John Birch is alive and well on Beemaster :roll:
Nationwide our citizen police have arrested over one thousand "occupiers." How many from Wall Street have received the same (well) deserved treatment? You must understand who 'our' police work for under these circumstances. As with any abuser, violence is only acceptable from top down. Retribution from the abused is never acceptable. That's why they are peaceful....for now. One must not mistake pacifism (or liberalism) for someone unwilling to fight and die for a just cause.
FYI; the original plan with OWS was to 'occupy' the park in front of JP Chase at Chase Plaza, you know, those guys (and gals)who stole billions, helped crash our economy, took billions in tax payer payoffs, passes out multimillion dollar bonuses, refuses to lend capital (despite being charged a NEGATIVE RATE by US), and is still lobbying Congress to gouge us more and kill recent regs that might put them all in jail if they continue the present course), but the CEO (Jamie Dimon) caught wind of it and wrote a check out to the NY Police Foundation for 4.6 million and the Chase Plaza was 'pre-emptively' shut down.
This is but one tiny example of how authority works in America (and the rest of the world too) and is exactly why people are in the streets today camping out on concrete. Even tea partiers have been joining OWS since the Tea party has pretty much been exposed for the tool they've become "from all the money" that poured into it, along with all those nasty politicians ;)
Thin skinned? Look in the mirror. Kathyp is hardly a puppet master, sorry, although she might be working for some of them :-D.
