As the world begins to digest the implications of intellectual property for online censorship, another IP issue threatens an even more fundamental part of our daily lives: our food supply. Backed by legal precedent and armed with seemingly inexhaustible lobbying funds, a handful of multinationals are attempting to use patents on life itself to monopolize the biosphere.
Find out more about the process of patenting life and what it means for the food supply on this week's GRTV Backgrounder.

Walking around Brattleboro, Vermont, the need to Bomb Iran is Apparent
I, Steven G. Erickson took the above photo in Brattleboro, Vermont, February 14, 2012, as I walked about. I posted a bunch [more pictures here] showing what many typical average size downtown areas in America look. There is flood damage to the downtown area and there is wind damage to buildings from a past storm. The condition of public transportation, and downtown buildings, is abysmal. So, looking around seeing all the money being sucked out of the US economy for wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and maybe soon Iran, is insane. The money taxpayers are spending is not being used at home.
We the people must demand the build up off all these military bases of occupation, all the spending that makes international corporate owners and banksters rich, while bankrupting us, must cease. All these wars could cause an economic collapse, power grid failure, civil unrest, and estimates that half of the US population could be no more in 6 months.
Unmanned Drone Aircraft makers more than doubled their lobbying efforts. Congressmen and Senators virtually met in secret to keep privacy and sanity advocates out of the equation. Obama signed the legislation yesterday. So, the FAA budget will guarantee more than 30,000 flying spy machines over your head. Just more proof that Obama and the US Government is out to screw the public, not serve the public. These corporate bankster minions are ramping up for something. Let's put up roadblocks to their unlimited spending and power grab.
Correction Corporation of America is probably going to take over the US prison system, privatizing it. The populations in prisons will grow, and the corporation wants government to guarantee that there will be a source to keep the prison filled. So, we are paying taxes to be locked up in prisons in greater percentages and numbers than ever before. Do you wish to pay all that you have, will have, and all generations will have, to be a slave?
