If the 99% Movement doesn’t put forth a Candidate for President in the 2012 elections, please join me in writing in Bernie Sanders name.

Hi Thom Been a follower since you were here in Portland. You were correct in about 2007 when you said it would come down to taking to the streets by the common people. I know you never supported any violence, but I feel that some conflict resolution will be done by violence against our wishes. I still agreee with you about the Banksters and the damage they have heaped upon us is tremendous. Please keep up the good work.


I use the words religion,philosophy, and science to denote categories of human inquiry into existence. Science being the study of how things work. Philosophy being the study of how we derive knowledge and meaning. Religion being the study of peoples experience of God's presence and what that means to them. A person can be religious and not be involved with a socially organized religious faith.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

And for good reason, too.
