    I'm not even clear on why you think that would matter... What exactly are you afraid of. Lay it out for me. Right now, support for communism in the US is at 0.01% or so. In order to take over the country, they need to get that to 51%. Lay out for me how you see that happening.

    Or is this one of those things were you like think it is catchy like a disease or something? Or brainwashing something?

    Me neither. CNN is pretty good on hard news. Disasters and stuff.

    ABC radio is crap and basically a mouthpiece for the White House.

    The great thing about defining things like the "1%" are easy to define without being subjective. This isn't a cable news channel, you don't need to make up definitions for something like that.

    Topline Results of Oct. 9-10, 2011, TIME Poll | Swampland | TIME.com

    That makes them the most approved of political entity in the country. Higher approval than Romney or Obama or the Democratic Party or the Republican Party or the Tea Party or Congress or Liberals or Conservatives. Some of those they are two, three or even five times more popular than.
    Other polls I have seen, have given them lower ratings, for instance this one
    IBOPE | Zogby IBOPE Zogby Poll: Public Favor Split for Occupy Wall St. Movement, 60% Say Demonstrators Lack Clear Goals
    Republicans seem to be unfaverouble, and democrats are quite faverouble, giving a rating of 45 against 49.

    However, that is how many who are faverouble. You don't have to agree with the movement to disagree with their opinions. The opinions of the members in the protests are extremly to the left, and if more people knew their approval rating will drop.

    Let's just agree to let them have one between the eyes every time we see one.

    Most likely the healthcare professional is dismayed to watch the eleite upper 1% manipulate markets and pollutocracy greed while the nail salon gal is watching Fox and sinks into a demented perspective voraciously defending the uber elite who funnel massive $ to manipulate the uneducated viewer.
