Lets abolish the sale of politicians to both corporations and unions and establish a fair playing field.

Unions are dictating that is why Occupy DC is just a token presence.

So.... What are they "dictating"??

Surely, if you're suggesting they dictate the narrative, you must have an actual accusation of what they dictate..

Why CWA (union) is involving OWS in their protest against verizon. Verizon is not wall street bank which OWS is protesting. Verizon employees about 200k employees in USA. Union cherry picked Verizon and misguiding OWS.

Same way they are doing Occupy Walmart. People are not stupid. I support OWS and my agenda is no Union or Corporate influence on Government. I am not against hard working americans but I am against exploitation by union leaders.

So.. In your world, verizon has nothing to do with the deregulations that caused the problems OWS addresses?? Nothing to do with the laws that permit corporations to seize workers' pensions (even though they pioneered it)?? Nothing to do with the bailouts that probably should have gone towards relief of Americans rather than American corporations??

Or perhaps you're just a Libertarian that's trying to DICTATE what OWS represents yourself, but you feel helpless that it might remain more Liberal than Libertarian??

Your past posts suggest the latter.

I am no Republican no democrat, independent but voted Obama in 2008. I know union fully support him and will steer OWS to vote Obama. Not my vote.
