    Whats next ? One can only hope the closing of GITMO, indicting War Criminals, ending Scooter Libby Justice, protecting endangered spiecies and addressing,taking action on Global Warming/Climate Change is really needed as well. Releasing scheduled JFK assignation information for2020 early would be nice. Investigating and Closing off shore Tax Havens, then doing something about the 99%ers being able to afford to date, pay bills and earn a living worth living would really boost moral. We've all seen the graphs and they are facts the richest 1% have had their incomes increase by hundreds of percentages since the seventies, while most all others wages have stagnated over the past four decades. Getting rid of spying on Patriotic USA citizens should be foremost, because its not right and isn't fair in a Capitalistic society. Federal bans should be placed on States under Republican Control that have been and currently imposing laws disenfranchising voters. President Obama should hire Dennis Kucinich to replace Eric Holder as AG, it would give his last term a set of stones, because these issues are going to need a set of stones. My advise is apparently is free, rejoice America, lets get started.
