With the OWS protests underway, Egyptian democracy activist Basem Fathy talks about the similarities and differences between Zuccotti Park and Tahrir Square, and the work left to be done.
In answer to today's question...The USA is a corporatocracy.
As for "who was responsible for the 911 attacks?"
One thing is for certain ....The official story is an embarrassment. Check out the thousands of architects, engineers, scientists, pilots etc...who are for 911 Truth. It is time that the investigation was reopened...instead of that sham that we call "The 911 OMISSION"Peace, Judy (part of the 99%)
@ john from office - As Harold said; that statement is nutty:
(P.S. ACORN no longer exists)
Inevitable: Right-Wing Media Freak Out Over Nonexistent "ACORN" Tie To Occupy Wall Street
Led by Fox News, right-wing media have claimed that ACORN is playing a "behind [the] scenes role" in Occupy Wall Street, alleging that the group New York Communities for Change (NYCC) -- which is led by a former ACORN official -- is paying people to join protests and collecting money to fund OWS activities. But NYCC has flatly denied these claims, and ACORN -- which has been a right-wing media bogeyman for years -- disbanded in November 2010.
It was in the news today, ACORN is paying people to show up at $10 an hour. Read the papers.
The wall street protesters are paid? John fails the nut test.
If Israeli security is totally dependent on the existence of brutally oppressive regimes throughout the region, that is a problem, and not a very good insurance policy. Time for a better plan.
Can you ask your guest if there will be three parts government, an Executive, a Parliament, and a Judiciary, each acting as a check on the other, as in the United States?
It's worth pointing out that our presidential primaries start in January and the elections happen in November.
Brian ask him two questions:
1) Who was responsible for the 911 attacks, as a test if he is a nut and
2) Were there any ACORN paid protesters in egypt, as there are at OWS, $10 an hour folks.
Similarity: In the US and Egypt the domestic media overwhelmingly treated the initial protests with naked skepticism, if not outright disdain.
