I don't subscribe either but learned, when Nate Silver moved there that if you know something of the story you're looking for doing a goole news search will often find it and when you click in through there the pay screen doesn't stop you from reaching the full article, anyway it's a way to read Times stories in full.

No body will pay to have people tell the truth, the truth is the most powerful and useless thing on Earth.

Powerful, because like Neil Degrasse Tyson said about science, the truth don't care about your lies it just is.

Useless because the truth can't be massaged or controlled, it's just the truth, the minute you try to massage it, well it's not the truth anymore.

No offense, friend, but you must be delusional. Ain't nuthin' going on here that merits Obama or anybody else using paid plants. Nowhere near enough people here, no real planning or threats to anybody or anything, no prospects of any such thing in the future, no reason at all to think anything of any importance at all will happen here. They have much, much more useful and important things to spend their money on.

[-] 2 points by factsrfun (6000) from Phoenix, AZ 1 year ago

The GOP are afraid that the Gitmo prisoners will all die before they can get more down there, I mean what if a Dem wins in 2016? it could be 12 years before Gitmo sees another prisoner, then what do they do to people that really threaten their power by talking about wealth inequality. I think they want Gitmo there for the really dangerous Americans.

On January 22, 2009, President Barack Obama signed an order to suspend the proceedings of the Guantanamo military commission for 120 days and to shut down the detention facility within the year.
On January 29, 2009, a military judge at Guantanamo rejected the White House request in the case of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, creating an unexpected challenge for the administration as it reviewed how the United States brings Guantanamo detainees to trial. On May 20, 2009, the United States Senate passed an amendment to the Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2009 (H.R. 2346) to block funds needed for the transfer or release of prisoners held at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp.
President Obama issued a Presidential memorandum dated December 15, 2009, ordering Thomson Correctional Center, Thomson, Illinois to be prepared to accept transferred Guantanamo prisoners.

How many has he imprisoned in all the new secret prisons in Africa? No one knows. How many nations has he bombed since taking office? 8. How many nations has he sent troops into? 10.

Keep pretending this guy is any better. Your baseline for acceptable is so pathetically low that I guess "less murders" are ok. "Less people being tortured at Gitmo" is acceptable.

That was teh whole point of the Bush era. To desensitize the nation to war. It worked. What is going on now is 100% unacceptable.

Do you apply that logic to the rest of your life too?

[-] -1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

war is torture.

it displaces people from their homes, rips families apart, destroys needed infrastructure, and leaves people often without any way of getting health care. After the surge, Afghanistan saw it's highest level of civilian death since the start of the war.

When fragmentation bombs are being deployed, all talks of human rights are a farce.

You are a product of nihilistic relativism. You make excuses for atrocity because the other guy committed atrocity too, in some cases which were worse.

[-] -2 points by frovikleka (2563) from Island Heights, NJ 1 year ago

Red baiting is a bullshitting tactic used by you in an attempt to discredit an opponent by using false or groundless deprecating accusations

You are a fellow traveler in the sense that like me, you are supportive of most of the principles of Occupy Wall Street, but unlike me, you do not want to join this group

Because to do so would mean having to renounce your pathetic attempt to turn this noble struggle into a wing of the Democratic party

You know factsy, 'red baiting' was made most popular by 'ol Joe in the '50s, and yet you so often use it on the good OWS people here, hmmmm?....my suspicions of you grows....lol

You are not trying to discredit the many good progressives on here by making them look stupid with your malicious antics, are you factsy?

[-] -1 points by frovikleka (2563) from Island Heights, NJ 1 year ago

I wondered how long it would take you to get back to Nader and Gore

I know the ugly history of McCarthyism quite well, hence I also know that your tactics of denegrating people are very simular

There was a woman from Maine who was the first to speak out against Senator Joe's ugliness, and she is one of my favorite people in history for having the courage to do so

Her name, Senator Margaret Chase Smith R from Maine

On the Senate floor in what was to called the Declaration of Conscience speech, she said, "I do not want to see the Republican party ride to victory on the Four Horses of Calumny - Fear, Ignorance, Bigotry, and Smear"

Except possibly for bigotry, you have the other ones down pat

Senator Smith also went on to say in that speech. "The basic principles of Americanism are;

-The right to criticize

-The right to hold unpopular beliefs

-The right to protest

-The right of independent thought"

I could see your argument was getting weak factsy, so I wanted to give you some fodder

I mean..imagine that..one of Odin's - frovikleka's favorite people in history is a woman, a REPUBLICAN no less!

