And remember – Romney and hedge fund operators do NOT contribute to the economic well-being. They do NOT create well=paying jobs. They take money for their benefit, at low and/or subsidized tax rates, without truly benefiting either most Americans or American society as a whole. They are predators, they are vulture capitalists as Rick Perry rightly noted. They are selfish bastards.

The south and west sides of Kaua’i have been home to the world’s largest open-air test fields of genetically modified organisms for nearly two decades. Taking over the land once dominated by a thriving sugarcane industry, DuPont, Pioneer, Syngenta, Dow, BASF and Monsanto now crowd the tiny island’s once pristine landscape with fields of experimental genetically modified crops including corn, soy and sunflowers treated with a variety of experimental pesticide cocktails. Kaua’i's idyllic climate allows the biotech companies to get 3-4 planting seasons in every year.
