Stupid fucking bullshit. I gave back most of my post QE3 party money over the past week of trade. Drip by drop, the market has fucked me, setting me back to a paltry +30% for the year. I don’t think the market is going higher; I know it is. Nevertheless, there is a process and stocks can fuck you before you fuck them (no homo), if you’re not careful.
For me, today’s tape was equal to having vindaloo chicken smeared all over my face. That spicy shit, burning out my eyeballs.
Aside from the refiners, the only long term trend that is a dunk shot to make money on is organic food. I know some of you republican dick-suckers like to toss irrelevant studies out there, decrying conventional food to have equal footing with organic. All of your distorted studies can suck 10 dicks. Having genetically modified foods inside of your digestive tracks will kill you. It will fuck with your stomach, organs, and eventually make you fat as hell, unable to fit through doors and bowling alley lanes. You need to research the negative effects that genetically modified corn and soy have on a person’s body, then you will realize why WFM goes up daily.
Off the cuff, some organic plays worth perusing are WFM, BNNY, NGVC, HAIN, TFM and CALM.

The same dumb fat bastards that partake in shit like MCD. We should get a fucking tax break for buying organic, natural, locally grown. Fat, dumb ass, dick sucks.
I think we should add weight to all income tax forms. For males, any lbs over 200lbs will be assessed a $10 per pound penalty. For females, we can set the bar at 120lbs.
And for those who fall into the ideal weight limit range should receive a $200 tax credit.
I see lots of fat bastards eating “organic” cookies and ice cream everyday — eating “organic” does not = being thin
It’s not my fault you are small, I am 270 and run a 5.1 40, whilst heaving great boulders.
I don’t normally dare disagree with Le Fly, but as a doctor must point out a few flaws in the rant on organic foods. Every study of note has said as far as nutritional value organic and non organic are equal. there are some increased pesticides on fruit and veggies but that can be easily alleviated with washing. Also the lable organic is loosely thrown around and can be applied to animals that were fed hormones but simply had in the case of some organic chicken their cages moved once a week. It is a popular fad and one that I think for stocks makes sense. Sadly much as cell phones causing brain tumors, and vaccines causing autism has been widely dis proven. feel free to pay more for what in many cases had the same thing done to it as non organic thanks to the loosie-goosie FDAA labeling rules.
Did you watch the video?
Nutritional value is not the issue. Studying that is completely irrelevant.
No one said a non-organic carrot has no vitamins. Organic food buyers avoid regular grocery store food because it’s full of pesticides & God knows what else if it’s GM food. It’s nutrition with poison added.
I have a lot of respect for good doctors, but they are not the same as scientists. You can’t always wash all the pesticides off. The fruit, vegetables etc. may absorb them inside. And then the livestock that eat all the GM high fructose corn have that inside of them & you can’t wash it off. Which is why Fly’s family eats grass fed beef.
One point Jesco makes that is correct is that organic labeling is louzy. That’s why people go to some organic food co-op where maybe they are even on the board & maybe they even know the farmers– instead of buying shit “organic” labeled food from their local grocery store.
That was actually my main point. I was shocked when I found out how easy it was to get the “organic” lable. I love farm raised eggs and beef that I go get it taste better to me. It’s just as for what I get at the store grocery store I don’t think the difference is worth the price. Sorry you feel that way about me Le Fly I am as affected by your opinion of my skills as a doctor as you would be of mine about your stock picking advise (which I think is excellent).
You’re a doctor who writes things like “lable,” “advise,” and “I go get it taste better to me?” We’re doomed.
Haha sorry autocorrect always kills me on my phone. I shouldn’t hurry while typing on it as you so eloquently pointed out
Welcome to the 21st century. Due to modern science “pestcides” only attack the nervous system of the bug that it is trying to kill. It is quite inert to humans. One could drink a “pesticide” and not get ill.
