Occupy Wall Street Protest Escalates On Eighth Day (VIDEO)

“These actions are Completely within the scope of, and constitutionality which the rights of free people can exercise.”

“Actually, the right to peaceful process and lawful assembly does not include blocking streets and doing whatever you wish whenever you wish. The protestors were generally left alone until they tried entering the stock exchange, businesses or in this case, blocked much of 5th Avenue and other streets going up to Union Square.”

New Orleans: The Joy and the Dread

Commented May 4, 2010 at 00:22:17 in Green

“Some wonder, some assume, why and how New Orleans is the epicenter for so much catastrophe. I wish I knew.”

Michael Tuller on May 4, 2010 at 14:13:23

“As one born and raised in New Orleans, who has lived on the West Coast most of my life, let me suggest that the whole Gulf South area is subject to the worst man made catastrophes mostly because of the pervasive culture of corruption that has been allowed to thrive there for so many decades. It persists due to the generational ignorance, poverty and hatred resulting from denial of education; economic oppression; long-standing, divisive class and race warfare and the cavalier attitude so many residents there have toward that corruption and classism and racism. Who's your daddy?

And, if that wasn't bad enough, the rise of bigoted religious fundamentalism has further divided everyone and exacerbated every social ill.

From Huey Long to Edwin Edwards to Clay Shaw, Leander Perez and, yes, even Ray Nagin and Mary Landrieu, just to focus on Louisiana alone, blatantly corrupt and even criminal officials have been held as heroes by those who have benefitted or hoped to benefit or just believe they've benefitted from their tenure. Witness the continuation of the Landrieu Dynasty. Can there really be no one else to vote for?

For the most part, the voters there long ago surrendered their good sense and humanity to their worst fears and motivations. They've made themselves sitting ducks.”

SaraNader on May 4, 2010 at 10:48:29

“I thought Pat Robertson and all the other HypoChristians made it pretty clear during the Katrina crises - New Orleans is being punished for the gay attitude that pervades the French Quarter.

Which is strange, because the French Quarter didn't flood during Katrina.

And even stranger, I've been to NOLA 15, 20 times and haven't "turned gay" yet. Maybe I'm just not trying hard enough ...”

SinisterK9 on May 4, 2010 at 08:15:44

“New Orleans is not the epicenter for such, however the media certainly portrays it that way. The Gulf Coast has been a disaster zone since Katrina, but somehow or another, on a large scale, people only think of New Orleans. Even now as the oil pushes ever closer to the entire gulf, we hear so much about New Orleans as if it is the only tragedy.”

RepugsOut08 on May 4, 2010 at 07:08:36

“New Orleans is only one "epicenter for so much catastrophe." in the world.
The powers that be only see a strategic port surrounded by oil and gas reserves. The beautiful city with it's centuries old culture and unique population, appears to be expendable to these exploiters.
Same as it ever was, and same as it ever continues to be in so many other parts of the world today. Don't let the exploiters get away with it! Don't make excuses for them, and, above all, don't blame the people who are victims of these man-made catastrophes.
Hurricane Katrina didn't flood New Orleans. Poorly constructed flood walls that were known to be deficient, caused that flooding.
Nature didn't cause this oil spill, nor did some nefarious secret saboteur.
Safety took a backseat to profits, and now it won't be just LA that suffers this time. Still unknown swaths of the US coastline will pay the price.
Ask not for whom the ecological disaster warning siren wails, it wails for thee.”

Lessons From Failed Times Square Bombing

Commented May 4, 2010 at 00:05:18 in New York

“So I think this time square bombing was a hoax. Orwellian dystopia theory, keep us in a constant state of shock, or heighten state of security. like his book 1984, parading a covered truck around new York on a flat bed truck, it's a tactic to keep us under control. The powers that be are only starting to do this, in years to come it will be worse and we'll put up with more of our rights being taken away in the name of freedom. So far as this article points out, we still have the audacity to live free, even after an attempt to keep us in line. but the more we don't obey the higher the stakes will be raised.”

“Hate or be mindful and suspicious of your neighbor but love the government which is your savior and protector from your own fellow man.....”

“Your proposition is insane. There appears to be no doubt that it is real. However, the more relevant point is how little all of the money & training have benefited us. They have spied on us & shredded our Constitutional freedoms & liberties & they pretty much are unable to stop the most amateurish attempts. The entire concept of The Homeland Security Department which does much more to revoke our liberty that it actually accomplishes in counter-terrorism should be the focus of attention.

We need to stop living in fear & embrace our freedom.”

“I hate Larry the cable guy!”

-swift on Jan 14, 2010 at 09:23:50

“I can't get a link, because no Youtube at work. But there was a video of "Larry the cable guy" doing standup on some cruise ship somewhere. No flannel. No Southern accent.

I'm not opposed to comedians creating and playing characters. But usually it's satirical when it happens. I think supporting the anti-gay redneck Southerner thing is bad. It's the same as the Sean Hannity types who spout horrible stuff to get ratings, which gets them money.”
