Today, I had an especially astute friend alert me to the propaganda technique of FUD or “fear, uncertainly, and doubt” as the technique particularly applied to the No on 37 campaign in California. The easily manipulated citizens (“victims” would be a better word) of the Central Valley are apparently quite susceptible to this crude, ancient, but still effective propaganda technique.

The State of Washington and other states and communities need to be on the lookout for any and all propaganda on behalf of Monsanto.

I have a question.

Has anyone ever had a strange kind of scalp itching immediately after consuming certain strains of rice? I am wondering if this apparent allergic response is common, is caused by GMO rice, or is just my own immune system. I have never experienced such a reaction until quite recently.

It’s too bad there are so few real journalists and so few truly great scientists (if any) in California who have the knowledge, backbone and integrity to tell the truth about how deadly GMO technology really is.

California may no longer be the vanguard it once was. California’s newspapers, fraudulent academics, “scientists,” and “leaders” completely failed us all.

But I am not giving up on my beloved California quite yet! So many wonderful people who worked so hard and sacrificed much time and money for this cause did raise awareness. Let’s work hard, educate, and network all across the nation with others. Let’s study the techniques Monsanto, its PR firms, academic shills, internet shills use to manipulate people. Let’s be on the lookout for corporate infiltration and propaganda and disclose our findings.

The biotech world is more bizarre than any science fiction could ever be, isn’t it? It’s time to put biotech in its place.

While I acknowledge that the legal system of the United States is almost completely broken (with few exceptions, the system benefits, above all, the rich and powerful) impersonation and misrepresentation must be prosecuted.

Who and what are behind these alleged activities and why isn’t the Attorney General (or Attorney Generals) pursuing these activities more aggressively if at all?

If Proposition 37 doesn’t clear this time, perhaps “Proposition 37.2” will.

We don’t give up and won’t give up; our kids are too important.

“For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled.”

Did Monsanto ever apologize for all the deformed children it helped create? Did Monsanto ever apologize for all the damage created by Agent Orange? I think I know the answer.

GMOs could be worse, much worse, than Agent Orange.

We will never give up fighting for our “food freedom,” will we people?

Congratulations to the few newspapers who have the integrity to support the people of California. One lesson to learn from all of this: cancel your subscriptions to California syndicated newspapers if at all possible! Syndicated newspapers as they currently exist are largely obsolete relics at best and fraudulent at worst. The latter appears to be the norm in California.

I feel that communities should publicly own and publish their own local newspapers—the revenues going to the community and not to spineless, journalistically impotent corporate media empires.

Lead the way, California!
