''Warren Report Criticizes Obama Administration's Failure to Prosecute Corporate Crimes'' ... ..

''Controversy erupted after the recent Democratic presidential debate when Hillary Clinton accused Bernie Sanders of criticizing President Obama. However, Sanders is hardly the only prominent Democrat to have recently questioned some of the president's actions. In January, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) released a 12-page booklet titled "Rigged Justice," (see below) which highlights 20 cases of lax corporate law enforcement in 2015, saying:

''The Obama Administration has made repeated promises to strengthen enforcement and hold corporate criminals accountable, and the DOJ [US Department of Justice] announced in September that it would place greater emphasis on charging individuals responsible for corporate crimes. Nonetheless, both before and after this DOJ announcement, accountability for corporate crimes is shockingly weak.''

''Regardless of the outcome of the 2016 election, Warren's report, the first in what is promised to be an annual series on corporate law enforcement, underscores the notion that beyond policy and legislation proposals, enforcement of current law by the president is important to public well-being. With Warren unafraid to call the Obama administration's oversight on corporate crime "shockingly weak," his successor will undoubtedly get as much scrutiny.''

I guess you would rather co-opt OWS than to start an anti-air strike movement, the time is now we can change everything if only we choose to. (and before you go there I know you can't support Bernie because he supports some of the air strikes and it would dirty your hands and better the whole world should burn to the ground than your hands get dirty)

I do see how easy it is for you to just let the 1% run everything, bomb who they want and take it all, it is very easy for you.

just as all politicians are the government is beholden to run off the money they let use "tax" from the "private" holdings
