yes i love it
Like I stated, you don't know what you stand for. You are just complaining about nothing and swerving no purpose.

Are you coming to bed?
I can't. This is important.

as far as amphetamines vs tomatoes - a little amphetamines when you're driving drunk can make the difference between getting home and spending the night in jail for falling asleep behind the wheel and driving into a wall.
the problem with GM foods is that there is no benefit to consumer except MAYBE lower cost. but if GM foods really cost less then people would buy them anyway - what does Monsanto have to fear ?
the very fact that Monsanto had to pay off people in FDA to avoid the label means that nobody would buy the crap with the label in place. that's the difference.
people know that alcohol and drugs are bad for them and they CHOOSE to use them anyway. but nobody CHOOSES to eat GM foods. that is the difference.

Now I don't know much about direct negative effects but the ecological damage such could do is obviously immense.

I'm better than this though.
OBL protested the "starving children of Iraq." He protested our presence in the region (especially Saudi Arabia), which escallated every time Hussein played his games. He protested many things, most of which were entirely exaggerated. But let's look at Hussein....
1) He invaded two neighboring countries and threatened stability in the oil rich region.
2) He continuously threatened his neighbors even as late as 2002 when he flew military jets over Saudi and Jordanian air space.
3) He defied the UN over and over again and kicked inspectors out repeatedly, which gave him the reputation that he can do anything and not even the U.S. could do anything about it.
4) He caused mass humanitarian crisis' within his borders before and long after the Gulf War causing us to either enter the country for humanitarian reasons or merely watch as if his "soveriegnty" mattered more than anything.
This was not a man to be simply left alone in a region where the entire world needs stability. And he was not a man we should have left in power causing us to dig deeper and deeper into the mess over the twelve years prior to 2003. You care about your fuel, but can't fathom the instability that would have come with Saddam Hussein freed in the region? Doing nothing was not an option.
Our greatest trades and business ties are with democratic nations. Our worst are with what we see in the Middle East. If we are to truly rid ourselves of the "excuses" that mad men look for to murder Americans then we have to address this region in which we are attached to. A democratic Iraq is quite possibly the last hope for this region to move forward beyond what it is today. The alternative is to watch a radical religiously fueled nuclear Middle East rise.
And what will that do to your gas prices? Instead of complaining about the smaller wars, maybe you should imagine the much larger ones we are trying to prevent. Just like we have done since WWII. Only now in the post Cold War we have the luxury of not enlisting dictators and religious monsters that will merely stab us in the back later.
1) Complaining about what in your food may be harmful to your body, but happily acknowledging drug use?
2) Complaining about Iraq not being about oil, but complaining that we supported Hussein in the 80s even though it was about preserving oil production stability?
I think you can be certain that you don't know what you believe in and are easily swayed from one headline to the next.
