    The fact that he is going to conservative websites to find out what a liberal group thinks is pretty telling.

    It's pretty obvious he wants to dislike the movement.

Take any major union today and you should find that most efforts and resources (less what they must hold for union membership reasons) are going to political efforts. It is a cash making operation now with the full intention of further division between those in unions and those that are not, leaving in it's wake any real interest in what unions were created for in the first place.

The banks will do what congress allowes them to do...our meltdown is coming from a war that will bankrupt us if we don't start minding our own business and stop trying to "buy friendship" with other countries.

    You are failing pretty miserably at smearing people with lies. Why not try honesty?
    well, I heard about this as I was listening to NPR this morning. They were interviewing some of the leadership, who specifically referenced that list (and one made the point again about student loans); which is how I knew how to go find it.

    So I suspect you'll have to ask that well-known-right-wing-smear-machine, NPR.

    Got a link? You have not proven to be a reliable source. Kinda the opposite in fact. Who where these leaders?

    Come on...when George Soros came out in 'support' of these clowns you had to know where all of this was going.

    I am standing firm and resolute with the protesters. I want to see them protesting deep into December...January...camping on the streets and in the parks. Stay the course baby! Walk away from your jobs forever. Walk away from your classes. Keep protesting evil banks and evil corporations...and...well...apparently student loans.

    I would be most interested in reading the factual evidence you can present to support this assertion.

    I would be interested in reading actual verifiable evidence of your claims and assertions. Please do present it.

    Wow, such a large collection of DNA-challenged miscreants in the same area at the same time.

    What a great chance to thin the herd.

    I guess that would be wrong. Oh well.
