4 Reasons Obama's New Dark-Money Rules Won't Stop Dark Money - 0 views

  •  
    Great article. The amount of $$$ spent to get our politicians into office is spiraling out of control. SuperPACs and "dark money" sources make it impossible to see who the candidates are getting financial support from.

    US President Barack Obama Only days after clearing Congress, US President Barack Obama signed his name to H.R. 347 on Thursday, officially making it a federal offense to cause a disturbance at certain political events - essentially criminalizing protest in the States.

  •  
    The referendum, which is called the "1:12 initiative" and began after supporters gathered 100,000 signatures to put it on the ballot, is the kind of elegant solution to income inequality that we in the United States should consider more seriously.

UNO study: Immigrant workers boost local economy - 0 views

  •  
    Pretty interesting study. Sometimes I will hear people claim immigrants are "a drain on the economy' This research says quite the opposite (at least for CB and Omaha).
  •  
    Crazy that people who actually work help the economy when they spend their money locally. Oh wait no its not.

What will happen if the US goes over the fiscal cliff? - 0 views

    scary stuff

  •  
    Really is a scary thought, and it's sad that no steps have been taken to prevent it. We've had years, but this administration has been pretty focused on its own agenda...
  •  
    This is really going to effect our generation!
  •  
    This is a very serious matter and it will affect every american in the United States.If there is going to be tax cuts on all departments will jobs be lost. If our economy goes into a recession how will our economy come back from that? No one knows if this will benefit or hurt. This is why this is so difficult too think about.
  •  
    Well its a sad that the government just blows this problem over there shoulders with no care in the world, and we the people take the bullet for it.
  •  
    It's also sad that during this current Congress they voted to repeal the ACA thirty sometimes other then work on this issue. I think that many people forget that the Obama Administration has presented a jobs plan and the House rejected it just as the Senate/President have rejected job plans brought up by the House. This is the exact reason that we're even in this mess. A lack of compromise on all sides.

  •  
    This article explains a lot, and points out flaws in Romney's plans.
  •  
    I love this article. It points out exactly what I've been trying to tell people. Romney never fully answers the question. He has good ideas but never can tell us what will happen and how he will actually do it!
  •  
    Mitt Romney is so vague he never does answer directly answer the questions. I agree with Rainie it bluntly shows that
