My bet is Colorado voters are going to pass GMO labeling

Posted by eeos @ 23:42 on October 23, 2014  

there’s too many people that want GMO labels. There aren’t and bunch of fat arse soda drinking, kraft food hoarding, target and walmart grocery shoppers in this state. Everyone knows cheap meats and foods are brought to us by the Monsanto frankenstein wierdos. No thanks.

Serious question. If Ebola man is sweating and paying cash,how long is virus active on paper money?

and more….

interesting that the small handful of Ebola cases in the US, the nurse from Dallas went on a cruise and NYC doc went on subway! Wtf? Remember the symptoms: fatigue, fever, irresistible urge to travel.”

“Self quarantine” = absolutely ridiculous

Next effing nitwit Dr. that brings Ebola back should be parachuted into Syria while he is vomitting.

and one more to put in your pipe and puff on: I personally think the CDC has no idea how the ebola virus is spread.

Ever wonder what space sounds like? Here’s the answer

Back in the 1980’s, I had a commodity brokerage and feeder cattle were deliverable in Amarillo and Oklahoma City. My customers had hedged and planned to deliver their feeder cattle since the board was $2.00+ higher than the cash market. Someone was always doing a short squeeze on the March feeders so we started selling late in the trading month. We had 13 contracts hedged and the action heated up in the last week of trading . On the last day of trading, we had a total of 25 contracts on by the close. We had all the cattle in position on the first notice day.

i got a call from a dentist in New Jersey asking my what I thought I was doing. I thought maybe something was wrong with the cattle. He was really irate and wanted to know what his group was going yo do with 25 loads of cattle in Amarillo and Oklahoma City. I told him he bought them for some reason. Maybe he should confer with his group. Within 60 days, feeders went to cash settlement.

Re Quantitative Easing

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 21:55 on October 23, 2014  

I’m wondering. If Quantitative Easing (fed buying bonds) was to push rates lower, and they backed off (decreased purchases) a few times, then why have rates been falling??

Is the natural market buying them? CNBC always implies the general stock market is scared stiff of the fed stopping Q-E and letting rates rise. But the 10 year yield 2.28% is lower.

Year to date:

Food companies spending millions to fight label requirements in Colorado

Food companies spending millions to fight label requirements in Colorado

10 minutes ago

By KRISTEN WYATT

(AP:DENVER) DENVER (AP) — Farms and fields dominate Colorado ads opposing a ballot measure to require labels on some foods that have been genetically modified, with farmers telling voters the labels will damage their businesses.

But farmers and agriculture groups are just bit players in the $11 million campaign to defeat Proposition 105. The real money is coming from biotechnology giant Monsanto Co., which has given more than $4.7 million, and food giants like Pepsico and Coca-Cola, which sent a combined $1.9 million to fighting the proposal.

Hormel Foods, Kraft Foods, Kellogg Co. and The Hershey Co. are also outspending farm groups to fight the proposal. Food companies are pouring big money into fighting a similar ballot measure in Oregon, too.

Colorado and Oregon are battlegrounds in a national war over genetically modified organisms, or organisms that have been altered at the molecular or cellular level. So-called GMOs now make up almost the entirety of many staple crops, such as corn and soybeans, which are used in many items on grocery-store shelves.

“We’re not saying GMOs are bad. We’re saying we want them to be labeled,” said Tammi DeVille Merrell, campaign manager for Right To Know Colorado, which has raised less than $500,000 and has no TV or radio ads to promote its campaign.

Short on funds, the campaign is relying on big-name endorsers to take their side.

Chipotle, along with Ben & Jerry’s ice cream company, has backed GMO labeling. Former Democratic presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich has planned a visit to Colorado next week to talk up the measure.

Labeling opponents in Colorado feel confident they’ll be able to defeat the proposal. They’ve spent just about $3 million on television ads, according to campaign finance data analyzed by the Center for Public Integrity.

The ads call the labeling measure misleading because it doesn’t cover many foods in the grocery store, including eggs, meat, dairy and beer.

