    tldr: reading through house bills makes it painfully obvious how congresspeople are working for corporations, most bills are revisions of previous laws, going back and reading those laws uncovers interesting facts like fossil fuel waste is not considered hazardous.

    Govt. is rapidly trying to privatize everything; we really need to get together and talk about what its OK to make money from.
    The school system as it exists is designed to perpetuate wage slaves. If I’m working I have to be doing it for a paycheck or it doesn’t make any sense.

    Walmart employment is subsidized by public funds because full-time workers are still below the poverty line.
    Telecommuting as a way to build community? Unfortunately companies are run by baby boomers whose time should have past, and telecommuting doesn’t allow them to watch their employees. This doesn’t comply with the way that many people work. You must work really fucking hard Matt. Jen works hard, but not on a schedule.
    Stock act is supposed to report their financial dealings, and a bill passed by unanimous consent which gutted the Stock act. Obama signed this into law on a Monday, “coincidentally” 2 hours before the boston bombing (lol). Obama and the house and the senate worked together for 4 days to gut the stock act. 500, 600 page bills come out overnight with overwhelmingly minimal periods of time to read them; it is extremely clear that the lawmakers are not reading the legislation they are passing.

    Will the war in Syria happen? Republicans are jumping on the no war bandwagon, and this could end up becoming a constitutional crisis.
    4 am, God has stopped the video and I must sleep.
