We Pledge Allegiance to the Corporation...

The Supremes ruled 5-4 yesterday that workers, as a class, are not going to be allowed to seek redress for discrimination and unfair treatment by huge corporate guts.

If you're enmeshed in those tentacles, you WILL take what's meted out to you, bitch!

Meanwhile, and to demonstrate their total obeisance to the Corporate Appetite in North Carolina, the new Republican majority in the NC House, in its waning hours of wrecking the state for the next generation, passed a wholly gratuitous tax loophole for multi-state corps doing big business in the state.

How can there be any doubt who owns government at every level in this former great Republic?

"if ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. we seek not your counsel or your arms. crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, may your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were EVER our countrymen." SAMUEL ADAMS

The Department of Commerce under the leadership of Perdue is visiting in Paris to the tune of $30,000.00 to $40,000.00. The rooms are $350.00 per night. Go figure about the support for business by Perdue. To be fair, tell the whole story.

Very good quote and words, ain't bea.

Now, why doesn't JW believe in them? The Williamsons only want more government control, more regulations, and more taxation.

And 'not just on the "rich".
