    What he should have mentioned on the next to last question is that corporations are GROUPS of persons. Those persons can vote to represent their interests any way they like, including the interest of the corporations they work for/own. Corporations will always have representation in the form of the US citizens who care about them. And that’s ALL the representation they should have.

    Glad to see a senator actually admit wall street committed illegal activities. Are these people who committed those illegal activities being brought up on CRIMINAL charges yet? He sure didn’t say “alleged” anywhere before illegal and being a senator i am sure if he was not sure their was “illegal” he would have been careful to say “alleged”.

    It’s no surprise that Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks doesn’t like Glenn Beck’s politics. However, Uygur also thinks that Beck doesn’t get online video. Uygur recently signed up with YouTube for its new content initiative instead of relying on a pay wall like Beck.

    Cannabis doesn’t “distract” you…. So I suppose if someone takes couch medicine before they come they are also unwelcome? What about nicotine? Caffeine? All of these change behavior, why did you specifically point out “pot”?

  6. Bir şeyler öğrendim: Polisin boşaltma kararı belli olunca Occupy hareketinin avukatları gece Yargıç Lucy Billings’i uyandırıp geçici yürütmeyi durdurma kararı Lucy Billings, eski ACLU (American Civil Union) üyesi, aktivist bir kadınmış. Sonra bu konudaki karar yetkisi ondan alınıp Stallman’a veriliyor. Protestocular önce bu işe sevinmişler, çünkü Stallman 2006’da şehrin (yani valinin) Critical Mass toplaşmasını engelleyemeyeceği kararını veren yargıçmış vs. Ama bugün verdiği son karar, yukarıda da dediğim gibi, “dönebilirsiniz ama çadırlar olmadan” oldu.

    You say we need to get the facts straight when you’re the one who has no clue what they are talking about. They have jobs, they pay bills, they go to college. There are alot of negative people out their making this movement look bad, and I do not agree with those people. I do not believe in vandalizing banks and selling drugs and being violent. BUT, there are alot of us out there who simply want big banks to stop taking advantage of people like YOU and ME.

    It was one of those days that confirmed the validity of the chant: “All Day, All Week, Occupy Wall Street”. Ok, maybe, it wasn’t a whole week but Saturday felt like a week in one day.

    Google: Laura Granados Immigration Prostitute

    The VAWA Immigration Loop-hole:

    If you are an immigrant woman, pretend to be in love with a US citizen or a Legal Resident, get him to marry you. Then dial 211 and falsely accuse him of Domestic Violence and Rape and move to a VAWA shelter.

    You will be on a fast-track for a Green-Card and US citizenship – all expenses paid for by the US tax payer and as a bonus you will be getting full social benefits.

  18. Jesse LaGreca: Occupy Wall Street Movement Is Driven By Anger Complete video at: fora.tv Prominent Occupy Wall Street activist Jesse LaGreca argues that in a stale economy, working-class Americans are being forced to make big sacrifices while major Wall Street players have still not been held accountable for the economic downturn they helped trigger. This injustice, says LaGreca, is the driving force behind the OWS movement. —– Culture Project and JANERA.com present Blueprint for Accountability: Truth and Consequences. Ron Suskind, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and best-selling author, Paul O’Neill, the famously candid Treasury Secretary under George W. Bush and a 2008 adviser to Barack Obama, and Jesse LaGreca (blogger and writer for Daily Kos and Occupy Wall Street activist) meet for a high-voltage conversation about the rise, fall and bailout of Wall Street, the perils of speaking truth to power, and the tough choices ahead for America.

  46. Al Sharpton will almost be the host for MSNBC’s recently opened-up 6 p.m. time slot, The New York Times, which describes the hiring as “imminent.” He’s actually been “guest-hosting” in that slot for the last three weeks, if you are among the apparent millions who tune in; previously, the spot was occupied by Cenk Uygur, who left claiming he’d been told by MSNBC president Phil Griffin that “people in Washington… did not like [his] tone.” (Griffin says he told Uygur to adjust his body language.) Our choice for the 6 p.m. slot would have been a constant replay of Mark Halperin saying the word “dick,” but we’re not in charge. [NYT] More »
