I wouldn't make the distribution to all politicians yet but with the Court's decision on campaign funding the day has come that w/o corporate funds no one can afford to run for office.
Who was it, Rockefeller maybe, who said "The business of America is business." To the working stiff this can be misinterpreted to seem like what's good for business is good for me. It just that many corporations have a much broader and far reaching idea of what "business" incompasses. It's easier to be above the law when you create the law.
We've seen corporates create wars in other countries to insure friendly governments for their companies, use our military to protect their private assets, involvement in assassinations and use every politician available to convince us that it's all in our best interests.
When was the last time we had a righteous war?
One thing about getting older is you've earned the right to be cynical.Tracers work both ways.

Difference being Unions ruined entire geographic areas in terms of jobs and economies.
Corporations might actually build them back up.
And before you start in with the outsourcing rhetoric remwmber Obama sent 29 billion of the stimulus over seas and out sourced NASA to the Russians.

Yes Bush 2 did away with the space shuttle to make room for NASAs new Constellation program which was going to build a new vehicle for manned space flight, return to the moon and for return to the space station.
Lockheed Martin got the Contract to build the new vehicle and then Obama cut funding.
No more Constellation and now we're hitching rides with the soviets.
Or as the libz say "outsourcing".
You think we're picking on Obama but in all reality he's just a horrible President.
It's what happens when stupid people vote. They get what they deserve I suppose but the problem is the other half of our Country who has some common sense is suffering because of their stupidity.

By the way...the whole thing about God and guns...isn't that a little contradictory in itself....I mean one says thou shall not kill....and one says I was made to kill....
Oh yeah and American beer sucks...but most of the people here think beer is SUPPOSED to taste like piss...don't drink it if the mountains aren't blue....
Just food for thought...nothing meant by any of this....just wish we had quality in mind instead of quantity....ya know if it doesn't spray 650 rounds per minute or doesn't have 30 12oz cans of piss inside...we don't want it brother man.
I think I've gotten a lot out in this post...I feel better...you may have the floor good sir.

I hate having to post this sort of stuff for all Canadians to have to put up with when only a few Canadians just refuse to stop insulting the U.S. and Americans all of the time. So there.....Government is a disease......masquerading as its own cure…Ecclesiastes 10:2 NIV
