    Bad analogy.

    The point being, most all people with a message that want conveyed use these types of statements.
    Doesn't make them valid, or even comparable.

    Then again some people use straw man arguments like:

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

    Sure, because you don't like it. Neither were exactly spot on were they?

    Basically it's your only justification so far.

    I make a point, you dismiss it without any real comment and then think you have the high road? Really, your complaint is with them using 99%?

    How many Tea Party meetings do you suppose tea was actually served at?

    No Perry, My complaint is the childish nature of liberals, progressives, either declared or pseudo intellectual, supposed independents, others, undisclosed, moderates, or any other dumb assery that gets posted on these boards in the form of supposed debate.

    Now Perry, until recently you and I, although not always eye to eye had some minor agreement on some things, but as is the usual case with those who can't stand when there is someone else that disagrees with their POV, the resort is usually with weak ass arguments, to attack personally, demean, and ridicule their opponent. It is a well worn strategy of the far liberal left since the days of Allenski, and most recently unmasked to the masses through the utter failure of messaging from the current administration. So you will excuse me if I dismissed your irrelevant arguments, or at the least the ones that were so void of actual point as to be utterly laughable.

    Here is hoping beyond hope Perry, that tomorrow is a new day, and one where we can hopefully discuss things without the mundane back and forth that I can get from any run of the mill freshman young man or woman in here parroting their Marxist profs views in here....think about it, and let's give a try k?

    Night.

    NO. I said even if true, it would not answer my question. If there are more rallies around the country, it is possible to overall number is larger for OWS. I don't know which is large, which is why I asked. It seems to me no one knows, so claims that one is seem to be rather silly to me.

    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.

    Oh, I agree. I was merely questioning those two who were arguning over size when the I don't know that anyone has counted.

    Well, I can see why the numbers would want to be downplayed by those who support the chaos from OWS. Like I said earlier, it is about legitimacy. But, we can absolutely focus less on numbers, and more on message, what ever you think that is.

    I personally think both the tea party and OWs have been a tad incoherent to say the least. But, if we want to talk numbers, I think we should have some. As for legitmacy? What makes one legitmate and the other not? A single person can have a valid complaint, and thus legitmate. So, it can't really be numbers alone, can it?

    Do you think a single person with a 'valid complaint' could be heard these days? Numbers bring coverage. OWS knows this, Tea Party knows this. And it also depends on what you consider valid. Griping about having to pay back loans that you yourself signed for, is just an example of what I would consider to be a rather dumb complaint....Can I get an *uptwinkles*....
