Geez, talk about hyperbole and jumping to conclusions!

First of all, a protest movement and its goals are hardly "socialism". Tuberculosis, in case you were unaware, has apparently gotten more hardy. Some strains are now drug-resistant though it takes culturing to come to that conclusion (and it's worthwhile to note that the resistance was to the "single standard" regimen). Your OP didn't include a source link or author credit either, despite the extraneous code.

Did you bother to read the other links? Despite the obvious attempt to pin blame or linkage to OWS participants, none of the stuff you posted indicates, unequivocally, that such exists!

In a trial, your "evidence" would be inadequate to convict. In this particular debate, you have not provided convincing arguments to support the thread title.

"From each according to his ability, to each according to his need" has never actually worked.

Why do you suppose liberals are supporting OWS, a "movement" that offers no solution and attracts the worst in our society?

CHICAGO (CBS) — A man involved with the “Occupy Chicago” movement has been charged with child pornography.

Robert Reitz, 21, of the 2000 block of South Canalport Avenue, was arrested Monday in the 100 block of West Quincy Street for an active warrant for aggravated child pornography, police said. He is being held without bond, according to the Cook County Sheriff’s office.

At the time of his arrest Reitz said he was involved with security for Occupy Chicago–a claim that was denied by protest organizers.

Geez, talk about not wanting to face the reality of OWS:

I "suppose" that liberals see a dwindling middle class, inordinate power and wealth accruing in the hands of a few, and have more than a little sympathy with OWS, while not necessarily wanting to take the same measures.

It's interesting that you persist in insisting that all the OWS demonstrators are on the same level with the lowest of their lot. Kinda seems like desperation from the right.

Out of idle curiosity--do you boycott "communist" goods such as those out of once-Red China? Which, BTW, seems to be doing quite well economically? Maybe it's the lack of lipstick........

God's judgment on OWS.
