an investment that more than pays for its self, it is a investment that frees we the people from exploitation by the rich and powerful profiteers. Can not allow that to happen!
SAVE THE FETUS STARVE THE CHILD … The Corporate enslaving of the of the masses.
In listening to the topics being discussed on the radio program I can not help but see the connection of the enslaving of the masses as the underlying foundation of all that has transpired. While listening to Thom's show the other day you was discussing the issue of our toxic computer garbage being sent to poor countries where they are hiring children to salvage profitable components from old computers without protective equipment or knowledge of what they were being exposed to. The argument that the gentleman had given Thom to justify this was that they are starving and would we rather them starve? The real question is are we helping to enable the masses to lift out of poverty or do we enable the enslavers to suppress those efforts to maintain and increase populations of slaves. The budget battle is about cutting investment in we the people and lifting the masses out of starvation or investing that money in that which would enslave we the people. Everything from union busting, deregulation, racism, antiabortion, electoral proceedings and financing, social security, healthcare, etc.
We the people and our future generations along with our towns are being starved into slavery plain and simple.
I loved Thom's discussion in regards to the history that led up to the Citizens United ruling. Edward G. Ryan was correct in his view of the future questions that we would have to ask ourselves.
" Which shall rule, wealth or man? Which shall lead, money or intellect? Which shall fill public station, educated and patriotic free men or the futile serfs of corporate capital? "
Thank you Thom for sharing your wisdom and dedicating so much of your energy the the important task of educating We the People. You are a true patriot and a gifted and bright light in the darkness Justice Ryan warned about.
