This half hour segment of On the Money with Peter Hebert is titled "Business as Usual." The basis for the commentary begins with the unsustainable federal debt and the inability of the polarized political parties to come to an agreement to determine how elected representatives can meet the nation's obligations. Other topics include the connections between the Occupy Wall Street movement and the Civil Rights era; and the limits of peaceful non violence resistance and free speech in the face of dead beat cops in service of the police state. Recent American history shows that tragic tipping points are what is need for real change to end business as usual.
