Just the other day Land of Lakes butter decided to rescind support for Representative Steve King of Iowa.
I suppose they think he is some sort of racist or bigot.
Well, maybe he is. I don’t know. He sure sounds extreme. There are many, many of his views I disagree with.
My question is this: Why does Land of Lakes butter think at all about what kind of views Steve King, or anyone else, has toward anyone?
The only thing Land of Lakes butter should think about in our current system is making better butter here in America.
That’s what Land of Lakes butter should be concerned about.
Now, if you’re a social activist and believe that Land of Lakes butter should be concerned about what Steve King thinks, then you should ask how much money Land of Lakes butter makes by selling butter to the US military in Iraq and Afghanistan.
How much money does Land of Lakes butter make off our global killing machine?
Does Land of Lakes butter benefit by supporting war?
War and subsequent exploitation of peoples is the ultimate form of bigotry.
Maybe Land of Lakes butter is the ultimate bigot here.
Maybe Land of Lakes butter ought to shut its big, fat mouth.
Maybe Land of Lakes butter along with other corporations shouldn’t be allowed to lobby at all.
Maybe Land of Lakes butter along with the other corporations shouldn’t be allowed to contribute to political campaigns.
People who sit on a high horse get knocked off.
At any rate, the job of a business is to add value to society, and the best way for Land of Lakes butter to do that is to make better butter.
That’s why Land of Lakes butter exists.
Land of Lakes butter is not a person regardless of what the Supreme Court may think or dictate.
As a non-person, Land of Lakes butter has no soul, no sense of shame, and no country. Given the time, they will prove just that in spades.
Of course this is the modern trend: using global corporations to decide who your representatives will be via campaign contributions.
If this is what you are for, welcome to Corporate America, your new feudal overlord.
There is no need for you to think anymore, my friend. Land of Lakes butter will take care of that for you.
In his own way, JFK foresaw the future we now live in and offered an alternative vision. For that he was killed.
