@markthepatriot Really? It must be the people he was with who weren't very experienced. Protesting is tougher than it looks..maybe because politics is the one thing that will destroy the planet.

@markthepatriot That's what you got from his comment....WOW
I am a cuban jew. Most eastern european american jews have one foot in the bank with their money. They have their other foot in their love for communism and socialism. That is why they are reg. democrats(99%)of them.
There is a lot of misunderstanding on all sides, probably because we can't get the truth out of Washington or the media. people are trying to do what they think is right but we are flying in the dark.
@dmcindc or kept doing what he did and give the money to those whom need it AND work...
@markthepatriot uhmmm...no he did not. You are making that up. Stick to the facts. Sooooo typical of your party.
@Gmusictar By cutting spending, taxes, and regulation we will finally stop chasing capital out of this country, jobs will start coming back to our country, wages and living standards will go up, Americans will have an incentive to stop getting into debt to the wealthy with a higher interest rate and will be paid to save, we will be more competitive, and investment in our economy will increase. This helps ALL Americans. For more information l recommend reading classical and Austrian Economics.
So he spends $200 on five signs from Kinkos? Maybe he should have made the signs by hand and given that money to the poor people who need it! Spread the wealth and stop being so greedy with your money man!
This movement is not benefiting the wealthy. This movement is Constitutionalist in nature and wants to see less taxes and regulations on our businesses which would lead to a higher standard of living for everyone. Also, the actions of a few disrespectful members of the group in no way invalidates the actions of the group as a whole. This is typical leftist/collectivist mentality. They can not debate the actual facts, nor can they deny that Obama is doing the same as Bush. You are traitors.

So much for a peaceful movement of concerned citizens. Bunch of hypocrites.
