    Your post was tripe. Just 40 years ago you could live in a major metro area, with all of 3-4 channels available on the TV, (ABC, NBC, CBS, and PBS if you were lucky) and the daily newspaper. That was it. No talk radio for either side ........ either. Now, we literally have 1000 times more access to information, and you whine this kind of tripe about somehow still being kept in the dark by those in control.

    Ignorance is what controls you. Because you let it.

    Your original comment was tripe. Can you do better, or are we to expect more such stupidity ?

    I have a problem with "liberals are this" and "conservatives are that". From a lot of posts on this forum you would thing only deadbeats without a job are Dems, but Obama voters according to demographics were more affluent and educated than McCain voters. According to a lot of people Tea Partiers are basically dumb hicks but they actually have a higher rate of college education than the general population and are normally middle class.

    If you don't like the Wall st protests because you don't agree with them fine, but don't try to paint them as violent when there's no sign of violence whatsoever based on the broad brush based on identity politics. You do think that's fair right? If they start rioting then I agree they would be violent but someone arrested for walking in a road is not violent.

    Unions had their place in history much like a wagon wheel, try putting a wagon wheel on a new F-250 4x4 and see how that works.

    I find it interesting that you say this just as people are attacking collective bargaining rights, Presidential canidates mentioning getting rid of minimum wage, special interests groups are pushing for the easing of child labor laws, politicians not only allow but support jobs going overseas, and wages have remained stagnant for decades.

    I mean, this is kind of saying we don't need an armed forces, WWI was the war to end all wars as the Germans roll into Poland.

    And yet with just the Wall Street rally, the number of arrests has exceeding all the arrests of Tea Party folks since the Tea Party came into being ... by a factor of what ? 10 ? 20 ?

    Bet your bippy you will see more of this between now and Nov 2012.

    How about those conservative flash mobs trashing convenience stores, btw ?

    They walked on a road....honestly eighty that has nothing to do with violence. Like I said, okay, they apparently disregard orders to not walk on roads you happy? We can say the Occupy Wall Street crowd will walk on a road even when prohibited.

    Bet your bippy you will see more of this between now and Nov 2012.
    Protests? I'm sure you will. This is a big election in the middle of a recession, I would be suprised if we had no protests.

    I have no idea what you're talking about honestly.

    For the two who posted that they are not familiar with this growing phenomenon, I will not derail this thread with it.

    For another thread then.

    But if curious, Google "Flash mob robberies". 1,040,000 hits in 0.06 seconds. All from this year. Violent liberalism close to you.

    I don't see how those people are displaying any sort of political leanings besides anarchism.
