EMPIRE BURLESQUE AND ALL THAT JAZZ
NOW HEAR THIS: Cindy's Internet broadcasts continue!
CHRIS FLOYD! Click here to listen or download, beginning at 2:00 PM San Francisco time. Today, (October 30th), Cindy brings us a long-anticipated (and memorable) interview with Chris Floyd, the intellectual light shining through the pages of "Empire Burlesque." A prolific and articulate writer, his perceptive private blog has illuminated all of us here at Soapbox and inspired many of our firm principles. We're not yet certain WHICH topics he'll discuss with Cindy. However, I would guess that he will discuss our recent "Police Riot" in Oakland on Tuesday night, 10/25 2011. That was the evening that Scott Olsen sustained a skull fracture after being shot in the head with a police projectile while peacefully participating in an Occupy Oakland march. Honor our veterans? An Iraq War veteran who survived two tours of duty got his skull fractured in ... Oakland! 53 activists were arrested in Atlanta. while Nationally, SWAT teams were deployed to boot out peaceful protesters! THIS is how we protect our First Amendment rights! Cindy observed the fact that the Occupy movement's terminology about "the 99 percent vs. the 1 percent elite" is not entirely accurate; far too many of the 99 percent are serving as willing tools of the 1 percent - in the police forces, in the media, even in the general public, where you can always find plenty of people eagerly genuflecting to the high and mighty. As Chris notes: "You can smell the fear in the boardrooms (and in their bought-and-paid-for extensions, the government offices) around the world." He and Cindy then proceed with their most wonderful discussion!And please be sure to use the "Click here" link above to hear Chris Floyd talk with Cindy.
