Doesn't effect me. I shop at foreign markets where the prices are not heavily inflated and less GMOs.

To avoid GMOs you have use critical thinking. You can shop at an organic store but you can also shop at Foreign-owned supermarkets. U.S gov and their biotech partners don't gene modified vegetables and food that Americans usually don't buy, they go after the most selling foods in America. So if you completely delete the common veggies and food and start trying imported veggies, you will be free from GMOs. Smart ehhh?

For instance, U.S and biotech business partners won't modified bok choy imported from Vietnam, because that's not where they can make a lot of money. They won't invade N. Korea ( nothing to loot there ) so they will never modified foreign imported food. Instead they will invade Iran due to rich oil and more profitable results. You got the picture?

This is an exciting time for the millions of unemployed in the State. 62,000 new jobs available to workers starving for a job.

PLEASE strike. PLEASE strike. Opportunities to create new 62,000 job s like this one don't come along every day.

With 17% real unemployment, PRAY that ALL the State's Unions will go on strike.

LOL. Although I praise your practical approach but replacing these strikers with other people would mean back to the same unemployment status. You got the job but the existing strikers would file for unemployment. Are we playing the "switch n Awe" war stragegy?
