Another personal attack?

I understand that our corrupted government enables what happens via The FED, the world banks, and Wall Street. I am aware enough to know when an astroturf revolution is being funded by George Soros, Unions and other radical leftists and Obama donors. Why aren't you?

Try addressing the thread topic of pay-to-revolt by the radical left won't you? We saw this astroturf pay to protest in Wisconsin this summer too. There is nothing new under Marx or those who push the central planners' agenda. Same radicals stiring the turd in the punchbowl in Egypt are doing it here: Obama's radical buddies.

You're just too far gone down the traditional right / left line of argument to realize that even under the fully accepted premise of a capitalistic society the Wall Street of today is very, very different from the Wall Street that originally made this country great.
And therein lies the real problem; GOVERNMENT should not be bailing them out; government should not be subsidizing, regulating, or abetting the criminals in any way shape or form! Government, like an enabling parent of an adult addict child, is as much to blame as Wall Street. Shrink government back down to the size the Constitution intended it to be and Wall Street will gradually and safely start crumbling and Main Street will once again start thriving.

Those idiots marching on Wall Street have absolutely no clue as to what they are protesting about. Go and ask various different people what they are protesting about and you will get a different answer each time. I saw a report where one guy was waving a jobs needed sign. He was asked if had a job. He said he quit his job to join the protest.

It's not true. Once or twice a year, there's a pickup of old furniture (big items). It was never more frequent than that.
I've lived throughout Germany on and off for over 30 years.

Exactly. The photos of the protests show mostly white college kids who have never worked a day in their lives and certainly wouldn't work a job they believe is beneath them.

There's a thread on how these groups are trying to recruit minorities to these protests - yet the photos on the job fairs show many blacks in them actually looking for a job.

Exactly!
Not to mention, jut because this group may be offering compensation does not disregard the whole beginnings of this protest.

If the repubs would put as much effort into acually doing something as sitting behind a keyboard and playing internet politicians they might make a difference.

Yup, like sex and drugs! Lol.


"Among the banners and flags are now discarded packets of condoms, cigarettes and bottles of spirits, while naked youngsters happily get together with just sleeping bags covering their modesty.
A box of free condoms is kept in the main area where protesters are camping.
In one shocking picture, a man can be seen defecating on a police car."
