Panama Papers Expose Greed

Why would billionaires feel they need to steal and hide money from the 47 percent from the Have Littles when the Have Littles have nothing in comparison? Is greed a sickness? If this is a class war then why do we, the Have Littles, keep sending out sons and daughters to war to protect the 1 percents assets the world over? It should be obvious to the Have Littles that the 1 percent do not care about their countries, and do not want to pay their share in taxes, but they want us to spill our blood and forfeit our lives to protect their interests and corporations. Do you think the poor in these countries benefit in any way by all this money is being hoarded in their countries? With the exposed murky world of shell companies by the Panama Papers, we can see the evidence of just how wealthy oligarchies conceal their money. Twelve current and former world leaders maintain offshore shell companies and we, here in the U.S., will find out who is not paying their taxes to support our country and pay for the privilege of living here--using our Commons for free. These freeloaders should lose their citizenship and their right to do business if they want to stash their money in a foreign country. They should live in the country where their money is residing and let that country protect them, their families and their money and not the U.S. The workers of the world need to take back our countries and do what is best for us and our planet. The days of oligarchies and corporations raping and pillaging and then running off to another country to repeat the carnage are about to end. The sun is shining on them and it is getting very hot. The U.S. election could very well be the tipping point one way or the other if we elect Bernie Sanders, who understands what is happening and what is at stakes. He warned us years ago this crap coming out of the Panama Papers would happen if the government approved the Panama Trade Agreement. If the U.S. election goes to Hillary Clinton, who favored the Panama Trade Agreement, our situation will get worse in 2016. She is part of the establishment and as secretary of state she persuaded Haiti government to reduce the garment workers’ wage increase to 61 cents an hour down to 31 cents for her American corporate friends. She also supported the immoral Iraq and Libya invasions, and the coup in Honduras. Sanders is our best chance to crawl out of this inequality and regain out rights to our Commons and save our planet. Your vote counts--at least for a while until the oligarchies, national corporations, Wall Street, big banks and corrupt politicians figure out a way to completely rig the system against the citizens, as they’ve been trying to do for years, little-by-little chipping away at our electoral process. They have much more to lose than we do so they will go to any lengths to keep what they have, but what they don’t realize is that their greed is blinding them to the fact that there are more of us than them and if we all rise up for what’s right, they can lose what they treasure. Next week, we’ll find out who in the U.S. is in the Panama Papers, but with our current political corruptions I’m not holding my breath that anything legal action will be done to them since the big banks got away with screwing over the economy, current political corruptions at our polling places have gone unpunished while Icelanders demanded and got their leader to resign over his involvement in this scandal.

Post Workists and What it Means

To change the abundance of labor in the world is to put more money in the pockets of the laborer to buy the products their fellow workers are making. Otherwise, when there are more products than money, there is slump in the economy. Austerity policies, low wages and automation (robots) were also of concern in the 1950s when Henry Ford II, CEO of Ford, took Walter Reuther, head of the United Auto Workers Union, on a tour of a new engine plant. Ford gestured to a fleet of new machines and said, “Walter, how are you going to get these robots to pay union dues?” The union leader turned to Ford and said, “Henry, how are you going to get robots to buy your cars?” This type of change in the labor has created a new type of working class that swings from task to task in order to make ends meet while enduring the loss of labor rights and bargaining rights. They are called “precariat” workers, a group of workers who live on the verge of collapse due to the instability of the nature of their job…

GOP To Pick-off Remainder of Unions

The last bastion of organize labor is now on the west and east coasts, like New York City, Seattle, and Los Angeles. Labor has mostly given up on the south and the middle of the U.S., is that because unions aren’t up to the fight? We have lost Detroit, Michigan and Wisconsin, which was the start of public unions. These GOP government control states, like govenors Synder and Pence have kicked our union butts. In California, labor has lost all of the rural counties, Orange and San Diego counties; and now San Francisco, Sacramento and Los Angeles counties are our last strong holds. It would not take a lot to lose California. California has elected GOP governors before and with our new federal government now in place and with the Koch brothers, et al, and their money it could be done again. We, union workers, could lose it all. They have started on teachers’ union and they are still trying to break the postal workers union by forcing the pension funds to be funded 75 years ahead of pa…

Gig Economy

The Gig con, which sells people on a more flexible job without fixed hours. This sounds enticing to workers fed up with their 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. jobs. Also, to people without jobs, and to people who have part-time jobs, and need more money. Gig jobs fill in many needs, but the rub is that these jobs or most of these jobs don’t pay into Social Security or Social Disability Insurance so when someone hits retirement age there is nothing to fall back on. Most have been told that Social Security will not have money for them because Social Security will be broke. This is a lie and a con job on the workers. Social Security will be OK if the federal government will keep its hands off the money we paid into it. They think it is their piggy bank. Then what if you get sick or injured on the Gig job, there is no healthcare. We know that we are running out of jobs here and worldwide. This is why we need the universal basic income and unions for all. At this time, the federal government estimates…
