Michigan & Congressional Republicans violate majority rule , cheating in American way of thinking; 99% r supermajority.

The Michigan Republicans are instituting increased corporate dictatorship of the 1% over the 99%. This was termed fascism in the 20th Century. It is unAmerican. That's why the 99% fought it so hard in the 1930's and 40's. Work -for- less law is a central feature of the regime along with financial dictators over cities, war on women's rights, privatization and destruction of the public school system ( the 1% want a nation of workers not a nation of thinkers) The aim of increased corporate dictatorship is to steal material values , wages, benefits,pensions,assets, properties, revenue streams, land, any and everything of value from the 99% for the 1%.

Profit margins are still getting wider. "With earnings growth (6.7%) rising at a faster rate than revenue growth (3.1%) in Q2 and in future quarters, companies have continued to discuss cost-cutting initiatives to maintain earnings growth rates and profit margins," said FactSet's John Butters on Friday.
This comes at a time when profit margins are already at historic highs.
Ever since the financial crisis, sales growth has been weak.  However, corporations have been able to deliver robust earnings growth by fattening profit margins. Much of this has been done by laying off workers and squeezing more productivity out of those on the payroll.
Stock market bears have warned that these margins are doomed to revert, leading to a correction in profits and stock prices.
For now, all signs point to continued margin growth.
"[T]he majority of earnings growth we have observed so far this quarter has been a function of margins, as companies continue to operate with as few expenses as possible," wrote analysts at JP Morgan Asset management.
Here's Butters' margin chart:
Butters' note include these anecdotes from this season's earnings conference calls.
“The first step to building the right organization for our ambitions is to realign our workforce. With this in mind, we will begin to reduce the size of our overall workforce by up to 18,000 jobs in the next year.” – Microsoft (Jul. 15)
“Alcoa continues to drive strong performance across all businesses, delivering $302 million in second quarter productivity gains across all segments and $556 million in year-over-year productivity gains in the first half of 2014 against an $850 million annual target. Productivity gains have been driven by process improvements and procurement savings across all businesses.” –Alcoa (Jul. 8)
Among the early reporters, companies in food-oriented industries in particular have highlighted cost cutting measures.

“Cost savings from the company's CCI program and the impact of higher-margin industrial products improved gross profit margin, which rose to 39.9% from 39.3% in the year-ago period.” –McCormick & Co. (Jun. 26)
“Our Consumer Foods supply chain cost reduction programs continue to yield good results, and delivered cost savings of approximately $50 million for the quarter.” –ConAgra Foods (Jun. 26)
“In addition, supply chain cost-savings from our ongoing Holistic Margin Management (HMM) program are expected to exceed $400 million in 2015. We anticipate these savings will offset input cost inflation, which we estimate at 3 percent for the new year.” –General Mills (Jun. 25)
“We remain focused on cost discipline to offset the negative effects of our gross profit dollar growth. We will be accelerating our optimization efforts, taking additional steps to lower our expenses company- wide.” –Walgreen (Jun. 24)
“We've continued to achieve a more cost-effective platform. Transformative changes that we've talked about the past in Darden's operations have significantly reduced costs by over $150 million annually in selected operating areas around support including supply chain, facilities management, water and energy usage.” –Darden Restaurants (Jun. 20)







 Yet why are the Republicans, in Michigan and in general so desperate AS TO EGREGIOUSLY VIOLATE THE FUNDAMENTAL AMERICAN PRINCIPLE THAT THE MAJORITY RULES; THE MINORITY FOLLOWS THE MAJORITY'S LEAD? Desperation is a sign of weakness. They sense a weakness in themselves , in their status as the elite ruling class. The 1% feels vulnerable to the 99% rising for income equality





 Majority rule

Obama  is clearly acting more freely in a progressive way since he doesn't face anymore elections. He has big majorities for what he is doing.For the Republicans to try to thwart everything Obama tries to do is unAmerican Republicans are sore losers. They are bigtime cheaters.

Those majorities are bigger than the majority the media gives the impression he has. For one thing, the Republicans gerrymandered the House of Rep districts outrageously, really against the basic American democratic principle of majority rule and so fundamentally illegal. So, the whole charade since 2010 , as the main media (not just Fox) presents it , is the Republican House is equal with the President in every damn thing.  The Republican House has brazenly tried to usurp Presidential Executive Power, and CBS, NBC, ABC, don't call em on it. Just report it as the two legitimate sides of national political discourse.  The Republicans are political criminals right now in terms of the fundamentals of American democracy. Anyway, it gives the impression Obama has smaller popular majorities for his policies than he does.

Republican Gerrymandering is unAmerican because it cheats on majority rule.

The majority supporting Obama nationally is even greater than current events reflect, because the House of Representatives's districts were gerrrymandered after the tea Republican surge in 2010; to there were more votes for Democratic House members in 2012, but that was not reflected in a Democratic majority in the House.

" Let's be for real, Detroit officers are now making $14.59 per hour."

  " Let's be for real, Detroit officers are now making $14.59 per hour."


Kevin D. Miller, THE GOOD POLICE; member, Coleman A. Young, Democratic Club.

 
Talking about race relations on the DPD, and how things have improved. Trust, there is much that has not improved. Let's be for real, officers are now making $14.59 per hour. What an insult. This is not happening in any other city in Michigan, that's a clear case of racism vividly exposed, and being ignored at the same time.
Let's be for real, there are blacks and whites afraid to do the new things to address racism and class prejudices.
Come on, folks are walking around talking softly, while Synder and Orr are taking hard bat hits upside the head of elected officials. Make no mistake, race is apart of the equation as to why the war will continue.

Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt's Second Bill of Rights, the Super New Deal


 Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt's Second Bill of Rights, the Super New Deal, must be the Purpose and Mission of the Democratic Party , still, in 2014 and Beyond


 Charles Brown's photo.

FDR did get to this, which is still my program: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Bill_of_Rights





The Second Bill of Rights was a list of rights proposed by Franklin D. Roosevelt during his State of the Union Address on January 11, 1944.[1] In his address Roosevelt suggested that the nation had come to recognize, and should now implement, a second "bill of rights". Roosevelt's argument was that the "political rights" guaranteed by the constitution and the Bill of Rights had "proved inadequate to assure us equality in the pursuit of happiness." Roosevelt's remedy was to declare an "economic bill of rights" which would guarantee eight specific rights:
Roosevelt stated that having these rights would guarantee American security, and that America's place in the world depended upon how far these and similar rights had been carried into practice.
