Mitt Romney, casino capitalist

Mitt Romney, casino capitalist

          Mitt Romney and the New Gilded Age By Robert B. Reich The election of 2012 raises two perplexing questions. The first is how the GOP could put up someone for president who so brazenly epitomizes the excesses of casino capitalism that have nearly destroyed the economy and overwhelmed our democracy.

Living under the gun: Bill Moyers

            Living Under the Gun
 At least 12 are dead in Aurora, Colorado, gunned down by a mad man at a showing of the new Batman movie filled with make-believe violence.

  See, it wasn’t just Jesus’ birth, death, and resurrection that matter. It was his life too! The life he lived is a huge part of the deal, and he asked us to do a few things if you look at his words. Not only is what Jesus said the Word of God, but what Jesus DID is also the Word of God.

Buying the presidency

Buying the presidency

Right-Wing Billionaires Behind Mitt Romney They're trying to buy a presidency - and they expect a big payoff on their investment By  Tim Dickinson Presidential politics has always been a rich man's game. But now, thanks to the Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United that upended decades of limits on campaign donations, financing a presidential race is the exclusive domain of the kind of megadonor whose portfolios make Mitt Romney look middle-class. "I have lots of money, and can ... Full Story
