    "Mostly non-violent" OWS movement get to violent, stinky or just too rape-y be a going concern anymore? I mean, if the much ballyhooed Romney/Koch fundraiser can't draw them out in numbers what will? Granted they still have organization, money and an airplane (briefly) but where are the people?

    It's the way the game is played. Wanting to change rules doesn't mean one has to put their head in a guillotine in the mean time. We're progressives not idiots.

    Does putting one's "head in a guillotine" refer to actually attending a mostly non-violent OWS rally? Or as I assume, did you mean that metaphor to mean standing up to the man in general? Obviously each carries risk so it's kinda hard to tell.

    As to "we're progressives not idiots" well...

    Two arrested trying to crash Romney fundraiser, police say - latimes.com

    That's some fine (text book even) displays of chronic idiocy right there.

    Looking at that picture, I'm just thinking that water in the background could sure have went to a good cause.

    Indeed. They still have good funding and union level organizing. They also have the sympathy, enthusiasm and resources of most of the main stream media. All that is lacking is their old numbers. That and the fact that they don't have a clue.

    People have been turned off by the criminal activity and calls for violence. Im hoping they continue to fade and they fail at the violence promised for the conventions. Or better yet have second thoughts about violence at the conventions.

    Wait until they lose the election and then you will see democrats endorsing anarchy. The Van Jones criminals are waiting in the wings and it's conceivable to entertain the conspiracy theory that the criminal Obama authorized as attorney general might be supplying the rabble with illegal weapons as we speak.

    Not that they ever mattered, but it is now an epic fail.
