    There is a political whirligig on the conservative side pushing for a definition of "personhood" to include embryos immediately after conception. I wonder if corporate personhood can get redefined too?

    Hey! Did anyone see Occupy NC begging for shit while they were outside the DNC. Wow; that was fantastic. A little microcosm about what Obama/Biden suck. Even better when they're gettin protested by a bunch of fucktards with iPhones. Awesome.

  3. I agree that Obama sucks, but you seem to think Ryan/Romney suck less. Let's see what Ryan has done as a Congressman: Proposed a budget that would cost those on Medicare and Medicaid, who can't afford additional expenses, an extra $6400 a year in health care by providing coupons instead of care. I base this on is plan from 2011. He also cosponsored a bill with Todd Akin that would deny the right to abortion for victims of rape and incest, even going so far as to cosponsor a "Personhood Amendment". To tell you how fucking crazy that is, it was defeated in Mississippi, with 55% of Mississippians voting against. Mississippi, for fuck's sake! This isn't the state that produced George Wallace, but if anything, they're MORE conservative than Alabama! Let's ignore Ryan for a moment, since he's pretty much guaranteed his reelection to Congress. As Governor, Mitt Romney tried to raise fees 24 times. After all, blind people should have to pay more to prove they're blind, and mentally handicapped people should have to pay to prove they're mentally handicapped. He did succeed, though, in raising fees for gun licenses. Also, he proposed charging people $50 for TB tests, with a $400 fee if the person tested positive. Vote Ryan/Romney. Their motto: Let the poor die so our rich buddies can get a break in life.

  5. What the fuck?! They did a better job of fact-checking than that shitstain, . Fucking Fox News, fisking Republicunts?! The GOP has gone far past their Cronkite condemning Vietnam moment. Their only hope is to DIAF and create a new party, much like the Whig and Federalist Parties before them. The Whigs and Federalist Parties died because the crazies took over, just as they have again.

    Year One: Occupy Wall Street Plans Anniversary Protest of Wall Street | The Nation

    By Allison Kilkenny

    Occupy Wall Street, one of the largest grassroots mass movements in US history, celebrates its first anniversary next week on September 17, and the group has planned not only a day of protest and direct action but also weekend workshops in which protesters will bring awareness to ongoing projects, and lay out Occupy’s vision for what will happen September 18 and beyond. The week leading up to Occupy’s anniversary will include training in direct action, reflection on the past year of popular resistance, and ultimately the September 17 action on Wall Street.

    Washington Square Park on September 15 will be a site of convergence, for gathering and information-sharing under the banner of “Education for Liberation,” according to Nina Mehta, an Occupy organizer who has been working the convergence spaces around S17.

    “We’ve mostly been building a framework with some structure and scheduling, and open space for participation around education, solutions, movement and coalition-building,” says Mehta.

  12. First, I don't watch MSNBC. However, it is clear that you watch Fox "News". It's called "documented facts". Everything I said is backed up in the public record. I don't have to demonize Ryan/Romney. Their record does it for me.

    Twitter to surrender Occupy protester's tweets: lawyer

    (Reuters) - Twitter is expected to hand over tweets from an Occupy Wall Street protester to a New York criminal judge on Friday after months of unsuccessfully fighting a subpoena from prosecutors, the protester's lawyer said on Thursday.

    Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Matthew Sciarrino ordered Twitter earlier this week to comply with the subpoena by Friday or face contempt and a substantial fine.

    The protester, Malcolm Harris, was one of hundreds arrested during a mass protest on the Brooklyn Bridge in October. The Manhattan district attorney's office is seeking the tweets, which are no longer available online, to try to undermine Harris' argument that police officers appeared to lead protesters on to the bridge's roadway only to arrest them for obstructing traffic.

    In the months since prosecutors subpoenaed Twitter for the records, Harris and Twitter have both waged a legal battle to quash the request, citing privacy concerns and other issues.

    Sciarrino rejected those arguments and ordered Twitter in June to produce the tweets. Earlier this week, he told the company it had until Friday to comply or face contempt.

    Harris' lawyer, Martin Stolar, filed for an emergency stay on Thursday in a separate court, but had not yet heard from the judge.

    "It is my understanding that Twitter will comply, barring a stay," he said.

    Lawyers for Twitter did not immediately return requests for comment late on Thursday, and the company did not respond to requests for comment.

