Yeah Nevada, Way To Go

Yeah Nevada, Way To Go
David Schlecht

Congratulations Nevada, you just might have a chance of pulling yourselves out of the quagmire you find yourselves in. You voted against the Austerity presidential candidate.

Rather than dragging America down to your level, you’ve elected to put the country on a different path than yours.

Now, if you can just make those same decisions on your local elections and get the failed policies out of office.

This is not a political issue, this is an economic issue. You didn’t get were you are by following the mistaken policies of just one party.

But, it looks like Nevada is waking up.

We need to stop letting the elites, the leeches, ride free on our backs. It’s time the rich started paying their fair share. Did you know Microsoft is incorporated in Nevada rather than Washington so they don’t have to pay taxes? So who pays for the infrastructure that they use? You and I do, and the people of Washington. Does Microsoft? No.

This, Nevada, is the reason our state is in such sad shape. The rich get a free ride and the expenses fall on the backs of the true small businesses and on the rest of us tax payers.

We give tax breaks to the mines and other multinational corporations and expect the Nevada taxpayer to pick up the tab.

No more!

It’s time we started expecting the billionaires to pay for the 90% of our state’s expenses that they incur. It’s time their taxes paid for the roads their employees travel, and the roads their trucks use to deliver goods and provide them a profit. It’s time they paid for the court systems and all the other infrastructure they are using and expecting us to cover.

Yeah Nevada, it looks like you’re starting to wake up.

Hostess, Twinkies, and Romney’s Bain Practices

Hostess, Twinkies, and Romney’s Bain Practices
Matthew K.

No matter what the corporate media tells you about why Hostess is going broke, it’s not what you think.

Just like Romney’s Bain Capital, Hostess has been bought out by a Pirate Equity pump and dump company that makes money squeezing the life out of companies. Just like Bain, the Pirate Equity company makes money no matter what happens.

Hostess was closing down and they kept coming to the workers for one bail out after another, just so the millionaire pirates could get more money. The workers saw the writing on the wall and knew that there is no end to the sacrifices they would have to provide for the greedy who are never satisfied. Sound like Romney, anyone?

America, wake up! This is what happens when these parasitic companies pump and dump an otherwise profitable company.

The workers did the right thing and said enough is enough. If a company can’t pay a living wage (because they’ve been devoured by a Private Equity [Pirate Equity] company) then they shouldn’t be in business.

And, yes, hello Papa John’s, I’m talking to you too.
