    Not at all, but I do note the Allinsky tactic of attempting to apply your vile assertion to me for thinking that OWS is a stupid venture that will tar those involved as more of this stupidity goes on.

    Yeah, the tactics are now very transparent - probably because Alynski's stuff is now so readily available from Amazon to pdf's on the internet.
    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.

    From above, "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."

    The fallacy of the unassailable....Just because they are in their 80's, he is a WWII vet, and they marched in the 60's doesn't absolve them of stupidity for being involved in this crap...

    Try again. Maybe you have a child you can hold up, that ought to be totally above board as an argument.....

    The rightwingers can't refute anything said, so all they can do is engage in childish name-calling and willful ignorance, neither of which is much of a stretch for them

    The problem is, these people seem to be protesting monetary inequality. What they out to be focusing in on is inequality of voice in this country. But no, let's just focus on the money. Which is laughably stupid.

    The rightwing is working furiously to pretend that they don't understand what the protests are about


    Can't blame them. They're just doing what their corporate slavemasters told them to do
    Journalists Funded By ‘Vulture Capitalist’ Paul Singer Campaign To Smear Wall Street Protests | ThinkProgress
    The campaign the marginalize and destroy the growing 99 Percent Movement is in full swing, with many in the media attempting to smear the people participating in the “occupation” protests across the country. However, several of the so-called journalists deriding, and in some cases sabotaging the movement, have paychecks thanks to a billionaire whose business practices have been scorned as among the worst of the financial elite.

    As the New York Times has documented, Paul Singer, a Republican activist and hedge fund manager worth over $900 million, has emerged as one of the most important power brokers within the GOP. Now, it appears that the reporters financed by Singer are at the forefront of efforts to tarnish the reputation of 99 Percent Movement demonstrators:
    Journalist Pushing To Discredit Occupy Wall Street Is Funded By Singer’s Think Tank. Josh Barro, a journalist who has attacked the 99 Percent Movement in the National Review and the New York Daily News, draws a salary from the Wriston Fellowship at the Manhattan Institute, a big business advocacy think tank in New York. Barro makes the same tired arguments, that anti-Wall Street protesters are too inarticulate and “extreme” to be taken seriously. Singer is the chairman of the Manhattan Institute, and even oversees the Wriston annual fundraiser.
