For starters, consider the fact that Bush Sr. appointed Clarence Thomas,
a Monsanto attorney, to the Supreme Court.  Thomas cast a key vote
in the decision that handed the White House to George Jr.

How many Ex (?) Monsanto executives are now in the Bush's Cabinet?
Answer:  Currently (as of 8/5/01) there are five, all in regulatory power positions.
     1.  Linda Fisher, Deputy Director, EPA - ex V.P. Of Monsanto & chief lobbyist
     2.  Donald Rumsfeld, Sec. of Defense - ex Pres of Searle Pharmaceuticals, owned by Monsanto
     3.  John L. Henshaw, Asst. Sec. of Labor for OSHA - A 20-year veteran of Monsanto
     4.  Ann Veneman, Sec. of Agriculture - Bd. of Dir. Calgene Pharmaceuticals, owned by Monsanto
     5.  Mitch Daniels, Dir. of the Office of Management and Budget - V.P. Eli Lilly Pharm.
          So what's the tie-in between Daniels and Monsanto?  Eli Lilly and Monsanto developed the genetically engineered
          bovine growth hormone.  Lilly "owns" the European "franchise."  Daniels presence insures that the bovine growth
          hormone will one day be approved for use in Europe.

Note the following changes in job assignments:  {Monsanto's History Within "Our" Government Goes Back Decades}

"Our" U.S.D.A. just approved "Terminator Technology" for Monsanto. (Aug. 3, 2001)
Are you, dear reader, starting to see a "pattern" developing here?
And I haven't begun on the oil & coal corporations control of "our" government yet. . .

CorpWatch's Greenwash Award of the Month: Monsanto

(Oh Yeah - Now I Feel Safer - Don't you?)

IF you've gotten this far, don't stop - Now that you know the connections, read on and learn how
"our representive" government has allowed you to become nothing more than a lab rat for this corporation,
and its friends inside "our" government.  Stephen King couldn't have created this horror-tale better.
And believe me when I say. . .  "It does not get better."
