Reich writes: "Now that Mitt Romney is the presumed Republican candidate, it's fair to ask how he made so much money ($21 million in 2010 alone) and paid such a low rate of taxes (only 13.9 percent)."

Mitt Romney: So Much Money, So Little in Taxes

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Excellent simplified analysis of a horrendous manipulation of money that makes me dislike Romney even more -- if that's even possible.

Mitt is used to taking businesses, squeezing the profits from them, and then tossing them aside like a piece of rind! He didn't help repair them, he swooped in like a vulture and picked at the bones until nothing was left! He tossed people from their jobs with great glee! He even said "I like firing people!" He is a cold, callous jerk! He should pay, and pay for more than just taxes; he should pay for the lives he ruined!

Robert Reich's lecture on private equity tricksters was illuminating. I must admit that had I known at the outset that was its sponsor, I should have passed it up. Move-on is, in my view, a trickster, too! It poses as an independent, grass-roots, political organization. I think it is an adjunct of the Democratic Party, for which I have nothing but contempt. The Democratic Party is part of the corporate take-over of our government, its imperialism and its devastation of our democratic (small "d") institutions, such as the Bill of Rights.

I just saw a video of the NYC parade. We will prevail.
