Warfare waged by the upper class
Washington Post, by Katrina vanden Heuvel

Original Article

“The Republican vision is clear — ‘I got mine. The rest of you are on your own.’ Republicans say they don’t believe in government. Sure, they do. They believe in government to help themselves and their powerful friends. After all, Mitt Romney is the guy who said corporations are people. No, Governor Romney, corporations are not people. “People have hearts. They have kids. They get jobs. They get sick. They cry, they dance. They live, they love, and they die, and that matters. That matters because we do not run this country for corporations. We run it for people, and that is why I support

Gee whiz, Katrina, we are doing so well - jobs, the economy, falling national debt, honesty in Libya, rising stature in the world for the US - who in the world could argue with your clearly informed perspective?

But, Katrina, corporations ARE people; living, breathing employees and their families. THAT is what Romney meant, and you know it. And if you hurt corporations with government heavy-handedness, the pain ripples through those living, breathing people and their happy, dancing, loving, dying families you and your ilk claim to care so much about.

Corporations may provide products for consumers, incomes for working people and profits for stockholders. That fat, lazy welfare queen in her jammy pants and flip flops in the checkout line ahead of me with her EBT card doesn't produce anything of value.

This writer manifests a level of naivete to be expected in a ten year old but that is unexpected and shocking in an adult. She is old enough to know better but she does not, probably because she refuses to do so. In other words, she is a Leftist. She prefers her childish good guys versus bad guys caricature of reality to the real thing. She would rather dwell in the fantasy ideology of Leftism than grapple with the sordid complexities of the real world. Not least among the sordid complexities of the real world are the multiple, intricate, seemingly endless connections between the Obama administration, big business, high finance, banks, insurance companies, energy interests, and other for-profit enterprises that Ms. vanden Heuvel professes to disdain. Can she really be as ignorant of this as her column suggests? Does she simply not know about the tentacles of the filthy capitalists embracing and emanating from the Obama regime? Who does she think is paying for it all? Ordinary Americans who think Obama is their messiah against greedy business and banks have some excuse for being suckers. What is this woman's excuse? A dedicated Marxist would view the Obama gang as Lenin's bourgeois useful idiots and the greedy mega-capitalists who support them in order to accrue more capital as a movement in the dialectic destined to bring about their own downfall as history progresses. There are still people who believe that sort of thing. Is she one of them? What on earth is wrong with this woman?

I may never be rich, but hope my children will be, and I NEVER want to hear Americans speak against them for earning the rewards of their hard work.

More than employees--and I'm not in any way minimizing the contributions of employees--a corporation, especially a publicly traded corporation, is owned by stockholders. The management has a duty to protect the interests of stockholders and generate profits from which they can pay dividends.

Many of those stockholders own little pieces of various corporations in their 401Ks, and a lot of them are already retired and depend on those dividends to help pay their living expenses and medical bills in their "golden years." I know I do, and I am no where near the top ten percent.

of course Katrina works for a Corp that cares little about profit and will hopefully fold in a few years.
There is so much wrong in this drivel that I don't know where to begin.

I forgot to address the drearily familiar 'corporations are persons' canard. Anyone with the slightest curiosity and thirty seconds to spare can quickly acquire an overview of this matter, which is regularly invoked and misrepresented by ignoramuses to slander Republicans and conservatives. Does Ms. vanden Heuvel really and truly not know the origin and basis for the legal concept and settled case law of corporate personhood? She writes like she doesn't have a clue. Or perhaps she does know better but chooses to misrepresent this issue for partisan gain. Both possibilities are inexcusable in someone like her. If she doesn't know better, she should. If she does know better, she is being dishonest.

A corporation is a PERSON? Huh? Hey bub, a corporation ain't no GD person, it's a business or what have you! HAR HAR HAR HAR! Ain't that funny! Some doofus done gone and said that a corporation is a PERSON! Don't that beat all!

Ordinary, everyday Democratic dopes can plead ignorance for talking this way. They are, after all, dopes. But Ms. vanden Heuvel, whatever else may be said about her, is no dope. Why, then, does she write like one? What in the world is wrong with this woman?

From Wikipedia:
Vanden Heuvel was born in New York City, New York, the daughter of Jean Stein, an heiress, best-selling author, and editor of the literary journal Grand Street, and William vanden Heuvel, an attorney, former US ambassador, member of John F. Kennedy's administration, businessman, and author. She has one sister and two step-siblings. Her maternal grandparents were Music Corporation of America founder Jules C. Stein and Doris Babbette Jones (originally Jonas). Through her maternal grandmother, vanden Heuvel is a distant cousin of actor and comedian George Jessel.

Vanden Heuvel graduated from the Trinity School in 1977. Vanden Heuvel studied politics and history at Princeton University, writing her senior thesis on McCarthyism and serving as editor-in-chief of the Nassau Weekly. She graduated summa cum laude from Princeton in 1981.

Our poor little princess.

To address a single point only: corporate personhood.

This is hardly a new, novel, unknown, or bizarre concept. But it is eminently necessary.

Here's a simple demonstration of why -- you are injured by a product of Megacorp, Inc. So, do you want to file suit against Megacorp? Or each of it's 27 million shareholders?

And a general comment -- #32: Agreed, and thank you. There are posts that simply add nothing, and that despoil the civility here, the civility that very much sets this site apart and above.

Katrina is channeling demonrats here. It's the demonrats who are raiding the tax payers to help themselves and their powerful friends. Think non-stimulous. Think failed green energy. Think Chrysler & GM. Think Obamacare. Think no Senate passed budgets (that way all the continuing resolutions automatically increase the budget by 6-8%).

To find a snobbier elitist than Katrina vanden Heuvel you have to locate either Anna Wintour, (Vogue Editor) Nancy Pelosi, or Hillary Clinton. And there she is lecturing us about those evil, "I got mine" corporate types.

I don't want to pay for Sandra Fluck's Boyfriend's varietous prophylactic inventory, or her pills. But according to Katrina, (the snob, not the hurricane) that makes me just as bad as the corporatists and filthy-rich Romney's of the world.

Social Security stops trying
to collect on old debts by
seizing tax refunds
Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/14/2014 10:13:04 PM     Post Reply
The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project. That would be all well and good except for the fact that the

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Nevada ranch standoff could leave

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can
