A University of Arkansas researcher has found genetically modified canola growing wild in Dakota -- but more than that, she found two different GM varieties had interbred to produce a completely new GM canola.

So one of their roundup ready plants can go wild and then spread into a different roundup ready crop field. You couldn't then use roundup to get rid of the unwanted one. ooops hehe

Whoever planted it there should be tracked down, prosecuted, and punished -- severely. The European model of "No Frankenfood" is bestr.

Whoever planted it would more likely be sued, charged with trademark infringement, and be required to pay a license fee and surrender the money they received for the crop.

Someone really has to stop pesky insects from cross-pollinating plants. They have absolutely no respect for patent laws.

Nothing like having weeds that are resistant to weed killers. Spray the field with extra weed killer...the crops wither and the new super weeds thrive.Crops that survive the onslaught of weed killers poison the people who eat 'em. .I smell a law suit brewing.

Someone should really get a class action suit going against bees and their ilk...

Ditto birds. They've got to stop transporting seed in their droppings. They'll have genetically altered crops growing all over the place. Make 'em wear diapers..Nature's way of seed dispersal can no longer be allowed.

Monsanto sues farmers who end up with a patented, unwanted gene in their fields....and Monsanto wins.. Judges have bats in their belfry. Monsanto ought to be suing birds and insects.. They probably wouldn't answer a subpeana. The agricultural patent laws, in all of their majesty, are nuts. Ditto some of the stuff being created and patented.

Monsanto has a suicide gene in some of their seed. They produce plants with viable pollen...and the seed produced by the plant is sterile. It's a way to assure people keep buying seed rather than saving some of their own production. If that cross-pollenates much, we'll have a dead, barren planet. Plants won't be able to reproduce. Bad for the weed-killer market. Nothing green left to kill..

Tax cheats stash $2 trillion overseas!

America's biggest companies are playing by their own set of rules. According to a recent report from two major watchdog organizations, our nation's Fortune 500 companies have $2.1 trillion dollars stashed in overseas tax havens.

To put that number in perspective, it's worth noting that the entire federal budget for 2015 was only about $3.8 trillion.
