Monsanto’s ‘Zombie Wheat’ Falling Apart: American Farmers ‘Stand Their Ground’.

Monsanto’s business model is falling apart right in front of their own face, because the biotech firm blatantly disrespects the property rights of farmers, contaminating their fields with unauthorized genetically modified seeds.  These unapproved GMO seeds inevitably cross-contaminate farmers’ fields, effectively destroying their yields.

Cops Need a Warrant to Grab Your Cell Tower Data, Florida Court Rules

The Florida Supreme Court ruled Thursday that obtaining cell phone location data to track a person’s location or movement in real time constitutes a Fourth Amendment search and therefore requires a court-ordered warrant.

But the way the ruling is written (.pdf), it would also cover the use of so-called “stingrays”—sophisticated technology law enforcement agencies use to locate and track people in the field without assistance from telecoms. Agencies around the country, including in Florida, have been using the technology to track suspects—sometimes without obtaining a court order, other times deliberately deceiving judges and defendants about their use of the devices to track suspects, telling judges the information came from “confidential” sources rather than disclose their use of stingrays.

AP Dozens of Former Nazies got Millions of U.S Social Security $$$

Millions in social security for expelled nazis

90 suspected Nazi war criminals and SS guards who collected millions of dollars in Social Security payments after being forced out of the United States, an Associated Press investigation found.

Former Auschwitz guard Jakob Denzinger settled in this pleasant town on the Drava River, where he lives comfortably, courtesy of U.S. taxpayers. He collects a Social Security payment of about $1,500 each month, nearly twice the take-home pay of an average Croatian worker.

TO MAKE IT WORSE

once these former Nazis were discovered, payments continued after they were expelled from the country in a bid to encourage them to leave the United States peacefully.

“at least 38 of 66 suspects removed from the country kept their Social Security benefits,”

At least four of these men are said to still be alive and receiving money from American taxpayers.

Justice Department’s Nazi-hunting unit, the OSI Office of Special Investigations never threw them OUT!

Legislation that would have closed the Social Security loophole failed 15 years ago, partly due to opposition from the OSI. Since then, according to the AP’s analysis, at least 10 Nazi suspects kept their benefits after leaving.

legal loophole that has given the U.S. Justice Department leverage to persuade Nazi suspects to leave. If they agreed to go, or simply fled before deportation, they could keep their Social Security, according to interviews and internal government records.

In newly uncovered Social Security Administration records, the AP found that by March 1999, 28 suspected Nazi criminals had collected $1.5 million in Social Security payments after their removal from the U.S.

@RepMaloney New York’s 12th Congressional District – Manhattan, Brooklyn & Queens
Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., demanded Monday that the inspectors general at the Justice Department and Social Security Administration launch an “immediate investigation” of the payments. Maloney is a high-ranking member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.  In letters to the inspectors general at both agencies, Maloney called the payments a “gross misuse of taxpayer dollars.”

If nonsenescence, or biological immortality, is an option in nature, how come this particular mini-bit of pond scum got the big prize?

Everything Dies, Right? But Does Everything Have To Die? Here’s A Surprise

Evolution is such a random, casino like affair; it’s startling to learn that longevity varies without regard to size. I know Daniel Martinez’s hydras were cleaned, fed, protected. They didn’t live in the wild. But still, they have lasted and lasted and lasted. I expect sequoias, redwoods and whales to last longer than mayflies, daisies and clover. Big things go on, but when two little freshwater animals have such drastically different life expectancies, all I can think is … whoa! Life is a puzzlement. npr