Those foods aren’t currently genetically modified, though animals are often raised on feed that has been modified. Labels also wouldn’t be required on foods and drinks sold for immediate consumption by grocery stores, restaurants or delis.

Proponents said those foods are regulated in different code sections, making them impossible to include in a single ballot question. But opponents say the differences would confuse shoppers.

“Labels on food are very important to me. They need to be very reliable and not leave people making assumptions,” said Mary Lee Chin, a registered dietitian who volunteers for the opposition campaign.

Chin said GMOs can help the environment by producing foods that require less water or fewer pesticides.

“Genetic engineering techniques, they’re a more efficient way of growing foods,” said Chin, who has worked as a consultant for Monsanto in the past but no longer works for the company.

Colorado and Oregon could become the first states to adopt mandatory GMO labels through public votes. Washington and California rejected GMO ballot proposals in recent years. Vermont lawmakers have approved GMO label requirements, but the matter is still being fought in the courts.

Publicly available polling is limited on GMO label requirements. Colorado State University looked at the question 14 years ago and found mixed results.

In that 2000 survey, shoppers along the Front Range were asked about genetically modified potatoes. A whopping 78 percent supported mandatory labeling — but respondents were not willing to pay a premium for such labeling. Farming groups opposed to mandatory labeling argue it would make food more expensive, though the sides disagree on how much.

Proponents are hoping Colorado is now ready to make GMO labels mandatory.

“This issue is really resonating with people. They want to know what’s in their food,” said Kelly Erb, spokeswoman for Right To Know Colorado.

The GMO question is one of four statewide ballot measures Coloradans will decide next month. Dozens more ballot questions are pending in other states on everything from guns to marijuana to gambling.

More than $1 billion dollars will likely be spent on campaigns this year for ballot measures, according to the Center for Public Integrity. That’s more than the Republican and Democratic parties have raised collectively this cycle.

Yes, I agree. IMO James Corbett’s only bias is toward the truth and telling it with clarity; a breath of fresh air in a polluted world. He’s one I try not to miss.     Silverngold

Staying Long

Posted by Samb @ 16:16 on October 23, 2014  

Tripled my call options, Admit to being a nervous Nellie in here and money management just won’t allow me to go further long in here in this cycle. But, but, but…..We are still well off the low for this cycle and haven’t broken down yet…despite recent attempts to crash us. I think that pressure is now on the shorts. They have tried and failed.

Cattle are fine with me…I haven’t traded then since 1973

Maybe we should change to a cattle forum. Back in 2011 I decided to get back into running a few cows I bought about 50 head at 1300 a piece if I sold them at todays price I would get 2000 or better. My son-in-law sold some first calf replacement heifers for 2600. Calves weighing 600 lbs are going for 2.80 a lbs or 1680. meanwhile my gold and silver stocks aren’t worth much. Thinking about running more cattle.

JNUG just had a possible key reversal on double daily volume-up 3.4%–let’s see the close

Silverandgold

Thanks for posting that James Corbett video.

Concise – and factual – that short interview was, hands down, the best summary of the Fed and money creation that I have ever seen.

That it was broadcast on RTv, not FOX, NBC, CNN is telling on its own terms.

Banksters. Bad Karma

Rigged mkts

Posted by Maddog @ 14:06 on October 23, 2014  

Back on the 8 October Hui went up @ 8 % on the day and put in a 6 day key reversal to the upside, all on massive volume….that used to be the kind of TA signal that you could bet the house on.

Tdy we took that low out, without even a small bounce first, that is not a real mkt tradeing, that is a rigged one.

Those lawyers guess what you’d call predatory representing themselves not the client and were these exorbant fees acknowledged by the client and justified. Looks like the fee basis needs some reform too. So does auto correct on these darn cell phones.

Molyminer–Har! I’ve got a few myself….Wanka-those are a riot!

if its contingency then its set at 40% top but it would seem these lawyers were operating on a fee basis only and the idiot in jail got screwed twice….first by the cops kicking the sh*t out of him and second by his lawyers robbing him blind. bwahahahahaha our wonderful legal system working for us sheeple.  :mrgreen:
