The Quote of the Decade: Open Thread

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills.

India, the result of Gandhi, is 600 million people living in maximum poverty.
So, ultimately, the bourgeoisie won’t go without violent means. Revolution! Yes, revolution that is led by the working class.
Long live revolution! Long live socialism!”
Watch the video for yourself, and listen as the people cheer his comments:

Bill Maher is also asking these protesters to start being more violent then they already know. He told these protesters they should throw a brick through Fox News' window to make them shut up about covering the violence at these protests.
