    I'm asking if your criteria applies to the OWS / Union crowd or just the tea party. It's a simple question...
    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.

    The OWS hasn't made any use of violence or violent threats. You're babbling again

    Very cool! Be careful, but know that we the citizens appreciate, and are proud of, your efforts

    Yes, I would also be opposed to the OWS protestors wearing a gun and holding a sign calling for the spilling of blood.

    Would an OWS protestor wearing a gun and holding a sign calling for the spilling of blood also be a threat of violence?

    Rightwingers have to make up stuff in order to have an argument

    Was the teabagger who wore a gun a held a sign calling for the spilling of blood making a threat of violence?

    IMO, Yes! Have you seen any of that in this protest?

    I haven't been paying much attention to it. But if I do, I'll let you know.

    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.

    You just said "OK" and then more 'seems to me you're saying" stuff. I cannot debate with anyone who who makes up arguments for me and then responds to them. Instead you can continue to debate with yourself.
