    Default PPP-Public-Private Partnership

    Ah yes,another $tinking $cheme to push more public treasure into private hands.Anytime anyone hears the term Public-Private Partnership(PPP),working class people need to know only one thing about it...'Capitalists are on the March'.

    ''The objective is to allow wealthy corporations to buy public assets at 'Firesale Prices' so they can turn them into Profit Generating Enterprises.That's it in a nutshell.''

    People need to realize that we have a Government who is not representing our interests in any way.Too many people are either unaware or misinformed about what BOTH Political Parties are doing to us,which is the 'Selling Off' of our Roadways,Toll Booths,Parking Meters,Water Services and countless other areas that our Cities and States used to Provide for us.The Military was Privatized during the Bush Administration when companies such as Blackwater,Halliburton and others were 'Awarded' No Bid Contracts.And of course,We the People,have no 'Damn Say' in the matter.

    President Trump has finally brought the Vulgarity,Corruption and Viciousness of what is called ''Crony Capitalism'' out into the open,and it 'STINKS' to High Heaven.Obama had more Finesse about this but the 'SMELL' was still there.There is a 'TON' of Private as well as Foreign money in this 'Infrastructure Plan,which is just a 'SELLING OFF' of America Itself.Of course 'BOTH' the Democrats and Republicans will 'SUPPORT' all of this.

    All is going as planned,let everything Crash and Burn and then have Private Companies pick up the pieces with 'LOFTY' Promises.By the time Americans wake up,they will be wholly 'OWNED' by some Corporation.

    And here we have Chicago's Parking Meters as 'JUST ONE' Example.....''The investors,Morgan Stanley,Abu Dhabi Investment Authority,and Allianz Capital Partners may earn a PROFIT of $9.58 Billion before interest,taxes,and depreciation,according to the documents for the Group's $500 Million note sale.''

    Good post wizard !
    It's all in that word called "privatization" ... the catch all word for some who want to restrict what the government can control.

    IMO, any operating authority that is for the betterment of the citizens should never be privatized or sold for profit.
    Water, sewer, electric and infrastructure should remain under the ownership of the people.

    Agreed!!!!....The MSM media reported last month that 56,000 bridges across America need 'Repair'.That's only a Small sample of the infrastructure 'Rot' throughout the 50 states.Interestingly,other industrialized Nations do not have infrastructure rot.Why?Other nations like Japan,China,Germany,Russia and many others have ''PUBLIC BANKS'' as well as Private Banks.The Public Banks work in concert with the State,Region,Municipality to 'FUND' at Reasonable Rates and Conditions the Social and Infrastructure needs as they arise.Most importantly,the 'Interest' on loans goes back to the people to 'FUND' more Social Needs ''INSTEAD'' of the Private Wall St Banks and their Stock-Holders.

    The current Washington,Corporate Capitalist Cartels ''WILL NOT'' Permit Public Banking.But,there 'Exists' one Successful example nonetheless...The ''North Dakota Bank'' has been around for 100 years,and I completely agree with having Public Banks.The North Dakota Bank had absolutely No Problems during the the 'Financial Meltdown'.

    The jails should never be privately owned....That is sickness.
    We really don't need people who rely on people being jailed for their profits sake....I can see all kinds of laws and misdemeanors changed from no jail time to tons of jail time if their profits increase to the point of having major impacts on lobby.....which they already do have an impact on lobby....or privatization of jails never would've happened.

    The legal system has always been about Money and Power.The U.S. was founded on laws protecting the Rich and Powerful and now they 'PROTECT' the interests of Multinational Corporations with the aid of Intelligence Agencies and the Military.


    The ''2 MILLION'' People Incarcerated are primarily Poor and Minorities with many imprisoned for ''MINOR OFFENSES'' and they are just a Disgraceful addition to the ''PROFIT'' making ''PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX''.........''FOLLOW THE MONEY''
