    I am still trying to figure out why we are not supposed to allow foreign (cheap) products in, but we are supposed to allow foreign workers in??????

    Also if those foreign workers are entitled to a "living wage" regardless of employment, exactly what incentive is there to get a job when they get here? Right on that they would not be able to fill all the jobs, no one would want to work if a 20 dollar per hour income was to be had employed or not. Do I get Over time on that if I stay up late watching the playoffs, or do I have to rot my brain playing video games to earn overtime?

    Is there a problem with peaceful demonstrations? Your guy Cain called them Unamerican.
    Nothing wrong with peaceful demonstrations but I'm guessing we are just a few days or weeks away from violent demonstrations. The left will state they were driven to violence.

    Here is the first paragraph of that article.

    Admin note: This is not an official list of demands. This is a forum post submitted by a single user and hyped by irresponsible news/commentary agencies like Fox News and Mises.org. This content was not published by the OccupyWallSt.org collective, nor was it ever proposed or agreed to on a consensus basis with the NYC General Assembly. There is NO official list of demands.
    Italics mine.
    if the tactic is used by the left when refering to the tea party, I expect it is apt for the wall street radical.

    BTW, it appears the behaviour of the tea party rally goers is significantly better than the left wing wall street attendees

    Funny thing is... the "anti-corporate" cop car pooper is wearing Nike shoes. Nike is a real bastion for anti corporatism, huh?

    Here is some more;

    Occupy Wall Street: Egyptian Activist Goes 'From Liberation Square To Washington Square'
    First Posted: 10/8/11 07:29 PM ET Updated: 10/8/11 08:27 PM ET
    Thousands of Occupy Wall Street supporters gathered in Washington Square Park on Saturday afternoon for a General Assembly intended to spread the movement's message. After several introductory speakers, the crowd lit up when an Egyptian activist named Mohammed Ezzeldin explained what he saw was the connection between Occupy Wall Street and the protests against Hosni Mubarak.

    "I am coming from there -- from the Arab Spring. From the Arab Spring to the fall of Wall Street," Ezzeldin said, his voice echoed by the crowd of thousands. "From Liberation Square to Washington Square, to the fall of Wall Street and market domination, and capitalist domination."

    His passionate speech, which even included a reference to Karl Marx, made a startling comparison between what happened in Egypt earlier this year and what is now happening in the United States.

    "Many things separate us," he said. "National borders. Homeland insecurities. Armies, corporations and police. They have their laws. They have their debts. And we have our revolution. We are the 99 percent."

    Ezzeldin, a 28-year-old self-described "leftist activist" who is currently living in Jackson Heights and studying at the City University of New York's Graduate Center, told HuffPost he was camped out in Tahrir Square just a few months ago and is now spending days in Zuccotti Park.

    "There are some differences," he said, but he believes "any success for the struggle in the United States is helpful for the rest of the world."

    Ezzeldin argued that making the protests more confrontational and bringing in labor unions will be critical for the success of the movement in the United States.

    "There is an illusion about freedom -- about freedom of speech and freedom of organization in this country," he observed, pointing to New York's laws against tents and megaphones. "What I thought the image exported to the rest of the world... Well, it's not completely false but there are many obstacles."

    As for the NYPD's response to demonstrations so far, Ezzeldin was philosophical. "Police is the police, in Egypt, in the United States. Police is the police. There is no good cops and bad cops, they are all cops," he said.

    I also got a call from my union Culinary # 226 (division of SEIU) and they wanted me to join in the protest in front of the NY NY Hotel...they werent offering pay , but they went into the whole solidarity diatribe, the us vs them spiel...the local media coverage was way overblown because I drove by to see how many were out there and it was FAR BELOW those being reported by our local news programs..but you are right its all about having bodies out there..the local union seems to always have busses at their disposal to take willing participants to the next rally
