    Quite a good point. I'd rather have a corporate America than a centralized planning totalitarian America.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed 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.

    It's hard to believe that there are people anywhere who still believe that the United States has debtor's prisons.

    This thread needs a real good bitch slap ... if we can just get the bitch to hold still.

    We have folks here, labeled as "left" and "progressive", and maybe even accurately as "liberaL", who want to preach to us about what is wrong with America, and that it needs fixing.

    OK. We are no where near as far apart in agreement on that as we are on the undeniable fact that these OWS yahoos and miscreants represent none of that. That these yahoos and miscreants that such as Obama and Pelosi embraced became as enema water just as soon as they became a politcal disaster.

    OWS does not represent a legitimate grievance, much less a solution. They are part of the problem in America. Not the solution. Just like Obama.

    Libs here can take their ad-hominems and fantasy rabbit holes and angel dust for OWS and shove all that BS where the sun don't shine.

    I crap better than OWS. And I am not alone.

    Hey. Wish I had thought of it. FWIW, such as the Tea Party is millenia closer to sanity and solutions than OWS.

    But "yeah". Wish I hadn't been in such a rush, and found your brevity first

    I was being metaphorical. It's hard to believe that I have to explain this to you.

    Of course it does, Mr. I. There are Occupiers that say the ultimate goal is communism. One of them is an editor of Occupy Wall Street Journal - Jed Brandt. There are more I just can't think of their names right now. I'll look for the video of the Occupy panel where they openly discussed socialism and communism.

    No, you were just using more left wing hyperbole,

    That's why the leftists should never be taken seriously.

    Okay, so what exactly does this post offer to this thread in terms of productivity? Or are you just immaturely looking to attack me?
