America's Democracy is being taken over at every level by the puppet masters who drive the Tea Party, the NRA, and now, even those non profit entities we thought were working for the greater good, such as the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Komen lobbied to eliminate the research that would look into the environmental connection to breast cancer, lobbied against the public option for health care, and against public funding of diagnostic and treatment programs for under priviledged women. The fund raising juggernaut turns out to be nothing more than a funnel for money flowing to its own connected people and organizations. Since the big money is not in prevention of breast cancer those programs are opposed, and since the big money IS in treatment, Komen's funding flows to programs that push women into for profit venues.
More of this will pop up in the next week but here's an advance on what is to come from an activist who has seen it first hand...
It's time to stand up and fight!
Update: Is Komen a big fraud in the first place?
