2. Indeed, not just about money, it's about money buying people.

Think of each of these corporations as an army. Paying for soldiers, spys to do their work. Infiltrate, sabotage and occupy the base stations of the country. Destroy supplies, take the loot, blackmail, collude, whatever is necessary. Free Enterprise, Capitalism on the march.

5. I don't understand your point. Please explain your question.

Were you an influence peddler? Did you subvert the Democratic process by working there and corrupting the government with monetary influence?

Waiting.

But thanks!

12. Regulatory capture on steroids

Someone has to shut the revolving door. It'll have to be the 99%.

This is proof positive that Big Business, not just Wall Street, rules the government with an iron fist and the people be damned.

But policing our own house is a good way to start.

18. OK, I'm listening. tell me your plan for finding qualified individuals to fill high level government

positions tasked with regulating billion dollar industries. Ignoring the inflammatory "whore" statement, how could anyone be qualified to regulate these industries with no experience?

I don't think it's possible. I think the question to ask is "how do we get those experienced people into those positions without incentive to benefit themselves or cronies at the expense of the people?"

I've heard they are inside every part of our federal government, not only the Dept of Education.
