15 May 2008
Seizing water - the water restoration act of 2007.

Just wait until these bush types get control of the think gass prices are high! Hah! And what they cannot control, they will poison, it is the way they are.

On a planet that is 75% covered with water, these schmux are MAKING water shortages....for the price of enmod we could have had a killer aquaduct/desalinization/electric power generating system, but that is not the point....slavery is the point....b

Seizing water - the water restoration act of 2007:

"…gives the federal government complete control over every waterway, river, stream, lake, aquifer, creek, slew, swamp, underground spring and even the rain that runs off your roof…"

Majority of Americans reject federal water grab:

MONSANTO Family Were
Slave Dealers And Owners

Here is some interesting MONSANTO history:

The Monsanto Family ofLouisiana included Benjamin, Isaac, Manuel,
Eleanora, Gracia and Jacob. They made frequent purchases of Blacks
including twelve in 1785, thirteen and then thirty-one in 1787, and eighty
in 1768.

In 1794, Benjamin sold "Babet,"a Black woman, to Franco Cardel. Manuel
sold two Blacks from Guinea named"Polidor" and "Lucy" to James Saunders
for $850 in silver.

As individualsthey were owners of Africans whom they named "Quetelle,"
"Valentin," "Baptiste," "Prince," "Princess," "Ceasar," "Dolly," "Jen,"
"Fanchonet," "Rozetta," "Mamy," "Sofia," and many others. Isaac repeatedly
mortgaged four of these when in financial trouble. Benjamin Monsanto of
Natchez, Mississippi entered into at least 6 contracts for the sale of his
slaves which would take place after his death. Gracia bequeathed nine
Africans to her relatives in her 1790 will, and Eleanora also held Blacks
as slaves.

Manuel Jacob Monsanto entered into at least 12 contracts for sale of slaves=

between 1787 and 1789 in Natchez and New Orleans, Louisiana.1135 "His
family consists of himself and seven Negroes."1136 Later, "Jacob Monsanto,
son of Isaac Rodrigues Monsanto, one of the very first known Jews to settl=
in New Orleans, owner of a several-hundred-acre plantation at Manchac, fel=
in love with his slave, Mamy or Maimi William. Their daughter Sophia, grew
up to be a lovely quadroon." An excerpt of one of Benjamin's many slave
contracts follows:

"Be it known to all to whom these presents shall come, that I Benjamin
Monsanto do really and effectually sell to Henry Manadu a negro wench named=

"Judy," aged Eighteen years, native of Guinea, for the sum of four hundred
Dollars in all the month of January in the year one thousand Seven hundred
and ninety one; and paying interest at the rate of ten per cent for the
remaining two hundred and fifty Dollars until paid; said negro wench being
and remaining mortgaged until final payment shall have been made; wherewith=

I acknowledge to be fully satisfied and content, hereby renouncing the plea=

of non numerata pecunia, fraud, or others in the case Whatsoever; granting
formal receipt for the same. For which said consideration I do hereby
resign all right, title, possession and claim, in and to the said Slave,
all of which I transfer and convey to the Said Purchaser and his assigns,
to be, as his own, held and enjoyed, and when fully paid for, Sold,
exchanged, or otherwise alienated at pleasure in virtue of these presents
granted in his favor in token of real delivery, without other proof of
property being required, from which he is hereby released, binding myself
to maintain the validity of this present sale in full form and right in
favor of the Purchaser aforesaid, and granting authority to the Justices o=
his Majesty to compel me to the performance of the same as if Judgment had
already been given therein, renouncing all laws, rights, and privileges in
my favor whatsoever. And I the said Henry Manadu being present, do hereby
accept this Instrument in my favor, receiving said negro Wench as purchase=
in the form and for the consideration therein mentioned and contained,
wherewith I am fully satisfied and content, hereby renouncing the plea of
non numerato pecunia, fraud, or other considerations in the case
Whatsoever; granting formal receipt for the same. Done and executed, in
testimony thereof, at the post of Natchez, this nineteenth day of the mont=
of February in the year one thousand seven hundred and ninety...."

Benjamin Monsanto, sold land and "a Dwelling House, Store, and two other
buildings, for which I have received payment in a negro, named 'Nat;' to my=

full satisfaction." Another contract stipulated "that Don Louis Faure is
bound to defend the said sale in case the negro shall be claimed by any
other Person." In a 1792 contract, Benjamin mortgaged his Black slaves: "I
do hereby specially mortgage three slaves to me belonging, namely Eugene
and Louis, aged twenty four years each, the first named of the Senegal
nation and the second of the Congo nation; and a Negro Woman named
Adelaide, aged twenty eight years, also of the Congo nation; which said
slaves I warrant free from mortgage or other incumbrance, as I have made
appear by certificate from the Recorder of mortgages; and which said slave=
I promise and engage shall not be sold nor otherwise alienated during the
term of this obligation..."
