Allow Golden Rice: A video appeal by environmentalist Patrick Moore

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8MCtVqmCoI8 Patrick Moore is one of the early members of Greenpeace. He left in the 1980s after he felt the organization had lost its way. In the last few years, he has come out in favor of GMOs and changed his stance on such issues as nuclear power. As proof the environmental movement is more like a cult rather…

Connecticut becomes the first scientifically illiterate state

The State of Connecticut has become the first state in the nation to be inducted into the Progressive Contrarian's Scientifically Illiterate Hall of Shame. The scientifically illiterate Connecticut legislature passed a mandatory GMO labeling law earlier this year and a smiling scientifically clueless governor, Dannel P. Malloy, made an appeara…

A Thanksgiving story of secret generosity

Thanksgiving is upon and I have been remiss in posting. So, I decided to drag out this 2010 column from the archives. It's from a previous incarnation. I figured since most of my posts are negative and how people are dumbasses and asshats, it might be nice to post something positive. It's a story that I had to write since it was a story that I thin…

Kickstarter campaign to build anti-GMO Scaredy Cat Town

The anti-gmo/organic crowd seems to be a bunch of 'fraidy cats. Corporations, gmos, pesticides, most of the modern world get them squealing like stuck pigs. Everything's giving us cancer and all kinds of other scary diseases. And because they feel impotent to stop it, they create scenarios where everyone is on the take and it's one big conspirac…

Scientifically Illiterate Hall of Shame

Trying to convince the anti-gmo crowd the method of genetically engineering food is safe, or as safe as anything can be, is a daunting task. In fact, it's like to trying to explain something to monkeys. Wait, let me retract that statement. Monkeys will eventually get it. But, the anti-gmo troops on the ground are one thing.  When our elected o…

From the archives: Why your kids are fat and sickly

The Nonsense Crowd has blamed GMOs for all modern illnesses and allergies despite any evidence to the contrary. Back in 2009 I wrote this when I was writing for the NY Examiner.  This was before GMO was on my radar. This was when I was really cranky. ----------------------- Hey, it was International Walk to School Day this week!  It’s a…

Anti-GMO movement are liars and a disgrace to progressive activism

Never in the history of progressive movements have so few lied to so many. That pretty much sums up the anti-gmo movement. It is the most dishonest, wretched and immoral movement to ever come out of the left. They traffic in lies, obfuscation, threats and violence. It used to be progressives, liberals and the left based their arguments on eviden…

NY State Assembly public hearing on GMO labeling was a farce.

This is a tough one. I'm not sure where to begin. I attended a show trial NY State Assembly public hearing on gmo labeling last Tuesday which was held at Lehman College in the Bronx. It was chock full of lies, bullying, nonsense and a pretend sense of balance. Basically it was a 3/12 hour farce disguised as a public hearing. The public hearing …
