I think it's getting to the point where a large body of people will claim everything is a government conspiracy, no matter what the big guys are saying.

Chemtrails? Hah. At least relatively few people subscribe to this theory. I can take it.

Food and resource waste?
Are you kidding me? This is starting to get bad.

GMOs? Uhm. Do you even know basic biology?

Vaccines? Okay, you need to stop.

Now, people are against renewable energy because it's a government conspiracy. That's quite enough. It's getting serious.

Why are people so quick to point fingers at the government? Is it because they can't stand change? Do they simply dislike being told what to do? Do they not realize it's a harmful habit? Discuss.

Well most people dislike being told what to do. Ask any two year old to share. There is a point where suspicion can get out of hand but if your government officials have lied to you in the past then it is normal to not take things at face value at first.

This thread is a government conspiracy to make us think that government conspiracies are ridiculous.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yMrz3zxxQY A good video as to why people think this way.

Also I don't like what's currently being done with Gmo's, not the hybridization that we influence through selective breeding but when we make every cell in a plant produce pesticides I begin to question whether or not I should be eating it. I don't think it's a government conspiracy though more like a good intention with questionable results.

Some people are crazy. And it adds a bit of spice to a life that is, in the grand scheme of things, small. Then there are times that I swear the government fucks up so badly they want to create one. I mean the speed run of the bomb factory in California and everything being shown live on CNN and MSNBC the next day.

That's fucking insane.

There are other cases of "nuttery" that have been proven correct after the fact.

And if it wasn't for some of these nuts, we wouldn't have an awesome gif of Buzz Aldrin punching someone in the mouth.

Genetically modified organism.

Stuff like altering animal or plant DNA in a lab to produce or amplify desired traits. Gene splicing is one way to cause animals and plants to exhibit certain traits, like sped-up growth, bigger size, etc.

People think GMOs are poisonous for some reason. The same people are fighting for our food labels to tell us if the food contains DNA. I wanted to kill myself when I first heard about that. The scary part is that there are A LOT of these people.

The really funny thing is the same people that think GMO food will kill you and needs labels have zero problems with GMO marijuana.

Nice try Hanson, you basically just told everyone you're a government agent, last time I take your word for anything.

They also have no problem with carrots even though the fact that the carrot is fucking orange is do to people messing around with selective breeding. Which is all really GMOs are.
