In 1911, Standard Oil underwent what many
of today’s conservatives would decry as government and judicial
overreach; the petroleum giant — 41 years old and originally from
Cleveland — was taken apart by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Cleveland officials are apparently trying to outlaw flash mobs, describing them as violent, unruly terrorizing of communities and family-friendly events. That's not how AT&T presents them in this cell phone commercial.
Even as reckless Wall Street investors ring the alarms and bellow about needing $700 billion in taxpayer money to avoid an economic meltdown, some of them are trying to pin the blame on lower- and middle-class homeowners.
