GMO labels not required

If you don’t know by now what GMOs are, here is the definition from GMOAnswers.com:

WHAT ARE GMOs?

Biotechnology in plant agriculture has come to mean the process of intentionally making a copy of a gene for a desired trait from one plant or organism and using it in another plant. The result is a GMO (genetically modified organism).

So now the question is are GMO’s safe or not. That discussion can go on forever. We do know that big corporations love GMO’s for money reasons only. They can clone any food they want and create more supply, but at what cost.

Cloning food or animals to me personally seems wrong. I know we are getting to a place where demand is going to be larger than supply. I personally am leaning toward soy based products that are replacing meat demand. Cloning an animal has got to come with issues that major corporations have not looked into.

Now for the worst part about it. Food manufacturers are not required to reveal whether they are selling you a GMO product. Why?

Why would you not want to reveal something is a GMO product if it’s completely safe?

Since the American Gov’t has turned into a dictatorship and the people of America don’t have a voice anymore, we need to encourage food manufacturers to become no GMO certified. I know it exists but I believe everyone, including my products should pay for a certification that our products aren’t GMO.

If they won’t reveal whether they are GMO then we shall reveal it by showing what isn’t GMO.

What are your thoughts about GMO and cloning produce and animals? Please comment below on your thoughts.

I don’t see a reason why GMO’s should not be labeled. It allows people to make their own choice as to consume a product or not. Artificial products are more dangerous in my mind and take the flavor out of things. Look at the La Choy soy sauce that Jack uses. It is as fake as can be. It is not even made with real soy. It is made from hydrolyzed soy protein and not actual soy. I will never understand how he uses it in recipes as it does not taste of soy. If he likes the flavor more than a brand like kikkoman then he hates actual soy sauce and likes cheap alternatives filled with chemicals, corn syrup, and no actual soy.

The debate over GMO’s is healthy, but your post is silly nonsense. Companies love GMO’s for money only? Do you even know the history of them? Universities and other nonprofit entities have also spent countless dollars researching GMO’s. Are they also only doing it for the money? No, they are doing it because GMO’s can save lives.

You are confusing GMO’s and cloning. These are not the same thing. You are going to switch to soy based products instead of meat? Soy is the most genetically modified food there is. Nearly all of the soy crop in the USA is a GMO. You should read more on the subject before posting this junk.

Finally, I know you are a conservative and dislike the current president, but we are not a dictatorship at all. You sound so silly. Why post this at all?

The difference between GMO and cloning is one is duplicated and one is manipulated. That does not see like a big difference to me. Now that you are done slamming me and my conservatism, why not give you input on what you feel about the topic. That is why I did the post. If you knew me and my show, I never claim to be a professional in any topic.

I have no problem admitting I am wrong and learning from others. That happens on my show all the time. What I really want to know is what you think about not labeling GMO products being GMO products as the post titles says.

Now as for dictatorship, when Americans vote for something and the Gov’t reverses the vote then that is not a democracy and we the people have no voice. That is called a dictatorship. The Gov’t tells us what it thinks is right and forces it on the people even though things were already voted on and decided. Not sure how you can call it anything else.

What vote are you talking about here Jack? Since when has the American government ever “reversed” a vote? What does that even mean?

When living in California, we voted on many things and California Supreme Court overturns it. Have you never heard of this?

Just recently the Supreme Court legalized same sex marriage even though states voted against it. This is what I mean by “the people have no vote”. How old are you? Have you never head of the courts overturning the people’s votes?

I thought it was about same sex marriage. The United States supreme court does not care about how people vote. They interpret the United States Constitution and apply it to the cases brought to them. It is not the government or the President who overturns your vote.

Just because close minded people vote to treat homosexuals as less than other Americans doesn’t make it right and the Supreme Court should step in and overturn ANY legislation that takes away the basic rights from American citizens.

People who are against and vote against gay marriage are the same people 50-60 years ago who were against black rights. They are on the wrong side of history and will look like fools half a century from now.

This wasn’t meant to be a discussion about what you think is right or wrong. Your allowed your opinion on how the world should be.

You did say it best when you said, “The United States supreme court does not care about how people vote.”

This is absolutely correct.

Because it isn’t their job to care. It’s their job to interpret the Constitution and apply it to modern day scenarios.

I’m all for labeling GMOs but how exactly has the American Government become a “dictator ship”? We all have a voice provided to us by voting for our representatives in the House and the Senate.
