Corporate America's Scam on Japan's Disaster

We already know how big major American corporations SQUEEZE, PINCH, GRAB, and DRAIN every penny they can out of average hard-working (and unemployed) American consumers. They will also profit off of human suffering, natural disasters, and death too.

Example from Change.Org - "As Japan struggles to overcome a disastrous string of events -- including a possible nuclear catastrophe -- millions of us have sought to help, often by donating money to urgent relief efforts. But if you donate via text message (i.e. AT&T and Verizon), your donations may take up to 90 days to reach aid organizations that need the money as soon as possible."

Corporate America wants to make money on disaster relief too! These are the same CEOs who want us to believe that they are upstanding "pillars" of our community; and to give them more tax breaks with the false promise of creating more jobs.

If you wish to donate, go directly to the Red Cross website and bypass the tele-communication giants (these corporate scam artists) who have already slammed us in the past to their long-distance carriers and overseas porn sites; and who have also charged us "roaming charges" and many other added charges in the fine print on our bills, including insurance and other services we never even sighed up for!

Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief at the Red Cross web site:

The president of the Red Cross says that 91 cents of every dollar donated goes to actual relief for the people.

Masaya Uchino, a law student in San Francisco with family in Japan, started a petition on Change.Org to demand that AT&T, Verizon, and other major phone service providers stop delaying much needed donations from reaching organizations doing relief work in Japan.
