American Crapitalism

American Crapitalism in a nutshell..

"Under the norms of mainstream political journalism, costs imposed on the American people by the private sector require no justification or defense; only costs imposed by the public sector do."
It not just "the norms of mainstream journalism", this is American Crapitalism in a nutshell. The Reagan revolution led to current crop of Rs and Corporate Ds who believe that business can do no wrong and government can do no right, therefore government by the people should bend to the will of business interests.

American Crapitalism - Hedge Funds

The Working Person's Guide to the Industry That Might Kill Your Company
"..The result is a race to the bottom. In the long run, the entire PE model is the highest expression of the philosophy that working people are merely widgets whose cost must be minimized in order to serve the needs of capital."

American Crapitalism - Step in the right direction

Not a lot but is needed. Senators propose near-total ban on worker noncompete agreements

Politics - Head in the Sand or Lying Bastards

The person who wrote this (referring to CNN vs Trump),
“Never in the history of this country has a President been the subject of such a sustained barrage of unfair, unfounded, unethical and unlawful attacks by so-called ‘mainstream’ news, as the current situation,”
.. was either on another planet during the Obama administration or works for Fox News

Politics - Corporate Ds vs Progressives.

Hard to argue with this. (from CNN)

Judging from the various posts I've seen on this, I think the D's who love HRC, the most tin-eared politician of my lifetime, may be a stronger, dear-leader cult than the Fox News-Teabagger-Trumpers.

More good stuff on this from Caitlin Johnstone: This MSNBC Clip Is Everything Ugly About Russia Smears
I agree, there's no doubt HRC was referring to Gabbard but I don't think there was any real reason for her comment other than it's just something HRC believes because the people in her circle believe it.  
Just like the Trumpers believe Obama was from Kenya, the Obama Phone existed, Trump was sent by god, and the HRC email fuck-up was part of some larger, more evil plan, HRC sees Russians everywhere because people in her circle see Russians everywhere. 
She can't conceive of a world view different from her own so speaks as if everyone is in her world. Tin-eared.

Trump - About that Swamp?

We Found a “Staggering” 281 Lobbyists Who’ve Worked in the Trump Administration - This article feels a lot like the BS stock trading article of a few days ago but still,... its obvious the Trump Swamp is swampier and more criminal than we seen for decades.

Trump - So Much Winning

The US airstrike on its former headquarters is a terrible symbol of American failure in Syria
Even when he tries to do the right thing like getting the US out of foreign wars, he screws it up. 
He just doesn't realize that there are problems/issues that can't be solved with small, lip-service like action and then a bunch of BS, carnival-barker propaganda from his mouth. 
He just doesn't have the ability to do the job. He would have been a buy-here-pay-here car salesman if he hadn't been born rich.
