Monsanto GMO crops set ablaze in Oregon, FBI investigating


Except for scant local coverage, GMO crops said to belong to Monsanto were set ablaze in Oregon. According to several independent media sources, 40 Tons of GMO Sugar Beets were set ablaze in Eastern Oregon on June 22nd and the FBI is said to be investigating. The fires were alleged to have been started over a three day period. This would certainly classify as a major news story considering the world wide resistance to genetically modified crops engineered by Monsanto which has patents on the seeds which can naturally spread to neighboring fields. Why has the corporate media ignored this story?

The Business Journals has published rankings of state governors in job creation and while South Carolina isn't last, it isn't far from it. Tune in for some Haley-hatin and questions about why a State dominated by Republicans can not seem to create any jobs.

Zimmerman murder trial witness for the prosecution, Rachel Jeantel wrapped up her testimony yesterday and her testimony recalling Trayvon Martin saying a "creepy-ass cracker" was following him in referring to George Zimmerman. This is of course leading to speculation that Martin was racists towards white people.

However, to play up Trayvon Martin as using cracker as a racist term to describe who was following him is to say you believe Jeantel's testimony that Zimmerman was following Martin as other evidence shows.

Also, there is some interesting little known Florida history about the word "cracka" or cracker" besides the racial overtones to describe poor whites. According to Wikipedia,

"In reference to a native of Florida or Georgia, however, it is sometimes used in a neutral or positive context and is sometimes used self-descriptively with pride."

"Another theory holds that slave foremen in the antebellum South used bullwhips to discipline African slaves, with such use of the whip being described as "cracking the whip". The white foremen who cracked these whips thus became known as "crackers". They are called by the town's-people, "Crackers," from the frequency with which they crack their large whips, as if they derived a peculiar pleasure from the sound"
