Americans, what do you have against GMOs? submitted by give-it-a-try to AskVoat

RunsWithScissors 2 points 117 points (+119|-2) ago

I have nothing against GMO's per se, I just think that:

  1. The companies selling the GMO's should not be allowed to also do the science on their safety and environmental impact. Right now, we're trusting the same companies that sell aspartame (which is illegal in much of the world) to give us their word on the science. That's not good enough. We need a lot more environmental impact study in particular, and the companies shouldn't self-report the science.
  2. Consumers should be able to know whether they want GMO's or not. Why not let the market decide?
  3. Patent protection on GMO's is out of control. Monsanto has repeatedly sued farmers after their fields, which contained no GMO's, were infected by Monsanto's farms. Monsanto and its partners spread GMO seeds to people's farms, those seeds edge out the others because they're heartier and survive better, then Monsanto sues an unwitting farmer for "patent infringement." That's definitely no good -- and predatory.

is Voat becoming a cesspool of racist keyboard warriors? (the opposite of an SJW) submitted by skippy_the_kangaroo to AskVoat

Everyone else kicked them out so the tragedy of limited speech is that the only safe places for unrestricted free speech become cesspools.

That's sort of any even free hate speech is a good idea. In wide social circles, it's immediately rebutted. But when hate speech is banned, its few remaining outlets become echo chambers of incestuous amplification.

Bernie Sanders Would Tax The Income Of The Wealthiest Americans At 90 Percent submitted by KentStateNeverAgain to news

No one would be paying 90% of their income. It's a marginal rate.

Your first comment has no relationship to your first. You might not be a racist, but you are a xenophobe, and not a worthwhile member of society.

"Rules for thee but not for me": Emails show Hillary used here position to ask Clinton Foundation donors for State Dept donations, against federal regulations. submitted by TerriChris to news

No partisan agenda anyway. Or not enough to matter.

A laziness or sensationalist agenda, sure. But they aren't shills the way Washington Times is.
