Entangled Alliance With Big Biz

Stuff in this column which is very revealing, indeed.  More important, it is a warning to Republican members of Congress:  one can have entangling alliances with domestic enemies, not just foreign ones.  And one does so at one's own peril.

...In The Diversity Machine, sociologist Fred Lynch details how corporations teamed up with progressives to fight the Reagan Justice Department’s attempt to end group preferences based on race, ethnicity, and gender. Attorney General Edwin Meese met strong resistance from the business community.... effort which will be furthered by Obozo, of course.


...Speaking to Atlantic reporter Chrystia Freeland in 2011, a U.S.-based CEO of one of the world’s largest hedge funds described an internal debate at his company. One of his senior colleagues had suggested that the “hollowing out of the American middle class didn’t really matter,” the CEO told Freeland, adding: “His point was that if the transformation of the world economy lifts four people in China and India out of poverty and into the middle class, and [that] meanwhile means one American drops out of the middle class, that’s not such a bad trade.”. . . .

Nice. And more:

....from a top Colgate-Palmolive executive, who in 1989 said, “There is no mindset [at Colgate] that puts this country [the United States] first.”...

I don't need any of your s*&t products, either.
