    It's not only the OWS that opposes both Republican and Democric party.

Dot Com bubble created huge unexpected tax revenue from capital gains, you can't blame massive economic booms on simple income tax cuts.

    I thank you for your update on the current process of how the current sytem works.
    Not much of an update really.
    Pretty much the same sytem we had in the 50's 60's 70's 80'sand 90's
    We owe debts we pay debts, a capitalist system by a Capitalist government.
    I personally don't have a problem with this system.
    The American workers have no problem with this system, after all if you draw a paycheck taxes are taken out automaticly, with some money left for the American worker.

    However to pay debts one must have a job .. .therein lies the problem, for without jobs American workers have no paycheck, no taxes taken out, no money, without money debts draw interest gets higher and ...WELL, THE SYSTEM GOES OFFTRACK.

    It appears you are not alone in that:

    Occupy Wall Street Enjoys Higher Approval Ratings Than Either Political Party

    "With these approval stats Occupy Wall Street is faring much better in the public eye than the president and both Democrats and Republicans in Congress. Recent polls from mid September—around the time Occupy Wall Street began—showed the president with an approval rating around 40%, Congressional Democrats at 28%, and Congressional Republicans at 19%. Approval for Congress overall hit an all-time low of just 12%.

    While the poll of New York City residents on Occupy Wall Street split along party lines with more Democrats supporting the movement than Republicans, 35% of Republicans supported the movement—much better than the national approval rating for Congressional Republicans. "

    Perhaps,the meaning of this sentence is beyond your understanding ,
    Oh no, I read it right.



    This sentence means that do not focus all the blame on one political party RIGHT, LEFT OR MODERATE, do not focus all the blame on one particular president wether it is Carter, Reagan, Bush1, or Clinton or GW Bush or Obama.
    But as I noted in response to your post #1020 you stated “I couldn't help notice in a previous post you mention 3 YEARS. Was it not 8 YEARS that started this economoc drain, 6 of which was with a Republican administration and a Republican Congress?” Which sure sounds like you are blaming ‘one particular president’ as I saw no other reference to any other.

    Looks like hypocrisy to me.

    If you are looking for hypocrisy my freind try the mirror in your home.
    Please, feel free to point out the hypocrisy you accuse me of but I really don’t want to continue this pissin contest so if you do respond realize I am done.

    I was referring to physical midgets, not the intellectual midgets of 'The 99%' or even that small percentage who they actually represent.
