    As far as the topic at hand - GMO foods have been around for decades. The effects of GMO's do not show up overnight. I'm not keen on a company like Monsanto telling me that its GMO products are safe for me. Who pays into their research and who would benefit the most?

    I do agree with you that we are all responsible one way or another for our fellow human (and animal) companions, but that does not mean that we sally forth with flags waving to promote GMO's and to negate other ways to provide fuel for the continuing growth in the world population.

    I believe that the topics of food, energy, and other resources do not belong labeled as conservative vs. liberal. It doesn't matter what one believes; in the end these topics will end up (and are already) affecting everyone regardless of political slant.

    People die because the world selectively determines who receives the best resources and who does not. All the GMO food in the world will not feed the starving peoples in third world countries; the issue is working around the world to provide the best leadership so that people of all walks of life can live sustainable lives.

    I find it repulsive that any person would think that is it fine to let people die when not by their own choice (such as right to die supporters).

    I think your theory is very interesting. I take exception, though, to your description of the two women. So you rode around with an American and a Belgian woman. I'm left wondering whether "ladies" don't work and also why you think that lesbians are "needless to say, ...uber-liberal." Some are conservative; they're just not dickmatized.

    I have never met a lesbian who is conservative.

    Not at all... not if done intelligently. Easy.

    My guess is you have a problem with lesbians.
    I don't think he had any ill intent by mentioning that one of the women was a lesbian. The only problem that seems to exist is that he didn't explain why the fact that she is a lesbian is important enough to mention.

    Not only is your mind closed but you are sitting on the lid.

    The fact that she is a lesbian seems to have nothing to do with the story AND he just described the other one by where she was from and he repeated calling her a lesbian strongly suggests to me he has a problem with lesbians.

    Why on Earth would someone who has zero problem with them describe someone as a lesbian but their friend just as anyone else?
