Too Big To Feel

As more and more stories like this one emerge, I lose yet another fistful of faith in our political system. We may be going to the polls and voting, and that may make us feel like we have some control – but in reality, Big Business is who’s in control.

How could situations like this persist if Big Business did NOT own the law-makers and keepers of the land? And who are these people that dream up these schemes to leverage and profit from the misfortunes of others? How do they sleep at night? Probably, really well. 🙄

  1. Interesting. Private individuals also make money on the “vulture” business, but they are more limited in the amount of profit that’s allowed and of course more limited in the amount of liens they can purchase. I do wonder, all the time, how we came to this point and whether there really were any good ol’ days. Maybe greed has always been the law of the land. I remember reading books by Taylor Caldwell as a kid, in which she claimed that we have always been ruled by soul-less profiteers. They are clever bastards, for sure.

  2. Gail, I read a boatload of Taylor Caldwell as a child, too! My mom was into her big time (Doubleday Book-of-the-Month Club) and I was done with Scholastic by time I was 9 or 10 LOL. My favorite was “Glory and the Lightning”.
