Pope Francis called Friday for governments to redistribute wealth to the poor in a new spirit of generosity to help curb the "economy of exclusion" that is taking hold today.
Latin America's first pope has frequently lashed out at the injustices of capitalism and the global economic system that excludes so much of humanity, though his predecessors have voiced similar concerns.

He said a more equal form of economic progress can be had through "the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the state, as well as indispensable cooperation between the private sector and civil society."

We all started out on the Glenn Beck site. When the boards were shut down we made our way to the other site. Many of us have gotten to know each other well. I don't think many people were friends with the site owner. She wanted to please the people associated with the news show crew and did what they told her. They didn't want certain people on the site or certain subjects discussed on the site. Anyone associated was banned.
She wanted to write a book with regular people telling their stories of how they "woke up" and saw what was going on with the government. She was upset because I declined to work on the book. She wouldn't have liked what I wrote anyway because it would have involved CT. After that she did not like me.
