    I guess you missed the fact that Bush cut taxes for all TAX payers and his schemes meant the most productive tax payers are now carrying a higher BURDEN of the FEDERAL INCOME Tax than at any time in the last 60 years


    its time people like you start paying for what you want and stop braying that others fund your addiction to government services

    These people are what you call thugs.

    They percieve the government as doing something to them, so they turn to their right and smash whatever and whoever is there.

    How did that hurt the government?

    At this point I don't think any of these protests have anything to do with OWS.

    The OWS movement is being used as a cover to smash and steal whatever these people want.

    and they're not "OWS". They're self declared "anarchists." They could be considered the extreme end of the small government conservatives.
    I for one am glad they dumped that tewa in the bay. I hate the taste of tea.

    Coffee became the drink of America, as well as it should be.

    And because the OWS protesters are rather inarticulate and unclear in what they hope to achieve then it naturally follows that this lack of clarity means they can and will be easily duped. Their puppet masters are far more clever than they,

    If they want to reform Wall Street they can express their concerns to their elected representatives or make it an issue in the upcoming presidential elections, but I think we all know this would be beyond their ability or imagination. They should be pitied as much as censured.
