Comment Re:GM producers are shooting themselves in the foo (Score 1) 513

You've just answered your own question. If there is no difference, there is no truth in advertising issue, sot he FTC won't do anything. Whether there is a difference or not, I really can't say and I don't avoid GMO myself, and not preachy about GMO.

My concern is the the fact that some people ARE concerned, and simply have the right to know if itis GMO or not. The controversy and lack of long term science means people have the right to choose, but can only do so if they have information. Technically, that is what the FTC should be fore, but they tend to be spineless when it comes to stuff like this.

"They might".

They also might not care until there are enough complaints, and there is almost no way to tell if something labeled "Non-GMO" really is, and if there is no current law on it, doing so in seemingly good faith has no consequences. Plus, it is doubtful any government agency is going to go out and look for extra work. Don't hold your breath on the FTC doing anything.

I agree. Furthermore, I'm confused about "laws" regarding ownership. In the future, if I take my ship and go to asteroid xyz, mine it, use the materials in space, is some government or corporation going to sue me because they somehow had technical ownership but no ability to get there? The idea of any government or world government regulating a space object that it has no ability to visit is pure comedy.

Just like in days of yore, you can't claim it if you can't stick your flag in it.

No, I'm still in a "Red" State.

And I don't look like Scott Ian, honestly I was kind of trying to go more for this look. Hence the "What?" in the JE...

But I don't look much like him, the goatee is more grey than blonde and my eyes are brown, not blue.

Lost my job, found a new one. Grew a goatee and shaved my head bald. (What?)
Also moved over 1000 miles away from DFW.

Just finally getting settled, waiting to get my CHL from my new home state.

I've got a bad feeling about this.
