Unbridled Free Market or Predator State: Nestle bullying struggling small towns to turn over all their fresh water.
The town of Fryeburg, Maine, is not big — but it's got a huge problem on its hands. Nestlé is pushing the town to turn over its water system in a contract that could last as long as 45 years! Now, we're in the midst of an expensive legal battle to protect Fryeburg's water and stop this contract from going through.
KILLING OF CHILDREN
LEVITICUS 26:27-29 God threatened hostility, punishing people for their sins "seven times over," making them eat the flesh of their sons and daughters.
NUMBERS 31:17-18 God commanded Moses to kill all of the male Midianite children and "kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man." The virgins were presumably raped.
Using the American military to enrich the 1%'s Corporations is unethical even if it results in campaign contributions.
The best improvement in any culture would be if everyone treated each other the way you yourself desires to be treated.

I live in Virginia and the Bob McDonnell fiasco has been on the news every day. If the Democrats don't use this guy as a poster boy for the Republican leadership, they just aren't ready to win these elections. I have read or listened to some Democrats respond to his situation and they have littered their responses with "nice guy", "unfortunate", "mild Republican", etc. when referring to McDonnell.
In an article I just found by David Cay Johnston, if you created a graph showing the income growth for the bottom 90% of Americans since 1966 comparing it to the top 10%, top 1% and top 1/10%, what you would see will sicken you -- and convince even the skeptics that something must be done. (The article above shows the graph).
I've been canvassing and phone banking for Kay Hagen, and it's triggered an awareness. The Republicans probably were counting on the big economic meltdown, where millions of poor & middle class people were evicted and/or foreclosed upon, to improve the Republican's chances of total takeover. Why? Well, voter registration is tied to an address, and most American's think it's tied to their citizenship. They view it as a "right" and it doesn't occur to them that every time they move they have to re-register.
"The U.S. Government's Secret Plans to Spy for American Corporations" by Glenn Greenwald, The // Intercept
The special interests who crammed down a corporate constitution on the Afghan people knew it.
Kind of old news, but it is good to see the message is wheedling its way into the media.
Our military is a corporate acquisition and market opening arm of the 1%’s corporations. Or in Washington speak “a heroic force compromised of our countries best young men and women actively engaged in securing our great countries strategic interests”
