Trying to redefine a popular phrase or word for the sole purpose of fooling the ignorant masses does not change the popular meaning, and that is all that is happening here. To anyone and everyone outside of the scientific community, GMO refers to the direct manipulation of genes, and cross and/or selective breeding are the breeding two compatible organisms, and has since the first gene splice was announced. All you are doing is trying to muddy the waters in the same way the corn industry are in trying to get HFCS to be included as sugar on food labels just to get people to eat their inferior, and oftentimes damaging product.
If you ask me, there is too little regulation on genetically engendered crops. Without long term studies, at least two generations, if not more, there is no way to know the long term effects on the human body and by the third or forth generation, it may be too late to reverse. Just look what the low fat, high carb, put HFCS in everything diet has done to us. You really think GM (or GE for the better informed) crops don't have the ability to screw us up even more?
I wake up with it or sometimes even taking the pill with some water causes reflux. So at this point water and and/or my stomach being empty causes reflux.
This is your stomach so accustomed to being full of hard to digest 'food' that it constantly overproduces acid, even when empty. I used to be the same way -- daily anti acid pills with a scattering of chewables here and there, and one right before bed to keep the night reflux in check. After my diet change I haven't had any problems at all. No more daily pills and I only need a chewable on occasion when I eat too many onions. I use less anti acids in a year than I used to in a week before.
By they way, a Pepcid Complete right before bed helped me in that situation. Until you get your stomach acid under control, you might give that a try.
Or, better yet, find out what's actually causing your stomach to produce excess acid and eliminate it from your diet. Oh, no. Can't do that, it's too hard and crap food is sooo fucking delicious you just have to eat it, and in excess to boot. Big brother parma will fix it.
This insane idea we have (fed to us by food industry marketing, no doubt) that we can eat what we want and let the pharmaceutical companies fix what we screw up with improper diets is going to continue to kill while funneling billions of our dollars directly into the bank accounts of big parma and the food industry.
Why do so many people risk their device on the absolute cheapest $2 charger from a no-name shop?
Because that's what's in the $2.00 bin next to the checkout at most stores, and most people see them and think "oh, I need a new and/or spare charger".
No. Taxes are only sheltered on income generated overseas, using overseas infrastructure, emergency services, etc. I am baffled why Americans believe they have a "right" to tax the sale of a product made in China and sold in France.
No one is saying they should be subject to sales tax, but income is income, and profits from a U.S. based company should be subject to U.S. taxes just as the foreign income of a U.S. citizen is subject to U.S income taxes. Any and all foreign taxes should be 100% deductible, but all profits after that should be subject to full U.S. taxes rates.
My idea of roughing it turning the air conditioner too low.
