We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

Unfortunately, they aren't content to focus on what THEY eat, they want to dictate to the entire world what we can eat, too.
Judging by the response to my review of the book, Slow Death by Rubber Duck on a booksite, there are many, many of these psychotics. Slow Death, (the secret danger of everyday things) is written by two "environmentalist journalists" who worship at the alter of Rachel Carson and want to warn you of the dangers of everything in your house including plastics (That contain BPA!) in water bottles, shower curtains, CD cases, fire resistant clothing for children, the mercury in tuna, the cancer causing side effects of pesticides on modern crops...... Yet I don't think they are living in a cave high up in the Himalaya's isolating themselves away from danger! or even growing their own food because they know how to do it better. Or any food for that matter.
And judging by the responses to my review that call this book junk science and a hysterical screed of ideology by the 2 members of the watermelon party, not many other people have critical thinking skills or understand what exactly, the scientific method actually involves. I thought they taught this in 6th grade science.
We live in a relatively safe world, and our nature as humans is to survive, because we are still animals.
When (some of us) become bored and unchallenged by our spoiled existence, one has to INVENT monsters to fight. It's not just a testosterone thing as it effects women too. It exhibits itself in different forms; sportsmoms and dads that go crazy on sidelines food babes, adrenaline junkies.
Unfortunately, too many humans carry the predisposition for being dictators.
GMO: There are monsters all right. Remember, these shetards are the sort of folks who would look the other way while children went blind or suffered from malnourishment because the solution, Golden Rice, was not approved.
