To argue with a person who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead.

My wife +Lori Dorn, who has breast cancer, tells her story about a TSA agent at JFK on Friday who required her to submit to a pat down due to her breast implants, even though she had an identification card for the implants that is used to prove that the implants are an actual medical device. The TSA agent would not let Lori show her the card.

Live Blog of #OccupyWallStreet: Day Fourteen, AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka Expresses Support

“I think being in the streets and calling attention to issues is sometimes the only recourse you have because, God only knows, you can go to the Hill, and you can talk to a lot of people and see nothing ever happen."

Bloomberg

The protesters are protesting against people who make $40-50,000 a year and are struggling to make ends meet. That’s the bottom line. These are the people that work on Wall Street in the finance sector. Most of these companies are no longer on Wall Street. We just use that as a catch-all term. And people in this day and age need support for their employers. We need the banks. If the banks don’t go out and make loans, we will not come out of our economic problems. We will not have jobs. So, anything we can do to responsibly help the banks do that encourages them to do that is what we need.

.....encourage people to deprive themselves of medical care because no one can know the cost with certainty prior to requesting it. It places people in the impossible position of diagnosing their condition before seeing a doctor.

the US stages approximately 40 raids every night ( Afghanistan ). Porter states that the number of raids in neighboring Pakistan is kept secret ( ! )

( It occurs to me that the AfPak area has one great military attraction compared to the jungles of southeast Asia...no need for defoliant ! Agent Orange being in bad repute. )
