    The right, by and large, does not support bailouts. The Left obviously does.
    Fanny and Freddie didn't bailout the banks. bush* did

    The wingnuts on the right want to pretend that it wasnt bush* who gave out all the free money, and he didn't give it to hippies

Something to do tomorrow to better themselves that they can't and won't just stand around for weeks on end not working to better themselves? I sure hope they asked for free stuff. Wait..they didn't? Well ****, the comparison just falls right on its face. Don't you just hate that?

    That's a week long protest.

    This has been proven to be completely false.

    Health care for all is a liberal tenet? Damn it is good to be a liberal. It's not a liberal protest. Either they are being sarcastic or they are trying to make a point (I think they may be talking about abortion when they say "Health care for all").

    Re: More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

    Here's a thought about these protests....They are GOING to become violent. At some point, this is inevitable. We have multiple wars that most in this country oppose, and declining lifestyle due to economic woes to boot. We have a system of banking that owns the majority of realestate in this country, as in, the physical property. And they can, it seems, take what you thought you had bought away from you at any time, for numerous reasons. We have had various movements in the past 6-8 years now, aimed at getting different people in office, people that will withstand the lobbyists' best charms, only to receive more "business as usual" results. Anyone in here ever hear of a little group called the Weathermen? They also had a problem with unpopular war, and they did **** about it, violently, in the 60s and 70s. I would say it's only a matter of time before it comes to americans bombing american soil again, and I would also say that our current administration (as if there is ever any change in administration to necesitate the need to include the word "current") knows this. It's why the keyt components of the patriot act remain in place, so that our law enforement and military can better crush any and all civil disobedience, be it in the form of "violent" protestation, or in the form of blowing up the convenience store down the street.

    Re: More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

    It was my understanding that the intent behind these protests was to try to hamstring Wallstreet, since it is becoming more and more clear who it is that runs our government...?
