Our country is broken….badly broken…and a big source of the break is the absolute grip the corporations and the elites have over every single element of our government. From city counsel and especially right up to “our” president, they are owned by the corporations.
But some are pushing back….even the corporations recognize that a parasite should not kill its host.
Heads of over 100 major companies have joined Starbucks Corp. CEO Howard Schultz in a pledge to boycott political donations until Congress and the president agree on a long-term debt and deficit plan, Schultz announced in a letter Wednesday.
“Remarkably, the initiative triggered a national dialogue and a groundswell of support,” Schultz wrote, adding that in the 10 days since releasing his pledge, he “heard directly from thousands of concerned citizens and was astounded by the volume of support we received through calls, emails, social media exchanges and various other public votes of confidence.”
