    just simply concerned citizens??? hahahha..

    “They reminded us that we can get fired, sued, arrested for talking to the press,” the source said.
    “Then they went through the article point-by-point and said that the allegation that we pay people to protest isn’t true.”

    “‘That’s the story that we’re sticking to,’” Westin said, according to the source.

    The source said staffers at the meeting contested Westin’s denial:

    “It was pretty funny. Jonathan told staff they don’t pay for protesters, but the people in the meeting who work there objected and said,
    ‘Wait, you pay us to go to the protests every day?’
    Then Jonathan said ‘No, but that’s your job,’
    and staffers were like, ‘Yeah, our job is to protest,’
    and Westin said,
    ‘No your job is to fight for economic and social justice.
    We just send you to protest.’


    “Staff said, ‘Yes, you pay us to carry signs.’
    Then Jonathan says, ‘That’s your job.’ It went on like that back and forth for a while.”

    If I were the other protesters "I'D PROTEST!" I want to get paid!

    So the money trail goes this way:
    1) YOUR children will be paying off the govt. borrowings
    2) Govt. borrowings that make up the deficit in part caused by "JOBS Bill"??
    3) Jobs bill pays public works and teachers salaries?
    4) Teachers/workers salaries get UNION DUES deductions.
    5) Unions contract with ACORN et.al. to hire workers to protest at OWS!

    That's the money trail...

    SO let's cut out all those middle men and just pay off protesters.. oh wait
    we DO called "unemployment insurance"!

    Sounds more like corporations and the wealthy owning our political system with their donations to campaigns and $1000 a day lobbyists.

    You ever hear of Grover Norquist...John Boehner evidently hasn't::

    I would not be surprised to discover that some people are getting paid at the OWS events.

    Community organizers usually are on somebody's payroll.

    My complaint is that there isn't more ADULT supervision at the OWS events.

    Their unfocused complaints aren't nearly taking advantage of the crowds OWS has attracted.

    ohh.... boogie man Norquist!!!! How fearful we all are quaking in our boots!

    AND tell me again WHY campaigns LIKE NORQUIST against RAISING taxes that will be used as I pointed out to pay Protesters IS BAD?
    Again.. tell me why anyone would want to pay taxes that will be used to:

    $1 million to zoos to post bits of poetry to plaques on zoo premises.
    National Science Foundation $200,000 to study why political candidates make vague statements.
    The (GPO) is using a "video game space mouse" ( $60,000 in taxpayer funds) to teach children the history of printing.
    The National Science Foundation spent $250k to Stanford to study how Americans use the Internet to find love.
    (ATF) spent over $20,000 in taxpayer money "to unravel the anonymity of a 2,500-year-old mummy."
    (NIH) spent nearly $442,340 to study the number of male prostitutes in Vietnam and their social setting.
    (NSF) awarded over $600,000 to the Minnesota Zoo to create a wolf "avatar" video game called "WolfQuest."
    $700,000 federal grant to examine "greenhouse gas emission from organic dairies, caused by cow burps

    AND THESE classics:
    A Study on "The Association Between Penis Size and Sexual Health Among Men Who Have Sex with Men,"
    at least $9.4 million went to a ten-year study that included the penis-size research.
    GOV’T WASTE: $900,000 SPENT ON GAY MEN PENIS SIZE STUDY. « GILL REPORT – The official website of the Steve Gill Show

    $2.6 million training Chinese prostitutes to drink more responsibly on the job

    REALLY NORQUIST asking Congress NOT to raise taxes that would be used to do Penis studies???? THAT"S REALLY BAD????

    Millions TRAINING CHINESE prostitutes???
    Really don't you see how totally inane that is?
    Your CHILDREN will be paying China for borrowed money that went back to CHINA to train THEIR prostitutes! REALLY???

    Norquist a boogie man to suggest tax dollars shouldn't be used to do idiocies like these?
    The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), has so far awarded $1.44 million in federal funds to a project that, among other things, is estimating the size of the population and examining the “social milieu” of male prostitutes in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

    WHAT does this have to do with Americans... really!

    The city of Las Vegas has received a $5.2 million federal grant to build the Neon Boneyard Park and Museum, including $1.8 million in 2010.

    So here we have Obama whining about "corporate jets going to Las Vegas"...
    AND Then giving millions to build a Neon museum!
    Why of course why not?? Direct quotes from Las Vegas people BLAMING Obama for downturn in visitors and so Obama sends millions to build museum to empty casinos!
    BRILLIANT!!!

