    Re: More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

    Seeing someone wearing a gun is just something people are scared of because of their own fear issues. It in no way means they're threating violence or being violent. People that claim these people are threating violence by wearing a gun are merely projecting their own fears.
    Not it's because America has a history of crazy people unloading clips into crowds.

    I am not too sure that was the point.

    Not likely. Goals are so old school.

    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.

    I wanted to address this separately j. I really don't believe this. Reminds me of my brother-in-law who is a doctor. He says exactly the same. he's wrong. His grandfather paid for his education. His grandmother on the other side gave him 5,000 a month for living expenses. That alone is someone giving to him. He likely also had friends and loved once who helped in all manner of ways as he went to school, all helping him achieve. I know I did. My wife was an emense help. A teacher who failed me when I was in HS left a seed that helped. Good liberals helped me see what I could not see before, that I could be. Church step up a couple of times, and some friends were there when things got the toughests, giving time, support, and times money. Anyone who says they did much of any major accomplish all by him or herself is likely mistaken.

    Indicative of violence? What does that mean?

    What violence most are familiar with, or threats of violence, have come from Acorn members and Union thugs,

Their numbers swelled by thousands on the weekend when the working stiffs, with jobs, could get days off to participate.
    Have you ever watched these people speak, or looked at the signs they're carrying?

    They've taken stupidity to entirely new levels. Who want want to hire any one of them?

    Who were these corporations and how were MSNBC and the others involved? Where are these 'grass roots stories' from MSNBC?

    Please post because I haven't found any site with messed up signs. They actually come across as pretty articulate.
