    I have never ate bulls**t, but there is a certain pleasant smell about it. Ah, I miss my late Grandfather's ranch in Montana. Sigh.

    Good old Lew Rockwell.com.
    That's the part I forgot to mention. I've yet to meet more than 10 libertarians who haven't throw out the 'You hate the original America!' card.Fuck George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and all those other slave trading, murdering, same DNA as Obama and Bush dirt bags who wrote the pretty words Libertarians hold on to like a bible. It's like Libertarians think they'll get any points from my emotional glands by throwing out words like 'freedom' and 'statist' or going all 17th century on me and screaming about freedom and glory. Save me the top hat and tea-party. You're not a patriot. You're just a guy who doesn't get his way and is angry. That's it.

    But Ethereal doesn't get it yet. He will when he becomes an adult. Hopefully it'll come when he has kids or has gone through problems bigger than getting drunk or finding a smart chick to screw. I mean I'm sure he already does. But it's nothing he can't handle on his own. It's one of those things you have to grow out of.

    I use to be a pretty idealist Liberal in my teens. I mean I use to think that the war on terrorism was a complete fallacy meant to go after Muslims. I thought that all drugs should be legalized. I use to think the government had created AIDS as a way to kill black people. Then something really interesting happened. I had a kid, started owning things and making money. I mean it's interesting how stuff like that makes you grow up little by little even if it doesn't seem like it from the inside. I realized that there really are a sizable percentage of Muslims who seek to "Islamize" the West. I realized that not all drugs are the same or have the same effect. I realize that the reason blacks seem to have AIDS more is because there's a problem of promiscuity and there is no way any serious scientist would think it feasible to create a race based virus considering the non-existent difference there is in the DNA of a black man and a white man.

    While Ethereal went on for 2 pages about creating a group on his ideology being the Teenagers of the political world I couldn't help but notice that this is exactly how I think my kid will react when she hears me call her immature if she wants to get nose rings a few years from now. I mean seriously. It's like she'll run around saying "oh yeah I'm so immature daddy! look at me waaa-waaa! Big baby!". It's an interesting foreshadowing of things to come for me.

    Well, damn!

    I took an online test and it stated that I was a Libertarian so I had "Libertarian" on my profile for the last 8 months. You people know me enough after all these years. What the hell am I?

    I'd call you a pragmatic centrist, myself -- perhaps a bit of a conservative centrist.

    What exactly do you think a nuclear Iran will do to Sunni Arab oil production? The trbes of Iraq have all but refused to allow the oil to flow because they were are too busy hating each other to care about NEUROSPORT's gasoline prices in the States. And what about external? The entire Cold War had a huge focus on the Middle East. The Soviets started the Cold War early by forcing America and Britian to insist on its leaving Iran and Turkey immediately after WWII. By the time Korea kicked off, the Soviets were building powerful military and had great influence in the oil rich Middle East with the Suez Canal being a center focus of control.

    And before this we have the Nazis. Field-Marshall Rundstedt of Germany acknowledged that one of the factors leading to Germany's defeat was its own deficiency in oil, especially in the form of gasoline. The Allied forces used 7 billion barrels during WWII. "6" billion came from the U.S.

    So if you think just leaving the Middle East will keep Americans safe and make everybody happy and the madness will simply stop then you may want to actually think before you type. One world war and a nuclear Cold War centered around oil resources. It would be a bit harder for NEUROSPORT to get his precious gasoline with our enemies controlling it wouldn't he?
    we choose to be dependent on oil. the oil companies who run the government make sure the tax money goes to fighting their wars instead of developing alternative technologies.

    we pay $3 per gallon here while in Brazil Ethanol is less than a dollar a gallon and its just as good as gas. we DON'T NEED OIL.

    what we need is MONEY. and we're wasting the money on keeping people like you employed.

    Folks like that never really question much of anyting since they are such idealogues, and since they do not question they also do not learn. Everything just gets filtered through the political template they have chosen for themself.
    because libertarians don't allow the media to run our minds for us. we have our own beliefs which are strong and we could give a rat's ass if your television thinks our views are not practical.

    libertarians reject media brainwashing. liberals and conservatives alike embrace it. there are liberal pundits and conservative pundits but no libertarian pundits. all we need is history and constitution as our guide.

    You just got owned because you said that some documentary you watched claimed that GM foods were unhealthy, and you believed it without checking. Who is brainwashed by the media here?

    I recommend you lay off the drugs and learn to think for yourself.

    I can't think of ANY ideological dogmas that would apply to the vast majority of liberals or conservatives
    thats because you are completely soaked in propaganda. of course you're not aware of your own dogmatism.

    if libertarians were the majority you wouldn't be able to identify what our dogmas were. you would think of them as common sense instead.

    libertarians are too wise to think. it is because idiots like err think that you know how to reason that we had folks like Hitler come to power. a good orator can convince the idiots ( who think you are very smart ) of anything. then they will think it makes sense. and anything repeated enough times will seem intuitive.

    libertarians are above this crap. we know the truth. we have seen the light. we can't be bothered to listen to your ****ing arguments because we heard them all for decades and we know exactly what the purpose of those arguments and the results are.

Should an epidemic occur that selectively affects a GMO food, it could be like potatoes in Ireland. In a world of GMOs, maintaining biodiversity is important.

    Furthermore, it is the free-market that limits choice between unaltered or selectively breed foods and GMOs because of how cheap GMOs are to produce. If anything, the FDA makes unaltered and selectively breed foods more competitive by limiting the GMOs.

    P.S. This may be a late post but it relates to something said earlier in the thread.
    wrong. GMOs are specifically engineered in a way that makes it impossible for them to reproduce. you have to keep buying the new seed all the time. there is little chance that they will out-compete real food in the wild since they can't even exist outside a farm.
