Longer than Frasier

is how long I think I will be fuming over Monsanto. Zelda is right, it's really unfair to single Hillary Clinton out for criticism because of her involvement with this juggernaut of a company.

This article from Chicago describes a sweetheart deal Monsanto has with the government -- farmers get a break on Federal crop insurance premiums if they buy Monsanto's seed.

If I wanted to be paranoid, I would say that Monsanto is just waiting for their genetic material to contaminate every growing thing in the United States, at which point they will declare that they own it all and everybody has to pay them.

But that would just be crazy.

Maybe even crazier than wishing a Green Party candidate could actually get elected.
