Highly paid employees at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's Denver regional office and six other locations were "counseled or disciplined for accessing pornography sites" at work, according to a new disclosure. The Office of Inspector General publicly disclosed last year that 33 SEC employees and agency contractors were investigated for viewing porn or sexually explicit websites on government computers and time from 2005 through 2010.

Despite the looming possibility of a government shutdown, federal layoffs and furloughs, there’s at least one thing members of Congress from both political parties can readily agree on these days: partying.
This means the Flash Crash Advisory Commission that met on Friday has a long way to go in restoring confidence to the point that will bring the individual investor back into a market still ruled by high frequency trading, exchange-traded funds and leveraged hedge funds. The Yale School of Management since 1989 has asked wealthy individual investors monthly to give the “probability of a catastrophic stock market crash in the U.S. in the next six months.” In the latest survey in December, almost 75 percent of respondents gave it at least a 10 percent chance of happening.

Before I started writing this column on why paychecks are likely to keep shrinking even if unemployment starts to inch down, I consulted Google to see if the term Marxism was trending upward. It was and has been ever since the end of December, the conclusion of a year in which workers' share of the U.S. economic pie shrank to the smallest piece ever: 54.4% of GDP, down from about 60% in the 1970s.
A RAUNCHY game for the Nintendo Wii has outraged parents who say it promotes orgies and lesbian sex to kids as young as 12.
The daunting tower of national, state and local debt in the United States will reach a level this year unmatched just after World War II and already exceeds the size of the entire economy, according to government estimates. But any similarity between 1946 and now ends there. The U.S. debt levels tumbled in the years after World War II, but today they are still climbing and even deep cuts in spending won't completely change that for several years.
The big ISPs, especially Comcast and Time Warner Cable, have intervened for months in massive file-sharing lawsuits, telling judges that they simply can't drop all of their activity for law enforcement in order to spend weeks doing IP address lookups on behalf of pornographers.
This week on the AlterNet Radio Hour, RJ Eskow -- a fellow at the Campaign for America's Future and host of The Breakdown -- and Joshua Holland untangle the ugly fiction that half the country are indolent "takers," while half are tax-paying "makers." It's not true -- but what does it mean that a candidate from a major party would suggest that it is? Then we're joined by former CIA analyst Ray McGovern, who explains that it wasn't some dumb movie-trailer that's set much of the "Muslim world" on fire.
