More Corporate Crap Taking Over The world…

The other day I was talking to a woman and the topic rolled around to development. We were standing across the street from a newly built building. There were people coming in and out and one person was carrying their laundry. She remarked that she was surprised that the building didn’t have laundry facilities. I found it strange too since the tenants are probably paying market value. Well my concerns are the usual. Corporations taking over every aspect of our existence.

Here is an article that proves my point:

And a sad goodbye:

Although Mixed Greens claims to be the first curated website, Next Monet started way before them. Unfortunately Next Monet was sold to a group in Miami who eventually let it go by the wayside. If that Russian Group were to put some energy into the art community, then I would feel OK about their .Art acquisition. But it’s a very different mentality. It’s really all about money and no soul. If it were about soul plus money, then I could get behind it.

And here we have another Big Brother:

It’s amazing to me how so many people have no conscience. Or is it that they hand over decision making to those who are only interested in manipulating and making money?

My graphic novel, Greetings From Karpland addresses this issue. If you’ve been reading the other blog, You’ll know that it takes money to make money. Unfortunately the problem is that once you invite large corporations into the equation, things change and not necessarily for the better. Ivan is finding this out the hard way. His ideas are brilliant but he is way out of his league.

Senator Elizabeth Warren should run for president:

I may just vote for her anyway.

Stay tuned….
