The government has no business owning (or administering) all of this land. I am willing to concede courthouses and even national parks to the feds, but why is practically all of the far West run by the Federal Government?
Who actually owns the land on which the Bundy cattle ranged? Does the Bureau of Land Management? Does the federal government? Does the “public”? Do the Bundys who have worked the land for over a century?
This is not about a rancher owing the Bureau of Land Management money. This is about a federal government which just assumed control of public land years ago (not government land like military bases or federal courthouses – though the taxpayers do pay for these too) changing the rules and telling citizens to lump it.
Because the hedge funds believe Goolsbee offers “insight” into economic moves coming from the White House.
There is a culture of privilege which runs deep through our government. And its nothing new, though it does seem to have been taken up a notch with this administration.
The Suburban financed with a home equity loan, Home equity loans, CEO of Countrywide Joseph Mozillo’s tan, Lehman Brothers...
This is unsustainable. (But don’t tell Paul Krugman this.)
Oh, and Jeb is a key guy behind Common Core.
But Oregonians did get this really cool promotional video for Obamacare.
It is probably safe to say that government workers are nowhere near as efficient as private sector workers.
Those Chevy plants are full of UAW workers who hold a lot of political sway. It’s why their pensions were bailed out by the taxpayers back in 2009. Many people think the GM implosion just came out of nowhere. Well... It didn’t.
In a big to do with many of the Spanish speaking TV networks the president explained to a crowd that illegal immigrants do not need to worry about being deported if they sign up for Obamacare.
Seriously, friends. Tell me how having either family running the show is good for America.
The big banks dump piles and piles of money into the coffers of members of Congress on both sides of the aisle.
Well folks the world is about to get it, and it won’t be coming in the form of on-high decrees from the president and his cronies.
The only reason the Democrats and the Republicans continue to spend money like they have is because the cost of US debt is near 0%. When interest rates rise...
We have noted many times the very close relationship between the current White House and the #oldmedia. The mainstream news outlets (really less and less mainstream with each passing day) have been stalwart allies of this president and have been generally positively disposed toward this president (and candidate) from the get go.
Some people continue to believe that if only we could get “good” people in government, things would be great. It’s not the size of government they argue. It’s the nature of government. If only we could get the corporate money out of politics (rarely is the same said of unions) things would work for “the people.”
Don’t forget, Obama’s biggest contributor in 2008, even more than Goldman Sachs, was the California University system.
Again we ask, “Who would in their right mind loans an 18 year old, who has likely never had a real job, has likely never paid rent, and has likely never paid for a car, $50,000?” No one of course, except the federal government.
