    I saw a story yesterday that showed the food line and noted that it was "donated". That is, provided by some group with money. Not that I'm saying that there is anything wrong with that. Then on the other hand, many did say that if outside money is being expended on the part of protests it means it's not really a grass roots thing.

    It was acceptable to the right when the president was a repub, so why is it unacceptable to the right now?

    Oh wait! That was a question that answers itself - it's OK if you're a republican

    Apparently, your distaste for this only affects you when the president is a democrat

    Unlike the hypocritical right, the left blames both parties and both bush* and Obama as the posts from leftists show. Example 1

    Solyndra is 100% Obama's baby. Bush's fault is in signing the stupid law that allowed him to blow a half billion dollars.

    Why march on Wall Street when the problem is in Washington?
    And once again, the rightwingers have to pretend that they don't know what the protesters are protesting, or even the fact that they are protesting in cities throughout the nation (not just Wall St) in order to pretend that they do know that the protesters are not protesting what's going on in Washington DC

    If the Fox poll is to be believed, this puts Grant in the %2.58 percentile. The rest of us know that what OWS is protesting. It's crystal clear.

    Whatever, the important thing this shows is wide support for this movement among both liberals and conservatives. That is what is surprising to me.

    So you'll continue to be bothered by corruption but remain silent on the present and blame it on the past. That's not uncommon response these days.

    I have already pointed out to you that this is a poll, and not reporting by Fox.

    And any moron would realize why Fox would not want to fudge a poll to show support for OWS, but it takes someone "special" to not realize that

    That's a straw man you made up. No one said that donated money means the group is not "grass roots". Stop posting fiction

    You are the only one limiting your criticism of corruption depending on who was/is president. Last time I looked, the OWS was protesting a president who was not rightwing. We're still waiting for you to be just as non-partisan

    That would make sense... I mean a few thousand people in NYC can't be cheap to feed... or to clothe, or to provide soap and water, bathrooms. It's a wonder no one's asking who these benevolent donations are coming from isn't it? I know when I go to NYC, just for lunch I'll spend $25 bucks easy. Coffee is $7 and I'm not talking Starbucks here either.
    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.
