That is why I don't care for your posts. You don't know me from Adam
yet you are *so* judgmental about all my posts. As far as I'm concerned
you can ruin this newsgroup all you want with your WAY off topic posts
and your very strange politics. I'll take my gardening knowledge elsewhere.
You (and a few others) have managed to chase a lot of longtime posters
away and that is a shame but not the end of the world. There are many
garden boards that are still very useful and the *best* thing is that
they only allow GARDENING post (*NO* politics). This group was going
long before you started dragging it down and will go on long after you
(and I) are gone. It is just ashame that it has come to this.
You call it judment, I call it discernment.
What politics are strange? Those that differ from yours? Why don't
you take exception to each and every OT post that shows here that goes
against your system of thought?
I could not care less if you take your ideas and advocacy concerning
the continuation of the poisoning of my planet elsewhere. People need
to stand up against planet-rapers.
And your, and others, advocacy of the chemical solution may have
accomplished the same thing with new lurkers and posters. It may have
started the slow poisoning of a child......the chemical solution *is*
the end of the world.
Diversity is a wonderful thing, and has kept this here old world
choogling along for a loooonnng time. The destruction of diversity,
in ideas, in society.... and *in the garden* is an evil thing, my
"In battling evil, excess is good; for he who is moderate in
I should not bother to even reply to you but you do need to know one
fact. I, myself, am an organic gardener and ONE TIME I suggested the
use of fertilizer and since then you been on my case (so much for your
"so called" discernment). And, in my area (farm country), fertilizer is
used by EVERY farmer I know. You can complain about that all you want
and "go off the deep end" and say that farmers are destroying your
world. I know for a fact that my grandkids are much healthier BECAUSE
of farmers use of fertilizers and the better crops that they produce.
You may think that you are "saving the planet" but you are only fooling
Don't bother to reply. I know I can't change your mind and you won't
change mine so don't waste your words on me.
Some might dispute that. I'd rather get worked up over mega corporations
bent on dominating the world's seed, and therefore food, supply.

They are essentially the same people. Chemferts kill the soil organisms
which leads to loss of top soil. Chemferts (nitrates) have infiltrated
the aquifers of the midwest and are poisonous to children. Chemfert
run-off pollutes our water ways and creates a 22126 square kilometre
(8543 mi?) region in the Gulf of Mexico called a dead zone around the
mouth of the Mississippi River.
Chemferts encourage huge monoculture planting of GM corn, GM soybean, GM
cotton in the same place, over and over, allowing organisms that attack
them to build-up in the soil, requiring more and more pesticides.
This is encouraged by Monsanto, that sells the seeds, and companies like
Cargill who process and fractionate the crops, and companies like
Phillip Morris (now Altria Group) who sell the cheap, nutrient deficient
food to the American public.
It's all cut from the same cloth Dan.

And I shall take you at your word and apologize for my hastiness and
lack of discernment.
Yes, this *is* true. They are destroying my world....yours too, Bill.
Ponder upon how much healthier your grands could be. Your assumption
that better crops result from chemferts is wrong. And upon whose
facts do you base your assumption of "better life through chemistry"?
You changed my mind about your use of poison. Are you so inflexible
that you cannot accept a changing?
