Advancing Corporate America's Interests

Spreading freedom.

" I recently visited Central America. Everyone I talked with there was convinced that the military coup that had overthrown the democratically-elected president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, had been engineered by two US companies, with CIA support. And that the US and its new president were not standing up for democracy.
Earlier in the year Chiquita Brands International Inc. (formerly United Fruit) and Dole Food Co had severely criticized Zelaya for advocating an increase of 60% in Honduras’s minimum wage, claiming that the policy would cut into corporate profits. They were joined by a coalition of textile manufacturers and exporters, companies that rely on cheap labor to work in their sweatshops.
Memories are short in the US, but not in Central America..........

I was told by a Panamanian bank vice president, “Every multinational knows that if Honduras raises its hourly rate, the rest of Latin America and the Caribbean will have to follow. Haiti and Honduras have always set the bottom line for minimum wages. The big companies are determined to stop what they call a ‘leftist revolt’ in this hemisphere. In throwing out Zelaya they are sending frightening messages to all the other presidents who are trying to raise the living standards of their people.”
Your tax dollars support this shit. What a great cunt tree.

It's like we're the Big Kahuna in the Axis of Weavels.

True, our tax dollars supported this vile, hypocritical anti-democratic shit...but the redeeming feature of our thuggish actions seems to be that by some miracle of design (as per AmeriKKKa's "blessed by Gawd" status)...

...OUR *shit* don't stink!

One glance at today' GOP party merely proves that we are a morally and intellectually superior country. Heh.

corporate profits trump human rights every time, if we let them. I don't understand why the power of the internet hasn't been harnessed to boycott the companies that think people are for walking on.
