    Did the protestors have permits to march across the bridge?

    So you promote chaos to achieve your ends?

    700 is a pretty big number IMO and if that is say 10 percent of the total number then there must be at least 7000, I would guess. The more people show up the less(peaceful)room on the sidewalk there will be.
    Your estimate being neither here nor there, are you saying that libs can't hold large protests without getting violent?

    In some people minds Congress is probably just Wall Streets sock puppet anyway.
    Is that your thought? And if it is, then you support chaos, and anarchy to achieve your ends?

    Nice to know.

    Was not about the protest on the bridge.. this happened days ago before the bridge.

    And yes they need permits.. and if they dont... arrest them just like everywhere else in the world. My problem is that they do have permits according to what I understand and yet the NYPD is doing their best to make them break said permits so they can be arrested... and since when is it legal to pepper-spray people who are non-violent and behind barriers?

    Wait what? This happened when they ignored police orders to not obstruct the Bridge....What are you talking about?

    And yes they need permits..
    So then, it was not a "legal" march as you stated.

    and if they dont... arrest them just like everywhere else in the world.
    they did, and you called them thugs for doing such.

    My problem is that they do have permits according to what I understand and yet the NYPD is doing their best to make them break said permits so they can be arrested
    "According to what you understand?" Link please.

    and since when is it legal to pepper-spray people who are non-violent and behind barriers?
    Proof of this please...You can claim what ever you want, doesn't make it true.

    The charge was levelled against calling regular people extremists, which is something you just did and something you charged other people with doing.

    Re: More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

    This is part of Obama's plan and the reason he has been pushing for divisions between the rich and poor.

    The really sad thing is, as I watch the interviews with protesters it becomes clear they are all 100% brainwashed and misinformed getting all the facts wrong and they miss the big picture.

    For one thing I saw one of this idiots claim that 1% of the rich control 46% of the wealth.

    WRONG,

    The wealthiest 1 percent of the population earn 19 per*cent of the income but pay 37 percent of the income tax. The top 10 percent pay 68 percent of the tab. Meanwhile, the bottom 50 percent—those below the median income level—now earn 13 percent of the income but pay just 3 percent of the taxes.

    These fools don't seem to understand that the wealthy crate the majority of the jobs.

    The protesters say they are fashioning there protest after Muslim Spring.

    Well bad news because many of those uprisings ended in serious violence and the loss of life.

    These crazies need to stop listening to Obama's push for class warfare he could lead them into something they cannot win.

    I think when the break the law they need serious jail time, not just a slap on the limp wrist fine.

    Don't think for one minute that I deel this way because I am somehow rich. That is almost funny. I feel this way because the wackos can have their own opinion but they cannot have their own facts.

    They distort everything and what they don't distort they either get wrong, just make it up, or repeat something some other dumb-ass like Obama said.

    Re: More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

    Exactly. They are being led like sheep.

    Steve McCann has it right here...

    The United States, faced with its worst crisis in sixty-five years, has at the helm a radical political class, as personified by Barack Obama, who have chosen a path trod by so many despots in mankind's recent history. Barack Obama and his fellow-travelers are exploiting the fear and desperation of a growing number of citizens amid gaping fissures in American society in order to retain and expand their control over the populace.
    Human societies are held together by the most fragile of cords. Whenever unrelenting internal or external challenges abound, thereby placing excessive stress on the foundation of any society, the key determination as to whether chaos ensues is most often in the hands of the society's leaders. They can choose to exploit the circumstances in order to satisfy their lust for power, or they can embrace a course of action and policies to rally the citizenry into collectively overcoming the crisis at hand, regardless of the fractures in that society.
    American society is no longer the cohesive and determined entity that accomplished so much over the past centuries; it is extraordinarily susceptible to manipulation by unscrupulous ideologues.

    Why would I? I have stated why I made my comment. Why are you trying attribute something to me that I did not say nor intend? Are you unable to debate me where I am at instead of by putting words in my mouth?

    Yes, I am speaking about this through a political lens, but seriously are you trying to paint yourself as anything other Jet? That's a good one, right down to the attack you level here.

    Yea, but J-mac, wasn't it posters on this site who used photos from Tea Party demonstrations by non-tea party members put in place simply for photo ops holding racist signs to go against the tea party, who claimed that the "tea baggers" were nothing but racist thugs?

    I seem to think I do recall that, and if necessary, will start naming names.