Certainly in your little mind, you should be able to increase your smear campaign against me in knowing that

[-] -1 points by DtChavezMorrisZhagrib (25) 1 year ago

Unfortunately, Americans are not known for their intellectualism. Most are unable to debate in proper fashion using strong logic and argumentation. They always want to be right, and want to one up their opponents. Shooz, and DKAtoday are good examples of such people. Either they agree in which case they throw high-fives and twinkles, or they disagree in which case they mock, insult, etc... They are unable to think critically. They act as the forum guardians and prosecutors, but, ironically, they don't even understand what Occupy is all about. They think it's a new political party of some sort. Politics, politics, politics...

When most people think of Americans, they see a huge blob-like person/fat monster sort of thing eating thawed hamburgers, drinking a bucket of Coca-Cola, and watching Jerry Springer reruns. They certainly don't imagine someone reading Lacan, or Thoreau.

[-] 4 points by frovikleka (2563) from Island Heights, NJ 1 year ago

I disagree with your negative assessment of the other posters here

We all do our best to try and convince other people to our point of view, as I do, and we should do so without initiating nastiness, and like I said earlier in another post, most of us have grown since coming here which is good

While having no formal education myself, i have bright, well educated kids whom my ex and i have always taught to follow their heart, to think critically, stand up for what they believe in, and to always aspire to be better people

Just in the 18 months that i have been here, i have learned to articulate myself so much better than when i first came here, and for whatever it's worth my eclectic likes in music range from the Waltz of The Sleeping Beauty (playing now)...The Blue Danube...to Amarillo By Morning...to Pearl Jam, and even to Hip Hop.

I grew up with a Swedish Dad; worked and broke bread with people from all over the world; have traveled quite a bit; and was married to a woman from New Zealand for over twenty years so i haven't led the typical American life

Hence I know well the unfortunately partially accurate opinion that people from other countries have of us, but

What a good part of Occupy is also striving for, and what will be essential in our struggle is for people to reconnect, build COMMUNITY and in the process, change our ethos in getting away from being so hateful of one another, or different groups of people

I the same way that neoliberalism has promoted the latter in its aim to keep us divided, our struggle is propagating the former

And I am doing my part to bring that to fruition, but yes I obviously am flawed too

It's a correct assessment that some might interpret as being negative.

Not very eclectic. You should listen to great American composers like Steve Reich, George Antheil, John Cage, etc... Those are the real musicians of America. Unfortunately, most Americans don't even know them. The reason is because most Americans are unable to appreciate culture and arts. They need people from europe to point out to them that someone like George Antheil is important, respected, and an unforgettable part of music history. American's listen to Miles Davis's Kind of Blue, while the rest of the world listens to Bitches Brew.

And I am doing my part to bring that to fruition, but yes I obviously am flawed too

Everyone's flawed. The goal is not to be perfect, but to aim to be better, and thus closer to the truth. We can do this by learning proper debating mechanisms, by acquiring more knowledge by knowing what we should read, etc...

The problem with shooz, DKAtoday, and the other members of the Twinkle Team is that they refuse to learn. They do not debate, they embrace what they like and insult what they don't. This is precisely why they do not understand what Occupy is all about even after a few years of being addicted to this site. They think Occupy is an anti-republican protest. They always discuss politics. DKAtoday sends letters to the President, thereby legitimizing his power over us. He does these anti-Occupy actions because he fails to understand that Occupy is not about playing into politics. It's about anarchy; the idea that we the people can create a better world by ourselves, for ourselves. We don't need representatives, so let's start by stopping to legitimize their power.


It's good to know your children are intelligent and interesting. They must stick out amongst all the Jerry Springer watchers in your country. They are the good exception. Unfortunately, Americans are generally poorly educated, uninteresting, show-offs, warmongers, unhealthy eaters, and generally disliked by the world's population.

[-] 0 points by DtChavezMorrisZhagrib (25) 1 year ago

I'm sure they are here with good intentions. I'm saying they don't have the ability for proper intellectual debates and that's why they fall in the trap of using logical fallacies to go against the ideas they don't agree with. This is unfortunate for them as it hinders their learning ability which is why they still don't understand Occupy even though all the information is out there.

