    And where in Obmaa's platform is he telling people to go out and vandalize? Since you say they are "embracing" it.
    "Non-violent" So advocating law-breaking so as to deny you your income that day is noble ? Or is it not an environment which then foments a few of the more aggressive participants to toss a brick and destroy someone's asset ? Its just a matter of degrees.

    And yes. They are embracing Obama's class envy. That they have taken it to its uglier limits does not negate the big hug

    This **** does not, and will not, happen at a Tea Party rally. And you all know it.

    Solidarity Sunday

    On September 21st, 2011, the richest 400 Americans owned more than half of the country’s population.
    Ending wealth inequality is our one demand.
    On September 21st, 2011, roughly one sixth of Americans did not have work.
    Ending joblessness is our one demand.
    On September 21st, 2011, roughly one sixth of America lived in poverty.
    Ending poverty is our one demand.

    On September 21st, 2011, roughly fifty million Americans were without health insurance.
    Ending health-profiteering is our one demand.
    .
    You have fought all the wars. You have worked for all the bosses. You have wandered over all the countries. Have you harvested the fruits of your labors, the price of your victories? Does the past comfort you? Does the present smile on you? Does the future promise you anything? Have you found a piece of land where you can live like a human being and die like a human being? On these questions, on this argument, and on this theme, the struggle for existence, the people will speak. Join us.

    Access to adequate health care is a human right not a privelage

    Redraft education financing legislation. Lower educational expenses for students instead of raising tuition costs. Pull money form the "WAR" system to refund education and continuing education. Forgive Student Loan Dept or restructure the Student Loan System so that students are not punished for self improvement and made into corporate slaves upon educating themselves

    Provide incentives for local farming instead of incentives that benefit corporate seed and food produces
    Newsflash: Nobody owes them anything just because they were born.

    And then, there's the issue of their paranoia:
    More and more evidence is being released to the public surrounding the suspicious circumstances surrounding 911. This measure would be included in the list of demands to show that the original investigation was significantly flawed. Demand investigation into the source of secret funding for CIA occupation programs since WWII, the cover up of the trillions of dollars that aided in the collapse of the Soviet Union and may have ultimately instigated the 911 attacks as well as their cover-up.

    If you are ignorant of blac block tactics, I guess you would would miss the inferences the main #ows website is suggesting. it was said there was no relation between #ows and black bloc tactics.

    I have clearly proved this contention wrong.


    Violence begets violence and when you fling your poo and pee at cops, I won't care much if they don't treat you well.

    As I have said a few times (thanks for reading). However when people were denouncing destruction of private property and violence against government; I merely pointed out that we did the exact same thing before and most people seem fine with it in that case. There is no absolute, there are conditions under which these actions become just.

    That's quite true. Radical Islam knows it, the Nazis know it, Fascists know it and the Communists certainly know it as well.

    But that ten per cent can be applied to those in America who love their country also and will quickly turn on the OWS types, and those who using them, in order to defend the freedoms they've earned.

    Two mistakes are being made here by the OWS people and their handlers. The first is by the simple minded OWSers who think they can demonstrate, damage and disrupt indefinitely without a counter protest, much more violent and dramatic than they ever imagined, taking place.

    The mistake being made by their handlers is that they can create mayhem and revolution in America without the "silent majority" of Americans ever striking back. Like Yamamoto after Pearl Harbor, the far left may eventually realize that "...all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant."

    A black bloc is a tactic for protests and marches, whereby individuals wear black clothing, scarves, ski masks, motorcycle helmets with padding, or other face-concealing items.[...] The clothing is used to avoid being identified, and to, theoretically, appear as one large mass, promoting solidarity. -wiki


    Now let's look at #ows of dubious causes main website:

    Solidarity Sunday




    Straight from the horses mouth.


    It's amazing I know so much more about #ows of dubious causes that it's supporters.
    Going by your logic then all muslims are terrorist because of the acts of a few. From the OP's link...

    "Same struggle same fight, Occupy and immigrant rights," protestors chanted as they marched south on Third Avenue to University Street.

    The march for immigrant and workers' rights went Tuesday evening from Judkins Park and met the Occupy group to a roar of cheers about 6:15 p.m. near Fourth Avenue and Columbia Street. That May Day march from Judkins had been planned for week and McGinn said that demonstration of the First Amendment was different from the violence seen earlier.

    That rally lasted for about another hour with no arrests and no instances of the violence seen earlier. The majority of demonstrators were peaceful at that and on earlier marches, but it was the crowd of nearly 100 black-clad anarchists that created problems.

    "We're sorry this had to happen in this beautiful city," said McGinn, who stressed the long-organized May Day protests often occur without violent infiltrators.

    When a driver became stuck about 6:10 p.m. trying to go north on Third Avenue from Seneca Street, several demonstrators apologized for blocking her.

    "I love this – it's this is peaceful now," said the woman, Denise, who only gave her first name. "This is what I want to see. I don't want to see people breaking windows and hurting people."
    Use your eyes instead of your emotions.

    And fyi...I don't support the OWS. I also don't reject them out of hand.

    OWS has a few legitimate ideas. Where I depart from their ideas is when they start destroying private property of individuals who are just working for a living, and making demands which necessarily require redistribution of wealth. I'm all for freedom, and I'm all for one taking responsibility for his own life and livelihood.

    Please show me anywhere in my statements where I advocated this. I only pointed out that there is a speration between those causing violence and those that are non-violent.

    Please show us where Obama has said to take to the streets and block bridges and traffic and break windows. I'm sure you can find a quote there. Otherwise, you're just being a partisan hack and trying to connect this to Obama.

    What does the tea party have to do with anything in this thread? Nice deflection and dodge there.
