This is what corporate “America” has done with its right of citizenship. This is what they have cooked for themselves by exercising their rights as “citizens” to lobby congress into allowing them to regulate themselves.

If corporate citizenship were not a factor right now, it would be very easy for government to fix the problem. Congress would simply implement a set of rules and business would have to abide. But since they are recognized as “people”, they lobby congress and stall the very efforts needed to keep them alive and healthy.

Corporate citizenship is at the heart of our financial problems. Strike it down. Remove the corporate constituency and the corporate lobby. Give the government back to the people. Are there no attorneys with knowledge and the gonads to effectively challenge that ruling? Or maybe there’s just not enough money to be made doing what’s right?

Huge export volumes will spur GDP for the coming quarters, but companies are using the recession to produce more with far less people. I work for http://storyburn.com where the angry chaos of our times comes to roost and I see an outlook for job growth that is nothing short of abysmal. I miss the times of Clinton, when everybody had jobs and we were actually, wait a minute, reducing the deficit. Novel idea, huh?

The US economy is in tailspin. I work for http://storyburn.com and the angry chaos around America is getting worse each day. Companies are using this recession to do far more with less people. That’s way less space needed in commercial buildings
