    Do you truly not know that what JB posted was their mission statement (not proposed demands), or are you being purposely dishonest to get in a dig at me? I expected better of you.

    If you are referring to me you are lying as I have included "proposed" each time.

    Are you daft? As has already been patiently explained to you, I was comparing the OWS protests with the other two historic mass non-violent protest, the civil rights movement and the Vietnam war.

    I already do! That's why I got my cows "Tax" and "deduction" saves me about 5k on property taxes.

    Can I still be part of the 99%?

    Rev - you and I do not agree about politics - but that is one beautiful grill island you have there.

    actually, that is a silly argument. making those who you think can afford more taxes pay them only encourages the rest of the country to continue to support irresponsible government spending.

    Most people I see here who advocate more taxes on the wealthy also make a case for decreased government spending in several areas. That is my position.
