"exposing corruption in government and corporate America." Like shooting fish in a barrel.

It's definitely like shooting fish in a barrel, the problem is getting people to actually shot the fish and then take 'em out and cook 'em. It seems as though they have to commit a really heinous act before anyone will do a damned thing to them.

ENRON came about because the ReThug congress got rid of the oversight rules that allowed this sort of thing to happen and congress STILL refuses to re-instate those rules.

So until our bought and paid for congress stands up to the Corporate Pimps that control our congress, nothing is going to change and as long as we have religious nutjobs being put into positions with regards to medicine nothing is going to get better.

Somedays I can't help but wonder just WHAT these people think of the USA? Do they think it should become a religious dictatorship? Do they think it should become a wholly owned subsidary of Corporate America strictly for the benefit of rich investors?

I wonder when the adults we were promised are going to show up?

Oh yeah, they had the election stolen from them.

Haven't been able to post much lately. My mother is in the hospital. What started out asw a kidney infection has evolved an Ovarian Cyst about 10 inches by 6 inches AND then when they went in the doctor found more problems. So we have been going there for the last three days and it's 45 miles each way. So I have not been able to come on here as much as I would like to.

JUST in case anyone was wondering.

BUT we came home early today, they have her on serious painkillers so she's off in la la land right now, which is fine with us because we are worried about the results of the biopsy of the cyst and the tumors they found on her appendix.

Some days.....

I am reading the interview that Tom and Joy did with RFK on BradBlog....good God...I thought Greg Palast was one smart dude but this guy is smarter....I mean he has a way with words....I had read his article in Rolling Stones and thought it was great and that he had filed a Lawsuit against the companies that make those retched voting machines....but his interview is eye opening.... guess what he says....if you give the correct information to the Republicans9public) and then ask them to voice their opinion....they vote the same way as Democrats!....not that we should be suprised....but he actually conducted the experiment...
He says First...campaign finance system has reduced our system to legal bribery then....the press that is controlled by the same corporate/rich/ in power sector (Repubs, NeoCons, Conservatives, whatever and however one wishes to lable them) give the wrong info thru Fox News, talk radio, etc to the public, and then when all else fails...they give the right to count our votes to four corporations that make machines that don't work or only work to turn Democratic votes to Republican in point right now...Cynthia McKinney....
and we wonder what has happened to our Democracy? Pharma is not the problem....they just fly high on the wings of our corrupt government and reap the benefits they were promised!

Doc! We got ourselves a bunch of sharp cookies here on your blog!( Maybe I should have said "really smart thinkers." Always remember, I'm old,... Jeez I'm old))

Beeta, just signed on to punk out again, but wanted to tell you......I didn't forget. ( remember....I'm old)

Rose Sweetheart (see disclaimer above), went through it with my mom and pop. What can I say? It's tough. But I felt a little better knowing that, at least, I was there to help. Funny thing, rather than being depressed about this drag on my life, I felt strangely grateful for the chance to really be helpful. weird, no?

And now, it's time for us to put our foot down! You listening, Doc? We ought to be able to sign in and continue a conversation
for just as long as it has legs. All this thinking you put me through, only to be denied satisfaction, reminds me of how they breed race horses. They bring in this male horse to get the female horny, then just at the "moment" they yank him out and bring in "The Champ Stallion." Time is money, I guess.

Tomorrow is another day.

OK.....I'll start the tale..

As stated, yes campaign financing is legal bribery, BUT it was done with the pressure of the corporations and of course, congress' greed. Two greedy mofos and you get the lousy system we have now.

I don't know if there is a solution, but I can hope. I keep pushing for Gore, because he has been here before. He UNDERSTANDS the corruption and how things work. THEN he was out of the system for the last several years, which has given him a new insight about how things SHOULD be. At least that is the impression I get from his speeches. He isn't being too PC anymore and that is what is needed in our political system.

I think a good leader would be able to push for and get campaigns financed through federal taxdollars. It's the only way to go now. IF a campaigner refuses to accept the money and instead opting to get private money, then the best way to stop that is to give the opponent the exact same amount in federal money.

IF corporations cannot bribe elected officials with threats of withholding campaign money and IF elected officials don't have to spend most of their time holding fundraisers, then maybe, JUST MAYBE, they might start doing the people's work.

As well it's time to stop allowing elected officials to immediately go into private jobs working for the same people who bribed them and get these jobs at highly inflated wages.

Personally I think a TEN YEAR time lag must happen before they can get into the lobbying business.

Oh well, IF I was in charge....
