How can we kill corporations. ESPECIALLY corporate media
Edited on Sat Mar-07-09 04:21 AM by PretzelWarrior
I am so sick to death of these multinational corporations serving as defacto authorities who can bend the will of the people and will of countries to their whim.

WHY are we hearing stupid FUCKING "NEWS" agencies concerned about name pronunciation faux pas from Clinton? I don't recall hearing anything of the sort about Powell. Yes, I know that is because Bush was sucking all the oxygen from the attention since he was a constant walking gaffe machine, but it feels kind of catty the way they're going after her.

I think the CORPORATE MEDIA needs their prospectuses shoved up their fucking asses and we start all over again with Tom Paine and Ben Franklin style news media.

While I'm on the subject of corporations, they are a bastardization of what the concept of business and commerce was really all about. Large, multinational or national corporations who get so huge and centralized that they can take down economies are kind of like the local one company towns who can threaten the town with pulling out if their demands aren't met. We need ourselves a Teddy Roosevelt. Not just a Franklin Roosevelt.

I've been a business owner. I'm not a socialistic freak who wants to nationalize everything and have us get our allotment from the central planning commission of the Inner Political Party. But I also think there's a point at which those very large corporations like GE should have to be split up or something.

Oh....and FUCK YOU JACK WELCH, you PIECE OF SHIT.

2. You know that idea too big to fail
Well, actually once you reach a certain size your going to fail because you are so big.

3. Your wish may come true.
Newspapers are falling left and right and CBS might be having problem funding its debt.

Yep, the collapsing stock market just may make your day.
