The Corportists Win Again

June 28, 2015

From Brietbart:

“There was a long line of advocates claiming responsibility for same-sex marriage’s victory at the Supreme Court on Friday, but a key driver was the support two years ago from 278 mostly multi-national tech companies that included Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Cisco, eBay, Electronic Arts, Intel, Intuit, Oracle, Twitter and Zynga.”

Mark-Zuckerberg-Celebrate-Pride-640x480You see these days it’s never about what’s good for America or “We The People” it’s all about what’s good for the multi-nationals and there most certainly is a pay-off because government always lines up with the Corportists. It’s called crony capitalism. Ditto with the extension of the EX-IM Bank, the Fast Track to Free (ha-ha!) Trade. It’s the march to globalism and the One World Order led by the elites. To hell with everyone else.

These mega-corps filed a brief at the Supreme Court in 2013 urging the overturn of DOMA (Defence of Marriage Act) and the pressure has been relentless from then until the Supreme Court ruling this week.

They claimed that the same-sex recognition by most, but not all states “needlessly burdens those companies with extra costs and bureaucratic tangles.” They complained that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) put the companies in the uncomfortable position of being forced “to treat one class of our lawfully married employees differently than another, when our success depends upon the welfare and morale of all employees.”

And don’t expect it to stop there because they won’t be happy to have gay marriage the law of the land, they’ll now go after our 1st Amendment right to free speech and religious freedom. If you disagree you’re a hater and a homophobe. They can never let it go. Businesses and individuals will purposely be targeted until they are ruined. You watch.

The Export-Import Bank (EX-IM Bank); Just Another Costly, Govt Agency Benefiting Huge Corporations At The Expense of Small Businesses & Taxpayers

August 8, 2014

Just think how many things could be taken care of by government that isn’t or how much more smoothly current programs could run but aren’t because of a supposed lack of funds (the VA, the IRS and BORDER SECURITY to name just a few). The Export-Import Bank is another sterling example of not only wasted dollars, but lost jobs and the continuation of crony capitalism. It gives taxpayer backed loans, credit and credit insurance to FOREIGN companies in the hope they will buy US exports.

Here are 3 good reasons not to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank which will be voted on shortly after the August recess:

  1. It’s expensive
  2. It doesn’t boost U.S. Exports
  3. It’s crony capitalism at its most obvious (bureaucrats providing profit to private players)

Every time reauthorization for the EX-IM Bank comes up the politicians who like it (due to kickback & bribes received) claim it should just be reformed, but we all know how that goes in Washington D.C. don’t we? And BTW, Obama spouting off in the beginning of this video flipped-flopped on the EX-IM Bank between the time of his 2008 campaign and now. Watch the Liar-in-Chief  do what he does best.

This is Really Nasty Crony Corporatism & It’s Putting Our Sons and Daughters in Prison

November 19, 2013

Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) in 2012 sent 48 governors letters offering to buy & operate their state prisons for a 20-yr contract which included a 90% occupancy rate guarantee for the entire term.over-crowded prisons

Everyone’s in favor of reducing crime and getting criminals off the street, but contracts between private corporations and the public sector insuring up 100% occupancy rates (as in Arizona) just smells bad.

“America has more prisoners than engineers or nursing assistants, secondary school teachers, construction laborers, childcare workers, physicians & surgeons, social workers or lawyers.”

Could this where mandatory prison sentencing came from? Or why the ineffective ‘War on Drugs’ (like pissing in the wind) remains in effect? This Huffington Post article sites studies showing that mandatory minimums fail to reduce crime, waste taxpayer money and violate common sense.

But back to the guaranteed occupancy rates imbedded in prison contracts. According to Zero Hedge at least 65% of all contracts with the public sector have “occupancy guarantees”. It goes like this. A prison has a 98 or 100% occupancy guarantee, the ACLU yahoos scream abuse due to overcrowding so officials throw open the gates while murderers, rapists, check-kiters & petty criminals all go free. Then law enforcement gets busy and fills the joint to occupancy again and pretty soon all of us & our kids have prison records. Crazy huh?

Oh and if they can’t find enough criminals, the taxpayer are left holding the bag for the guaranteed prison profits. Just another government policy decision insuring corporate profits. Ya think unions were involved in this scam?
