Did Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley’s shenanigans with FaceBook IPO hurt capital formation in the US?

Yea it did! You’d have to be nuts to be a foreign investor investing in American Financial Markets!

obamacare

I am becoming exasperated from hearing the nonsensical Republican talking point that "Obamacare is a burden to small business", when it is employee healthcare costs, in general, that the Affordable Care Act addresses by increasing the pool (which reduces cost and covers 40 million more citizens) and reducing the deficit (remember that problem) over the next decade. I anticipate some push back will be forthcoming, if honesty prevails.

5 pointed star

Tom are you aware that (check the facts, everyone of the occult nature knows this...) the 5 pointed star 'upside down' STANDS for...Satan, the reversed pentagram...how can you, and the media 'NOT' pick up on this, "Smoking GUN"...it was on the GOP elephant yesterday...3 of them, how can you fight back, when you don't know the Icons, and the meaning behind them???....it sends a message! very...very, very ugly!

Barack Obama surrendered his Law license in 2008 to escape charges he lied on his bar application

Barack Obama allegedly surrendered his Law license in 2008 to escape charges he lied on his bar application -- and Michelle Obama "voluntarily surrendered" her law license in 1993 after a Federal Judge gave her the choice between surrendering her license or standing trial for Insurance fraud! MORE

Re: Sen. Sanders' amendment concerning accurate food labeling: Where were all the States' RIghters?

Some amendments make too much sense. Small wonder BIG AGGIE was dead-set against Bernie Sanders' amendment. Good heavens, truth in food labeling. Can't we just hear it; Fox News' post-mortem: "Here's another idea pushed by "socialist" interventionist idea from that radical Vermont Socialist, Bernie Sanders." (You know they'll have to include the "S" word...just to keep the story "fair n' balanced.") The amendment called for giving states more permission to eneact greater truth in food labeling laws concerning genetically altered food.)

HOW DO YOU DO IT?

Thom, you are the most knowledgeable person I know of. Every single day you are reporting, speaking, and writing about the issues that confront America and the world. How do you do it? How do you live with all that sorrow and horror and atrocity and injustice day in and day out without burning out? As a therapist, I had to learn how to create some emotional distance in order to be helpful, but I also saw many of my colleagues who became bitter and hardened. How do you protect yourself from that?

AN ELECTION THAT THE REPUBLICANS NEEDED TO LOSE – GOOD LUCK OBAMA

In the earlier part of today's show, Thom was talking about the economy being used as a tool against the President and the Democratic Party in general. Republicans will deny this. But here is proof RIGHT FROM A KEY REPUBLICAN MOUTHPIECE:

The Democrats who control the State Assembly, many of them black or Latino residents of New York City, saw a proposal to decriminalize the open possession of small amounts of marijuana as a simple matter of justice: too many black and Latino men were...

Congressman to DEA Head: "Does Meth and Heroin Cause More Deaths Than Marijuana?"

Stephanie Miller is Right, It's "Retarded" to Worry About Having Drones Flying Over America! It's Not Like They're Armed...For Now-

Support "your President", morons! It's not your business how "we" operate the government- It's National Security stupid! Do you want the Drug Lords to hold back their laundered money from the banks again? Like they did in 2007, and almost gave Henry a heart attack! You go Paulson Timbers!!!

Mitt Romney claims American Citizenship has to be "MORE ATTRACTIVE" to ILLEGALS

Despite the fact that people are ivading our country and stealing all the Landscaping and Migrant labor jobs from the last bunch of criminals that were deported or died or went into housekeeping. Mitt Romney wants to make them COZY while they wait in line. What? Willard, you gonna give em foot massages and Tacos?

crazy

Who exactly is contemptuous? Contemptuous of the laws whose letter binds the attorney, or of the officer who recites them? I doubt that all procedural avenues to broader discovery were so so awfully exhausted and reasonable negotiation so frozen by Mr. Holders somehow evident disrespect/disdain for Congressional oversight (how many times has he testified, how many documents provided?). Nevertheless, rather than solving the problem, it seems obvious to me that the baseless suspicions of Mr.

A NEW ONE

Yesterday show, the relationship between Republican and Democrat.

The the Republican party led by an activist Supreme Court has lowered the civility and decency standards in America. Back to the old West you say? Why? This is all about short-term profit! It has nothing to do with improving society or the economy. It has everything to do with putting off tomorrow, what we should do today. This citizen of these United States looks at the lack of cooperation and decency, that is perpetrated on America by right-wing activists. The question in my mind is how do we pull this together?How do the we stop ourselves from falling into a pit of extremist disparity.

Why Chelsea Manning Is Going Free


In his eight years in office President Obama has waged a devastating war on whistleblowers, prosecuting more people under the Espionage Act than every single president - combined.

But that war on whistleblowers took a possible step towards armistice today when the President commuted the prison sentence of former US Army private Chelsea Manning.
