    You can see the police lead them in calmly. News reports even said the cops let them in at first before they could change their story.

    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.
    My wife and I are planning to hit the LA protests in just this way. As long as it doesn't start to get hairy, because I'm wired in a way that makes me respond very negatively to the way protesters are "dealt with" at protests. My wife forbids me to get shot!

    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.
    So basically what you're saying is "if youre getting raped, the best thing to do is try to enjoy it".

    They'll stop as soon as you stop resisting.

    You are getting raped?

    How so?

    And please don't interpret what I am "basically saying". That only leads to confusion. Just go with what I am saying, ok?

    Ok.

    Seems to me yohre saying that those responsible screwed us fair and square and that if we don't just accept it they will punish us by pulling MORE money out of a struggling economy.

    Shut up and take it or we'll make it worse seems to be what you are saying.

    I resent financial bullying, like what occurred in electrical deregulation a while back. Where the justification for gouging was NIMBYism that made it impossible to build new power plants.

    Only problem with that is that it was power company demands to be able to build whatever types of plants they wanted to build wherever they wanted to build them that people objected to.

    They wanted to build one directly upwind of a school here, for example, because it was cheaper for them to do so.

    Not exactly the NIMBYism they were referring to.

    I think you should let your conscious guide you - don't limit yourself.
    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.

    My conscious IS what's limiting my conscience.

    Been close enough to police brutality to know how I respond to it.

    See, the badge doesn't give you a pass to act any way you want in my book.

    So me and my book stay away from people with guns who think it DOES.

    Yes, the working class is being raped

    Financially

    I must have missed them. Where are the OWS protestors wearing a gun and holding a sign that threatens spilling of blood??? Please post a link to your evidence of this?
