a little non-academic speak for the day - ‘cause brain est muerto.
part of the reason i’ve expatriated (still in progress) is because since i was 9 (1992), eating in the US, i have had unexplainable stomach pain. they ran tests; results inconclusive. so since 1992 (!), i haven’t eaten meat in the US - because not eating meat seemed to result in a whole lot less stomach pain. after 2007, almost every meal caused me pain. in 2009 things got so bad, I survived on vodka and water mostly for about 4 months (i’ve met other people who had similar pain and said vodka helped). the pain got to be too much. another gambit of tests were run *the extent of medical technology* (shout out to CICP - Colorado Indigent Care Program); results inconclusive.
when i visited Britain in October 2009, i finally ate without pain. since i’ve (temporarily) immigrated, i’ve really had no problems - except now i can’t stomach red wine, which is lame.
as an (agricultural) political economist, my research was shunned from US doctoral programs. i wanted to research to what extent do US agricultural subsidies, particularly in corn and cotton, artificially deflate global agricultural markets. not one person would so much as hear my proposal. i’m currently supervised at the University of Manchester.
i’m not saying Britain is this great free, food-Mecca. i’m saying people in the US have it ‘the shittest’ when it comes to how GMO’ed your food is. and its because monsanto
controls dominates dictates, permeates US politics, supremely.

i’m not arguing a fallacy -false deduction, Dean?- here. i’m simply saying - in a non-academic, brain dead way - … watch out for your food.
