Can it teach me kung fu?
"People aren't willing to accept responsibility for themselves and their kids" Buillshit. The practice is deceptive and industry is play on the ignorance of the consumer.
There is no doubt in my mind this was part of the ROI model when they were thinking up ways to pilfer your dollars in somewhat covert ways... there is also no doubt they can make this effort much more transparent for the same reason.
I have first hand experience with it - and it's clear, as the message came from the top to drive down wages... look for foreign workers. Laws be dammed, particularly in right to work states. It's a sad but real truth to this situation of immigration. Is it everywhere - of course not - but I'd wager mostly everywhere.
Exactly - there are plenty of workers here in America that can fill that void - employers are just reluctant to pay the proper price for it.
You need to get involved more early on int eh process - and ensure the candidates that are groomed are not the minions you so aptly referred to.
...but yeah - I hear you loud and clear on the false choice argument.
Evermore, even our education system in the USA is now a "big" business, just like healthcare - this is despicable. Its a disgrace. It's been going on for decades, albeit at a somewhat chelonian pace; and now it's accelerating. Keep on voting GOP and corporate clown Dems... and this result will continue. Young people- you must get and vote - save your generation. Mine is lost to the oligarchs.
Sounds like Orwellian double speak to me...
Yes, I am aware.
...but isn't this really about information control as opposed to a business model initiative? Print has been dying a slow death for the better part of a decade now.
...or of course, just get rid of congress once and for all and elect working class people who know better from the get-go. It comes down to getting the money out of politics. It's time. Cheers!
... to legalize and regulate.
Yes! the government's economic arm... but this is different than the corrosive state of affairs we have today, wouldn't you agree? And by extension of government, you are to say they are governing powers? No. emphatically not. But that is indeed what is starting to happen in today's society. A parent / child relationship is not what we have... and in my mind there is no such thing as a "free market" present in the USA. Adam Smith's invisible hand is a myth here... its stroking the ego of the fascists right now fact. Its either regulated, policed, and maintained to operate with our corruption, or its corrupt to the bone. There is no in between save for one scenario: the morality of man gets with it, so as to not needing the policing and regulation. I am not suggest theocracy here - I am suggesting morality as a cultural underpinning. My point being it needs to be a one way relationship - which it is - but in the wrong direction at the moment.
"They see the state and the corporation as opposing forces." Benito would be proud.
