Corporate Accountability

It's good to see that corporate ass-pirates like Ken Lay and Jeff Skilling are finally being held accountable for their crimes against honest and decent people. The entire rolling blackout situation in California was their fault, make no mistake about it.

It would be nice to see politicians hit on this issue during the elections. There can be no doubt that the current administration is the "Enron" Presidency. (Did you know Bush and his team let Ken Lay interview potential cabinet members before their appointments? Awesome, huh.) The political climate created by the Bush Administration and most of the Republicans has bred this culture of raping the poor to pay the rich.

Enron is only one example.

And this is an issue the democrats can win on. No voter wants to vote for someone that had personal dealings with people as heinous as Kenneth Lay. No voter wants to vote for someone that is in favor of Enron style "Free Market Capitalism." Because this "Free Market Capitalism" is just a fancified term for the rape of the natural world and the poor.

People don't like that.

I don't like that.

Let's see something done about it in the mid-terms.
