    Oh the Media and coverage of protests... Remember the WTO protests in 1999? Started off all peaceful, huge amount of people peaceful protesting and no news coverage. Then what happened a loose band of anarchists came started breaking ****, THEN the media came and covered it, but of course they covered it as everyone there as violent anarchists who just like to break ****.
    Point being is that the media doesnt cover people power movements because they are "important", because they perseeve that as dry and a tip to the corporate media power struggle. They will only cover it if there is some "bang" affect going on for them.

    Vehemently, eh? I can only say that the violence is inbred into the right; even into their rhetoric. Your post exemplifies that.

    Given your prior statements, your assessment of anyone's credibility is simply a joke. That the Tea Party right is willing to take the government down to advance their agenda is, quite simply, self evident to any critical thinker. They brought on the credit downgrade as a result of their debt ceiling idiocy. They have avowed to make Obama a one-term president (at clearly any cost). They, in the form of supportive right wing talk media, wish Obama to fail (how can a president fail without the country failing as well?). Bottom line, my claim requires explanation to only those who will refuse to acknowledge it regardless. Stop wasting everyone's time... I, nor anyone I would consider credible, cares one whit about the right wing's assessment of their credibility, given that the right wing talk media machine is clearly composed of sociopathic liars (Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh, et al).

    If the right wing talk media propaganda hate machine -- and their sycophants -- considered my arguments credible, then I would be worried. In the meantime, their claims that the world is flat and that the sun revolves around the Earth is to be expected.

    let's not confuse partisan hyperbole and ideological yammering as critical thought.... it insult critical thinkers when you do so.

    If it bleeds, it leads.

    Then perhaps the Dr. Phil junkies will pay attention. [shudder]

    An astute observation, and I do credit you for the critical analysis of your own posts. Well done

    go do your art on your own property then... stop doing art on other people's property.

    I see you as a common thief, stealing value from other people's property though your immature, and illegal, activities.
