Corporations & The Public Interest

Thom, on several occasions I've heard you talk about how early corporate charters included a requirement that corporations act in the public interest -- and that somewhere along the way those requirements were eliminated. I've tried to do a little research on that point but haven't found anything that puts it quite the way you do. Can you -- or some other reader -- point me toward a good reference on this matter? Many thanks.

Smoke Some Reality: Walker’s Mining Bill could create a Superfund site in Waukesha County.

Making people vote against their own best interests makes me wonder if the country shouldn't have a mimum IQ standard in order to vote.

Walker’s Mining Bill would cause the State resources $10’s of billions in damage while making millions for a select few - Superfund Site.

Classic Republican dis-economic policy.

How can public officials get away with something that is so clearly economic sabotage when they vow to uphold the best interests of our society? Wages from mining will be a pittance compared to the loss in value to the State's resources, including drinking water. Is it because the financial responsibility for cleaning up a Superfund site is the responsibility of the Federal Government and not the State?

Authors of Comments on Keystone article reek of being versed republican operatives

Read some of the Comments that follow this article. They are not in the typical voice, tone or candor of most of the run of the mill nuts. These sound like professional nuts hired by Big Oil..

Why Liberals Favor Campaign Censorship

If people can be totally convinced by a few campaign ads, then the real objection is not advertising but democracy itself.


On January 10th, Project Veritas reporters walked into New Hampshire Polling Locations during the Presidential Primaries, saying dead people’s names. We stated the name of a dead person we got from the NH obituaries. The names of the deceased were both Registered Republican and Democrats And in almost every case, saying a dead person’s name, we were handed a ballot to cast a vote.

Iceland show

Just listened to Thom's Iceland show podcast. While all the other idiot media was countining non-stop about the Republican convention - and what it means to America - Thom was actually doing something incredibly informative.

Trump Discredits The Election Process

President Obama is absolutely disgusted with Donald Trump's talk about a rigged election.

He made that very clear this week during a press conference at the White House - in which he called Trump's conspiracy theories about voter fraud "unprecedented".
