First Retirement, Next Stop Healthcare!
Brought to You by the Firms and Banks that Brought Us The Great Recession!
One of the biggest changes in worker benefits over the last 30 years has been the shift from defined benefit retirement plans (i.e. pensions) to defined contribution retirement plans (IRAs). This shift was sold to workers as a way to give them more control over their finances. Funds that had previously been allocated to company retirement plans would be given directly to employees who could invest the money themselves - instead of entrusting them to a pension fund manager.
As the Pilgrims predated the Founding Fathers, so did the consumer precede the occupier.
Daniel Church interviews the first occupiers : those who camp out to score 20-30% off and grab BOGO deals on Black Friday. Church gets up close and personal, asking these loyal American consumers how – and why - they dedicate their time and effort to securing such bargains. A topic worthy of exploration. Counterpunch
Don't get set into one form, adapt
it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water...Now you put water in a
cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the
bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can
flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.
Human suffering, created by a killer storm, renders political bickering and horse-race elections meaningless, pushing the endless commentaries and political prevarications of shape-shifters and chronic bullshit artists like Ann Coulter far off the radar. Exposing their innate meanness and signifying an impending loss of relevance in light of mass mobilization and support for Sandy's victims. NY Times
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie.
It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
