Prices for electricity, meats and eggs reach record highs  Corporate-run media likes to make government bureaucrats appear divided, color-coded red and blue, put into republican and democrat boxing matches, but at their roots, nearly all politicians are the same, corrupted by their positions of power and the pressure of corporate money.
