    The Tea Party was begun with a broadcast on CNBC. Their first protests were promoted by FauxNews and funded by republican PACs

    Just like taking a post from HERE and presenting it as the goals of the board itself.
    I dunno, it seems to match up with everything else I've seen people present as demands.

    Yes I deny it. Just as I deny the left wing is mostly totalitarian, racist, communistic and utopian brain washing fanatics.
    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.

    Re: More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

    Since everybody has to make a living to eat and survive, who is paying the bills for these people to stand out there for weeks?

    Some of the younger ones don't look old enough to have worked enough time to earn unemployment, so how are these people surviving?

    Another thing, if capitalism is gone, how will they buy their next video game? They won't have the money for it nor will it be on sale because the company will be gone.

    So to you wearing a gun (legally) is considered "violence"?

    They are not very bright whiners and complainers having a temper tantrum because daddy government won't give them a job which suits their qualification fantasies. Get a degree in Victorian poetry, psychology, or political philosophy and the job opportunities are going to be slim. But these people don't appear to have much education in any area.

    Well, it's largely knid of silly, and I do worry about anyone who would wear one. The head can't be that clear.

    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.

    They can't refute the OWS protestors arguments, so they have to make up stuff in order to attack the messengers

    The fact is, the wingnuts agree with many of the OWS protesters complaints (ex Wall St bailouts, bank foreclosing on houses without having title, outsourcing, etc)
