Re: OCCUPY ORLANDO - OR TAKE OUT HAMAS?
An intuition told me from the very start there was a curius bug implanted here. It was too much of a co-incidence, an Arabesque spring time in America, a thought which spun like a bee in my head. But apparently its not a new bug at all and the same usual culprit: Hamas and the Brotherhood are embedded deep in the core of this Un-American phenomenon spreading all over the globe, with anti-Israel and Pro-Pretend Pals naturally taking centre stage:

Sorry about that.

Still, sight unseen I think we can take it that this is some nonsense invented by a loony to appeal to other loonies.

Re: OCCUPY ORLANDO - OR TAKE OUT HAMAS?
Yes, what you say is correct and there is no conclusive proof as yet. Still, my intuition says that guy does not appear a loony. There is a common thread of Israel bashing throughout these assemblies, making it not limited to Orlando or Wall Street.

Re: This is what the 99% are talking about
Maybe it's a success story for Roy Brown, 54 years old then, in this instance, rbp.

Homeless, hungry, in detox.....

Prison might have been a major Step Up, as Jesse Jackson would have put it. 15 years of free room & board, 3 meals a day...as opposed to...what? scrounging through the dunsters eating godawful who knows what, begging on the street where you can get rolled and stabbed dead easily, looking for good pieces of cardboard and used rug remnants for blankets which arent enough and you freeze anyway, holding an empty flask of cheap booze....

54 + 15 = 69, probably ready to go on social security....

if not dead anyway.

It would be cool if Paul R. Allen wished he got 15 years - but I know he will be welcomed home like a hero in his family.

Re: OCCUPY ORLANDO - OR TAKE OUT HAMAS?
There is a common thread of Israel bashing throughout these assemblies, making it not limited to Orlando or Wall Street.

And you say this based on what, exactly? At how many of these assemblies, exactly, are there "Israel bashers?" What percentage of the protestors are "bashing Israel?"

What's your definition of "Israel bashing," anyway? If someone calls Israel on killing civilians in yet another retribution attack, or for breaking previous agreements by building yet more settlements, is that "bashing?"

Re: Best way to Occupy Wall Street

You're trying to have it both ways, Rueh. You're implying that the government does the frivolous spending but the rich should be penalized/taxed for it.

Dr Adequate writes:

To be precise, what he says is rather them than the poor.

Do you actually disagree?

If you do, then the solution is in your own hands. Write to Paris Hilton's lawyers, and explain that you are deeply concerned that the tax burden falls more heavily on the rich than on the poor. Enclose a check towards the payment of her taxes. Your conscience, at least, will be clear.

Adequate, obviously you don't understand the problem. Until you get a handle on it, you'll never come up with a viable solution.

The problem is neither the rich or the poor. It's the boobs in government who spend the hard earned tax $$ of the upper and middle class as if it grew on trees rather than the hard work and risky investments of the upper (rich) and middle class.

The solution is for the rich, the middle class and the poor to go to the poles and fire the boobs, replacing them with conservative (i.e. to conserve) representatives who hold the line on spending, cut the pork,etc.

The solution is for the protesting rent-a-mob rif-raf, trashing up the homes, businesses and offices on Wall Street to go to work, earn their way and advocate for candidates who will cease and desist doing what the boobs in government are doing.

What conservative has ever "held the line" on spending? Please be specific. Even Ronaldus Maximus grew the deficit and increased spending.

Didn't we just learn that 85% of the OWS protesters were already employed?

What "homes" do you think there are on Wall Street? And what do Wall Street financial elites do to "earn their way"? Remember, just because someone pays you, doesn't mean you earned it.

Yah, sure Employed by who? Who, besides rent-a-mob lefty organizations allows them time off to trash up and protest, defecating on private property, etc.

The employers of many are highly funded rent-a-mob left wing organizations.

FYI there are thousands of residents. Many are complaining. 'They are defecating on our doorsteps': Manhattan residents' fury over Occupy Wall St protesters'

Re: Best way to Occupy Wall Street

You mean, besides all of them? Remember the Gingrich revolution, the Contract With America? I do. Remember how it was supposed to usher in an age of conservative governance? Remember how it didn't?

Don't you remember Bush's enormous Congressional majorities? I do. What on Earth is the deal with the perpetual Conservative Cult of Victimhood? Even when they have all three branches, it's "oh, those dastardly liberals!" When are you guys going to take some personal responsibility for the fact that your conservative credo is nothing but an electoral excuse to redistribute wealth to the rich?

Employed by who?

By employers.

The employers of many are highly funded rent-a-mob left wing organizations.

Right, it's ACORN. An organization that hasn't existed since it was framed by conservative for crimes it not only didn't commit, but that never actually happened. Somehow they've come from BEYOND THE GRAVE to, what, throw a few drum circles in some city parks?

These conspiracy theories have to stop, Buz. You look like a buffoon.

'They are defecating on our doorsteps': Manhattan residents' fury over Occupy Wall St protesters'

They shit all over our economy; sounds like OWS guys are just returning the favor.

Re: Best way to Occupy Wall Street

Utterly astounding. Tea Partiers show up and threaten people with loaded guns at health care debates; Tea Partiers attack peaceful Democratic demonstrators; Tea Partiers run amok in Wisconsin; none of that merits a police response beyond "move along, move along."

Oh, but complain about income inequality instead of a black president, and all of a sudden it's a full-on police riot. Unbelievable.

Same stinky organization, new name.

quote:
But the only difference between the new groups and ACORN is the names, Issa said. The groups are keeping the same employees and the same tax identification numbers. For example, Issa said, Affordable Housing Centers of America was formerly ACORN Housing. The new corporation has the same tax ID and employee identification number as ACORN Housing, which received millions of dollars in funding from the Department of Housing Urban and Development

Re: Best way to Occupy Wall Street
Since when Wall street earned their money? I've already shown you in my previous messages that they stole their way to their fortune with the complicity of the government but you have yet to refute my argument. That's why people protest at Wall Street, it's because it is Wall Street that makes the calls and stole taxpayer's money.
To remind you, here's where I argued about it, I could try to find more sources but it's useless if you don't even try to address the point:
