    Corporate just has all the assets and access.

    If you want to do something you have to go through corporate somewhere, and you have to have the money to do so, which means you probably have to contract through/with corporate.

    One of the things that has bothered me for such a long time is how much deep pocketed corporate has raised the barrier to entry for nearly all business.

    They just don't care about up front costs - $5000 in rent per month is not at all a problem it's a write off. But for non-aligned independent business it's a deal breaker.

    We simply have to deal with corporate. There is no alternative.

    It's a fucking mess...

    But yea, the corporate media totally sucks for Democracy.

    Democracy - 1 person 1 vote. Free Markets - More dollars more power.

      before it gets better.

      "Judge Denise Lind, an Army colonel, refused to drop the crucial charge of "aiding the enemy" Thursday despite Manning's defense team’s urging her to do so on the grounds the charge is "overbroad" and should be "void for vagueness."  
      The charge could set a precedent that could have a chilling effect on national security journalists and whistleblowers across the nation. The government has argued that by leaking information to the press, Manning was communicating with the enemy indirectly and that this alone is sufficient to constitute the charge. Normally, a prosecutor would have to establish the intent of the defendant, but that requirement was bypassed at Fort Meade.
      The sentence carries with it the potential for capital punishment, but prosecutors did not pursue the death penalty in Manning's case. Instead he is more likely facing life imprisonment.
      "That’s an outrageous charge with the greatest potential for dealing almost a deathblow to investigative journalism involving national security," said Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, during a news conference Friday. "The interpretation of his motives is an absurd fantasy that he did this for fame or for his own purposes, let alone to give information to an enemy to which he clearly does not adhere a requirement for a treason charge anymore than I did.""
