Feather merchants, During the early days of the US Army, perhaps as early as the Revolutionary War, it was used to describe unscrupulous merchants (perhaps precursors of Haliburton) who would include rocks and other heavy objects to add weight to the feathers sold to the government that were used for soldiers' pillows, mattresses and such, so to increase the contractors profits. The only thing worse is the yes master sycophants that trail behind the bigmouth bus that carries all their fears, justifications and bigotry with a big US flag on one side and a confederate flag on the other side.
I love dogs, well, I love some of my dogs, well , some of my dogs love me most of the time, well, all my dogs should love me, hell, anyone should love me if I feed them, walk them, play with them, brush them, push their ugly asses uphill, wash them, shelter them, train them, let them slobber on me, lick me, follow me, make me pick up their shit, bury their shit, let them bring me shit and put up with their shit. But, I draw the line at pushing them around in shopping carts. They might as well be cats that don't purr.
One of the consistent complaints I have heard is that there is little information on the quality of condoms on the market. Basically , which brand or brands rate best on not ripping and which lubricants serve which types best. No one wants to give 100% guarantees but surely some should be better than others to prevent infection or pregnancy as opposed to sensitivity and "naturalness" which is the main Market push.
I had a neighbor, artist that did some of the murals at the Museum, late at night, all by himself. He said the atmosphere was horrible. One thing, especially creepy was an elephant ear as a map of Africa, with small Dik Dik deer heads to mark cities. The mentality of "Death Museum" contributors that justify the rationalization to hobby kill by saying it good to kill a few so that one can have more to kill later is just as creepy and sick. Supporting this monument to death and greed with child brainwashing trips is like using scouting to train assassins.
I would like to see examples of : "Rich being taxed into obscurity" as opposed to being screwed by their competitors or just being poor businessmen. They will always be able to find, stooges or minions ( despicable businessmen in waiting), who see themselves as Captain America to kiss their behinds and defend them, (as they hope to be one someday). Then they can "Reserve the right" to ignore the rights of anyone who wants to get into heaven easier than a camel trying to get thru the eye of a needle. There is a place in Dantes Inferno for the greedy, glutenous and corporate. A country club for the damned.
Every so often, decade after decade, they try to give the legislature a pay raise. I vote for it every time. It never passes because certain voters in this state are myopic and stupid. You are asking people to do a difficult, and obviously thankless, job without giving credit for its importance. So, it is left up to the corporate lobbyist whores to buy up, own and control our legislators. People say, oh, they are stupid venal bastards so why should we give them a decent wage. Why, because, otherwise they become, lickspittle, bootlicking, scab poltroons such as the AZ republican legislators of which we have become cursed. They irony of people who disparage government and all who work in it scrambling over each other to get their share of all their worst criticisms of that selfsame organization is not lost on the rest of us. All of you who voted for Douchey remember that you deserve what you get , unlike the rest of us. I scream, you scream, none of us deserve the Doucheabags cream.
If you support something, if you believe in what you are doing why do you need to be anonymous? People who believe in the American Way say they want freedom of speech, religion, right to vote etc. so why the need for secrecy, bribery, thought control. There is that ugly, greedy and self centered part of the business community that believes that money, their money should be used to manipulate, control and abuse "democracy" for their and only their purposes of selfishness. They are basically cowards, hiding behind their paid right wing stooges, with "Jobs" as slaves, "Religion" as justification, "military" as cannon fodder for profitable wars, "Politicians , as government, by the businessmen, for the businessmen and against the smaller businessmen, "Deregulation, of laws necessitated by their rabid exploitation of resources, " Taxes" which they don't pay but they exploit, Patriotism, where they and their children don't serve. If you are proud of what you do, why hide? Their businesses are in China , Russia, Middle east but they hide in America, Europe, Canada, Australia. They make cool aid, meds, sugar and salt for their stooges with names like : Douche, Flaky, McPain and McSelly. They don't call it dark money unless it hides in the shadows from shame.
