The real Evil in America

Last year Jack Huberman wrote the book, 101 People Who Are Really Screwing America where he pinned the blame on all that is wrong in the world on these 101 people. One would expect so much from him and is politics. His knee jerk book was more of a Republican shills attempt at gaining favor higher up in the organization he wished to be more of a part of.

These are just people with the ability to speak and be heard, and are doing so while they still have the right to do so. If one were to pen a book about where the evil in America is spawned and reared, it would have to search in other areas; the corporate world.

The Top 10 Corporations That Are Really Screwing America:
(in no particular order)

Monsanto for GMO’s. It is now very possible that there is no GMO free corn anywhere in the world. They also designed seeds with a terminator gene, so some plants can’t produce seed, which means that one day Monsanto could control all the seeds for agriculture. Talk about a hostage situation. And don’t get me started on Round-Up ready crops, which are crops that that can not be killed or even harmed by one of the most powerful herbicides in existence.

Wal*Mart for poor wages, and selling a bunch of crap that isn’t made in the US, and for putting smaller stores ( Mom and Pops) out of business since they do not have the purchasing clout. Most employees are paid so poorly and without benefits they receive food stamps and state assisted health care.

Tyson for screwing small farmers and meat producers for setting sub standard prices, and preventing or at least making it difficult for producers to sell their animals elsewhere for a reasonable profit.

News Corp, Fox news…nuff said?

United Way, for not dropping the Boy Scouts when they, the Boy, Scouts enforced discriminatory practices against gay men within their organization. Also, the United Way skims 14% off the top of what you donate for their administrative costs. So if you donate to the United Way it isn’t all going to charity. Please don’t be lazy. Pick a worthy cause and donate your money and time directly.

Clear Channel for monopolizing radio and making radio sound (like white bread and mayo) the same everywhere.

McDonalds, for targeting children in advertisements and promoting an unhealthy way of eating. You must see the film, “Super Size Me.”

Enron, or what is left of it. Its sorry carcass is now in a heap, and if it does survive it better come forward with some sort of compensation for the people it has ruined.

ADM for price fixing and screwing with the price of the world food supply and necessary agricultural products.

Phillip Morris. If they were really concerned about the issues around tobacco they wouldn’t just have a website that gives suggestions for not starting or quitting smoking. They would stop selling that evil shit.

Dishonorable mentions go to at least the following: The Kellogg Foundation, Exxon, Mobil, Texaco, Shell, BP, (Not Citgo), DuPont, Union Carbide, Citi Bank, MBNA, Discover, Ford Motors, General Motors, AOL, Time Warner, Nike, Starbucks. I could go on but I don't have a copy of the Wall Street Journal in front of me right now.

You are so dead on, and you've haven't even left a scratch on the surface yet.

Thanks, Zoe. Feel free to add to the collection. I find it odd how many people support these companies without concern for what they are doing to the economy and the planet.

Yep...My bad!!! Not only are the screwing the USA but they are screwing up the country and the Middle East.

However, as stated I was without a Wall Street Journal when I penned the article.

OK, I've got corn. Real corn. Blue and sweet. Grown from saved seed for the past 30+ years. Except the last 2. The racoons got the seed corn last year, and this year I was just too late to plant. This stuff just HAS to be planted next year, and I've got seed for anyone who has a place to do it. You need heat units (tough in our neck of the woods, and you need to be far enough away from anyone else planting corn to keep the seed true. Interested? Respond here, I'll check back and email.

If you check back, leave your email address. I'm sure someone will be interested, but one will be hard pressed to find an area within two miles where other GMO corns are not grown.
