Corporate greed abounds

Corporate greed in the form of outsourcing jobs to third world countries in sweat shops that pay pennies on the dollar to what Americans can make on welfare, to outsourcing technological jobs to India, Pakistan, China, etc., for the sake of corporate profit undermine all of us in the USA! Corporations that have Americans working part time (lucky as they are) servicing the sales of the products of those third world countries, undermine the fabric of the United States of America. Americans, who buy these products, made with labor that undermines the fabric of America, are not short of being stupid at their own doing!

If we Americans cannot support the existence that is the style of life sold to us through the overpowering persuasion of the media that we take in, then, it’s either crime or dysfunction that creeps into the balance! 

How is it that someone like Warren Buffet can offer a billion dollars for the people who successfully predict the outcome of the NCAA basketball playoffs!

Could he not give such monies to a better cause? Such a despicable overture is an insult to America, but buys into the apathy and destructive reward behavior that is being encouraged in our society. Wrong and insidious, that’s what we get from those with unimaginable wealth in America! Lead by example seems corrupt. Corporate America cares not for Americans, but only for the dollars that they only need to feed their ego, with no consciousness for the average man.

Raise the minimum wage and encourage and support education, please!
