We're almost done with the most costly and annoying presidential race ever. Thank goodness, right? Here's a video that gives you the fascinating backstory on corporations and what they're doing to democracy.

"The 100 biggest economies on earth are corporations." Scary...

You cannot currently send a star to Sue because you have done so within the last week.

Now you know why I don't watch television.

I'm with you Michael--most of what I want can be found on-line where I can easily avoid that aspect.

JLA, actually only 53 of the top 100 economies are corporations. (Which, I'll grant you, is quite scary).

In order words there are only 47 countries which are larger than the 53rd largest corporation.

(I knew as soon as I saw your comment that it couldn't be correct, since there is no way that any single corporation could have passed the US or China. Though I don't know how many more years we have until it happens.....)

I stand corrected William--thanks...and do indeed agree that it is still quite scary. A green star is headed your way--factual accuracy is indeed important.
