Does anyone look at all those cartoons and photos or is it just wear and tear on their mouse scroll button as it is with me?

They're intended to expose YOUR LIES!

Ben & Jerry's Supports Wall Street Protesters as Parent Company Unilever Endures Union Fight
Ben & Jerry's Supports Wall Street Protesters As Parent Company Unilever Endures Union Fight | Fox News

Quote:
Ben & Jerry's may have served up a creamy bowl of support for Occupy Wall Street's attack on corporate profits, but the ice cream purveyor's European parent mega-company is having its own issues putting away a messy pension battle with its workers in Britain.
Ben & Jerry's, the socially-conscious Vermont company that was purchased by Unilever in 2000, voiced its support for the anti-Wall Street protests on Friday, expressing its "deepest admiration" to those who have participated in the protests, which have now entered their fourth week.
"We know the media will either ignore you or frame the issue as to who may be getting pepper sprayed rather than addressing the despair and hardships borne by so many, or accurately conveying what this movement is about," read a statement on the company's website. "All this goes on while corporate profits continue to soar and millionaires whine about paying a bit more in taxes. And we have not even mentioned the environment."

Now blucher suggests that his cartoons are to expose my lies. I am afraid he may be clinical.

How about it folks? Do you absorb them or just scroll on by?

I look at and react to every one of them. They are usually pretty amusing. He's got a knack for finding them and I hope he doesn't stop posting them completely. I just think their relevancy hits harder when it isn't diluted among a dozen other pictures in a single post.

I would agree with this statement. I really don't like when there are a whole bunch of pictures. I also tire of the same ones over and over on different threads. (As you likely know, I usually disagree with most of them....)

I JUST read that article right before checking cityprofile (this thread)!
Yeah, what about Garcia? It's no surprise to me... I am no Gamecock fan anyway.. I root for Clemson....

These poor "occupy wall street" so-n-so's dont seem to have any organization or disiplin what so ever. They kind of remind me of the hippies around the Haight Ashbury district in S.F. during the late 60's and early 70's.

They don't have much organization, no. Right now, they're still little more than protesters. But there are signs that OWS as a whole is getting organized. It won't stay completely disorganized for long.

I think they want redistribution of wealth as some ventured into residential areas of millionaires. I wonder if they have the the Federal cell phone program that gives free phone service to over three million Americans. Although the pretense is that it's not a tax, it’s paid for by a monthly universal service charge on other users. When you rob one guy and give it to another guy of your choosing and hide what you’re doing that’s backdoor socialism.
