This might seem like great news at first, but he now works for the law firm, Axley Brynelson, LLP.
Why is this such a big deal? Because according to InfoWars.com, this firm has worked for and defended Monsanto in the past.
This isn’t the first time that time that a situation like this has happened where a high ranking US official either comes from a large corporation into office or goes from office to a large corporation.
- Michael Taylor, The Deputy Commissioner of Food at the FDA, is a former Monsanto Executive.
- Tom Vilsack is the Secretary of Agriculture and has had connections with Monsanto for years, including use of a private jet.
- Clarence Thomas who is currently the Associate Justice of the Supreme Court used to be a Monsanto attorney. He often rules over cases involving his former employer.
In the comments section of the initial post, some people mentioned this is why it’s important to vote. To me, voting doesn’t matter. It’s choosing one clown over another.
The strongest action that we can take that will make a difference is to shift our dollars and where they go. George Washington is still a very powerful man in this country.
Start growing your own food (at least some of it). This will keep money away from the big corporations. Each and every time you make a purchase, of any kind, you are voting.
If enough of us take that action and shift our spending habits, then change will follow. Every little bit helps.
As long as we continue to keep spending the way that we do and deciding who to vote on, clowns like Patrick Fiedler will continue to take away our rights and ruin our lives.
The power is in our hands. What are some other things we can do to make a difference?
