FPR Blog 24: Monsanto Has To Be Exposed. Part 2 GMO Alert!

I said I would continue to write about Monsanto, but even I have to admit, I didn't think I'd start writing part 2 on the same day.

I've been at my work station, which is like 3 feet from the broadcast console. Yea, yea, I don't have a budget. Never really cared about money.

Anyway, I'm in the process of programming the station and I like to research and sometimes write while I do this.

It's a lot of instrumental electronic music so I'm not distracted by much singing...

So, I started running a search for products with GMOs, just to see how much information would pop up... Monsanto has like half the page of results, and they're telling the "truth" about GMOs.

FPR Blog 23: Monsanto has to be exposed. Part 1 No More GMO!

There's a lot of talk about organic, gluten free, sprayed agriculture and killer seeds.

Unfortunately not enough talk about Monsanto and GMOs. There's no mainstream coverage on the corporation and the chemicals they put in our food.

Before I go any further, let me just give you a little information about Monsanto.

The Monsanto Company is a publicly traded American multinational agrochemical and agricultural biotechnology corporation. Those words should not be in the same sentence... Chemicals and agriculture, aka Agrochemical, does not sound healthy to me.

FPR Blog 22: The Confederate Flag vs 50 stars and 13 bars.

So it's been reported that the federal government has told chain stores that they want them to stop selling the confederate flag.

I didn't know the government can just tell a store what they can or can't sell, but it's not like they're demanding ice cream be abolished.

I don't have mixed views on the issue of the confederate flag. To me it's a symbol of hate, but to others it represents what they believe America should be like.

I don't agree with how confederates would run this country and let's pray that day never comes. But, I do believe they have the right to speak and express their beliefs.

FPR Blog 21: We Will Win the War on Us, non-violently. Example, Supreme Court's Ruling on Gay Marriage.

There is no "what now?"... The fight for "legal" equality for gays is over. Other than appeals and people's own issues with sex, the battle has been won.

My argument was never, 'people are people and all should be free to do what they wish as long as it hurts no one'. That shouldn't need to be said.

My argument was the farce that was "the sanctity of marriage". j-lo can marry 3 times in as many years. (I don't know how many years, but I don't care. I know all but one were short lived) There was no out cry. Spears gets married twice, one of which lasted 30 days. All we got there was gossip...

The divorce rate is through the roof and that's just in marriages ending in 5 years. Again, not much is said, but Us weekly and TMZ make a fortune.

Two dudes want to get married and the entire country has an opinion, many of which were negative.
