sheldon adelson justice department prostitution google those words and you will see the shamelessness the the right wing in America. They are demanding that Adelson not be investigated because he is a donor to the Republican Party. This logic would have had Al Capone and Bugsy Siegel immune from prosecution and police scrutiny. They'd just have had to pay off the Republican Party. The investigation, (and I hope it has teeth and is not backed away from by the DOJ and SEC under this intense fire) has plenty of basis to exist. Just peruse this blogsite and you'll see.

I notice that the Press was barred from Romney's fundraiser in Israel and Ryan's in Vegas. Easy to understand. They don't want any news fotogs catching them with Adelson. Never can tell what that would bring....

did you see Rachel Maddows piece on him?

That of July 17, yes. I'm hoping she's not done with him.

no wonder the Rs are attacking AG Holder
its not Obama that thay dont want
its Holder

There's some truth in what you say. Adelson would prefer a brand new Justice Department in January, especially if he cannot intimidate and cower Holder and Obama.

pretty sure Holder is under attack for failed gun running policies that got people murdered.

of course there is more to the puzzle than Holder... but that has a lot to do with it.

What do people have to do to get fired nowadays?

also google everyone that accepts money from

Goldman Sachs

Bank of America

Citi Group

Wells Fargo

JP Morgan

Barclays

You'd be disgusted to see how many people are on that list

anyone this crook supports - we should vote the other way

That's pretty much my point in voting for Obama- with Wall Street, the Koch brothers, Sheldohn Adelson, the racist Mormon church and the tea party all on one side it really is a no brainer.

Yep It is messed up, and we know it.

We still have hope: a reasonable alternative to the crazy system (our last 12 years) Rocky Anderson is on ballot in many states, and he praised Ows as idealistic courageous and convergent with his positions (4th LINK) His strategy is through social media, as the egyptian s did, wants a revo. Against duopoly. If we met up in public forums, parks, and championed his candidacy, that's freedom of speech. How could that be shut down. And everyone emailed, wrote everyone they know, everyone in the phone book, but keep it optimistic, have kids there, etc pro family and worker.

It was cool to the public when you occupied. Real not staged. For those who know in their soul the system has deep problems, it was inspiring.

Can WE occupy central park(s) and spread the message there, even if it is daily. It was cool you were out in public standing up.

It's just whole country feels conservative, cause cons keep repeative Obama is communist.

OWS was so fast, and not well covered in main media, for most part. I think it was raising awareness, especially when the police got out of line, but now it is easy for public to ignore, and for many they may believe it has faded away:((
