Here is a list of financial contributions for and against 522. Note that all the opponents are from out of state.
There is a lot to put here, both in my opinion and just information. I am going to do my best to keep it short, sweet, and to the point.
Currently as 522 is written, it stands with the common GMO labeling laws that more than 60 countries share. That includes the fact that foods like meat and cheese are not labeled UNLESS they are from a genetically modified organism; if the cow was only fed GM grass, then it would not be labeled.
Here is the thing about that, and this is why you HAVE to pay attention to the way that information can be framed. Here is the ad against 522 that has aired recently. You'll note several things, like the misuse of the words "misleading" and "would".
Read the initiative yourself (short and easy read, really)

There are several other arguments that the No campaign has made that are sufficiently yawnful, but I won't bog you down with all of that. Just remember to pay attention to how these ads are framed. They are simply twisting these words around to try and make you think this is something negative, something lacking, and something that doesn't make sense. But it does make sense to be aware of where your food comes from, to expect your food companies to not have anything to hide, and to take that first baby step towards the US labeling food as a whole.

I have been chugging along on the Testosterone train. My dose has gone up since last November, and I now sit at a nice 140mg/week (aka 0.7ml). I do my own shots. It is not as terrifying as everyone seemed to make it. HOWEVER, I do only Sub-Q injections, which are right under the skin.
Idea! Lesson on T injections!!
Alright, my T comes in a vial. There are various sizes. My insurance will only cover a 30 days supply, so I get three 1ml vials every month (because 30days = ~ 4 weeks; 4*0.7 = 2.8ml, so the insurance just barely covers it). The concentration is 200mg/1ml, meaning that 0.5ml would be a 100mg dose. With insurance I pay $52 for a 30 days supply.
Now get this! It costs $26.99 for each 1ml vial, but it costs $109.99 for a 10ml vial!! I DON'T THINK YOU NEED TO BE GOOD AT MATH TO SEE THE SAVINGS HERE PEOPLE.
BILLY MAYS HERE! DO YOU NEED TESTOSTERONE IN YOUR BODY, BUT NATURE HAS CHEATED YOU OF YOUR BELOVED HORMONE?? WELL "MONE" NO MORE ABOUT YOUR LACK OF SEX DRIVE, APPETITE, AND DEEP MALE TONES!!
YOURS TODAY FOR JUST FIVE EASY PAYMENTS OF $19.99 IS A VIAL OF PURE TESTOSTERONE! MILKED FROM THE TESTICLES OF A BULL INJECT IT DIRECTLY INTO YOUR THIGH OR RIGHT UNDER THE SKIN AND WATCH YOUR MUSCLES GO FROM

This is a paper about myself. I don’t know why. Because I feel like it? It’s 2:30 in the morning and I’m awake drinking tea, fucking around on the computer and wondering if I should get a haircut soon. Cause I have to have it cut a certain way, and I’ve only had one hair lady doing that (Leah) (who is awesome btw) (yes I did just use btw, gtfo) Also btw is recognized by word. Did you notice that one? Anyway(s) I am worried that if I try to get someone else to cut it I won’t like it. So I think, in the end, I will wait another MONTH (just realized it’s only a month!) to get a haircut. Becaaaaaaaaause it can’t get that long, right? I’m interested to see what I’ll look like to be honest. Also have you ever thought about the fact that Tiger Woods’ first name IS “Tiger”? I mean, seriously, you don’t name a kid “Elephant” or “Platypus” or “The Blue-footed Booby” (which, btw, I’m pretty sure they named it that so they could said “booby” in a scientific setting and watch people try to suppress their laughter. You know you giggle at that shit.).
Anyway(s) I’m currently trying to make myself feel better about not working out this last week and I don’t know what to do. I guess, oh, I don’t know, working out might, well, work out? Yet here I am typing THIS instead. Whatever. At least I’m doing something? I was just burning a CD of AWESOME MUSIC but now it has turned to this. I don’t even know if I sleep tonight. I have to be up early anyway. Maybe I’ll get like 4 hours of sleep. I’m gonna get my name changed tomorrow and I want to be up early to do it. That way I can be first in the invisible line of people I will create to feel good about being the first in line.
OOOOOOH but NOW I’m feeling tired. Sleep mode may occur tonight.
I guess I could keep talking about myself. Today I did SIX pushups. Like ACTUAL PUSHUPS. So that’s better than nothing. But still. I need to get back into it. Why does this happen? I think that once a few days go by it gets easier to put it off cause it’s like “Well, I didn’t do it yesterday. So another day won’t hurt” but that’s bullshit sooooo I’m gonna get over that. Tomorrow. I told you it was 3 in the morning right? I’m considering dropping my karate class because everyone in there thinks I’m a “girl” and when I start T I don’t really know if I want to explain to the whole class. I guess I don’t have to…but there are only about 11 people in that class. But I don’t want to be a sissy about it. But whatever I’m comfortable with right? That’s what matters?
I want to mention that I have a drawing of a dinosaur on the back of my door that is named Earl and he is telling me/whoever sees it to have a dino-rific day.
I also look up at the stars every night. The glow in the dark stars on my ceiling that is. See also: awesome. It’s pretty fucking sweet. I want to put them all over my room, even the floor. It looks so sick. See also: enchanting. Have you ever actually seen butter fly? I sure as hell haven’t. Who the fuck decided to name it a butterfly? But I guess if we’re going to get into that we need to bring up “Platypus” and “The Blue-footed Booby” again.
ANYWAY(S) on a COMPLETELY different note, Washington State has officially legalized gay marriage! I feel as if this happened out of nowhere. It was kind of like “Oh heyz thurrz a bill n the govnment about gays getting’ hitched and it’s comin’ along JUST FUCKING FINE.” See also: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
