OWS should get a "veteran" like Marine Corp (sic) Pat to ensure that the "lazy loser entitled" are properly represented.

In reference to Iowa, I don't believe that the Occupy Wall Street movement had much to do with the marginal choice of Romney. Iowa is not concerned too much with jobs as they have among the lowest unemployment rates. I believe it is 5% although this may not be the correct figure.

If this is the case, the voters were more interested in the positions of the candidates on social issues such as gay marriage. About 48% of the caucas population is comprised of evangelicals who consider such matters to be of utmost importance. If you ask some Pennsylvanians, Santorum sunk his own ship with a book that came out before the 2010 election. He expressed the view that mothers belong in the home and many working women do so for egotistical reasons. Santorum wants to bring us all back to the 1950's when most wives did not work out of the home and there were many fewer female heads of household.

In effect, I don't think that the outcome of the Iowa caucases reflected anything much beyond a predictable choice of Romney and Santorum, who are idealogically much on the same page of the poplation of Iowa. Yet this is indicative of he ambivalence of voters, given that only about 8 votes separated the front runner. As the primaries go on, in states with more diverse points of view will give a better idea of the true strength of Santorum's and Romney's candidacies.

'Occupy Wall Street’ Participation To Earn Class Credit At Columbia U.
Announcement Comes As Dozens Are Arrested On New Year's Eve
http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2012/01/01/new-cl...

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP)— Columbia University will offer a new course for upperclassmen and grad students next semester. An Occupy Wall Street class will send students into the field and will be taught by Dr. Hannah Appel, a veteran of the Occupy movement.

The course begins next semester and will be divided between class work at Columbia’s Morningside Heights campus and fieldwork that will require students to become involved with the Occupy movement outside of the classroom.

What is your feelings about the 49% of the people that don't pay any taxes? Shouldn't they also pay their fair share?

Every single person in the USA pays taxes,

not one person can avoid it!

But the GOP thinks rich people are not rich enough?

does that make you warm and fuzzy inside?

wake up a hole,

they work for the richest, not YOU!

they burn the country to the ground,

as long as they have more green in their accounts!

O.K.,let me reword that,how about the people that don't pay any income/federal tax? You are right saying that everyone,even the "rich" pay taxes if you are talking about sale/use taxes.Not everyone(49%) pays income tax but get the same services,sometimes more than the people that pay the federal taxes.Is that fair?

There you go,typical leftist loon,dodge the question and start with the slurs and insults to change the subject.Just so you know,the interest only home loans were the work of the democrats because they felt that everyone is "owed" a house even if they couldn't afford it.You do know about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,don't you? You do know that it was B.Franks and C.Dodd that covered up what was really going on with Fannie and Freddy by saying they were in great shape while both Franks and Dodd were getting "special rates" from them,you know that,right? BTY: I watch almost all of the differance media outlets expect MSNBC,can't take the lies,spin and the left leaning rants that they do 24/7.
