'bout time you brought up Monsanto on the show
whenever a justice leaves the court the public is treated to a false debate on abortion and other social issues. our real fear should be how pro big business the new justice will be. we've recently seen the latest insult to citizens, as the court permitted big business to spend unlimited shareholder profits to buy the government it wants. sadly it’s just the latest step on the path to corporate authoritarianism. should obama seek a new justice to stand up for consumers, labor or citizens?
