Check this sh*t out. Correlation between our deficit/debt in the country and corporate profits. Interesting how the higher our deficit/debt gets, the more money corporations get...
Now, in fairness, correlation is not causation. So this could be a coincidence or there could be other factors involved, but it seems might suspicious.
- Definitely Something Fishy Going On
- Seems no problem to me

There's nothing fishy or suspicious, it's as obvious as a blue sky. State Capitalism is a form of feudalism. 99% of people are born into their station and remain there, while old money writes laws that benefit itself. This cliff was started in the 1970s when real liberals started to sell out and money was branded as speech. link
By now they have revoked the restrictions on that 1976 ruling with Citizens United, and now "free speech" (corporate money) can be used without limit to buy politicians. This is why trillions were lost into the debt so that failed CEOs of failed banks received golden parachutes, because these financially owned the law makers that enabled it, and that's just the worst and most recent example.
