The New Terrorists: Wall Street Bankers

America is confronted by a new and cryptic type of terrorists who are destroying America and castrating our system of government and extorting the American tax-payer to hand over incredible wealth. These are not entrepreneurs, these are not even decent businesspeople: they are terrorists who deserve to be grabbed up off the street and sent to Guantanamo.

CHRY$LER: symbol of what is wrong in American business

Enough is enough!

Chrysler is the epitome of greed prevalent in the corporate sector and it should be recognized as the symbol for much our economic woes.

The auto company received $4 BILLION in government loans from U.S. taxpayers in a bail-out provision, but that’s still not enough for Chrysler CEO Robert Nardelli, who continues to hold his palm up to Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner requesting more money “to save” Chrysler from going under.

While Cheney came across on CNN as embittered, trying to rewrite history despite his role as a co-president who believed the world was ready to change according to his specifications, the question is valid.

Are we less safe?

According to "Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency," by Barton Gellman, whose reporting won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize, Cheney spent eight years working behind the scenes to increase the power of the president. He is clearly angry that President Obama is trying, he thinks, to expand the power of the federal government instead.

Bad blood boils between FBI, Muslim groups

Bad blood between the FBI and prominent U.S. Muslim groups is beginning to boil.

After 9/11, the FBI launched a coast-to-coast effort to reach out to Muslims in America, urging them to report anti-Muslim acts against them and vowing to investigate any that occurred. The bureau also called on Muslim Americans to apply to be agents and translators, and encouraged them to report suspicious activity.
