In Compliment:

If you haven't had a chance to watch it already, please take a moment to check out our year-end video, narrated by longtime PFAW supporter and PFAW Foundation board member Kathleen Turner. It's all about what PFAW members like you accomplished in 2013 and what we need to do -- and, together, will do -- in 2014:

How PFAW Members Answered Right-Wing Extremism in 2013 -- And Will Keep Fighting!

Thanks again for your incredible support heading into this pivotal election year.

From all of us here at People For the American Way, we hope you're having a happy holiday season and have a very healthy and happy New Year!

Such blatant lies = "We are committed to long-term environmental protection." As they develop and grow poisonous crops and manufacture and use pesticides that is killing all of natures workers = Bees Worms farmers consumers etc

Monsanto has no such moral compunctions over corporate social responsibility. A company director once said,Monsanto should not have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food. Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible.While Monsanto, according to Food & Water Watch, has "wreaked havoc on the environment and public health" with PCBs, dioxin, and other dangerous chemicals, the company reported in its most recent financial report to the SEC: We are committed to long-term environmental protection.

What a thorough Butthead = " Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon, which has used tobacco industry tactics to cast doubt on climate change, summed up the whole environmental issue with his own unique brand of logic: What good is it to save the planet if humanity suffers? "

No he would prefer humanity suffers - by not saving the planet.

How is it that people do not see this blatant evil?

Well, he IS an extremely over-compensated butthead.

Other than that, it would seem people these days don't believe in conflict of interest.

Hmmmm - conflict of interest - is that not required to be successful these days? Or was that blackmail?

If that seems melodramatic, ask a libertarian/conservative this question: When will you know that your theory is wrong?


I find it odd that an author would find it necessary to have to add a disclaimer. One would think that the argument would be taken up with Peter Peterson, the Koch Brothers, Ayn Rand, Paul Ryan, Ron Paul, Peter Thiel, Rand Paul. Too, I find it disconcerting that no one wants to pull out the Chicago school and its demonstrable failure.
