stop corporate greed

"Cry Baby" by Melanie Martinez Statist Version

They call it statism, statism
But you don’t fucking care
Statism, statism
So you laugh through your tears

Statism, statism
‘Cause you don’t fucking care
Monopolies fall to the ground
You’ll just tax them out

You’ll just tax them out
Statism, statism…

You’re all on your own
And you lost all your cash
You told yourself that it’s not you, it’s Comcast

You’re one of a kind
And no one understands
But those corporate tears keep coming back again

Someone’s regulating the market
To stop that corporate greed
You lay out laws
Where everyone can see

Your heart’s too big for your profit
That’s why it won’t fit inside
You lay out laws
Where everyone can see

They call it statism, statism
But you don’t fucking care
Statism, statism
So you laugh through your tears

Statism, statism
‘Cause you don’t fucking care
Monopolies fall to the ground
You’ll just let them drown

Statism, statism
'Cause you don’t fucking care
Monopolies fall to the ground
You’ll just let them drown

I look at you and I see myself
And I know you better than anyone else
And I have the same faucet in my eyes
So your income is mine

Almost everything matters!

I’m starting to get tired of this leftist habit of declaring things irrelevant.

On second thought, this deserves its own post.

I’m tired of leftists saying that any policy which doesn’t fix everything doesn’t matter.

“A female President will still bomb people!” “A stronger social safety net won’t stop corporate greed from consuming everything it can!” “Gay marriage won’t end transphobia!” “More black representation in movies won’t solve racism!”

No shit. Patching a hole in your bedroom wall won’t make your teeth whiter or cure your grandmother’s dementia. It’s still worth doing.

Trade Justice NY organized a rally outside the Hilton Hotel in Midtown Manhattan, where secret meetings were being held to discuss the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). The TTIP would undermine democracy by granting corporations even more power and money.

Employers - the real welfare queen/king. 

Don’t blame workers who need public assistance because their highly profitable employer chooses to pay them poverty wages.
