Do Corporations Rule America?
American Thinker, by Christopher Chantrill

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 7/29/2014 7:01:57 AM

I suppose it´s natural that the average American believes that the Crash of 2008 was caused by greedy bankers and that the problem with health insurance is insurance company profits. After all, most Americans work for big companies, and they know that at any moment corporate security could appear at their cubicle to escort them to the exit. Employees know the power their bosses have over them; why shouldn´t the bosses have the same power to work their will over politicians? Not only that, but politicians pose as the worker´s friend. We´ll protect you from the ravishings of your lascivious employer, they

To too many, the word "corporation" means Boeing, Hewlett-Packard, GE, etc. But a corporation is also your lawyer, the little cleaners on the corner, the bakery in the strip mall. Small employers are usually corporations, too.

This writer is an idiot in his first sentence - most Americans DO NOT work for Fortune 500. Only 25% work for Fortune 500 - bulk of ´corporations´ are under 50 people. Reason why they are ´corporations´ is to shield individuals and their assets from Lawyers and the ´sue anyone for anything´ society we have become.

"In these respects, corporations differ from sole proprietorships and limited partnerships."

Corporations ARE NOT the mom and pop enterprises. And how many local businesses incorporate; issue transferable stock, etc? The fact is, large corporations can and often do wield political influence far above their actual personnel corporate numbers.

Money can talk, given the right recipient. Term limits would help reduce influence peddling. (maybe)

The problem is not that corporations (and others) buy politicians; the problem is that politicians are the kind of people that can be bought. Another problem is that politicians should not have the power to grant favors.

#8, my husband has a small manufacturing company. He created it in 1968 and has about 20 employees. His company is incorporated.

My brother and I own the old family ranch that has been in our family for 100 years. We are incorporated.

You are wrong about small businesses not being incorporated.

Nigel Farage: GOP Establishment Candidate
Can´t Beat a Democrat for President
Breitbart Big Government, by Robert Wilde    Original Article
Posted By: SpeedMaster- 9/8/2014 2:52:28 PM     Post Reply
On Sunday night, Nigel Farage, the Chairman of the United Kingdom Independent Party (UKIP), said that the next time Republicans prop up a “continuity, establishment candidate” for President of the United Sates, they are not going to win. Appearing on Breitbart News Sunday, airing at 7-10 pm ET on Sirius XM Patriot Radio and speaking with Breitbart Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, Farage said that unless you can “energize and engage, to use an old fashioned term, the blue collar voter, you are not going to beat the Democrats.”

Conservatives working to reclaim a rudderless GOP should contemplate forming a third party, Nigel Farage, the leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP), said in an exclusive interview following a U.S. tour during which he met with top officials including Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and News Corporation Chairman Rupert Murdoch. “I have no idea what the Republican Party stands for,” Farage said at the Breitbart News Embassy on Capitol Hill. “I meet lots of individuals within it who want it to say one thing or another, but collectively it’s pretty blurry, it’s pretty unclear,” Farage said of the Republican Party

Atlanta Hawks Owner to Sell Team
After Self-Reporting "Offensive" Email

Call it the Donald Sterling effect. On Sunday, Atlanta Hawks Controlling Owner Bruce Levenson announced that he will sell his interest in the team after self-reporting an "offensive" email from 2012 in which he said that white fans may be scared of black fans. "I trivialized our fans by making clichéd assumptions about their interests (i.e. hip hop vs. country, white vs. black cheerleaders, etc.) and by stereotyping their perceptions of one another (i.e. that white fans might be afraid of our black fans). By focusing on race, I also sent the unintentional and hurtful message that our white fans

Big Ten is biggest flop on a strange

Here’s what we learned from Week 2 of the college football season and what we will be talking about into next week. 1. It was a bad day for the Big Ten It started with Nebraska. The Cornhuskers were almost shocked by FCS school McNeese State, but thanks to Ameer Abdullah, they escaped unscathed. Except for maybe their egos a little bit. That set off a rough day in Big Ten country. Purdue lost to Central Michigan, Northwestern lost to Northern Illinois, Iowa barely beat Ball State, and Western Kentucky was with Illinois until the fourth quarter. But the most shocking losses

Laura Ingraham Blasts RNC For Supporting

Radio’s Laura Ingraham, a tireless champion of anti-amnesty efforts, blasted the Republican National Committee in a statement provided exclusively to Breitbart News, slamming the RNC’s apparent support of President Barack Obama’s plans to grant executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. "The RNC sure seems crestfallen that President Obama didn´t sign an executive amnesty for millions of illegal workers in the U.S.,” Ingraham said in an email. “I, for one, am glad that now we all know where the GOP Establishment´s allegiance really lies -- and it´s not with the American working class that is desperately looking for its champion.”

