Has the Anti-GMO worm turned… more?

Back in April, I wrote in a post called Anti-GMO…crazier  than I thought  The anti-GMO movement is in a bad place. While they still con people into buying their lies and nonsense, a subtle shift has occurred. Opinion is beginning to turn against them. Mainstream media has been casting a much more skeptical eye and various lefty/green writers have either changed their minds or at least Read More →

The “But Johnny does it” argument of GMO labeling

I’ve written about this before, but since it has been brought up by my candidate Bernie Sanders, I think it is time to revisit it. Because other countries do something means we should do it is a stupid argument, plain and simple. The response to this is the age-old mother’s retort, If Johnny jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge, would you do it too? Let’s look Read More →

Are GMO activists junkies?

We’ve all seen these types of images illustrating anti-GMO articles One major thing pops out of these images. The process of GMO is not done with syringes. It’s a stupid illustration.  If I were to write an article about organic food, this would actually be more accurate than those images Now here’s a thought that was humorously brought up in a Facebook thread. Where do they Read More →

Lying scumbags and dipshits: Frustration has its limits

Recently, in a Facebook post, I exasperatingly wrote: I don’t know if I can do it anymore. I can’t stand going to comment sections and seeing the same bullshit time and time again. I think it’s time to leave it to the pros. I have nothing but contempt and derision for the Hirschbergs, Robinsons and GMOFreeUSAs. They are nothing more than lying scumbags and those Read More →

GMOFreeUSA and their pals love their autocrats

UPDATE: This is an update of a post I did on 6/13/2014. I felt it needed to be posted again, since I just found another authoritarian country the antis love, Gambia. Since the Anti-GMO movement doesn’t have the facts or real science their side, they hitch their wagon to anybody or anything that promotes their cause no matter how illegitimate. When they’re not doing that Read More →

Why do we have to pay more to eat local?

 I grew up above the grocery store my dad owned in a small town in northeast Pennsylvania. Most of our stuff was local. We’re talking 1960s. Steigerwalt brought his eggs.  The Lehigh Valley Dairy* and Zimmerman’s gave us milk and orangeade and iced tea. They were local. The meat came from the various meat-packing houses like A&B and Swift’s, while being national and regional companies, Read More →

Is Chipotle anti-GMO’s worst nightmare?

Earlier this month I wrote this: mainstream media has been casting a much more skeptical eye and various lefty/green writers have either changed their minds or at least taking less strident anti stances and are willing to be a little more open-minded.  Then came Chipotle’s major announcement of their decision to jettison GMO “ingredients.” All of a sudden, the cracks in the dam widened. The Read More →

Anti-GMO dumbasses invade NPR

There seems to be a belief that National Public Radio’s audience is educated, well informed and smart. If the comments in response to an article, The Danger Of GMOs: Is It All In Your Mind? is any indication, that belief seems to be in misguided. Or, maybe its just that the dumbass antis have invaded.  My hope is that it’s the latter. Here are a few comments Read More →

History is elusive to the true believing Organicker

  … And in places like Mooney’s Market circa 1920 and 1939, Palmerton, Pa. To whom do these simpletons think farmers sold their food?       Then there’s these two excerpts from an 1872 book by Daniel Mc Cabe, Lights and Shadows of New York Life With the first light of dawn, and frequently long before the darkness has passed away, the market farmers and Read More →

Neil Young picks wrong poster child for corporate villainy

Last night I spent a little over an hour experiencing severe cognitive dissonance. I attended a screening of Neil Young’s The Monsanto Years: A Work in Progress. It was a documentary of the making of his new album which is due to be released in June. I was filled with dread as I waited in line to go in the IFC Center theater. What could Read More →
