Thanks to my friends and constructive comments, i have learned that all caps feels like YELLING when read. My apologies where needed. And now i know how to format a case change from yesterday's blog. For discussion sake, lets take this a topic at a time, shall we? (again, this is a borrowed list of questions for public discourse; source cited below)

QUIZ Part 1

'Who started Occupy Wall Street? "

'Who is the father of OWS?'

'How did this movement start? '

'Who planned this event?' 'Who is paying for the Madison Avenue marketing firm? The newspapers? The flyers? '

'What role did SEIU play in the planning of this event? '

'Who is Stephen Learner? Who is Van Jones?
' 'What is the Center for American Progress?
 '

'Who is George Soros?
 What is his relationship to cap?
is he a crony capitalist?
 Does he pay his fair share?
 Is he getting rich off of the corrupt system of wall street speculation?
 How does he make his money? He made $7 billion dollars last year personally through his hedge fund and investments — is that okay? If yes, why? If no, why?'

This movement was started by Adbusters and spread through social media, just like the protests in the middle east. I first learned of it on Facebook. Don't you think if Soros was funding it, there would be TV and magazine ads? Just because Rushie boy doesn't like to read, doesn't mean you can't. Quit listening to him. He is a liar. It's proven that he has lied over and over. But you still listen to him. Why? It's almost like a battered woman who keeps going back to their batterer. Get some help!!!

Sorry, Soros is not funding OWS. Why would he? He is the 1% . The only documented tenuous connection is this: " According to disclosure documents from 2007-2009, Soros’ Open Society gave grants of $3.5 million to the Tides Center, a San Francisco-based group that acts almost like a clearing house for other donors, directing their contributions to liberal non-profit groups. Among others the Tides Center has partnered with are the Ford Foundation and the Gates Foundation.

Disclosure documents also show Tides, which declined comment, gave Adbusters grants of $185,000 from 2001-2010, including nearly $26,000 between 2007-2009...The fact that Soros gave money to Tides and that Tides gave money to Adbusters in no way means that there’s an “indirect financial link” between the two."

Could there be any current event that Glenn Beck doesn’t agree with not attached to Van Jones, SEIU or George Soros?

How are Glenn Beck’s boogie men any different than the corporate villains of OWS? Aren’t they all designed to be lightning rods to galvanize morons into angrily and zealously supporting an extreme political ideology that stands in the way of real solutions?

How can Glenn Beck attack the lack of corporate taxes paid by GE, essentially agreeing with Occupy Wall Street, and use that to criticize the movement?

Have Occupy Wall Street protesters ACTUALLY been supporting Obama or is that a figment of Glenn Beck’s imagination designed to support his uber paranoid New World Order conspiracy beliefs?

nicely done Ya.

QUIZ Part 1

Who started Occupy Wall Street?

Who is the father of OWS?

How did this movement start?

Who planned this event? Who is paying for the Madison Avenue marketing firm? The newspapers? The flyers?

the Tea Party, by contrast, started spontaneously with a scream by a CNBC analyst (I saw it when it happened), and a blogger's comments.

What role did SEIU play in the planning of this event?

Who is Stephen Learner? Who is Van Jones?
 What is the Center for American Progress?

Who is George Soros?
 What is his relationship to cap?
is he a crony capitalist?
 Does he pay his fair share?
 Is he getting rich off of the corrupt system of wall street speculation? ---too many questions, too little time. Soros has made money literally by tipping currencies of various countries. that is, by causing one currency to decline in value for his own profit. his values are indeed extreme. he wants total legalization of all drugs in amerika, for example. yes, he has become rich also from Wall Street speculation. he is indeed a crony capitalist very close to the Obamanoids.

How does he make his money? He made $7 billion dollars last year personally through his hedge fund and investments — is that okay? If yes, why? If no, why? ---it is okay as it is generally legal. however, the occuhippies are hypocrits for not protesting him, their godfather. they object against the rich having the opportunity to use massive money to express their political beliefs. tis is exactly what Soros does. they make out that the Koch brothers, like Dick Cheney, are evil incarnate. but Soros does his political spending on a much greater scale and in more insidious ways. his values are antithetical to american values. but then, so are the occuhippies' values.
