Wood Prairie Farm: All that’s wrong with the organic movement

I recently came across a project on Indiegogo that wanted to help a family organic farm in Maine build a repair shed for the farm equipment. Now this sounds like a worthwhile cause. Is it? Here is the video. Watch it and see if anything sounds off to you. I will explain the problems I have with it.  Yes, I am going after a small family farm. …

California Democratic Party joins the anti-science crowd

Democrats and the liberal/left love to make fun of the Republicans for their anti-science nonsense and ignorance. So, what do you make of the California Democratic Party's endorsement of Prop. 37, the one that calls for labeling of GMO foods? What is show's is that the liberal/left have no more brains when it comes to science than their rightist c…

Child’s coloring book too complicated for anti-gmo crowd

Recently Monsanto put out a coloring book for children explaining what biotechnology is. Some people have a problem with that. One of those people expressing concern is a columnist Christine G.K. LaPado-Bregliafor who writs for the Chico California newspaper, the Chico News Review. In her column Keeping up with Monsanto, she writes, "the book is f…

Organic farm animals treated like organic farm workers

Organic advocates feel good about themselves when they buy organic foods. They believe they are helping the small farmer, (not necessarily so) the environment (matter of debate) and how humanely the animals are treated.

Let’s put creationism to a vote

GMO labeling supporter doesn’t want his products labeled.

One of the big talking points by anti-GMO advocates is if GMO products are safe, why are companies afraid to label them? Well, apparently what's good for the GMO goose is not good for the anti-GMO gander. Senator Richard Durbin of Illinois introduced an amendment to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Safety and Innovation Act which would requ…

Dance teacher to give expert opinion on GMOs to Conn. Assembly

Jeffrey Smith, who I've written about before, is scheduled to speak before the Connecticut Assembly's GM Labeling Task Force on August 8th. The task force should rescind this offer. Instead, they should have actual scientists testify. They should at least have scientists testify as a counterbalance to his nonsense. This is getting ridiculous. Fra…

Should organic foods be labeled, “May contain E.coli or Salmonella?”

Much has been made about the California's right-to-know GMO labeling law. Supporters cite bogus science and discredited studies to bolster their view and dismiss any opponents of the law as paid shills of Monsanto. Many backers of the bill hope this is step one in getting GMOs banned altogether. But, in the 16 years GMO products have been on the …
