DN Thursday, December 16, 2010: Please answer two of the three questions:
- New York City Consultants Charged in $80M Waste, Fraud Scheme: Who is Michael Bloomberg and what’s his history? Where does he rank in world wealth and how did he make his money?
- As WikiLeaks’ Assange Freed on Bail, Alleged Military Leaker Bradley Manning Imprisoned under Inhumane Conditions: Are there conditions under which whistleblowing (revealing secrets a corporation doesn’t want exposed) or espionage (revealing secrets a government doesn’t want exposed) would always be legitimate? Can you give an example from history of a time when everyone would agree that it was the moral thing to do? How do those circumstances compare to the present?
- Reps. Rush Holt and Raúl Grijalva on House Democratic Opposition to Obama’s Tax Deal with GOP: Is Social Security an insurance, where you get back what you pay for when you need it, or is it a welfare system? Should the government be required to pay back into Social Security what they “borrowed” from it, and to account for where it’s going currently?
