Why did the Obama Administration ask for a longer prison sentence for Gov. Don Siegelman?

Andrew Krieg, who writes at, reports that the Supreme Court denied former-Alabama Governor Don Siegelman's appeal.

Screwed: The tobacco industry and the Tea Party - and the Tea Party and Cancer Treatment Centers of America

I wish Thom would cover these relationships btw Big Tobacco, Cancer, Tea Party. It is so horrible to think that these people are conspiring to make us sick and to keep us sick, just to make a profit.

That kind of style takes brains.

So they can steal my skull and grind my bones, but without the blood and neural net, what do they have-

Your reply is welcome

Surpose your on a plane and someone had a knife that the TSA has approved to have on the plane that as a carry on; and That someone uses it and ends up hurting you. Do you have the ability to sue the TSA or the Government because they allow knifes on that plane or will Obama ask everyone to resister their home and personal knifes too?

Thom: At the same time last Monday (3-4), that you was lauding the Swiss Government for their move to RESTRICT Largess through shareholder votes, Maria Bartiromo on CNBC was condemning said same for their intrusion in the free market of Switzerland. She spoke out as if those poor Olligarchs had been disinfranchised by the Swiss Govermnet. In reality, she was perfunctorily ;reading the prompter which told her what to say.