    Twitter has filed an appeal of Sciarrino's June order, but it is possible the appellate court could find it moot if the company hands over the tweets on Friday, Stolar said. In addition to Twitter's appeal, Stolar has filed a civil action claiming Sciarrino overstepped his authority in ordering the tweets produced.

    "I'm certainly going to continue fighting," he said.

    You occupy guys should have been emergency doctors, because even though someone had died, been buried and started to decompose, you guys would still be working on them, convinced there is still some life left in them.

  18. Why are you so threatened by people speaking up? You want everyone to just "be nice?" The GOP doesn't do that why should Occupy? Why are you on this thread if you disagree with it so much? Why don't you just go start a new thread about how much you hate it and stay there? I'm sure you'll have A LOT of interest from the 3 people on here with 6 different accounts that like spreading their patriotic, good old days bullshit all over this site. I'll be here trying to actually learn more while simultaneously doing something you're clearly incapable of doing...listening.

    Dear Bankers: Thanks for Wrecking Our Lives -

    Tomorrow is the first anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement’s encampment at Zuccotti Park. Some of the protesters there created a Web site for Americans who couldn’t join them in Lower Manhattan. Called Occupy the Boardroom, the site invited people across the country to write detailed letters to the executives and directors of banks. The site’s developers promised to deliver them as e-mail and in person.

    The more than 8,000 letters that resulted (to Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citibank, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley) supply some insight into the way different Americans experienced the financial crisis and recession since 2007.

    The literary magazine n+1 collected 200 of the letters in a book, “The Trouble Is the Banks: Letters to Wall Street,” which appears this month. Mike McQuade, an artist, used excerpts from these letters to create this illustration for The New York Times.

    You are only capable of "listening" to your buddies spouting occupy crap! Or reading "Mr Copypasta" The wrong guys posts. The rest of the general public and guys like me see occupy for what it WAS, an expensive disaster, but you keep plugging away at it. Desperate to try and bring it back to life,

    IIRC there was going to be a second phase earlier this year, coming back stronger and better. WTF happened to that idea??? Died a natural death possibly? Lack of support maybe?

    I don't hate the occupy idea, not the thought behind it anyway, but I think that when you have a movement that "claims" to represent a certain 99% of the population and that 99% basically give you the equivalent of a meh! Then you need to go away and have a serious rethink. And after costing that 99% millions and not actually achieving fuck all you should really get the hint sunshine!

    And who are you to claim that others are using different accounts to post!!! People in glass houses.........

    Matthew Vadum

    Matthew Vadum is an award-winning investigative reporter and the author of the recently published book, "Subversion Inc.: How Obama’s ACORN Red Shirts Are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers."

    Here's a review of his "book" I found on amazon:
    royal crap, November 10, 2011

    This review is from: Subversion, Inc.: How Obama's ACORN Red Shirts are Still Terrorizing and Ripping Off American Taxpayers (Hardcover)
    This so called investigative reporter--wouldn't know an investigation from a Stalinist propaganda report. No matter that's he a Doberman poodle from the rabid right. he's a one-eyed ijit. He starts with his conclusions and works back toward his "facts." So if you like fairy tales, by all means, waste your money on this grant-funded nonsense. If you want truth, trying reading something that doesn't insult your intelligence--like a Department of Justice report issued under Republican President Bush that put the lie to this so-called voter fraud and other nonsense.

    Journalists Arrested During Occupy Wall Street Anniversary Protests

    Journalists were among the scores arrested in New York City as the Occupy Wall Street movement marked its one-year anniversary.

    The movement has been holding protests for the past few days to commemorate the date, and police have been very active in responding. More than 100 people were arrested on Monday alone.

    As they have been since the protests began, journalists found themselves swept up, though on a smaller scale than at the movement's 2011 height.

    Josh Stearns, campaign director for media reform group Free Press, compiled news about the arrests on Storify. Photojournalists appeared to be the most frequently targeted. Two photographers and one journalist were arrested on Saturday night, and several more during Monday's protests. At least one journalist from the local WPIX station was arrested on Monday. In one instance, police arrested a photographer, Julia Reinhart, while she was wearing identification that listed her as a member of the National Press Photographers Association. Another journalist and illustrator, Molly Crabapple, tweeted about her arrest on Monday. "Can't wait to draw this," she wrote.

    John Bolger, a student journalist at Hunter College, was also arrested.

    The NPPA issued a statement saying that it was "deeply concerned and troubled by the aggressive and indiscriminate manner in which officers and command staff are allegedly treating those exercising their First Amendment rights."
