Corporate States of America

Is there somebody out there who can tell me when and why it has begun to be legal to deny a few the right to vote? I thought we took care of that during the historic marches of the civil rights of 1960’s?

A lot of pundits and educated people have been quoted saying that the United States is very much like ancient Rome. Just like during the fall of Rome, our civil rights are slowly being taken from us. Just like the ancient Romans. Just like as long as we have beer and reality TV we are perfectly happy to turn over our rights of the magic people, which promise us safety, toys and the right kind of entertainments. All this just for the price of freedom. After all we really don’t understand what freedom is or how to use freedom is, right? So how will we miss it? Isn’t that something the Devil says when he is trying to buy a soul?

I mean those corporations seem to know how to handle freedom better than we do, right?  I mean just look at the price gouging and toxic waste spills.  Corporations have agreed to clean these spills up. Right?  That is along as there is an EPA to pay for the clean-up and provide the personal to do the dangerous cleanings.  As for the price gouging oh well a few appeals and a few donations to the right campaign funds bring that down to something much more ‘agreeable’.

With Corporations totally in charge, these poor abused corporations wouldn’t have to worry this would they. I mean aren’t those poor corporations are so put upon,.  Just Never mind the sickness their chemical and toxic chemical drops will cause.  After all, if we spend our resources making a profit for a very few and already very wealthy citizens, will do this country so much good. Won’t It?

Let’s talk about how well corporations are taking care of right to voting rights shall we?   This last November a 93-year-old World War II veteran is denied his right to vote. The right, which he risked his life in World War II to protects, Rights he watched friends and fellow soldiers, die to protect. The reason William Parsely, the Vote Judge, gave the reason for his denial ‘was that according to current voting laws in Texas’ the fact he did not have a current drivers. Our Veteran had his expired driver’s license plus several other forms of picture ID, but this was not enough. He need’s that all important driver’s license

Voting Judge William Parsely said he had advised the 93-year old veteran to go over to the closest motor vehicle station and renew his license the comeback and cast his ballot. After all there was plenty of time before the polls close. So our veteran than has to go to the DMV. So after standing in line for anywhere up to five hours to get to a DMV desk. Our veteran must then explain to another ‘public servant’ that the medical reasons, he allowed his license expire some 20+ years ago, are no longer valid. Makes me wonder when the last time Judge Parsely’s was in a DMV?
