I dedicated this series, or at least the parts of it that are not controversial, to the memory of divineorder, a special Caucuser whom all Caucusers miss. I hope that he would not have minded this dedication.
We’re way past the time for pitchforks and tumbrels.
Amazon isn't the only company that paid $0 in federal taxes last year
Under President Trump's new tax law, 60 of America's biggest corporations paid $0 in federal taxes in 2018, despite earning billions of dollars in profits.
For the predators in Big Pharma and Big Insurance, it just got real. That singular moment in Bernie's Town Hall on Fox, where Bret Baier asked the audience about Medicare For All was the bloodsuckers' 9/11.
...and a similar headline--regarding today's Times article--over at CommonDreams.org, on Tuesday: "As Sanders 2020 Campaign Gains Steam, Corporate Democrats Reportedly 'Growing Increasingly Nervous'," are basically telegraphing to the public that the writing's on the wall, as far as the Democratic Party's status quo's 2020 Presidential Primary campaign strategy is concerned.
My Republican friends, fellow registered Democrats, Independents, and Greens- let's just all of us say it out loud together: The people who lose most playing Red vs Blue are me and you.
Both Republicans and Democrats are in agreement. The Land Of The Free(tm) thinks that Assange should be extradited to the U.S., given a trial that will confirm his obvious guilt, and then thrown into a very deep, dark hole.
Don’t say bureaucrats in Brussels don’t appreciate irony. Following the arrest in London of Julian Assange, the co-founder of whistleblowing site WikiLeaks, MEPs overwhelmingly voted for a law on protecting whistleblowers.
I like to read Bloomberg. It offers such interesting opinions for why we can't possibly tax the rich or regulate corporations, while lamenting the mysterious and unsolvable tragedy of wealth inequality.
However, Bloomberg also publishes enlightening articles such as this one.
Examples of mainstream media coverage of Wikileaks and Manning releases of information are seen here in CNN and ABCNews 2010 reports on U.S. private contractors paying the Taliban for safe passage on supply roads.
"There is a planet named Pluto, but we don't have one named Goofy. Goofy would be a good name for this planet. It certainly qualifies."
I ain't got much to say here. Just perusing Twitter and #BernieTownHall is trending, though obviously being overshadowed by the Notre Dame fire.
And while I don't believe much in electoral politics the message here, the evidence that the divide and conquer bullshit isn't as effective as we've been led to believe, the fact that when asked people on the Right do want many of the same things we want - are all something to behold.
