    in this country was two pronged, so that everybody could read the bible, and to provided an educated workforce, it is in the historical record.

    Obama's push for "healthcare reform" acknowledged the benefit to businesses and wall street, for example. The stats about down time, lost person hours, productivity losses have been talked up for some time now. Curing them is not pushedas a boon to the workerment, but management and owners.

    That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --

      1% and the 99% coincide for different reasons.  That's a good thing, in my view.  We ought to exploit those opportunities more often.

      I've stated before that if I had a business again, I'd be jumping for joy at the idea of SINGLE PAYER, not the ACA as it finally came out.  Why?  Because it's a pain in the ass when you're a small business trying to choose and administer a health plan for your employees and listen to them complain about their plan or their doctors.  It's not what you go into business to do.  So that's a place where the needs of the 1% and the 99% could intersect, except for the insurance industry which would try to sabotage it.  Still, that's just one industry.
