I wouldn't be surprised to see him start dressing up in a Neo-Nazi uniform or Grand Wizard Robes! Well but his staff may have already been working REAL HARD to get him to remain with a business suit.

I've emailed the Texas congressmen indicated. I'll post this on Facebook and email friends and relatives as well.

真金不怕火, 怕火不真金。The fake gold is quivering in fear of the freedom of thoughts of the people.

Clintoris and the Demonkrapts were blaming everything and everyone else but their own avaricious pay-for-play ways for their electoral losses.

Wikileaks did not cause their downfall if they could not refute what was revealed. Russia might have supplied the leaked information but it was up to our intelligence agencies to counter the intrusions. Our intelligence agents probably had more interest in monitoring our vibrant porn sites than Russia's intrusions -- it's human nature, duh! They had to keep their mouths shut about most breaches of corporate "secured" information because our government works for these avaricious corporations which did not want to spend the money to fix the security problems for decades. Sometimes the intelligence agencies just wanted the trapdoors be kept open believing that they were the only ones smart enough to know them. To the dismay of their Dominatrix, our intelligence agencies, due to their lacking Altoids, are Not into doing blowjobs!

and as an aside - holy shit - trump is reaching new levels of insanity every day!

OK I can agree with your sentiment on an absurd comment - BUT - why bring it up after 6 months?

Let it die the silent death it deserved.

Yeah - I know - MY BAD AS WELL - for extending the visibility of your comment and so extending the visibility of the original offending comment.

sHillary lost because of who she is - not because of outside interference - which would have amounted to nothing "IF" sHillary was not guilty of so much!

That Drumpf (the epitome of evil running rampant) was able to win - just shows how fatally ill our government has become - that so many people would not vote for sHillary to keep Drumpf out of office.

This whole toxic current administration "IS" the fault of government (professional) for SHITTING on the general public (increasingly) over DECADES ! So much so - that - sane people could not support sHillary (really a poster-child for the wealthy few) even to defeat insane asshole Drumpf!

Alternatives2WallSt == prolix

Venezuelans under Maduro dislike our cat perching on the Oval Office in the Pounding-Laundry having used up so much toilet paper, of which they have shortage. The toilet paper didn't even serve any useful purpose other than kitty neurosis for a scent cover-up to evade predators. That's the answer to wtf.

What kind of progressives should "never own a firearm?" Why them and not you? Are you that much more reasonable than they? Are they lumped with the they of the racist right?

The people UNITED will never be defeated. If decent people must be armed to prevail then so be it. Don't divide us before we've begun to fight for humanity.

  1. please stop mentioning howard since it is clear you haven't read him.

  2. wtf - Venezuela??

  3. you are boring - nothing worse than that

as for the stock market what you say is true - so? do we need to go on and on and on?

Re Flip: "2. how about get money out of politics."

That is a good choice for emphasis. That was my thinking in the 1970's. Nobody seemed to focus on this core issue--with the sole exception of Ralph Nader's "Public Citizen" group.

Then over the years there was a trend of significant "campaign finance reform." Until--in 2010--the Citizen's United Supreme Court decision instantly turned all of that progress upside-down. All supposedly in the interest of "separating Wall Street from politics." (As you will learn if you can tolerate watching Citizen's United's bizarre foundational so-called "documentary." Which is illustrated largely by clips from ancient cartoon shows.)

To this day, there is of course a strong sentiment to overturn "Citizen's United." But which is legally complicated and is likely to take decades. Especially if we get more Republican presidents putting more so-called conservatives on the Supreme court.

Also, it seems to me that even those who protest against Citizens United are somewhat missing the point. Anyone who does not understand that the core of democracy is "one person one vote" should not be allowed to practice law. Let alone be on the Supreme Court. Even more than that--the Citizen's United verdict enables foreign governments to make unlimited unlisted donations to US political advertising. And yet, this is all defended by so-called patriotic conservative Republicans.

The bottom line. So long as we have mega-corporations that hire tens of thousands of Americans--and both people and corporations with a net worth in the tens of billions--"keeping money out of politics" is as absurd as keeping the ocean out of a lagoon.

And if you understand the stock market--then you understand the stock market is what enables and indeed "requires" those corporations to merge and to "grow or die" until they get so big.

As I learned from reading Howard Zinn: corporations legally have "human rights." Except that a corporation can murder or cripple thousands of people--and there is nobody to put in jail for it. If caught, usually it just pays a fine. The most we can do is force it to declare chapter 11 bankruptcy. And which still enables the founder to make off with millions or billions in profits--and of course just start another corporation.

Mega corporations are worse than kings. Kings would eventually die off or produce incompetent heirs. Corporations can be eternal. Although generally, they are overtaken by other corporations with the exact same money-first agenda. And those which do not have a money-first agenda are of course automatically weeded out by the stock market system.

So, to remedy "money in politics," we really have four choices.

  1. Make corporations illegal. And thus make it extremely difficult for anyone to develop any kind of business. And possibly turn the US into another Venezuela...

  2. Or... gradually reduce the tax benefits of stock market investing... and eventually tax stock market investing... so that stock markets--which are primarily responsible for the creation and maintenance of billionaires and of mega corporations--are eventually reduced in size and influence to the level of Las Vegas casinos.

  3. And/or... develop a non-Wall Street business model, similar to Newman's Own. But that profit-shares with consumers--thus developing overwhelming public support--thus out-competing Wall Street corporations until they gradually go extinct.

  4. And/or... for some economics professor to write a book--explaining why Third World countries can never win the stock market game--and are either suckers or corrupt when they attempt to develop stock markets. And to suggest an alternate bond-based system which does well the next time that the rest of the world is having a 2008-level stock market crash. And thus eventually for more and more nations to develop a just political system--and a truly sustainable economy. Which obviously must be within a non-stock market economy.

Very informative article! Obviously, nothing like the Scandinavian level of social justice can happen in America. Instead, the so-called pro-faith and pro-family party of Republicans has gutted public education and given many children malnutrition if not lead poisoning.

This will continue--unless perhaps--instead of camping out in front of Wall Street--some Americans start a nonprofit alternative to Facebook. And if this "Facebook alternative" is commercially aggressive enough to eclipse Facebook, similarly as Facebook eclipsed MySpace. And if--either "instead of" or "in addition to" all the Singles and Gaming advertising--posted prominent links to educational videos. Such as, explaining that the first so-called "socialists" are described in the Acts of the Apostles.

I am currently attempting to start such a "Facebook alternative." If anyone is interested in helping, please click my name and send a "private message." Especially if you live in the New England area.

The stock market's practices are guilty as charged, beyond reasonable doubts.
