Met libertarian and conservative farmers and learned an incredible amount about farming and nature and science, as well as about government violations against them and against us all. The other side of the fence is nothing like what we've been taught to assume but great people with immense decency.

Monsanto's dream bill, HR 875 HR 875 is a Monsanto driven bill introduced by Rosa DeLauro whose husband works for Monsanto. Michael Taylor, a Monsanto lawyer, waits in the wings to take control our food again, but this time it would be with frightening power over our farmers, our only protectors of our food. This article contains quotes to give only a small idea of what is at stake in stopping HR 875, a dream bill for Monsanto.

A solemn walk through HR 875 Food and Water Watch put out information on HR 875 to counter "myths" and "rumors" on the internet that the bill would criminalize organic farming and take over seeds. It gives no specifics to back up its "facts," so the following close up view of the bill and accompanying commentary offers the reader a chance to decide for themselves what is myth and what is fact.

During a world food crisis, Monsanto just raised the price of its corn seed $100 a bag. "A $100 price increase is a tremendous drain on rural America," said Fred Stokes, OCM's executive director. "Let's say a farmer in Iowa who farms 1,000 acres plants one of these expensive corn varieties next year. The gross increased cost is more than $40,000. Yet there's no scientific basis to justify this price hike. How can we let companies get away with this?" continued Stokes.
