  • Bokushu, thanks for the info. Unfortunately, i am away for the weekend. One thing is bothering me. Hospitals are mandated to treat all who present at their emergency rooms: treatment is free for those who cannot pay; hospitals receive a subsidy - not per patient but a yearly lump sum - from the Fed government for this service. Routinely, hospitals bill indigent patients anyway and...

  • Bokushu, i agree that the NYPL tramples on constitutional rights - not just in assembly/protest but in many other way, e.g. Stop & Frisk. The NYPL works for the power structure and will not be deterred from unconstitutional practices until/unless some mayor orders it so. That is devoutly to be wished and extremely unlikely. The only recourse is law suits. Unfortunately, they take...

  • Bokushu, thanks for the report and reflections on the OWS anniversary. I am not sure that demonizing the 1% is an effective strategy, politically or personally (in the sense of apologizing or agonizing over the fact of success). It was important that OWS introduce the topic of income inequality into the political atmosphere generally as well as its specific negative effect on...

  • Although "truth commissions" are established by the political power, they are comprised of eminent persons, i.e. those with the highest integrity and generally agreed to be above the issues being judged.

  • Dear All, you may enjoy this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IgEdrh617qs&feature=youtu.be I have been following the Rev. Billy for several years. He was an entertainer who founded the Church of Stop Shopping as a critique of American society - sort of a lark at the beginning. He and the Church have become increasingly serious as a spiritual endeavor as well as an alternative...

  • Bokushu, i agree with your analysis. I am sure that my friend would agree with your structural analysis. However, i think that it is relevant that a guy who manages billions thinks that Occupy is having a depressive effect on markets and has informed his investors of that conclusion. To me, this is an interesting turn of events and signifies that Occupy's issues are being taken...

  • Dear All, below is an excerpt from the quarterly newsletter (dated Nov 15) of a friend who heads a major hedge fund. Although my friend is well up in the 1% class - and a fiscal and social conservative - ideology does not necessarily follow from economic status - i think what he has to say is worth sharing. While there may not be a direct link between the spreading "Occupy...
