Never Trust the Right to Know Mob

Once again, the Right to Know mob is at again with the fear mongering.  Now they have gotten their kids to be the puppets of these parents with this petition to label GMOs.  Hector Valenzuela is also joining in on this skull and crossbones campaign.

Just read on at some of the comments people left on the petition also.

  • Erika Preuss KAPAA, HI
  • Our young people know what is right, that we have the right to know what is in our food! We have worked for years to convince our youth to eath ‘healthy’ foods – and now that they are finally listening – the message we are sending them by not labeling GMO is a negative one. How can we teach our children to read labels, and know what’s in their food, avoid junk food etc.. and then turn around and tell them they don’t have the right to KNOW what is in their food? My kids tell me that it makes no sense, and I agree! We have a right to know ALL ingredients in our food. If it is unique and different enough to be PATENTED, then it is not a typical normal food. Remember, the biotech industry keeps telling us that GMO’s are the ‘same’ as regular food – while in the same breath they tell us they are different, unique and patented (and they defend those patents by vigorously suing farmers) – So which is it? Either they are not different and normal, or they are unique and different, and PATENTED. The industry cannot have it both ways – and we deserve the RIGHT TO KNOW all of the ingredients, ALL of the ingredients in our food. Especially the patented ones.

  • Dana Keawe PAHOA, HI
  • We have the right to know what is in our food. Please label our food.

  • There are a growing number of consumers who are concerned about GMOs and have consciously boycotted products that are not labeled NON GMO or Organic. This puts every company who use crops that are Genetically Modified at risk of market failure. Everyone is paying the price for a few. Consumers look for product information on the label to make educated choices, especially when choosing food.

    Consumers who have food allergies rely heavily on proper labeling and AVOID products that are not clearly labeled.

    Gluten Free labeling is a recent example of a labeling law that doesn’t go far enough to help consumers, as it only refers to gluten found in wheat, and does not take into consideration gluten from barley, rye, or oats. While users appreciate the label, they often find themselves at risk because the product does in fact contain gluten.

    Clear laws that include EVERY form of GM/GE products should be properly labeled on ALL food, even that which is consumed by animals.

  • larry schneider KILAUEA, HI
  • why do i need to bill to obtain information and/or knowledge? do we live in nazi germany, or mccarthy era USA?

  • Ann Evans MAKAWAO, HI
  • The YOUTH are smart enough to realize their future!

  • Jen Richmond HILO, HI
  • Our keiki are being used as test subjects w/o their (and our) consent. We all have a right to decide what we will eat, and whose products we will buy. We also have the right to VOTE, and I, for one, will exercise that right to elect officials who listen to their constituents, not mega-corporations.

  • I like that the youth of tomorrow are getting informed and taking charge of their health and the environment they will live with and for future generations. GOOD LUCK and may GOD Bless !

 

Note that Larry Schneider also made this same comment too about GE food, with Gary Hooser’s endorsement also.  They openly admit to scaring people!

What’s the biggest joke is that they claim that they want the right to know and that a label from the government is going suddenly make them trust it again.  They never trusted the state or Governor Abercrombie’s efforts to work with the seed companies with the right to know issue, so they went ahead and passed their own faulty laws.  Is a label on GE foods really going to suddenly make these right to knowers trusting of government again?  Yeah right.  It isn’t going to fix anyone.  They should ask their own industry to label food as GMO Free since they trust organic so much more than anyone else.

You Know You’re Local If…

Interesting that the BAB ringleader, Nomi “California” Carmona, apparently has left Waikiki and Kauai and headed over to the “east” side.

Note that she has to burn a lot more GMO derived ethanol to get over the mountain also.  She’s busy protesting and accused them of poisoning the ‘aina while filling up her gas tank with the product they produced.

“East” side?  No one who grew up here ever has called Kaneohe the east side.  It shouldn’t be a surprise that she’s not from here.  The local people know it as the Windward side.  Just like we know the mall as Windward Mall.  It’s no wonder that she has the gall to do the things she does because she ain’t one local.

