The US war of terror. Its crimes hidden, its criminals unpunished.
 
None of the allegations against Abu Zubaydeh turned out to be true. That didn’t stop the CIA from torturing him for years.

The company has cultivated ties to the U.S. government by lobbying and sharing its digital expertise, raising questions about undue influence.

Another item to remember when the inevitable exaltations of Obama roll in in January.
A provision jammed into the 2014 "CRomnibus" could result in the first cuts in earned pension benefits to current retirees in over 40 years.

It is important to remember that in her crimes as Secretary of State, Clinton was the junior partner. Part of supporting Sanders is recognizing who Obama is and what his administration stands for.

This is not just Bush's crimes. The Obama administration not just refused to prosecute the guilty (Bush and the torturers), but also continued to persecute the innocent (Bush's torture victims).

This is how you create a terrorist. Truth be told, America is getting what it deserves. You can't murder thousands and not expect that a few will seek revenge.

I can't imagine a soul that would not seek revenge after being tortured.

The FBI: keeping us safe from the threat of FBI-generated terror plots.
After one woman broke his heart, a young Michigan man turned to another woman, who tried to steer him toward a violent response. Both women were FBI informants.

When it comes to the corrupt teamster, anyone with a brain knew they were corrupt and have been stealing pension money for years, so basically you get what you went along with. They didn't cut my pension, they stole the whole thing.

+Steve Selkirk I agree that the government should not support things that are to the detriment of average citizens. I believe  Sanders would agree as well.

Obama is just another corporate servant like Clinton and the Republicans, so there is no comparison between him and Sanders.

Regarding immigrants: I believe that the evidence is that they are a force for good. As you must know, the US was built by immigrants throughout its history. I don't see why things should be different now. I do think that labor relations should be set so that the influx of immigrants doesn't result in lower wages. This can be arranged by strengthening unions, labor laws and providing universally guaranteed services such as healthcare and education.

I am a statistician and software engineer, living in Israel.

My interests include politics (theory and practice) and statistics (theory and practice).

Within politics, I am focused on issues revolving around elitism, political equality, and the application of chance in order to achieve political equality. I am an editor and a contributor to a group blog, Equality by Lot, which deals with the use of chance in governance and resource distribution.
