Very true and it really is upsetting. If there is one thing that we ALL should unite and fight against its the beast known as Monsanto.

It is not just Monsanto, it is Big AG in general against the small farmer.

P u l e e z e! Let's not have people assuming you're new to observing government appointments, throughout history.

Here's one for you: President Bush selected Dick Cheney to be Vice President. Actually, he was the defacto President. But, that aside ... the President put him in charge of the wars and other big budget operations. Mr. Halliburton himself. And which company profited heavily from most if not all of those programs while Mr. Haliburton was in office. None other than Haliburton.

There's an endless list of such appointments. Not as wrongful as the Cheney example, and certainly more substantial a connection than the one you allege.

Come on. Ramp it up a bit. If you're going to attack the President for something, make it real, make it good. I'm certain there are those examples. So get to work!

I missed that part in civics where the President gets to appoint the Vice President. I thought the VP was elected. Silly me!

Sadly, Monsanto's grip on US politics goes back many decades.
