Why it is important that Occupy Wall Street Remains Independent

Franklin @ October 20, 2011 # No Comment Yet

A The Onion called Occupy Wall Street to define a position so everybody could move on and ignore them. The old guard doesn’t get Occupy Wall Street. They still think in terms of “political movements” when Occupy Wall Street is a moral movement. For too long, Morality (and I mean Morality, not chest-banging in the […]

What’s Happening to The Republic

Franklin @ September 22, 2008 # One Comment

Some days I regret not having done something. For instance, I regret not having titled one of my articles Fear and Looting in Wall Street. This was back in August of 2007, and I thought then that it was going to be seen as a will exaggeration. Fast forward to the mother of all bailouts […]

An Interesting Source of Information

Franklin @ December 20, 2007 # No Comment Yet

Today I want to share a very interesting website: Wikileaks. Their goal is to develop … an uncensorable Wikipedia for untraceable mass document leaking and analysis. Our primary interest is in exposing oppressive regimes in Asia, the former Soviet bloc, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, but we also expect to be of assistance to […]

In Shift, Spitzer Is Expected to Back a Federal ID – New York Times

Franklin @ October 27, 2007 # 2 Comments

Pressure to limit the Bill of Rights’ provisions, push them into oblivion, or otherwise ignore them keeps mounting.

When being a Christian meant being compassionate

Franklin @ September 23, 2007 # No Comment Yet

When the Nazis came for the communists, I remained silent; I was not a communist. When they locked up the social democrats, I remained silent; I was not a social democrat. When they came for the trade unionists, I did not speak out; I was not a trade unionist. When they came for the Jews, […]
