Taxes and Inflation – Taxes and Inflation

No tax reform items will make it through Congress if those items touch the very wealthy. Congress is set to drive the middle class further downward, shred the net for the poor (they don’t count raging inflation for food and clothing) , and make the very wealthy much wealthier until at least the 2014 election. If you make less than $500k per year you better pray that the House goes Democrat in 2014.

How Much Does It Cost to Buy a Senator or Congressman?

Lobbyists work around the clock to influence legislation in both houses of Congress.  What kind of influence do lobbyists seek?  Depends on their employers.  Here is a brief clip of the 60 Minutes interview with Jack Abramoff – a very informative interview.  – –  http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7387331n

Unregulated Markets Are Dangerous

I have heard countless times from Republicans about the great, God given right to profit from every single human endeavor. Profit is said to be “necessary” as an incentive to investment, hard work, creativity, risk taking – all said to be necessary to improvement of our culture and strength of our economy. These same capitalist-minded servants to the plutocrat winners of this profit-driven economy complain that governmental regulation for fair competition, product safety, workers’ compensation and rights, fair taxation and responsible returns to investors slow the great profit generating apparatus. But as soon as regulation is lessened we see all these problems come to pass – all these as well as rigged markets, price-fixing, ecology destruction, destructive speculation, tax dodging, national and international fiscal crimes, suppression of all competing technologies. All this for products and services that are not designed to eradicate problems, but in fact allow problems to continue indefinitely and hopefully create new problems – all for cash flow, profits, and expanding criminal control in governments around the globe.

In competition, whether high school basketball or trading derivatives, regulation is necessary and desirable.  Deregulation corrupts, absolute deregulation corrupts absolutely.  Hypothetical Situation:  Basketball referees stop calling fouls.  Worse Hypothetical Situation:  No refs are present.  Question:  Have you ever witnessed violence?

QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Can the Digital Revolution Alleviate Oppression?

Many cultural prognostications site the progress of digital  communication as a tool for progress out of the cold war, out of oppression of peoples by small groups, out of the New World Order.  Here is one viewpoint from a published ex-CIA officer.  – –   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7r-pbD1kIUE&feature=related
