    All I heard was condemnation of the "terrible" Iranian, Syrian and Libyian authorities who tear gassed, shot and murdered their citizens who were "taking their country back" from the dictators running (ruining) their countries.  Now, the "Mobs" (says Ryan and Cantor) are illegally trying to send the U.S. and particularly the Wall St.

    1. Many claim they don't see a leader/s in the Occupy Wall Street. I say, if there isn't one may come out. Remember the French Revolution? It started in a bakery. When the Emperor/Elite took away the flour from the market to keep it for themselves, people could not bake/eat bread! The results is history!
