    You can plow snow. You can't (last time I checked) plow a protestor.

    Snow not being cleaned up is the city's fault.The protest was not the fault of those who own the dock companies, but some of the dock workers and protesters.It would be like trying to get paid for a mess you helped cause.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    100 dock workers block access to 10,000 other dock workers...and none should get paid?

    sounds like making an excuse for the company to save some money.

    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    I think OWS is missing the target on this one. What they are doing is hurting workers, not the businesses, shareholders and 1% they are looking for. It seems more like they are after the 89%...those with jobs.
    This proves their mission is only to disrupt, not to protest.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Which is terrorism, and with the new bill they want to pass, the terror suspect-detention bill, they could lock up the OWS forever. It all makes sense now.

    Honestly though...that bill is scary.
