legal liability the humans behind them, but they are always a fictitious entity. The said
CORPORATIONS do not breathe nor suffer from old age, but have continuity beyond human
lifespans. CORPORATIONS don't have any problems with chemical, biological or nuclear
contamination because they are a fictitious and need only concern themselves with the
bottom line/profit. It is legal for CORPORATIONS to own all the politicians it can afford and
they can afford most of them. No Greens or Barney Franks, it would seem. I acknowledge that
there is a human component behind CORPORATIONS, but the human component dies and the
CORPORATION continues doing whatever it started doing, good or evil. I will add that there is
not much profit in good, don't ya' know?
A short homily to give meaning to Corporate. You own a Nuke plant near its' end of useful life.
Now this plant and all its' radioactive waste will become a financial liability soon. No problem,
CORPORATE will accept a rubber check to sell the plant to my goombah Justin O. Peewillie. Now
Justin can't afford a roll of toilet paper, but no problem because the sale is done and he has title to
the plant and all its' waste. CORPORATE never cashes the check because it might bounce, ergo,
don't aggravate the chance to bail out on waste liability. Justin promptly files bankruptcy through
his Justin O. Peewillie Corporation. Now the Fed or State must pay Justin to keep the waste from
migrating into now green pastures under bankruptcy protection. Somebody gonna sue somebody
for sure, but it's all CORPORATE so there really aren't any warm bodies to get a hand on except
Justin who still has to get paid to manage the cleanup or no cleanup as the case may be. The best
part is that the original CORPORATE profiteers are positioned legally blameless and besides they
are a fictitious entity and who you gonna sue? Now that's what CORPORATE is all about.

Ukraine has been the single largest international news story in this country while America's MSM covers anything but...because Obama is avoiding it like the plague
"Small people talk about people, average people talk about events, great people talk about ideas" Eleanor Roosevelt
Even while other countries' media has been covering the story more frequently, including the big hitters in US print media, the majority of even those reports etc. focus on the big bad actions of Russia and don't give an equally critical assessment of the actions of other participants and influential powers. Russia of course deserves more than a preponderance of the blame, but our media needs to be equally critical of all actors objectively, investigate the actions and accusations of those actors, etc. In other words, the western media isn't misleading in that it doesn't report the truth with respect to Putin and Russia, but is misleading in what it tends to leave out in an effort to frame the picture, to the under-informed information consumer, in a decidedly pro-western way. The danger being, of course, that our society adopts a distorted view of reality, a reality that is only mostly or partly true, but missing critical pieces of the greater truth.
For example, I haven't seen much in MSM (including BBC/Sky/etc) about the profile and history of the current leaders of Ukraine (but plenty exists on Putin the adversary), it's difficult to find Lavrov's Munich speech from a couple days ago (mostly BS, but still important for people to see and hear for contextual purposes), I haven't seen much coverage/investigation regarding Ukrainian shells hitting in the middle of rebel held population centers (while plenty of news coverage exists about the Mariupol attack a week or so back. I'm not suggesting these omissions are intentional, but the effect tends to paint a dishonest picture overtime and gradually galvanizes a society's perception of reality. Having said all of that, and in conjunction with my previous statement, it is still quite easy to despise Putin and Russia's actions while at the same time knowing that our partners in Ukraine aren't squeaky clean and innocent, etc.
We probably don't disagree on much here. I am just long-winded.
