Clergy Members To March Alongside “Occupy Wall Street” Protesters – NY1.com http://brooklyn.ny1.com/content/top_stories/148637/clergy-members-to-march-alongside–occupy-wall-street–protesters

“Well, I’m down here because Wall Street’s been bailed out, and the American people have been sold out,” said one protester. “I’m a former United States Marine…. I love the country, I love the people, but the government is criminal.” “I am currently a law student, I’m at law school, and it is taking a lot to adjust to make that possible in terms of education, because of the debt,” said another protester. “The interesting thing about our school is that we have a social mission. And a lot of us would like to serve that social mission upon entering law school, but we can’t because we need to find a job that’s going to satisfy our debt, so we won’t be in it for 25 years.” “Message is, you know, I was a business owner and lost my business because of the economy. My dad’s house is in foreclosure because of the economy and being taken away from him right now, and there’s just too much money in too little pockets,” said a third.

…with, of course, a lot of different demands.   This is fun to watch grow.

The American Spectator admits to being involved in the precipitation of violence at the Air and Space Museum as a means of discrediting the Occupy Movement.

Included in this, today, was the presence -and central role played by -of Patrick Howley, its Assistant Editor, in sparking the police reaction and violence.
