    Our President needs to spend this last year crisscrossing the country. He is the best leader around; local coverage is much better. He inspires that is best in us.

    A cure for cancer could not come too soon! Cancer got me and two of my siblings in the span of 18 months.

      Now that’s such a nasty move that it should cost Gov Snyder his job. He should be recalled for allowing his residents to be abused like this.

    On Tuesday, insurer MetLife Inc. became the second major firm in the past 10 months to decide that the demands of being “systemically important” in the eyes of regulators may outweigh the benefits of continuing to operate at its current size. General Electric Co. made the same choice in April for its giant finance arm, GE Capital.

    The moves show that while the U.S. government hasn’t heeded populist calls to “break up” the nation’s largest financial firms, those demands are at times being answered through indirect pressure from regulators.

    The very largest U.S. banks, some of whom report earnings this week, are also facing increasing questions about whether they can remain profitable at their current size. In recent years, the Federal Reserve and other overseers have made it clear that being big will come with costs: Large U.S. banks have added $641 billion of capital since 2009 to meet tougher regulatory rules, according to the Fed.

    Those requirements make it tougher for firms to produce outsize returns.

      Several members of my OFA team and me were in that hearing room, just to the right of this photo. The sticking point was the orchardists who don’t want to pay migrant workers even the current minimum wage. This is a good plan, but the roll-out to these wage numbers is far too long.

    I saw in our news yesterday that Liberia was ebola free. The never ending fear generated by the US media is the last stand of the 4th estate. The immediate call to arms when a US boat ventures where it should not be – is another form of this disease.

    I live in a relatively fear-free part of the world. The US should be the same – but the gun lobby and the media really want to be on a war footing – internally & externally – all the time.

    I cannot imagine the world without PBO keeping the peace. I will be thankful every day that I lived in his time.

      the use of fear to gin up white votes for the GOP has been effective…fear of blk and brwn people….fear of Muslims….fear of the blk man as President who really is a usurper…FEAR of FEAR…..

      they have NOTHING to offer America….. nothing…so they use fear to control folks…

      They should be suing those individuals (in congress?) whose pockets they were lining who probably “guaranteed” that the pipeline would happen.

      TransCanada is using NAFTA — the North American Free Trade Agreement — to file its lawsuit. Instead of in a court of law, the decision about billions of dollars in taxpayer money will be made undemocratically in a private tribunal.

      Lawsuits like this prove just how dangerous global trade deals like the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Pact (TTIP) can be.

      This petition seems more like an attack on TTP…then anything else

    1. This is an achievable goal.
    2. We’re going to need waaaaaaaaay more money.
    3. Researchers have to start playing nice.
    4. We have to stop treating cancer patients differently.
    5. A singular “cure” for cancer suggests all cancer is the same. It isn’t.

    From the article that Charles links — Alan Rickman said the following in an interview about his role in Die Hard, his very first movie:

    “I didn’t know anything about LA. I didn’t know anything about the film business … I’d never made a film before, but I was extremely cheap,” he said. After reading the script, he thought: “What the hell is this? I’m not doing an action movie.”

    Rickman, who was 41 at the time, was won over by the wit of the script and the progressive storyline, which still stands out from other action films. “Every single black character in that film is positive and highly intelligent,” he said. “So, 28 years ago, that’s quite revolutionary, and quietly so.”

    Late to the party! I did want to pass along a funny one-liner out of a CNN right wing pundit earlier. While speaking about Cruz, she asked, “How do they say ‘flip-flop’ in Canada?”

    Of course, they’re ALL a joke – a bad joke – to me.

    Gabrielle Union was in “Something the Lord Made” with Alan Rickman and Mos Def (now Yasiin Bey). Found this on her Twitter Feed.
