Only a click away from the “Big Picture”
Sadly, one of the best in the world of journalism, Mr. Bob Herbert, has gone off to do some other things. The link below will take you to his “goodbye” column from Friday’s edition of the New York Times, this is highly recommended reading no matter what your political affiliation may be.
I’ve heard the phrase “read it and weep” a lot over the years, and I’m certain that reading this will take you on a short tour of what that really means to people in the U.S.A. capable of thinking.
We as a country are screwed that absolutely any one can see it.
And now that true level of just how screwed we are is coming into clear view as one layer at a time is peeled away onion style, and the rancid smelling inner view gets worse by the minute.
The latest layer? Do a little research on the employment history of Mr. Jeffrey Immelt, that smiling CEO shown above who is the leader of a company that paid no taxes last year, and that’s on over five billion dollars of profits in the U. S. alone. Also note that in fact this company claimed a tax benefit of $3.2 billion dollars. Do you still have any doubt that the fix is in for those with a good lobbyist and a close connection to the political world?
And his corporation? If you said GEE WHIZ, you’ve gone a few letters past it.
