"In a recent poll by the Pew Research Center, 77 percent of Americans said too much power is concentrated in the hands of a few rich people and large corporations. In a poll by Time Magazine, 86 percent of Americans said Wall Street and its lobbyists have too much influence in Washington."

++++++++++++++++++ Then, VOTE! VOTE THESE 1% AND THEIR CRONIES RIGHT OUT OF POWER!

More articles like these need to be written and place in newspapers, television news broadcasts, and commercials.

BUT, Don't forget--Too Small--Can be a problem too! After all, I quit a small cleaning company, after it became a non-incorporated company, because it was soo small it managed to stay under the radar and got away with non compliance on so many laws and probably still is. After all, the owner/ operator is the same Holier than thou person who is the one and only follower of someone too holy too righteous to be limited to obeying the law of the land.

Yep, all good.

(By the way, just read another article here about appalling business-speak. What kind of a word is "Corporatocracy"? Nothing my spell check seems to recognise, anyway. Suppose have to add that to the vocabulary now. Sigh.)
