Some of the examples: David Lauriski , spent 30 years in the mining industry before being tapped as the Labor Department's assistant secretary of mine safety and health -- he resigned last year to work for a mine-industry consulting company. Jacqueline Glassman worked for DaimlerChrysler before being appointed chief counsel and then deputy administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
At the Agriculture Department, Dale Moore was at the National Cattlemen's Beef Association before becoming chief of staff to the secretary. The undersecretary for Natural Resources and the Environment Mark Rey , who oversees the Forest Service, was a vice president of the American Forest and Paper Association; Mary Waters , assistant secretary for congressional relations was a legislative counsel for ConAgra Foods.
At the Energy Department, Dan Brouillette was assistant secretary for congressional affairs after lobbying on behalf of mining and oil interests. Last year, he joined Ford Motor Co. Former deputy administrator of the EPA, Linda Fisher , had been an executive at Monsanto Co. and left the agency in 2003 for DuPont.
"In order for the FDA to determine if Monsanto's growth hormones were safe or not, Monsanto was required to submit a scientific report on that topic. Margaret Miller, one of Monsanto's researchers put the report together. Shortly before the report submission, Miller left Monsanto and was hired by the FDA. Her first job for the FDA was to determine whether or not to approve the report she wrote for Monsanto. In short, Monsanto approved its own report. Assisting Miller was another former Monsanto researcher, Susan Sechen. Deciding whether or not rBGH-derived milk should be labeled fell under the jurisdiction of another FDA official, Michael Taylor, who previously worked as a lawyer for Monsanto."

All I see are a bunch of jumbled peices of information. Is there some sort of order these are supposed to go in? Or are we left as the general public to find out what all these separate things are supposed to support? I know you were talking about corrupt government, but without something more substantial than that, I'm afraid you're argument is almost moot. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I don't understand what the point was to this post if it didn't establish anything that we didn't already know. Maybe I missed something, and if so I hope you point it out to me.
