They're indistinguishable from Tea Partiers you know?Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

What I find disturbing is how the media are portraying these people. It's one thing to have a valid point. What makes this country great, contrary to what KS, wee wee, lainie, and our other resident leftists might think, is that we can disagree with one another without any repercussion from an oppressive government. However, there are limits. The Constitution grants us the right to peaceably assemble to petition the government for a redress of grievances. When you trash the property you are occupying, raping the women in your group, stealing from one another, and destroying property in general, whatever message you are trying to convey is going to get lost and your cause is lost before it even gets off the ground and you're going to be looked at as a bunch of snot nosed brats with nothing better to do who were looking for an excuse to be asshats.
That said, even with all of this violence and destruction, the leftist media are choosing to ignore all of that in favor of moving their "progressive" agenda forward. They are obviously behind these clowns and are willing to bury the truth in hopes of creating this idiocy as a way of life which goes against what journalism is supposed to be about. On the other hand, the most peaceful of the movements(Tea Party vs. OWS) is constantly being portrayed as a bunch of violent racists hell bent on dragging this country back to the Jim Crow days even though every single video and account of Tea Party rallies...let me repeat that...EVERY SINGLE Tea Party rally has been peaceful, non combative, not to mention that where the rally had taken place, it ended up cleaner than the way the rallyers found it when they got there. Thankfully, there are alternative forms of media where the truth does come out and as we've seen in this thread, it obvious which movement is best for this country.Deplorably Proud To Be An American

3 Charged With Dealing Crack; Occupy Boston ‘Deteriorating
’BOSTON (CBS) – Three people arrested Thursday night inside the Occupy Boston camp have been charged with dealing crack cocaine.
WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Carl Stevens, who spent the night at the camp a few weeks ago, talked to a man who spends most nights at Occupy Boston. He said things have gone downhill.
“Things have changed drastically. It seems to be deteriorating,” the man told Carl. “A lot of drug use, alcohol use, people getting into fights… It’s deteriorating pretty quick.”"Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings..."
