Friday beaver image later
Okay here's the friday beaver shot I promised. No not mine I have no beaver I'm a guy.
One mans' treasure is another mans' trash.
At present Obama can do no right. It matters not what he does he's wrong in the eyes of the opposition. But for him I hold a growing distain that he's caved on almost every issue. He's acting like the corporatist that he is all the while trying to sell America that he's different than those across the aisle. We have a budget if you can call it that that does nothing to address the nations' issues all in an effort to appease Wall Street and the monied pockets that run these campaigns. Few if any rely solely on the donations of the masses and are now content to climb in bed with their now corporate masters. Let's get one thing straight, corporations are not people and are in existence for one reason and one reason only and that is to make a profit for their shareholders. They no longer have an interest in anyone else other than owners. Not their workers nor the American people. A vision so short sighted it will truly be the downfall of this nation. Why invest in research and development when there is no incentive to do so? Why bother to train workers when some other company can make a buck doing the job.
This is scary ground we're entering when any public service can be privatized for the benefit of the few who can afford the service and a handful of shareholders. We saw what happened with Enron. Luckily our state did not follow that same path although an attempt was made. To say that a corporation can do a better job of providing public services such as water or police or fire ignores the fact that those services are done without profit and therefore all monies spent go to service and not investors.
So now we have the clown circus in Iowa with each potential clown king saying how they'll fix the economy yet none of them has stated how they'll increase employment except by giving more to their corporate masters. We've seen how that's worked over the last 11 years is it now?
So it would seem that they got the treasure and we got the trash only we didn't even get that. All we got was an empty bag.
Bank fails later
And we have one bank fail today in Kansas.
