  •  So horribly ironic days after the 50th anniversary (5+ / 0-)

    of the March for Jobs and Freedom.

    Civil liberties and economic justice have nothing to do with one another, of course.

    The party of Kennedy is also the party of Eastland. The party of Javits is also the party of Goldwater. Where is our party? Where is the political party that will make it unnecessary to march on Washington?

      with each other.

      A man with a job have many more freedoms than one without.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.

      •  I know a man who says just the opposite (1+ / 0-)

        He is homeless, an out of work aerospace engineer who worked in the aerospace industry.

        He spoke of how they took his pension, lost his house, and caused him so much grief that he feels liberated as a homeless man without all the oppression from banks he owes money to.

        That aside, this is a big strawman. No one said these other issues aren't important. What do you think OWS was about (and before answering, remember that I was involved with Occupy in my area... I know full well why we were all there).
