Senate Republicans Block More Obama Nominees

Senate Republicans Block More Obama Nominees

Commented Dec 10, 2013 at 08:25:40 in Politics

“Democrats have NEVER gone to the same obstructionist extremes the Republicans have...and even when they play a little dirty, it's only some doing what many Republicans did many years ago. Yes, "I only killed 2 puppies while the others killed 50 puppies" is weak argument, but there's still a bit of difference there.”

“Some of these are just stupid. Why would it try to autocomplete "butt" or "panty" when "but" and "pant" are valid words, "Tampax" when "Tampa" is a valid name (though many names starting with a capital letter aren't attempted to be autocompleted anyway), and why would "STI" or "LSAT" try to be autocompleted when they are such short acronyms?”

“More people identifying as gay IS news in that helps increase acceptance (except among the extremely bigoted whose unreasonable hatred can likely never be quashed except by dying out). So many people still don't get that...and that it's not just some meaningless boasting or something. I guess I do know a few who like to boast about it, though. ;-)”

“I suppose so, Steve. I still feel that "A man is Gay" is a weird sort of national news story - a bit like saying "A man is left-handed!" A "So what?" story...”

“All restaurants and many other businesses should consider the same policy against such annoying, self-important and pretentious people. Many do have policies against photographing or video recording either at all or outside of your personal space, and with smartphones and other devices, you can tell when they might be being used inappropriately, but not so w/ Google Glass. And no, PRIVATE businesses are not "out in public."”

“You apparently missed the unexpected part. If something is expected to fling stuff out faster than something else can pull it in, it's unknown why until they can study it further to find an explanation. Science is about figuring out why, not making simple assumptions (even if some ideas may starts as simple assumptions, which then need to be proven to at least be verified as plausible).”

“They need absolute proof that something's bad before they ban or require labelling. There's nothing stopping the producers who don't include certain ingredients some consider bad from labelling theirs as not having them, though (e.g. no HFCS, non-GMO, no (added) MSG, no BVO)...they just can't claim (or imply too strongly) that their product is better for you because of it.”

“Diabetes in the US population is wildly out of control and soda is a smoking gun, among other poor quality carbohydrates. All the cheap food in the supermarkets is making people ill. Better to pay a bit more and eat less. I know the article is not a PLoS ONE article, but it does the job to educate those who trust that if it's [food] offered at a supermarket, it must be good for you.”

“Is it OK for me to ask a food producer to label something as having been touched by a Southern Baptist or not? Scientifically, there shouldn't be an issue with that, but I still feel strongly otherwise and have too many doubts.”

pmag88 on Nov 6, 2013 at 16:13:47

“Personally, I like it when I see something that says Kosher on it because while it may not necessarily be a sure sign of quality, it certainly is a good indicator. Same thing with Amish food.

The point here is, if labeling is good for marketing, why would a companies like Monsanto and others be so resistant to using it rather than avoiding it?

There are many scientists who have issue's with GMO and while the argument that it's the next logical step in the evolution of selective breeding is being made, the way Monsanto hdecided to conduct much of their work is a big part of why people don't trust them or the products.

If Monsanto and the industry in general can find ways to prove the science and incorporate creative marketing rather than resorting to heavy handed behind the scenes manipulation, perhaps they will gain more favor. At that point, the label, as with any label, would be a positive way to market the product.

I believe that food which was developed over thousands of years to grow in specific climates and provides very desirable qualities should be studied and then marketed as specialty foods. We need a more diverse food market that provides a living for native farmers who create products that no one argues aren't desirable.

We have much to learn from the past but sadly some want to bury the rich history and the work of many centuries and replace that with monoculture.”
