Summary of this weekend’s video line-up:

  • the trivial corporate media news (Jimmy Dore)
  • Trump and “Democrats’” single-payer stance
  • racket: government confiscation from innocent citizens
  • our system sucks away real life (Moyers)
  • FCC’s Comment Fraud on Net Neutrality
  • the 2nd Guilded Age
  • Wall Street Gambling still supported by DC

 

Haven’t you long felt like the corporate media news are talking right past you? Well, you are not alone, Jimmy Dore can show you:

A whole bunch of interesting topics carefully treated (like the single-payer healthcare stance of Trump and “Democratic” politicians, government confiscation from innocent citizens (a massive racket, I can tell you!), primaring fake progressive career politicians, etc.):

Slightly rephrasing Bill Moyers: Our political and economic/financial institutions and mass media have come to be without a soul. We walk a world in which the lust for private power and wealth corrupts everything and sucks away real life.

Corporate Con-Job at the FCC: Anything to Censor the Internet

Frederick Townsend Martin (one of the robber barons of our 1st Guilded Age: “… we are the rich. We own America; we got it, God knows how; but we intend to keep it…” Ughhh! The practice and intent clearly is the same in our current 2nd Guilded Age, including the abject indifference and cruelty.

Bill Moyers alerted us back in 2014, when few of us were paying attention, to Obama and Congress heinously passing a bill permitting Wall Street to resume its predatory practices (which only a few years earlier had given us the Mortgage Crisis and Great Recession) and sticking us, the taxpayers, with the bill when their gambles will fail again — all done as investment return for half a billion dollars poured into the midterm elections by these “financial interests.” And, unsurprisingly, the bill was written by a corporate think tank and adopted practically verbatim by our congress cheats, the way business is done in our “representative” legislature these days.

I hope everybody is coming to understand that corruption in our highest political offices did not start with Trump. It has been going on for a long time (long before Obama, too) and merely keeps gobbling up our country and ruining our lives contrary to Trump’s promise to “drain the swamp,” Obama’s promise of hope, and whatever false promises their predecessors (the Bushes, Bill Clinton, Richard Nixon and all those false cheats in Congress, as well as many state governments and city councils, made).

We are not fated to live this way. It isn’t fate. It’s a rigged system which we can change in a heartbeat when we resolve to do so and join forces to do it.
