    1. "Pelosi Supports Occupy Wall Street Movement"
    Pelosi Supports Occupy Wall Street Movement - ABC News

    "Obama, Cantor spar over Occupy Wall Street"
    Obama, Cantor spar over Occupy Wall Street - Oct. 7, 2011

    "White House press spokesman Jay Carney said the Republican leader's criticism of the Wall Street protests was "hypocrisy unbound," when compared to his support of Tea Party protests. He said both were examples of American democratic traditions." Ibid.

    2. New York Magazine gives a run-down on the Pee Party....and, by extension, the Democrat leaderaship:

    a. 50% are 20-29; 65% between 20 and 39.

    b. majority male.

    c. 37% Proclaimed that capitalism can’t be saved; it’s inherently immoral!
    Combined with those who wouldn't give their belief, that is over half of 'em.

    d. Pop quiz!
    The proposal to prohibit banks from engaging in both client trading and proprietary trading is called …
    Glass-Steagall Act: 40
    Volcker Rule: 6
    Buffett Rule: 11
    Elizabeth Warren Bill: 11
    Didn’t Answer: 32
    The correct answer is “Volcker Rule.”

    e. The country with the best government in the world is …
    "Canada. It’s most like the U.S. but more the way I want.”
    “Denmark.”
    “I don’t accept the premises of this question.

    f. 60% of 'em didn't vote in the 2010 midterm elections.

    g. Explain how you would fix Wall Street.
    “A maximum-wage law.”
    “President Elizabeth Warren."
    “Burn it down.”

    h. This must be why the Democrat leaders support the Pee Party:
    34% Convinced the U.S. government is no better than, say, Al Qaeda!

    Right. Capitalism is as immoral as grading systems in schools. I want an A, dammit!

    Then we can have morons who design our cars' brakes and who do our heart surgery.

    You can post the front page of the Communist Party USA website here and without a header, you would say it's either the Dem Party or the Crapupy Wall Street

    This is one of the most effective posts I've seen, as it serves as the key to all of your other posts.

    This morning, stalwart NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg showed what he was made of, giving in to the Pee Party and preventing the police from removing same.
    This is a good outcome for several reasons...

    two of my reasons:
    1. As Rasmussen has pointed out, the longer the public is exosed to a movement, the less is the approval.

    2. The nature of this movement needs time to show its face....as follows:

    "NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Just a few hours after protesters learned they’d be able to stay in Zuccotti Park indefinitely, violence broke out as a group marched away from it."
    Protesters Clash With NYPD Officers After Occupy Wall Street Demonstrators March Toward Wall Street « CBS New York

    It's funny that these people are the same people that mourned over the loss of Steve Jobs.

    One of Americas greatest examples of a capitalist.

    The irony is just to much.

    I wonder if these Pee Partiers know that the tents they sleep in come from a big business?

    do you want to be called the tea bag party again?

    You have no moral standing to call OWS the pee party if you dont think the tea party should be called the tea bag party.