More Senate Dems Caution Against
Executive Amnesty Before Midterms

Despite admonitions from amnesty activists, more Senate Democrats are urging Obama against extending executive amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, especially before the November elections, according to a Politico report. “I have concerns about executive action,” Minnesota Democratic Sen. Al Franken, said in a statement Thursday, reported by Politico. “This is a job for Congress, and it’s time for the House to act.” In recent weeks Democrats in red states facing tough reelection races have pushed back against the president taking unilateral action on immigration reform. "This is an issue that I believe should be addressed legislatively, and not through executive order," North

White House Fuzzy on Timing
of Obama´s Executive Amnesty

President Obama insists that he still plans to make an executive decision on immigration reform, but his timeline for action grows increasingly convoluted. Obama and his team spent most of the summer previewing his executive action on immigration reform, vowing to fix what they describe as a “broken immigration system” without Congress as soon as possible. "I expect their recommendations before the end of summer, and I intend to adopt those recommendations without further delay," Obama explained in June, referring to a requested proposal from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

Third Parties Won´t Save Our Country
American Thinker, by David Long    Original Article
Posted By: SpeedMaster- 9/4/2014 8:18:32 AM     Post Reply
Thirty-six seats are up for grabs in the Senate and all 435 seats in the House of Representatives will be contested. Of those 36 Senate seats, 15 are currently held by Republicans while 21 are held by Democrats. Clearly, the math is on the Republican side, as is the fact that the incumbent party typically loses seats in mid-term elections. This upcoming November 2014 election is crucial for America and voting for a third party candidate will not achieve the victory. To end the Obama “Rule by Decree” power grab, we have to wrest control of the Senate from the Democrats.

Time for a More Assertive Congress

If our Congress wishes to fight its steady march into irrelevance it will have to actually go back to doing its job. Once upon a time, the first Article of the Constitution established all the powers that the Congress has and obligations that Congress must adhere to as they conduct their legislative business. Then, beginning in the 1930’s and 40’s, through the passage of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), and other actions, Congress abdicated part of its legislative authority to an ever increasing number of federal departments and agencies.

58 Senate Seats for the GOP?

A substantial number of political prognosticators, including the likes of the highly respected Nate Silver´s 538.com blog, give the Republicans a substantial chance of not only picking up senate seats in November, but of getting at least 51 and thus a working majority (50 seats would see a tie with Vice-President Biden giving the Dem´s a majority). Where the seers differ is not only the percentage probability of the Republicans gaining control of the senate, just how many seats the GOP will end up with. This is where the tracking poll sites like Real Clear Politics and Electoral-Vote.com come to the

The only interesting things about Douglas Carswell’s switch from the Tory Party to Ukip are that it took him so long and that he has acted alone. Any thinking person has been able to see for years that the Tory Party hates conservatives. It is a roadblock, not a road, championing the elite against the people. It is kept in being only by the BBC and various dodgy billionaires, who provide it with airtime and money out of all proportion to its real support. It has no actual aims except office at all costs. It has no actual policies either, only negative

The Two Faces of Islam

One face is for Islam’s useful idiots the other is for Islam’s faithful. The Koran is not arranged in chronological order. When it is arranged in chronological order it is clear that the Koran undergoes a serious transition after Muhammad’s first real triumph on the battlefield at Badr in 624. The period following that battle is called the Medina period of the prophet’s life. Conceptually this transition can be seen as a transition from the Old Koran to the New Koran. Unlike the transition from the Old to the New Testament, the transition from the “Old” Koran (pre-Medina) to the “New”

Less than 48 hours ahead of a planned address to the nation on how the U.S. plans to combat Islamic State terrorists operating in Iraq and Syria, President Obama dined at the White House Monday with a slate of foreign policy experts. Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State John Kerry were joined by some of Washington’s most established foreign policy hands, including Clinton National Security Adviser Sandy Berger and Zbigniew Brzezinski, who held the same position during the Carter administration. Former Obama national security adviser Tom Donilon was also at the dinner, as was former Undersecretary for Defense Policy

Some Latino Democrats, saying they are fed up with President Barack Obama’s broken promises on immigration reform, are threatening to sit out the midterm elections and claim there will be backlash at the ballot box come November. “Maybe only by paying a price at the polls will Democrats finally stop throwing us under the bus,” Carmen Velasquez, founder and retired executive director of Alivio Medical Center in Chicago, wrote in Politico Magazine. Immigration activists are voicing their anger on social media and in the press about Pres. Obama abandoning his pledge to act on immigration by the end of summer, instead delaying

Half of all bird species in North America — including the bald eagle — are at risk of severe population decline by 2080 if the swift pace of global warming continues, the National Audubon Society concluded in a study released Monday. "The scale of the disruption we´re projecting is a real punch in the gut," said Gary Langham, chief Audubon scientist. (Snip) By 2080, the bald eagle, the national symbol of the United States, could see its habitat decrease by 75%, the report says.

This morning, New York Times reporter Kim Severson spiced up her obituary for Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy by tagging him "a symbol of intolerance" who presided over a "restaurant chain [seen by some] as a symbol of hate." Here´s the relevant excerpt (emphasis mine): When he introduced himself, S. Truett Cathy often played down his job. “I cook chicken for a living,” he would say. And on the surface, that was true. Mr. Cathy, who died on Monday at 93, was by all appearances a humble Christian man from Georgia with little education who sold a simple sandwich: a

WASHINGTON--US President Barack Obama will tell the American people on Wednesday night that he plans to order strikes against Islamic State forces in both Syria and Iraq until the group is ultimately destroyed. The president´s plan includes additional support for opposition militias in Syria vetted by the United States, which will serve as a ground force complementing America´s air campaign. [Snip] The "comprehensive strategy," as described by one White House official, will involve "US military action and support for the forces combating ISIL [Islamic State] on the ground–both the opposition in Syria and a new, inclusive Iraqi government."

The House feed on C-SPAN did not capture the summer recess-worthy thongs.

Megyn Kelly tonight brought viewers the first part of her contentious showdown with Professor Ward Churchill, best known for his controversial comments about the “little Eichmanns” who were in the World Trade Center when the planes hit on September 11th. Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under
