Occupy Wall Street is an Important Movement That .......

http://www.nextppl.com

"Today there is a feeling of deep poison running through the ideological veins of this nation. The ghettos of cable news have shown us, by 24-hour assault, what becomes of discourse when the conscientious majority becomes its target. Now is the time to reign in this malevolent power. For in the future, blunt intimidation will become its preferred faculty, and Americans will be forced to stand against tanks in the same way a man, tired and wanting for rest, stood against Chinese tanks in 1989."

The scientists, who are members of the Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center (SCNARC) at Rensselaer, used computational and analytical methods to discover the tipping point where a minority belief becomes the majority opinion. The finding has implications for the study and influence of societal interactions ranging from the spread of innovations to the movement of political ideals.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com

New York isn't North Korea, but it's the closest thing you'll find in the U.S. -- at least according to a new report from a libertarian think tank.

A Mercatus Center study has pegged New York as the country's "least free" state, 49 slots behind "Live Free or Die" New Hampshire. Its authors gave the state particular abuse for its taxes, "by far the highest" in the country, according to their methodology.

True to their libertarian ways, however, they also said that New York would have scored higher if it had legalized gay marriage.
