The fact that Obama signed the Monsanto protection act should not be a surprise to anyone. Obama appointed a former Monsanto VP to head the FDA in 2009. Additionally, signing the Monsanto Protection Act yesterday, while the country was distracted by the corporate media's sole focus on same-sex marriage was no happenstance either. The powers that be know how to utilize diversion and distraction of the public's attention to slip in under the radar abhorrent public policy. The fact that the corporate owned media is complicit in diverting our attention from these crucial matters is more important than even Obama's sellouts.
The mainstream media never questioned why there were no other choices than Obama, who was an unknown quantity and McCain-Palin who were a disaster waiting to happen. There were hardly if any 'journalists' who asked Obama the tough- "how are you going to accomplish your promises?" questions. There was only "Obama promises to end the wars...YAY! isn't he so friggin' cool!?" The media were glow stick waving, tee-shirt buying concert fans. This is not to let the public off the hook...the public has lost it's capacity for mass critical thought a generation ago. Obama was either a marketed media darling, manifestation of Dr. King's dream or a Kenyan citizen, Manchurian candidate, Muslim interloper who wanted to destroy America from within. Both of those ludicrous media depictions of Obama served as camouflage for what Obama really was...A corporate operative, a lobbyists connection in the Whitehouse The majority of the media played the former MLK angle, while FOX News played the latter Kenyan-Muslim fantasy. Neither were the truth...neither were objective...neither told America anything worthwhile hearing.
So Obama gives another corporate wet kiss to a corporate interest. Expect the corporate smooching to continue, Obama doesn't have to worry about your vote anymore and the Democrats are already campaigning Hillary. The Republicans are busy trying to rally the shrinking angry white male voter bloc.
Obama has given Monsanto government protection...injected the military industrial complex with public funds at a near record level...made indefinite detention of American citizens without any charges filed against them the law....made it legal for the President to have a 'kill list' of American citizens...given health insurance companies a new crop of forced customers...and the bankers, oh how he has loved the bankers and Wall Street. Obama makes the W Bush years seem almost like the good old days.
