Bribes, bribes, and more bribes

The news is out: [Walmart donated more than $4.5 million to politicians in 2020, including $2.35 million to Democrats and $2.2 million to Republicans. That’s a $2 million increase over the 2018 election year, according to Open Secrets. Of that amount, more than $1 million was donated by the company’s political action committee (PAC). The other $2.93 million was donated by “individuals,” or employees, members, or owners of the organization, as well as their immediate family members.
Other companies pulling back on their political giving following the violence in Washington include AT&T, Marriott International, and Morgan Stanley. McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski condemned the riots by endorsing a statement from leaders of large corporations that denounced President Donald Trump and other politicians who “incited this insurrection.”]

Ever wonder how politicians go from broke to millionaire? One word: bribes. They don’t give a damn about the people; they care about the corporations that inflate their bank accounts.