They will continue to believe Occupy is a political party until the day they die. This limits their power of action. If DKAtoday participated in a group that believed in sending letters to the President, he would have more support form the group and the idea would have much more impact. He's ideas aren't bad, they just don't follow in the principles of Occupy. He would be better off working for a political party, or some other movement like moveon.

It's also a question of integrity. Why would someone support a movement if they don't support the basic principles of that movement? It makes little sense. Shooz and DKAtoday don't believe the system is broken. That's why they legitimize the system by asking their representatives to make changes. They mostly believe it's a problem stemming from republicans, and other right wing agendas. This is fine, but it has little to do with Occupy. They would achieve much more if they worked for a political party like the greens or the democrats where their ideas would be shared by the rest of those involved. Why support anarchy if you don't believe in it? Don't you find that strange?

The website you posted has a section titled "how do we get there"

and under that is the statement: "We the people, shall organize and sign petitions to bring about popular referendum"

So why do you demean other peoples petition activism and then push your own petition?

Is it that only YOUR petition is valid. Kinda self centered, & arrogant no?

Maybe you aren't related to this website/effort at all and had no knowledge that they call for petitions. Is that it?

You found this good effort and decided to use it as a means to discourage valuable petition activism, and to squelch/silence important necessary political discourse.

You don't know anything about direct democracy do you?. You don't support i-govern.org and are only attempting to disrupt, divide, and discourage this forum, and any progress.

As much as I appreciate the anarchists for having woken us up, and for that being the ideal in having a more participatory system

And as radical as some people here might view me for not wanting to get involved in the rotten political system

But rather encouraging people to RESIST including getting out in the streets. That being the only way that we will achieve systemic change

I do not view myself as an anarchist, just for the simple fact that i don't believe it could work in a country of 300 + million people

There are people in Occupy exploring a better system, perhaps a modified version of anarchy that would serve us better in the sustainable world most of us want, and that is really good

The truth is that radicals and reformers have a long history of working well together, and at no time was that more evident than in the early 20th century labor struggles

To a big degree, we can thank the commies and the socialists for the New Deal, and as I pointed out in another thread, 'that is why they had to be made the bogeyman

You mean the thread that supposedly got you "banned" but more like you ran away from the forum for months because all here became aware that you don't give a shit about OWS your sole purpose here is to dump on Obama and protect the GOP from defeat and to prevent the American people form obtaining equality.

You commented here on this thread because you fear people learning that unlike the crap you and your fellow trolls post Obama has been doing all he can to close Gitmo and the GOP are pissed about that.

If you gave a shit about Gitmo, you would be pointing out the pain the GOP is feeling as the number of people held there dwindles.

But you are just a hater nothing more nothing less.

I never ran away from the forum, not even in the 2 x times I was in AK

The problem for you now is the forum is getting away from partisan politics more and more, as the moderators have improved. This must be so frustrating for you

Sunday morning poetry. I'll have to tune in, it sounds downright religious.

Yeah, frf would be better devoting his energy toward the common cause instead of directing it at you. I vaguely remember him putting up some good things. But wasn't he absent from the forum for quite a while? Didn't he just return fairly recently?

Or maybe I just wasn't paying attention.

You're right, we should all be devoting ourselves to the "common cause" of improving our lives, and hence the lives of our progeny

When factsy was gone for a while. I think my blood pressure was getting too low then

Now that he is back, it is normal again ;-)

Getting back to the good stuff. I had a really cool day today working alongside university kids who gave up their spring break to come here to NJ to help home-oners who were devastated by superstorm Sandy

They are in a program called Community Collaborations International. They were great kids, and I congratulated them for not being airheads.

I now have a new fondness for the Ohio State Buckeyes, and the Cornell College Iowans, the schools they attended

I did have the chance during the day to radicalize them up a bit too..;-)

Blood pressure back to normal. That's funny as hell. So he is doing some good after all, heheheh.

It's a good sign that a lot of these young people are actually getting aware and engaged. And doing a lot of good it seems. There wasn't a whole lot of that going on in my youth around here. It's true that a lot of our generation dropped the ball, but it's seldom too late to make up for lost time. This movement gives some of us a chance to make amends of sorts. It's powerful. And I can feel the change in my bones. Things are changing, I can feel it.

