A Capital Idea Part 22: Capitalism is Sucking Us Dry

Before I move on to write about alternatives to capitalism, or how to regulate it, I have at least one more post about the evils of capitalism.

Fox News press seat

Hi Thom,

A couple days ago I received an email from Credo to sign a petition to not allow Fox the seat left by Helen Thomas. Yesterday, I received another email stating that due to all the signatures, it was decided by the White House Correspondents Association that Fox would not be allowed the seat.

Today in the Oregonian it was announced that Fox would indeed be given that seat.

Any idea whats up with this? I sure would like to know!

Sincerely,

Lisa

TRAVERSE CITY COMMENT

Traverse City was making a fortune off detainees....?

Anyone remember the details?

Haiti and Liberia

I am going to copy and paste some junk from my journal that I have not edited and briefly mention the relationship of some more recent news items, because its already 9:30pm and of course tomorrow is Monday and I need to shave...

news items: 1) Liberia is in the process of being "IMF-approved", and has not funded the truth and reconciliation commission regarding the civil war and state of affairs leading up to the ouster of Taylor.

and

Looks a potential Man in the Middle may have been used in SC. and many other sites may follow suite (Over 50 are using SOE today!).

Time to get Bev Harris from www.blackboxvoting.org and Brad from bradblog.com on ASAP.

We all need to find out if our local counties are using SOE software (aka Clarity).

Goal of The American Educational System - LEARN HOW TO PASS TESTS!

An excellent THINKING speech by a High School Student.

It seems that the American Educational Public School system is interested in one goal and that is to teach students how to pass tests. I can assert this to be true since my daughter is an elementary school teacher and I have heard from her how frustrating it is to be a teacher who is unable to inspire because of the pressure of being forced to only teach how to pass tests.

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
