America's Corporate Oligarchy Endangered by "Democracy Uprising"

'The reason you can't get democratic leaders to join [the democracy uprising] is because they agree' [that unions should be busted]. 'Right in the middle of the Madison affair, the CEO of Goldman Sacs, Lloyd Blankfein, got a $12.5 million bonus and his base pay was more than tripled.'

'It was heartening to see that there are tens of thousands protesting in Madison... That's the beginning, maybe, of what we really need here, a democracy uprising. Democracy has almost been eviscerated.'

The next election is going to break all campaign spending records at over $2 billion for Barack 'Bipartisan Compromise' Obama's campaign, the man's whose 2008 campaign was overwhelmingly funded by (big surprise) Wall Street.

Wisconsin Budget Repair Bill Protest from Matt Wisniewski on Vimeo.
Matt Wisniewski, a 22-year-old college student at the University of Wisconsin, put together this inspiring video in support of unions in Wisconsin. The video consists of three days of footage of the 30,000 protesters at the state capitol in Madison against a bill that would drastically curb the bargaining power of public employees in unions. The accompanying song is Arcade Fire’s “Rebellion (Lies).”

Wolfowitz Sees Corporate Health Mogul as Egyptian Transition Leader

Hossam Badrawi
Today President Obama released a statement to the press that the U.S. will do all it can to support the orderly transition of Egypt to a [corporate oligarchy]. In a recent article in The American, Paul Wolfowitz states he sees a new transition figure emerging in Egypt; Dr. Hossam Badrawi, "a board member and strategic shareholder in Nile Badrawi Hospital, one of the largest hospitals in Cairo." Dr. Badrawi also "started the first healthcare management organizations (HMO) company in Egypt which is currently one of the largest HMOs in the private sector." And we all know how well HMOs work in America.

So it would appear that Egypt's current government run healthcare system, in which "nearly all Egyptians have access to healthcare," is a prime candidate for American style corporate wealthcare. America must stop that healthcare for all nonsense and get Egypt back to American values where we make sure at least 15% of the citizens of the country have no healthcare insurance, because they can't afford to pay for it. After all, how can we expect American based corporate healthcare industry to take a foothold in Egypt if they can't see at least 30% profit margins like they do in the US.
