    I agree with you that it will grow, but I don't agree at all their efforts are misplaced. Since their goal seems to be to bring about an awakening in the country of what our priorities should be, it seems that making that point in the home of the most concentrated wealth and greed in this country seems to me to be the most appropriate place they could make that stand.

    Don't need anything in your state to protest an idea.

    *barf* motion sickness....

    Seriously though.... Why cant we ever get a clip of what was going on BEFORE the police action took place........
    Even in this video it appears that the line got broke by the protestors and when the police began doing their job people flooded in to get closer and created the chaos....
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Which is class envy. Which has been fomented by the Democrats for two generations now. Those folks protesting do not represent a new phenomenon. They also do not represent some new revolt against government. What they represent is a last gasp to maintain hopes of the redistribution utopia that they thought Obama would make reality.

    You may see it as a young growing movement. I see it as the death throes of the free-loaders.

    They are protesting the fact that in a nation that is supposed to have a govt by the people, of the people, and for the people, we have a govt that is controlled by big money interests

    Our health care system is controlled by insurance and pharma corps, because that's what Wall St wants
    Our financial system is controlled by banks and financial services corps, because that's what Wall St wants
    Out food system is controlled by large argricultural corps, because that what Wall st wants
    Our energy system is controlled by oil, gas, and coal corps, because that what Wall St wants
    Our media is controlled by a few large corps, because that what Wall St wants

    And our political system is controlled by Wall St, and the rightwing approves
    Sounds like the gripes of a bunch of losers. I wonder id this is something new in America, because of the fear that comes out of a great recession like this or is this the malise that Jimmy Carter warned us about.
