"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

CitiGroup just doesn't get it!

I think it's time to cancel my CitiCard. I give up. These guys are just a bunch of worthless tools. They just bought a new $50 million corporate jet with taxpayer money. Fuckwads... I love this. When asked for comment, the head of CitiFlight said

"Why should I help you when what you write will be used to the detriment of our company?" replied Bill McNamee, head of CitiFlight Inc., the subsidiary that manages Citigroup's corporate fleet, when asked to comment about the new 7X.

"What relevance does it have but to hurt my company?"

I guess it's true. It's hard to spin this in any kind of positive light.

No, McNamee, YOU are one of the ones hurting your poor, litle company with your blindly arrogant behavior. YOU are responsible.

It's funny, the repubs all want to talk about going back to the traditions of the founding fathers, except when it comes to their attitudes about corporations. In those times, people forming a corporation had to get a charter from the state for its existence; and they were only allowed to stay in existence a certain amount of time, until their stated goal, such as building a railroad, was completed. Then, they were dissolved. How things have changed. Now, thanks to the error of a court clerk in the 1890's, corporations have the rights of personhood; but they also have one privilege that none of us will ever have, namely, potentially unending life. They can legally live forever. What an edge! It's led to a gross imbalance of power between corporations and the people who run them and feed on that power, and the rest of us who are exploited one way or another by them. This gross power imbalance needs to change.
