Call them what you will, I’ll call them “Democracy Killers.”
Too kind, PB. I call them GREED CAPITALIST TOILET-LICKING SCUM!
*(Too much? Not enough?)
I was trying to keep it clean for the kiddies who may have stumbled onto Common Dreams.
Alas, there most likely are no kiddies here, so Carl, have at it.
Just plain fucking ass-holes. We can make a fun game out of this.
Cannot get much clearer than that Patricia.
The title line should be edited to say,
"Russia has Oligarchs, the US has Cabals of Businessmen, Senators, Judges, Representatives, Governors, Military officers, spies and a president.
Russia has all those things too.
Yes. Capitalist Russia is beset with the same mental illness as all other colonial capitalist states.
Last I checked, Russia was never colonized. Their own home-grown capitaists deposed of the reformed socilaist state that Gorbachev envisioned, and created their present-day oligharchy, which is much worse than the US one.
If the US was Russia, every one of the Democratic candidates would be in prison, with Sanders and Warren poisoned or thrown off a balcony. Any opposition party or activist group except the Republican Party would be outlawed.
