Gary Ruskin of USRTK channels Richard Nixon

” I mean, I want it implemented on a thievery basis. Goddamn it, get in and get those files. Blow the safe and get it.”–Richard Nixon  In 1946, when Richard Nixon first ran for Congress he used smear tactics to insinuate his opponent Democrat Jerry Voorhis had Communist ties because he had once been endorsed by the pro-labor CIO-PAC. In 1950 in his bid for the Senate, Read More →

The Belligerent Bullying of Public Scientist Dr. Kevin Folta

There’s a guy, Jeff Holiday, whose videos I watch on the Youtubes. He’s a member of a GMO Facebook group I belong to. He’s a sciency type skeptic and one smart cookie except he has those nose things. I hate those. For some reason they creep me out, especially on women. Anyway, he did a video in which he hits the nail on head regarding the Read More →

Desperation in the anti-GMO cult

It was just a matter of time before the antis found a “smoking gun” to bring down their worst nightmare, the affable and effective science communicator Dr. Kevin Folta. Gary Ruskin, hired* hit man for the anti-gmo and anti-vax Organic Consumers Association filed all kinds of FOIAs to uncover the nefarious links between university scientists and industry. He found it in the fact that Folta Read More →

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 →
