    Re: More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

    Being right of center is not any more pyscho than being left of center. Sure, each side has those who go so far as to question them in a lot of ways. But I would not paint either side of center with too broad a brush.

    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.

    Ignorance is nothing to be proud of, no matter your political views.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    No it's not. I said "real," as in "really". You deny that there is a significant extreme right wing that is mostly white, male, racist and xenophobic?

    I don't deny that there is a significant extreme left wing that is mostly white, male, communist and socialist

    The extreme left wing is most certainly not mostly white, or communist
