The Rachel Maddow Show Interviews Jon Stewart

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32545640

Jon shows us, yet again why he is an amazing person… and we are lucky to have him in the discourse of our country.  For laughs and for his humanity which is lost with so many television personalities… He is raw, real and not hype and loud.

Listen to this discourse, it is almost as if we were in England.  A debate, a civil back and fourth with no yelling and no name calling… most of all: NO CUTTING ANYONE OFF.  Listening, to each other is long lost in this country.  We are a dumb, sound-bite loving, 15 min. of fame seeking country.

We could learn from this… this is a “teachable moment”.  We need to cut the cord of the news culture and fix our problems, that means WE not US or THEM. Welcome to the civility of cultured speech.  Thanks Jon, and thanks Rachel!

The Corporation

3:00:06 – 2 years ago
You’d think that things like disasters, or the purity of childhood, or even milk, let alone water or air, would be sacred. But no. Corporations have no built-in limits on what, who, or how much they can exploit for profit. In the fifteenth century, the enclosure movement began to put fences around public grazing lands so that they might be privately owned and exploited. Today, every molecule on the planet is up for grabs. In a bid to own it all, corporations are patenting animals, plants, even your DNA. Around things too precious, vulnerable, sacred or important to the public interest, governments have, in the past, drawn protective boundaries against corporate exploitation. Today, governments are inviting corporations into domains from which they were previously barred. You’d think that things like disasters, or the purity of childhood, or even milk, let alone water or air, would be sacred. But no. Corporati…all
