    Now now....Youve obviously missed the memo where that only applies when the money is given to the GOP...and that somehow, even though both parties have been in bed with banks and the brokers...its only republicans at fault for everything.

    yeah.. it's a bit silly.

    i'm told that this shindig is nonpartisan, but look around and see who is trying to co-opt the "movement" and turn it partisan (Ie .. "does the GOP have something to fear from the protests?").

    that , in itself, tell me all I need to know about claims of this not being partisan or political.

    I think it is a happy gathering of communists, socialists, idealogues, political opportunities and morons. Sadly...its hard to tell them apart.

    Agreed. Look at the protesters. Are there any quantity of signs, if any at all, that fret about the debt being passed on to our kids ? If the bailouts were such a heinous thing, it would be because of their cost. Lost in the translation with these pretend protesters is that we have very little relative debt because of bailouts. We do have a ton of debt because of nanny-state and flat-out give-aways that were Stimulus, and now the proposed JOBS, which is just more make-work waste. These mobs of idiots are not protesting for less "free-stuff" though either. They are protesting to get more of it.

    Take a good look at the protesters. They are the American parasite class.

    If all commodity trading has the same economic impact on the poor and elderly in fact on any one then it should be regulated to lessen the impact on every one, it's nothing more then one of the ways that allows the rich to economically plunder from those who have no choice but to pay the price or sit in a cold house or give up eating

    Let me ask you some thing does and i don't mean to sterotype anyone but I notice what could be a reading comprehension problem with some not all conservatives the reason I bring this up is the article I quoted said the price of oil to increase as much as 50% and then I added doesn't that suck? Lets say the article was wrong and speculation only added 20% to the price of gallon would that still suck? What is youre honest opinon?

    Please don't be offended but I think maybe some of the protestors might be upset by some thing called speculation, Did you know that people of means can buy oil, never touch it,smell it,store it or do any thing more then hold on to it until they create an artifical shortage and then sell it at a huge profit? That profit causes the price of oil to increase as much as 50% doesn't that suck?

    I don't claim that every rich person steals by speculating but it makes you wonder if they were some how not involved in stealing the heat from someone's grandma's house or the food from some poor kid's table. Any how you are not involved in that type of
    thievery are you? If I was I would be more then happy to help those less fortunate then myself, I mean I could have been without being remotely aware of it. Just in case I made a donation to OWS

    Lets see you think that the Presidents energy policy is FUBAR, and you really think that drill baby drill is the answer? Do tyou think that more oil will curtail speculators? Do you think that we will ever run out of oil for the drill baby drillers to drill and when we do would you rather have some in the ground that we can drill for or would you rather be paying opec prices. Lets say that life essential need products "oil being one" speculation is regulated would that mean that we should sit by idily and wait for other alternative fuels to be developed? Look into the future the one that you and I may not be part of and think hard about what those who will be part of that future need to survive

    The cost of doing business in the United States is so high, that most middle class folks aren't liquid enough to compete with the big boys. Gotta spend money to make money.

    We also have debt due to waging wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia, Libya, and a number of other places. In general this "War on Terror" has caused a good chunk of our debt.

    Intersting! Those are the same people that you call racists for disagreeing with the Libbos.
