I didn't want to enter a horse in this race, but as I read through these, I keep having to bite my tongue, so will give it a rest and say, what about Washington, full of lies, yet pretty much business as usual.

Best from,

Corporations generally don't do anything for the good of the public in a fundamental sense unless it is mandated by government. In the US in this era since the 80s of massive deregulation and consolidation, one cannot help but be more and more finical. Witness the massive financial collapse of the 2007-2008 period. All of the major companies got bailed out; none of their top executives went to jail and few got fined. This after the biggest poncy scheme in human history:the useless sub prime derivatives.

I don't know about that. I think they lie more by omission than commission. Not telling the whole story. Corporations are about themselves and the bottom line, not anything else. Maximize profit at all costs, so to speak.
