The Political Industrial Complex: Government of, by and for… Consultants! | Moyers & Company

Interesting article. Introduced me to the term “unlobbyists”…

SOURCE: Moyers & Company

“As we should certainly have learned by now, what’s good for any particular industry isn’t necessarily good for America. In this era of the endless campaign, America’s elected representatives and wannabes are surrounded 24/7 by politician-whisperers who do what they need to do to keep those paychecks coming. Pollsters advise candidates how to win, not how to become the next chapter in Profiles in Courage.” ~ Kathy Kiely

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!

Graffiti Girl

Graffiti Girl (GG) is curator at JoAnnChateau.com. She's progressive to the core, and easily blown away by serendipity and/or good food. (OK, GG is really JoAnn.) GG's posts signal that news or content from another website is a "must-see" and "must-remember."