[-] 0 points by frovikleka (2563) from Island Heights, NJ 1 year ago

It's never too late gnomunny, and making "amends for our generation having "dropped the ball" is exactly how I see my participation in Occupy

It was so nice to see these kids here today, and at the end, 4-5 of them gave me their cameras/phones to take group pictures of them with their Buckeye shirts on, and posing crazily

And I don't know if i told you, but i had two conversations recently with my doctor and a person at the credit union i belong to, and both were amazingly keen as to what has and still is going on in this country

That was a surprise to me. It really was.

~Odin~

[-] 0 points by gnomunny (6885) from St Louis, MO 1 year ago

I do believe that people are starting to get the picture. My nephew said he heard someone on the bus (or doctor's office) the other day talking about the gun confiscation issue. Not that there's going to be an actual confiscation, mind you, but at least this person was aware of the issue.

And one of my neighbor's came over about a week ago and was talking to us as we worked on the other neighbor's van and he was fully aware of the banking shenanigans. Knew all the big names, Dimon, Blankfein, Geithner. I was surprised and impressed. And he was not too happy.

So, yeah, the word is spreading.

The problem, facts, is that you, and a lot of others, seem to think that Obama bashing is the same as supporting the GOP. That's an extremely narrow-minded, simplistic viewpoint. And I've followed Odin's comments for months now and know for a fact, he's no GOP shill and definitely IS a strong supporter of all thing Occupy. Which leads me to believe your problem with him is personal, because it sure isn't based on any "facts."

Odin has thrown logic and truth under the buss in order to attack Obama here is one example:

From here to see the whole thread you welcome to make up your own mind of course, that IS what OWS is all about after all, that's another thing odin seems to object to he is consistinly telling me what does and does not fit into OWS rather than simply presenting his own views, I suppose that's why he doesn't contribute to the forum he doesn't really want to share his own views so much as regulate other people's not exactly a OWS sort of thing I would think.

Most occupiers hate all politicians, especially the Democrats and Republicans that broke up occupy. With all the Republican bashing, the last thing we need are the few here that actually helped to be bashing them too.

It would turn it something that people could find anywhere else in politics- hoards of people all blaming the other one, and giving theirs a free pass.

Thats the last thing this country needs. That doesn lead to change. A broad based group attacking the banks and bought out politicians is not what "they" want. Thats why they broke it all up.

TM is like many others in occupy, in that it was that moron Bush who got him involved politically- myself as well, with the wars, the money and the corruption-, And like many other young people, went with Obama.

And like many other occupiers, now realize this entire system is fucked. Realize that your peace prize winner is actually a war criminal. Realize that no decent person would sign shit that he has been signing.

If you want to play question/answer I have been waiting for you to answer that one for a year.

You've called me a republican many times on this forum.

Minimum wage increase / living wage standard = I 100% support this.

Do you consider those who vote to give billions to Goldman Sachs to be corrupt?

[-] 3 points by factsrfun (6000) from Phoenix, AZ 1 year ago

So did you say that the Democrats who overwhelming support the minimum wage increase have a significantly different and superior position than the Republicans that overwhelmingly oppose it?

Is that what you are saying?

[-] -1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

I am saying anyone who sells us out to Goldman Sachs, big oil, insurance companies, etc.... are not heroes and saviors. They are corrupt.

Even Mitt Romney donates millions to charity and he's still a piece of shit.

One good deed does not make up for years on end worth of corruption. This tactic is actually a key in manufacturing consent for all the bullshit. May I suggest reading a book by Noam Chomsky.

In regards to minimum wage yah the Democrats have a better viewpoint. In regards to giving billions to corrupt companies destroying the economy, the 2 party system is a fucking scam.

Do you consider those who vote to give billions to Goldman Sachs to be corrupt?

You can't answer my question because you're a shill. A phony.

Go read a book by Chris Hedges. May I suggest Death of the Liberal Class. The book is pretty much about you and your compromise with power over liberal ideals.

I do not support the republican party. I will fully answer your question when you answer mine.

Oh no if you want to play the game you have to go first, I won't be fooled again, I have been waiting far longer to see you address this.

[-] -1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

You don't think people who give billions to Goldman Sachs are corrupt because the people you praise have participated in that corruption. You are a classic example of someone who constantly compromises morals in the name of party allegiance.

Shouldn't you be blaming Nader and liberal organizations outside the 2 party system by now?