You are a stupid doctor. The pesticides are genetically inserted INTO THE FOODS. The “spraying of chems” is not the issue, fucked face. The issue is you eating corn and soy that HAS pesticides in it and is destroying your organs.
He might be a fine doctor. Doctors aren’t usually given much training in nutrition in med school at all. They read the same stupid articles everyone else reads about nutrition, pesticides etc. and draw the same conclusions.
He’s still stupid to me. Nutrition should be the priority of all people, especially those who are in charge of the health of others. Don’t make excuses for laziness.
fly ate god
Who ate Fly?
“Don’t make excuses for laziness.”
Making excuses for laziness is an American pastime.
MD’s and OD’s are pawns of big Pharma.
You need a homeopath or Nutritionist, hell – even a farmer will do – to parse out the chemicals and food issues.
A family member’s thesis earned his Degree from a Blue Ribbon Research University (no name drop), dealt with the Clinton policy incentives for outsourcing ag. to central and south America.
As a “Rhodes Scholar,” Clinton was another critical link on the Commie Agenda who sold his complete 2/3rd’s of his soul, and the American electorate for egotistical delight and personal aggrandizement.
You better bet that Mr. Romney understands what I just explained.
I knew about the “organic” movement before there was such a “movement.”
All that said, I’d like to know more about how to trade that idea M. LeFly.
We do get instruction in nutrition quite extensivly as well as critical reading, understanding how to read evidence based medical articles, biochem, pathology, physiology, and biostatistics all of which might help on this topic. I did not watch the video I will when i get home my bad didn’t see it on my phone. But a lot of studies are very flawed and you have to read the materials and methods before drawing results and conclusion on thier accuracy
I don’t need no damn studies. I can just read the back of my roundup bottle and see that it says poisonous. I have a box of chocolates for you but instead of the normal fillings it has roundup in it. I suppose since it is inside it wont hurt you.
Well as long as there’s no caramel…
Roundup or other glysophosphate chems are not harmful if allowed to “decay” for the recommended time before harvest. They bio-degrade within days into inert by products.
That being said…..what I really want to know is what the hell they did to the plant (corn/soybeans/sugar beets etc) to make it Roundup ready. What gene did they splice in there to make the plant tolerate the application of the chemical?
Also…What is going to be left after all the unwanted “weeds” become immune to Roundup and the like? This is absolutely and positively already happening.
If they are absorbed into the plant through the roots then they are now part of the plant. I doubt they decay. Unless you are eating rotten food. Even if it does decay into inert by products im not gonna use my roundup container to store food in when im done. Are you? And as for the gene. It is a gene off some fish. Not sure what kind. But that’s the least of my worries. Its the damn chemicals. Think…
The pharmacist agrees with the physician. Go figure.
Let’s hope you never have to say that to a trauma surgeon.
Surgeons ARE an exception to the rule.
A good friend of mine is an PA, not an MD or OD, and is authorized to surge on people.
Like I said, and as the Death Panel Checklists narrow to fewer and fewer items, the scope of prescriptions as “treatments” will be those utilizing barbiturate and opiate compounds that cause patients to go non compos mentis.
Hence, then 2013 estate taxation, AKA “Operation Steal America’s Farm Land” goes in full force.
Never forget, the lawyers write the laws on medical practice.
The non-lawyers (e.g. read Diane Fuckstein) are told by their lawyer staffers how to vote.
Much better to be a Vet. or a Pharmacist than an MD or OD into this new Climate Gate era of the medical profession.
Who’s in charge?
Why didn’t they title it, “Food, Inc. 2? Off the cuff, not having viewed the full movie or its trailer, even.
I agree but this only hurts
Wow, they found one particular study that was flawed– in France. All they can find is this one particular study to be critical of, out of all the many studies done, LOL. Doesn’t that tell U something? Pretty weak argument.
Funny. You can believe the MONsters. I will “play it safe” and avoid conventional food.
Out of all of the things to waste money on, some of you fuckers think buying organic foods, free from GMOs, is so terrible.
Where are your priorities?
