Why Saving the Middle class from Corporate Greed is So Very Necessary


Despite being the richest country in the world, our poverty rate is one of the highest among highly developed nations.
I recently had the opportunity to talk with Georgetown law professor Peter Edelman, to discuss his decades of anti-poverty work and his new book, So Rich So Poor: Why It’s So Hard to End Poverty In America. Peter Edelman was legislative aide to Senator Robert F. Kennedy and accompanied Kennedy on his 1967 visits to the deep South to understand hunger and poverty in this country and how to fix it READ MORE
 This is why we need equal pay for equal work. This is why we need Strong Unions. After all, too many businesses would pay employees the lowest salary that they could get away with. After all, with too many companies the needs of the boss is first, last and foremost, with employees just the means for which they get paid--I know, because I use to work for a Cleaning Service whose ex-husband the lawyer was the one who kept 'these' Holy Ghost Filled Christians' Honest and Law abiding--After all, these (the pair of sisters) who too Filled to Answer to Caesar.


By the way, just because I finally could afford to quit this Cleaning Service does not mean that I am finished paying the price of working there--just a time out. I will go back to paying the price if and when I retire, because for all Social Security and the IRS know for a brief period of time--I was unemployed -- without the benefits---Which means that my family will again pay the price of me getting conned by these Holy Ghost Filled Christian Republicans.

After all, the last thing that America needs is yet another generation of poverty, but unless the children of poverty get help now--Federal Assistance--that is what we will have.

 
Mitt Romney demonstrates the hubris of a certain kind of millionaire: the kind who think it is the job of hard-working people to preserve the rich man's wealth.READ MORE
Reminds me of my former bosses at that Cleaning Service-The Cleaning Service that now is smaller than it was when it first got started, but at least now the bosses get to keep more of the money they make; they may be small, but at least Thank God By The Power of the Holy Spirit and in the Name of Jesus: they found their way around paying taxes--The last thing that America needs--A President who would sacrifice the Middle and Working Classes for the 1% at the expense of Society. 

In addition,there is this reality--why corportations need so many lawyers.

A push to protect workers from the danger of dust explosions has stalled in the face of bureaucratic hurdles, industry pushback and political calculations Small fires were a part of the job at the Hoeganaes Corp. metal powder plant 30 miles northeast of Nashville. By early 2011, some workers later told investigators, they had become practiced in beating down the flames with gloved hands or a fire extinguisher.
The company’s own product fueled the fires. Scrap metal rolls into therust-colored plant on the town’s industrial periphery and is melted, atomized and dried into a fine iron powder sold to makers of car parts. Sometimes, powder leaked from equipment and coated ledges and rafters. Under the right conditions, it smoldered.
