Dore Asks: Who’s More Corrupt, Democrats Or Republicans?

Really interesting discussion in this video. I won't give away the answer, but you know who is more corrupt, don't you. They talk about Trump being just a symptom of the real problem that this is now an Oligarchy, not a Democracy.

Special guest - Richard Eskow, Bernie Sanders' writer during his presidential campaign.

Midnight Special - Government, Taxes and The Class War

This is a reply I made to my brother in an email. It was a conversation about a story how "high income earners are leaving high tax states". My brother is a conservative fairly right wing former republican (like alot of former democrats) who is strongly for limited government and taxes with the conservative belief that people should be able to "keep what they earn".

The Weekly Watch

In Order to Form a More Perfect Oligarchy

If we are an Empire, who is the Emperor? There isn't one. It's a cabal. A cabal of billionaires and CEO's...integrated vertically and horizontally...united by profit...banks and money supply, the war machine, fossil fuels, big pharma and health insurance, food and seed production, congress and the courts...all while holding the big media megaphone...with tentacles reaching around the globe and into our local city, county, and state power structure. But the pressing issue of the day...and seemingly everyday...is what will T-rump tweet as the world burns?


Midnight Special - Shutdown City

At this writing, it's still up in the air. I won't even guess. Well, I will. I think they'll miraculously come up with an agreement to avoid a shutdown and the serfs will heave a big sigh of relief and express gratitude that their political representatives running this country for them (right?) have done a solid for the U.S. of A.

USA! USA! USA! We're number One!

It's all a charade, a mockery, an act, a masquerade, a farce.

So, we have had a right-wing coup in Brazil. In Venezuela, the left still controls the Presidency, but has lost control of parliament. In Argentina, the right has won the election.
