Thank you Cenk for covering what most of the media seems to be afraid to cover. This is the first time I'm hearing about any of this. I love you! You're awesome! And you're exactly right and on point. Your last line said it best: "the only thing that matters is if you're on that yacht". And the sad thing is most ppl don't know about it because again most mainstream media does not cover it. The media is just as bad as the republican party as they stand by and let our nation get destroyed instead of being the watch dogs for the public they're supposed to be. They're more like lap dogs to the government. They should be ashamed of themselves!! And the ones who know the truth need to speak up!!!!

It is starting to smell in Florida, the state that rigged the election won by W. -- good reporters are finding just how little the average delegate means to the movers-and-shakers -- I smell Karl Rove :(

I would like to know, from anyone, just how do we stop this? How do we take the money out of our political system? It seems so entrenched that voting in new people won't change it, for god's sake the supreme court is in on it. How do the people of the United States get to vote for candidates that are interested in serving the people? Anyone?

Occupy Wall Street should have been about a constitutional amendment to ban money from politics. We should have public financing of campaigns, single term limits for all, and an election cycle no more than 90 days long. The only way the powers that be will change course is when most of the country is at their door with torches lit, ready to tear it all down and start over if something doesn't give. Sadly, most Americans would rather live in denial and pretend only one party is at fault than risk what they have left for something better.

Except for Sen. Bernie Sanders, put all our Washington politicans on a farm, freeze all their assest, and work them 40 hours a week on minimum wage for two months. Then, we'll see how well they connect with real people -- others making minimum and low wages, those having to pay for groceries on food stamps, etc.

By law, elected officials should make the median income, with absolutely no investment holdings allowed. I've given up on instilling empathy in these people; holding office needs to be a bad business decision so only those who care about public service will do it.

Could the American people stop calling the US a Democratic country?
12:05 PM on 08/30/2012
Yes, then maybe Americans would fight to get it back, where now they are just handing it over to the 1% at the top, whose only concern is their personal profit, and who use people like objects to further their exorbitant lifestyles, and then punish anyone who objects or demands an accounting of their actions, ( while they tell us they are God's representatives on Earth).

Just where in the Constitution does it say that bribery should be legal?

Slavery is the legal fiction that a person is property.

Corporate personhood is the legal fiction that property is a person.

Citizen United is the legal fiction that bribery is speech.

We want our representative's back to doing what is best for this country-not for what is best for their donors.

Corruption is not a problem in our government--it has become our system.

Changing the players without changing the system is useless.

Our system being corrupt is a non-partisan issue. NOTHING will change unless we the people change it.

THEN will be the time to argue ideology.

Campaign Finance Reform or Fascism—that is everyone’s choice whether they know it or not.

The proceses to change things have been so corrupted that we may not be able to do it through the process.

"They're so brazen the boat they were meeting on was flying a Cayman Islands flag. As one local put it, even their yacht doesn't want to pay taxes."
The press focus follows Fox News. If a Democrat were flying something other than the American Flag Fox News would lead with it hour after hour until the other stations treated it as news too.

We need a millionaire spy to go to these things and record everything.

it would make no difference. We already know everything and his voters don't seem to care.

Read some Michael Moore. That is exactly what he did in the past, and uncovered some of the earliest outsourcing they were keeping quiet so as not to rile the public about deliberately moving companies and cutting jobs.

For the oligarchs, by the oligarchs.

Does Romney and his boat hate America?
12:11 PM on 08/30/2012
No, they hate Democracy, free market, negotiation, creativity, representation, majority rule, equality, public education, freedom of speech, unbiased courts of law/judges, equal pay for equal work, an educated and prosperous public, and Christianity (They tout it. They do not practice it.) I'm sure there's more, but can't think of it right this minute.
