That's my beef with GMOs as well. They're a government sanctioned
transfer from the poor to the rich.
And responding to Greg's compliant above, I find it morally repugnant
when the rich use the government to engorge themselves. See also this
turd of a Medicaid bill -- just transfer 100 billion to big pharma from
our pockets over the next twenty or so years.
Maybe the rich should finance work on anti-aging drugs if they want to
escape probate and taxes. :)
