I think that's the one that was proven to have false data.

I agree with this, but blanket dismissal of all GMO crops is not the answer.

They are the same thing. Just because it's done in a lab instead of a greenhouse doesn't make it different or bad. I do think there needs to be better testing, transparency, and oversight to ensure no problems occur.
To them, it's not illegal or unethical if it supports their agenda or opposes people they disagree with. The sad part is the idiot sheeple who fall for this garbage.
I buy my own health plan through my own sole proprietor business. Yes, you can be a "small group of 1" when buying group health insurance. I have chronic health issues, so I buy a high-end plan that will actually save me money. Cheap premiums and a high deductible don't make sense when you have to use your health care with any frequency, so high premiums with no deductibles and co-insurance is actually cheaper for me. But, O-Bysmal-Care classifies this as a "Cadillac" plan and will penalize me with a 40% excise tax. Just because a few of the hated class of the wealthy have such plans, those of us who actually need them get smacked down as well. Never mind we heavy healthcare users already shoulder the brunt of these "reforms", like the new taxes on medical devices and drug development (who do they thing uses these things, if not the ill or injured who already pay the most?)
The independent contractor rules are completely ridiculous. They make it nearly impossible for people to work in a manner they choose. Proponents of these rules like to claim that they prevent companies from abusing workers and avoiding taxes, but the reality is that they were brought about by union influence to limit competition against union workers. I work as a contractor in the software industry and usually have to use a middleman like a staffing firm because companies are afraid to take on the IRS and these rules. This means the middleman gets a cut and the cost of employing me goes up which leads to more outsourcing due to expensive domestic labor costs. People should be free to work in the manner they choose. It's time to kill the unfair union influences.

GMO, in and of itself, is not a bad thing. It's just taking the same selective crossbreeding to a higher level. We do, however, need to have enough oversight to ensure that these products are safe and won't lead to other problems. Blanket dismissal of GMO is just as bad as blanket acceptance.
To the liberal mind, nothing is illegal or unethical as long as it supports the "progressive" agenda or targets its opponents.
Well, a lack of jobs will occur if you didn't plan ahead. If you need to go into debt to get your degree, make sure it's in a career field that actually has jobs available, like engineering or computer science. DO some work-study or interning if you can while studying. If you don't have access to those, do some projects on your own and put them online to show potential employers when you graduate. Above all, don't just expect jobs to fall into your lap because you got that piece of paper.
Seems to me like they're trying to make up reasons for hatred against the successful and stir up more class warfare envy and resentment without even a shred of proof. Sadly, the low-information sheep... err, voters... buy into it without digging any deeper than the sensationalized headlines and sound bites. It's sad that so many get their "news" via these sources and take this blather as gospel. I suppose it's what we can expect from people who think Honey Boo-boo is good entertainment.
