Sincerely, your corporate masters

From Wikipedia: “Astroturfing is a form of advocacy often in support of a political or corporate agenda designed to give the appearance of a “grassroots” movement. The goal of such campaigns is to disguise the efforts of a political and/or commercial entity as an independent public reaction to some political entity—a politician, political group, product, service or event.” It was used to create the “Tea Party”.

I imagine this going through channels, to Tea Baggers and GOP: “As per our deal we supported you financially, and you followed orders well–you pushed for deregulation, you’re working on gutting environmental laws, you’re keeping us from being taxed, you’re against consumer laws. All good. But–in your zeal, your using the debt limit ceiling this way…back off from that! We’re losing money here! Next time, check with us first.

Sincerely, your corporate masters.”
