THE CUCKOO CLOCK! “Like the fella says, in Italy for 30-years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and the Renaissance. In Switzerland, they had brotherly love. They had 500-years of democracy and peace. And what did that produce? The cuckoo clock! So long, Holly!“ – Orson Welles as Harry Lime in 1949’s ‘The Third Man’

What Shkreli did is despicable, but there’s an aspect to this that is being ignored. Some of Congress’ biggest donors are doing essentially the same thing.

Pharmaceutical companies are raising the prices of their drugs to astronomical levels — perhaps not as high as Shkreli, but for the same reason — and few in Congress seem as outraged by that as they are with Shkreli.

Hard to accept that these imbeciles represent the people in our government.

RIGHT-TO-WORK LAWS HAVE ONLY 2-PURPOSES:
1- REMOVE LABOR WORKERS’ NEGOTIATOR SO WORKERS HAVE TO NEGOTIATE FOR THEMSELVES

THE POPE OF NORTH CAROLINA: Filthy Rich Right-Winger, Art Pope, Throws His Money Around To Politically “Recreate” The State In His Own Image – What, Does Lots Of Money Make Him North Carolina’s God! Koch Brothers Do Same “Creation” Bit, So Super-Rich Conservative, GOP Reactionaries Creating Their Own Version Of Eden Is Not New – And It’s Spreading Across The USA! Have You Even Heard On The MSM About ‘MORAL MONDAYS’?

The 900,000 poorest working families in North Carolina just got another tax hike from the conservatives who swept state legislature elections in 2010.

The change took effect at the beginning of 2014, meaning that the taxes those families file this spring will be the last to feature the state’s tax break for the working poor. The provision, known as the Earned Income Tax Credit or EITC, will also be 10 percent less generous in its final year. State-level EITCs work by tacking on an additional benefit to the federal EITC, and the law repealing North Carolina’s EITC for 2014 also cut the credit from 5 percent to 4.5 percent of the federal benefit.
