What's your problem with disease-resistant seeds that produce superior crops?
Are you also "gluten-free"?
Have peanut allergies?
GMO crops were developed to be pesticide resistant not disease resistant. Monsanto, developed GMO seeds also just happens to own and developed Round Up weed killer. They made seeds that grow plants that can withstand massive amounts of toxic weed killer sprayed on them and not die. Then they will tell you that these poisons dissipate before you eat the food produced by these seeds. This is from the same Monsanto that gave us DDT years ago and said it was harmless and Agent Orange and said the same. And that is only one of the concerns. A virus or bacteria is needed to get the dna that is being introduced into the original dna. The one most commonly used is the E-coli virus. Monsanto is buying up as many heritage seeds as they can get their hands on all the while suing non GMO farmers into bankruptcy by claiming they are using their "patented" seeds even when the farmers crops have been cross contaminated by nearby fields. Even if the non GMO farmer wins in ocurt he is usually bankrupted by the muti billion dollar corperation Monsanto that can keep them in court for years. Look up Percy Schmeiser a canola farmer from Canada who refused their gag order after he won in ocurt. There is more and more evidence that GMO foods cause leaky gut syndrome which allows undigested food into your system which causes your body to respond to it as a foreign substance and creates allergies. Considering that 80-90% of all soy, corn and now wheat are from GMO seeds it doesn't surprise me there could actually be a connection between Gluten intolerance and celiac's Disease. I will pause to give you time to digest, excuse the pun, this. I can go on for much longer on this subject.

Sorry, incomplete thought above. The virus or bacteria is needed to get the dna to adhere to the original dna.

Monsanto GMO seed cannot be saved for future crops thereby insuring that you have to repurchase their seed over and over again. Any farmer attempting to save and reuse their seed is brought to court. They have now created what is known as the suicide seed that cannot reproduce. This is disasterous for the whole culture of farming. The massive amounts of pesticides that these plants can withstand have resulted in tons more pesticides being used , all to the benefit of Monsanto's pocketbook and the detriment of our water tables. Monsanto is one of the biggest lobbyist in Washington DC and exudes extreme influence over our government. Google "ex Monsanto employees in government" and see the list of names that appears. This will include Michael Taylor, an Obama appointee to our Ag Dept. Can you say conflict of interest? It also include Clarence Thomas, Donald Rumsfeld and even Dick Cheney has ties to Monsanto.

GMO farmers are subsidized by the government unlike most non gmo farmers. GMO corn is force fed to cattle, chicken, pork. Someone once commented on here that you don't have to force feed cattle corn, they love it. Yes well children love sugar too, but it isn't a great diet for them. Cattle that have been raised on GMO corn which their two stomachs are not designed to digest usually wind up sick and hence need lots of antibiotics. There are so many aspects to this subject I'm not sure where to go next if you are even interested. But state after state are trying to pass the GMO labeling laws. Monsanto is spending millions to defeat it. After 5 yrs of blogging on Topix and other venues when people didn't even know what GMO's were it is very gratifying to me to see the progress and awakening happening. We are still way behind Europe on this issue as labeling GMO foods is already the standard in most of Europe.

I was just doing a quick perusal of news items tonight and came across something about Zimmerman. I took a double take.

They used to call him white but were called on the carpet for that by normal people so now they are calling him a white Hispanic!!!!! NO joke!

So the white Hispanic shot the black black boy thug.

These media liberals are a real trip.

It was a tragedy that could have been avoided.
Zimmerman could have stayed in his house or in his car and Trayvon could have kept walking home.
But it would have been avoided had either one done either.
Now a jury has to decide which one was most responsible for why the young man is dead - a man trying to protect his neighborhood waiting for the police carrying a gun or a teenager who decided to confront him and instigate a fight instead of just going home.
Very sad it happened no matter who's side you're on.
And I could have avoided the traffic accident at Third & Maple if I had just stayed home, too. But I didn't.

In fact, we could all avoid Life's downside if we'd just learn to live in a closet until we die.

That way, we'd never step on anyone's toes, racial or otherwise.

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are a risky business.
Some folks prefer the safety of Socialism, Political Correctness and Master/Slave relationships. I do not.

Are you just confused or have you been drinking?
The vote for the resolution using military force in Afghanistan was almost unanimous. The resolution using military force in Iraq was supported by Democrats by a 110 vote.
If no Democrats had voted for either you'd have a point.
But you have no point.
If all Democrats had voted against Iraq YOUR Party still would have carried the vote in the House; 207 total House Democrat votes to 215 Republican votes for.

There's no getting around it. Its no excuse for your sorry Party to say "Some Democrats went along with it." You don't get how totally retarded that is?

Why do you want more Repubs in office? So they can do this to American workers?
.
Washington (CNN)-- Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad.
.
The method Republicans have used to block all jobs legislation in the past two years is the same. A jobs bill comes up, it is filled with positive things for the economy, Republicans filibuster debate, this shields them from having to make floor speeches on why they don't want tax breaks for small businesses... etc.

Why? Well, if the economy recovers too strongly before an election, Republicans will lose power. If jobs numbers look too good, people will want to keep the same party. By Republicans blocking all jobs legislation and keeping jobs numbers from improving they believe this is their ticket to power.
