The Real World Government
Response to Bill Hodgson’s post on Wal-Mart’s collecting donations of food so their employees might have a happy Holliday.

ChinaMart, a 300 billion/yr mega corporation, demonstrates that corporations have more power in our contemporary world than any government, Including ours. And "We the people" allow them to get away with it. Electing officials who support this kind of abuse. AND this is not new, it has been going on for 20+ years. We are just now becoming aware of it. This is as embarrassing as having no national health care, resulting in worse health care for the disadvantaged, the poor, the very young, our vets; than in many "developing nations". How long are we going to put up with this???? The Koch Bros. and Rupert Murdock (just a couple of the many names that rule our country and the world), have more power than the US Senate.
There is an annual convention in Davos, Switzerland called the World Economic Forum, where the mega corps meet so set policy. attendees come by invitation only. Corporations must have annual sales of at least $1 billion to be considered and pay $40,000/attendee for the week, except the thirty or national leaders who are considered guests. Together these corporations represent 80% of the world's industrial output. That is the world government. Think about it.
