    The Tea Party was an Astroturf organized by corporate powers and promoted by Fox News, Wall Street protesters are a real grass roots organization.

    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.

    These keep getting better and more frequent.

    Uh, it's more than Fox News, it's the entire media establishment, including MSNBC, NPR and other so-called 'liberal' media outlets.

    Re: More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

    Everyone knows Bush was a neocon, its no secret by now. Most people know a neocon is a liberal on social issues and very much into policing the world. To the most part they are conservative on economic issues but they are known to have shortcoming if social issues come into play. Some like to say they are inconsistent conservatives, but I call them not conservative at all. They buckle so fast I have trouble imagining they even stand for it at all. They surely don't support free market economics as they very much are into government intervention in the market and have trouble accepting much if any of the principles that it involves. It would probably be more accurate to say they're liberals pretending to be conservative with a fighters edge but even that seems wrong to me. In the end they aren't liberals through and through but fit far closer to liberals than conservative by any measure. I stick by what I said.

    I used to look at crap like this and use it as validation that my theory of, what ever libs accuse conservatives of is in fact what they do. Remember, how libs in the media, and in here tried, and continue to try and paint Tea Partiers as "extreme", "Violent", or worse?

    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.


    j-mac
    That's some major spin. The article didn't say anything about violence.

    By the way...I had a great Uncle in 101'st in Korea.

    Republicans spend as much as democrats. If there is any difference, it's just what they spend on.

    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.

    So Barrack Obama is a neo-con as well?

    Now neo-con, like so many other words recently, has become so debased, and so removed from its original intent, that it now means whatever the person using it wants it to mean.

    I'm just going to address this portion. Sure, techincally it is POSSIBLE. But is it likely? It is possible to win the lottery, but not likely that most will. And too often, good people can't see their real options. And it is not unreasonabel to note that the person who starts the race with a two lap headstart will likely win more often than the one who doesn't, or who is held back by some burden. So, while it is again technically true that success is POSSIBLE. It is fair to ask how likely it is? And to not praise those who get the head start too much or condemn those who have much to overcome too much. We should try and keep some perspective.
    The fact is that many went through depressions and recessions and survived to build themselves up and create better lives for themselves. In fact almost an entire generation did just that.

    Now, for some odd reason, and with no evidence whatsoever, you claim that the odds of achieving success is akin to winning a lottery.

    That''s untrue of course, as millions of people can attest, but what would you do to change the system in order that success comes more easily and with less effort?
