    Or better yet. Why isnt it illegal for riot control to hide their faces or identifying tags? It's illegal for protesters to cover their face to prevent info-miners from using your face in some database. Yet when it comes time to quell the people's voice its ok to do with an army of armed faceless police.
    Because if the police could be identified there would be retaliation against them by the citizenry, and how can a state effectively function when its own shock troops must live in fear?

    Hrm.. So if people knew the face of their opressors they might retaliate. Does anything sound a bit wrong here with my first statement?

    If anyone pursued illegal retaliation then let them be dealt with. But what about legal retaliation? If a person is going to accept a check from the public and then quell the publics voice they should do so bare faced and with pride. Or quit their mute-job and stop accepting payment for dispensating silence.

    The state can't have retaliation, legal or otherwise.

Perhaps it is because people that can afford to travel and sit around for days on end on someone elses dime probably have very little real value to society. Perhaps it is the capitalistic 'anarchistic' event organizers lack of credibility. I dont know for sure. Maybe its just that a bunch of little twats sitting around protesting vague generalities and ideologies dont DESERVE much attention... but...you know...power to the people and stuff...
    Let's see now. The fact that there are 5-10 times as many protestors on weekends compared to weekdays would tend to cause leakage from your balloon. That would be the weekends when more people have days off from everyday work and disciplines. Actually, they are doing something and we are not. Does that have a clear ring.

    Wait...they have jobs? Cuz...I coulda swore I read several comments about people that have travelled there from North Dakota and other points west. SO...tell us...who exactly are they protesting? What are they hoping to accomplish? Hey...maybe with any luck they will cause a bank or two to collapse. If they pull it off...I hope its your 401k that gets wiped out.

    Buncha retards, the lot of them. So are their supporters.

    I heard a rumor that a keyboard can still be operated with ones cerebellum tightly impacted in the rectum, but I had doubted the veracity of the rumor. Buncha retards told me. They're not completely retarded. Eh?

    Hats off to your accomplishements young man...but I see the group here a bit differently...and I believe you have all your blame directed to the wrong place.
    I see legions of young men like yourself that have had the sunshine and the beautiful blue sky and big white gorgeous fluffy clouds in your future turned to black...by disgusting greedy corporate scum from MY GENERATION...yes the babyboomers have stolen your future...its not the ones you blame perry...its the ones that have gutted my country for a buck....I realize im considered a liberal now by the Ron Paul fanatics and teaparty nutters, Im just fine with that....The only thing that has me totally baffled is that so many of you think that the ones I see as killing the country for the other 80%..are the saviors...Ive questioned myself over this but based on my life experience and admittedly limited education compared to most of you...I come right back to the same beliefs...corporate greed is destroying my country and its future in its ever quest for mOAR and mOAR

    I dont know...at your next retard support group meeting where the usual bunch of clowns bitch whine and cry about those that have succeeded and plot to bring down the banking system, ask them. You also might want to ask them what they are hoping to actually accomplish.

    You also might want to mention to said group of retards they ought to stop bitching so much about those that bust their ass to succeed...they ARE after all the people the dependent class in this country is relying on to take care of them.

    Guess what is the most read story today on the BBC website?
    BBC News - Hundreds of Occupy Wall Street protesters arrested

    You ain't still suggesting trickle down works, are you? The retards say the banking system gonna bring its own self down. Can you imagine. Seems the bail out brings more bail out followed by posting bail. That Occupy Wall Street is especially for you and your type, bubba.
