    SO? Do we have any numbers or not?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Did you look ? Do you even know of anyone who counts, or where someone registers as OWS ? They have no results where things are measured, except as arrests, property damage, police overtime costs, etc.

    Guess who owns those numbers

    If no one counts, how can anyone claim more?

    I don't see anything close from OWS, not even with biased sympathetic MSM reporting on it.....

    I've seen those numbers disputed, but even if true, would not give us a true picture of the overall size.

    Well, here we go...down the rabbit hole of nothing is ever empirical enough for you. I tell ya what Joe, instead of your usual tactics of debate that go down this road of frustration, why don't you be crystal clear, and tell me what would suffice for you?

    It doesn't?? If Rosa Parks were part of a mob do you feel her name would be so revered today? Perhaps you should take a moment to consider that.
    MLK was a part of a mob.

    Really it's irrelevant. I know it's not your arguement. Our right to protest does not matter if it includes 10 million, 100,000, 10,000, 100 or even 1.

    Actually it isn't. It is relevant when the OWS supporters try and bring legitimacy to their protest by saying things like they do. Pretending to represent not just a majority of people, no, but 99%. And when those in here like Boo try to muddy the waters by comparing turn out to that of tea party events, in some sad attempt to parity, and comparison when there really is little.

    Not one poster in here including myself says that is the case, so you can stop building that man of straw right now. The comparison is made like I said because the OWS supporters are grasping for anything that would lend legitimacy to their misguided cause, and will stoop to any and all dishonesty to do such as well.

    99% was likely closer than "Mission Accomplished".

    The point being, most all people with a message that want conveyed use these types of statements.

    You do not have to agree with them for their protesting to be valid.
