Indeed. I haven't listened to Glenn Beck in quite awhile, but he was talking about this years ago already and it seems to be panning out exactly as
he mentioned. After all, he is the one who "took down" Van Jones.

Right and left may be conflicting party scenarios, but the differences are very real. I for one am far right by believing and hard work, a true free
market, and I am very much against any kind of social handouts. Whereas the far left is very much for government regulation, social justice, and
plenty of handouts. The differences are very real and they are not going to go away any time soon.
I do however agree with your synopsis and the problems at large. I do not, however, believe that any amount of peaceful protesting will bring about
Glass Steagall again, and even if it did, it would far from fix the problems we face.

It may be inherent throughout corporations AND government, but government makes the rules for the corporations to abide by. Therefore it is the
government that is the cancer, the corporations are merely tumors. You can target the tumors time and time again, but that still isn't going to get
rid of the underlying problem.

We need to EXPIRE peaceful resolution. *sigh*
How many times have I heard this? And each time peaceful resolution accomplishes nothing, we STILL need to wait to try again... and again... AND
AGAIN. When do you draw the line? My OP lists four specific times when peaceful resolution sought to bring about the wants of the citizenship of this
country and all four times, despite the MILLIONS that called for such a change - IT WAS IGNORED.
People like you will draw a line in the sand and each time it is reached will move it farther away in the hope that maybe THIS time peaceful change
will do something. Reality sets in and you realize it does nothing because no one is listening. Scratch that, people are listening, not doing anything
about it, and neither is the government.

Instead of complaining and accomplishing nothing, as has happened for the past 60 years, you act out. You show the government and the corporations
that you mean business, and if they don't abide by what the people are saying - YOU CRUSH THEM and install new governors to lead us. It is that
These people are supposed to be protecting us and making laws to protect us from the greed of these corporations, but instead they would make laws to
line their own pockets and continue to ignore us. Nothing is going to change unless we change our outlooks and our methods of action.

The protests on the west coast and in Boston have already turned violent. The Occupyers have been talking about it all night. There was even a death
reported in San Diego. What are the people going to do about it? Absolutely nothing. Back off maybe because none of them are dedicated enough to do
what needs to be done.

Yes. You are right. Just like every one before it, THIS is the one. The BIG kahuna. These are the protests where government is finally going to listen
and it is going to bring about the ultimate paradigm shift. The corrupt politicians are going to willfully leave office, the corporations are going to
return all their stolen capital to help pay off the US debt, and then rainbows and lollipops will grow on sidewalks everywhere so that every child may
experience the sweetness.
And then you woke up. You are a dreamer.
