5. Goldman Exec Quits in NYT Op-Ed

Goldman Sachs executive Greg Smith knows how to go out with a bang. “Today is my last day at Goldman Sachs,” he writes in a New York Times op-ed. He’s been at Goldman for 12 years, and says, “The environment now is as toxic and destructive as I have ever seen it.” Smith says the investment bank has lost its way. It used to want to help clients; now people call them “muppets” and “callously” talk about ripping them off. The firm changed the way it thought about leadership, he says. “Leadership used to be about ideas, setting an example and doing the right thing. Today, if you make enough money for the firm (and are not currently an ax murderer) you will be promoted into a position of influence.”

1. Drop Out Now, Romney!

Ouch. Despite a big cash advantage and frontrunner status, Mitt Romney managed only a third-place finish in last night’s primaries in Mississippi and Alabama—losing to Rick Santorum in both contests. Has the former governor gone from inevitable to unelectable? The Daily Beast’s Paul Begala on another sign that voters just don’t like Mitt. Plus, Howard Kurtz, Patricia Murphy, and more contributors weigh in on the results.

OBSCENE OIL PROFITS!


THIS POST IS FROM APRIL 28, 2011. NEWT GINGRICH IS LEADING PEOPLE ASTRAY OIL PRICES. THIS HAPPENS EVERY YEAR AROUND THIS TIME.

GAS &

                                                                   OIL

PARTY

I guess you are fit to be tied after hearing today’s news on profits for the oil industry‘s first quarter.  Many of us are paying $4/gal for gasoline to fill our cars. It just seems obscene, perverse and unjust all at once.  Especially when you add the millions we give these profiteers as OIL SUBSIDIES.  I was so moved that I wrote this email to the President and my federal elected representatives:

April 27, 2011

[recipient address was inserted here]

[recipient name was inserted here],

We are in challenging economic times.  The American people can no longer
look the other way and ignore veiled winks of the eye as we pay billions
of taxpayer dollars to oil companies in the form of subsidies while at the
same time they have the largest profits in recent memory.

Please use your vote and influence to END OIL SUBSIDIES. Your country will
appreciate your honest service and duty.

Sincerely,

Feel free to use this text, modify it and send it to your elected federal representatives.

Do those in the DC beltway care about our everyday struggles to stretch a dollar?  We have to pay for transportation to work. Then we have to decide between food, medication and cleaning our clothes we wear to work, etc.  “We” are the lower 98% of the population.  I have pointed out here how the great divide between the “haves and the have-nots” widens each day.  Can you imagine living in the miserable world that Paul Ryan and his republican brothers would visit upon us?  If you do nothing, don’t complain when miserable goes from concept to reality. I have to go down trying.
