I don't know where to begin, you want protestors to denounce the crazies that protest under OWS through courts? Legally force certain people to not
be able to claim OWS association. Yes this leaderless organization can so easily go to court. Which individual who isn't a leader of OWS is going to
take a violent anarchist to court? Who is going to deal with legal fees? That is too much wasted resources when the problems are not worth the
What the hell are you talking about? Who said anything about going to court? Courts mess up a lot more than they straighten out, and I would think
going to court would be the LAST means anyone would try to use to disassociate themselves from rabble,
If you can't get 'em out without getting a court involved, you've really got no business standing up for yourself anywhere else, either,
You point to the park as private land, okay very well, does that change anything? A private citizen cannot force another private citizen off private
land that neither of them own.
Must be some pretty weak citizens where you live, Seriously - that was a response to your claim that it was public land. I personally don't care what
land I'm on, I'm not going to associate myself with people who will harm me and ruin my good name. OWS apparently doesn't have that sort of concern
for their name.
A few people can be extremist and build molotov cocktails.. but tell me how many protestors do you think would make weapons with them if they found
out (none have),
Don't know, don't care to find out.
or how many protestors would stick around if someone fire bombed macy's? maybe the 5 people who did it, but the rest of the protestors wouldn't
condone or support those things.. it's not in the general spirit of OWS.
"Stick around"? You mean they would RUN FROM TROUBLE?
1) Good protestors do not run from trouble, they PROTEST IT.
2) Good citizens do not run from trouble, they CONQUER IT.
The MSM bias in your words is profound, and if you don't watch MSM (just read negative OWS articles from MSM websites posted on online), well gosh.
Nope, don't watch it, and I don't limit my reading to partisan rants. I don't read MSM website at all. Well, gosh. Where does that leave that
argument? I KNOW it wasn't a transparent and timid attempt to discredit me, now was it?
The military thing is just strange now.. OWS members who break the law get arrested or ticketed (some even get arrested and ticketed who weren't
breaking the law).. if someone in the military breaks the law they are punished as well. How is OWS wearing bad things like a mask? That is a really
bizarre thing to say because it makes absolutely no sense.. it's the opposite of what OWS is doing.. they denounce the bad stuff, they don't roll
around reveling in it.
OK, I'm not going to keep beating this dead horse. I've told you a couple of times now, SPECIFICALLY what I mean. I'm beginning to think you are
deliberately misunderstanding it, since I told you SPECIFICALLY what I mean, a couple of times now. I'll say it one more time, and then I'm done
with that, The military SELF POLICES. They take care of their own messes. OWS does NOT self police - they try to get other folks to take care of their
I'm not comparing military jails to civilian jails, I'm not comparing MPs to civilian police, I'm comparing an organization that handles it's own
problems with one who whines and thinks I just shouldn't associate those people they are willingly hanging out with to them.
Gee, OWS welcomes all with open arms, then spends the next two months saying "I'm not with stupid over there, I just invited him to join my club,
but he ain't a card carrying member or anything!"
