    use of one of the components of Agent Orange.

    Monsanto in the past knowingly concealed information about the dangers of multiple chemicals it produced, from PCB's to Dioxins.

    This are cold hard facts, as much as clowns desperate to vigorously ride any fence they come across might try to pretend that they're not.

    None of us should tolerate right wingers trying to pose as "reasonable Liberals" when they assault statements of plain fact with labels like "hysterics".

    Those who use these tactics and those who enable them are equally responsible for most of the severe threats facing us today.

    Is it "Gordon Gecko Democrat" week here at Dailykos?

      2,4-D is not "Agent Orange", and it does not contain dioxin, which was the toxic component of Agent Orange.

      THAT is an accusation you had better back up with some evidence, or withdraw.  

      If you do neither, I will forward the matter to Elfling.  Kos has already made it clear that accusations of shilling are bannable offenses here.

      I am getting really fucking tired of the increasing number of CT kooks at DKos who shoot their mouths off with statements like this one without backing it up in anyway. It has become routine now for all the CTers to post accusations that people are paid Monsanto shills, or  trolls for Big Pharma, or work for TEPCO, or are NRA employees, or support the NSA, or whatever. It's silly, stupid, and dishonest.  It's just a way to delegitimize criticism and avoiding answering it or even reading it. It should not be tolerated here by anyone on any side of any issue.

      I'm fucking tired of seeing it. And it won't stop until Kos starts bojo'ing people for it.

      I've been with the environmental movement since most of us here were pooping their diapers. So you can take your idiotic accusation and shove it.

      In the end, reality always wins.
