Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Quote of the Day

Corporations are people, my friend... of course they are. Everything corporations earn ultimately goes to the people. Where do you think it goes? Whose pockets? Whose pockets? People's pockets. Human beings my friend.
--  Mitt Romney

It's pretty clear that Romney is not channeling the Supreme Court's loathsome Citizens United decision and stating that Goldman-Sachs is literally a person.  But he's still full of shit.  Whose pockets, indeed!  I hope he implodes, because Rick Perry is oh-so-much better.

For some reason, the Romney video resists embedding.  You can view it here.

Update: Aha - Dave Weigel posts it on YouTube, from a different camera angle.

As a trombonist, I have rather  different opinion.

Corporate earnings going to the people's pocket?!? Well, maybe, except for the TWO TRILLION DOLLARS that they are sitting on!

And the pockets the money goes into belong to the top few percent.

Since the pockets it all ends up in are very deep, I guess it's up to us (US) to go into these pockets and liberate it!


Thanks, Jack.

Now if we only could begin to search those pockets.

Where's Mark Harmon when you need him?

Love ya,

If corporations are people, are they male, or female? And if they're male, can I marry General Electric? Please, I want a sugar mommy!
