“He entered this whole process in a spirit of compromise, holding his hand out, and the other side didn’t want any hand being held out toward them. They wanted to slap that hand away. And he should have come in there just like the Republicans do: When they’re in power and they want to get something done, they come in with guns blazing and they get it done. And our side, we break out the the six-string guitar and start singing Kumbaya. And I’m sick of it — and the American people are sick of it, too. … Oh, I know. I’ve got a bill. Let’s give 70% of the women the right to vote and leave 30% out. There’s a great idea. Because we’ve got to do it in increments, Wolf. We can’t let ALL the women vote all at once. We can’t free ALL the slaves. Let’s keep 30% of them enslaved. That’s how this town is run though, isn’t it? They compromise to the lowest possible denominator.” — Michael Moore on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

The Green They Steal, The Greed They Wear

Friends,

It was amazing. Every story on the front page of Monday’s New York Times told the story of the Age of Greed during which a system known as capitalism is slowly, but surely, killing us:

Insurance company greed: “Millions Spent to Sway Democrats on Health Care”

War profiteers: “Contractors Tied to Effort to Track and Kill Militants”

There’s no profit in repairing our infrastructure: “Repair Costs Daunting as Water Lines Crumble”

China, the bank: “China Uses Rules on Global Trade to Its Advantage”

You mean NAFTA didn’t improve life in Mexico: “Two Drug Slayings in Mexico Rock US Consulate”

What happens when Big Food profits from hurting kids: “Forget Goofing Around: Recess Has New Boss”

There’s now a daily parade of news like this — well, not really “news,” more like the media division of large corporations shoving your face into the dirt that is your life. You already know the schools are a disaster and the war is a boon for the Halliburtons and a bust for you. You don’t need a newspaper to tell you the roads and electrical lines and the local sewage plant is in miserable disrepair.
