Man I was having such a good day today at work.

There I was, being all kickass at my job, and SOMEHOW the topics of organics and GMOS came up. I am so for GMOs its not even funny - organics, hey, but what you want but don't try to take away my options. Also, don't tell starving kids in India what to eat while they're dying? Follow those two rules and all will be well.

Man, I had no idea. These are people who work for the government, and it was liked I whipped out a baby and started to slaughter it in front of them. I didn't state my opinion, I just appeared neutral, but I was angry inside. How can these people profess for being about knowledge and the cutting edge, but believe that pesticides don't wash off of food? And that " We don't know enough about it to eat it" while eating cheese?! In front of me?!

I'm still mad, and have to go back to work tomorrow. I hate being a pot smoking skeptic sometimes, I feel like a damn unicorn.

To be fair, the GMO industry is filled with revolting practices and has it's hand so far up the US gov.'s ass that we may as well give our tax money directly to them, so I can see how it could be a sensitive issue.

Unless you're saying that rather than the sketchy, not fully controlled megacorp GMO situation we currently have, they're totally against all forms of genetic modification in food. in which case, fuck them hippies.

As always, the truth lies. SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE.

But more towards the "fuck hippies" side than the "monsanto is hitler" side.

True. But honestly, they're just corporations like all the others. What does Monsanto do that's so much more evil than Dow, j&j, Exxon, apple, google, etc. In comparison to those corporations, I'd say that Monsanto is generally better for humanity. But I'm Well aware of the evil monsanto does. And I use shit from those corporations in a daily basis (assuming xserves actually have some kind of marketshare these days)

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the whole "GMO seeds blew into my farm and now Monsanto is suing me" thing has never happened. If you can find a case where it has, I'd be happy to see it and admit fault.

IMO, GMO's can be good, but bigass evil corporations can be pretty good. I'm much more worried about what millions of gallons of roundup are doing to soil microbes than I am about anything the roundup immune plants are causing.

You know what the GMO labeling thing did to crop markets in European nations? It caused consumers to falsely believe that if a food product had a GMO label that it proves that it was bad despite it passing all the oridinary inspections and reguiations nations enact. You know who were the bad guys in this? It wasn't GMO corps. It was so-called "small farmers" tactic to destroy their competition while at the same time charge much more for the same exact food. Making a bundle on peoples gullibility. The big evil corporation here is the "organic" market fooling people into paying more for the same product. Good job ya dunce.

Roundup is less toxic than the herbicides they were using before. It's also pretty easily eliminated from the food supply during rinsing.

Good point about soil ecology.

Don't forget that companies like Monsanto are completely happy with the current GMO hate.

It just means that they have a monopoly position, because Monsanto can just set up an experimental farm in South-America and protect it with armed guards, while starting GMO companies have to do their experimental farms in the Western world and have fucking anti-GMO protesters (that may or may not be funded by Monsanto and other big companies) with bulldozers trashing their farms and send fucking bombs, bullet letters and mysterious powders to personnel and geneticists. Hell, people just doing research at universities without any profit gaining are getting death threats.
