On Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO)...

To my liberal friends:

There are plenty of reasons furiously oppose the pesticide spewing, herbicide belching, and fungicide farting, water table draining, soil depleting, animal torturing, antibiotic resistance fomenting, monocropping, colony collapsing, stench emitting, habitat destroying, planet roasting, poorly paying, immigration law mocking, dead zone creating, fossil fuel dependent, junk food hawking, mouth firmly attached to the government teat monstrosity that is Big Ag.

GMO is not one of them. If you are anti-GMO, you are wrong. Get over it, and move on. You are making the rest of us liberals look stupid.


That is all.

  1. I haven't really formed any strong opinions on GMO food, because I don't know enough.

    However, I have heard about lawsuits Monsanto has filed (and won) regarding "patent infringement" by farmers that use their products, purposefully or inadvertently. These suits related to saving seeds for use across multiple seasons, or harvesting seeds from your own crops (originally from Monsanto seeds or pollination, no matter how these products were procured).

    Now, if a contract was signed, that's one thing - contract infringement. But I'm sorry: If a plant you own makes a seed, you should be able to plant it without getting sued. If Monsanto is so worried about their patents, they should GM their plants to not make seeds, or make seeds that don't grow into new plants.
