And there are lots more to be found here.

These mainstream bozos have been spewing this lipophobic nonsense so long that really, REALLY believe it – so they must keep repeating it.
Facts? we don need no stinkin’ facts.
It is also true that someone who arrived at a position via emotions will NOT be swayed by logical arguments and facts.

Equating an industrial innovation with Big Bad Business makes you sound just like one of the economic and technological ignorant statists.

From someone who does use their real name, to someone who uses Rand’s character names: “Equating industrial innovation with big Bad Business”?? Rolling on the floor laughing my fucking ass off Dear John Galt. Your Randian “big business is always persecuted” mentality is straight out of your asshole. You mean “industrial innovation” that needs a zillion lobbyists and government dictates to prop up its industry; destroy and cut off its smaller, private competitors; and enable its corporate-socialist tyranny? The point of the post, that Big Agra is an omnipotent-subsidized-governmentized centerpiece of the Big Food Corporatocracy, was lost on you…and that’s because you read Atlas Shrugged? Try reading a 2nd book, or even a 3rd one. You might actually learn instead of parrot, you fucking neocon.
Economically ignorant? Ummm, I have a graduate degree in Economics. Austrian Econ program. 4.0 GPA. Interesting, eh?

When I saw this chart it reminded me of soy protein isolate – an innovative, man-made product from soy beans that no animal (except humans) will consume. Naturally, agribusiness “scientists” have performed “studies” that show this poisonous, inedible crap is good for you. (Of course it is – just take a look at the walking cadavers in the local Heath Food store, closely examining labels to insure they are eating soy protein instead of a product that contains meat…)
ADM, Monsanto, and all the other agribusinesses – with the help of government agents are destroying small farmers businesses and their products, and their trademarked genetically modified produce is causing serious problems: http://beforeitsnews.com/story/1647/719/Farmers_Pigs_All_Sterile_From_GMO_Corn_,Video.html
I heartily suggest looking in the statutes at large http://www.constitution.org/uslaw/sal/sal.htm, and learning a little history of how the government once controlled and taxed harmful products (oleomargarine, for instance) and how that’s all been changed to protect big business at the expense of the health of the people. Now margarine is “good,” and butter (and, of course, whole milk) is “bad.” Now harmful products are produced by agribusiness, tested by same and stamped “good for you” and protected and pushed upon the people by paid off cronies in congress. Meanwhile, small, real food producers are crushed by agribusiness, with the help of the federal health and food safety police. Corn squeezins made illegally in Uncle Lucky’s back yard will also bring in the food and booze police. Nothing to see here folks…
Agribusiness and agribusiness lobbyists are a symptom of out of control corporatism – not exactly how the Republic was designed to operate.
What, exactly, is the problem with calling a spade a spade? How is that attacking Big Bad Business? Check out all the links to those dangerous organic food and whole milk producers being raided by government agents, and check out the stories of agribusiness suing small farmers into oblivion. The fact is, the whole system is broken.
At least some countries won’t allow GMO crap to cross their borders.
Karen once mentioned that despite the amount of coverage in the news and on the internet, many people don’t see what’s happening, and when the fit hits the shan, they’ll be blindsided, wondering “what happened?” If John Q. Galt can’t see that, too bad. Have some more corn bread with “corn sugar” on it. (Yeah – I actually saw a commercial touting “corn sugar” as being identical to sugar made from sugar cane.) It’s all those nuts out there explaining the dangers of soy products and crap like corn syrup we need to watch out for – not innovative, benevolent, agribusiness. Good is bad, black is white, and perpetual war for perpetual peace is the way of life.
The Military Industrial Complex is also good, innovative business, helping millions and millions into early graves, now with just the push of a little button from overseas. It’s big business – ergo – it must be good.

Keep that grass-fed production line running! Cholesterol and saturated fat for the masses!
