I say it is high time (pun intended) to legalize weed and to end the ridiculous war on drugs. Treat drug addiction as a medical issue, not a criminal issue. The reason the U.S. has the largest criminal population in the world is because most guys locked up are there for simple drug possession…not murder, […]

Where can I find court cases about careless and sloppy shareholder record keeping by large corporations?

Specifically, around 1999 the large publicly traded companies were changing to computerized record keeping.

This is important because a lot of stock splits occurred that were not […]

Do you Republicans believe in their supply side fairy tales based on FAITH alone?

I always hear conservatives claiming that if you cut taxes (mostly for the rich), cut programs for the poor (job training, student grants, etc), and deregulate, the economy will grow fastest. On the other hand, they say that if you shift taxes to the wealthy, create ladders to help people work their way up, and […]

What did Douglas McCollam mean in the article "You can't sue the bean counters"?

Why did the bankers, accountants, and lawyers get off easy? Personally I think the ruling was inconclusive. What are secondary actors? Don’t […]

We had the refusal by the SEC to regulate derivatives in 2001 and later. We had a whole atmosphere of "deregulation" that led […]
