Stupid idiots, y'all are. Farmers are what keep this country alive. Haha, I guess you think the world will end the 21st too? Lmao
Shut up jackass. Its people like you that encourage stupidity and blindness to reality and logic. Farmers are paying more now then ever for pesticides and weed Control on GMO crops that were supposed to put a end to "spraying and crop dusters". Because of GMOs, we now have weeds and insects that can only be killed by incredible amounts of spraying. GMOs have failed in every way imaginable, not to mention the lives Monsanto has ruined and the generations of farmers it has ended via its army of Patent Lawyers.

PS: I'm not sure if you've ever left the City Limits of Douglas but if you have, you'd know that most farmers around here only grow the staple cash crops, Corn, Cotton and Soybeans. 95% of South Georgia Cotton goes to China. If anybody owes local Farmers a big thank you, its the Chineese.

Actually, the vast majority of pesticide pollution comes from runoff from lawns.
Oh jesus, you sound like a DOW Rep. 85% of the population doesnt apply chems to their yard so that bs math just doesnt add up.

Ive worked in the farmering sector for years. In the South I still see Farmers burning off their Chemical jugs in their fields. If people knew who absolutely stupid some of these people where, they'd be on the phone with the USDA and the EPA turning people in.

<quoted text>you can't go back!! Just this week I was made aware of the fact that roundup is in the actual corn you plant. So many were Tired of the spray killing the plants,they engineered the corn kernel with the roundup in it. Also saw where the rice has the most arsenic in it.
Arsenic is naturally occuring in Brown Rice but you are correct about the Roundup Ready stuff. Monsanto has literally woven Roundup into the genetics of the GMO Corn, so you are in fact injesting Round Up every time you eat GMO Corn.

USDA Organic and or products labeled with the "No GMOs" seal are your best way to avoid that stuff.

The Huffington Post is a liberal rag do not read it if the truth matters to you. I have applied pesticides my entire life getting a much stronger dose than 99.9 % of the population and eat whatever I want. 60 yoa and have not seen a doctor in over ten years. You liberals need to go back to worrying about gay rights and taxing the shit out of the working man and not your mythical silent spring.
Hi. So I read your post and was mystified by your comment. By turning a issue about Health and Science into a Liberal Conspiracy you are circumventing the truth, and in its place insurting visions of gay butt sex, aborted fetuses, all the things that make make Southern Christian folks want to kill liberals. Well done.

Sadly, the Fox News method of planting thoughts and seeds didn't work in this past Presidential election and as the evidence mounts (from behind), neither will the issue of GMOs and well, reality in general.

The current model for Farming is failing. The Farmers that I know that don't take Government Hand-outs/Farmer Entitlements are losing the battle to keep their farms. The cost of Chemicals and the fact that Companies like Monsanto are making it harder and harder to not purchase their products is driving them out of business and slowly poisoning the population.

Facts are facts. GMO Companies claim their products to be safe without providing anything in the way of scientific data, all awhile real world Science is starting to say the oppoosite. Farmers buy their products with the promise of lowered costs, only to find after a few years their Round Up Ready isn't working and they have doubled the cost of spraying for bugs because what used to work, isn't working anymore.

Fat Farmer, I hope life continues to be kind to you and you remain Healthy until you pass on. But please remember this, not everything is about politics but there are MANY folks that want it to be.
