It's been a long time since the USA has produced the type of people willing to fight against corrupt government.

That's...ominous.

This disconnect between us and the government and their cozy whatever they have going on with big businesses and wall street is scary. It's not like anyone doesn't realize why something like this is getting passed; said big businesses that are cozy with the gov and politicians want it, so it gets passed. Screw what's best for us.

Not like we'd stop em' anyways. These days the majority of people are either too apathetic or too uneducated to even make a difference. I certainly can't condemn them though, as I do far less than I could or should as well.

The problem is that 'they' have taken advantage of that apathy to slowly widen the gap to the point in which we basically have a ruling class, and a commoner class again. Politicians, 'big players' in business, wall street execs, 'the 1%'; they're the ruling class. We're the commoners.

If the rift keeps widening eventually it's all going to come to a head, and judging by said apathy I d

I counted and Bill Black blinked 32 times in 17 seconds. That freaked me out.

Well jops, make sure that you voice is heard when we need more investigators and police after the crimes have been committed.

sorry but you cannot cite Wikipedia. also there will always be fraudulent filings, and anything that can help small businesses should not be stopped because of something that already happens. now if there is an increase, guess what, thats why we have investigators and the police.
to me this is the same as asking for voter id laws.

The idea for easier filings is great but this bill is not and will increase fraudulent filings. Watch the rest.

I could only watch half of this video, but I totally DISAGREE with them. The smaller companies need to be able to get funding easier. The SEC filing is ridiculously expensive and time consuming.

-- Got cut off--

We must plan ahead for our future with truthful information, if we follow our corrupt leaders we will be racing each other to the bottom!

Btw, I always considered The Real News left leaning, i.e. Real.

Jops - This link breaks down their setup

Here's their current list of board of directors
There's more info on their site under about us.
Again, this is a non commercial news org and according to wikipedia editors, they are a reliable source

Corruption is the biggest problem the United States and the world have, as citizens of our respective countries we should be made aware of corrupt policies before it affects our lives. We must plan ahead for our future with truthful information, if we follow our corrupt leaders we will be racing each oth

so where do they get a majority of their money from? just more of the same right wing terror news. why does everything need to end up being the decline of the US or the death of America? another place making their money scaring the crap out of the old and the dumb. this my friend is hurting America more than the jobs act.

Just want to point out that The Real News is a member funded news organization and does not accept corporate funding, even PBS accepts corporate funding.

Donate if you like news from experts in their field that you will not hear or see on television. Let's just say it straight up, the presenters may not be photogenic but their information is legit and truthful. Sadly, a few of the journalists interviewed by the real news have been murdered within their respective countries for speaking their minds.

Note: I am a member and I donate to the real news.

It is a race to the bottom, or free-fall, but not for the reasons they say.

When the first words of video are Donate Today before the cause, then I'm already skeptical.
