    What of the "rights" that were infringed upon by those not wishing to ride the bus with African Americans, unless they were in the back of the bus? Or those business owners "rights" to not admit people of color?

    I'm pretty sure what they are saying is the rights of the 99% will not be subjugated by the 1%.

    The right to economic justice that has been under attack during the last 30 years of wealth redistribution.

    LOL, there is no such right. Even if there was, explain to me the justice in taking from someone who's earned something and giving it (or a portion of it) to someone who hasn't.

    Your opposition to economic justice is noted. The majority, myself included, disagree.

    That is what the OWS is protesting. For the last 30 years tax rates have been decreased for those at the top and increased for the middle class, so more and more of the middle class are being forced into poverty to pay higher tax rates to make up for lower tax rates being paid by those at the top.

    Re: Thoroughly sick of all things Occupy? OWS?

    W. T. F. is a right to "economic justice" ???

    WTF is "Economic Justice" anyways?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Economic justice is when one small class of people doesn't continually get the gold mine while the middle class gets the shaft. Economic justice is when you reverse 30 years of cutting taxes on the wealthy. Economic justice is reestablishing the firewall between investment banking and commercial banking, Economic justice is paying a living wage to the people that make the wealth in this country. Economic justice is eliminating tax cuts for outsourcing American jobs.

    In other words, while the rich continue to work 80 hours a week, they must get the same pay as people who are unemployed and protesting instead of working or trying to find a job.

    You make up something and attribute it to me, then claim it makes no sense. Do you think no one sees though this? Let me know if you should decide to discuss what I actually said.
