    Funny how it didn't bother them that the Tea Party and returning vets were the subject of a DHS report about extremism.

    Since when did trespassing, disorderly conduct, relieving yourself in public, public sex acts, destruction to property, theft, sexual assault, etcetera become "peaceful"?

    I really hope they continue to worry about OWS, it means we have their attention. This is no game of pretend populism like the Tea Party, this is the real deal.

    Riots and serial killers also get our attention.

    What's your point? Have you joined with the others who fear populism to the point that even the worst banker slug looks good? They are going to make everyone, even the president, make a public choice between the 1% and the 99% since Wall Street has made it impossible to serve both.

    Actually, I'm saying the OWS has our attention just as a serial killer and riots would have it. Sort of like a current events freak show.

    If you think the DHS classifying you as an extremist group means "they" are paying attention to you you are a lot dumber than I thought you were.

    What no mace???

    Pansies!


    And what the hell did you CONZ think civil protest over government policies would LOOK LIKE? Teabagger rallies? You guys didn't accomplish dick. You elected people who haven't accomplished dick.
    OWS got people TALKING ABOUT INCOME DISPARITY in this country. Something that hasn't been discussed since the GREAT DEPRESSION!
    The pendulum has swung CONZ. Either recognize it and get out of the way or be whacked.
