    If these protesters want to do something that's actually useful, instead of milling about aimlessly in big-city protests, why don't they volunteer at a food bank or help build a Habitat house or any of number of quiet things to make a true difference in someone's life, as opposed to these "look at me" protests that grow more pointless by the minute?

    If you're tweeting and texting and updating your Facebook page while protesting, you're not exactly evoking the images of despair caught by the likes of Dorothea Lange.

      ...and...

      or any of number of quiet things to make a true difference in someone's life, as opposed to these "look at me" protests that grow more pointless by the minute?

      I think they and "we" have been "quiet" for too long while FoxNews and the rest of the media owned by the assholes have been tooting their horns of deceit, 24/7.

      "Pointless"? No. I think you are the one who is not getting their 'point.' We do.

      Instead of the "Arab Spring", 2011 would be known as "The Year More People Volunteered at Middle Eastern Food Banks." Woopee!

      Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!
