    The Chamber is against Unions and others who are poor.

    It is scary in how Google took over the privacy of each of us. And to see how , they are getting big and taking control in what to whom they are financing to be the next ruler as their convenience?

    I have been working on line for over ten years.
    At this point I am losing faith in the possibility to get enough people aware to make any significant difference in the corruption that is so deeply and profoundly imbedded in the political process.
    Mega industries and Wall Street and the Banking and lobbying interests are so strong we have little to combat it.Sadly, I find among my own circle{s}of friends/family/and community, the idea that We the People is no longer very “WE”.
    At 93, one does tend to look at reality as a way of life. All the rest is wishful thinking…no longer viable.

      I’ll just share my favorite Howard Zinn quote:

      “TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending this spinning top of a world in a different direction. And if we do act, in however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory.”

      ― Howard Zinn

    Transparency is required for a true democracy.

    It’s true that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce supports legislation that favors large corporations over true small business and people’s rights. Google needs to pull out of that group and prove they support legislation that favors We the People who bring traffic to their sites. Thanks to Public Citizen for helping to pressure corporations to be better corporate citizens as well of the societies they incorporate in!

    I think this strikes a nerve in many citizens (how much corporations are giving to specific political agendas). I have joined wolf-pac.com via TYT to help with the battle to end the blatant money bought votes and the way corporations water down very important laws. Check out this movement and join the cause to get big money out of our legislature!
