The Death of Labor Law Reform, or Why the Democrats are So Pathetic and Meaningful Reform is Dead

 Bill Resnick for The Old Mole Variety Hour
 Why are the Congressional Democrats so weak and afraid? Why did they refuse to consider universal single payer health care, also called Medicare for All? Why last week did card check union organization die in the Congress? The card check provision was certainly the key part of the Labor Law Reform bill and labor’s top legislative priority. The AFL-CIO spent hundreds of millions of dollars in advertising and campaign contributions – yet its key section was killed by the Democrats. But how could that be?

Masters of the Universe, Redux

July 21, 2009

Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi gets to the heart of how one investment banking firm, Goldman Sachs, has engineered bubble after speculative bubble in the marketplace for years, always positioning itself to prosper in the wake of each disaster -- often at taxpayer expense.

What you need to know is the big picture: If America is circling the drain, Goldman Sachs has found a way to be that drain — an extremely unfortunate loophole in the system of Western democratic capitalism, which never foresaw that in a society governed passively by free markets and free elections, organized greed always defeats disorganized democracy.

Read it. It's a blueprint of how the executive class rigs the game for its own benefit.
