I am fascinated to see what these strikes could exactly lead to, especially if they spread on a massive scale. I am not exactly saying they will, but I am curious to see how much power workers can wield with large scale strikes like this considering their goals involve national policies. I am wondering when the protests for Occupy Congress will start.

    It works both ways then.

    If one pissy moaning crybaby ass little turd represents the views of all of the people....

    Then the rapists, drug addicts, vandals, and violent anarchists represent all of the Occupy Movement...

    Amiright?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Except I didn't say the represented the whole of We the People, but rather that they are of the People.

    I kind of addressed that, including how the people are not really given the ability to do it.

    They DID turn their anger to those who have caused all of this. Banksters got Glass-Steagal evicerated, and then put peoples' money into hedgefunds, and other bad investments, which collapsed. Some people lost their life savings, but banksters gave themselves bonuses for collapsing the American economy. Here is the result:

    Actually, you were trying to insult me by implying I am traitor material because I don't believe protestors, liberal or conservative, have the right to break laws.

    No, I was implying you have a large penchant for blindly following the authority and defining power through it instead of The People. But whatever.

    Disagreement is not blindness.

    The middle east uprisings included assassinations and the total ousting of the government, right? Is that what you're looking forward to here?
