    J, you're just hiding again. You did not address what I said, you leaped all over the place, you see radicals everywhere. I'm sorry j, but the problem here is you, not me.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Well, I don't recall any stories of 700 Tea Partiers being arrested...We'd better be prepared, these leftists, and libs, could very well bring violence when Barry is booted from the WH, after Obama's is done stoking the division campaign he is starting now.

    Why is it assumed that these liberals (or, more relevantly, actually violent liberals) are the same ones who scolded conservatives for their use of dangerous rhetoric? By that logic, I can discredit your entire post with reference to the (largely conservative) KKK, which has undoubtedly committed vastly more violent atrocities than occupying the Brooklyn Bridge.

    This is the problem with demonizing people by broad generalization. Both sides do it way too much.

    Then perhaps you could name the grass roots organizations involved in this Tea Party campaign that existed prior to its corporate, hierarchical control.

    Yes, of course. In order to maintain a populist movement (pseudo or otherwise) the movement has to be broad. The Tea Party movement mobilized the broad right-wing, which included crazies that are now sort of spoiling the whole bunch.


    I think the existence od the tea party could COST the Republicans the next election.
    I don't think so, really. I mean the real right-wingers are psycho, but they hate the democrats way more than a Mitt Romney.

    Pepper spray... that's what I'm talking about. And note that I didn't have some knee-jerk reaction. Maybe the police were justified, maybe not. If you block the Brooklyn Bridge, you should do so with the full expectation of a facefull of pepper spray.

    And some unsolicited advice: if your intention is to have people consider what you have to say seriously, you would do well to lose the sarcastic condescending tone and insults. If your intention is to be widely reviled, carry on.

    BBC News - George Soros' sympathy for Wall Street protesters
    Billionaire investor George Soros says he can sympathise with the ongoing protests on Wall Street, which have spread to other US cities.

    He said he understood the anger at the use of taxpayers' cash to prop up stricken banks, allowing them to earn huge profits.

    A large rally is planned for Wednesday in New York City, with backing from union groups.

    More than 700 protesters were arrested on Saturday on Brooklyn Bridge.

    The demonstrations - based at Zuccotti Park, near Wall Street and the Federal Reserve - are now entering their third week.

    Answering questions during a news conference at UN headquarters on Monday, Mr Soros said: "The decision not to inject capital into the banks, but to effectively relieve them of their bad assets and then allow them to earn their way out of a hole leaves the banks bumper profits and then allows them to pay bumper bonuses."

    What because I hate the fringe, mostly white, male, racist, xenophobic right? Yes, it does say a lot about me, and I'm proud of it.

    Except this occupation goes much further then that, for the most part identifying the problems as systemic. Soros and his liberal corporate buddies are of course going to try to coopt this movement and corral it into a narrower course.
