Walt Thiessen and Bill Westmiller discuss the "rigged" stock market of Flash Trading, the Ryan budget, pending NSA proposals and new revelations on surveillance and torture.
 
The hosts consider the impact and propriety of Flash Trading - computerized millisecond transactions - in the stock market. The continuing hazard of speculative 10-year federal "budgets" that have no meaning after an election.
 
Several different proposals for reform of the NSA domestic spying programs are reviewed, with little optimism about whether the surveillance will ever been constrained by the requirements of the Fourth Amendment. The Intelligence Budget and revelations about the hypocritical "cyberwarfare" against China are contrasted with the total ineffectiveness of the government's attempts to enhance "national security".
