    You're being intentionally obtuse.

    Seems to me he's also being intentionally sarcastic.

    So the EPA allows unproven treatments of life-saving drugs so industry can stay rich. Everyone epse has to endure the drug resistant bacteria this will cause. This is incredibly short-sighted.

    It should be a no-brainer not allow anti-biotic spraying. Of course, industry wins over all else. Disgusting. Crony-capitalism at its finest.

    We need countervailing powers to stop this recklessness. I am about ready to endorse the complete end of Big Ag.
    It's quite the paradox isn't it? If govt regulation allows the corporations to do whatever they like, even legalizing & legitimizing it, then how is more regulation going to help? It sounds counter-intellectual to suggest the solution is less regulation, but maybe we should give that some open minded thought?

    The bacteria is spread by an invasive insect. Again, masking symptoms insteading eliminating the cause. Big AG, Big Med, Big Pharma, Big University Research. Anyone getting tired of being fooled?

    You and I agree on that, not sure how you would have thought otherwise from my posts here.
