'If I'm still the majority leader in the Senate, think of me as the Grim Reaper. None of that stuff is going to pass,' he told constituents in Kentucky on Monday. ' I guarantee you that if I'm the last man standing and I'm still the majority leader, it ain't happening. I can promise you.'If he can successfully frame Democrats as sinister peddlers of ominous-sounding socialism, he argued, and Republicans as heroic defenders of American capitalism, his majority leadership—and perhaps his ally in the White House—will both remain secure.' Blanket obstructionism is not a new posture for McConnell, who concerns himself less with enacting affirmative policies than he does with accumulating raw power on behalf of the conservative movement and the Republican Party.'

And the first thing he will target is the 'entitlements' the the wage -slaves (i.e we the people) have...like Social Security which would have been solvent if the money WE GAVE had been invested instead of stolen to pay for the military.

There is nothing good or 'common' in the fact that there is an Astronomical gap between the pay of workers and bosses exposed in report on earnings of America's top 350 CEOs and thatUS bosses now earn 312 times the average worker's wage...even as health care and edcuation is privatized.

IN the vast sea of ignorance in which our current citizens drown, it is so easy for the corporate propagandists who own the media (and the wealth of this nation) to frighten folks who do not know the difference between economic systems and political systems.

The US market-driven system is defined as 'capitalism' but it is in effect, 'crony-capitalism, driven by the corporate elite and hedge funds, and it completely abrogates the Constitution's command that government provide for the common good."

If this is democratic governance how come real wages for workers have fallenover the last year, and over the last 40 years, real wages for workers are flat; there are a lot of contributing factors to this problem but they all boil down to this: workers need more power, not less.

Something is seriously wrong The utter contempt and hypocrisy of the GOP giving the wealthiest 1/10th 1%-- people who have more wealth than many countries-- a tax cut, so they can send their money off shore instead of fixing our roads and bridges, our schools, and providing decent health care for the people.

The Secret Nine-Month Investigation (HBO) - YouTube

Last year, the release of the Panama Papers caused a huge sensation across the globe, BUT NOT HERE-- exposing a hidden world of wealth held offshore. The International Consortium of Investigative Journalistsbrought together hundreds of reporters from around the world to examine the millions of documents that were leaked to two reporters at the German newspaper Suddeutsche Zeitung. For their work, the I.C.I.J. won the Pulitzer Prize for explanatory reporting .

With the publication of the Paradise Papers--an extensive leak of documents primarily from a Bermudan law firm by the I.C.J.Uhttps://www.icij.org

400 reporters from around the world, spent much of this year sifting through some of the more than 13 million files. Scouring the Paradise Papers, With the Help of Almost 400 New Friends: "

The data the journalists released in the Paradise Papers tell the REALITY of the dark money undoing us all, as the banksters and the oligarchs and criminals who own the world's wealth, look to stash it.

I was stunned whenI first heard it on Vice news, and called Rob.

I was more astonished when it never reached the people.

Truth evaporates with this kind of $$$!

Is is idiocy that Republicans don't equate tRump's bailing out farmers affected by his tariffs and tRump's family products exempt from these tariffs as "Socialism."

Stupid American's (Republicans) don't realize all the local, county, state and federal Socialist policies they take advantage of every day.
