@alsobored - that's what makes us American. Pride. Both in country & in oneself. Maybe if other countries try it you'll one day be as successful as us.

...successful...like $15 trillion of debt and a country run by bankers insurance conglomerates and corporations? I'm not saying the rest of the world is in any better shape (apart from Germany) but dude, come on!

What's happening in Egypt isn't the same as a bunch of entitled non-nice individual hippies clogging up private property that ignore requests to leave because they're 'special' and 'have a voice'. I wish I had mommy and daddy to support me while I ignore responsibility.

@Slut etta: Gingrich, Cain, and Romney can all beat Obama. You can be certain one of them will get the nomination.

Obama is an empty suit warming a seat for one of them at this point. SNL is even making fun of him now. Not a good sign, as they rarely make fun of a liberal's policies.

and because there is no viable candidate of any party who can defeat obama we are in for another four years of ineffectual leadership and chaotic financial ruin.

it sucks to be my age but its really going to suck for you young people who have to put up with the consequences of this government.

@ctobin34 Isn't pride one of the seven deadly sins, Mr holier than thou american? Does it not precede fall?

By successful you mean national debt over 100% of GDP?

Please remove your head from your rectum and try to take a sober look around if possible.

@SarahOfBorg: Oh look, a bunch of students who were pacifically protesting and got physically attacked by the police, that's totally not the comparable to Syrians getting run over by tanks

Oh look, some jerk who tried to loot a store got arrested. That's totally the same as Syrians getting run over by tanks in the street.

Guys, the OWS protest was inspired by the Egyptian one, it was kinda a "me too".

The amusing thing the way I see it, is that your president hasn't said anything about the current protests, but has said this statement in the picture.
Doesn't matter if it's exactly the same situation, it's similar at least.

Similar is close enough to make it ironic.

Notice the people in these comments who are against the picture are from the US.(+Canada)
They're just desperately trying to defend the nation's reputation.

Peaceful assembly is allowed, but you can't hold public spaces hostage like the OWS protestors.

vv @student_law: So the protesters have a right to block stuff? OK lets just check their permit to make sure... oh right! lolz!

(hint: they have NO permits at all, ALL OWS protests are by definition illegal)

You can't compare the two... In Egypt they are fighting for the rights we are granted... as for the occupy poeple... we have always been fighting "the man" and always will be, because if one of the "99 percenters" suddenly found them selves in the 1% ... would they want to give it up?... We all sing kum-ba-ya... and save the whales... I would dare some rich guy to go to the protests and offer some "bribes" to see who would take the cash and leave?

Being in Law Enforcement, I think I may have a unique perspective on this issue. Are there bad cops out there - absolutely! However, I'm willing to bet that their is a similar proportion of "bad" people in every respective group. That being said, for the vast majority of issues, cops don't just throw people down for no good reason. Also, another issue that seems to be overlooked: Unless you have personally been in a situation of imminent danger where adreneline levels are extremely high, please refrain from making comments like, "How could he/she do that" and other comments of the like. If you have never been in similar circumstances, then you really can't judge.

Please, please stop comparing what our police are doing to what government forces in the Arab world are doing. Check out the video here showing protestors in Tahir Square literally being beaten to death.

"but these are all non-lethal things. "

really? non-lethal? last i checked firing a 40mm grenade launcher at a person's face was far from non-lethal...

This talk of law breaking and force is very amusing.

I think Margaret Sanger said it best: "...Throughout all the ages, the beacon lights of human progress have been lit by the law-breaker. Moses, the deliverer, was a law-breaker. Christ, the carpenter, was a law-breaker and his early followers practiced their religion in defiance of the law of their time. Joan of Arc was a law-breaker. So, too, were George Washington and the heroes of the American Revolution...Humanity and justice have been displaced by a legal despotism, the chief concern of which is the protection of established interests."

@Student_Law: I think you're misinterpreting the Constitution. The Constitution does not say that your rights are above traffic law; it says that Congress can make no law prohibiting protesting.

This means that you're allowed to protest on your own time and money on private property with the owner's consent without fear of retribution from the government. The founders did not mean that you have the right to forcibly occupy public streets. For example, do I have the right to forcibly come into your house and hold a protest? Why not? Because your right to freedom of speech does not mean that people are forced to provide a platform to you, or listen to you.

You have the right to freedom of speech, but you do not have the right to use force to exercise your freedom of speech; that's a contradiction.

There is no violence in this pic. There is someone being arrested for breaking the law.
