Trickle down policies have been in place since the early 1980's. Bush ramped them up and it resulted in the big crash. The experiment failed.
The only re-distribution in wealth and income for the past 30 years is a concentration into the top few percent. As said in another recent thread, follow the money. Please, present some evidence of this great re-distribution of wealth that you keep talking about. It is nothing more than another bogus right-wing talking point to keep the base energized and distracted from reality.
As for the labeling, much to do about little, but a whole lot of money being spent as this is a crazier state than the one you live in, on both ends. It really depends on how much the hippies in Seattle buy into it. Having eaten organic since it was just called food I like the idea, I just don't buy into another bureaucracy telling the farmers what to do. I have a son who is a cheesemaker & I know what he has to deal with from the regulators, most of whom have no knowledge of their specific field other than it's a feather in their cap to shut down an operation & they target the small guys. I have the feeling the bigger dairy businesses with their bland products favor keeping the artisan out. After eating my son's cheeses I no longer eat most large company cheese, especially from the co-ops.
The dogs we run are genetically modified, we select what we hope is the right combination of genes in a pup, most don't realize that. We just think we're selecting the right traits, genes by a different name .
Everyone's friend is No One's friend
Someday your life will flash before your eyes. It's your responsibility to make sure it's worth watching!
I have paid my stupid tax. My divorce in 1990 cost a substantial amount. What I do know is that if we just come CLOSE to maintaining the dicipline and control we EXPECT of the dogs we train, we all would be more finantialy comfortable. If I save too little, my stupidity. If someone else saves too little, THEIR STUPIDITY!
If you like GMO's then try some of this,,, it will light up your life
If picking and choosing who I breed to is genetic engineering then I am a genetic engineer.
GMO's often have other plant and animal genes spliced in. Roundup ready corn,,,,yum,,,yum,,,,,,now cows that produce spider webs in their milk,,,I'll drink to that one.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Psalms 12: 8
The wicked walk on every side when the vilest men are exulted