The No Aloha of the Babes Against Biotech Saga Continues

For the most part, local people were taught to be respectful.  That’s plantation culture when many people are brought together that have many differences.  You learn to respect the differences and treat each other in a dignified manner.  The Babes Against Biotech love to claim that they have aloha for other but this might prove otherwise.

From a recent FB post on what they are up to next with targeting anyone and everyone who speaks against them or politicians who don’t listen to them.

Let’s see…  Is this really local style of doing things in Hawaii?  Lots of name calling and personal attacks noted on this post.  Apparently, this is the new definition of ALOHA from these honeys.  It’s has no shred of aloha because they don’t know what it means to be local or have what it takes.  Too bad some politicians are relying on these honeys for lawmaking.

By the way, we’re still waiting for that Babes Against Biotech Organic Chemical Free Farm!

No Aloha GMO Free Kauai: Go Use the Nazis!

Just when you thought that the whole pesticides and GMO issue was dying down a bit, something pops up that garners attention.  The A’oles have made a movie portraying the scientists, bloggers, and others who speak up for biotech as being aligned with this well known person in history.  Unbelievable but not surprising.  Does this really strengthen their cause?  Apparently, some people think so.  Same goes for all the hate comments they put all over the place, including graffiti on highways.

But then again, who is surprised at this kind of tactic?  This is great.  These are the same people who want laws made on their behalf, extremists and activists, who really should be marginalized for promoting this type of false accusations with no evidence, shameful, hateful fear mongering message only designed to divide and increase conflict, not bring together a community. There is a lot of evidence already similar to tactics used in this video that shows who really doesn’t have any aloha.  If A’oles want to cry out that they are being the target of no aloha, then they should stop posting this vitriolic and poisonous stuff for all to see.  Remember, you posted it, we find it and it gets exposed.  Be accountable for what you say and do.  Pretty easy.  Maybe.

The Babes Against Biotech and Crop Destruction

Several months ago, the Babes Against Biotech ventured from their concrete farm in Waikiki to wreak some havoc on the Big Island.  They had to spread their aloha there for A’ole Margaret Wille’s Bill 79.  While there, they met up with Roseanne Barr who made some pretty hateful statements about GMO crops.  This was a meme featured on the Babes Against Biotech page after the testimony was given:

babs crop destruction

Not only did she encourage crop burning but she also spread a lot of vile accusations of GMO poisoning and even had followers promoting more crop burning:

roseanne1

There was even a response by my dad in the Truth about Trade and Technology calling this kind of tactic out.  Pretty disgusting what this A’ole Aloha actress could do about this entire issue.  It is pretty clear what these activist groups want because it’s written all over the place.  There is not hiding what their agenda is, especially on their Twitter feeds:

So when this latest incident of papaya destruction occurred in Puna several days ago, no one can deny that it may have a high likelihood of agroterrorism since that has been the talk all over the social media for the past year.  I’ve seen it all over various A’ole GMO pages.  Some A’oles even have the gall to promote crop destruction on the Star Advertiser Facebook article (note another ignoramus “likes” it too):

KB crop destructor

So why not ask them to help solve a mystery.  This is what I posted on several A’ole GMO pages:

BABS ecoterrorism

I suspect that most of of the posts were removed from these walls or ignored but I did get a response to it today:

Babs09291

Of course they had to add their A’ole GMO issue with crop contamination and corporate hate and that they actually support an exemption of papayas???  And then to mention a rumor that the papaya farmer did this himself to collect insurance is yet another odd comment.  Funny how they smother the love and no hostility comments too.  That they claim to support farmers is a joke because what else do they demand?  A label that would actually harm the small farmers who use this technology.  I had to respond back to this person with:

babs09292

She then came out with this reply:

Babs09293

It is not surprising at all that they keep recycling the same old anti-corporation hate, Agent Orange, and so on.  I wish these women would research their stuff a bit more because to me, it makes women look bad and not smart.  My reply to her was:

BABS09294

And I, being the science supporter that I am, was compelled to put include some factual information as well.  They of course deleted the chart that shows some of the organic pesticides used and its toxicity to bees.  I reposted it on there as such:

Babs09295

And before you know it, when you hit them with facts that they don’t like, you get a ban.  Here’s their reply to me that got sent to my email:

Screen shot 2013-09-29 at 7.40.44 PM

It is quite funny that they think I am spreading biotech propaganda when the source is clearly not from the biotech industry at all rather from the Xerces Society.  This is a nonprofit dedicated to looking at how to save the pollinators.  Shouldn’t A’oles love that kind of group? I guess not.  It just goes to show that A’oles do not read anything outside of anti-GMO propaganda and when faced with facts, they duck or run!  These honeys show you exactly what they are made of!

