    I keep forgetting, you want their government to just let you in and give you stuff. You should join the caravan in Mexico.

    so we always hear about how corrupt the govt is. we dont hear so much about corporate sector rot, which im assuming is as bad or worse than government.

    which lead me to the conclusion that our whole society is rotten.

    NAFTA and the TPP allow corporations to directly challenge domestic laws through arbitration. This empowers private tribunals with corporate lawyers in the guise of judges. These trade tribunals are not democratically accountable to the voters of any nation.

    On Thursday, November 8, a federal court in Montana ordered a pause in the construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Sounds like cause for celebration, doesn’t it? It’s not. Nothing can stop Keystone XL, and the reason is NAFTA. Unstoppable: The Keystone XL Oil Pipeline and NAFTA

    this episode talks about bayer corporation which was started under the nazis and did experimental chemical tests on its jewish subjects. something out of a horror movie. one of the founders wanted to create pure germans by changing eye color, etc. they got short sentences for their war crimes and were back at it when they escaped. bayer is now with monsanto.

    sheldon wolin, who used to be one of americas greatest living political philosophers, says the power of corporations merged with the power of the state is unprecedented in world history.

    he agrees with chris hedges that its time to start a rebellion because they will push us to a police state where 90% of the population is poor.

    It’s not easy raising money from small-dollar donors. Only two of the 435 members of the House of Representatives elected in 2018 raised the majority of their money from small dollars: @Ocasio2018 and @repjohnlewis.
