Hightower Wednesday

That goes for the growers too!

That goes for the growers too!

The Canadian rocker and master storyteller Neil Young says: “Music is a universal language.”

Yes, and when created by a people’s champion like him, music can bring down the high and mighty — just as Joshua’s trumpeters brought down the walls of Jericho.

Or, in Young’s case, the walls of Monsanto.

He’s released powerful new album called The Monsanto Years. It takes on the arrogant gene manipulator and avaricious pesticide merchant for its relentless attempts to profiteer at the expense of family farmers, consumers, people’s democratic rights, and nature itself.

On the title track, Young sings: “The farmer knows he’s got to grow what he can sell, Monsanto, Monsanto/ So he signs a deal for GMOs that makes life hell with Monsanto, Monsanto/ Every year he buys the patented seeds/ Poison-ready, they’re what the corporation needs, Monsanto.”

    Quite possibly Monsanto is the greatest threat to our lives through the use of Glyphosate but it has the ability to contain the threat of the hazards being exposed to the public through Legislative means while promoting new products to poison the Earth further and us along with it.

    Neo-Fascism defined.

      Soy beans in the field behind our property. They were choked with weeds, and now they aren’t. I missed the spraying, but that’s what they do. The soy bean seed must be from Monsanto so they can use Round-Up on the 17 acres of soy beans.

    Hot and humid here, still. I have the A/C on, a sweatband on and I still poured sweat while on kitchen duty.

    However, we now have a solar cover on the pool and last night, for the first time, I got into the water! YAY!!! Water was 85°.

      You were in hot water. 😐


    • º¿carol says:

      Water was still 85° but tonight there was a breeze, temp dropped to 67° so I just sat on the patio to enjoy it, to heck with the pool I took a shower tonight instead.

      I need to get in the pool during the day tomorrow so I can vacuum the bottom. This is when I miss Bob’s help. I used to be able to get him to do that while I did various other Carolizing things.

    102 in the garage with the big door wide open and fans running.


  5. David B. Benson says:

    Stick walk to Terre View Blvd and back in 45 minutes; slow.

    For the week: 172+45=217 minutes.

    Hot weather from you, Den, through my friend’s farm in South Dakota, all the way to here in mid-Michigan.

    It’s scary how fast I got used to the A/C. HATE having to run it $$$, I primarily turn it on for Bob’s sake. Then he bitches, seeing nothing but dollar signs for running it. Still the humidity is AWFUL! It’s a lot to inhale, I feel it and I don’t have emphysema.
