death becomes monsanto and everything it touches

about 4 years ago i attended a workshop in seattle entitled “positive transformation in a time of global change”. not only did it change my life and encourage me along my path, it made me feel hopeful and optimistic. i saw a future that was promising and in tune with natural order. a future where ecology is considered. it is a future with a holistic approach. a big picture. a future where bandaids aren’t patched over symptoms. it was all clear and simple. it plainly and eloquently illustrated a future with clear a conscious.

last night, president obama (president sexypants, i used to refer to him) signed H.R. 933, which contained the monsanto protection act, into law. more than 250,000 Americans who asked that he use his executive authority to veto it. everything monsanto touches, historically, turns to cancer. there is absolutely no integrity involved in anything the corporation does. i was actually born at night, but not last night; i know money talks. i know how politics works.

the signing of this provision is disastrous. it opens the floodgates further. enough is enough, as my soccer coach used to say with his long island accent. how much worse do things have to become before they get better?

so obama has lost his sexypants status. it reminds me of when my mother, who was a big ann richards supporter, found out she supported tobacco lobbyists. while it’s true that politicians can never be trusted or depended upon, they are elected by the people, for the people. the signing of this provision was neither in the best interest of the people of this country (nor the global community), it was not what the people wanted.
