    Just tired of the blame Bush crowd which you seem part of.
    You, good sir, were the one who brought him into this conversation, so I suggest you finish your lie you were trying to publish on this site.

    Do they ask if you've ever attended a protest? Are they allowed to discriminate in hiring in this way?

    I was looking for a job when I found the job I had for 35 years and earned every dime I made.
    Conserv, I respect your opinion but honestly, there would be no protests if people were able to go out and find jobs. 35 years ago you could start a decent career straight from high school, if you graduated college, you had some very good prospects. Nowadays you graduate with a Masters and can't find employment. I graduated, worked at a very good Brokerage firm and did well until it went belly up. I was unemployed for about 5 months while searching for another job and (thankfully) I found one. I can completely sympathize with people just out of college unable to find work.

    I do think your perspective is totally relevant and true....35 years ago but it's a little condescending as unemployment rates among the younger age groups is much higher than the rest of the population to act like they should just go out and get a job.

    Sorry but your daughter is an idiot because I doubt that she even knows what she is protesting. Instead of wasting her time there do some good and give all her money away so stop with the BS. What purpose does the protest do and just think how that protest is going to look on their resume.
    Do you mean to tell me that taking questionable mortgaged backed securities and having one of the rating firms rate these as AAA is not a SCAM??? How about using computers to make millions of trades per second. How about using the commodities markets to speculate rather than used as tool for businesses to plan future business?

    I thought you might be at least fairly intelligent and now I know you are just arrogant, let me help you again she is a "doctor" she would have to look in the mirror and fire herself, she worked hard mostly putting herself through school it took her twelve years to achieve her doctrate. Unlike you she is a real American who knows that it is our differences that make us a great nation. She knows it's not a flashy car or a 6 bedroom house that determines the value of a person. Your superior condescending attitude says all that is needed to be said about you.

    The occupy wall street protestors will determine the out come of the 2012 elections, please repeat for me what you think about the demonstrators

    You didn't answer a simple question,

    "Since you felt Clinton was to blame this would indicate that you have the realization that it was a bad thing, no?"

    NOT THE MIDDLE CLASS
    Once again you provide unsubstantiated opinion in response to documented evidence.

    I provided links to back up my historical references, and you only provide unsubstantiated opinion, again. I am noticing a pattern in your posting.
