Whose Been Filtering the #mepolitics Twitter Stream?



TWEET THIS POST ! http://goo.gl/fguFuY

Yesterday, I noticed that my posts were either not displaying or went missing after a while on the #mepolitics twitter stream, which streams live on As Maine Goes.

I also noticed that there were other independent political voices missing from that same stream and the stream took on an eerie appearance of the eternal brotherhood of the Maine government & the Maine press, useful, to my perspective, only in keeping up to date on news stories such as the story published by the Bangor Daily News about Question #3- yet another bond promoted as being in support of Maine's economy.

Credit goes to the Bangor Daily News for still, at this date, so close to elections allowing the people's voice to be heard in the comments section, which is in stark contrast to the Maine media coverage of last years Expanded and Improved Seed Capital Tax Credit. 

The people's response in the comments section is a resounding NO! NO! NO! from the voice of the public, who is the beast of burden financing the Corporation of Maine's designs on our economy.

Nowhere in last years media coverage did I find full disclosure about what is in the "Expanded and Improved Seed Capital Tax Credit", which I researched independently by reading the statute and reported my findings in this blog post:Improved" Seed Capital Tax Credit Ramps Up Benefits For Maine's "Targeted Sector http://goo.gl/BLmk7E

I learned more when I worked for almost a month researching A Maine Citizen's Journey Through The Statute's of Transformation http://goo.gl/5cmdhZ a statutory history documenting the construction of The Maine Corporation- or the Corporation Without A Name but possessing a huge network of subsidiary corporations with names like The Maine Development Foundation, The FAME Corporation, the DECD Corporation, the MTI Corporation, The SEGF Corporation- whose name was recently changed to the MVF corporation, The Advanced Manufacturing Center at the University of Maine Corporation, The Aqua Ventus "Business Consortium" also at The University of Maine Corporation- and so on- inclusive of The Maine State Owned Liquor Business.

For instance while researching the time line, I learned that the percentage that the Maine people are required to refund to capital investors and owners of the means of production for their capital investments was upped in 2011 from 40% to 60%  When the Seed Capital tax Credit was first instituted, the amount the taxpayers were required to refund of the owners of the mean's of production was 30% and so the peoples mandated charitable donations to the owners of the means of production has doubled since the Seed Capital Tax Credit was instituted and it has increased 50% under the Lepage administration- and it can now be said that the beasts of burden in this picture- the Maine taxpayer - has to refund capitalists the lion's share of their investment, while the capitalists is allowed to retain all of his profits. This I know ONLY because I dug deeper than the information that the Maine media makes available to the public much to the benefit of the Maine Corporation.

SURPRISE ! As I write, the independent voices have suddenly returned to the #mepolitics live stream since this morning when I posted this tweet:



This is the way the stream looked at 7:43 am on 9/29/2014 and pretty much how it looked yesterday as well.



This is the way it looked a few minutes ago when I checked at 9am:



Do you see the difference?

One More Screen Shot ! I just reposted and documented this tweet, which kept going missing on #mepolitcs when I tried to post it yesterday: It did not go missing on #corporatism

Maine Tax Payers unacknowledged beast of burden in Maine Venture Fund blog by Tim Agnew

Documented!

AfterNote: There are always going to be those who tell me that I am mistaken to believe that an external entity is interfering in my social media interactions, simply because in the days of In-Q-Tel and a politicized IRS and so on, such an idea is too fantastic to accept - However shortly after posting this I became aware that others were posting on my wall for the new Facebook Page, Maine Taxpayers United For The Maine Constitution. However those posts did not post to my wall but went to my personal messages. I have checked the settings for all the Facebook pages I start and a they are set to allow others to post but consistently I am the only one who does post despite the fact that when I post in other places my posts usually engage participation from others- just not on Facebook Pages that I start, where there is no participation at all from others. Usually I do not receive messages either. If there is an external party messing with my social network interactions- the messages could have been delivered by mistake. I have not received any new messages since I posted a screen shot and explained what was occurring on said Facebook Page.

An Incomplete Theory of Inflation Made to Order for Mass Consumption.

M oney is not what it used to be, so must our ways of thinking about it adapt. jaakko-kemppainen-unsplash The message treads across the media terrain, beating louder and louder as if to drown out the beat of the distant drummer. W arning! The only thing the stimulus will stimulate is inflation. The people will pay as the wealthy elite invests their windfalls in financial assets. Doom and gloom set to march across the land to the beat of the distribution of stimulus funds.

Why are social impact investors trying so hard to defeat smaller shelters for the homeless?

  "Social Impact” developers in Portland, Maine seek to squelch a referendum for smaller shelters called for by qualified practitioners with concrete experience in the field. A large sign says Vote C to support the Homeless, small handmade sign next to it says Untrue! That sign is paid for by developers who want / Photo by Jess Falero In   the 1970s under Governor Longley , Maine became a centrally managed economy that expanded Maine’s wealth gap and merged, almost seamlessly, the public and private and the non-profit and for-profit economic sectors into one mutually beneficial wealth-concentration & distribution system. Currently, mutually benefitting factions are coming together once again in hopes of building a mega-shelter for the homeless in a Portland, Maine industrial development district. In addition to beds for the homeless, the project will include, dining, and locker facilities, as well as offices and an attached health clinic. The promotion  describes the facility

JECD Group Holds Master Plan Pow Wow for Boothbay Peninsula

The most honest statement to come out of the ringleaders of the Joint Economic Community Development Group in their first workshop program was "none of us are experts on economic development", which in my most humble opinion is evident in the fact that the JECD begins with the premise that economic development can be master minded by central management. The article in the Boothbay Register begins with this paragraph: The Joint Economic Development Committee master plan workshop on Thursday, Oct. 12 discuss findings from stakeholder interviews conducted early last month. The interviews centered around building an overall economic development strategy for Edgecomb, Boothbay, Boothbay Harbor and Southport. Who are the stakeholders?  A search for articles in the Boothbay Register comes up short. Why is the public not told who the stakeholders are. Since the taxpayers of Boothbay and Boothbay Harbor footed the bill for the JECD's consultants, why are they not the stakeh
