Kinkroids, this is America. It is ALL about the money. Corp. America has and has had the money on hand to do all of things they are doing now. Dev. hirings and wages...all of them.
What we witnessing is a blatantly obvious quid pro quo...otherwise known as bribery. Or call it corporate extortion. They keep say a trillion or two offshore, they will still constantly fire every American they can go without or replace.
Corp. America has just been handed trillion$ from your children and their children and maybe even theirs too. Corp. America is doing all of this...with their money.
Great post Mr. Rodgers, but at this point corporate America always runs this country.
They run this country, regardless of whether we have a Democratic or Republican President.
Sure, it is MUCH better for social programs, when we have a Democratic President, and we can get a few things that many of us want, but:
These days, regardless of whether we have a **Democratic or Republican** President, behind the curtain, big business is pulling the strings and corporate America is going to run the show.
The changes, that I want to see, I doubt I will see in my lifetime, which is why I have given up on the Democrats.
My only real hope these days, is to see a viable 3rd party actually WIN the election, that is not in bed with corporate America/special interest groups, OR
a Democratic President, that is not indebted to corporate America.
*Which I doubt, I will live to see, so I have to be happy with the "crumbs" of progress, I may live long enough to see.*
crumbs seem to mean a lot these days, and is all we can expect
