Share Robert Reich's comments

Demagogues through history have known that big lies, repeated often enough, start being believed -- unless they're rebutted. These seven economic whoppers are just plain wrong. Make sure you know the truth - and spread it on. (The Seven Biggest Economic Lies, Robert Reich)

BOGUE, Kan. - The Occupy protesters are sometimes faulted for being "unfocused" -- meaning, I suppose that there are a variety of concerns -- thus far not sufficiently sewn together.

But I'd say the economic disparity between the rich and the rest of us -- now greater than at any time since the Great Depression and which has been widening since the "government is the problem" heyday of Grandpa Ronnie -- is the common denominator. If you agree with what Reich is saying, I hope you'll spread the word. Without a doubt, the banksters and corporate fat cats are nervous now, and will do all they can to discredit, disrupt, and dismantle any informed citizen activism threatening their power and greed. Part of that effort is to lie often and eagerly.

Reich will dismantle their propaganda ....

Occupy Wichita October 2


WICHITA, Kan. - The Occupy Wall Street movement sparked by demonstrations on Wall Street has spread across the country, even to Kansas.

Here is a video from Wichita's first occupy moment on Sunday, October 2.

Wall Street Woes

COLBY, Kan. - What is Occupy Wall Street all about? What are they protesting or supporting? How many of the participants have any idea of how to correct the inequities they are protesting? How many of the masses have the ability and fortitude to accept responsibility, if given the opportunity to manage their own financial affairs and daily work agenda and schedules?

I admire their willingness to face the elements and stand their ground in protest. I agree with them in their assessment of unfair rewards for individual contributions toward the success of the capitalistic system of commerce and manufacturing enterprises.
