    They speak for me too!
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Who the heck is Buddy Roemer?

    Judging from the stub on Wikipedia about him, he was a governor of Lousiana, switched to the Republican party in 1991 and lost every election after that. He has the authenticity of Mitt Romney, and the political credentials of Herman Cain.

    BTW: He didn't even get invited to the debates.

    That bad eh?

    Yet he cancels out Ockham, with these positions from the article above:

    "The statement released by him shows full support of the Wall Street protestors:

    As I continue touring college campuses throughout New Hampshire, I am reminded of all the young Americans currently taking part in the Occupy Wall Street movement. Please know that I stand by you.

    It is Main Street that creates the majority of jobs in America; it is Main Street that sends our brave young men and women to war; it is Main Street that hurts when another manufacturing plant closes only to be re-opened in China; it is Main Street that is being foreclosed on; and it is Main Street that is suffering while the greed of Wall Street continues to hurt our middle-class.

    Too-big-to-fail banks have only gotten bigger thanks to government bailouts, and as president, I will end the corporate tax loopholes that un-American corporations take advantage of only to ship our jobs overseas. Fair trade not Free trade.

    Money in politics has created institutional corruption. Both parties are guilty of taking the big check and are bought by Wall Street. My campaign is the only one that speaks out against this and I look forward to the day lobbyists are not allowed to donate to campaigns.

    Wall Street grew to be a source of capital for growing companies. It has become something else: A facilitator for greed and for the selling of American jobs. Enough already.

    Born in Shreveport, Roemer graduated as valedictorian of his high school class and entered Harvard University when he was just 16. Roemer went on to earn his MBA from Harvard and work in his father’s computer business before entering politics. In 1972, he was elected as a delegate to the Louisiana Constitutional Convention. He went on to serve four terms as a Democratic representative of Louisiana’s Fourth district, followed by one term as governor of Louisiana, during which he switched parties."

    Who's feeding OWS in NYC? All we need to do is follow the money... someone will get around to it sooner or later.
    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.

    Right, eating is unpatriotic!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let me know when you get to the bottom of this great evil.

    Curious you are more concerned about who is providing food to the protesters than you are the money wall street is providing to our politicians.

    I don't know much about these protesters, really. But I like the way they are getting the righties all up in a tizzie. That's worth a balogna sandwich in my book!

    We already have at least three candidates who wants to close corporate loopholes, and I support one of them. Neither democrats or republicans like crony capitalism.

    However, the occupy wall street movement is not about stopping corporate welfare. It is about young liberal students who are mad, because they can't get jobs and can't get their left-wing utopian paradse. Instead of blaming the white house for the corruption where businesses, banks and trade unions buy political parties. They are blaming Wall Street and bankers who are just following the laws and regulations of the country. If the laws and regulations are inadequate, then it's the White House fault.

    Secondly, they are only able to identify the problem, and find someone to blame their problems on. They are not able to find any solutions, the only solutions I have seen, is radical left wing proposals and having someone else pay their bills.

    I can tell you must have put a lot of effort into your analysis here of the protests happening around the country.

    they speak for themselves... however many of them there are.

    It's absolutely arrogant to claim you speak for 99% of Americans... astoundingly arrogant.
