    It's nice you acknowledge that the USA/CIA work for USA CORPORATIONS overseas, instead of for the benefit of the lowly taxpayers and voters of this great Nation. CORPORATIONS do what is good for money, and that usually excludes people's needs and moral guidelines for mutual benefit. The general population of the USA would like the gov't to treat other Nations just like we treat our children. Honor, dignity, prosperity, and such and not CORPORATE greed, corruption, collusion, and if it were for the general welfare, the gov't would have bragging rights, but secrecy is the modus operandi, so there are no bragging rights.. Truly, just a lot of shame.

    Getting involved in yet another conflict that does not concern us. Yet again, we are screwing everything up in the name of corporate profit and beneficial gain on behalf of the government officials that thought this would be a good idea...

    Smh.

    You really don't live in the same reality as all of us do you? You rail against corperate greed... who provides your internet? Your PC? You TV? Car, food, clothing?

    Greedy corporations whom you gladly hand your money over too.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yes, it's the difference between going hungry and a steady income.

    There is no other option of wages being raised and jobs still around?

    my simple question is this..... why are people upset, if the u.s. gets involved in the affairs of other nations, ..say this one of Haiti, however do not get upset, when the u.s. gets involved on other matters of nations...... which are not a power of the federal government...IE ...senator McCain in the Ukraine

    What do you mean? I am upset with people such as McCain wanting to get involved in other matters such as McCain wanting the US to get involved in Ukraine and Syria.

    i quoted you by error, it was a general question to some, who complain about one thing, but not another.

    American Apparel proves that a well-run company can produce clothing competitively- priced and pay honest wages.

    American Apparel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Any company that employs third-world sweat-shop labour and pays less than a dollar an hour is stealing from the poorest people in the world. There's no way anyone with a working conscience can justify it.
