Unleash The Lawyers! Mounting Costs Of NSA Scandal To Bleed US Tech For Years

As we’ve said, the technology sector is in some real trouble because of its partnership (in many instances) with the NSA.

Tech is probably the most important industry in the USA. And we export a lot of technology. However, overseas customers (and domestic ones too) are having second thoughts about buying from companies which have worked closely with US spy agencies. Orders are dropping around the world.

Now a new front may be opening for Silicon Valley,

Gov. Brian Schweitzer (D) has labeled President Obama a “corporatist.” Says O has moved “Right.” What does “Right” even mean these days?

Schweitzer is trying to “out progressive” Hillary Clinton and other challengers by throwing some bombs. In this case–at least on the corporatist charge–a bomb of truth.

States begin move to nullify Obamacare, Judge Napolitano explains that this would “gut” the program

Obamacare, more than anything is a big giveaway to the health insurance industry. It’s a crony capitalist scheme to its core and more people (and entire states) are coming to realize this.
