“Socialism for the rich, capitalism for the poor”

Corporate welfare is a term that analogizes corporate subsidies to welfare payments for the poor.

The term is often used to describe a government’s bestowal of money grants, tax breaks, or other special favorable treatment on corporations or selected corporations, and implies that corporations are much less needy of such treatment than the poor.

The term is used interchangeably with crony capitalism; to the extent that there is a difference, the corporate welfare might be restricted only to direct government subsidies of major corporations, excluding tax loopholes and all manner of regulatory and trade decisions, which in practice could be much larger than any direct subsidies.

The term, “Corporate Welfare“, was reportedly invented in 1956 by Ralph Nader; conservatives like Grover Norquist prefer “Crony capitalism“.

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”’

Hunter

Poetic justice … in my book

Ian Gibson, a professional hunter for Chifuti Safaris, was killed by an elephant bull while guiding an elephant hunt in Chewore North in the lower Zambezi Valley.

Something to think about …. “Remember Tom Cotton”?


TCotIS

~~April 13, 2015~~ 

HOW CAN WE FORGET … ANY BETTER NOW?

What’s remarkable about the debacle over Sen. Tom Cotton‘s (R-Ark.) letter to Iran isn’t his hard-line policy stance, the unorthodox political maneuvering or even the GOP’s cavalier approach to so serious a foreign policy issue. In fact, Cotton has been doing genuinely wild things in foreign policy since his earliest days in Congress. His elevation to a Senate ringleader — one who appears to be taking very little internal GOP heat for a stunt that has damaged the party’s reputation — isn’t really about leadership or governing at all. It’s a sign of something much deeper than the letter: that deeply hawkish establishment Republican donors have demolished the small-government, war-skeptical tea party wing of the GOP that seemed ascendant just a few years ago.

In May 2013, then-freshman Rep. Cotton made his legislative foreign policy debut, offering the first amendments of his career in a House Foreign Affairs Committee markup session for what the GOP had dubbed the Nuclear Iran Prevention Act of 2013.

Cotton proposed an amendment that would significantly expand the list of Iranians subject to U.S. sanctions, based on nothing more than familial identity. Any relative to the “third degree of consanguinity” of the elite Iranians already on the sanctions list would automatically become subject to the same economic restrictions. In other words, as Cotton put it: “parents, children, aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, grandparents, great grandparents, grandkids, great grandkids.”
