  •  I appreciate you and Scoundrel showing up. (7+ / 0-)

    I am very happy that there is so much attention being paid to OWS. The press worked very, very hard to completely ignore it.

    Give Scoundrel some nice, fresh tropical fruit from me.

    •  he is now munching happily on a slice of pineapple (6+ / 0-)

      and reading your diary...

      that combination is a wonderful pre-dinner treat!

      seems to me ows ought to start drawing attention to how Wall Street adds cost of every gallon of gas bought by consumers..just cause of speculators...

      somewhere in that paragraph above is a great Mr. X memo
      about Lloyd meeting with Tony..yesiree...

      •  Amorality, the ability to tell bald-faced lies (5+ / 0-)

        with a straight face and insatiable greed seem to be job requirements for both Wall Street and BP. The depth of the depravity never ceases to amaze..

        •  I heard the most amazing/disturbing thing today (5+ / 0-)

          it was a sceintific study...

          they took a control group and gave them a situation to observe...

          then they asked them to recall what they saw/heard..

          Next they took another control group..and after they saw the same event they gfave them a list of observations others purportedly noted already...

          only thing is...a couple of those observations were baldfaced lies...

          turns pout..the second group had like 73% agree/confirm they saw/heard those same lies...

          Seems like once you hear something or think others believe something the pressure to go along is so great it causes this..and the weird part??

          they proved the brain is altered in such a way as these people actually "remember" these non existent things..their brain actually believes that..

          any wonder why so many can be amoral and get away with it..with all the lies and deceptions being voiced???

    •  Not locally. It is really amazing how much (6+ / 0-)

      local coverage OWS has gotten and how fair it has been. It has been extraordinary. I can hardly believe it. It started early and has lasted until now.
