Wall Street & Google...A Love Affair?

bankster imagesThe Wall Street Journal is reporting, “U.S. government officials and business leaders were supportive but wary of taking sides in Google Inc.’s battle with China, a sign of the delicate tensions between the growing superpower and the West.”  On the other hand, the Financial Times reports that the Chinese government is calling on American companies operating in China - and there are thousands of them - to practice "self discipline," meaning censoring themselves and their information to not challenge the murderous, brutal dictators who run that communist nation.  And it seems that all the American companies - except possibly Google - are perfectly willing to stay in bed with a violent government that exploits and represses its own people as long as it increases their profits.  Apple, HP, GE, GM - you name it - they're all still in China and they all still have blood on their hands.  All of us do, in fact, as long as we keep putting politicians into office who support so-called "free trade" that makes it possible for these huge corporations to ship American jobs to China.

This is not a love affair, it's more of a gang bang, and Google has been a major stud. The lesser lads continue to line up behind Google in hopes of scoring some more of Google's left overs. As for China and the rest of the global Fortune 50+ players, China is merely reminding them of Madam's house rules.

Let's hope this leads to a nationwide revolt!

From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
