The Securities and Exchange Commission should require publicly traded corporations to disclose their political spending. Please return the rule to the unified agenda and complete it as soon as possible.
It would be absurd for a small business owner not to know if his or her company’s money is being spent to help elect politicians. The same holds true for shareholders. Both shareholders and the public must be fully informed as to how much corporations spend on politics and which candidates are being promoted or attacked. Disclosures should be posted promptly on the SEC’s web site.
We need less emphasis on mortgages, loans and so on, and more economic justice for all peoples. We need less emphasis on farm and/or rural unfriendly real estate developments, and/or the prevention of metro/municiple annexation and/or zoning of thousands of acres of farming and/or natural areas into ex/sub/urbanized uses.
We need our farmers and their lands! Farmers regardless of the size of their farm should come first! In the SE TN, N Ga areas we need to allow waters to flow as they normally do, underground-not disrupting their flow,feeding into other SE USA waterways such as the Coosa, Conasauga, Tallapoosa, and eventually into the Mighty Mississippi river and it's Delta-these are supporting local economies, industries, recreation and the people's own clean drinking waters throughout the south and these areas need these waters to be allowed above or underground to flow into these areas to help sustain them, as they always have.
We do not need to urbanize more lands, or change them from farmlands, to industrial or residential lands. Lands must remain, or be "remade" into farmlands with emphasis placed on clean agriculture. The financial structure, etc, behind these sprawl activities, and so on, needs to be stopped and permanently prevented.
More strong environmental,prohealth care, economic justice, civilrights, pro-unionization and farming democrats are needed on all levels of government, and in the banking or financial services industry, and in the business, and energy sectors also.
We need to prevent more election "takeovers" in the future-let's simply appoint into office the many democrats needed as soon as possible, in (SE) TN and other areas.
Thank you for considering my comment.
