Public Morality with Robert Reich
The push to legislate "morality" goes on, and on. But should it? Republican legislators have hammered away at trying to take down Roe v. Wade at the state level. Why is the "morality brigade" so concerned with fetuses, but so quick to cut benefits to children from low income families? Can that behavior really be considered "morality?"
On that matter, is there any argument against same-sex marriage that isn't "morality" based?
Why are corporations given rights that trump those of ordinary people? What about the sweeping Wall Street greed that is decimating our country's economy? Could it be...that this about who has the money and who's working for them? Why isn't the morality brigade fighting that battle? Robert Reich explains the troubling situation.

1. The morality brigade is playing Americans, to divide us for their masters.
What they are doing to the poor in sall stages of their lives and against life on planet Earth is against any religion save that of the fanatical Ayn Rand zealots. Their god is money and power, they have no use for any lives but theirs.

3. He ran for governor of Massachusetts in 2002
Narrowly lost the nomination to Shannon O'Brien. Too bad, I'm quite sure he'd have defeated Romney.
As far as President? Sadly, he's too short. That's just the way it is in this country.
