Subject: Songs about GMO
From: GUEST,Bob Coltman

I thought I had seen a GMO songs thread in here somewhere. But I have been unable to find it, so am starting this.

Joe, please join this to an existing thread if there is one.

Just wanted to add my two cents to the struggle for fertile seeds:

SOW TRUE SEEDS
(Bob Coltman)
Based on Lil McClintock's "Sow Good Seed" and Woody Guthrie-Cisco Houston's "Sowin' On the Mountain"

CHO:
Sow true seeds, everybody,
Don't use that G.M. O.,
Sow true seeds, everybody,
You got to reap just what you sow.

Those true seeds are your treasure,
They're you're heritge, you know,
Those true seeds are your birthright,
So boycott Monsanto.

CHO

Any man who'd take a plant,
And fix it so its seed won't grow,
He is a madman, he is a bad man,
He will reap just what he'll sow.

CHO

Every plant must be fertile,
So its generations will how,
Those who make a plant infertile,
They will reap just what they sow.

CHO

So if they try to sell you bad seed
Just you stand up and tell them no,
Only the good seed, only the fertile seed,
We want to reap just what we sow.

CHO

Sow good seeds, everybody,
Not one seed that's G.M.O.,
Sow true seeds, everybody,
You got to reap just what you sow.
Sow

shoot - typos!

In verse three, the second line should read

So its generations will grow.

Uh huh, that makes better sense.

Bob

All of our grains are the product of selection, crossing and re-selection; GMO in the slow lane.
The same is true of our common fruits and vegetables.

Our oceans are already depleted of fish stocks, altering the ecology of the seas. Fish and shellfish farms are the future, to keep up with the rapidly expanding (out of control?) population.

What is needed are government departments with the scientific know-how to oversee the genetic modifications that are introduced into production.

Railing against the future of food production in word and song is Ludditic and pointless. Agitating for proper oversight is required instead.

Q, have you been following what Monsanto has been up to?

Yes, Monsanto is a leader in the field of improving seeds of food and field crops.
Corn seed in Latin America, and cotton seed in Australia, are leading their seed and genomics division, which should reach the $2 billion in sales next year, as North American sales start to take off.
I recommend purchase of their stock.

There are objections to the fact that their genetic stocks are patented, but this is necessary to prevent uncontrolled use of their products.
Some of their genetically engineered crops produce sterile seed. This prevents crossing with native plants, moreover, as the science develops, superceded varieties are removed from contention with later seed developments.

Similar advances hopefully are expected in the fisheries industry.

Yes, Q. But there is also their persecution of smaller farmers/organic farmers. And they deserve all the bad press they can get because of that.

There are one or two cases that really do not reflect organic farming. Suit to protect crops is a right, and court decisions will be necessary to set limits.
Some new crops have increased resistance to pesticides. Benefits, vs. deleterious effects to some crops and insects has no been established.
Any advance takes time to assess.

"All of our grains are the product of selection, crossing and re-selection; GMO in the slow lane."

I dont' think corn is cross breeding with insecticides in nature.

"In a study released by the International Journal of Biological Sciences, analyzing the effects of genetically modified foods on mammalian health, researchers found that agricultural giant Monsanto's GM corn is linked to organ damage in rats.

According to the study, which was summarized by Rady Ananda at Food Freedom, "Three varieties of Monsanto's GM corn - Mon 863, insecticide-producing Mon 810, and Roundup® herbicide-absorbing NK 603 - were approved for consumption by US, European and several other national food safety authorities."

Mr. Coltman was asking about a song. Why don't you guys take your argument where it belongs? b.s.

WTF are you? Topical songs have political overtones. These are some of them.
