    Actually, class warfare is a common way for budding socialist regimes to rise to power. And the liberal left has been beating that drum for a long time....got your Che t-shirt on?

    So what about age distribution? Does that exist since there's no single distribution point for age?

    Yes. But those differences are beyond the scope of this thread. Check you local library. Start at the information desk. They can be remarkably helpful.

    What does Occupy Wall Street want? I'm guessing by all the drums, they're waiting for a saxaphone and a smooth bass line to come in.

    I think they want all the people who have money to give it to me, and I distribute it among the poor as I see fit.

    I could dig it. That would totally rock to have a country-wide persistent jam session.

    Ok, so what you are saying is in the method to track median incomes, and disparities. The language is skewed. So then tell me how would you plan to distribute income more fairly, taking for the moment that it doesn't involve any central planning?

    from j-mac


    Oh, so only NOW when the polling is not in favor of a cause or issue you agree with all of the sudden its about the question, and how it can be manipulated to push the poll eh? Amazing.
    I have no idea what you are ranting on about regarding my views. Perhaps if you reprint the views that contradict what I stated, you may have a point. Lets see you do that.

    (HM) If you get beyond the issue of the actual demonstrators involved in OWS and get to the issues that are behind the anger, the American public does indeed support those issues.
    - j-macOf course don't look at the people that are the FACE of the demonstrations, killing jobs, raping women, robbing fellow protesters, destroying property, and breaking the law....Nooooooo!
    And your issue with my comments is what exactly? I stated clearly that the American public supports the issues behind the protests. Of course, when you and others on the far right keep insisting that the people involved in these demonstrations are one very narrow slice of the population, and not at all true, it becomes clear why you want that FACE upon the demonstrators.


    (HM)Major issues like the growing inequity of income distribution
    jmac -There is NO such thing as "income distribution" so what the hell are you talking about?
    Perhaps you should google the phrase "income distribution" and see what you get? Perhaps you should google the phrase along with "wikipedia" and see what you get. Perhaps in the world you inhabit, you have excluded the reality of income distribution. For those here in the real world, there clearly is income distribution.

    Income distribution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In economics, income distribution is how a nation’s total economy is distributed amongst its population.[1]
    Income distribution has always been a central concern of economic theory and economic policy. Classical economists such as Adam Smith, Thomas Malthus and David Ricardo were mainly concerned with factor income distribution, that is, the distribution of income between the main factors of production, land, labour and capital.
    Modern economists have also addressed this issue, but have been more concerned with the distribution of income across individuals and households. Important theoretical and policy concerns include the relationship between income inequality and economic growth.
    The distribution of income within a community may be represented by the Lorenz curve. The Lorenz curve is closely associated with measures of income inequality, such as the Gini coefficient.
    So it seems your quarrel is not just with me but there are others in line ahead of me... and you can start with Adam Smith. You know who he is... right?







    That GAP is fueled, made larger, and by plan I think instituted by your guy Obama and his failed policies for the past three years, almost 6 years if you include when congress and senate were taken over by liberal demos.
    You have the right to "think" anything you want to think. But as to proving it, step up to the plate and take a swing at it. That would be something to see.



    Just another political hack journalist that used to work for the WaPo, and Washingtonian Magizine...So a liberal opinion backs your spew of talking point pap eh....I am shocked.
    Nice job of attacking the messenger and leaving the message untouched, unschathed and unchallenged. And in other news, the sun rose in the east this morning.


    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.
    Again, the extremists and corporate sycophants of the far right deem it necessary to paint all the persons involved in this gross cartoon characterization. That is by design and is intended to separate the protestors from working people. It ignores the reality of the total composition of the crowds far beyond the limited nature of your characterization.

    Again, you and other extremists on the far right have deemed in necessary to do everything in your power to mischaracterize this group by putting a false face upon it. I have little doubt your corporate masters approve of this and urge you to continue.
