  • On An Overgrown Path: Whether the speech please or displease...
    I should like to say at this year s end that Annie Besant s words might better be dedicated to you for you have relentlessly adhered to her ethos Fearlessly you follow the Quaker injunction to Speak Truth to Power That is part of what causes me to regard your blog as the best among musical blogs on the internet If I may add a little to the question of corporate philanthropy I list here the top ten donors based in the U S in order of generosity Citibank General Electric Target J P Morgan Chase Bank of America Chevron Wells Fargo ExonMobil Goldman Sachs and Walmart We thus have six financial institutions for GE is such now two oil companies and two retailers When you sup with the devil use a long spoon It is beyond expression here so I suggest those interested in their activities and ethics just look at their Wiki entries The one for J P Morgan is the most mind boggling if you look at the section humorously headed Controversies In there I smell something of the demonic and others come close I note also that the evils listed were punished with fines there are patently illegal activities that destroyed people s lives but no one mentioned as joining the likes of Conrad Black in one America s comfy open prisons reserved for such villains There is no true philanthropy in their donations let alone altruism Goldman Sachs paid no taxes in 2010 it received a tax benefit of 3 2 billion They are required to give a minimum of 5 of profits in donations Triple that and they could probably feed Africa 1 27 pm Pliable said Philip thank you for those very kind words And one of the names on that list of top corporate philanthropists resonates strongly with the thrust of my post 3 54 pm Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom Chance headlines Loading Search On An Overgrown Path Loading Blog Archive 2016 19 February 5 January 14 2015 196 December 21 November 9 October 23 September 24 August 13 July 25 June 12 May 12 April 17 March 3 February 21 January 16 2014 211 December 13 November 23 October 13 September 19 August 17 July 10 June 21 May 27 April 15 March 2 February 23 January 28 2013 257 December 21 November 17 October 31 September 8 August 35 July 24 June 24 May 8 April 31 March 8 February 24 January 26 2012 276 December 22 2013 the year of the repeat repeat repeat Whether the speech please or displease There cannot be and there will not be lost memory On the edge of transcendence Do you know any really normal people The answer my friends was blowin in the wind When will they ever learn A cornucopia of composer anniversary tat The sound of one monk jumping CD I didn t really want to do goes prime time Life
