    when cheap drugs start to become expensive, and there aren’t really any alternatives
    maybe its the profit motive that keeps the cost of health care growing? it certainly not controlling the cost for ‘customers’

    what could go wrong with government and corporate spying and intrusion into the internet?
    could be the public decides its untrusted and either bails on it, or treats as being optional. and a very dangerous place to be

    We live in an age where power means empty apologies with little investigation and punishment. both the church sex abuse scandal and the financial crisis fall in these categories. So instead of a Pecora Commission and Glass-Steagal Act, we get in-house reports with Dodd-Frank bills that the power players then try to defang.

    I think people are disengaged and depressed because of the stonewalling. However, periods like this often end with upheaval and major shifts in power. This can happen in the Catholic Church as well as in governments.

    Best explanation of a stock market move ever.

    Apparently the stock market had a severe pullback today because investors were concerned the market would have a severe pullback.

    Concern Over ‘Severe’ Pullback Sends U.S. Stocks Lower

    “..Many investors wonder if the ride is over,” Tobias Levkovich, chief U.S. equity strategist at Citigroup Inc., said in a report today. “As stock indices hit new highs, there are those that fear further gains, given defensive positioning, but more worry about buying in now just in time for a severe pullback….”

    When is it ever anything else?

    The Sloan term is great. CNBC, Fox, WSJ all the media should referred to these companies as “deserters.”

    You leave America, who polices the world for you, who created you, you are a deserter! And everyone who works there.

    more MERS. another loss.

    but now maybe Congress will under cover of darkness fix the mess.

    or make it worse by allowing MERS to continue to operate and even over ride state laws

    and i thought there was one party (currently in charge in the house) that was all for states rights. but of course that only applies when its not their idea to make it federal
