Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others. . .they send forth a ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance." Robert F. Kennedy

It's Official. Corporations Rule
Farewell - American Democracy
It's Official. Corporations Rule.
The American Justice System has decided
Ask your two year old on a seesaw about balance, weight and power
when 2% golden greedy guts owns 98% of the worlds’
Wealth and Resources
true to scale model would render top image invisible
total world population Feb 2010:......... 6,801,000,000
2% Golden Greedy Guts population:........ 136,020,000
98% rest of us population:................... 6,664,980,000
“Fascism is about the state running things on behalf of corporations. Adrian Lyttelton in his book on Mussolini wrote that ‘Fascism can be viewed as a product of the transition from the market capitalism of the independent producer to the organized capitalism of the oligopoly.’ It was a point that Orwell noted when he described fascism as being but an extension of capitalism. Lyttelton quoted Italian Nationalist theorist Affredo Rocco: ‘The Fascist economy is. . . an organized economy. It is organized by the producers themselves, under the supreme direction and control of the State.’ ”
Could Terrorists do more to destroy America: Millions of Americans losing their life savings, losing their homes, losing their jobs, going hungry, without health insurance, with surging productivity among those still working accompanied by steady decline in wages and benefits, local and state governments running out of money, interest rates on savings at negative 0 (Zero), and everyone stuck in nightmare traffic………………….
Farewell - American Democracy
It's Official. Corporations Rule. By Eric Lotke January 21, 2010 -
People have been wondering for years who runs our country. People or wealthy corporations?
Today the Supreme Court settled the debate.Today's decision, Citizens United v. FEC, comes down decisively on the corporate side. It gives advertisers more power than voters, and tilts the balance of power even farther towards wealthy and corporate interests. The newly composed conservative court upset decades of precedent and settled expectations. As Justice Stevens says in dissent:Congress has placed special limitations on campaign spending by corporations ever since the passage of the Tillman Act in 1907. We have unanimously concluded that this "reflects a permissible assessment of the dangers posed by those entities to the electoral process," FEC v. NRWC (1982), and have accepted the "legislative judgment that the special characteristics of the corporate structure require particularly careful regulation." (Citations compressed).
Today's decision turns paper corporations into actual people, and gives advertisers more constitutional protection than voters.Progressives can't give up in the face of this setback. Bill Scher and Ralph Nader have called for a constitutional amendment. I'm all for it … though I think we can find easier solutions. We can start by publicly financing campaigns, and add public matches to any private funding raised. Adding speech rather than subtracting it avoids constitutional hurdles.Money has always had power, and always will. The theory of our capitalist democracy is that people voting provides a counterbalance. If money controls business and it controls the ballot box, we're all in trouble.All of this reminds me of a scene in my novel, 2044.Our hero finds herself in a political fundraiser, where her boss is raising money for a campaign. "Why bother voting?" she asks."Because it's a democracy. The process is crucial. If we didn't have elections people would lose faith in the government, and that wouldn't suit anybody. Besides, it's great fun. Get yourself a drink."
………... In every election, blasted on new candidate’s advertisements we hear the same rhetoric “how corrupt the current incumbents are and how they do not care about people’s rights, only corporate rights…but me, I will really, really, really help the people this time…..over and over and over again.
Every election we learn the truth about those who we voted for previously, and we do it all over again, incapable of comprehending a lie, wannabes, wanting to believe so desperately in a democracy that no longer exists. Used to be a lie told three times and you are out….. yet for at least 50 years, we continue to vote for the corporate selected candidates, funded by corporate money, who tell us exactly what we want to hear , and then vote for them. Each time they, our corporate selected (or swayed, influenced) candidates, proceed to do our corporate masters bidding. over and over and over again.
It takes a lot of corporate money to research the psychological and sociological core of people’s desperate desires and cries, then stage the dramatic Hollywood campaign theater between their selected candidates in the restricted two party system. How free we are never to question why a third party cannot get in the door of our dollar dominated system.
Now, (synonym) “Corporate Al Capone” demands no rules or regulations whatsoever, threatening us with economic doom (note the recent 500 point fall on wall street when faced with regulation) as he continues to steal, cheat, and lie for Profit, make us bail him out, continually consolidating power (M & I mergers) and using government resources and smart bombs to spread his deeds. All who oppose are terrorists, a guaranteed forever war, as the oppressed try to find food and shelter.
Advances in the science of energy would have eliminated all the above, providing prosperity and understanding for all people.
Review previous posts; while bad beliefs, and desires for abuse provide explanations for the destruction of the United States and our constitution, ignorance has never been an excuse for breaking or changing the constitutional law; or supporting corporate and economic systems destroying our country; nor will it be a defense for the natural lethal penalties forthcoming, the cyclic rise and fall being created, in unheard of proportions, both natural and manmade.
