Greetings casual viewers and members,
....at this point i would like it made apparent to everyone that one should take carefull consideration and contemplate the time scale involved regarding these events that spilled over from Europe to within the U.S. and within 2012 will have the same or similiar news and reactions from within the Asian continent.
Thank you for reading.

One of the last questions
"I believe that, if violence is to occur, that those responsible should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and that they should expect such prosecution as a necessary outcome."
I dont really know how to answer this, because laws are put in place by the very people who are being protested against...and the punishment lessened for those who enfoce the laws, compared to the "peons/people"... And I think that is also a major issue at play here, certain groups of people being "more equal" than others...
Its pretty obvious the cops are allowed to swing away with clubs, let their sprays go, while the people have to just sit there and absorb the hits , and even get arrested after being beaten... For just doing something our constitution should protect us againstedit on 7-10-2011 by morder1 because: (no reason given)

I'm curious; how do you feel about those who attend these protests for the express purpose of causing trouble, engaging in violence and who cause the problems? Don't you see them as phonies?

governments to blame then why protest wall street? pretty simple
take the tpm they werent happy they werent a bunch of happy campers but what did they do?
they took it to the people and exercised their power by their vote the way it was meant to be and what happened was a change in congress a change in other elections and stopped the democratic party cold in its tracks.
and they are still around and what exaclty has ows done but get arrested?
this is a constitutional republic the system is setup to exact change bunch of "rebels without a cause or a clue"
will not accomplish anything whatsoever.edit on 7-10-2011 by neo96 because: (no reason given)
There are so many diverse reasons people are protesting and its so disorganized that you would have to poll with a separate set of questions for each reason people are protesting. Not to mention those who are just there because they think its cool or good entertainment, combined with those who are just there trying to get on camera for attention.
Now that Soros, MoveOn and all the other groups he funds and controls, combined with the Unions getting in on it, its such a muddled mess its meaningless.
Also now that the Democrats have claimed it as their own it belongs to them. It's just more Partisan crap by the people who caused the problems. After all the whole housing crisis was pretty much caused by the Dodd / Frank team who forced the Banks to make the loans. Where are the people protesting the people who have claimed this over the last few days Next thing that will happen is Obama will try and use it to help him win, then it will be a real piece of crap and the protestors will be his flunkies as many of them are now.
Anyone else see the irony in how its going? Protesting the people who are funding it and controlling it?
I find it terribly interesting that those who claim to hate the rich and powerful are in the hip pocket of George Soros. Liars all!

If you want 100% purity and fairness from the other side, before the Robber Barons make nice -- good luck with that. But it seems you expect more integrity from the OWS movement than from the people who you inadvertently defend by criticizing such peccadillos.
