Kesmarn’s brilliant article, Please, tear that price tag off!, impresses the powerful image of our democracy and citizenry as a 500 pound patient, too bloated to help itself or accomplish even the most minor tasks required for its subsistence and survival. Citizens United may have been the last straw in […]

Corporations as people

Corporate America has been encroaching on our government for decades.  Slowly, but steadily increasing its reach within our legislative, executive, judicial and regulatory institutions.  Our congress passes laws written by corporate lobbyists, appoints regulators who have deep and ongoing industry connections and allows the regulated to write their own regulations.   I am not […]

The spin of yesterday’s election that is all over the MSM today is, “It’s the year of the woman”. Some would beg to differ. On the surface it is true, several winners of primaries yesterday were women. But the case could be made that half of the four most prominent […]

Well, Joe Biden was certainly right when he said that President Obama would be “tested” soon after taking office. The question is not so much “how did he do” on the test as it is, “when will the tests ever stop?” It is perhaps more accurate to look at these […]

1. Under the sea, an enormous, so-far-unstoppable eruption of oil endangers a huge swath of ocean, as well as the lives and livelihoods of a multitude. 2. On land, Climate Change has ushered in severe weather devastating towns and cities. 3. In our society, economic powers have wreaked havoc and […]

There is something sadly symbolic in the birthplace of democracy being destroyed by banks. The domination of corporatism over democracy across the world, using the freedom of democracy against itself, is a sad, terrorist type strategy that has unfortunately succeeded to date. a. Greece created the roots of democracy. b. […]
