Field workers at an Eastern Oregon wheat farm were clearing acres for the bare off-season when they came across a patch of wheat that didn’t belong.
The workers sprayed it and sprayed it, but the wheat wouldn’t die. Their confused boss grabbed a few stalks and sent it to a university lab in early May.
A few weeks later, Oregon State wheat scientists made a startling discovery: The wheat was genetically modified, in clear violation of U.S. law, although there’s no evidence that modified wheat entered the marketplace.
They contacted federal authorities, who ran more tests and confirmed their discovery.
“It looked like regular wheat ,” said Bob Zemetra, Oregon State’s wheat breeder.

But, he added, in his opinion "we no longer have free enterprise capitalism in health care." Mackey sees too much government involvement and "not a system … where people are able to innovate."
Well, there’s no denying that fascism has a strong association with dictatorships. So strong, one wonders how anyone could use the word and only later remember that association.
“Technically speaking, it’s more like fascism. Socialism is where the government owns the means of production. In fascism, the government doesn’t own the means of production, but they do control it, and that’s what’s happening with our healthcare programs and these reforms.” – Whole Foods CEO and self-professed libertarian John Mackey
