Hey Bubba, Check this out...In his own words...
Watch the video, it is awsome!Head of the AFL-CIO, Richard Trumka, says he got into the Labor movement because he wanted to promote “massive social change”, or as we all know it, socialism. Wow. That is a rather stark admission, but Beck said eventually the would start revealing their agenda out in the open.

Most never actually touch the oil. The problem is not hoarding. If I recall right, a barrel of oil changes hands (on paper) 7-8 times before it is ever used.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
IMO we would be far better off if we required you to actually take possession of anything you buy.

that is beyond stupid
no other way to put it
that someone who wants to improve our social condition must therefor be a socialist is absurd, by any measure
this is the fellow who heads an organization which seeks to improve the working conditions of union employees
having the community/state as the business owner, as would be the circumstance within a socialist society, would not do anything but make his position more difficult
you must not understand either socialism or unionism ... more likely, you don't grasp an understanding of both
"because there is something happening here and you don't know what it is, do you, Mr. Jones"?
I think it describes perfectly the fear that so many on the right seem to be expressing by going overboard to mock, ridicule and attack these demonstrations. What is it that you are afraid of with these demonstrations?
I suspect the right sees - for the first time in a long time - a public anger at the wealthy and that worries the right and scares them.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
