US citizens of all political persuasions are still reeling from images of unparallelled police brutality in a coordinated crackdown against peaceful OWS protesters in cities across the nation this past week. An elderly woman was pepper-sprayed in the face; the scene of unresisting, supine students at UC Davis being pepper-sprayed by phalanxes of riot police went viral online; images proliferated of young women – targeted seemingly for their gender – screaming, dragged by the hair by police in riot gear; and the pictures of a young man, stunned and bl

    • @GraveMatter- so you don't want to get all the lobbyist money out of politics? You think it's fine and dandy that there's no division between investment and commercial banks? You in love with the idea that middle class politicians go to DC to become millionaires and perpetuate the system of filth?

      People sure are willing to put up with a lot of shit just to avoid agreeing with something the left is complaining about.

  • "Unparalleled police brutality..."? You obviously weren't alive in the '60s. Back then, we had the real deal in regards to police brutality with billy clubs, tear gas, flash-bang grenades, real bullets, and no freakin' mercy.

  • This op-ed needs to be put in some context:

    1) It's written by Naomi Wolf, who herself was arrested at OWS in October and who is the author of A Handbook for American Revolutionaries. She's a New Yorker who has been part of the protests and who wrote a book about how to run one of these protests...and yet she had to ask OWS people what they want? Sorry, but Wolf sounds a lot more like she is one of the OWS protestors, not like she's someone on the outside looking in.

    2) While many OWS people More..

  • Getting the big money out of politics,

    Restore Glass-Steagall,

    Reform the corrupt Congress ....

    Lofty goals.

    Funny ... I'll bet the Tea Partiers and Libertarians would agree with those things.

    So organize. Get permits and hold day-long demonstrations here and there. Vote! Back your candidates.

    But please do NOT:

    Destroy my parks,
    Trespass,
    Cost us millions in lost tax dollars for damage and police,
    Fight the police,
    Obstruct roads,
    Interfere with other people's rights.

    Thank you.

    • You live in the fantasy land pal, I know a lot of liberals and I know a lot of conservatives - the conservatives own guns, reloading gear, high quality assault weapons and stores of ammo, plus they shoot them (train) often; the liberals don't.

      Liberals are for gun control, conservatives aren't.

      I'm sure some liberals own some firearms, but not to the extent conservatives do.

      But don't take my word for it, why don't you go down to your local gun store or gun range, be sure and wear your Obama More..
