Privatized Elections Trump Democracy

More and more, multi-millionaires and billionaires are hiding behind patriotic-sounding organizations that do their bidding – many paying no taxes – to marshal mercenary companies who in turn outsource to professional snoops and trackers secretly collecting data, and hiring production companies which produce attack ads against political opponents. With Citizens United campaign funding, political parties are becoming an afterthought. In […]

Not in my Frack Yard

Why do we feel no sympathy for Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson, not to speak of former Tea Party leader, Dick Armey.

Rick Scott’s Link to Republican Proprietors?

Can there be a more despicable person than Florida governor, Rick Scott? This is a man who – at least after the campaign for his election — has consistently shown his scorn for the majority of Floridians. How does a state composed of mostly sane people support such a misanthrope? The truth is, if favorability ratings matter, they don’t. In […]
