A post on TomCat's blog. ONE thing this week which seems to call for the concentrated attention of the Greek Furies.

Uhm…hello “Hundreds of thousands of comments, purportedly made by Americans, have come in over the electronic transom to at least five different federal agencies calling for an end to Obama-era consumer protections and other regulations that impede profits…” and after the first few thousand alarm bells didn’t go off like mad?

For goodness sake, how many individuals without ties to corporations or other money-loving groups would want their protection as a consumer to be uprooted and taken away from them again? It makes absolutely no sense! Corporations have completely overplayed their hands, just the statistics would be enough to throw all these comments and petitions out of the window, but Schneiderman is made to officially investigate it and then stonewalled.

Alecto, Megaera and Tisiphone, girls you have an impossible job to do in corporate-run America, but I suggest you start by waking up the consumers in America, which everyone is one way or another, to the spiel the corporations are playing in their name and start up some huge counter actions. Good luck.
