Mentat: So the banks are openly bribing the police now? Lovely.


That is how the free market works. If you do not like banks bribing police departments, then start your own police department and make a bigger bribe. I am sick of liberals complaining that bribes are somehow unethical. I did not know gift-giving was unethical. No wonder liberals have started a war on Christmas. Lol.

Jim_Callahan: Um, why? The Unions are still around and they were involved in most of the same shiat. Pinkerton is the same, I'd imagine, same general theme but reigned in by the real law.


Both sides are the bad so vote strikebreaking goons!

Tellingthem: Ahhh I wish i could be more upset about this...and then i read that the protestors want to shut down the Golden Gate Bridge...

"This plan has been developed with safety as a priority, keeping in mind that participants should be able to choose their own risk levels. From 7-10am there will be a rally at the bridge toll plaza, organized by the affected unions. There will also be non-violent civil disobedience at an undisclosed location. This location WILL result in the shutdown of the Golden Gate Bridge. If you would like to be involved in the civil disobedience please email occupythebridge[[nospam-﹫-backwards] image 7x13]liamg[* image 7x13]com for more info.

And then I suddenly start losing interest and decided to just play some Weezer instead...

\I really like the Pinkerton album


Yeah, god forbid a protest against corporate oligarchy and complacency among the citizenry should step on anybody's toes. They really shouldn't even be having a protest, you know? I mean, they'll crowd up the sidewalks and inconvenience people trying to walk by! Fighting the system is one thing, but disrupting one very small part of the system for a few hours -well, that's just going too far.

offmymeds: Banks cooperating on surveillance are like elk fending off wolves in Yellowstone National Park, he said. While other animals try in vain to sprint away alone, elk survive attacks by forming a ring together, he said.

I've seen elk and they're beautiful, graceful creatures. You, sir, are no elk.


Those poor, put-upon multibillion-dollar international banks. Everyone's out to get them. Why won't anyone protect them?

sick_of_it: All we need now is to bring back Baldwin-Felts and the Trusts and the change over is complete.


I want Boss Tweed and Tammany Hall back. If we MUST have corrupt government, let's at least have a little style.

Tellingthem:
No, There are many ways of protesting that get your voice out without simply shutting down a bridge. You can protest in front of buildings and parks, hold rallies and fundraisers, you can do many things that do not involve shutting down a bridge. that will get your message heard without shutting down a bridge.


But if they don't shut down a bridge, what will Tampa Rays fans use as their go-to attendance excuse?

I hope the police are even more brutal and this time, and maybe kill a few people so the hippies will learn that you can't change the system with marches and drum circles, it can only be changed with violent revolution.

Worst analogy evar. When I think of banks I would never think of anything as majestic as an elk. Although wolves do come to mind.

No, if you want an analogy I'd think vampires and angry townsfolk waving pitchforks would be more like it.

Why do you question the Corporate Media citizen? They're doing this for your own good.
