Thank you Steve Jobs.
Would love to know you’re brutal opinion on the rough artwork for our logo.
Thanks for any and all feedback!
It seemed to me that the misalignment in time is what is fundamentally wrong with this kind of financial behaviour.

Mandatory data retention would force your Internet Service Provider to create vast and expensive new databases of sensitive information about you. That information would then be available to the government, in secret and without any court oversight, based on weak and outdated electronic privacy laws.
That same data could become available to civil litigants in private lawsuits–whether it’s the RIAA trying to identify downloaders, a company trying to uncover and retaliate against an anonymous critic, or a divorce lawyer looking for dirty laundry. These databases would also be a new and valuable target for black hat hackers, be they criminals trying to steal identities or foreign governments trying to unmask anonymous dissidents.
Thanks to Bloomberg and Fox News – their FOIA request made it all the way through the courts to force the Federal Reserve to reveal their loans during the peak of the Great Recession.
At the height of the financial crisis, the Federal Reserve allowed the world’s largest banks to turn more than $118 billion in junk bonds, defaulted debt, securities of unknown ratings and stocks into cash.
What’s even more bizarre, is the amount of loans to foreign banks and the fact a few loans apparently impacted the elections in 2010!
Not only did the Fed loan money to Belgian & German banks, and even a bank controlled by Libya – but apparently they loaned money to a Mexican bank controlled by a socialist drug czar that has strong connections to Nevada real estate. In a bizarre – and frightening twist – Senator Harry Reid is connected to several huge apartment complexes that used the bank to finance their purchase.
The apartment complexes are Section Eight housing for lower income and house a predominantly Hispanic community with rumors of a large population of illegal immigrants. It does not appear Senator Reid did anything illegal to help the Mexican bank owned by the socialist drug czar get the Fed loan at 0% to save the complex from certain bankruptcy. It is obvious however, that the immigrants voted for Reid in 2010 and played a vital role in his winning his re-election bid.
Yet another brilliant campaign by Colbert!

PACs are about to be defined by Colbert Nation – can I get a woot, woot?
“After an election, each new Congress rewrites the House Rules, which regulate all activities of the House of Representatives. This moment provides a singular opportunity to make Congress more transparent, ethical and responsive to the public.”
The Sunlight Foundation proposes dozens of rules changes that should be enacted by House leadership in the next Congress. These changes fall into four broad categories: Legislative Activity, Ethics, Access and Preservation. Below are some key recommendations.
