Forum Post: Corporations are curious beasts...

Corporations are curious beasts, they devour and adapt, in the 1970’s when the Equal Rights Amendment was moving though the country, they took the opportunity to create the “two income family”. Now they use the fear of immigrants to beat back efforts to provide public services. I guess that’s why wealth inequality is worst than its ever been and the plight of the average American hasn’t been this bad since the great depression. With an economy going at near 3% a year, 10 years after the collapse, almost all the gains are going to the very rich while the GOP, holding all seats of power, plan to reduce retirement benefits to pay for even more tax cuts. If the American people don’t wake up and start voting our nuclear arsenal will fall into the hands of religious fundamentalists. Was that an odd segway? Well desperate people do desperate things, the corporations should think about that. If we don’t stop the GOP from making the situation worse with even more tax cuts and program cuts then people will lash out and we will be thinking as fondly of Trump as some short memory people are of W right now.

Don't read this either ...

OR watch this ...

OR the extended version ...

of the now seminal documentary film ''The Corporation'' .... as it might result in - Cognitive Dissonance!

Trying to absolve the Democraps of ANY Responsibility & Complicity in the Corporate Capture of U$A is

myopic at best & criminal at worst! Obomber was The Deporter In Chief & he a was Drone Killer too btw.

I'm guessing that the Cynthia Nixon v Andrew StatusCuomo contest for NY Governor, meant N0THING?

HOW are "the GOP, holding all seats of power"? Because Corp.Dems/DNC don't offer Real Alternatives!

I do get that in Repugnant voting AZ, U>frf are a radical BUT here, U are a relatively conservative voice.

It's up to U to try to understand WTF is going on and see The Class Issues at play in 2 Party State U$A.

U really have to try to realize that just because many here see Corp. Dems for what they are, that U can

not simply accuse us of being US Greens or even for tRUMP! That is called reductionism & is stupid tbh,

ad iudicium?

So you still working to divide the left? and help the GOP win so do you support Alex or is she a "gop lite" now that she is running as a Democrat? You really aren't very clear in your posts are you joining the HARD CORE DEMOCRATS or are you still pushing those ego whore Greens? go ahead tell us or are you too chicken shit?

You know I remember when I posted that OWS should challenge Chuck Schumer in the primaries and I got zero support for that ideal from you, so are you doing this to create change or are you just here to promote your ego whore Greens?

Do U think Democraps are "the left"?! Why are U hiding behind Alex O-C's skirt? D'U ever read links?

U are trapped in your binary duopoly, unable to see why eg.Bernie'd win as an Independent, aren't U?

respice, adspice, prospice ...

"Tom Perez Says DNC Would Continue to Back Any Democrat Who Votes for Kavanaugh ... Sparking Progressive Fury'', by Jake Johnson:

"The invisible chokehold of Big Money vs. people .. vs. the testimony of women on gruesome display. Again." Stay in denial and ''Don't read this" either OR wakeTF up to WTF Corp.Dems/DNC are up to!

e tenebris, lux?
