next becomes the most important.  The place in this world bears no more space for those ideologues of bigotry nor hatred.  The ancient thought that a betterment of one family or race or strain is somehow purity, that is now obviously not only quaint, but incorrect and patently obtuse and averse from reality.  The old lines are no longer to be sanely held.  We shall not now and ought not to ever more be alone.  I do not want to be this, only in, that only I am this; it is necessary this entire world needs to share that this immutable truth must be known, because, we all of everyone, we do collectively hold the highest and so care about our future, even when it is not our own.  If you will pick any one of the 3600 to stop, please pick ALL OF THEM and make EVERYONE THE CAUSE.”
  -- Michael Oatman  --  19 December 2019
