God made a [Factory] Farmer: How Monsanto outfoxed the Obama administration »

Exploding more wingnut myths about America, farming, food and corporate behavior.

Be afraid…if you’re not already turned stupid or insouciant.

Be afraid…if you’re not already turned stupid or insouciant.

“Every corporation which bemoans, and every leader of that corporation who bemoans, the lack of
education and a workforce that is not sufficiently educated, who at the same time is now temporized by
that concern and simply outsources a job on a price basis and diminishes the tax base in this country for
education is a hypocrite and is not looking at the broad issue. Nor is he fulfilling his or her corporate
responsibilities as a leader in dealing with the stakeholders that are beyond short-term investors. They
include the employees, the suppliers, the community in which they work, and the nation that makes them
possible. We don’t hear a lot about corporate responsibility. I’m hoping that we shall soon.”

Wall Street Journal editor Doug Blackmon's "Slavery by Another Name" pervades Georgia Life. Corporations, Peonage, Bondage & Red States... »

Slavery by Another Name, now a Sundance indie documentary, was a Pulitzer winner penned by Doug Blackmon. It chronicles the use of black chain gangs,  sharecropping and other peonage tools in the South post-Reconstruction to the 1940s to cement a social/political order and profit. Doug’s not a left wing nut. He’s a conservative editor of the Wall Street Journal. And he’s a great guy. Done some book festivals with him.
