    Another 'journalist' that thinks his allegiance is not to country, but to 'world.' Which is cool, :cool:, if you are willing to give up the 'rights' granted by citizenship.

    Bob Franken: "When I’m Reporting, I am a Citizen of the World.”

    If people were labelled like meat, Franken would be stamped "by-product". Franken is to being an American as a cheap, red-dye hot dog is to a filet mignon.
