It's a damn shame.

Compensation for the 10 highest paid corporate CEO's for 2008 has just been released by the high-class watchdog Corporate Library.

On average, each of the 10 received $222 million.

The least paid received $72 million.

The highest paid received $702 million.

There is something damn wrong with this country!

……. By Design and Charter, served the public good



……. And they should be required to do so again.



I believe that Major… Continue

The vampires are still running the blood bank.

Can President Obama’s plans for economic and social reform succeed with two strikes against himt? With two strikes against him, will he hit a homer or strike out? Progressive elements of the Democratic Party are going to have to push both the President and the Congress very hard for Obama’s presidency to be successful. There is little evidence of either that push or his success so far.



The first strike against Obama is the corporate-governing-elites-controlled Congress, albeit with a… Continue

How long have we got?

“We live in an age of corporate dominion just as we once lived in an age of domination by royal families, kings, and warlords. Our culture is dominated by television and petroleum.” Our demands for entertainment and consumerism “depends on an unbroken supply of both“.



We live in a representative democracy where, in theory, our interests are represented in both Congress and the Administration. In reality our representative democracy is where state and district democracies individually… Continue

Fascism Coming to a Court Near You: Corporate-Personhood & the Roberts’ Court

This health care battle within our communities has little to do with health-care and everything to do with corporate power. I hope people in the town hall meetings wake up and smell the fascism. Corporate interests are polluting some peoples views so they cannot see the real issues through their smog.



Fascism Coming to a Court Near You:

Corporate-Personhood and the Roberts’ Court




As the 1983 American Heritage Dictionary noted, fascism is: “A system of… Continue

Obama Placates with Palliatives

At the top of Obama’s domestic policy agenda are 1) the economy, 2) health care, and 3) education. Looking at each, what is mostly evident is palliative placation; palliative being the soothing of a disorder without effecting a cure and placation being, to allay our fear. In effect Obama speaks of concerns of substance without substantive plans or solutions.



On the economic front, Obama continues trickle-down-upside-down-socialism, of Reagan/Bush; Wall St. favored over Main St. It’s… Continue

NO MORE FEEDS PLEASE! How abundant information is making us fat.

Fat David by Scholz & Friends, Hamburg, Germany



Lately I've been unusually cranky: It may be the frustrations of a difficult marketplace where economic adversity forces one to tolerate the otherwise intolerable. It may be the extra hours of summer sunlight here in the Pacific Northwest, which brings about an initial euphoria that can descend into mania. But with a gnawing conviction, I've come to… Continue

The Inner Workings of Systemic U.S.Corruption (Amicus Brief)

Laid out in this brief is a summary of how unchecked corporate political spending corrupts our system and distorts our economy. The brief is an effort to block CITIZENS UNITED (aka corporations), from successfully appealing to overturn laws that restrict them from contributing even more political money to influence their agendas. It's ironic that in a time of deep recession, --caused by corporate rent seeking and outright fraud-- that we have to… Continue
