year before Mitt Romney began working on the Bain & Company project
to rebuild "Monsanto" and cast their new image and focus on agriculture
biotechnology, Congress passed a bill banning PCB (polychlorinated biphenyl), an
odorless, tasteless, clear liquid known to cause cancer that was the "bread and
butter" of Monsanto's profits. Monsanto was already branded and plagued
with the label of having created the "Agent Orange" contaminated dioxins used in
Vietnam. Now Monsanto would need a big save, financially and reputation-wise, so
they could fool the public with their new image and a new "frontier," while
secretly polluting and genetically modifying American agriculture with the new
faceless poison known as Roundup.
Romney knew his first job at
Bain was to propel an evil company that was on the brink of failure. He knew
Monsanto's previous reputation and about all the litigation. Romney also knew he
would be rewarded financially in the biggest way if he could pull the whole
thing off, and he did. Romney changed Monsanto's image over the years, from a
scandal ridden chemical giant to a seemingly "prestigious" Agri-business firm.
