By all means, name those corporate bad actors!

FORD used to be an acronym for Found On Road Dead. The story is, engineers deliberately created a number of American cars and trucks to vibrate so that they pulled themselves apart.

Verizon sponsors 5G microwave technology, which probably won’t cause quite as much cancer as the cigarette industry but you never know. When women put their smart phones in their bras they get breast cancer clusters where the phone is. People are getting sick from cell phone towers.

I am just waiting for a winning candidate, whose candidacy has been/is being fueled by corporate money, to tell the donors when they call in for favors, thank you for your donations to my campaign but I promised you nothing in return, I am here to work for the people, so go to the back of the line. Yeah, I know, dream on!

Corporate America loves them some government stagnation. To them and America’s oligarchy, malaise means more money.
The only things the wealthy ask of government are no taxes, no regulations, and the obstruction of any organized effort by masses to change either of those two dynamics. And they always, ALWAYS, get what they ask.
The only interesting thing about the senate being 50/50 would be to see that, when push comes to shove, what will the corporate democrats like Manchin, Warner, Sinema, Schumer, and the like do if a piece of truly progressive legislation hits their desks. I’m pretty sure I already know.

It’s rare when big money fails to win a bad candidate an election. May this be one of those times.

Ah, you make me recall the old line from Rodney Dangerfield,

At least he admitted it!

I’ve been on a Menken roll lately, the shoe fits.

Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance. No one in this world, so far as I know—and I have researched the records for years, and employed agents to help me—has ever lost money by underestimating the intelligence of the great masses of the plain people. Nor has anyone ever lost public office thereby.

IN the 90’s 60 mins did a story on a Scandinavian Doctor who could tell you if you were right of left handed from CAT scans of the brain by which side of your head had the extra dark spots around and just above the ear.

Quite a list of Corporate sponsors. I’ll bet Nancy and Ol Joe are jealous as hell !

The average IQ is two digits, not three.

Have you not been doing so?

If that.
