Come on people. This is a chance for libs and conservatives to come together. What do we all agree on? That the corporate government alliance is bad for the people. Protest government, not corporations. The government is the only one with the power to change things. (And I`m NOT talking about taxing people just because they are rich) We need to somehow cut the ties between gov. and big biz.

A: The corporations own the government!
B: The corporations need to be regulated!
A: By who?
B: The government!

"That`s another example of liberals acting like children when they know they won`t get their way."

Coming from someone who bows to the party of "NO", I`ll take that statement with a grain of salt.

@UkeleleMike: "If they want to change the money in politics, (their earliest-stated issue), go to the politicians, not Wall Street."

Um, first of all, we are going after politicians. I guess you didn`t heat about the ODC`ers at the Senate building on Tuesday, eh? Secondly the point of OWS is that our politicians are puppets whose policies are being written by Wall Street. Don`t just go after the puppets. You also go after the puppetmasters.

Isn`t the American interpretation of patriotism "shut up, don`t think, and do what you are being told"?

So obviously protesting is unpatriotic..

They don`t work because you didn`t know what you were doing.

Clue: When copying and pasting a URL, make sure you either overwrite the `http://` that automatically populates the link field, or just copy the part of the URL that comes after `http://`

Your links looked like this: http://http//floridain... (see the problem?)

And yes, I looked at the links even with them being screwed-up, as I took the time to find out what was wrong with the links.

@AirborneJT I agree taxes are necessary. I just disagree on how they are spent. On your point about education, I live in California where our legislators (liberals) and governor (moonbeam) just pasted a law giving college finical aid to illegal aliens in what they call the dream act. The Cal State system also has raised the tuition rates.
@ jteachey1 And NO I have not missed the point because it points out the hypocrisy of the left and the double standards they have.

@ Craig: It`s not all about the taxes and welfare. Granted, there will always be lazy people who don`t believe that they`re entitled to money.

No, I am going to agree that capitalism has great advantages, but it has almost become an absolute statement that it`s the best possible system. Like any other political or economic system, capitalism is perfect in a perfect world. But one flaw that has come to surface is that everything has a price. People who can`t afford health care aren`t taken care of. People who can`t afford college go uneducated. It`s instances like these that cause unrest. While I don`t think I deserve money without working, I do believe that I should be entitled to an education and health care regardless of my income.

I believe taxes are necessary. We should all work and pay taxes, but we should also all be entitled basic necessities to improve our standard of living.

@ jtrebowski Yourwords “, or using the "N" word as one guy did,” So you base your opinion of the whole Tea Party one person. I thought you liberals were supposed to be the objective ones. I am sure there are racist in the Tea Party just like there are in the OWS crowd or did you miss the video of the young guy screaming at an old Jewish man? And speaking of racist how about Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Van Jones?? Each side has them so don’t act like your group is more civil then another.

So a person starts a company and it becomes successful. He begins to hire people and buy products to keep his company growing. Somewhere down the line he is making say $500k and worth 1-2million. He is and has paid all his taxes along the way, along with all sales tax, unemployment and all the other government fees it takes to run a business. He has also employed say up to 100 people who have also paid there taxes from the jobs the Company founder has created for them. Now take your typical protester or welfare recipient or liberal who is complaining that the evil rich corporations and companies need to pay more taxes. They have made taking from the system an art form, and pay little if any in taxes.
Now honestly ask yourself who is and is not PAYING THEIR FAIR SHARE??? Again hypocrisy..

@ jtrebowski Well if they have permits and are lawfully able to carry a gun then god bless them, and yes I think it is fine for a responsible person to carry a firearm. Next… show me a post where you were upset at Bush & Cheney being portrayed as Hitler, Satan ect… then maybe you will have some credibility about your witchdoctor rant. I doubt you will be able to so once again you have shown your hypocrisy. Public Unions are much more of a problem for this economy that Wall Street, all you have to do is look at the mess California is in to see what liberal programs do to the economy. And if you are going to tell me that Arnold was a republican then you really have your head in the sand. And they were thugs for attacking anyone with a different opinion and destroying the Capitol Building like a bunch of college kids on a bender.

Actually, that`s about all the evidence you have. Nada. (It`s also evidence you don`t know how to link)

The only connection I can find between that image and the Tea Party is that a Doctor forwarded the image a member of the Tea Party. Does that mean if I send an e-mail to Obama discussing Socialism I get to call him a Socialist?

But, what`s good for one president is good for another:

The European and the Wall Street protesters (along with the thugs in Wisconsin) want the government and big business to pay for there every whim. They have no personal responsibility for their own well being. And if you think the unions are not paying people to show up then you are the IDIOT. To label the entire Tea Party as racist just shows your ignorance. The fact that they are protesting isn’t unpatriotic, but the demands they are asking for is. $20/ hr living wage just because you breathe air….COME ON!!! Add that up for the entire country and see what that comes up to. Again you liberals are proving your hypocrisy buy thinking these people are the next civil rights movement and anyone who disagrees with them (Tea Partiers ) are a bunch of racist hillbillies who don’t deserve to have an opinion.

@Crakrjak: You seem to be forgetting the cozy relationship the British government had with the East India Trading Company. It seems the OWS people have more in common with the original protestors than your phony astro-turf Tea-Parties sponsored by "Freedomworks" with free advertising by Fox "News", and Driven by the Koch Brothers. Oh, and your assertion that "whomever" shows up can get paid is ignorant. Read your own link again. You sure wouldn`t get hired by them.

Ever hear the phrase "the tyranny of the majority"? Direct democracy only works in small, like minded groups. The main reason we have a representative republic is that, in theory, wiser statesmen will prevent the masses from making rash and hasty decisions that would be harmful to their own interests. This is most important with foreign relations and defense issues. Again, that`s the theory.

I think direct democracy would quickly balkanize the country and ultimately destroy it. Representative republic isn`t perfect, but I don`t see anything better.

I just wished those complaining now for the most part had stuck up for the "Tea Party" protesters before.

Hypocrisy though the norm, IMHO is what is unpatriotic!

Sean Hannity LOVES the protesters!:

"You know, the average American Taxpayer knows that at the end of the day they are going to be on the hook for the trillions and trillions of dollars that we are using to bail out these companies, some of whom that have been irresponsible, and they are expressing their frustration. Which I think is quintessentially American."

They then ask my with a smirk like something is wrong "but why"?. I tell them very seriously, I DON`T ENJOY WATCHING VERY RICH MEN PLAY SPORTS". Then they try to justify them getting paid the amounts they do, even the "lower paid players". I lol at them and move on...

Protesting per se is neither democratic nor unpatriotic. It actually matters WHAT you are protesting. Protesting against tyrannical dictators is democratic. Protesting against the constitution and the right of people to keep what they earn is unpatriotic.

Sure they should not have received big bonuses, but protesting the companies, like OWS, is just stupid. They are so worried about what someone else is getting that they ignore what we ALL are SPENDING. The politicians ultimately made the decision to bail the companies out, so they should take the blame. The bonuses were big indeed, but still were a very very small fraction of the bailout. It`s like buying an expensive 7 course gourmet meal with fine wine, then focusing all your wrath on the fact that they didn`t give you an after dinner mint.
