WOW, so you mean to tell me
these guys went and fought
because they had to?
They fought for there mother, father,
wives, children, and country?
Ultimately they fought for the FREEDOM
of the WORLD, AND this is how they are
respected?
Go punch a cop, break into the YMCA, BREAK INTO CITY HALL,
PROTEST PROTEST break stuff make them hear you
if they will not listen.
BURNING THE AMERICAN FLAG takes it to a whole
other level!!! You do not protests against the freedoms you have
been given. The occupiers are so dumb they are burning
the constitution, burning what this country has stood for,
burning the thing that even GAVE THEM THE RIGHT
TO DO IT!

Grow up !!

Hitlers son's, son, would be shooting
these people on sight if that American flag
did not wave and prevail in victory
over Nazi Germany.
Lucky not in SYRIA protesting
that is what you call standing up
for what you believe in, being faced with
death and REAL BULLETS mind you..
NOT RUBBER ONES or some fart gas..

Get Real, these people are sick.

Back on Page 4 I had an exchange with XPLodER which was all too brief. We talked about "'redress" and what it might mean to OWS.

I was left with the impression, and PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong, that OWS wanted to bring thousands of people to Washington to draw up a petition of grievances, get it approved by those assembled, then present it to Congress. OWS would then stay there, occupying, until bills to address their grievances were passed into law.

Have I got that pretty much right? If so, do you have any really rough ideas of what those laws might look like? i suppose there would be some tax changes, increasing the taxes on the 1%. Eliminate the Fed? balance the budget? Any clues what it might look like?


yes sir

On the election weekend in March, the polls will open and the voters will return to this web page to vote for the candidates they want to speak for the 99% at the National General Assembly. We believe that an election of delegates is vital so that critics of the 99% Movement will be prevented from claiming that the National General Assembly is an oligarchy, elitist or somehow undemocratic. It is anticipated that each of the local General Assemblies in the United States will select people to run for delegate.

You seem to be confusing today's events with something that happened many years ago.

I know many ex-vets and soldiers have joined the occupy protests, so stop spouting off such gibberish.

Here's some strong cases of soliders and vets supporting occupy.

www.greenleft.org.au...


The support from former and current soldiers for the Occupy movement against corporate greed was brought into the spotlight when Iraq War veteran Scott Olsen suffered a fractured skull after being shot in the head by a tear gas canister fired by Oakland police on October 25.

Hold up now. Freedoms are not "given" to us. That implies that they can be taken away by the giver. Do you know what They did not break into the YMCA, the YMCA opened it's doors and allowed them to enter. The only reason the police use RUBBER BULLETS instead of NOT RUBBER ONES is because they would be annihilated by the public blowback and they know it. Here's something you should look into:

inalienable
adjective
not alienable; not transferable to another or capable of being repudiated: inalienable rights.

ty for posting this though i feel as if it will not be of use to this crowd of people.... some fail to realize that we were born an empty slate, we were taught limits and laws, that this is not life, this is slavery, i have imagined life and life is what i have been searching for. If i can live better i will do any means necessary... im already dying, i dont want our children to die too.

he was there... he was standing up for something, were you? no you were at home crying over a flag that you thought was an american flag.... if you wanna come over to my house you can burn my pirate flags, they were pretty cheap we can cry about them together too if you want.... if he was a patriot good, the others well, misguided yes but they tried, just remember this is just starting america does not know this yet. We will learn fast and they will surely underestimate us.

Anyone who went through the 60's protest (of any flavor) knows agents infiltrated the groups to incite violence as a way to demean the movements. It's not spiracy...it's on the record.

So your in agreement with Pops that this guy doesn't know
Liberty from his Butt Hole?

Very telling.
I guess that book he is holding at the end of the vid
has his list of "handouts" you speak off.

Meanwhile, he is the only one with the balls to stand there while most everyone else took off and hid. Many of those same people who hid will come out against the military when it suites their Anti-US views. Yet, now the NAVY man is a hero.

Good for him standing his ground. Maybe the rest of the Bozos will learn.

I don't agree with wars or anything, but this has been annoying me for a long time...what the hell is an "illegal" war? What exactly do you think would make a war "legal?"
Is there ever such thing as a "legal" war?

Look I'm against OWS as much as the next guy with a job...

But... Here's the REAL question

does Patriotism trump Descent?

OWS thinks theres a problem in this country (we who do not support OWS, know the problem kinda resides with OWS) but anyways thats besides the point....

Yeah I have a problem with people burning the flag... But we live in a country where that's legal... if it wasn't legal I think i'd have a problem with that more....

Freedom of speech and expression is still allowed in this country (just look at OWS and the mockery they are making of it)

oh a tid bit of information: hanging the flag upside down was originally a military distress signal... NOT a sign of disrespect.
