    Most likely another right-wing nutjob trying to distract the media from the OWS Movement, or a plant to try and paint the left as violent. Can't trust the GOP-baggers or their paint-chip eating brainwashed followers.

    Well, all I know is that you can only push people but so far with your blatant disregard to the plight of the "little man" and your Party's willingness to jump through hell hoops of fire for the top 1%ers before something pops.

    There will be more bogus attempts to smear OWS. Guaranteed. The 1%ers have thrived on distracting the masses, so that's what they'll try again,
