    In your dreams. That is as uninformed of a statement as I have seen here. Head in the sand much ?

    The unemployment still exists, the lack of a self-sustaining affordable health care system still exists, the wealth disparity between the rich and the poor still exists, the same practices of credit default swaps still exists. People are standing up to say no to this nonsense.
    They are standing up for free stuff. For what they think is "fair" free stuff.

    Throwing rocks in a non-violent movement would be like ****ing for virginity, now wouldn't it?

    At least in Europe, the protesters fight back instead of lying there like a dog.

    No, they are not. They are pro-Obama, the biggest leech in the country. They are pro-union, the biggest leech organizations in the country. They are cheap liberal astroturf. And their hopes for more free-stuff will be crushed in Nov 2012.

    Then you do get it. I have the same disbelief about the moneyed on Wall Street not affecting politics.

    These are the same unions who screwed the workers in the rear, w/ endless compromise, layoffs and wage cuts.

    Standing alongside these AFL-CIA is like standing next to O'Bummer.

    Kick the cops in the teeth and say, you cant overturn the U.S. Constitution and arrest me, screw your permits!

    They are standing up for a reordering of our national priorities as to what is important to the majority of the country (jobs, affordable healthcare, the environment) not more wealth for a small percentage of the wealthy.

    You don't know much about non-violent protest do you?
