    though, I will state that OWS did recommend folks to take a "sick day" in order to go protest, months ago. I responded to this on Facebook, stating that this would be an abuse of the hard-won rights fought for by Unions decades ago.


    so "OWS" recommended people lie in order, if that doesn't demonstrate something.....

    I don't consider keeping me (or any other worker) from doing their legitimate job to be anyone else's "personal business". I consider it to be a personal assault, to be honest with you.

    that's fine. any worker who is kept from going to his job due to civil disobedience, is welcome to press charges.

    those charges will be laughed at and tossed out, but they are still welcome to try.

    I am so glad to see you support infringing on others rights for a dubious cause.

    Dubious cause...in your highly biased & bigoted view.

    if it wasn't for civil-disobedience, black would not have the right to vote down South, Segregation would still be legal, abortion rights would not exist, etc etc.

    By all accounts & understanding of history, civil-disobedience and the evolution of society go hand-in-hand.

    Who's talking about pressing charges. I'm talking about showing up and doing whatever I have to in order to report for work. I'm not losing a day's pay because someone wants to step out in front of my car and get themselves run over.

    Almost a decade ago I nearly had to cross a Union picket line as a Contractor for the company I currently work for. A certain Union member informed me that I better not try to do it. I informed her that if she (or anyone else) stepped in front of my car, I'd run them down like a squirrel. Thankfully it didn't come to that as the contract situation worked out. I am now a Union employee and have told the Officers of this Union that while I would picket, I will NEVER, under ANY circumstances prevent a legitimate employee from getting to their work station. Scabs, yes. Legitimate workers, NO.

    yes, I am bigoted against lazyness and stupidity. #ows seems obsessed with it.

    I think it is quite an anti-intellectual stretch to compare #ows of dubious causes to the civil rights movement, to me it simply demonstrates ignorant hubris and delusions of self importance.
