On FOX last night Huckabee had former democratic congressman Arthur Davis who left the Democratic Party after Obama said supportive things about OWS, we are having an affect.

Now we must decide if we really want to make a difference, or do we just want to complain.

I don't wanna spend money on a pollution machine but I don't drive because I don't see well enough to drive. Stuck here in the city and locked out of the car culture only suburbs.

Suites me fine. I think the suburbs are a failed cultural experiment. Time to close 'em down. get everyone into more efficient high rises and turn the suburbs into farms.

"it's the only way to be sure"

I grew up in a suburb and played outside

How nice for you. my whole family "fled" brooklyn to be in the superior suburbs. We were left behind. But I played outside! (And more)

I learned about life before them. Some of them still haven't. It's a sheltered existence (Present company accepted) I can't say the problems of the suburbs applies to every individual.

I just believe people should be living in cities. It's more efficient. Less need for cars. More space for local farms. And I think cities are more tolerant. We gotta live on top of each other. You MUST learn to live together.

When you're in the suburbs you see less poor. less people unlike you. It's easy to draw lines against others.

But I'm sure it doesn't apply to you.

I know, the world is filled with catch phrases and bumper stickers like "No War", but sometimes the simple messages are the best I guess....

I listened

there was no message

fox and that candidate need help

on a separate note, "my" workgroup thinks we can reach out to Jill to speak at Occupy Phoenix anniversary, some fear it could be red as endorsement, I feel we shouldn't worry about that so much as getting more attention to the gathering so I say invite, tempt, whatever to get her if we can, as you know "co-opting" is not a big concern of mine. Did you find the media paid a little more attention if Jill is there?

Do you need me to point out that most people are born with their position:

point taken

but the interview could have been cut to a single statement

it's poor journalism on foxes and the candidates parts

[-] 1 points by factsrfun (6441) from Phoenix, AZ 2 years ago

I agree, but FOXnews doesn't take my advice very often..

thought I would throw out a little optimism this morning
