Sounds like the anti-37 people are deliberately misleading people into believing that Mr. Miller is a practicing physician at a Stanford facility. Did Mr. Miller agree to this scam or did they just slap the label over his photo?

I hope Prop-37 passes, and I really hope people are not dumb enough to fall for the lies in these commercials.

I thought Hoover was conservative -- why wouldn't they want people to have the information and the marketplace to decide?

Of course they don't want the consumer to be informed. Deception is the basis of American Marketing.

The US is one of the few countries in the world that has not gone metric because groceries will appear more expensive if listed in Kilos instead of pounds. Another example of corporate influence arresting real progress in this country.

GMOs in food must be labeled so we can make informed decisions about what we eat. Please take the time to watch the documentary "Genetic Roulette" (available for free online viewing through Nov. 6) and spread the message.

"Deception is the basis of American Marketing"

and the Republican Party.

That's why Romney couldn't answer the debate question about how he is different from Bush.

He isn't.

Romney/Ryan = Bush/Cheney

I beg to differ a little. Cheney was more intelligent than Ryan.
