To BIG to FAIL to BIG to JAIL

Must be that Jamie Diamond president of JP Morgan Chase, whose yearly salary is north of 11 million dollars and whose net worth is again north of a billion dollars , is to big to fail.

The 80 year MYTH of the AMERICAN MILITARY

Gulf war one was virtually the whole western world against Iraq. Another lie the Bush family told the world, remember the babies being thrown from incubator's in 1991, all lies. Why did Sadam invade Kuwait in the first place? Kuwait was slant drilling under Iraq's border ,stealing Iraqi oil, then selling it at discounted prices to the west, co conspirators in the massive theft.

Unfinished business of the Bush and Obama Administrations

With all of the right wing investigations wasting taxpayer money on Benghazi, Emails, Acorn etc. Why have the following never been thoroughly investigated? Remember the Anthrax scare and Colen Powels little vial of powder at the UN? Very little was ever revealed after some scientist supposedly jumped off a bridge (reminiscent of Putin tactics). 2. Why has the total lack of WMDs in Iraq never had a formal investigation? 3.

Drug prices Vs. CEO Pay

Corporate officer pay/compensation is based on several factors. One of these factors is earnings growth. The board of directors proposes the rules for incentive bonuses and the share holders vote on these massive give aways (I always vote against). The way to enhance earnings growth is to jack up the prices of their products. If the product is food, the consumer can subvert such price increases by foregoing the purchase of a particular item; however, if it happens to be a life saving drug, you have 2 options; pay or die.

AMERIKA, dumbed down racist apathetic GUN totting NINNIES

America is a society of dumbed down racist apathetic gun totting ninnies, they have lost every conflict they've been involved in from Vietnam to Iraq, despite overwhelming firepower and money. Excuse me America 'whooped' Grenada. As a bully their only 'TRUMP card' is the continued threat of use of their thermo nuclear weapons. The only country they can't terrorize with nukes is Russia, that's why the establishment that runs 'Amerika' hates them so much.

Corprate Taxation

Ford is building 2 new assembly plants in Mexico!

How do we get companies to stay in the US? If we give them tax breaks to stay, isn't that defeating one of the main purposes of them being here? And if it is - indeed - more financially profitable to relocate, how can we get them to go against making money? And if tax breaks are off the table, then what else can our government offer? Nationalist pride? And I understand that perhaps theses relocating companies don't need to keep making greater and greater profits...or do they?

Saudis VS ISIS

My understanding most ISIS or other Jahadists attacks in Saudi Arabia take the form of Sunnis attacking Shitites. Not other Sunnis or the Governemnt which is SUnni. Is that right?

PAGAN TRUMP

Donald Trump has told his close network of racist followers , that he will be announcing when he takes over the White House the first few weeks will be spent cleansing the buildings to remove what he calls as malicious spirits.

Trump has told his inner group that he daily carries a clove of garlic in his pocket, although thought to protect the user from vampires, it also is an age old remedy to ward off evil spirits.

Next ECONOMY: Flourishing in a NOT-for-PROFIT World?

For-profits are so over, say authors. Part of a Tyee series on capitalism’s crisis.

Jennifer Hinton and her co-author Donnie Maclurcan foresee an emerging economic alternative to state socialism and corporate capitalism: not-for-profit enterprise as the primary mode of business.

Organized Money Is Dangerous To Democracy

The question that is constantly being asked, particularly on the talking heads on television, is "what do the Democrats have to do to regain political power?" What does it take?
