i agree that we already have this information, in some respect (though, granted, not fully, and perhaps far from). all the same, the non-gmo project and organic route is a very blossoming and promising start, and there are so many of these products available, even at fred meyer, that one can easily buy complete, healthy meals while sticking to either / both of these routes. let's vote by purchasing / promoting the non-gmo and organic products, not by coming in the back door and throwing warning labels on everything else. or, just shop at whole foods and new seasons, the former of which has shown a rapid trend toward greater affordability [http://goo.gl/RwPldK] ~ hello, competition and more supply of non-gmos and organics! ~ and a commitment to 'full GMO transparency' by 2018 [http://goo.gl/9OYWaJ].
Definitely not worth it, but I probably shouldn't have run backwards w/o pants through the entire maze.
We should probably remove nutrition facts too, because if people know how much fat is in their food they may choose to buy something with less fat. War on fatty foods!
It's ridiculous that someone would ever choose to be less informed about something. Give us the labeling, give us the information.
Yeah, we looked at the cost issue and it came up in our endorsement interview. I'm sure there might be some kind of increase, but I wasn't swayed that it would be huge. I can safely say that cost *wasn't* one of the factors that kept us from swinging toward a yes.
The problem with saying that GMOs are safe is that we then have to believe that the FDA and Monsanto will actually do their jobs and provide us with safe foods. Too bad that's a completely bullshit position that isn't backed up by evidence.
If the FDA can't keep arsenic out of chicken, how can we trust them to keep crazy (10 years down the line) hormone affecting side-effects out of our food? Or remember that time that the FDA allowed BPA in consumer food products for 60 years? That was great too.
I personally think most GMOs are safe and see no problem with them, but you're asking us to trust the competence of an organization that has been seen to be actively incompetent.
I'm sure the comments on this endorsement will remain nice and calm.
I heard a lot of worry about price hikes for Oregon-only relabeled products. Did you find anything on that in your research?
And thanks for this. I have mixed feelings too, but I really resented the implication from the Yes on 92 petitioners I talked to that their friends at, say, Ben & Jerry's (/Unilever) didn't have anything to gain from forcing their competitors to relabel their products. GMOs may seem shadowy, but they're a lhell of a lot more transparent than most corporations.
My theory: Bob was upset because he got bitten, or at least scratched. That was one last goodbye kiss with Sasha. Buuuuuut, maybe he got bitten on the leg Gareth was munching on. Is zombieism transmittable through eating cooked flesh? Wait and see, I guess.
We found (7) i-phones, (1) i-pad, a purse, and a wallet with $140 in it, so yeah, it was worth it.
Walking Dead does season premiere's well. As for this episode ... Walking Dead does season premiere's well.

Isn't there a mourning and gnashing of teeth app this poor bereaved soul could click on to? I know when I went to work I didn't like any interruptions whatsoever from my fulfilling and fun-filled dumpy cubicle job.
I like how angry this makes you. Yes, crazy blinking lights are annoying. Calm down about it.
Remember when humans were thought of as the most adaptable creatures on the planet?
This is yet another example of how we're quickly reversing that perception.
It's been 1 day (approximately 2hrs more like it).
Just breathe. You'll be ok.
