Ah Alex Jones, the fear mongering voice for controlled opposition. Nice to see that he's out and about.
I hope you are aware that ATS is also part of the controlled opposition.
You cannot control a free thinker who comes up with their own ideas.
Maybe you can control half of ATS, but a lot of us ask questions and think about things.

Did you ask anybody any questions on why they were protesting?
or better yet what results they expected to achieve by protesting?
I'm starting to get the feeling that these occupations are filled with a bunch of followers who are being told what they should be protesting about or demanding.
Thanks for the info.

You and everyone who attends these protests are American heroes

Looks like the real original tea party infiltrated this OWS rally. Good for them.

I just got back home from the Occupy the Fed Dallas protest. Turnout was more than a few hundred people from what I saw (I arrived a little after 5 but I heard people were out there for hours before). Quite the variety of people there. Most signes were End the Fed related/anti-bank, along with Anonymous (the Guy Fawkes masks to), Ron Paul, and more anti-government. Alex Jones was on the mega phone, doing interviews, and shaking almost everybodys hand there. One of the funniest things I heard him shout was....
"You know why the police brought out the gang unit??? Because they also know that the biggest gangsters in America are the bankers and the Fed!!!!!"
I wasnt able to catch all of his speeches, but they should be up on youtube pretty soon.
Unfortunantly, OccupyDallas didnt really show up. Almost all of them decided to stay and protest in Pioneer Park. A couple groups of them decided to show up though, but not very many. The Occupy Dallas groups stood on the west side of Pearl Street, while Occupy the Fed stood on the East side (where the Fed building is). You can see the Occupy Dallas group a little bit in the 2nd to last picture.
The police again were very respectful. They stayed on the sidelines for the most part, plus they halted traffic when some of us needed to cross the road.
That was pretty much the jist of things earlier today. Completely peaceful protest, no violence no arrests, atleast from what I know of. I havent been hearing much about how OccupyDallas is doing at Pioneer Park, other than the police said its okay for them to camp out again.
Oh yea, there were quite a few beautiful women there to.

ETA - Forgot to say we, Occupy the Fed, stretched around most of the east and south sides of the Fed building. Also, I will put some videos up if I can find any either later tonight or tomorrow.edit on 7-10-2011 by buni11687 because: (no reason given)
