I loved Black Flag but for some reason Henry Rollins always looked like someone I would hate. I don`t know why, he just looks like he would be the guy stuffing kids heads into the school toilets. I usually find him to be level headed and right on point though, so maybe I`m wrong.

Is there a requirement that to be an entertainer, you have to be a complete fapping idiot?

They both said "consensus", I don`t think it means what they think it means.

@Comagirl123, I see the whole thing as more of a general disasisfaction with how the wealth and power of the US is distributed in what`s supposed to be a democratic society. As a country, we`re very divided on almost every issue, but the common unifying thread here is that corporations, wealth`s hidden influence on politics, and the games played with the stock market are largely responsible for the current state of the US and global economy.
As for a list of demands...these are incredibly complex issues with a lot of different opinions on how they should be best addressed. But overall our governmetn has got to start working for the benefit of the greatest number of citizens possible, not just the 51% who promise to support them in the next election.

Seriously, grasping for straws if this is supposed to be intelligent. I love the "if Fox is vilifying this, it must be working argument.". That means the Tea Party was way more successful, being that it was vilified by every other network. Thanks, ya burn out.

I`ve been following the OWS demonstrations with great interest. I actually support the idea of demonstrating against corporate greed and the actions of the banks etc. My issue with the whole thing is the lack of specific goals these demonstrators want to accomplish. If you look at the most successful demonstrations that we see today, they always seem to be about one specific thing. For example, Greenpeace raised their concern about Mattel using rain forest destroying companies for creating Barbies cardboard box. These demonstrations were successful (yay for Mattel) because they had one goal they were after. If they had said that Mattel should stop destroying nature, without going to specifics, I don`t think it would have amounted to anything.

But please, enlighten me if I am mistaken. I`m sure the American users of this site know a lot more about these demonstrations than I. Have the demonstrators issued a so called list of demands?

"let`s sit around and waste millions of tax payer dollars and call it protesting"

More money is wasted on the wars, not to mention whatever was spent on your public education.

"What`s your general consensus"

A single person doesn`t have a consensus, he/she has an opinion. Consensus is the agreed upon opinion of a group of people.

The "reporter" must be from Texas. sheesh.

Tedgp; are you trollin? Mass protests can change anything, and always has done. Slavery, womens rights, the peasants revolt. All these things changed when people came together. Anyone who thinks it`s irrefutable that the `99%` can`t change anything is naive.

Yeahhhh, cuz absolutely nothing changed the other times people rose up and united against shenanigans...

I`m gona go whip my black slave, work 7 days a week by force, smack a woman for trying to vote, and legally attack gay people now.

Oh right, mass action put an end to all those things. But you`re right, nothing ever changes from this stuff.
