On the Senate that was supposed to be grilling Dimon being his lapdogs instead. And here explains how Dimon stacked the deck. No one’s saying he isn’t brilliant, just evil.

Good fucking news for once from the Obama camp–he is actually instituting the DREAM Act (more or less). 

WalMart found spying on employees who want to join a union.

You’d think this story would be in PA or something: Queens boy writes report on marriage equality, which gets banned by principal.

How cracking down on prison rape would save the U.S. $50 billion a year. I’m sure the FPP lobby is pushing against it–after all, it’s not their bodies at risk.

U.S. government is reading our emails, texts, etc with no warrant. Hope you don’t mind them seeing those nude photos you sent!

So fucked up. “A judge has dismissed a lawsuit against U.S. officials by Guatemalans who had been subjected to sexually transmitted diseases by U.S. researchers in the 1940s.” Why? “But he ruled that federal law bars claims against the U.S. based on injuries suffered in a foreign country and granted a motion by the U.S. government to dismiss the suit.” So, we can go wherever we want, do whatever we want, and make up a law making us immune. Awesome.
