President to Appoint RIAA Lawyer as Solicitor General

  by    1   0

It has been a disturbing trend in recent times for the line between the United States government and US corporations to vanish.  Through lobbying, appointment and campaign contributions many argue and feel that we have not been a government of the people, by the people and for the people.  This author thinks the only part of that phrase they kept was “buy” for now corporation buy the officials to buy the people and force the people to buy whatever they spin.

In my opinion, it is not specific to any party or administration but simply an era of apathy and lies.  Why else do we have a phrase “business as usual in Washington”?

According to Wired:

President Barack Obama nominated former Recording Industry Association of America lawyer Donald Verrilli Jr. on Monday to serve as the nation’s solicitor general.

If confirmed by the Senate, Verilli, now the White House deputy counsel, would assume the powerful position left vacant by Elena Kagan, who was elevated to the Supreme Court. Obama said he was “confident” Verrilli, one of five former RIAA attorneys appointed to the administration, would “serve ably.”

I wonder how many former EFF attorneys are serving on the administration?
