    Particularly not in the targets either as these are more riots than revolt.

I just find it funny that some people in their zeal to denounce OWS also denounce the Founders.

    Well, I find it "funny" that some who support OWS cannot see the chasm of difference between the ideals of liberty, and the not so ideal of being a ward of the redistributive state.

    Let's not forget, trying to shut down bridges and tunnels. None of these things, a revolution makes. And thier view of mayday, well, it's why I keep my bolt carrier well oiled.
    There is no rationalization for these criminal activities.

    Regarding the charge that people are not lashing out at the government but the evil rich................ there is a strong feeling among many people - and they are NOT bomb throwers of poop propellers - that far too often the government serves the evil rich over everyone else.

I support the right for people to defend themselves and their property.

    It's not fascism to defend yourself and your property from being damaged, destroyed, or looted by thugs.
    First, I would ask for evidence of looting.

    Second, I would ask for evidence of ties to OWS.

    Third, I would ask how the desire of internet vigilantes to kill people they don't like is "defending themselves and their property."

    Last, I would appreciate if you address those items in your reply before making up anything else.

    Would you like some more tea to go with that elitist buffoonery ....

    Not only have I forgotten more than you will ever learn, but I also took up the gun for 7 years to defend your liberty.

    Yet they embrace it.

    They seem to be just that...

    Solidarity Sunday


    Anyway, screaming at coporations while enjoying a starbucks as you throw bricks through small businesses windows, and try to block highways, well what kind of message do you think that sends. #ows of dubious causes embraces these tactics and now that they "jumped the shark" only the extremist element remains, and we are beginning to see the evil of thier ways.

    LOL Well right now neither of you are looking to genius with your little ping pong game, here. . .
    A screaming comes across the sky.
    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    Re: May Day protests turn violent in downtown Seattle

    I am not justifying any of these criminal activities and made that quite clear.

    It is a fact that many working people feel that the government serves the rich and corporate interests over theirs.
