    yes EXCESSIVE POLICE ACTIONS sayz me. and the unfavorable light seems to be where she stands according to the prez of the uc colleges in other words her boss. he seems to think students have a right to protest without being beaten or pepper sprayed and i agree with him only US citizens and nationwide.

    I think the police have shown enough patience for these protesters. They were given numerous chances to police themselves but that notion isn't sinking in. If people wearing the OWS stripes are going to continue being violent and causing trouble, then they should be dealt with as criminals. Sure, an OWS thug who breaks a window doesn't mean the whole OWS is bad, but when you hear so many of these reports, enough is enough already. Take them to jail. If a group of the OWS is being peaceful, then leave it, but if a lot of people of the OWS in a certain area are causing hell, nip it in the bud.

    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.

    You'd think they'd get the hint...maybe a good old water hose would send them packing.

    Yes, because the reason we have an 8.6% unemployment rate is because there are jobs just sitting there waiting for everyone
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Agreed. It's become rather difficult to get jobs so telling people to just "get a job" doesn't help much, imo.
