You may indeed find a post or two where I give a bit of what I am given. However you'll never find a post where I just attack people and points without trying to engage the ideas. That is what BR is doing here. He doesn't even attempt to address the substance of the irony. Claiming the cartoon and by proxy the person posting it are intellectual dishonest means he's just screaming liar and walking away from it. The people in the OWS movement are indeed demanding more government while being harmed by the very entity they are demanding action from. If it were a church and the HIV virus he'd be screaming bloody murder. Here he fails to see people suffering from their own delusions.

Remember why whenever we see a sign from a Tea Party protester and it has a spelling error it is proof they are all idiots?

Well what about a note with a bunch of spelling errors and a crapload of fragments?

Why? How do you support that? Do you even know what they are proposing? I don't think you do. All of them are proposing reductions in government spending, tax reform, regulatory reform and energy independence to stimulate the economy. Do you disagree with these ideas? The fact is that no matter how disgraceful and horrendous this President has been, you cannot bring yourself to even consider voting for a Republican. That's because your blindly partisan.

Refute it. He calls out Republicans in almost every speech. When the GOP doesn't want to rubber stamp his absurd proposals, he has a temper tantrum and calls them every name in the book. He's practically Nixon.

Governments are now calling "Occupy" protesters a domestic terrorist threat

Now the gloves are off. The government is throwing around the "terror" word. You know, the word they've used to justify invading Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya and slaughtering hundreds of thousands of innocent people.

All people have the right to peacefully assemble and petition their government for redress of grievances.

I may not agree with what some of the "Occupy" protesters are saying, but if we don't defend to the death their right to say it, we'll be next.

They have the right to say whatever they want, no matter how idiotic or stupid their comments are.

However, they have no right to illegally occupy anything, and force is a 100% appropriate and acceptable method to remove the scoundrels.

I will both agree and disagree on this one. First, using the "T" word is over the top...agreed. But I disagree that they are "peacefully assembling to redress grievances." They are camping out, occupying public and private lands, creating health and safety hazards, disrupting commerce and free movement of others, destroying private property and costing taxpayers millions. Protests are fine and perfectly appropriate. You want to assemble tens of thousands of people at the Reflecting Pool, great. You want to get a few hundred people together with signs and go to City Hall...great. You don't get to set up Druggie Santa's Workshop and built a little community with your merry band of elves.

A joke? That is flatly wrong:

Mitt Romney: Holds a joint JD/MBA from Harvard Business and Law. CEO of Bain Capital. Organized and saved the 2002 Winter Olympics. Former GOP Governor of Massachusetts, eliminating a projected $3 Billion shortfall while implementing a healthcare plan you 1) claim is the same as Obama's and 2) support.

Newt Gingrich: B.A., M.A. and Ph.d in History. Member of Congress, Speaker of the House, noted author and historian. Implemented welfare reform and balanced budgets during what you perceive as "the glory years." Responsible for pushing through largest capital gains tax cut in history. Force behind passage of Congressional Accountability Act, subjecting members of Congress to laws they pass. Author of the Contract with America.


Now, if you don't support either one of these men because of their negatives, or even their party--that's understandable. But neither is a joke. From any sane perspective, the fact that we elected a completely unqualified community organizer as POTUS is the real joke.

Or maybe it's this? "Senate Republicans had spoken against the nomination, reflecting their concerns about the creation of the bureau, which was established in last year's Wall Street reform bill.". No, it couldn't possibly be they simply have concerns. Not at all.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Council of the City of Pittsburgh does support and declare solidarity with Occupy Pittsburgh and the Occupy Wall Street movement, exercising First Amendment rights in a free, open, peaceful, and productive manner, toward the better condition of our citizens and of these United States.

To answer your second question, the Tea Party was not beaten or pepper sprayed. They didn't need resolutions passed stating that it's cool for them to hang out in their silly hats with their guns they frequently brought to rallies and their signs demanding the government stay out of their medicare. The police weren't brutalizing them.

Yes, the Tea Party is flu of ignorant morons just like you describe. They are not supported because they are racist, idiotic fools. Got it. Of course, maybe they weren't pepper sprayed because they weren't fucking setting up base camp on public and private land, doing drugs, shitting on police cars, hurling racial epithets and serving as the best ad for Dial® soap that one could imagine.

BR was just schooled.

Isn't it crazy how cause and effect are some sort of foreign concept here?

"No one pepper sprayed the Tea Party!!!!"

"Did the Tea Party surround a bunch of cops, demand they release people already arrested and declare they weren't going to let them leave until they complied with their demands?"

