Thanks to Deirdre and CD for putting this (and so much else) before the community and public - if only the corrupted media/press would do half as good a job of informing our people - the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth!
Profits, being the end-all and be-all of corporate America, works endlessly to corrupt our supposedly representative government Of, By and FOR the People, to the 1% and interests of the ultra wealthy and powerful.
Politicians, government and its mechanisms, and presidents, have been turned to gifting big-money (trickle-down), and that obscenely accumulated wealth has bought even more politicians, candidates, elections, representation, legislation and "trade" deals to pollute government as they have our Mother Earth.
An educated population, like the press, is essential to an electorate that is informed and can think and process info critically to make decisions based on fact, not jingoism, pablum celebrity rubbish, reality TV, misinformation, lies and propaganda.
Without independent education free of financial usury, and a free independent media/press - the Fourth estate - we become incapable of voting our true interests, we become pawns and serfs to a financial, political, military fraud and criminal con of vast proportions.......
