Jack Hansen's insight:

How about arresting someone for being (not seeming) prejudiced against anyone!  Doesn't happen.  Islamophobia is not real but Progressives sympathetic toward radical Muslims are bent on making their own fabricated term into some authentic law to intimidate citizens.  I hope John Gilmore wins his case.

Two Senators Try to Slam the Door on Bank Bailouts

Two Senators Try to Slam the Door on Bank Bailouts | Restore America | Scoop.it
Two senators know they’ll have to fight big banks to achieve passage of a bill to protect taxpayers from future bailouts.

Greg Russak's curator insight, April 28, 2013 10:34 AM

"A little over a month ago, the Senate held a nonbinding vote on the problems posed by megabanks. Its members voted 99 to 0 to “to end ‘too big to fail’ subsidies or funding advantage for Wall Street megabanks.”

Brown-Vitter would achieve those goals while also protecting taxpayers. As such, it will be interesting to see which senators retreat from their earlier positions by refusing to support the bill. Constituents on the alert for hypocrisy, take note." - Gretchen Morgenson, NY Times

 

For a different take on Brown-Vitter there's this: 

 

"Even so, the bill will of course face enormous resistance, and not just from the bank lobbyists who seem reflexively to oppose any measure to overhaul their industry. There are analysts who want to do more to rein in the banks, but who think the senators are naïve, or intellectually lacking, to think that today’s complex financial system can be made safer with their seemingly simple fixes. They have a point." - Peter Eavis, NY Times DealBook

See: http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2013/04/26/the-seductive-simplicity-of-a-new-banking-bill/

 

I tend to think it's time to give the "naive" approach a try. The banking industry has proven that they cannot self-regulate and they cannot be trusted. Ratings agencies may as well be on banking payrolls. The status quo is what got us into the mess, and from what I've read about Basel III and even Dodd-Frank, they still feel a little too much like having the foxes guarding us ordinary citizens trapped in our financial henhouses.

Eric Holder Threatens Kansas in Letter on Gun Control Nullification Law

Eric Holder Threatens Kansas in Letter on Gun Control Nullification Law | Restore America | Scoop.it
US Attorney General Holder has threatened action against Kansas SB102, stating in conflicts with federal law under the supremacy clause in regards to firearms.
Jack Hansen's insight:

Nullification, Eric, means you are not above the law of the land, the US Constitution.  Your threats are commonplace against America and your assistance to radical Islam is notorious accented by your stonewalling and silence when your actions benefit America's enemies and no one else.  What does this make you?  You look at Oath Keepers as radical extremists.  I think you have your loyalties mixed up.  It's time for you to get out of Dodge (DOJ).
