Corruption USA

The U.S. is number 19 on Transparency International's global scale.  Prof. Juan Cole discusses the hidden side of corruption in the USA -- http://www.commondreams.org/view/2013/12/03-2  A perspective missing from our news media.

Nabby, I am surprised that we are not number 1, with all the corruption going on in Obama's administration, and his lack of transparency promised during campaigns? Are you kidding? The fiasco with Obamacare is just beginning, now it is individuals, next is companies with 80 million instead of 7 million being cancelled. The corruption of 500,000 million spent for a garbage site, with no one held accountable, is obvious. Who's pockets were lined? Multiple trillions spent, and Obama has nothing to show for it. You are right Nabby, lots of corruption out there....

I hope you actually read the piece by Prof. Cole. The issue is far, far bigger than Obama; it includes the entire system: private prisons, bloated military, endless war, corporate welfare, the surveillance state, on and on. Please don't narrow it down to Obama and his Republican-designed give away to the health insurance/care industry. Both parties are equally partners in this debacle.

Nabby, Unfortunately, Obama is in charge, and the corruption is his responsibility to contain, at least for the next 3 years since he has the power to do something about it, or not, his call.
