Re: “Wage Battle

"As businesses with a long-term interest in the economic health of our community...Measure "R" is (uncomfortable)" (Los Bagels/Bagel Bakery and Café/Ramone's).

Wow, who would have expected Arcata's "enlightened" liberals to parrot the same lies and fear tactics issued by the Eureka Chamber of Commerce?

During the last 46 years minimum wages have been falling behind inflation these folks did nothing to work toward a "fairer" countywide measure!

If, (in fact), this is going to cause "community-interested" businesses a problem, Measure "R" has a provision allowing employers to negotiate alternative minimum wage compensation arraignments with their employees.

"Communities" are more than just "economies" for profit extraction!

If you must, call it the necessary evils of civilization, start a "corrective" countywide Measure, cancel that month in France, and start negotiating now with your workers! Writing whinny letters reflects poorly on the business community.

Wow, LOL, thank goodness America is waking up to this kind of nonsense information... it's obvious by most of the comments on this thread that people aren't buying it. :)

Re: “But Wait!

GE Wheat was found in OR and just recently in Montana. So how can Popoff say there are no problems with GMO contamination? As the result of this contamination, JAPAN and South Korea suspended purchases of wheat from OR.

Popoff also stated that the pesticides pose a health risk. Then why would we want to grow or eat GMOs that are ENGINEERED to NOT DIE when farmers sprayed the toxic weed killer, Roundup on GMO crops. When you're eating GMOs you're eating pesticides. Sheesh.

Re: “But Wait!

There is a limit to what's right and what is wrong. Monsanto has surpassed that limit. And they know that. Thats why they fight so hard to keep what they can a secret. They have to much money invested In trying to make the plants better and cheaper without care of what it will do to ppl. Yes maybe they think it is for the good. It was for the good in the start. But like I said they are taking it to far. If its not broken don't fix it. Quit messing around with are lives like we have more the one

Re: “But Wait!

More of Misha Popoff's usual disinformation.

Popoff is just one of the numerous GMO pesticide industry operatives that are everywhere these days trying to define a narrative that ignores the fact that there have been no independent long term studies of the effects of Roundup laden GMOs on human health.