The Ad Men on Madison Avenue concocted the biggest swindle in American history. The ORGANIC label. Like cigarettes LOW IN TAR AND NICOTINE.
Wow, you’re ignorant.
On the cuff, weird shit working on all my, as in every one, MLPs marched up smartly today-as they have been. Telling me sumthin.
I sense a food fight coming in the comment section. And it would be a fresh reprieve from all of the political slop.
This culture of fear scares us into eating “healthy”, clean, market-approved foods, and dares us to eat what you can afford, or what you choose to eat. Or whatever, because it really doesn’t matter what we eat.
Fools can believe anything they want. But there is tons of scientific evidence showing that it matters what you eat.
..but some foods do taste better.
Especially if you season them nicely and have a knack for cooking.with the least processed foods you can buy.
…or else grow yourself, obviously.
Look at all labels. Avoid anything with corn fructose and soy lecithin.
Eat grass fed beef, whenever you eat beef and only buy organic milk. Avoid all sugars, if you can.
I guarantee you will lose weight, see a reduction in allergies and feel better.
FrootLoops are served best with a few table spoons of sugar.
Until you get tired of being sick.
You mean OOT- FRAY OOPS- LAY?
captain crunch is better. It has crunch berries. After a couple of bowls the sugary milk tastes pretty good.
It’s your hospital bill, not mine. Each to their own.
I’m joking dude. It’s a line I lifted from a Calvin & Hobbs comic. I think he was eating chocolate coated sugar bombs.
My wife took all of your espoused steps and now weighs less than she did during college, despite having popped out two little Jenkins(es). Good advice.
corn fructose and soy lecithin are horrible for you. Spot on on that one Le Fly. If you eat sugar only natural sugar if possible he is right it is digested different and really will help you loose weight. In my clinic we recomend only eating real fruit no fruit juice for that reason they are full of artificial sweatners
Why is soy lecithin bad for you?
More than 80% of soybeans are genetically modified
Soy levying is an emulsifier in foods, cosmetics, feed ect. It has been used in the treatment of huntingtons chores, fredriechs ataxia, and alzeheimers but the mechanism of action is unknown, one good reason in my book not to eat a lot of it. It has been noted to be an irritant to the eyes, GI and respiratory tract. It has been indicated in causing bakers asthma. In animal studies has been shown to increase uterin sensitivity to oxytocin inducing preterm labor. It is classified as a class 2 general toxin and class B reproductive toxin. Oh and soy in general is a cause of constipation….. Does that help
I hate autocorrect lectin not levying
constipation is good…. too much shit in this world already
Amen to that.. Dan the Juicer is too extreme for me, but he got me on the path to living life to the fullest by eating non processed foods.. I wake up every morning and my two daughters help make super juice..
You’ve got one life Brothers!
good as well:
The problem with the food and GM and pesticides issue is that there is so much propaganda pushed by Monsanto & others who have tons of profits to gain from convincing consumers to eat the garbage they are selling.
All kinds of “informational” articles on food are pushed out there by Frankenfood companies. Just like the “information” about how tobacco wouldn’t harm you, in years past.
The bottom line is simple: fuck gmos. Eat better.
True. But that is not the bottom line in all of the deceptive articles in the press that have been pushed out there by the Frankenfood companies. It is great you have done this post today with this film, to draw people’s attention to the reality of the situation.
Here’s an interesting idea. Get to know some local farmers – take a look at their farms – and if you feel comfortable, buy a good portion of your food from them. For those apt to jump on the bandwagon that buying local or organic is just a sales tactic, scare tactic, whatever – think about this – fresh food TASTES better. That should account for something. And it’s your family’s food for god’s sake. Like mentioned before – priorities, you know?
Search for Community Supported Agriculture options near your home.
You pay, say, $25/week for a box of local, fresh, seasonal produce – just like the fancy restaurants. Good stuff – it will have you eating veggies like never before. Most CSA options are organic, because that’s what the GSA market prefers, but not always so.

