To improve your chances of seeing your comment published, avoid confrontational or antagonistic methods of communication. Really that is the problem we are confronting.

We encourage all views. We discourage ad hominem disparagement.

That is a very good and very fair essay about the mayor. "OWS" is about the system and the 1% wants to keep the system and many of the 99% do not know yet what the "system" is that the 1% is protecting. At some point in time the 99% will understand that the "system" the 1% is protecting is the monetary system. It is the system where the government prints money and gives it to banks who end it to the 1% to make more money or lend it to the government at interest paid from taxes on the citizens. That is the "system" that needs to be changed.

Absolutely correect. The monetary system is dead. Replacing it with a credit system is vital. reinstating the Glass-Steagal to stop the reckless gambling spree by the banksters is the first step-passage of HR1489 that has a growing list of supporter must be rammed through before our time runs out. It is likely that Obama is opposed to it to defend his 1% campaign contributors.

Mayor Boomberg has taken a rather healthy crap on his own legacy. He'll only be remembered as the mayor who created his own version of Kristallnacht in Zuccotti Park.
Shame on him!

I guess the next thing for the Mayor is to have a terrorist alarm to try an get some creditability back to his legacy.

be careful what you wish for... the next step will be to brand OWS a terrorist organization, to shut down their funding, to arrest their "leaders" and ship them off to an offshore "detention" center where they can learn that 2+2+=5 (after that, of course, they'll be qualified to work at citibank, BoA, etc)

The more these people, who are in charge talk, the more I know they are some of the luckiest stupid people in the world.
