The scientists that published that just must not be up on their literature or the author is just confused and the scientists are trying to talk up their research.
When is the last time you negotiated prices at the grocery store?
Well since the Reddit is the one forking over the money, their proposed model doesn't match grocery shopping either: "When was the last time you got to the checkout register and refused to buy products until the merchant agreed to your pricing?"
Fuck Microsoft and fuck google. Why should they expect the public to fund a specialized skill set that makes them money.
Why should any employer want the school system to educate students to do anything useful? Heck, why are we funding education at all? By your argument, employers that want people to be able to keep books (add and subtract), or email (read and write) or treat patients (science) should be funding these things them selves. This is the same sort of BS circular logic people like to give as to why we shouldn't tax companies that depend on public infrastructure (since they just pass the costs onto customers anyway). Stop jerking your self off to Ann Rand and wake up!

THIS is exactly why I don't understand why there's even a debate about GMO labeling. Not that I'd waste my time fighting to add it to the labels as I care more about residual chemical levels than genes from another edible plant. Nonetheless, cloned in genes that were never part of the product before == adulterated product.
