    Rewarding failure is one of the main reasons for mass shootings. The little darlings just can’t handle failure because they’ve never been subject to it. Since they have no experience with failure, when they fail they snap.

    A lot of the folks who are most opposed to fertilizers and GMO seeds really would rather people starve. Monsanto isn’t perfect, but the green revolution is a big reason why Malthus didn’t come true.

    The United Nations’ disaster-monitoring system says that since 1970, the number of disasters worldwide has more than quadrupled, rising to about 400 per year.
    Wellll, did disasters quadruple, or did reporting of them expand? I suspect it’s the latter.

    When we lived in Nebraska there were feed lots on one side of town. When the wind blew from that direction those in the know smiled and said, “It smells like money.”

    The publicity surrounding finding the puppy greatly increased the chances she would find a loving forever home, as opposed to just taking her to the shelter.

    Monsanto as a company has had shockingly awful ethics and has treated innocent farmers brutally. For me, it’s not about the larger green revolution, but about a giant corporation trying to control global agriculture by hook, crook, lawsuit, or law.
