    The anti science rhetoric is just as pervasive as anything that comes form the right. The only real difference is the right doesn't hold itself up as the defenders of science when they attack science.

    Are GMO foods safe? Opponents are skewing the science to scare people. - Slate Magazine

    Global warming is real. Man-made warming is not. It's called Earths cycle. It happens consistently since the beginning. We are just able to track it now. Can't wait for the Gore cronnies to say something about that!

    Enjoy that GMO corn with the insectide in it, it won't harm you at all, it's FDA approved!

    Just like McDonalds is!

    All corn has insecticide in it, even completely organic natural corn.

    Please post a link to an article that says "non GMO natural corn contains insecticide".

    Are you actually that stupid? If there were no natural pesticides and insecticides in plants they would all be eaten before we got a chance.
