Goldman Sachs Is The Gift That Keeps On Giving... To The Clintons

By now we all know that Goldman Sachs is the gift that keeps on giving to the Clintons. Whether it's paying millions out for speeches, investing in family member's failing hedge fund ventures, or donating hundreds of thousands to the Clinton Foundation, Goldman seems to be keeping a close relationship with the family. But, with The Intercept dogging Hillary's every move seeking uncomfortable truths to awkward questions, perhaps the gift of Goldman is now a growing inconvenience on the campaign trail.

Your Options: To Serve... Or Be Served

Spurious promises of equal outcomes implicitly rely on begging, theft, and the coercive power of the sociopathic, psychopathic scam. There has never yet been a government in which the government, especially ones devoted to “equality,” did not become, in Orwell’s words, “more equal” than its begging and enslaved citizenry. Keep that in mind the next time you hear a blowhard bastard bloviating bromides about the beauty and nobility of “service.” You’re to be served... as the next course.

"These changes are a major policy shift that will impact Americans’ digital security, expand the government’s surveillance powers and pose serious Fourth Amendment questions. Part of the problem is the simple fact that both the American public and security experts know so little about how the government goes about hacking a computer to search it." By failing to act, Congress is once again demonstrating that it is not just useless, it’s also dangerously corrupt and incompetent.

Disillusioned Democrats & The Demise Of Democracy In America

Democracy in America, we ask: is it our destiny, or political curse, to have to choose between the lesser of two evils at election time? Why? Are we terminally incapable of acknowledging a fundamental truth: that democracy will never take hold until we change the undemocratic process that keep us in chains... and learn to govern ourselves, selflessly, for the welfare of all?
