Money… is Evil?

‘So you think that money is the root of all evil? Have you ever asked what is the root of money? Money is a tool of exchange, which can’t exist unless there are goods produced and men able to produce them… Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?’ – FD


TIL about the U.S. Chamber of Commerce

According to Tom Donohue, President of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, it’s 102-year-old existence has been to “Help the Government whenever (they) can.”

This he said on Fox News with Neil Cavuto today (011315).

This seemed odd to me.  Very odd.

So I went to their website.

From the Chamber directly:

“The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business organization representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions. Our members range from mom-and-pop shops and local chambers to leading industry associations and large corporations. They all share one thing in common—they count on the Chamber to be their voice in Washington, D.C.”

No mention of their newly revealed mission of “helping the Government whenever they can”.

In fact, there is no mention of such a move towards the cooperation between government and business reflective of Fascism anywhere on their site.

Take a moment and visit it:  www.uschamber.com

One can only take away from the Chamber’s site that they represent the interests of Business… not Government.

Mr. Donohue’s proclamation might just come as a surprise to the millions of business owners who donate millions of dollars to the Chamber, including their local chapters, and expect them to be advocating on their behalf.

Allow me to be the first to say…

“Surprise!”

It’s worth noting that every time you hear ‘Big Money Donors’ and ‘Washington Lobbyists’ in reference to Republican candidates, think U.S. Chamber of Commerce.  They are also a major reason we continue to get Establishment Liberal Republicans (Democrats with ‘R’s’ behind their names) as Presidential nominees.  It’s a big reason will will see more of the same this election cycle unless we wake up.


It’s Everything, Stupid!

James Carville famously stated “It’s the Economy, Stupid!”

He was Hailed at the time by the Press for his Simple Brilliance.  Simple Indeed… like his much ignored by the Anti-War on Women Soldiers “That’s what you get if you drag a $100 bill through a Trailer Park!”

Anyway… that was Clinton and this is Now.  (Well… Clinton is still dragging $100 bills through trailer parks… but I digress.)

Now is the Age of Obama and the Liberal Progressive Renaissance.

With the Awakening of the Socialist Left, it has ceased to be just about the Economy…
