Strong financial reform is needed as never before. Left unregulated, too many financial institutions and wealthy corporations have become irresponsible and arrogantly self-serving. The result has been an economic disaster for the country, but a boon for those whose reckless management mimics that of self-centered individuals too engrossed in themselves to be aware of other peoples’ rights. The time has come to demonstrate a maturity that takes into consideration the common good.
“Manslaughter,” reads the United States Code, “is the unlawful killing of a human being without malice.” It goes on, “Whoever is guilty of involuntary manslaughter, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six years, or both.” In the disasters at the Massey coal mine in West Virginia and on the BP oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico, people were killed. Twenty-nine miners died in the Upper Big Branch mine explosion. Eleven workers died on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, which is owned by Transocean, working under contract for BP. There are state laws that govern manslaughter as well, and special language given for maritime deaths. So why aren’t the executives from these companies behind bars?
Thanks in part to the Supreme Court and our diligent friends at Citizens United, the United States has now moved a step closer to formally adopting a “one-dollar, one vote” political system. I’ve long used the phrase satirically to describe the malign influence of tycoon-funded Washington propaganda shops like Citizens United upon our democracy. In the wake of last week’s Supreme Court ruling awarding corporations precisely the same First Amendment rights as individual U.S. citizens, it’s not so funny anymore.

Any scheme that can be used to bilk millions of Americans out of all they have worked for seems to be forced down our throats and we are expected to accept it without question. Adding to the dilemma are unscrupulous lawyers and judges who have been given excessive power and control by our own government!
