America the Beautiful - In Pictures

O beautiful for spacious skies,
Predator drone with hellfire missiles
For amber waves of grain,*
More evil than will fit in a caption.
For purple mountain majesties
Bingham Canyon copper mine, Utah
 Above the fruited plain!
1911 ad for the sale of lands stolen from Native Americans.
1921 Ku Klux Klan rally outside Chicago.
Little has changed in 95 years.
God shed his grace on thee,
Tennessee mosque vandalized.
And crown thy good
After shooting an unarmed man, a South Carolina policeman watched him slowly die.
With brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
Louisiana coast, 2010.

* Monsanto has made a fortune from creating genetically modified seeds. These modifications pollute organic farms through a little know process called pollination. Organic farmers have unsuccessfully sued Monsanto for corrupting their crops. Monsanto, in turn has successfully sued organic farmers for patent infringement when Monsanto created genomes show up in their crops. That is but the tip of the iceberg of Monsanto evilness.

In 2015, Congress pass the so-called Monsanto Protection Act making it illegal to sue companies creating genetically engineered crops for any illnesses, deaths, or damages those crops cause.
