Monday Moaning

Whoops… It’s Tuesday already.

Where’d Monday go?

What happened to Monday?

I have a feeling it’s going to be one of those weeks.

Still, we can have a Tuesday Moaning over coffee.

Food

We need it, the world is short of it. Companies and corporations are trying to get rich from it, and they don’t care if it’s healthy or not, just as long as the money rolls in.

They experiment with it; GMOs and the like, they try and control or dominate the market and nobody bleats or raises an eyebrow.

Nearly all the grain in the world is already compromised. I read yesterday of a farmer whose crop was banned because it was contaminated with GMOs, he was exporting to a country that, wisely, doesn’t accept them.

We read about the rush for biofuels creating shortages of the same plants that were once a food crop.

They want to GMOise or farm salmon, then shit happens…

cbcThis goes against nature. Nature has it’s protections in place and along comes man and tries to change it.

It won’t be too far in the future when all we can get is GMOised products. The thing that concerns me is that we don’t yet know what GMOs do to us and government organisations are being bought and sold on the idea that this is necessary in order to overcome the global shortages.

The companies and corporations bulldoze ahead, regardless; as long as there is a profit rainbow ahead. The governments don’t say boo, they don’t want to lose their funding from these bastards; they don’t care about you, their bottom line is money.

We, the people, need to stand up to this crap. Hurt these companies where it hurts most, the pocket.

We need to demand GMO labeling, so that we can make informed choices when we buy.

We need to educate the populace, who are kept in the dark through lack of information, or biased advertising.

We, the people have become sheep, we ‘just follow’ the flock, it doesn’t matter if we are pandering to the corporate wolves.

It has to stop!

And only you can stop it.

  1. The really crazy thing is that we waste so much food! Was it you who posted on your blog about the amount of food that gets wasted? Almost half the world’s food gets thrown away – http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/jan/10/half-world-food-waste

  2. This is a UK based scheme, but I’m sure there are others around the world, sounds like a good idea to me, why should food be so damn perfect to look at, as long as it’s edible.

    • >Shana, excellent link, thank you. Last night, I had a tomato with a large blemish, it was from my own crop, cutting the blemish out it made wonderful cream cheese, tomato and parsley sandwiches for supper, it would never have passed ‘cosmetic’ guidelines.

  3. Yes, the power is with the individual as a so-called consumer to stop GM in its tracks.

    • >Alex, the problem is that people are told so many lies by the perpetrators and governments that they don’t know how to react.

      I am fully in favour of these people being accountable whether in office or out. Hang them if they’re wrong; that’d make them tell the truth, right after the first hanging.
