On the bright side I hear Obama is open to negotiations.
-- -- back.
Athlete in the title together -- -- you are -- and I guess Bob go.
Right protect personal policy you said the break you might -- during these that you.
I have actually drop pay -- secondly I stand corrected yesterday when I said that I didn't think there were associated with occupy and and they clearly they were there around the movement I do not think that stands for.
And -- -- -- Movement wants to blow up bridges as California is small percent do but nonetheless they did -- there with evidence.
I concede that point I haven't said that I think that the with the way you described a lot of damage -- the -- it.
When -- that if you protests around them a different cities you're gonna -- -- of that and it has drawn the fringe yes no question about is drawn to it.
A lot of people who are violent people and that is causing problems in the Arctic -- -- it.
I however stick with the position I support occupied -- -- -- their message and I believe that there's inequality in this country and that's for the -- -- -- with a Bob how can use support them when they are engaged in violent act I had an idea that's an area that I don't get me this country I don't have to disavow them notably the occupied movement.
As a whole supports anything like that well that's what they're doing look at the police are not the right there they -- that at the Tea Party.
The IQ Kimberly for bringing that up your -- say a small percentage of occupiers are actually you know -- -- -- willing to bomber -- commit terrorist act.
Well we've got -- now we've got drug use we have drug drug distribution we have vandalism breaking windows deprecating -- public throwing.
Molotov cocktails assaults threats the bank and now to a terrorist plot.
-- solid a small percentage are involved but certainly.
A spot much higher percentage of the Tea Party years who were violent well.
Well first of all the visitors site generational difference here between the -- but.
You know during the Vietnam War protests.
-- almost all that a lot more happened so which I was.
But we we did that -- that war was wrong which proved to be wrong.
And yes there was a lot of violence around the anti war we're in yes lot of it was despicable.
But yes -- the message in the in the the reason we were marching was right the war was wrong just like the that 991 is wrong.
No well I I am just because I you have I think got on the Vietnam -- can make it -- -- -- understand that Anderson where it was going what you're trying to what they're trying to achieve.
But that is still inequality is going to exist regardless they don't actually have -- -- that there.
That the thing that they're trying to achieve the Tea Party was against that on the government spending -- look back and certainly about obamacare.
This last thing is -- that on the same day that President Obama visited troops.
Where fellow citizens.
Are serving -- their country risking their lives then you have these five guys.
Yeah and it -- and different -- -- a -- a point of candidate that.
-- Obama going to Afghanistan on this day undermined that that the movement's message yes but.
Not so long ago few months ago the White House came out and said I'll I'll quote -- the president will work to ensure the interest of the 99% of Americans.
And -- well were represented and then senior advisor David Plouffe said we're gonna make this a major campaign issue did Bob Boyd unable to wait for -- greatest single domestic violence was perpetrated.
Outside of the world trade -- was by Timothy McVeigh right wing conservative candidate -- and it killed -- 160 Britney.
You would have been a lot of you can't look at these guys have succeeded in their bomb plot and people had been on that bridge and died but how would they have been any different from Timothy McVeigh.
Well is this golf all that all they've got -- -- McVeigh didn't old auto racing for the present the United States it -- today in the crowd those right there was one go around the blind you there and they're -- got one -- -- -- soldiers.
And -- I want to copy.
Frustrated former got -- something that's all you have though after McNabb got nothing I'm not mistaken that was Del Rio we got to watch that one of the doubt it was a bit before the Patriot Act was that before that.
Yes it gladly do it got -- Also they're waiting on these -- -- gathering Intel I example they -- it but yeah and the guys that I got an FC for whatever you want for free and the target list that's friendly the act nonviolent protest.
-- this Bob has a point about the generational differences younger people tend to do.
Dumber things and older people because that you get older you -- wins wisdom that you don't have -- you don't and that's if you gotta know that the guy in the mail room is not a 1% owner.
We're sending him a powder -- his life.
It's it's it's unlikely that you've whose average -- probably sixty of the Tea Party movement are gonna do these guys these eyeball there's -- -- yup it acts I've done about -- that for now it's so it's not a I don't believe that all executive -- says that if I think it is I just agent you.
Yes that's me on his -- what would question.