I will take good genes over healthy food any day.
Maybe so. But you are not being given that choice. So there is only 1 of these factors that you have control over.
Me too, but Frog is right… we have no choice about genes… I know plenty of people who ate crappy food, smoked, drink .. etc and died watching TV in their 90s… lucky bustards….
That is the first time I’ve ever heard someone say, it doesn’t matter what we eat. That may be an original thesis.
Frog, this is the first time I’ve agreed with even part of what you’ve said.
Well, there’s a first time for everything, huh?
Start reading web sites that are not Far Right Wing & start looking at news stations that are not Fox & listening to radio stations that are not Clear Channel. And you may find yourself agreeeing with me more and more. There’s a whole ‘nuther world out there.
LOL… Frog does the tired Left wing “Fox yada yada”, after obviously spending years listening exclusively to eco-freak scare sites that have libs quaking about harmless foods.
Look to the plank, Frog, look to the plank! Not too late to wake up to logic and common sense.
Howard Stern (again) asking people in NYC (Harlem to be exact) who they are going to vote for in 2012.
Frog, I don’t watch Fox. I have been to a Jason Mraz concert and Lilith Fair.
I’m glad for you. I hope you will keep widening your horizons.
Obesity is not caused by overeating entirely. Eating processed foods and meats from places like MCD causes the bodies metabolism to store away more fat. You don’t put cheap ass ghetto fuel in your car, why put it in your body?
Excellent point there.
Oh, here are more articles explaining why it is a mistake to believe that Muslims– who constitute 20% of the earth’s population– are all violent people. Most are peaceful. I have known some Sufis and you will never meet a kinder person.
These nice people (Muslim Brotherhood) are trying a Coptic Christian for blasphemy as we speak. Beheading is the prescribed penalty.
Yessiree Buddy! They are really good people underneath all them turbans and white robes…Just like the KKK and their white hats.
Read the Blood Sugar Solution by Mark Hyman.
My personal viewpoint is that diet is only a part of the problem. One of the exacerbating factors in the societal obesity condition is that people have lost the ability to prepare food. Most of the under 35 demographic think that cooking is buying some prepared tray of frozen crap and putting it in a micro wave. That said, I will admit to being a “Holier than Thou” SOB when it comes to diet and cooking. I am a cooking fool. But I do have a severe wine habit.
sir Fly, thoughts on $DF for a bounce?
I Like Fuckin Ribs and not grass fed either.
Memphis dry rub or wet?
A couple of years ago I was in KC and I picked up my brother in law from Wyoming for a graduation at Mizzo in Columbia.
Right from the airport we went to a place called LC’s (near the hood), a couple of miles from Arrowhead.
It was good. I knew it was good when I read the health department closed it down earlier in the year and there was so much grease on the floor we thought we were at a hockey rink.
Eating organic doesn’t have to make someone thin. They still need to control portions, eat a balanced diet and get off their lazy fucking asses longer than it takes to walk to the kitchen. But choosing organic unprocessed foods is a damn good start towards being healthier. GMOs are scary and fly is 100% correct that the food itself is a pesticide like BT corn. Putting organic ingredients in fat food however doesn’t change the fact that it is still fat food
Are there any foods to buy free of man-influenced, genetic modification by now? Even the seeds to plant are probably owned by the GM engineers. Let me know if there are some.
The problem is the type of fats.
Should have a 1-3 ration of omega 3 to 6′s average american is about 1-26. This leads to an increase in the inflammatory process leading to many diseases.

I don’t remember eating any gmo!
The kids in school are rebelling against Michelle 0bama’s cramdown of her diet proposal (while she and the elitists are eating like pigs).
Check this video out that some pissed off kids did.
My 8 year old came home mad as a wet hen about the “new food”. She said lot’s of kids are starting to take lunches from home. I said what’s wrong with it, and she calmly replied “It tastes like dog poop”…….how she knows that i do not know.
