The 4 Big Ways That Insatiable Corporate Hunger for Profits Has Devastated American Life

The 4 Big Ways That Insatiable Corporate Hunger for Profits Has Devastated American Life -- and the World Along with It

Health Care:

Almost half of the working-age adults in America passed up doctor visits or other medical services because they couldn't afford to pay. The system hasn't supported kids, either. A UNICEF study places the U.S. 26th out of 29 OECD countries in the overall well-being of its children.

Calling Themselves 'Multinationals': No Allegiance to Anyone

Big business has found its Utopia, a world in which millions of people are willing to work for a fraction of U.S. salaries.

In this dream world of global capitalism, young people are going from zero income on the farm to a few dollars a day on a 12-hour factory shift, and as a result, based on the World Bank's poverty threshold of $1.25 per day, they're no longer "in poverty." So the media piles on praise for free markets. The Economist proclaimed that "poverty is declining everywhere." The Washington Post gushed that "a billion people have been lifted from poverty through free-market competition."

Even Worse Than Not Paying: Making the World Pay for Them

A recent study estimated that toxic pollution affects the health of more than 100 million people, shortening their productive life spans by 12.7 years on average. A related study concluded that in 2010 over 8 million individuals were at risk of exposure to industrial pollutants at 373 toxic waste sites in three low-income countries (India, Indonesia, and the Philippines).

Again, you "folks" may wonder, how do some Amerikans remain so stupid in spite of the Awful Truth?

" www.democraticunderground.com " and many of the other Propagandist Sites of the Plantation Massa's of the Demokrat Party, are the "Pool" from which King Barry's Handlers draw on to hire speech writers for the Teleprompter-Reader-in-Chief.

Unable to attack the actual content of my post, Consistent launches in to a racist bigoted attack against websites that post the truth.

He hasn't got enough unsodden brain cells left to argue against the message so he starts a racist attack on the messenger.

Sheeple,

The "content" of your post is 50-100 years old.

History did not begin the day you were born.

Now git out of Mommy's Spare Bedroom and go tell her to make you some Jello!

Well, you have a point there. I'm especially concerned about all those trips on Air Force One taken by the President, his family, friends, and those he panders to for political gain. These frequent trips cost the taxpayers about $200,000 an hour, that's two million dollars every time he goes to Hawaii. And, just think of the HUGE CARBON FOOTPRINT! Then there are the back-up planes carrying the limos, etc. You eco-nuts must be furious at the President.***SNIP

It is amazing the lengths that the moochers will go to in order to bad mouth the producers who are paying the freight in this country.
