    The picture would appear to show tens of thousands protesting. I don't believe I've heard that in the media. Biggest number was 700 arrested and you are required to extrapolate the rest of the numbers. If this was TeaBaggers it would say "Nearly 100,000
    protest Obama or Dems or Taxes." That's the way I see it.

    There's been far more violence from the right, but the wingnuts want to pretend that rightwingers like McVeigh were liberals

    I'm gonna have to remember where this one is for when I need a good laugh.

    I fart in your general direction!
    Rightwingers deny the obvious because acting stupid is not required of the willfully ignorant

    For some people, sacrificing their credibility to win an argument on the internet is worth the (very small) price.

    The picture is photo-shopped. It was put out there by rightwingers to make it appear as if the leftwing was inflating their own #'s

    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.

    Re: More than 700 arrested in Wall Street protest

    When the Tea Party first got started, IE, before it become overrun with big name republicrats...when it was mostly moderate libertarians and "ron paul" republicans, the media ignored it, as well, just as surely as it staunchly ignores Ron Paul. Not throwing in my support with any of them, mind, just pointing out that, this protest is getting a bit more attention than the tea party movement got, early on....as well it should, mind. There are many more involved in this than there were in the early tea party events.

    I'm inclined to agree with you there...republicans do tend towards physical shows of threat and violence before democrats do. But there are more, far more insidious kinds of violence than just physical.

    The protest expands:

    "Occupy Wall Street" now in 25 cities

    CBS News)

    "The movement known as "Occupy Wall Street" has spread far beyond its starting point in lower Manhattan. CBS News correspondent Bigad Shaban reports that it now has offshoots in 25 cities nationwide, and political leaders from both sides are weighing in.

    From D.C. to Alabama to Portland, demonstrators protest everything from corporate greed to joblessness to economic inequality.

    Back in N.Y., 39-year-old Jesse LaGreca is one of the more prominent voices.

    "You've got people here being told they need to face a lower standard of living, that we can't pay the wages that we used to enjoy, that the promises that were made to our grandparents are going to be broken," LaGreca said.

    World War II veteran Edward Davis and his wife, Esther, are both in their 80s, and remember marching for equality during the civil rights movement. This, they say, is just as historic for struggling Americans.

    "Not only the young but the middle class and older people, it hurts, it hurts to see all of these young people -- you know, graduating and can't get a job," Esther said.

    "The greatest country in the world, you know, that people should be wondering what is going to be tomorrow, something is wrong," Edward said."
