    The Supreme Court Justices, who gave Monsanto a warm reception from the start, ruled that Bowman had broken the law because he planted seeds which naturally yielded from the original patented seed products—Monsanto's policies prohibit farmers from saving or reusing seeds from Monsanto born crops.
    Farmers who use Monsanto's seeds are forced to buy the high priced new seeds every year.

    What is refreshing about Obama is that unlike republicans like Nixon, Reagan and Bush Sr and Jr, he gives the public a heads up and does nothing to hide his Corporatism or desire to make the US even more of a corporate state;

    For instance, un-coerced, by the house or senate and of his own free will and volition he personally appointed over the four years;
    1. director of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, Roger Beachy, former director of the Monsanto Danforth Center
    2.As deputy commissioner of the FDA, the new food-safety-issues czar, the infamous Michael Taylor, former vice-president for public policy for Monsanto
    3. commissioner of the USDA, Iowa governor, Tom Vilsack. Vilsack had set up a national group, the Governors’ Biotechnology Partnership, and had been given a Governor of the Year Award by the Biotechnology Industry Organization, whose members include Monsanto.
    4. the new Agriculture Trade Representative, who would push GMOs for export, Islam Siddiqui, a former Monsanto lobbyist.




    5. the new counsel for the USDA, Ramona Romero, who had been corporate counsel for another biotech giant, DuPont.
    6. the new head of the USAID, Rajiv Shah, who had previously worked in key positions for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a major funder of GMO agriculture research.
