Then came the reality.

been working to label GMO food and warn the public of its huge
dangers were shocked to the core. They saw Obama had been pulling a
bait and switch.
The new president filled key posts with Monsanto people, in federal

of the reasons you see Pepsi and Coca Cola siding with Monsanto on
this issue is, they use the poison aspartame in their diet drinks.
Aspartame is a one of the many dangerous products of Monsanto and

Why Do Supporters
of Genetically Engineered Foods Insist on Organics for
Their Own Families?
From Dr. Mercola / Mercola.com / Oct 11, 2012 Over the past few years, an
interesting pattern has emerged, where political
supporters of genetically engineered (GE) foods are feasting on
organics, while promoting unlabeled GE foods for everyone else. Most
recently, Mother Jones1 discussed how
Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney – whose ties to Monsanto go back to
the late 1970's when GE crops were still in the R&D phase –
reportedly makes sure his own meals are nothing but organic...
Wheat May Damage Human Genetics Permanently
Thu Oct 18, 2012
Australian government, in the form of its science research arm, is
joining Agribusiness profiteering by designing a GM wheat that could
kill people who eat it & be inherited by their children. We have not
yet seen the worst damage that genetic engineering may do.
Australia’s governmental agency, Commonwealth Scientific and
Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), is developing a wheat
species that is engineered to turn off genes permanently.
Follow the money - Who profits from America's
The incredible untold story of the 2012 election so far is that
Romney's run has been a shimmering pearl of perfect political
hypocrisy, which he's somehow managed to keep hidden, even with
thousands of cameras following his every move. And the drama of this
rhetorical high-wire act was ratcheted up even further when Romney
chose his running mate, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin - like himself,
a self-righteously anal, thin-lipped, penny pincher who'd be
honored to tell Oliver Twist there's no more soup left. By selecting
Ryan, Romney, the hard-charging, chameleonic champion of a
disgraced-yet-defiant Wall Street, officially succeeded in moving
the battle lines in the 2012 presidential race.
Like John McCain four years before, Romney desperately needed a
vice-presidential pick that would change the game. But where McCain
bet on a combustive mix of clueless novelty and suburban sexual
tension named Sarah Palin, Romney bet on an idea. He said as much
when he unveiled his choice of Ryan, the author of a hair-raising
budget-cutting plan best known for its willingness to slash the
sacred cows of Medicare and Medicaid. "Paul Ryan has become an
intellectual leader of the Republican Party, Romney told frenzied
Republican supporters in Norfolk, Virginia, standing before the
reliably jingoistic backdrop of a floating warship. "He understands
the fiscal challenges facing America: our exploding deficits and
Debt, debt, debt. If the Republican Party had a James Carville, this
is what he would have said to win Mitt over, in whatever late-night
war room session led to the Ryan pick: "It's the debt, stupid.
This is the way to defeat Barack Obama: to recast the race
as a jeremiad against debt, something just about everybody who's
ever gotten a bill in the mail hates on a primal level.
Last May, in a much-touted speech in Iowa, Romney used language that
was literally inflammatory to describe America's federal borrowing.
"A prairie fire of debt is sweeping across Iowa and our nation, he
declared. "Every day we fail to act, that fire gets closer to the
homes and children we love. Our collective debt is no ordinary
problem: According to Mitt, it's going to burn our children alive.
And this is where we get to the hypocrisy at the heart of Mitt
Romney. Everyone knows that he is fantastically rich, having scored
great success, the legend goes, as a "turnaround specialist, a
shrewd financial operator who revived moribund companies as a
high-priced consultant for a storied Wall Street private equity
firm. But what most voters don't know is the way Mitt Romney
actually made his fortune: by borrowing vast sums of money that
other people were forced to pay back. This is the plain, stark
reality that has somehow eluded America's top political journalists
for two consecutive presidential campaigns:
Mitt Romney is one of
the greatest and most irresponsible debt creators of all time.
the past few decades, in fact, Romney has piled more debt onto more
unsuspecting companies, written more gigantic checks that other
people have to cover, than perhaps all but a handful of people on
By making debt the centerpiece of his campaign, Romney was making a
calculated bluff of historic dimensions -
placing a massive all-in
bet on the rank incompetence of the American press corps.
has been a brilliant comedy: A man makes a $250 million fortune
loading up companies with debt and then extracting million-dollar
fees from those same companies, in exchange for the generous service
of telling them who needs to be fired in order to finance the debt
payments he saddled them with in the first place.
That same man then
runs for president riding an image of children roasting on flames of
debt, choosing as his running mate perhaps the only politician in
America more pompous and self-righteous on the subject of the evils
of borrowed money than the candidate himself.
If Romney pulls off
this whopper, you'll have to tip your hat to him:
No one in history
has ever successfully run for president riding this big of a lie.
It's almost enough to make you think he really is qualified for the
The unlikeliness of Romney's gambit isn't simply a reflection of his
own artlessly unapologetic mindset - it stands as an emblem for the
resiliency of the entire sociopathic Wall Street set he represents.
Four years ago, the Mitt Romneys of the world nearly destroyed the
global economy with their greed, shortsightedness and - most notably
- wildly irresponsible use of debt in pursuit of personal profit.
The sight was so disgusting that people everywhere were ready to
drop an H-bomb on Lower Manhattan and bayonet the survivors. But
today that same insane greed ethos, that same belief in the lunatic
pursuit of instant borrowed millions - it's dusted itself off, it's
had a shave and a shoeshine, and it's back out there running for
Mitt Romney, it turns out, is the perfect frontman for Wall Street's
greed revolution. He's not a two-bit, shifty-eyed huckster like
Lloyd Blankfein. He's not a sighing, eye-rolling, arrogant jerkwad
like Jamie Dimon. But Mitt believes the same things those guys
believe: He's been right with them on the front lines of the
financialization revolution, a decades-long campaign in which the
old, simple, let's-make-stuff-and-sell-it manufacturing economy was
replaced with a new, highly complex, let's-take-stuff-and-trash-it
financial economy. Instead of cars and airplanes, we built swaps,
CDOs and other toxic financial products. Instead of building new
companies from the ground up, we took out massive bank loans and
used them to acquire existing firms, liquidating every asset in
sight and leaving the target companies holding the note.
borrow-and-conquer economy was morally sanctified by an almost
religious faith in the grossly euphemistic concept of "creative
destruction, and amounted to a total abdication of collective
responsibility by America's rich, whose new thing was making assloads of money in ever-shorter campaigns of economic conquest,
sending the proceeds offshore, and shrugging as the great towns and
factories their parents and grandparents built were shuttered and
boarded up, crushed by a true prairie fire of debt.
Mitt Romney - a man whose own father built cars and nurtured
communities, and was one of the old-school industrial anachronisms
pushed aside by the new generation's wealth grab - has emerged now
to sell this make-nothing, take-everything, screw-everyone ethos to
the world. He's Gordon Gekko, but a new and improved version, with
better PR - and a bigger goal. A takeover artist all his life,
Romney is now trying to take over America itself.
And if his own
history is any guide, we'll all end up paying for the acquisition.
