  •  When I think of the current occupant of the WH (24+ / 0-)

    I remember the old adage, "If an individual  acts like a puppet, quacks like a puppet, and walks like a puppet, that individual  probably is a puppet."

    People who are so loyal to the current style of Democratic "leadership" are so willing to blame the republicans for the economic disasters that have ruined us in the past, and due to Geithner's actions,will continue to ruin us in the future. They somehow fail to understand that about 80% of what  a President accomplishes has to do with the appointments the President makes. Obama appointed Geithner, and now Jack Lew will replace Timmy. I have seen nothing and heard nothing that indicates the Republicans twisted his arm and made him make these appointments.

    For his personal selection for the FDA, Obama also appointed Mike Taylor. Yet Democratic voters blame Republicans for the fact that Monsanto and other big agricultural firms are getting their way with GM seeds and foods. Again, where is the film footage of Republicans twisting Obama's arm and making him create this selection?  

    Mike Taylor is the man responsible for the Clinton Doctrine of Food and Seed Safety, that stated that Genetically Modified seeds and foods are substantially equivalent and equal in nutrition to conventionally grown foods. This statement was made without even two months, or two weeks, of study and data. Because of this Doctrine, we now have GM foods proliferating in so many of the fields where food is grown. Probably over the next two years, the nation reaches the fatal tipping point - wherein so much pollen from Gm foods exist that there is no going back. Our legislators might wake up and perhaps say in three years, that they have decided to outlaw GM food and seeds. But  by then nature's methods of dispersing pollen mean the genie of GM foods and seed scan never be put back in the bottle.

    Offer your heart some Joy every day of your life, and spread it along to others.
