Months prior to the "Shock and Awe" theatrical intrusion of Iraq, there was a lot of do it, do not do it discussing and demonstrating going on. The animated comedy "South Park" depicted this discord when the kids were captured in the middle of adults in "South Park" heatedly disagreeing with each other, and they were confused.
One of them asked what are American principles anyway, what concepts were this nation founded on? The fat foul mouthed politically incorrect kid, Eric Cartman, volunteered to somehow go back in time to learn. After almost killing himself at the same time, he ended up in Philadelphia for the finalizing of the Constitution.
Upon Cartman's return, the other kids asked simply exactly what principle was this nation founded. As the punch line for that show, Cartman unabashedly announced, "America was built on say one thing and do another!" Pretty informative for a cartoon, eh?.
Now Comes Obama Saying Something and Doing Something Else
During the campaign for his first presidential bid in 2007, Obama campaigned on his theme of government transparency and healthcare for everyone. Most importantly to those of us concerned about GMOs going undetectable with no labeling laws, Obama publicly declared that if elected he would make sure GMO foods are labeled accordingly.
I will not go into the increased secret domestic monitoring, constant drone attacks on civilians abroad, and the 2008 Wall Street bailout. Salon online magazine pointed out Obama's ability at stating one thing and doing another in his latest State of the Union speech this year (2016).
'" Food stamp recipients didn't trigger the financial crisis; recklessness on Wall Street did," Obama declared in his final State of the Union address. There is an issue with this, however: Obama cut food stamps and bailed out Wall Street, penalizing none of the people he easily admits caused the crisis.'
Now Obama has actually signed an bill that removes the states' rights for labeling GMOs, just as Vermont's GMO labeling laws entered into effect. And the bill, S. 764, aka the Dark Act, has lots of loopholes that even the FDA discussed would enable GMOs to slip through unannounced.
This new bill was essentially slipped into the shell of another existing costs for upgrading adjustments that was not at all questionable, the Sea Grant College Act, which has remained in presence because 1966 and turns up for re-approval every couple of years like other legal financial acts that involve funding adjustments.
This allowed two political leaders who are economically backed by Big Ag (over $4.4 million in contributions), to fast lane the S. 764 "Dark Act" into approval by the Senate and House without any real argument or bargaining over the issues both in committee and on the Senate and House floors. Both Sen. Pat Roberts (KS) and Sen. Debbie Stabenow (MI) did their puppet masters well in prospering with this caper.
And Obama has signed this bill making it into law, regardless of his project promises, according to consumerist.com.
However the writing was on wall right after he arrived in office, he started manning up food administrative departments with previous Monsanto staff members and crucial individuals. Very few of his supporters knew this while it was taking place-- transparency he said?
And now Obama can state; see, I satisfied my campaign promise of a federal labeling law. What he cannot state is that it is a real labeling law, it's a poser. Naturally Obama is not the only master of stating one thing and doing another. It's a custom that must existed ever since this place ended up being a nation under state one thing and do another, as Cartman brazenly specified.
Whenever someone who really advocates genuine change and who isn't really owned by the banking and corporate elites behind the drapes steps forward, like Ralph Nader or Ron Paul, somehow they're rejected the huge show and left as leading celebration hacks huddle together to decide who their designated governmental prospect must be.
The whole political process is rigged from the get-go to guarantee only the pre-chosen few make it for the final program, which is staged to make it appear you participate. And the big amounts of money raised for marketing support the media's staged political theater and circus acts to sidetrack everyone far from which's actually happening with the conniving con artists who run for workplace and succeed.
I understand I'm daydreaming, but what if many people who are signed up to vote burned their registration cards in demonstration of our political mockery? Which if there was an election and nobody voted? Unfortunately, this kind of dreaming gets more people mad at the message than the dire scenario it addresses.
The speaker in the video below gets its numbers and names mixed up somewhat, however the message is clear.
