Chronicling the collapse of a failed society
…the corporate elite. If this is genuine, and there is no reason to believe it isn’t, things could be about to take a dramatic turn for the worse:
In the midst of our fabricated budget crisis, millions of ordinary Americans are finally waking up to the fact that parasitic corporations enjoy a 0% tax rate. Although this reality has hardly been the focus of our corporatist mainstream media, there have, surprisingly, been a few peeps here and there and about this shocking state of affairs. As apathetic and politically disengaged as many Americans are, most people innately sense that something is wrong when our government is telling us we need to suck it up and slash all kinds of public services, while simultaneously the richest among us are paying virtually no taxes – in some cases even less, if you can wrap your mind around that paradox. Clearly, something has gone awry in the great “free market” of American style capitalism.
