3 Customers or 150 Million?

April 3, 2018

Fact, Three People have more wealth than the poorest 150 million people in the US.

That is clearly a poverty versus wealth issue. But let’s take a moment to look at it strictly from a business point of view, just for discussion.

Businesses, which do you prefer having 150 million customers or trying to get all your business from 3 people?

Do you think those 3 spend more time shopping than the 150 million do?

Which group buys more of your product now – the 3 rich, or the 150 million?

Would you profit more if the 150 million had more money to shop with?

Maybe if we went with a build up economy instead of a trickle down, there would be more customers for virtually all the businesses in the US.

Maybe it’s time for businesses to see that the greed of the few takes away most of your customers too.

People vs. Corporations

March 2, 2018

The paradigm is shifting from
CONSERVATIVE versus LIBERAL to CORPORATIONS versus PEOPLE.

Day after day it’s becoming more and more clear. Both are fighting for control of the government. Corporations usually win.

Look at this list of problems facing the nation. These major problems all have something in common. PEOPLE vs. CORPORATIONS.

1. NET NEUTRALITY
People want it. Major media corporations don’t.

2. OPIOID CRISIS
People addicted. Drug corporations making big profits.

3. BANKING CRISIS
People lost their homes. Banks got 700 billion dollar bail out.

4. MASS SHOOTINGS.
People want reasonable gun laws. NRA / Gun Lobby opposes change.

5. F – 35 FIGHTER JET ( Cost 1 trillion dollars)
Capital enough to end poverty in the country. Weapons Manufacturers.

6. TAX REFORM.
People got little reform. Corporations got massive tax cuts.

7. MUSIC
Music costs more, sounds worse. 3 CEOS control 80%.

The list is just started. What would you add to it?

We have three political parties, the Republican Corporate Party, the Democratic Corporate Party, and all the rest of us that don’t have lobbyists.

Protesting Students – They turned on you in one day!

Protesting Students:

You need to know that even so called liberal watchdogs won’t talk about the censored art issues. So what has that got to do with protests against gun violence? Plenty.

Look at some of the 27 censored issues in the arts, culture, and media

1. No protest songs allowed on any mainstream radio in the US,
That means no heart radio will play any songs that address you concerns, yet you are supposed to support their sponsors.

2. Political book deals with massive advances – that seem to suggest buying influence.
That insures politicians get cash for being published, and protestors like you don’t get published and don’t get advances to influence you.

3. Hollywood makes millions but theater workers make lowest wages allowed. That means hollywood does not support workers, let alone students.

4. 3 CEO’s, all men, control 80% of music (Warners Universal Sony) and 1% of musicians make 70% of the money
That means the only music that gets covered, reviewed, and rewarded is corporate choices of these 3 men – no women. Your fresh protests will never get a real chance.

Sadly you found out how quickly the media switches away from your common sense view to the corporate NRA view. You got about 1 day, and then back to business as usual.

This website shows all 27 censored stories.

Wait a Minute …

Wait a minute – if it was just a mental issue, then there would be mass killings in every country where people have mental issues.

Wait a minute – if we can’t talk about it because it’s too fresh an event – then let’s talk about the last ten.

Wait a minute – if the NRA controls congress, then shouldn’t the pressure be put on the NRA to solve the problem?

Wait a minute – if the problem was in the community, then shootings wouldn’t happen anywhere else.

Wait a minute – if only women controlled the guns, then shootings would be almost zero.

Wait a minute – if reasonable change now will lead to worse consequences, what is a worse consequence than mass killings?

Wait a minute – the only thing this shooting has in common with the other shootings is … shooting.

Wait a minute – if congress is bought off, can we begin a collection and offer them more?

Wait a Minute – More Shootings