[-] 3 points by factsrfun (6000) from Phoenix, AZ 1 year ago

shouldn't you be making up more lies TROLL

[-] -2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

dude you spread more propaganda about Nader than the GOP during OSHA.

[-] 2 points by factsrfun (6000) from Phoenix, AZ 1 year ago

How exactly is this "propaganda"?

Maybe because it's an An Inconvenient Truth that Bush would never have been President without help from Nader?

Nader the traitor has crawled under a rock,

It’s the only place safe from the things that he wrot.

As millennia approached us, we had one last shot,

To keep the planet we’re on from getting, too damn hot.

But Nader thought better his name should be heard.

And Gore was left standing with only his word.

Ten times ten thousand thought Gore couldn’t lose

And a statement was needed to make the world choose

Are we to be puppets and dance on a string?

Or will we be spirits and let our hearts sing?

December reality came crashing in

The court has decided that Bush got the win.

Where was the outrage where were the cries?

Believers were muted they had bought all the lies

How could they scream, how could they roar?

When even their ballots weren’t marked for Al Gore?

The Court destroyed democracy that day

So it would be safe for the Royals to play.

Cutting taxes is sweet

And we love all the meat

But Bush had a fear

What if folks start to hear?

Then an appointment or two

And I give you C-U.

[-] -2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

Everything about Nader was better than Gore.

You are the death of the liberal class.

Riddle me this... Do you consider those who vote to give billions of dollars to Goldman Sachs to be corrupt?

[-] 2 points by factsrfun (6000) from Phoenix, AZ 1 year ago

I am waiting for you to answer the first question just to make sure you really want to do question/answer since you seem to feel any question asks requires answer some me how' it's done and tell me about my posts of which you think Goldman would approve, since you have actually accused me of supporting them prove it.

[-] -2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

I answered your question. They like your posts where you root for the people they funded campaigns for. The posts where you propagate for people... people who have voted to give billions to Goldman Sachs. They love those posts.

Do you consider those who vote to give billions to Goldman Sachs to be corrupt?

you're not going to answer this question because you're a shill. Prove me wrong and answer the question.

When you support and vote for people who then vote to give billions to Goldman Sachs, you are supporting Goldman Sachs. It's like supporting Wal-Mart by shopping at Wal-Mart.

You are a hopeless shill. Prove me wrong by providing the correct answer to my question.

All of those who vote to give billions to Goldman Sachs are corrupt.

This thread is about gitmo. Are you confused.?

Why don't you identify, denounce,and work towards retirement of "those who vote to give millions to Goldman Sachs?"

Why JUST Goldman Sachs?

What billions are you referring to.?

Which votes are you talkin about?

A great slogan, but if you mean it as more than just a slogan you need to flesh it out some.

If you mean it, perhaps you can clarify these questions.

[-] -1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

Hi VQ! Feel free to ask questions with your other accounts and have conversations with yourself.

Don't play dumb about Goldman Sachs.

This is an ongoing convo between me and the other user.

[-] 2 points by inclusionman (7064) 1 year ago

You keep changing the conversation away from the thread topic.

Why can't you discuss the gitmo issue.? Are you under orders by your RW lobby group paymaster to avoid the subject of closing gitmo?.

I never talk to myself. Why are you afraid to answer my questions? Why do you distract with dishonest personal attacks against me.?

Why JUST Goldman Sachs?

What billions are you referring to.?

Which votes are you talkin about?

Hey, thanks for posting this.

That was a shameless bump.

You don't know they are paid. You malign them with that lie because you don't like their politics.

Mostly, we accept all political persuasions for the sake of debate (even pro deocrats).

Many of us hope in the end that we can 'turn' those who disagree with us.

Some, seek to silence opposing views. Frequently this is because their arguments are too weak to compete in 'the marketplace of ideas'.

Are your substantive arguments too weak to compete with the pro democrats so you have to spread unfounded lies, and personal attacks.?

Exec orders? LOL. Attacking Africa.?

WE can force our govt to change military policy. Ending Iraq war, ending Afghan war, reducing drone strikes, are all successes that have come from the peoples protests.

We just have to grow our movements. If Occupy ain't doing enough then:

Code pink, Justforeignpolicy. Ufpj, Rootsaction, aclu, amnesty.

Join up, get active, Our actions are making a difference.
