“No Food Choice” Judge Now Works for Monsanto Law Firm

Posted on Oct 26 2011 - 2:56am by Mike Lieberman

The Wisconsin Judge, Patrick Fiedler, who said that we do not have a fundamental right to consume the food that we grow or raise has stepped down.

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.

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?

    Ugh, so disheartening isn’t it? These giant food monster corporations drive me crazy. I’m in a situation where I have limited space at a rental and can only grow a certain amount of food, but I’m lucky enough to live in an agricultural state where local produce and food products are very popular. I buy local as often as I can and avoid the big box grocery stores to support the local economy and keep my money in the pockets of local farmers.

    This is why you have to grow your own food, educate yourself, AND VOTE! Too many of us just do what’s easy and comfortable not realizing how every action (and inaction) has a ripple effect. Elected judges across the country are ruling on the side of big business because their reelection campaigns are funded by big business! You can grow your own food all you want and vote with your dollar by supporting small, local producers rather than the Kimberly Clarks, P&Gs, Cargills, and ConAgras of the world, but if our elected officials continue to make business easier for the mass producers and large-scale polluters, our lives and our planet gets the brunt of it. Educate yourself and VOTE!

    Lewis Black said it best when he said that our two party system is a bowl of shit looking at itself in the mirror.

    I vote with my dollars. The only language corporations and their political tools understand.

    It definitely takes both, but unfortunately the way the system is set up it’s choosing the lesser of the two evils. Both of which are backed by the same corporations.
