+Cliff Bramlett and I were having a discussion and I was going to respond to something he said, but he got angry and blocked me... can't say I am surprised... I was actually going to respond with the following, so if anyone wants to let him know that I was going to respond to his points and not simply dismiss his statements for not addressing mine feel free to let him know and/or put that up there (hint, it even involves me reviewing statements and discovering a factual error on my part):

+Cliff Bramlett 
1)  Cross Pollination DOES appear to be only a concern for famers. Monsanto relies on patents for protection of their product so they don't fear losing genetic material
2 and 3) Peanuts, riboflavin, saturated fats, etc.are already innocuously put on FDA labels (along with ALL of the ingredients gasp including things like artificial colors) 
4) If you, Monsanto, or anyone else is GENUINELY concerned about pesticides, appeal to the FDA to include it on labels. Anti-GMO people aren't demanding a scientific variant description for everything, and organic people aren't asking for a description of every chemical used. The labeling would be innocuous. FDA labeling is never overt. It requires some intent on the part of a consumer to find (e.g., I must turn over the box and read the fine print to get the riboflavin numbers... it is innocuous.


So, you got half of one point (item 1) because I didn't check on this because it is immaterial for anything I have ever been concerned about... since I am not a farmer and I do eat GMOs. Doesn't change my point about labeling at all, though (and also isn't a logical fallacy, it is a factual error).

+Christopher Hannigan I totally understand, I feel the same way, and even mute some of my own posts. You were important enough for me to notice being missing. If you ever want to talk, I'm here.

To the few people I follow. I am cleaning out my followers list.

I have grown very tired of political discourse as I feel it has degraded from intellectual discourse (if that is ever what it was) to simply crazy ravings, and the people who can't differentiate these ravings from valid logic.

So if I suddenly drop off your radar don't be surprised. You may still + me in the event you want a response, and you may comment here if you want me to keep you, but most of my non-family followers I will be removing as part of circle cleaning.

+Ole Olson its cool. I made a relatively low key exit so I am unsurprised if you missed it. I liked your posts... But the internets are full of trolls... As I am sure you are already well aware.

It is concerning: the lack of understanding of core concepts by the chairman of a college, let alone a PhD in Economics.

How a man comes to chair a department when he seems to ignore basic business/economic principles in favor of cherry-picked correlations is beyond me.
 
"...while his election to the Congress will be bad for the county, it may well be good for students at Randolph-Macon. At least the chairman of their economics department won’t be an utter ignoramus."
Leaving aside his characterization of sub-Saharan Africans as less than productive, the economics professor who bumped the House majority leader from his post proves himself economically illiterate.

Alternatively: This scares me because I make irrational leaps of faith.

Stuff I've mentioned before (except the cloud city option, although it is interesting).

I made a post a while back explaining.

I basically nuked my G+. My personal sanity needed help, and I figured the best way to do it was to stop discussing politics/economics/etcetera with crazy internet people.

I removed everything that was even vaguely political... which left family, 2 tech feeds, and a few... odd items, which will show me things like this amusing gif (e.g., Philosoraptor and Jesus H. Christ).

I had considered re-doing my circles and adding back all of the political stuff, and making it not propogate back to my "Everything" view... but when I thought about it I realized I have a lot more personal sanity by not discussing things with "Open Carry" people or "Supply-Side Idealogues" or "Randians" or other such intellectually bankrupt people.

While you and a few others gave me thoughtful and intriguing posts, they all just get yelled in by trolls... and so the discourse is reduced to the worst logical fallacies and stupidity and outright intentional trolling.

If you have a suggestion for me to be able to view posts like yours without the constant influx of trolls, I'd be interested to know, but sadly the nature of social networking seems to break the ability of me to NOT hear from trolls if I follow anyone else's posts and try to communicate with them...

A thoughtful read from a few years back in why STEM does not need special consideration in education.

Sure, I don't mind advocacy. What is odd is the specific imbalance in media (including social media) representation and political speech/funding.

It is reminiscent of the promise of Computer Science in the late 90s followed by the massloads of unemployed programmers in the early 2000s.

The seemingly artificially enhanced promotion makes me think that there is an industry push by "job creators" rather than a genuine need to encourage STEM degrees.

I'm pretty sure he's rebranded what we Christians call the "prosperity gospel". Something along the lines of "Just follow my 12-step program and you'll be as rich as Joseph or Job!"

This is a slaughterhouse. Sells local grass-fed beef for very good prices. There is no storefront and it is not pleasant, but if you want quality beef at low prices this is the place to go.
