Comment Re:Long-term damage from the Bush Admin (Score 1) 176

The two "fairly liberal" justices Bush replaced were the ultraconservative Chief Justice Rehnquist and the fairly conservative O'Connor. Since this was a 6-3 ruling with Obama appointee Sotomayor in the majority, I'm not too sure either of them would have voted differently if they were still there, and I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have made a difference if they did.

I knew before I ever clicked on my RSS feed that this would be a kdawson article. If Slashdot is going to post unscientific claptrap, shouldn't Taco hire a young earther just to balance it out a little? There is an ecological argument to be made against biodiversity reduction caused by GM crops, and there is an argument to be made that Monsanto as a company is particularly evil, although it took considerable government intervention to get that way. But there is no legitimate argument at all regarding individual safety. If you refuse to eat GM food for non-political reasons you're not overly fussy. You're an ignorant crank.
