US Supreme Court Hands Monsanto Dominion Over Family and Organic Farmers

     "Fascism should rightly be called Corporatism, as it is the merger of corporate and government power."--Benito Mussolini.

     Americans barely noticed as the US Supreme Court moved us yet another giant step closer to fascism. The court upheld Monsanto's right to sue farmers for damages and infringement if and when Monsanto's GM seeds inadvertently contaminate the non-GM farmers fields!  In short, the court ruled that the non-GM farmers case, seeking protection from Monsanto's predatory lawsuits, was unnecessary since Monsanto, the court claimed, has promised not to sue in such cases.  In reality, Monsanto has already filed at least 140 lawsuits against farmers whose crops were contaminated by Monsanto's seeds and settled out of court more than 700 times!
