Do you help fund Al Sharpton and his National Action Network (NAN)? You do if you spend money with Walmart, PepsiCo, Colgate-Palmolive or Aneuser-Busch. The NY Post asserted that these companies donated to NAN to prevent boycotts from their supporters. Isn’t that extortion?
Do you think if enough people boycotted these corporate giants that they would stop supporting NAN? Would Al Sharpton stop inciting riots and violence if he were to lose enough funding? Are you strong enough to boycott these corporate giants and let everyone know it? You could be labeled racist…
People like NY Mayor Bill de Blasio and Al Sharpton might want to be careful as they encourage anarchy in their communities. They might just get it. Even though they may be above the law at this point in their career, they should consider the faction they are alienating, inciting and confronting. Without police protection, they wouldn’t last very long.
Throughout the world, people commit acts of rioting and terrorism; but when citizens of the USA commit these same acts on American soil, it’s known as civil unrest. There seems to be one exception: when these acts are committed against the federal government or the infrastructure.
On planet earth, an American is not known by his skin color. If you want to be known as anything other than an American, it’s your right. But also realize that you when put another country before the country you have chosen to make your home, you have divided your loyalty. I don’t care if you’re Mexican American, Latin American, African American or Irish American.
Don’t expect the same respect from anyone, either in America or anywhere in the world. Your country of origin (other than the USA) could give a shit less about you. Here, people are still willing to fight and die for your freedoms. I don’t expect this to continue much longer.
If Barack Obama is the most admired man and Hillary Clinton is the most admired woman in America, then Jonathan Gruber was right in stating “the stupidity of the American voter”. Either that or the Gallup poll is now a propaganda machine… or perhaps both. I did take solace when I saw that Vladimir Putin took 10th place.
Keep in mind that 40% of the 1,000 people Newsweek tested, failed a U.S. Citizenship test. Quite simply, if you don’t know about America, you probably don’t know anything other than you’re free to run your mouth, whether you make sense or not…intellect and reason is no longer a requirement.
I am freaking sick of hearing how well our economy is doing under the current administration! We are witnessing the biggest ponzi scheme in the history of the world. Similar to Germany’s economy under Hitler, mainly by the use of “Mefo bills” aka Government IOU’s.
Globalization - term for businesses diversifying and integrating into other countries and markets. Reasons include, but not limited to: tax incentives, increased revenue and market share, less risk in economic downturn. Corporate America not in bed with the government are taking their assets and infrastructure out of America as fast as they can; our tax rate is safest excuse not to incite panic.
Our only economic salvation may be that the Federal Reserve Bank and the IMF is not run by the American government. Otherwise, our political puppets would burn the world down for pennies on the dollar.
