"They also have no problem letting Monsanto sue them when their fields get crossed contaminated by GMO pollen blowing in the wind. Then these small farms get buried in legal fees."

In Europe these companies just switched to natural food rather than label. That will happen here.

Another example: Minimum wage and the negative impact raising it has on the people that politicians say they want to help.

The 1,000-page bill that Senators Debbie Stabenow and Pat Roberts are pushing through the Senate is chock full of massive spending, new entitlements, and new regulations. With corporate welfare and generous subsidies thrown in for good measure, the bill reflects everything wrong with out-of-control government. No wonder Congress is sporting a 17...
