    Should the public be given further say, or should we trust our government?

    Goldman Sachs to invest in public social services

    A new program centered around "social service bonds" will allow the large investment bank to invest in and in turn bet on a program to reduce recidivism in the state. If the program meets certain benchmarks, Goldman can profit handsomely, otherwise it can lose money. Interesting idea...

    Sarah Palin Really Unfit for Public Office - An Editorial

    The more I read about Sarah Palin the more disgusted I become with her in running for public office. First she too quickly abandons her job as Alaska's governor due to all the so-called pressure she seems to constantly endure. That is not a good sign for a politician seeking a new public...
