    Re: Retired Teacher: Revolution Requires Collapsing American Government

    Why don't we just look at the last 4 threads besides this one you've posted about OWS?

    http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...occupiers.html
    http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...ff-revolt.html
    http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...y-protest.html
    http://www.debatepolitics.com/genera...ing-greed.html

    Oh yeah Josie, you're just interested in other people's opinions. Those are super intellectual topics where we can talk about the ideas behind OWS rather than petty tabloid stories that serve as nothing more than useless ad homs against individuals that are not representative of an entire movement. Please. I'll start answering your questions when you start being honest.

    Personally, I don't think our system is beyond reform or really needs anything beyond some minor tweaks. What we have in this country is mostly good.

    I imagine we differ greatly on what kinds of tweaks would be best though.

    Oh and the btw, I'm from Chicago, this was shown on the news and they hardly "stormed' into Rahm Emmanuel's office. But I am glad they went there since they are now holding government accountable as well.
    An occupier says that the United States government needs to be collapsed and you ask what significance it has? Really?

    Or, is this just denial of the fact that the occupiers are a buncha clowns, that either don't have a clue and if they do have a clue, they have very bad intentions?

    That last part...
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Occupy Chicago Protester at Rahm Emanuel’s Office in City Hall: Revolution Will Require Collapsing American Government | Video | TheBlaze.com

    You might recall that on Wednesday, angry Chicago “Occupiers” stormed Rahm Emanuel’s office at City Hall demanding they be allowed to set up camp at Grant Park indefinitely. Emanuel, however, remained ensconced in his office and refused to emerge, infuriating the already-agitated protesters. Now, footage has surfaced featuring some of the more radical occupiers at City Hall that day, including retired school teacher and militant gay-rights activist Roger Fraser. When Rebel Pundit asked Fraser the “revolution” would require “collapsing the American government,” Fraser answered in the affirmative stating, “personally, I think so.”

    (Nevermind that he gets almost $8,000 a month in pension money. And people say teachers are underpaid....)
    When asked what he thought it would take to achieve the activists’ goals, he remarked: “This kind of thing on a massive scale.“ He also answered in the affirmative as to whether or not the revolution would require collapsing the American government, and explained: ”Because….the resistance against this will be overwhelming…very strong….and relentless.”
    I don't know what he was asked, but if the story is true, it must have been something like, "Do you think it will require a revolution to collapse the American government?" To which it seems he replied, "Yes, because….the resistance against this will be overwhelming…very strong….and relentless.”

    What a very odd question to ask. I think it was intentionally loaded and inappropriate, frankly. And the man was caught off balance by it...as anyone might be.

    Look, we've got to be able to look through media crap and realize that, first and foremost, they're after a story with legs. Even if they have to engineer one.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
