13. Maybe they meant you can't put them in jail.

Or they may be referring to the Attorney General's opinion that some corporations are too large to prosecute.

27. I believe the implication is they do have to pay enough in graft

to ensure that condition. Never bite the hand that you're feeding money to.

2. Surely those who still don't see that our government (formerly of, by, and for the people) is now a

a corporatist government catering almost exclusively to large corporations to the detriment of all else, surely that number is dwindling in great numbers by the day. The proof of this assertion is in the combined body of works of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government, a matter mostly of public record except for what is increasingly being done in secrecy.

4. A dozen donuts are sitting on a table in front of a CEO, a nonunion worker, and a union member.


The CEO takes 11 donuts and puts them in his briefcase.

Then he whispers to the nonunion worker, “That union guy is trying to steal your donut.”

7. Excellent.

And that donut steal'n CEO, does that bullshit to our company. He tells all the lemmings that the union will steal that last donut, so don't bring in a union because he's so generous letting the workforce have that donut. Oh...and if the union comes in, they will all end up like Jimmy Hoffa (?!?)

It's SO depressing.

14. Seems like lawmakers are the problem, this only happens because lawmakers who were voted in

 

to serve their constituents get bought out by lobbyist.

Pretty much everything you listed is allowed. Too bad our politicians won't reign in the nonsense.

16. Tell me again how investors in those corporations aren't.

For every person legitimately trying to GOTV for liberal candidates and liberal ideals, trying to address climate change, trying to make the world a better place. There are hundreds of corporate supporters pumping cash into them every paycheck to assure they not only stay in charge, but that it gets a lot worse and at this point, probably never better.

They are not the problem except for the 1% that wants to have slave labor.
