    If the port truckers form a union, how does that effect the OWS movement? Are you implying that they are going to make a union and then go on strike in order to disrupt shipping into the west coast as a form of showing solidarity with the OWS? That can't be what you mean.

    that would assume it has a "way" to begin with.

    Umm no, the topic was OWS. You made a jibe stating the republicans caused the banking crisis. I pointed out that Clinton signed the bill. You then kept the cart going off the path of the topic. I stopped it and won't respond to your off topic remarks.

    So you don't think begging the government to make people pay for your liberal arts degree is a form of statist authoritarianism?

    umm yes, you were the one who brought up the repeal of Glass-Steagall but now you want to forget about it because you're losing.

    No.. No... NO!

    He wants someone to get off the topic of how selfish he is for the OWS goals that he will sacrifice the well being of middle class truckers who aren't getting paid because of the OWS shenanigans..... he has STILL refused to address the topic of the unpayed truckers sitting outside of a blocked off port who need that money to support their families and they aren't going to get it because of the OWS "agenda".
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    NYC had free public college education a few decades ago. Were we authoritarian during the 1950s and 1960s?

    What about the products that aren't going to get to stores to be sold by a salesman to make his/her living. OWS was way off the mark by obstructing the ports. They need someone to direct and organize them.

    I think expecting the govt to keep it's hand off of Medicare is a rightwing delusion
