I did NOT claim that it’s wrong for teachers to raise funds for their students. I was not criticizing this teacher for raising funds for his classroom. I am criticizing a system, and government under-funding of education (primarily Republican legislation), which puts teachers in the position of having to hold a fundraiser for educational materials.
No doubt that many people who criticize GMO’s are simply anti-science. But that does not therefore prove that GMO’s are safe, or that GMO companies have morally pure motivations.
Anyone paying the slightest attention is aware that many politicians deny climate change (again, primarily, if not exclusively, Republicans). I don’t need you to tell me that.
