Measure B is a proposition that will mandate the use of condoms in the production of all smut films.

Right now, with about half of all precincts reporting, the measure is up by 20 points.

Damn, now where will I be able to find some good quality fap material that doesn't involve latex?

Wtf happened with prop 37? I guess it's getting killed tonight?

darn Monsanto and all those big corporations for pouring money against. I can't see why anyone would actually vote against labeling genetically modified foods.

People who were brainwashed, or (using the politically correct euphemism) cognitively captured, by Monsanto & Dow Chemical advertisements, voted against Proposition 37.  If there weren't so many such zombies,  Prop 37 would have won by a mile.

How sad is that? 61 countries, including China, already label GMO's and we still can't get that right. Monsanto itself donated more money than the entire "yes" side combined. Coke, Pepsi, and Kraft were also huge donors.

How friggin sad is it that people don't give a garbage about the food they eat?

i read that monsanto and others put almost $50 million into fighting that one.  you know if corporations like that are putting that much money into keeping information about their product from the public, you need to stay far away from it.  that alone is a better warning against gmo's than any label.  but people are stupid so they voted against it.

Most food scientists agree that genetically modified foods are safe.  So voters rejection of proposition 37 seems to be reason overcoming fear.

That is debatable but not the point..labeling products only adds to the education and choices of the consumer. I remember when NO labeling was used of any kind.

I hope it comes up again and is passed. It is tough to win being outspent 5 to 1 in the media.

for every study, whetehr paid for by monsanto or not, that says they think gmo's are safe, i can find one that says they are likely not safe.  however, any reasonable person should be able to surmise that gmo's have not been prevalent in our food supply long enough for those studies to mean much right now.  but as wallstreet said, that's not exactly the point.  foods are already labeled to tell us about sugar, protein, carbs, etc.  it's not like this is a groundbreaking burden here.  plus, many countries, even fuckin china, already require it.

how people can side with the big corporations with such an obvious profit motive to keep them in the dark about what they are eating is incomprehensible to me.  after all the garbage about monsanto and people being fucked by the banks and so many other corporations, why would people trust those corporations to the extent that they don't even want to be informed about what they are eating.

It goes to show that people rely too much on the media for making decisions.

Shame on those corps listed on the link for spending millions to keep consumers in the dark.

You realize that produce is being genetically modified right?

 I think it failed because people actually read the prop and we already have labeling like organic and inorganic so why pay more to do this again. on top of that from a judicial point of few Prop 37 doesn’t go as far as it should to give people full transparency about the food they are eating. lawyers  $$ would be like a kid in candy store.

organi labeling and gmo labeling are different.  it's almost makes as much sense to say we should put the gmo label on food because we already label food with a price tag.  you might want to read about how the big corporations who want to keep you in the dark about your food are trying to have certain foods with gmo ingredients still be listed as certified organic, an obvious attempt to cash in on the organic market.

Since I work for the porn industry (I'm an editor and that's my current gig), nothing could be further from the truth.  For example, Penthouse owns their own property, inside which is the country's largest adult stage/set/green screen.  Since they own their building and the property on which it sets, this ordinance will not apply.

The others will just shoot outside of L.A. county.  New Hampshire is the only other place in the country where shooting porn is legal.  They're not moving to New Hampshire.
