As long as there is no conclusive science telling us where all the 'modern' diseases (cancer, cardiovascular, diabetes) are coming from, to me the correlation with the introduction of processed and chemically grown, and even GMO, foods is too strong to state that the choice to fear GMO's (and processed food) is 'superstitious'.

That's why my opinion is that everyone has the right to choose for 'organic' food, and to demand also labeling of the same.

Comment Re:Hate targeted at Elop (Score 4, Insightful) 409

If any hate is spewing, is targeted against the ex M$ bigwig Elop which brew this destructive strategy.

As pointed out above, it was the board that was already decided at ditching the previous CEO and hiring Elop/MS instead.
Now, as Dilbert has pointed out, this was a strategic move of sheer genius, with which MS has realised three very strategic goals:
1. Windows phone introduced in the market,
2. Nokia, the biggest competitor for their own phone hardware sales ambitions has been crushed,
3. Linux as OS for the mobile phone has been disabled.
Luckily, there is still the Jolla (currently connection time out) initiative with Tizen.

The grand question: How did the Nokia board get played up so much by Microsoft?

...describes the areas and extent to which the federation's authorities supersede the state's.
As this is a state's ballot, it is in the state's legislature that anonymity has to be arranged.
Even more where the federal government hasn't gotten the authority over state ballots.

So, I think the judge was right, although I'm also very surprised by the fact that anonymity in ballots is not guaranteed.

"Disturbing the peace" pretty much every municipality has a law for it

I didn't ask about disturbing the peace, I asked if arguing could land you in prison. For me that's something totally different.
To quote webster .com:

argue verb \är-()gyü\ - intransitive verb
1 : to give reasons for or against something : reason
2 : to contend or disagree in words : dispute
