FYI: Nixon’s health care plan 1974

Compare and contrast Nixon's plan to the ones the Republican ghouls in Congress are trying to enact. It is interesting to note that although his plan was similar to Obamacare, Democrats refused to help enact it. Led by Ted Kennedy, they were insisting on a payroll tax-funded national insurance plan. Rather than compromise and look to enact their…

My review of the GMO doc Food Evolution

I saw this doc about a year ago, so I'm going from memory. Forgive me if I get some things wrong. Adamchak & Nye is the name of a San Francisco detective agency. That's Raoul Adamchak and Bill Nye. The two are partners, but Raoul doesn't like Bill much. A mysterious woman, who goes by the name of Miss Malkan walks into their office. By nightfa…

Time to sue the anti-GMO bastards

Anti-GMO groups like USTRK and the Organic Consumers Association have long been getting away with libel, slander and defamation of honest scientists.  It's time to fight back. I've never understood why people like Kevin Folta et al haven't hit back. I've heard all kinds of things like the cost of a lawsuit etc. Nonsense. It doesn't cost that mu…

Trump the criminal and his hero and mentor, the demonic Roy Cohn.

This is an updated post that originally appeared on 1/25/17 It should come as no surprise that Trump has an attraction to evil leaders like Putin, Dtuerte of the Philippines and and Erdogan of Turkey.  The man who Wayne Barrett called  the personification of evil,  Roy Cohn was Trump's hero.

Organic Consumer’s Association issues “threat” to Congress.

Just when you thought the crazies over at the Organic Consumer's Association (OCA) couldn't get more goofy, they have warned Congress that if the they pass any amendment that would "preempt or nullify any state GMO labeling law" they will work to recall candidates or support their opponents in the next election. What has their organic hemp pan…

Latest anti-gmo study: More bullshit.

This is getting ridiculous. More anti-gmo nonsense science showing the harmful effects of gmos. It's called  A long-term toxicology study on pigs fed a combined genetically modified (GM) soy and GM maize diet. I hesitate to link to the study because I don't want to give them the traffic. I was also going to summarize factually why this study i…

Norman Borlaug and Vandana Shiva were walking along a beach…

Norman Borlaug* and Vandana Shiva were walking along a beach when they came upon a bottle. Borlaug reached down, picked it up and opened it. A genie appeared and thanked them for releasing him. He was so grateful that he offered to grant the two any wish they wanted. He turned to Borlaug and asked him what he wanted. Borlaug didn't miss a beat an…

Connecticut legislature makes anti-science history

Today's post is a version of an op-ed that was quickly and roundly rejected by the Hartford Courant with a curt,  No Thanks, response. The Connecticut legislature made history recently when it overwhelmingly approved a gmo labeling bill. They made history by giving credibility to the anti-science views of crackpots, frauds, and charlatans. …

March against Monsanto: NYC version

First off, if you're going to have a protest about how we're all being poisoned, you need to have it led by healthy, well-fed, good-looking people. Second, you need music and what better music to have than the Occupy Wall Street All-No-Star Band with special guest, Zuccotti Park Sax Guy. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fX4yw4eMnmI?rel=0…