    That's an ignorant question. When we were paying for the second world war anyone who earned more than $300,000 a year paid 91% of the excess to the government. We used to pay for whatever America owed. A progressive tax system with marginal tax rates has always been the way. Right now the party of corporations and the wealthy are demanding more tax cuts while tax rates are the lowest they've been in fifty years.

    How is it that in the 1940's and 1950's a corporate executive earned 10-15 times what a carpenter earned? How is it that by the 1970's that multiplier increased to 50 times what an ordinary working American earned? How is it that last year the average CEO was paid 550 times what a member of what used to be the middle class earned?

    The supporters of the Republican party who aren't rich have their collective heads up their collective asses so far that they can't see anything but shit and I won't even get into what they breathe.

    The Republican party has changed from one which supported balanced annual budgets, small government and individual rights to one which is bought and paid for by corporations and the wealthy. Anybody who fails to see that is one of those I just referred to.

    Ronald Reagan and Bush41 borrowed $3 trillion from foreign banks, removed deductions of all types except interest on home mortgages for ordinary Americans, consequently increasing the taxes they paid, then the borrowed money ended up in the pockets of the very wealthiest Americans. George W. Bush assumed a balanced annual budget with surpluses projected all the way to the outyears and the entire debt on schedule to be completely paid off by 2012 and immediately began to cut taxes by the trillions with half of the cuts going to the wealthiest Americans. In other words financing tax cuts with borrowed money. He doubled the national debt from $5.7 to nearly $12 trillion.

    Americans who are into this stuff part and parcel are anything but patriots. Sometimes I don't think we have any patriots left in this country. At least among those with the wealth and power.

    IDIOT...
    YOU and NO one has answered my previous threads ASKING you and evidently other idiots one QUESTION!
    DO YOU REMEMBER these EVENTS???
    $8 trillion in losses occurred because of:
    1) The Stock Market Crash of 2000-2002 caused the loss of $5 trillion
    in the market value of companies from March 2000 to October 2002. Dot-com bubble - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    2) 9/11 REMEMBER THAT???
    Counting the value of lives lost as well as property damage and lost
    production of goods and services, losses already exceed $100 billion.
    Including the loss in stock market wealth ,the market's own estimate
    arising from expectations of lower corporate profits and higher
    discount rates for economic volatility --
    the price tag approaches $2 trillion.
    The Cost of September 11

    3) FACT: Worst hurricane SEASONS in history wiped out $1 Trillion
    Did you know the WORST HURRICANE SEASONS..PLURAL..SEASONS IN HISTORY occurred And 4 of the TOP MOST EXPENSIVE ($240 Billion ) hurricanes???
    #1 Hurricane Katrina August 2005 Louisiana, the most destructive
    hurricane in US History caused $200 billion in damage.
    #3 Hurricane Charley August 13 - 14, 2004 Florida causing $15 billion
    #4 Hurricane Ivan September 16 - 24, 2004 $14.2 billion in damage
    #8 Hurricane Frances September 5, 2004 Florida caused $8.9 billion
    http://www.epicdisasters.com/index.php/site/comments/the_ten_costliest_us_hurricanes/

    Total of over $8 trillion in losses ALL written against taxes because of Dot.com/9/11 and worst hurricane SEASONS!

    FACT BY NOT having the $8 trillion in losses.. $267 billion per year from 2003-2008 would NOT be deducted!

    FACT:
    A total of $2,500 Trillion in REVENUE that would have been collected
    if there had been no Dot.com bust, no 9/11 and worst hurricanes seasons
    in history.

    OH AND another QUESTION OF YOUR MEMORY and thinking!!

    I am SURE you won't understand this question but this is for others...
    If you heard every day for 5 years that you were for shit.
    That you were totally wrong.
    And that what YOU were doing was criminal.
    That what you were doing was KILLING people innocent people!
    AND THAT YOUR own people were terrorists, killers, barbarians!
    How do you think the US troops would feel and HOW encouraged would their enemies be hearing these LEADERS of the USA!

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid(D) "War is lost",
    U.S. Rep. Murtha(D) "Our troops killed innocent civilians in cold blood,”
    Senator Kerry(D) "American soldiers going into the homes of Iraqis in the
    dead of night, terrorizing kids and children."
    Senator Obama(D) .."troops are air-raiding villages and killing civilians,"

    I am sure you agree with these traitors! You excuse your culpability in encouraging terrorists that CAUSED THEY caused 3,000 more US troops death and $600 billion MORE then was necessary.. ALL because the above and you put political power AHEAD of US Troops lives !

    I'd be really ASHAMED!!!!
