Too Much Money In It


‘I get it,’ Obama tells business, vows cooperation | Raw Story

Actually, he doesn't get it... at all. Not even close.

Appealing to business leaders' 'better nature' is like taking a wee whilst standing on one's head. Laws of nature support neither venture.

Daily Kos: Obama's Misunderstanding of Corporate America:
"It would be nice to think that business leaders have all just had a moral lapse for the last 30 odd years. But that's not the truth. The truth is that any CEO who behaved morally in the ways Obama is asking would be in violation of the corporate charter, which demands maximum profit to the shareholder. Corporations, by definition, exist to maximize shareholder return. End of story."
So, yeah. Change and all.


Clueless Clinton, too.

Why can’t the US legalize drugs? There’s ‘too much money in it,’ Clinton says | Raw Story

Your modern Democratic Party, ladies and gentlemen. When in doubt, mumble then cower.


Huzzah! Take the 3rd-Railers (Wayers) with you.

Actually, it is way too cheap to live where-ever you are living. Seriously.

Sorry. I live near a very large fresh body of water, the 3rd largest city in the country and I will be able to pay off my house in less than 7 years. I love the scenery/geography of the Bay Area, but really? I'd rather not spend 25% of my income on rent.
