    The OWS movement is still complaining about wealth distribution and few are actually doing anything about it. You want to redistribute wealth, stop giving it to the top 1%. What good do the OWS people think sleeping in parks is going to do when these companies products are still flying off shelves?

    I'm sure you're still counting the ones that are Bush's fault, but like typical conservatives lump all of them along with the spending on Obama. When will we see some honesty from the right? Don't bother answering, I know it's never.

    15 House bills not considered by Senate

    Then there is the issue of Norquist which is another strawman and diversion from the obama record. Here is a great article that the Democrats want people to forget

    Democrats stuck on tax rates: Democrats are stuck on tax rates while GOP seeks reform - OrlandoSentinel.com

    All this in an attempt to divert from the fact that Obama had total control of the Congress and WH his first two years and we do we have to show for it. Liberal lies and distortions along with a very poor record


    How about some liberal honesty for a change?
    We already know what kind of reform the Republicans are suggesting - that's why their bills aren't going anywhere - Thanks to God!

    They want to stick it to seniors and the poor, but continue to protect the rich and corporations. I wonder when the middle-class Reps are going to figure it out? Nah, they're too dumb to do so.

    Everything is Bush's fault in your world and nothing even to this day is Obama's fault

    Don't forget starving kids as well as polluting the air in your rants, all of which diverts from the Obama record. Amazing how Obama's economic policies were passed in early February 2009 but for some reason still haven't generated positive results and still isn't his fault

    The OWS movement was not formed to end capitalism, it came about to increase awareness of the economic injustice that has been institutionalized over the last 30 years. Its all about increasing public debate, which they are doing. Look at the number of threads on this forum alone about the OWS protests that has grown from NY to nationwide, to worldwide, in just a couple months.

    That is not how the 1% is taking their money (sorry, while I do support OWS I have to use "1%" in the loosest terms). If they buy a product they are freely "giving" them their money. The problem is the Fed taking it from them and giving it to the 1% with their monetary policies.

    LOL!!! You are a fan of Adam Carolla???

    I think this helps explain why Republicans are so alarmed about the OWS protests:

    "After riding the Tea Party wave, Republicans are on the defensive as the movement draws attention to income inequality—an issue that the GOP has done little to address. If Occupy continues to stoke public anger against the wealthy, Republicans could see a favorable election forecast quickly turn against them."

    I believe as usual you attack the messenger and ignore the message. Far too many have forgotten that this entitlement mentality today destroys self reliance and initiative. I cannot believe what I keep reading from you. You ought to know better. The jealousy of people camping out on Wall Street shows just how bankrupt the liberal ideology is and the entitlement mentality that has been created in the youth attending those rallies.
