A few people get out of hand and some streets get blocked. This is somehow more devastating than the thousands upon thousands that are dying slow tortured deaths because they can't afford health insurance due to pure greed? How about the ridiculous student loan rates that are raping our children of their finances before they can even begin their careers? Or maybe we should look more into the vast amounts of greed and illegal activity by the banks we trust with the money we covet so. Is blocking a street and carrying a sign so detrimental that we need to beat and bloody the youth of our nation? Or would you rather kill them like in the protests of the past? If this is patriotism than I'd much rather be an anarchist...

Ooh, thousands have no insurance. Sir, I pay for my health insurance each month. It is not an entitlement, or a right, but a choice and a responsibility. I define responsibility as the ability to respond. What is your definition? Take to the streets and gripe that life is not fair? Get a life!

France is looking for new taxpayers. You might consider a move.

Who forced anyone to sign these loans, you moron?

and not a word about rape of children and grandchildren by a debt load put upon everyone in the this country by a government out of control to pay for the ridiculous demands of the freeloaders. At least with a college loan you get the choice to sign or not.

Not even close to being a 1% but joining the cause.

morons like you pollute intelligent discourse, but i can't really blame you since public education has gotten so bad. your elders have failed in not teaching you that life isn't fair, education isn't free and neither is health insurance. history is important to understand, living on credit cards is bad, and free speech is patriotic as long as you don't yell "i'm immature and unhappy" in a crowded city with no money to clean up your anarchist mess. grow up, youngster, you'll need to be responsible some day. "raping our children of their finances"? "beat and bloody the youth of our nation"? "vast amounts of greed and illegal activity by the banks we trust with the money we covet so"? welcome to the real world, kid. deal with it.

America's government K-12 school monopoly is clearly failing. School choice for every family is our best hope to restore freedom and excellence.

The "Occupy" movement, which the Obama administration and much of the media have embraced, has implications that reach far beyond the passing sensation it has created.

The unwillingness of authorities to put a stop to their organized disruptions of other people's lives, their trespassing, vandalism and violence is a de facto suspension, if not repeal, of the 14th Amendment's requirement that the government provide "equal protection of the laws" to all its citizens.

How did the "Occupy" movement acquire such immunity from the laws that the rest of us are expected to obey? Simply by shouting politically correct...
