    Re: More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

    The only people who legitimately fear the current uprising on Wall Street are the financial institutions and their stockholders. We normal Janes and Joes ar too busy applauding their efforts to fear them.

    As for those saying 'quit their jobs to protest on-going': Has it occurred to you that there may be enough people holding this sentiment to use their vacation time to camp-out on Wall Street in shifts? I was looking at one of their websites and it appears they are coordinating this very thing. No wonder the financial institutions are worried that this may well bring their central role in our economic decline into the view of most voters and make it impossible for the pundits and MSM outlet, FoxNews, to convince people they don't deserve tax breaks, bailouts or to be able to regulate themselves.
    I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.

    The rightwing celebrates it's fears. They're so scared, they have to make threats of violence.

    What has Wall Street to be afraid of? There is trillions of dollars in the banks not being invested because of the present US environment and that money, like many businesses and corporations, will just move elsewhere. The Left has been complaining about businesses leaving the country while at the same time harassing them and demanding more. Goofy? You bet!

    Sure. Chase the money out of the country. It will be very welcome elsewhere. Those people who use their vacation time to camp on sidewalks will probably be spending a great deal more time there in the future.

    Perhaps you included the wrong link. I don't see any treat of violence there.

    Why should the right be 'scared the the rich are going to run'?

    It's the bozos out on the streets who will suffer.

    It seems only a leftist feels fear so easily, just as you admitted to earlier.
