    Sadly, about right, but throw in the companies in the MIC at the top, foreign and our domestic ones.

    Even more true these days than it was in those. Tip of the hat to Paddy Chayefsky (writing) and Ned Beatty (delivery). (As it happens, there’s an ad that shows that this page is being presented by 3M.)

    I thought corporations were people, & that’s why money is speech?

    Do you remember the plot of the original “Rollerball” movie? People were citizens of corporations. OMG

    You forgot Raytheon, Boeing, Haliburton, and other war mongering MIC companies.

    Donnie forgot to add an important part: “And I own major shares in all those countries”.

    With capitalism dependent on wages and consumption as key components, we’re going to have to do some serious thinking about who can afford the products and services of these mighty corporations …

    The democrats fear big business. The republicans fear big government. How did this dynamic happen? Government has the law and military to subjugate – not corporations!

    Oh libby, libby, I’m so proud of your Googling skills. I would guess you and your Fearless leader know more than the CIA and FBI, both of whom believe the Russians meddled with the emails. The FBI did not come to conclusions about Russian motives—but agree with the CIA about the source of the hacking. The CIA concluded that since both the DNC and the RNC got hacked, but only the DNC emails were released—that the DNC was the target. The FBI agrees the Russians meddled—but think it was only so sow confusion. As to the story about “…Craig Murray, former British ambassador to Uzbekistan and a close associate of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange…” , all I can say is that I believe the CIA and FBI rather than Julian Assange’s “close associate” who would have lots of reasons to dissemble. Does the FBI lie? Sometimes, sure, but generally through more subtle means like employing prosecutorial discretion. How about the CIA? Well, yes, they lie as a matter of their professional pursuit. But in this case, to have both agencies come up with the same conclusion? Nope, I’m not that gullible—though you seem to be. I’d love to see a full investigation—unlike your Fearless Leader. How do you explain his refusal to take Russian hacking seriously? Is he simply a traitor? Is he too ignorant to think it’s possible? Or does he know more about it than he is letting on? I’m guesing it’s his mental illness. His sociopathic narcissism coupled with ADHD makes it hard for him to admit that a solid majority of the electorate voted against him. A sociopathic narcissist with ADHD who lost the popular vote is compelled by his illness to deny any hint of Russian hacking. Victory belongs to Trump alone!!!. He obviously didn’t need Russian help to win his minority of Amrican voters, and to suggest otherwise is to cast doubt on his legitimacy. But lib, here’s the thing. Trump’s mental illness is a fact. So strap yourself in, this will be one hell of a crazy ride.

    Let’s see now, he’s on GoComics himself and doesn’t know if they let you change your screen name. Well, I guess that says it all as far as his intelligence is concerned doesn’t it.

    The NPP

    Irrelevant, as usual. Corporations give to both parties, but only support their worshipers.
