Coca-Cola Buys Politicians with $3MSunday, December 9, 2012
A November headline in the Chicago Tribune: “Coca-Cola gives $3M to city for anti-obesity, diabetes efforts.” As long as the big food companies that spearhead the corporatocracy can keep buying politicians and bribe them to champion the conventional wisdom that holds up Big Agra-Big Food as a “health partner,” this country will continue to spiral into the health sewer. Once again, the poor people of Chicago will lose, as they will be subjected to the arbitrary whims and misinformation of the anti-obesity campaign. Meanwhile, Rahm Emanuel struts around with a smirk as evil as his intentions. Thanks to Bab Adetiba for the heads-up.