And if your non genetically modified soybeans become pollinated with modified soybean pollen your seeds are now the property of Monsanto and you just lost your genetics
There were plenty of organic burgers at Lilith Fair.
With all the preservatives in my body I should live to 150.
I used to think like that. But the gist of my conviction is to not support these cocksuckers by avoiding their products.
How do you not buy their products when their produce is in everything we buy? Label or no label, local farmer or trans-national organic farmers (which make up the bulk of the organic foods market) loopholes will always exist.
Check out STKL , an organic
grains and food producer.
Watching this video now and my bullshit meter is about to hit O/S.
C’mon man… there’s nothing wrong with genetically modified food… Sugar, yes. Listen to the biochemists. Limit fructose and sucrose and you’ll be fine… Too much sugar in our society and it is definitely killing us. But GM food is responsible for a fantastic crop yield given the summer drought this year. Accelerated evolution… I don’t mind the organic movement at all… save for the obsession with avoiding GM foods. Lack of population controls is far more dangerous to our ecosystem than GM foods. You know how to make a shit ton of money, but don’t pretend to be a scientist please. There’s nothing sacred about nature and you know it… Feel free to do as you choose, but bs science is still bs science. Don’t become Howard Hughes on us.
Now for the sooth.
Humans are moving towards an r-selected species, from a K-selected species. Those humans with a modicum of brain-power give their offspring exponentially greater chances of survival and reproduction, however… once we f our environment to a live-and-you’ll-be-guaranteed-to-get-cancer-state. Fear the inorganic chemists, not the organic (no wholefoods) chemists nor the genetic engineers. They studied biology. Dupont and China will kill the plant, not Monsanto.
planet, not plant.. let me edit
For me it’s more of an issue about preserving genetic diversity. When everything is homogenized, I believe far fewer events need to take place in order to cause a catastrophic failure of the system. Of course, the scientist would say “fine, we can just figure out a way to alter the genetic composition to defeat this latest challenge”…but, to me, that seems so counterproductive and ignorant. Why can we not learn to work with nature instead of trying to “defeat” it with science?
I mean, chain stores like Whole Foods, inc, rely on international produce suppliers instead of local farmers based on the product they sell and the national organization of their business. Even the conventional stores ship organic (and standard) fruits from Chile, for an example, and many other countries; spewing non-organic fumes in transportation, the packaging is obscene, god-knows how many preservatives it takes to give milk a 3-month sell-by date as it travels across the land, and this is all vetted by a “Whole Foods” or standard organic label?
I agree with you regarding the hypocrisy of labeling food “organic” when it travels here from Chile or Ecuador. This is a product of our (American’s) demanding that our grocers carry watermelon or tomato in the middle of February. Anyone with half a fucking brain can realize that there is no way that a tomato or watermelon can be grown and harvested in the middle of winter. Nevertheless, you better believe that some fucktard will be bitching at their local produce manager if they can’t buy a fucking red pepper in January. The problem (as usual) is ignorance and greed. We want what we want when we want it…why the fuck should nature and common sense stop us from having it?
Also, let me pre(post?)face this by saying that Whole Foods (and stores of a similar philosophy) will, in nearly all cases, locally source their organic produce. I have gone shopping at big box stores and have seen organic peppers (for example) in the middle of winter that are from Mexico/Peru/wherever is warm. That is where my frustration lies.
WFM does what they can within the confines of running a huge corporation while trying to source locally and pleasing everyone at the same time.
lol… I guess it was inevitable that the age of information was immediately followed by the age of misinformation
10 points for the vindaloo reference!
Here’s the article. They are just at the very beginning though of makeing medical clinics & hospitals just a little bit efficient & only in some places. They have a long way to go.
Nice article – thanks for the link.
Great article. Thanks for posting. My wife works in a clinic here in Canada that follows all the protocols he described almost exactly for both knees and hips, and she says that the patients get top quality care but at a very low cost to the system. It has been going for a decade now.
You’re welcome, Linda.
