Hmmm? This attendance by the US Marines in uniform could bite them when they get back to base.
Active duty military told no uniforms in protests
Military guidelines state that troops may attend demonstrations only in the United States, only when they are off base and off duty, and, most critically, only when they are out of uniform.
They had better be careful. For the most part, I have not paid much attention to this protest, their message, or activities on Wallstreet. They seem like your usual socialist and communist lot? Spread the wealth, eat the rich, and so on as so forth. They ought go back to their coffee shops or college campuses to spew spew their propaganda. I agree the little guy is getting raked over the coils. I had that feeling long before these protesters left Long Island and the Hamptons to occupy Wallstreet. Who are they kidding? Go back to Starbucks or entertain themselves with their smartphones and IPads. They are just looking for attention, and I would be amazed if these activists truly come from the lifestyles they claim to be in support of. Very skeptical about this engagement on Wallstreet. I guess I am a perpetual cynic? As for these Marines, if they are on active duty it would be in their best interests to use caution before proceeding.

I still believe Socialism is just a gateway to Communism. As for social programs who said I was against them? I never once mentioned social programs. They serve their purpose, and as long as they are properly funded. At present they seem to be doing more harm than good? They are facing fiscal paralysis and not only social security but other programs. That discussion is for another time.
I am not buying the propaganda by these protesters. Let me reiterate, I may not be following them like your usual sports team or sitcom, but I have seen here and there what they are saying and doing. I am on the fence about them. I recall reading and hearing about eating the rich and distributing the wealth. Standard ideology of the radical left. Now, I could be wrong in my assessment, but that is what I have seen thus far. I have no quarrels about the protests and that is their right, but their message gets not traction with me. Thanks for your reply, but I have to agree to disagree.
