Corporatist America

A battle over the budget is closing our schools, our libraries, firing our teachers and taking away collective bargaining rights. While the banks and largest corporations are also not paying any taxes, including Bank of America, Exxon Mobil, and GE. Protesters today gathered in NYC's Union Square for the Sound of Resistance protest. The Nation Institute's Chris Hedges weighs in.

Not a bad summary of the corrupt US corporatist system, including the media's complicity in the whole thing. This is great except for his belief in AWG (climate warming) !
