Corporate Pirate Takeover Exposed!

I'd like to think a few conservatives might just accidently run across and read the following report by the Center for Media and Democracy. It's happening, and might even be too late to do anything, but at least you'll know why. There's even a cartoon:

Exposed: The 'Privatizers and Profiteers' Taking Over Public Services

New online tool from Center for Media and Democracy tracks privitization and its drastic effects on public, environmental health … "Across the country, for-profit companies are engaged in a hostile takeover of our schools, roads, prisons, drinking water, and even local government itself," said Lisa Graves, Executive Director of the CMD, adding that the "project will give taxpayers the tools they need to identify these privatizers and profiteers, their eye-popping salaries, and the raw deals contained in their contracts that puts taxpayers on the hook, and it will tell taxpayers how they can take back control of public assets and public services." 

The new web-tool,, will provide weekly "corporate profiles of America’s most notorious corporations that are quietly working with state and local lawmakers to take over public services with little accountability."
