    Yep... wall street is keeping those guys from making their delivery and getting paid. Paid in MONEY.... that is needed to FEED, CLOTHE, AND HOUSE their families.....

    Typical rightwing idolatry for authority. The wingnuts on the right can't bring themselves to criticize the Wall St a-holes responsible for putting millions out of work. After all, those rightwing nutbags voted for the republicans who allowed them do it by deregulating Wall St.

    Wow... a whole bunch of partisan bull**** (BTW.. Im a Centrist).... but no response to the fact that working class citizens are assed out on pay because of the actions of those who allegedly represent the working class citizen.

    Like I said, the worshipers of authoritrianism refuse to criticize their corporate masters. That's the only pay (their own) that they're concerned with.

    Interesting, the article finishes with:

    "This is a joke. What are they protesting?" said Christian Vega, who sat in his truck carrying a load of recycled paper. He said the delay was costing him $600. "It only hurts me and the other drivers.

    "We have jobs and families to support and feed," he said. "Most of them don't."
    I guess that worker isn't on your side, because this port worker doesn't support this.

    And yet STILL more deflection and STILL more avoidance and partisan bull**** instead of addressing the issue of the lost pay of the working class people.

    I am on the side of the working class folks..........why do you keep bringing up authoritarianism and "corporate masters" and all that stupid bull**** that I haven't once mentioned instead of addressing the little man?

    And the right continues it's efforts to deflect in order to avoid discussing the miilions of jobs destroyed by their corporate masters on Wall St. How sad that they have to use the same arguments that were used to justify child labor, but authoritarian syncophants will say anything to avoid criticizing the people who fund their payrolls

    Don't try that.

    FACT...Alan Greenspan and Bill Clinton dismantled the 1933 Glass-Steagall Act.
    FACT...President Bill Clinton signed legislation that removed barriers between banking, securities and insurance companies. Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (aka Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999) signed on Nov 12, 1999

    The right is not deflecting significantly, OWS is... by destroying millions of jobs. Though they do create some additional sanitation hours, I'll give 'em that.

    FACT...Presidents don't pass legislation; Congress does. The bill that dismantled Glass-Steagall was introduced by repub Phil Gramm and supported by the right and opposed by liberals
