The full title of the article is “The Boom of Monsanto and other Seed Corporations Blows in the South of Puerto Rico,” and it centers on the activities of Monsanto and other multinational seed corporations from Guayama to Juana Díaz, Puerto Rico. Eliván Martínez Mercado (Centro de Periodismo Investigativo) refers to the region as the transgenic epicenter of the island.

The blades of the windmills revolve over crops of genetically modified plantations of soybean and corn, plantain and farms that have been crushed by the extended use of concrete. The Caribbean Sea appears, with green areas to the left, and to the right an exit leading to an occupied territory: multinational seed corporations, such as Monsanto, control 31% of the land with the greatest potential for agriculture in the municipality of Juana Díaz. It is the transgenic epicenter of Puerto Rico.

Trump’s Field Trip #2


Travels Abroad #2 … another undeniable embarrassment for the United States … what a spectacle!!!

In Saner Thought

Our Fearless Leader is on his second field trip and like the first one….so far he has done nothing embarrassing but he did stick to a common subject or subjects that he uses in every speech he makes whether domestic or international.

In Poland his speech had the usual diatribes…the last election, degrading Obama, Russian thing and self-grandiose….but if you would like the BIG lines from his speech in Poland….I can help……

About an hour after his press conference Thursday morning with Polish President Andrzej Duda, President Trump headed over to Warsaw’s Krasinski Square, where what the New York Times calls a “pro-Duda crowd” showed off their Polish and American flags and confronted reporters with cries of “fake news” (one of the themes in the earlier presser). “Poland will prevail,” Trump assured his audience, referring to his host nation’s long history of strife, occupation, and invasion. “Poland will always prevail.”…
