    I think the regular Democrat/liberal/progressive really doesn't know about Alinsky which is why they say things like he's the 'boogeyman' used by conservatives to create fear. They don't realize that Alinsky's writings are quite popular in colleges and the tactics have been used for decades. Alinsky isn't in the closet and neither is Soros. Their influence is real and factual.

    We also study Leni Riefenstahl in film making class. Doen't make us goose stepping Nazi's though.

    Oh and the 1937 Degenerate Exhibition Hitler put on.

As the last marchers left the Mall, the grounds were spotless. Now compare that to the filth and garbage piling up around the stinky morons in NYC. The Tea Party movement embraces individual responsibility and accountability while the NYC twerps are preaching collectivism and entitlements......its no wonder the NYC fools are wallowing in their own crap, they are waiting for someone else to clean up their trash.
    It's always been clear that it was middle class people, like the Tea Party members, who were the real environmentalists, and never the left wing loons.

Now that cold weather in NY is coming, that's only going to be more prominent.

    It doesn't sound as rosie as some want to make it seem. I did find without much issue on YouTube (searched for Occupy Wall Street) that there are some negative views apparently.
    Any of those protesters in the videos look sufficiently qualified to be Barrack Obama's financial advisor.

    fascinating. the bank bailouts, the auto bailouts, Obamacare... none of those actually passed?

    you need to get this information to major news outlets right away. I'm sure they will be fascinated to hear about how they've been reporting these events all wrong.

    OWS is a true grass-roots movement, taking on a serious issue.
    yeah! like, corporations and greed and corporations and.... stuff! and things that are like, bad, and stuff! and I shouldn't have to pay back my college loans....and corporations being all corporationy and stuff!

    good thing I'm neither an extreme lefty nor do I live off of tax-dollars.

    my policial/social views vary from the left to moderate, and even some right-wing.

    the amount of money I put back into the City's coffers is almost ten-times my yearly salary.

    Jeeze, we're still talking Alinsky here? Lacking proof of recent events using tactics penned by Alinsky it is just a conspiracy theory.

    If find the mention of Soros interesting. I seem to remember Liberals dismayed and Conservatives cheering after the Citizens United case was decided. I'd be more than happy to limit the influence of billionaires and the wealthy in the political process but it's obvious you guys just want to silence the person when the message doesn't align with your own.

    I would agree - that's why I gave mega the benefit of the doubt and didn't push the issue. However, those of us who have been on internet forums see it all the time, so I'm a little surprised this is all new information. It's not like Alinsky's name's never been used before on this forum ya know?
    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.
