High Primal Thoughts

Tony’s keyboard produces some mighty fine thinking and I try not to miss it!
by Charlie Leck

Tony Rugare’s blog, From Tony’s Keyboard, is one I regularly visit. I like the way Tony gets to the point, makes it and gets out of the way. Below, for instance, is one of his blogs from last week. Bang! Bang! Bang! No messing around.

“My high primal thinker spouse stated in the According To Marge blog that "We are no longer a Democratic Republic. We are a Corporate Capitalistic Republic!" The Supreme Court has insured that this will persist when it ruled that the government may not ban political spending by corporations in candidate elections. The fox is in the henhouse and corporations will feast on chickens otherwise known as voters. The days of ten and twenty dollar contributions making a difference in political campaigns are over. Corporations will overwhelm the system and make sure "user friendly" individuals sit in governmental positions.

Tony’s point is painfully felt here in Minnesota. I wrote about it in the past week in my blog, Targeting Target! Target is using my money – part of the profits they made – to help finance the campaign of one of the most low-down jerks ever to run for political office. It’s part of the “can of worms” (or Pandora’s Box) that the Supreme Court opened with its recent decision about corporate political contributions. Now I’m forced to give up shopping in stores with which I’d grown comfortable.

Tony (or, perhaps, Tony’s wife) nailed it!

  1. Wow! What a shout, thank you. By the way, both you and my spouse provided the ammunition for the post.
