    B. Franklin: "Freedom and democracy, security here, we can't have either . . ."

    " . . . if we don't have both."

    Well, this is what Pelosi is doing in Asia. She inspires the Taiwanese with wise words from our nation's former presidents, such as Benjamin Franklin.

    Probably should take the mask off. I think she's rebreathing too much CO2.

    Pelosi has no right to put Benjamin Franklin's words in her mouth when she doesn't even follow it when she's in the US.
