My response to posting on Dailykos, ” The Treason of the Senate: Bill Moyers explains who really owns America”
Bill Maher talked about it on his show Friday. Some of the founding fathers felt the senate was not necessary and only the house was needed because it was more representative.
It is so funny that you posted this blog today because I was just pondering doing a blog about what we are seeing in our time. I think we are really witnessing the collapse of a great empire. This diary has articulated what I have been debating with friends and co-workers about for years. This diary touched me to the core because it is so difficult trying to explain to people that slavery is not dead just transformed. I have already blogged about the work week, and how the American lifestyle is not conducive to a healthy family, because parents are taken away from the home chasing the American dream.
Whether working for a prestigious hospital chain or a major corporation, I could not shake the feeling of being on a plantation. I could not stop thinking about the time I was spending away from home and how it was hurting me and my family. I knew I was missing out on crucial time with my daughter, and had less time for self reflection and development.
I just worked for a major fortune five hundred company. A company that made billions of dollars per year but we did not have a place to hang our coats. When I complained they wheeled out a steel closet that could hold about five coats for an office of about one hundred people. I was the only one who thought something was wrong with that.
The problem is that many of the union leadership have also sold out to the corporations and have grown accustomed to the glamour and glitzy side of politics and have forgotten the people they were elected to represent.
I have been contemplating whether is should put up some of my writings while I was working for this major corporation. Some of the grievances I have had to file while in their enslavement. This diary has assisted in making that decision.
Thanks for the diary
