Supreme Court lifts overall limits on congressional campaign donations allowing big money to own our Democracy

John Kenneth Galbraith was dead on when he said corporations were too powerful and had to be reigned in. Instead they are still getting bigger and more powerful. We are now a Corporatocracy controlled by the corporations. Our Supreme court gave them the right to spend as much money as they want to get what they want.

We are seeing right now the dangers to the planet and society of giving too much control to oil and energy companies. Remember when Bush and Cheney met secretly in the White House with the so called energy Czars? They decided what was right for them and their and Cheney and Bush's wallets while disregarding us and the planet. Cheney said they did not have to use the 1/2 million dollar acoustic valve that would have prevented this disaster.

The rest of the world by law has to use them but here they do not because this country belongs to the corporations not we the people. The companies that were working on the platform being questioned by Congress merely lied and put the blame on everyone else. Another worthless inquisition as those being questioned are in charge not that charade of a Congress. We have got to take our country back somehow!

In the 1950s, John Kenneth Galbraith cautioned that corporations were becoming too powerful. In the 1960s he warned President Kennedy about the dangers of unilateral military action abroad. Son of a gun!

He continually criticized conservative administrations' fiscal policies. He tried to bring environmental issues into the limelight. Son of a gun!

"He was a half of a century ahead of his time," said his biographer, Richard Parker.

His influence remained relevant long after his 1958 work "The Affluent Society" argued that the American economy produced individual wealth but did not adequately address public needs such as schools. Son of a gun!

The Canadian-born economist and unabashed liberal served as adviser to Democratic Presidents from Franklin D. Roosevelt to Bill Clinton and was John F. Kennedy's ambassador to India.

Galbraith, who was outspoken in his support of government intervention in social and economic problems, became a larger figure on the American political scene after World War II. How the hell can you justify ignoring a source of wealth like this?

Although an economist, his impact reached far beyond economic circles. He thought across disciplines, Benjamin Freeman, a Harvard economics professor and friend of Galbraith's said, "Not just in the field (of economics), but broadening the discourse to encompass the world at large."

With having advised the likes of Presidents Roosevelt, Kennedy, and Clinton I think he had a proven record of success.

His 1958 work "The Affluent Society" argued that the American economy produced individual wealth but did not adequately address public needs such as schools. Son of a gun! He hit the nail on the head, John Kenneth was 50 Years ahead of his time! We keep seeing the results of not listening to John Kenneth Galbraith.

All this does Jim is strengthen the two party system the way I see it, of course the republicans advantage the most as far as money, but it also locks in buying the democrats to keep more endless gridlock and left/ right battles, so that most campaign money goes to ONLY 2 parties and weakens alternative parties/ voices ... just m,ore corporate/ banking communism ... just my opinion guy ....

Have a good un ....

How To Fix Your Broken Relationship , Becky Miller said...


I'm Mimi Bieber never thought i will ever again believed in Love Spells or voodoo because i have been cheated by many spell casters out there who claimed they are powerful but they are just scam who knows nothing but to cast fake spells. But not until when I read a post of a man on the internet some years ago, this post talk about a powerful spell caster, who can help with any kind of relationship problem. I contacted this man, and he proved how powerful he was to me through the result of the spell he cast for me. My Husband broke up with me for no reason for almost 3 years and i tried all I could to have him back because I really love him so much but all my effort did not work out. We met at our early age at the college and we both have feelings for each other and we got married happily for 2 years with no kid and he woke up one morning and he told me she's going on a divorce.I thought it was a joke and when he came back from work he tender to me a divorce letter and he packed all my loads from his house. I ran mad and I tried all I could to have him back but all did not work out. I was lonely for months.So when I told the spell caster what happened he said he will help me and he asked for her full name and her picture. I gave him that. At first I was skeptical but I gave it a try because have tried so many spell casters and there is no solution...so when he finished with the readings, he got back to me that she's with a man and that man is the reason why she left me...The spell caster said he will help me with a spell that will surely bring her back. But I never believe all this. He told me i will see a positive result within 6 days..6 days later, he called me himself and came to me apologizing and he told me he will come back to me. I can’t believe this, it was like a dream because i never believe this will work out after trying many spell casters and there is no solution.The spell caster is so powerful and after that he helped me with a pregnancy spell and i got pregnant a month later.We are now happy been together again and with lovely kid. This spell caster has really changed my life and i will forever thankful to him. He has helped many of my friends too with similar problem too and they are happy and thankful to him..This man is indeed the most powerful spell caster have ever experienced in life. Am Posting this to the Forum in case there is anyone who has similar problem and still looking for a way out.
