Postcards from the P├ętrole Epoque V

March of the Pigs via SeattleOil (Wes)
In one application (WO 2005/015989 to be precise) Monsanto is describing very general methods of crossbreeding and selection, using artificial insemination and other breeding methods which are already in use. The main "invention" is nothing more than a particular combination of these elements designed to speed up the breeding cycle for selected traits, in order to make the animals more commercially profitable.
According to (Christophe) Then, "I couldn't belive this. I've been reviewing patents for 10 years and I had to read this three times. Monsanto isn't just seeking a patent for the method, they are seeking a patent on the actual pigs which are bred from this method. It's an astoundingly broad and dangerous claim."

The big wheel keeps on turning. This is the penultimate result of oil fueled globalist mythology enacted as consensus reality.

It is horse shit.

Like clutch of obdurate donkeys, Monsanto mercenaries with scientific training belch out technology that seeks to enslave farmers and consumers in a web of corporate controlled products.

Have a tasty slab of MonsantoPork. Slathered delightfully with a crust of liver destroying MonsantoCorn, salted with Dioxin.

Are similar products, long available in the global commons - Pigs, Corn, etcetera - slated for a round of MonsantoFlu? Who knows - if it isn't patented, it is fit for consumption only by socialists and other rabble.

Thanks for the heads up on the pig.

I wonder if a social movement will come into existance where people who work for, say Monsanto, find they can't buy items from some vendors as said vendors refuse to sell thier wares to, say, Monsanto employees or shareholders?

I'm looking forward to the day when they solve all our problems by developing genetically engineered pigs that shit oil.

SW - you're a genius. Though I think it would be better if they piss oil and shit plastic...

Kind of reminds me of the Simpson's episode where Homer is babbling about how much he loves bacon and pork and ham, then Lisa tells him they all come from the same animal.

"Sure Lisa, a magical animal !" (waving fingers wildly).

As for Monsanto, I've been having visions that we'll all be serfs of the Monsanto shareholders for a few years now. Maybe I should buy some...

As far as I understand it, if Monsanto stuff just happens to 'accidentally' cross with wild stuff, then Monsanto owns the wild stuff too.

Suppose you grow GM corn. You get seeds, right? Wrong. It's illegal to plant them - you have to buy seeds from the patent holder, unless you hold a licence, of course.

This is all just plainly barking.
