Any state legislation will be trumped by the Citizen's United decision. I am afraid the days of "we the people" are gone for good. Nothing can change until the citizens united decision is overturned more »

For the last five years nobody has spent a dime going after the banksters on wall street that caused a global economic collapse. The state of Massachusetts dropped $46 million for a system that went more »

Thank you for the reply. I am familiar with Austrian economics too. What you are making a reference to would be a "free" market. What we have here is not artificial inlfation but rather deliberate more »

It's no mystery. It's deliberate. Corporations could pay higher wages to those still working. Those higher wages would make an increase in consumption possible. An increase in consumption would st more »

Initially I thought he spoke at Kent State. Wouldn't that be ironic. "Trust me, I'm from the government".

Better yet how about the carnage from drone strikes in Pakistan?

Did someone mention Stockman's most recent columns on this subject? Nah, didn't think so...

Just don't bring up corporate welfare. They are, after all, the job creators.

Thank you for the update on our bright future here in the US. That Visa Reform bill, much like the one introduced in 2009 (S.887) and another in 2010 (H.R.5397) will accomplish nothing. If you have more »

Welcome to the twenty first century. That's the way it is and that's the way it is going to stay. The genie is out of the bottle. No corporation is going to be able to hire Americans and pay them e more »

There's a whole lot of blame the victim going on around this topic. The special interests want us to believe the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) lead to the collapse. Just like anything else, what more »

I am not sure how unions became part of the discussion but since you brought it up that's something else that can not change until CU is overturned. The loyal party members have been led to think uni more »

I find it encouraging at least some readers realize this for what it is. Nothing can change until Citizens United is overturned. That will take nothing less than a demand for an article five constit more »

It's unlikely many of these folks ever hear of Butler or the McCormack-Dickstein committee. I'm thinking it's about time the US marines get in there and liberate those oppressed oil fields. That or more »

There's a thread that has been going on about a week now attached to the original news story. In a few words, unrestrained capitalism is causing more damage than doing any good. http://www.boston.co more »
