As a Boise health system grows, so does executive pay, Dec. 29, 2013.
Doesnt the news media make it obvious that President Eisenhowers admonition to the country to not let the industrial complex and the military take control of the government has been ignored? Is it possible that people elected and appointed to positions in government are mere figureheads who cater to industry and the military?
Hasnt President Obamas desire to provide health care for all our citizenry, gun control, immigration reform, etc. been thwarted by industries that provide those services to the people? Dont the military and industry have all the power, and mainly Republicans are very supportive of that brand of power, something about trickle down?
If were supposed to have freedom, justice and equality under God, who defines all that? Does freedom mean taking advantage of trusting and misguided people in order to advance ones personal agenda? Is justice defined by nine people who have some sort of education that allows them to impose their brand of justice on the people, for instance, giving corporations a vote as an individual? Isnt it obvious that inequality is rampant in our country? Hasnt Capitalism, obviously, as a would-be god, given our country trillions of dollars of debt? Where do we go from there?