The Crop Destruction Continues and the A’oles Come Out!

One would think that if your group was associated with breaking the law and crop destruction, you would hang low for a bit.  But no, not the A’ole GMO folks.  They will come right out and state that they support this.  Of course some of them feel the other way that this is a smear campaign against them which is odd because we’ve seen it all over the place.

Read the Star Advertiser piece on Facebook with the details of the destruction of about 100 papaya trees in Puna.

One person blatantly expresses his support of crop destruction by stating this:

There are some more expressions of hate posted on the same page:

Then on the Civil Beat article on the crop destruction we have commenters spreading false information all over the place.  “Monsanto this and that” only creates more vile misinformed hate towards farmers.  Luckily as of today, all of the comments were removed by her, but her name remains:

It is nice to know that a majority of the commenters on most of the articles did come out against this kind of action.  There is some hope that there may be a glimmer of aloha in the GMO issue.

Just a reminder that when you are against GMOs, you are aligning yourself with these kinds of folks.  The no aloha folks indeed.  No farmer should ever have to worry about this kind of issue and it is not the individual’s right to support this kind of action.  When the tone of the conversations change, that’s when we won’t need this kind of page exposing the no Aloha spirit.

A’oles Just Don’t Read but can Talk!

When you haven’t had much education in science and research, it is easy to get correlation mixed up with causation.  Some don’t bother to read the definitions either or take time to learn about what’s truly being said.  This opens up huge flaws in the A’ole GMO club’s arguments.

First, let’s define what correlation is:

Now let’s define what causation is:

Screen shot 2013-09-23 at 11.12.26 PM

Note, now really note and pay attention here, these two words are found in completely different sections of the dictionary.  Why? Because they have completely different meanings.  They are not the same as you can see from above.

The A’oles have resorted to their science with their graphs as shown below:

correlationcausation

These A’oles will state that the increase in GMOs in our diets are the reason for increases in every single disease on earth.  If that is the case, then that would mean the rise in production and consumption of organic foods would also be linked to increased disease.  Well, that would fluster them all up in a forum so we’ll leave that aside for now.  Basically, if something is correlated, it doesn’t mean that it is causative.  One has to dig deeper to determine causation from a correlation.

In today’s edition of the chronicles of the A’ole GMO club, we are going to talk about correlation a bit more.  As we have seen across many forums where GMOs are discussed here in Hawaii, there is a noticeable trend in the A’oles commentary lengths.  They seem to be getting very, very long in their posts:

aolelongwinded nomic longwindedjf moronmoratorium AriaBSER3 dhooser KC

Do A’oles really think that others are going to read these online novels when most of the time they themselves don’t even read the actual post or article they are commenting on?  I am starting to think that there is indeed a correlation here.  The correlation of the post is inversely proportional to the degree of critical thinking and reasoning.  And since some of our lazy readers won’t bother to check the link, this is what it means:

inverselyproportional

A’ole interpretation here: The longer your post, the less in will be based upon critical thinking and reasoning.

The A’oles go on and on about their hate or knowledge about GMOs that sometimes they even forget what or where the initial target post was to begin with:

wrongplacepost

Note that the blog link posted states clearly that the regulation of pesticides would be voluntary until the formal legislation is put into place.  The A’oles obviously have no reading comprehension skills because they comment as if the whole law would be voluntary.  Please read people, or you will be made the fool but we know that already.

Yes A’oles, this is really sending the governor a strong message of what you’re all about and how you don’t think.  And that is why you are an A’ole.  A’ole GMO means A’ole Aloha and A’ole critical thinking and reasoning.  You’ve just shown that to the Governor tonight with how  you’ve shown your exemplary manners and professionalism on his own official page.  And you want him to listen to you after all of that???
