Let me get this out of the way....Your blog sucks.

"Loudoun County, Va., has a median household income of $119,540, making it the nation's richest county" Ok let me get this right the median household income is less than $250,000 a year and a household making $119k a year is FAR FAR FAR from being a 1% so that means vote republican?

What kind of crack is this guy smoking? Just because median income is high does not mean everyone there is a 1% 120k a year is a decent wage for a family to make but it does not make them super weathy.

"Occupy is the enemy and since we still don't have a legitimate criticism of the movement we will create as many strawmen as possible to discredit them."

Uh. Top 1% of earners are making about 500 grand/yr, genius blogger guy.

These 1 percenters are not wealthy right-wing Republicans; they are Obama's liberals. How can one tell? It turns out that seven of the 10 wealthiest counties in the Washington area voted overwhelmingly for Obama in 2008. These liberals portray themselves as 99 percenters when they are really 1 percenters. They're simply running a deceitful rope-a-dope, aided by the mainstream media, on the American people.

During last year's Occupy movement, truly seedy-looking characters camped out on the streets and in the parks of several of our cities, causing millions of dollars of property damage. They committed robberies, thefts and sex crimes. Some of their lowlife acts, such as defecating and urinating in public and on police vehicles, were filmed. These people also portrayed themselves as 99 percenters. It turns out that they weren't that at all.


so he's saying that super wealthy obama supporters created the occupy movement as an excuse to take sh*ts in the streets? how could i ever have been so foolish as to fall for such an obvious ploy?!

i also love how he compares the median home value and rental value of people arrested at occupy NYC to those of the rest of the country and is SHOCKED to find out that they are higher.

Right-wing strawman: "OWS hate all rich people because they are jealous of all their money."
Right-winger observes high income around DC, a Democratic stronghold.
Conclusion: liberals are hypocrites.

My conclusion? This right-winger has very poor critical thinking skills.

well i clearly wrote the "dickless liberal" thing before you pointed out who he was. are you vouching for the logical voracity of this article? prehaps we could have an exchange on the subject, since, you know, we are in a discussion forum.

From your link:

I took one class he taught at Mason back in the early 90s. He was batshiat crazy and borderline senile then, and it appears he's gone full retard since I graduated.

Had I handed in a paper with this thesis (OWS activists are actually the 1%), and his evidence (the voting patterns of wealthy locales and the home values of OWS activists - neither of which really support his thesis), I would have gotten an F.

I don't really give a rat's ass who this guy is. He's making ignorant arguments, he's going to get called out on it, the butthurt will be delicious. That's all I care about. Not hero-worshiping some idiot with a blog.

Talk about "Done in One" you hit the nail on the head. $120k is not the 1% no matter how you do GOP math.

Usually its the good stuff that should be greened and the bullshiat gets redlit. On the politics tab, its the reverse.

A decent chunk of the greens comes from one of the bigger lying assholes on this tab. That should tell you something about the quality around here.

I'd be cool with this if these same folks weren't so quick to freak out when anyone criticizes the tea party. Occupy may have some retards but to discredit a whole movement because of some bad apples, when tea parties are basically clan rallies and have little to do with actual fiscal conservationism, is a bit silly.
