"I've seen honest faces before, they usually come attached to liars!"

Corporate (and political) unabashed greed, lies and corruption = truth?

I was in the parking lot of a Smart & Final today and witnessed an individual putting his groceries in the back of his car. He suddenly looked around the parking lot, apparently having previously spotted a homeless man and took from the recently loaded back of his vehicle a loaf of bread and a package of sandwich meat, walked to an empty shopping cart and placed both food items in the basket. He then pushed the cart to where the homeless man was, who was wearing an obviously, old, worn face mask and I heard him say, "Excuse me, sir!" and gave him the cart with the food. He then walked back to his car and seemed to realize he forgot something at which time he opened the back of his car and took out a large jug of juice and took that to the man he previously gave the bread and sandwich meat to. I then overheard him say to the man, "I'm sorry, I should have realized you can't eat a sandwich without something to drink! I'm sorry it is not cold."

As the man walked back to his car I noticed his face and he was teary eyed. I wanted to ask him... but ultimately did not.

This seemed to me to be a single act of kindness. One that appeared to have evoked thoughts of perhaps wondering why in the richest country in the world there must be so many people like this homeless man.

In an ever growing world dominated by corporations we have seen the successful resurgence of the corporate monopoly!  Whether you want to believe it or not many of the largest and most (politically) powerful corporations have a strangle hold on products, services and governments.  The latest news in the U.S., Kraft merging with Heinz, but don't forget Comcast and Time Warner or Exon and Mobil to name a few of the larger mergers in recent time.  These are the ones with names we are familiar with, how about Vodifone, Cellco, RBS Holdings and the list goes on!  The folks (crooks) doing these deals will tell you it is a good thing and that the costs of goods and services provided by these companies will go down as a result of the mergers (monopolies).  Not so!  That is the biggest bunk of bull biscuits you'll hear!  In fact once a "market" is secured by many of these monopolies the total cost to the consumer of these goods and services goes up!  By a lot in many cases.  Check the trend in the cost of generic drug prices recently, not to mention brand name drugs.  We all know how gasoline prices have out paced inflation by four football fields in the last 4 decades, not to mention food (especially food commodities - what a con job).

Check out this video and then also review what and why large corporations like Monsanto are genetically modifying plants, seeds and other living food products.  See if you can look past the advertising hype that "this is only about creating more food for an increasingly more hungry world" line.

Infrastructure does not have to be restricted to the construction industry only!  Please do not be so narrow minded and uncreative in your thinking when it comes to proposing a plan to generate job growth for our country! 

Here is the challenge:  I cannot think of one time where cutting taxes has spurred job growth, not a single one!  Why do we hear this lie perpetuated over and over again by conservatives?  Trickle down economics has been proven NOT to work!  The government, our government must be playing an integral role in creating jobs and thereby stimulating the economy.  Any 1st year student of history or economics knows this as fact!

If you can reference any actual historical fact where tax cuts and trickle down economics worked to turn around or stimulate a down economy please post it here!

The children in Congress need to stop playing politics and arguing over the rhetoric instead of the facts – go ahead but let’s get this done instead of lying and cheating the American people!  Please!

First off, I can't get a sale price unless I use their new app (wonder what the app asks to have access to on my Smart Phone? (Contacts?) Second the app is getting really crappy reviews, people complaining how dysfunctional and difficult it is to use, features and functions not working properly!  Forget it! I'm giving up on Smart & Final, no more shopping there unless it's an emergency or I need a bag of ice or something!  Kiss my ass Smart & Final! I'm boycotting the chain of stores becuase their executive management is full of greedy fat cat pigs! The worst customer experience equals no customer in my case!


If corporations are people then they are evil, psychotic sociopaths!
It seems regardless they are anyway... as well as evil, greedy narsissists!
