The Hacktivist Collective “Anonymous” to Release the Names of About 1,000 Ku Klux Klan Members

The following article was posted at the Guardian (10/29/15), I have included a link to same at the end of the piece as there are some interesting graphics that accompany the original piece. I would also briefly editorialize that the article cites the Southern Poverty Law Center as “estimating” KKK membership between 5,000 and 8,000; I absolutely do not believe that.

This is a skill that is most useful on The Hollywood Squares.

Newspaper Endorsements: Not Worth the Ink

The following is a reprint of an article which I've published in one form or another every election cycle since 2001. This is as important for our present as it is for our future. Please consider sharing.

SLOW RECOVERY AND WAGE DISPARITY

In the 1980's, economists blamed inflation on too much money chasing too few products. Today, as calculated, there is little inflation, so there is too little money chasing an abundance of goods. One of the causes of this is the disparity between worker wages and CEO etc. pay/compensation.
