... I don’t want this to go down the memory hole. I want us to reckon with the fact that this massive fraud took place and we didn’t do anything about it. We have to figure why there is this skewed system of justice in this country, where who you are matters more than what you did ...
... This was one of the biggest mistakes of this administration. I don’t think we can write the legacy of the Obama administration without including that when they had the chance to really strike a blow for Main Street they did not take the opportunity. That was disastrous for the rule of law in this country, and it seeds a lot of the anxiety we see playing out in our politics in this election cycle ...

The problem is not socialized medicine; it's capitalized medicine (private enrichment at public expense): "The incentive is to price it as high as they can," said Jim Yocum, senior vice president of Connecture, Inc., a company that tracks drug prices.

"Brexit — despite all of the harm it is likely to cause and despite all of the malicious politicians it will empower — could have been a positive development. But that would require that elites (and their media outlets) react to the shock of this repudiation by spending some time reflecting on their own flaws, analyzing what they have done to contribute to such mass outrage and deprivation, in order to engage in course correction"
Elite media scorn for anti-establishment movements only vindicates their animating drives.

(Privatization FAIL) Justice Department Ending Private Prisons: “They simply do not provide the same level of correctional services, programs, and resources; they do not save substantially on costs; and as noted in a recent report by the Department’s Office of Inspector General, they do not maintain the same level of safety and security,” Yates wrote.
The deputy attorney general says private prisons are less safe and effective.

Sitting on a sofa on a Sunday afternoon.
Going to the candidates' debate.
Laugh about it, shout about it
When you've got to choose
Every way you look at this you lose.

Re-shooting the Messenger, or Black Swans and Straws in the Wind: "Rajan has been on leave as as professor of finance at the University of Chicago since becoming head of the Indian central bank. In 2005, he had correctly predicted the impending 2008 recession, the worst financial crisis since the 1930s Great Depression"
In a surprise move, Raghuram Rajan has decided to step down once his three-year term ends in September, becoming the first RBI governor since 1992 to do so.
