    This is the most effective - and cheapest - election gains the Republicans can possibly ask for.

    These are truly pathetic people. This is what happens when you don't bother to raise your children.
    Yeah, taking interest in the Republic and participating in our time honored tradition of protest and dissent certainly is a sign of poorly raised children.

    Some may be. I do think there is a valid overall point to the protest, however. And that is protest against the corporate capitalist model we now find ourselves under.

    Hmm....
    Well, these poorly raised children have set up...
    -Their own food tables
    -First aid for the occasional injury (like tripping, police encounters, bomb shells)
    -Their own website
    -Their own news journal
    -And probably more.
    So I guess being poorly raised means you were taught to be responsible and organized. Glad I was poorly raised then.

    And maybe if they put that effort into finding a job, or building a career, or making better products (etc) instead of whining about what someone else doesn't do for them they would bet better off.

    Their whole mantra seems to be what will someone else do for me, not what I can do for myself.

    I agree, these tools are astroturf.
    I love the smell of burning moonbat in the morning.

    We have enough cogs. We now need thinkers.

    Then you are obviously getting their "mantra" from somebody other than them, because I don't really hear that coming from anywhere but the conservative media stream.

    And maybe if you put effort into keeping up with the times, you would realize that the job market isn't faring all that well. These people ARE putting effort into finding jobs, building careers, and making better products. I hope you realize that their hard work isn't earning them enough. If they were to make millions off of their pay, they'd need to work at least 40 hours a day, and unfortunately, that's not possible. Those millionaires and billionaires don't need all that money for working 6-10 hours a day.

    LOL, have you heard them? You'd have more luck finding a cohesive thought along Haight-Ashbury in 1965.
