Domestic spying on Innocent American Citizens and America's bogus war on terror, Educate yourself: it is all manufactured by the Plutocracy, led by Big Oil; to retain "ownership" of our government. -
It’s not news that we spy on other countries. After all; “Nations don’t have friends, they have Interests”.
Domestic spying, of American citizens who have not committed crimes; that is another matter. The fact that our government needs to engage in this type of spying; which we previously decried as “Totalitarian”; when it was performed by the likes of the USSR and East Germany, now becomes “necessary” when America does it.
"But we have to defend ourselves against the evil terrorists!!!"
Sure we do; because in order to justify to the American people why we need to go to the “evil terrorists’” countries for the true purpose of making it safe for American Corporations to plunder their OIL; we first have to establish in the minds of the American people that these middle eastern people are our enemies. (see Major General Smedley Butler - War is a Racket)
Did you ever notice that all of these “international Terrorists” come from, or were trained in small, third word countries that have OIL or other natural resources that America or it’s allies have an interest in?
The coincidental benefit of always fighting a “War against Terror”, is that now you have justification to spy on American citizens and monitor the political dissidence that would threaten the Plutocracy that really own this country and it’s government.
Here is one change we could make in our country that can stop or greatly reduce this Plutocratic induced war on terror: Switch to renewable alternative energy sources that can displace fossil fuels. More research needs to be done regarding Hydrogen / Electric hybrid systems of energy storage, which could be the answer.

Boycott Mc Donald's Restaurants & Wal-mart for effectively making the American Taxpayers subsidize their crappy / unhealthy products; by paying their workers so little that they qualify for government assistance programs. -
————-Disqus conversation from CNN—————
This is about Mc Donalds not only exploiting their workers by paying them less than a living wage; this is about Mc Donalds making American taxpayers subsidize their restaurants by paying their workers so little that they are eligible for public assistance programs. So the real cost for a $1 menu item is probably $1.25 after you factor in the extra taxes we need to pay because Mc Donald’s workers get public assistance.
How is it Mc Donalds is able to prosper and expand in Europe and other regions that have a substantially higher minimum wage relative to the cost of living, but they (Mc Donalds) scream that they won’t make money here in America if forced to pay their workers more?
Mc Donalds, Wal-Mart and all the other big chain, multi-national corporations are all doing the same thing: exploiting their workers and forcing American taxpayers to subsidize their corporations though the benefits we must provide their underpaid workers.
Certain political parties like to complain about people milking the system and staying home to collect welfare because “we need to reduce their benefits, welfare shouldn’t pay more than work”.
NO! The problem is, big corporations who pay too little, making an incentive for people to stay home and collect benefits. You can not lower benefits to lower than what it takes to survive; and with a straight face, say that we have a “societal safety net”.
Response by “J.W.”:
Huge corporations who were able to grow to their current size and international stature by Exploiting American Workers, need to put something back into this country, not rob both their employees, and the taxpayers at the same time as they are currently doing.
If you use this logic, then the real oppressors are the customers of these discount places, who insist on irrationally low prices. (That would include me, btw.) I suppose we could raise the minimum wage - which would force retailers to lay people off and raise prices, which would discourage a large portion of the customer base from shopping, which would lead to even more people losing their jobs.
You okay with that?
Counter Response by us:
Good argument but you fail to take into account how much Capital these huge corporations and their largest investors have sitting in banks both here and abroad.
Capital, billions of dollars of it, beyond any legitimate “rainy day need”, emergency need, or any fiscally conservative business expansion plan(s). Capital sitting in banks not being circulated into the economy. Capital that exists only because these corporations, their stockholders, and executives exploited their workers and the American taxpayers.
This capital needs to be returned back into circulation into the economy, after doing so; there will actually be more hiring and economic prosperity because more money will be changing hands, not horded away as “dead” excess capital, only serving to bolster the egos of those bank account holders.
Back when the highest tax rate in America was 90% is when we saw the largest economic growth in this country. Corporations and the rich invested their excess capital back into their businesses to expand them and increase production and efficiency; or were forced to pay that money to the government as taxes. With that excess capital that the government previously received from the rich, we build all sorts of public infrastructure projects which today are crumbling from lack of maintenance funding.
Today, here in Texas they are building Multi Billion dollar Toll roads paid for by privately funded bonds, while non-toll roads are crumbling in disrepair. Fifty years ago these roads would have been built as free public roadways and all roads would have been properly maintained, not just the lucrative toll roads.
This is how excess capital, not being put back into the economy weakens our country and makes our economy and our nation worse, not better.

If you value your privacy, don’t own a Tesla.
Some governments, corporations and people casually attempt to undermine our rights by trying to prohibit us the right of anonymity under pretense of the most social engineered sentence of our modern society: ”If you have nothing to hide, surveillance won’t bother you.”
All of Tesla’s vehicles contain an always on internet connection that can not be physically removed from the vehicle.
Sources close to Tesla claim this permanent internet connectivity: which allows for real-time, detailed surveillance of the vehicle, is for driver safety, and to ensure that the vehicle is functioning properly at all times. We see this as one of the biggest upcoming threats to privacy in the 21st. century.
As one can expect; other auto manufacturers will eventually follow Tesla’s lead and there will come a day soon when purchasing a vehicle without built in internet connectivity will be impossible. Don’t expect the United States Government to enact legislation anytime soon to prevent this. Instead, vote with your wallet and purchase vehicles and other electronic devices that are designed in a manner consistent with individual safety and privacy.

Cancer is mostly preventable, but American Medicine won't tell you this -
It is interesting how countries with national healthcare approach the issue of Cancer: treatment and prevention.
In America it seems that we are hell bent on finding a cure for Cancer with no mention of prevention or living healthy. The Canadian government and others with national healthcare tell their populace that the best Cancer medicine is Cancer prevention.
Apparently when the government has to pay for your healthcare they are more interested in keeping you healthy and would therefore begin to regulate the food and drug industries to a greater degree; forcing them to produce healthier products.
In America, lobbyists from the huge food and drug industries corrupt our political system and prevent the government from regulating the food and drug industries in a way that would force them to produce healthy products.
This is why you will never see any serious cancer prevention discussion and education coming from the United States government. In our form of capitalism, everything is a path to money: first sell people unhealthy food, then sell them medical treatment and drugs to try and cure the disease that they got from eating the unhealthy food.
Wake up people; your sickness and misery is a large corporation’s payday!
Nobody from our current government is going to tell you this or help you stay healthy; their major campaign donors would disown them if they did.
Medicine is a business in America, designed to keep you paying money to doctors, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies, not to get healthy.
Eat Healthy, don’t eat the mass produced, chemical laden crap that the big corporations dump on the market and boycott Walmart and any other big supermarket chain if they don’t start selling healthy food.
