A federal judge on Thursday declined to toss out decade-old lawsuits that accuse IBM Corp. and Ford Motor Co. of supporting apartheid by letting their subsidiaries sell computers and cars to the South African government.
The three lawsuits seek to hold IBM and Ford responsible for race-based injustices including rape, torture and murder under apartheid, a system of race-based segregation and discrimination against nonwhites that ended 20 years ago.

Rush will be whining about that.
one judge can make many absurd rulings that fail to stand up, and this renegade Clinton appointee has an interesting history.......

So, is this Mitt's plane? Enquiring minds want to know. Hey, Flack? get on the case and tell us whose plane this is.

Owning the plane through a trust allows the owner privacy. A bank employee said that the bank has no operation control or financial exposure to the planes. They're owners by proxy.

There is one slight clue though. The jet was spotted in Zurich, Switzerland on January 22, 2014, right around the time of the World Economic Forum in Davos. That probably narrows the list down to 2,633 powerful people.

The plane was also in Accra, Ghana on January 3 and in Luton, England on October 1 of last year and February 16 of this year.

"Every time the President ignores the law, like the 38 times he has on Obamacare, our members look up and go,'Wait a minute: You can't have immigration reform without strong border security and internal enforcement. How can we trust the President to actually obey the law and enforce the law that we would write?'"
lol! You know? It's unfortunate you can't prove your claim.

That would have made you somewhat truthful!

The plot thickens!! Maybe it was Mitt Romney, or Dick Cheney. Maybe it's money laundering; or arms deals. Interesting!

Here is what every American should be deeply concerned about. The Koch brothers, through the expenditure of billions of dollars and the creation and support of dozens of extreme right organizations, have taken fringe extremist ideas and made them mainstream within the Republican Party. And now with Citizens United (which is allowing them to pour unlimited sums of money into the political process) their power is greater than ever.
And let's be very clear. Their goal is not only to defund Obamacare, cut Social Security, oppose an increase in the minimum wage or cut federal funding for education. Their world view and eventual goal is much greater than all of that. They want to repeal every major piece of legislation that has been signed into law over the past 80 years that has protected the middle class, the elderly, the children, the sick and the most vulnerable in this country. Every piece of legislation!
The truth is that the agenda of the Koch brothers is to move this country from a democratic society with a strong middle class to an oligarchic form of society in which the economic and political life of the nation are controlled by a handful of billionaire families.
Our great nation must not be hijacked by right-wing billionaires like the Koch brothers.

wow! that's a tad bit off the scale, don't you think? repeal all legislation that helps provide an educated, willing workforce for those supposedly evil corporations?

doesn't even make sense...

again, money in elections is not the problem. an uneducated, complacent electorate that votes on TV commercials is the problem. all the money in the world makes no difference to the informed, involved voter...
