    The radical left wing of the demopublican party is ready to completely nationalize all aspects of the US economy.

    First FuelRod. Great Avatar. I just love how half of them have no jobs and pay no taxes. Of course they don't care if taxes get raised to astronomical levels!! They don't know what it's like. I already have a thread about my views on taxing the rich and corporations just to increase revenue. Ignorant Liberals.

    They are the geneticallymodifiedbycannabis grandchildren of the 1960s hippies. Maybe one day they will get a real job.

    You have kooks and concerned citizens. The misdirection of protest is what needs to be mocked.

    This so closely resembles the WTO protests. We know how effective those have been.

    keep making fun of this movement.

    Its the same thing you did when people were warning of an economic collapse in the mid 2000s.


    The right gets it wrong every damned time and then has to shuffle, forget, lie and insult to help them forget how they fucked up in the past.

    It appears that the only thing they are occupying is some media attention. Most of the vast array of their stated concerns are legitimate. Dissatisfaction alone does not change policy. What they need to do is take some of this momentum and elect representatives that can work on implementing their wishes. They should follow the Tea Baggers lead in this respect.
