    WTO. Monsanto is more heinous, but if they're gone someone will simply take their disgusting place.

    Yeah each of these options is pretty bad. I guess I know more about Monsanto because I'm in the biotech field... man they do some really nefarious things.

    Suing farmers when their crops are germinated from their GMO pollen? Yeah, they planned for the wind to blow that way so they could steal your genes! Oy...

    According to my mom (a devout southern baptist) they are both signs of the coming anti-christ and we must appose their will by the grace of our heavenly father.

    CAN I GET AN AMEN?!

    PeterStrong, I think you're right in that the WTO seems at least a little more open to change.

    Don't you mean Altria Group, Since Phillip Morris changed their name. Nothing like a name change to attempt to loose the stigma attached to your old name.

    Valuejet - Crappy maintenance, crashes, kills people
    AirTran - Great low cost airline

    Kentucky Fried Chicken - Eww Fried foods, how unhealthy
    KFC - Hip place to go get a meal

    Yeah I forgot. They changed it to Altria Group because Philip morris owns Kraft foods so they created this Altria alias.

    I don't think people would feel to good about giving there kids kool aid and oreos if they knew there was a tobacco giant behind it. Kind of REALLY gross if you think about it.. icon_eek.gif

    **Update** Aparently Altria Spun off Kraft and its now an independent Corporation. Thank god. I can enjoy oreos and tang without the taint of big tabocco. icon_biggrin.gif

    Oh my.. I knew what the WTO was right off the bat, but had literally no clue what Monsanto was. After reading its Wikipedia article I would have to agree with everyone else voting for it. Although this is an awkward comparison involving a corporation and a supranational organization. Obviously it is easier for the corporation, answerable only to their shareholders, to be more daring and willing to push the envelope on things as compared with a council composed of members from 152 nations.
