I unfortunately can remember vaguely the last time Wall-St. was "occupied. This was back in the mid-60's and the local unions sent goons with billy clubs to do a wee bit of head bashing! Is anyone here suggesting Bloomberg should do the sam???! I'm certainly not, although, freedon of assembly not withstanding, I personally support some of the protesters' goals, if not their methods. I do agree with our mayor that they're defeating their own cause.

I am not against technology.

You seem to be skirting the issue. In a prior post you wrote; ""Americans who stood for small business and cottage industry because that is what this country was founded on. THAT is the capitalism on which we were founded, not the mega corporation." I pointed out that you use products made by "mega corporations" and you responded with the oblique quote above. Not very convincing.

Additionally, do you use oil, how about automobiles, and do you occasionally inhabit high-rise buildings?.... all of which are created by "mega corporations". Do you have money in banks? Logic is a dangerous thing to those who use 'feelings' instead of of rational thought and reason.


At to the almighty intrusive government with all its new bureaucratic regulations (soon they'll tell you what to eat), it's noticeable that nobody commented on the Gibson Guitar case because it epitomizes what is wrong with all the 'do-gooder' government employees who foster unreasonable rules and regulations.

Lots of people get speadily marginalized nowadays.Thirst for radical solutions is imminent.Galvanized folks are not good for the system but passive folks are also not good.So the balance has eclipsed.The elites need to secure themselves with weapons police and army because their future is bleak.They are sandwiched because the war is unorthodox they have no idea what is going on.

It's not that people want to harm the elite. What people want is opportunity and simplicity.

people want accountability, capitalism is not only about freedom of commerce but also about risk. Those bankers should bankrupt and lose their fortunes. That would happen to average citizen and if he would go about distributing falsified money, hell he would face a jail sentence.
What about them bastards ? Government's are giving them taxpayers money. You calling that capitalism eh? Absurd it is feudalism if anything, barons always win against peasants.

Still using products made by "mega corporations" I see. Perhaps some "mega corporations" are okay and some are not?
As to harming the elite as you put it, it seems that some protesters want to "eat the rich". Here are some photographs of typical protesters:

I'm sure they represent the 99% (lol) and will influence the typical American family to join them.
Maybe I'll protest by purchasing a Gibson guitar.

Forty-five million plus? Please cite your sources for these numbers.

So, in short you dont [sic] think it is Barbaric to let people die?

I believe it morally wrong to let people die.

I believe a desperate person uses emotive language to support a point.

Do you believe medical care should be rationed?

I wasnt sure about the healthcare number so I said it was the number of people on foodstamps (which is also true).

George Soros isn’t a financial backer of the Wall Street protests, despite speculation by critics including radio host Rush Limbaugh that the-billionaire investor has helped fuel the anti-capitalist movement.

http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2011/10/13/nyc-imam-calls-on-musli ms-to-show-solidarity-with-wall-st-occupiers/
" Imam Ayyub Abdul Baki of the Islamic Cultural Center of New York called on Muslims and Muslim charities Tuesday to show solidarity with the activists.
We will be feeding protestors and the hungry with the collaborative efforts of invited Muslim charities,” he said."


As to George Soros, many of his covert activities have so many layers of cover that it is too early to believe his spokesperson that he is not involved in the Wall Street protests. He may not be but perhaps time will tell.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/10/13/us-wallstreet-protests-origi ns-idUSTRE79C1YN20111013
"Soros and the protesters deny any connection. But Reuters did find indirect financial links between Soros and Adbusters, an anti-capitalist group in Canada which started the protests with an inventive marketing campaign aimed at sparking an Arab Spring type uprising against Wall Street. Moreover, Soros and the protesters share some ideological ground. "I can understand their sentiment," Soros told reporters last week....."

If quoting people, in this case an Iman is wrong then you are needlessly hyper sensitive. The Iman has a right to support the protesters. I merely reported it. Use logic not feelings.

antheads:

I disagree with Mr. Beck on various issues and agree with him on many. His interview with Mr. Henry Juszkiewicz, the CEO of Gibson Guitar Corporation speaks for itself. The interview had to do with the inane EPA regulations which are way out-of-whack. You seem obsessed with the messengers instead of the subject matter. That's a losing tactic, always has been.

antheads:

You sure that it isn't Van Jones that you admire? lol

As to the clean-up attempt by Bloomberg, he has postponed it for a while because he now believes that the best way to clean up the filth left by the Wall Street protesters is to invite the Tea Party to rally there. (For those of you unfamiliar with this theme, the Tea Party people are known to leave the environment cleaner than when they found it).

Glenn Beck: Occupy Protesters ‘Will Come For You and Drag You Into the Streets and Kill You’

Would explain a lot if you do.

Sorry,

I cut and pasted your reply as opposed to my using the quote function provided. Seeing that I write and I see [sic] used when my papers are quoted and I do the same when I review the work of other people it's ingrained.

But, I didn't do it in a subsequent reply and I find the use of [sic] inappropriate for blogs.



Now, back to offending you on the point at hand.

If you have numbers to prove your case please cite them. Otherwise, your statement that people are dying in the streets because of a lack of universal medical care is hyperbole.

After watching some footage of Protesters, I wonder...??, are the Americans simply so mediated and consumed, that they are too stupid and incapable of protest?? Even the protesters look like their performing for an episode of Beverly Hill 90210.
America is !!! where the protest needs to start, and the Federal Reserve building and Wall Street need to be occupied but......'Me thinks', the land of fat TV heads, is more inclined to watch an alternative movie about the revolution actually happening,and then leaving it at that.

it is big step for America just to protest, media was ignoring it for weeks. I do not see it lasting thought the winter but next year in spring we will see more protest and even more violent as millions of people will lose unemployment benefits.

will see more protest

I think in the modern world, protest by it self has become redundant. I think it needs to be submerged with a form of highly structured civil disobedience. Boycotting certain products, refusing to work on certain days, refuse to watch commercial news channels and read commercial newspaper and magazines(or whatever I don't know ) etc etc,, However I don't think Americans especially, can do with out their goodies for too long.

They will have to do without no jobs no money for crap from china mage by slave labor, and no unemployment no money for even food so the protest will resume in spring with everyone joining.

Only violence and battery came from police.

civil disobedience.


The worst thing that can happen is civil disobedience or violence. The occupy wall protesters have started a movement without vision, what do they stand for? Although many people understand the reasons for the protests, they do not represent the majority, main stream want vision and values. If it turns to violence in the UK this weekend on the London marches, then it is lambs to the slaughter again.

Only from those who carry the "Eat the Rich" signs. Evidently, they feel that the rich taste better than any other group. Of course, I am legally well-armed and I pity the 'Flea-Party' fool who attempts to stick a fork in me.

milky:

Only the "Wall Street" protesters are. As has been demonstrated dozens of time, the Tea Party people know how to do it right.

But, but, but, during the presidential campaign, Obama promised that he would part the seas and liberate everyone. Was he lying or just incompetent?

Hell no. I'd be grumpy without my wine and cigars and chocolates too. Having a nice porterhouse steak in about two hours and then some night clubbing. Maybe that's why the protesters want to eat me?

So true; there is no other crime in the U.S. except from the improper authorities. Even the ghettos are paradise if only the cops wouldn't interfere.
