Sun Valley
The foxes gather to discuss the henhouse...

By Jeff Einstein

Just in case anyone asks: The annual Allen & Company Sun Valley Conference is where the world's largest drug cartel gathers in central Idaho each summer to fix prices, examine old and new alliances and debate distribution strategies. In other words, it's where the vastly entitled Kings and Queens of commercial media, high-tech and entertainment collude with their investment and political bagmen in broad daylight.

It's the Carrollean place where up is down and down is up, where freedom of the press in 21st-century America is celebrated, despite the fact that the paycheck of every reporter in the room is signed by someone else in the room.

It's the Carrollean place where up is down and down is up, where the true beneficiaries of campaign finance reform propagate the myth that whats important about campaign finance reform is where the money comes from instead of where it always winds up, then issue marching orders to squadrons of K Street lawyers and lobbyists (and the politicians they own) to ensure more campaign finance reform -- and billions more in their own pockets.

It's where true entitlement begins and ends, where Social Security and Medicaid and Medicare and Food Stamps are revealed for what they are: table scraps left behind by history's most rapacious drug dealers.

It's where the AllenCo gods makes the aristocratic thugs of OPEC and the drug kingpins of Mexico look like bit players in a community playhouse, and where anti-trust and monopoly laws are simply too mortal to apply.

It's obscene and intolerable. I'd write my senators to complain except they're way too busy raising money to buy campaign ads...
