    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    -- Adam Smith

    "Except that the OWS children are the actual "drumbeaters" in the park that are anarchists, Marxists, Communists, Union hacks, ACORN paid professional protesters and agitators, rapists, thieves, and generally sociatial misfits that unless they come to something like this would rarely see the outside of their mom and dad's basements. Oh, and they **** and piss in the open all over, and they need a bath."End Quote


    I'm certain that you meant Republicans. I recognize the character traits.

Major issues like the growing inequity of income distribution, Wall Street greed and the methods used to fuel it, and the growing gap between rich and poor have wide support among the American people.

    I suspect that some Americans have allowed themselves to be led by the nose by the drumbeaters of the far right who want to demonize the OWS participants and paint them as anarchists pooping and peeing all over America and in bad need of a bath. Others look deeper than that stupidity and see real issues that need to be addressed.
    The one term Marxist president Obama knows that class warfare works. He has been agitating for this. The OWS guys are his Brown Shirts. It is not going away. He is hoping some of his troops will take a bullet for his re-election efforts. Personally I think a large number of arrests and prison time are appropriate.

    Definately a reasoned argument. It's obvious Obama is a Marxists because.......it's obvious he's cordinating OWS because......and it's obvious that income inequity is a Marxists plot to anger the masses against those that have.

    Is Obama Marxist? Or is he a Nazi?
    You're getting your stuff all mixed up.

    Well, when I work, I don't receive my pay from a centralized source of income distribution. The employer is looking to fill a position I am qualified to do, and we agree that I will do the job for the wage he is willing to pay. If I don't like the wage, I can either try and get more, or accept it, or don't take the job.

    This idea that you make more than I do, so you should have some of your earned wealth taken from you and given to me just because that is what is in some peoples eyes "fair" is BS!

    The minute this country starts moving toward equality of income, all boats sink, and we are no longer America.

    Is there a difference other than degree of totalitarianism?
