80% of Our Fellow Citizens are Retards…

As revealed by this article found at Ace’s.

A recent survey by the Oklahoma State University Department of Agricultural Economics finds that over 80 percent of Americans support “mandatory labels on foods containing DNA,” about the same number as support mandatory labeling of GMO foods “produced with genetic engineering.”

So… 80% of Americans support warning labels on 99.9% of all food products because DNA [cue scaaaaary music written specifically for vegetables. Bipedal vegetables, that is].

And yes, we do mean warning labels, as in:

WARNING: This product contains deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). The Surgeon General has determined that DNA is linked to a variety of diseases in both animals and humans. In some configurations, it is a risk factor for cancer and heart disease. Pregnant women are at very high risk of passing on DNA to their children.

The article then goes on to try to be nice about those 80% functional morons walking among us without supervision:

For many people, there is little benefit to understanding much about genetics or DNA. Most Americans can even go about their daily business perfectly well without knowing that the Earth revolves around the sun. Even the smartest people are inevitably ignorant of the vast majority of information out there. We all have to focus our time and energy on learning that information which is most likely to be instrumentally useful, or at least provide entertainment value. For large numbers of people, much basic political and scientific information doesn’t make the cut.

All of which is true. Of course, His Imperial Majesty would suggest that not including “what is DNA?” among things that sentient beings ought to know is setting the bar awfully low, unless we’re talking about pre-schoolers, but we’ll concede the point. Nobody should be required to know everything about everything in order to avoid the label “stupid.”

But what IS undeniably stupid no matter which way you spin it is to, when faced with a question about which you know nothing at all, not check off “I don’t know.”

Which explains a lot about our elections.

Thatisall.

my concern is not whether the answer is dumb, but rather how was the question phrased. was there a statement like ” GMO foods may contain mutated DNA ” ?

“I’ve never understood…”

BJ, you have never understood anything.

I have been watching liberal cerebellums detonating (they are small, so no collateral damage) on Twitter over the Tom Cotton/Senate letter to Iran. The complete lack of comprehension of the situation coupled with total ignorance of history and the sheer certainty that they are right makes for pure theater-of-the-absurd. If there is good news, at least some of them have… Read more »