The Tea Party didn't surround and threaten the cops and AMAZINGLY, they didn't get pepper sprayed! It's also like pepper spraying someone is a REACTION to their ACTIONS.

I guess causality is some sort of 1% concept made up to keep people down and oppressed.

Here's a fun bit.
A future Democratic presidential candidate, (He's got the proper community organizer cred) is breaking into foreclosed homes and "giving" them to families.

The phrase that pays......

There's always technicalities involved in it. But the fact of the matter is if there's empty homes, they should be filled with families that need them.

Property ownership, that's a technicality. The mob will rid you of that technicality and your understanding of it very quickly.

Oh, look: Now LA will have to make budget cuts because of the costs associated with the Occupy movement. http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2011/...cupy-la-costs/

Funny how every time a Republican wants to balance a budget by cutting, they are heartless and hate the poor. They don't want to pay teachers! They want people to starve! They are immoral! But there's nothing to see here. These protestors just helped take money from some of the very same people they claim to support.

Waste removal was only necessary once the storm troopers destroyed the protesters' encampments and gear after unnecessarily using chemical weapons and extremely violent force against the peacefully gathered.

Yes. Prior to the first eviction notice over the allegedly unclean conditions of the New York City Occupy location, the occupiers themselves formed clean-up crews to keep up the park's sanitation. Furthermore, the city refused to allow the installation of portable toilets (WHICH WERE DONATED AND READY TO BE PLACED). Strange how it was only after these portable toilets were denied that Fox News (and the political outsider echochamber consisting of SDW, et al) started harping on protesters allegedly shitting or peeing everywhere. What a really weird coincidence.

Right BR, go with that narrative. Just keep making crap up. See, people only defecated on police cars because there were no public toilets, which apparently the city is obligated to provide. Even if donated, they are not obligated to help people camp out. That's not protesting. It's illegal.

If you have a problem with people judging the whole tea party movement based on the actions of what you say are a few isolated nutters, you don't get to do the same with the Occupy movement.

No, they were not "isolated nutters" at all in Occupy, and I think you know it. I'm not saying it was the majority, but there were many cases of:
  • Anti-semitic rants
  • Anti-capitlist rants
  • Calls to "eat" the rich
  • Public urination, defecation
  • Drug use
  • Rape
  • Murder

Contrast that with the nearly zero confirmed cases of racism in the Tea Party. Funny, I didn't even hear about ANY of the above from the liberal media when the Tea Party was demonstrating. The TP had many thousands more people, and virtually none of the above. Yet, the movements are comparable. Righto.

This is a complete lie. The protesters were attempting to "occupy" streets, bridges and buildings.

This is a second lie. The police were necessary for a multitude of reasons. There were thefts, rapes, sexual assaults, murders even within the "occupy" campsites. That doesn't even begin to address the barricades and other items necessary to get them to place nice with their neighbors.

They are under no obligation to present an objective view. They are activists with cellphones who will say and do anything to help their cause. It is very clear based off the pepper spray footage here in California that those in the "occupy" movement will say and do anything to advance their agenda.

Strange how it was only after these portable toilets were denied that Fox News (and the political outsider echochamber consisting of SDW, et al) started harping on protesters allegedly shitting or peeing everywhere. What a really weird coincidence.

The park was not of size and nature to be used in such a manner. Camping is not speech. The allegations of excessive noise, lawlessness and trash started far before what you claim. You only became aware of it at that point because the pretty tune and picture on the pretty mainstream media sources changed and likewise the nice almost exclusively Democratic mayors in most of these blue state big cities had to address how filthy, nasty and lawless these actions had become.

The occupy movement as a whole never took permits, never paid for the use of facilities, never actually engaged in speech instead of trying to camp or seize property and this was true of all the movements. They wanted to "exist" until their actual grievances could sort of bubble through the filth and rise to sort of collective consciousness. In actuality there have been reports from sources you don't care to READ because they don't involve cartoons, jokes and belittling ideas instead of addressing them and they clearly link the perma-protester leadership to Democratic sources.

Hey Trumptman, I thought "being tough on crime" was a clarion call amongst conservatives? The actions of Occupy Wall Street (or what you have read in the corporate media about it) that seem to enrage you so much are tiny and insignificant in the world of criminality.

If you have to employ diatribe, how about engaging the humungous and ongoing crime spree in the financial and banking sectors and big business in general. Or does that challenge make you feel uncomfortable?

I'm sure if you are reading my posts rather than just ranting, you'd see I've said the banks are providing cover for corrupt government. You fix crony capitalism by demanding the biggest piece of the pie aka government get out o the business of distributing everything. When government is always the solution it is also always the problem.
