The only reason the "jury is still out" is that there are those who refuse to accept the results of studies and research debunking the claims of the anti-GMO crowd. For these people, no amount of proof will ever be enough.

Straw man argument. I'm not against all government regulation. If I was, I would be an anarchist, not a conservative. As far as not knowing my history and my view of economics, you're entitled to your opinion, but - here's a shock - I don't happen to agree with you.

Yeah, Pat. I give thanks every day for the EPA, which is nothing more than a political weapon for presidents to wield in order to bully industries and state governments into complying with whatever goofy federal energy policies are fashionable at any given moment. Interesting take on Nixon's economic policies, which were nothing more than recycled Keynesian ideas and failed utterly to combat inflation. The wisdom (or folly) of abandoning the gold standard is debated to this day. Reflect on his accomplishments? Sorry, what I remember best is a politician who became isolated and paranoid about losing power - a disease all too common in Washington.
I assume you're talking about the guy in Topeka some time back. One nut case 2 or 3 years ago does not make the case for "conservatives threatening and murdering abortion doctors." C'mon, SF - is that all you've got?
And here is a quote from that article: "There is no available scientific evidence from controlled studies in humans that cannabinoids can cure or treat cancer." The article discusses marijuana and THC extracts where some studies have shown possible beneficial effects with regard to appetite restoration, pain control, and alleviating nausea. There is also some minimal evidence of cancer cell growth inhibition in laboratory experiments, but nothing in humans. In short, wishful thinking.

Besides the folks at the organic food store (who I'm sure have conducted extensive scientific research into this) can you offer any legitimate, independent, peer-reviewed studies that arrive at a conclusion that would verify that, ..."this junk is no dam good?" I've offered that challenge before on other discussion areas, and have never gotten a response besides links to organic food industry blogs or websites. What Norris fails to understand is that the government isn't much interested in regulating something where there's no credible scientific evidence that it's in any way harmful.
Several have. The problem is that any effort to repeal has to pass not only the House (probable), but the Democrat-controlled Senate where it's unlikely it could even get off Harry Reid's desk to come up for a vote. Even if by some miracle it passed both House and Senate, Obama would veto it. If all it took was for someone to "demand" it be repealed, it would have been gone long ago, but it's not quite that simple.
The same idiot basement dwellers that constantly opine as to how the world should operate, and how wonderful things would be if only we would listen to the wisdom they've gained in pursuit of their worthless cultural studies degrees and perusing the opinion pages of Salon and HuffPo.

I wonder when some of these young women will begin to rebel at borrowing thousands of dollars in student loans to pay for the privilege of cultivating hairy pits - something they could have stayed home and done for free.
Do we really need to blacklist this bunch? I mean, do any of them even have legitimate careers anymore or are they just living off royalties?
And the reason they're not ashamed - none of these people nor their minions have the slightest concept of what a lie is, since they have no concept of the truth. To a liberal, truth is whatever they happen to be saying at any given moment.
