Allen West and Howard Stern On 'Occupy Wall Street'

Over the past month, the crusaders at Zuccotti Park have braved the elements, tussled with police, and stood their ground against Mayor Bloomberg. But how much do the protesters actually know about the economic system that they're fighting to change? To find out, we asked 50 occupiers a series of questions about Wall Street, taxes, and government. The results were mixed. See if you can do better.
•    What is the Dodd–Frank Act? 84% did not know.
•    Who is the chairman of the Federal Reserve? 42% said “Don’t know.” 38% said Bernanke.
•    Who is Elizabeth Warren? 64% said “Don’t know.” 24% said “professor/senatorial candidate.” 10% said “Warren Buffet’s wife.”
•    What is the “SEC”? 68% said “Don’t know.”
•    What is the top marginal income tax rate for the richest 1 percent? Only 10% got it right (35%).
•    What does the government spend more on? Health care and pensions, education or the military? 94% said “the military” when the correct answer is “health care and pensions” at 43%, Defense is at 20%.
I'm sure if you asked a Tea Partier they could give the right answer.

Allen West expressed criticism of the Occupy Wall Street protests.
“I think the hypocrisy of this movement is somewhat laughable,” he declares. “I would agree with them that we don’t need to have crony capitalism in the United States of America, where we have government picking winners or losers in the free market or trying to be a venture capitalist. But when I see signs that these people are holding up signs saying ‘end capitalism,’ then my question is: What do you replace it with?
“I think there is a danger in the people on Capitol Hill starting to embrace this movement, especially now that we know that the American Nazi Party and the American Communist Party are also starting to align themselves with this Occupy movement.
“When you really start to peel the onion back and look at some of the things these protesters want to see in America, it is contradictory to the foundational principles and values that we have in the United States.

If Howard Stern sees through these idiots it's only a matter of time before everyone starts looking closer at these protests. I love it when these people talk. It's better then a comedy show. I know the main stream media isn't covering these protesters, but they are passing up some great entertainment. Maybe they could have a game show with these Occupy protester and call it Occupy Are you smarter then a 1st grader? Somehow I think the first graders would give more lucid answers. I wonder where all those haroin needs go when they are done with them?

The sad thing is this isn't a joke. These people are really like this. These are the people Obama and the Democrats stand with. But there is a silver lining to all this. This is the beginning of the end for all of them.

Economic Freedom in America Today

For years the United States has been a world leader in economic freedom. But runaway government spending and burdensome regulations have caused a decline in economic freedom in the United States. If our economic freedom continues to fall, how will it affect our quality of life?

Special Needs Teen Girl Got Raped At Occupy Cleveland. This Isn't The First Rape At OWS

An “Occupy Cleveland” protester tells police she was raped in her tent over the weekend.
Cleveland police are investigating an alleged sexual assault incident Saturday at the “Occupy Cleveland” rally involving a 19-year-old female student from Parma.
According to police reports, the 19-year-old student was instructed by “Occupy Cleveland” personnel to “share a tent with the suspect due to a shortage of tents.” The suspect identified himself as “Leland” to the woman. The woman told police that after she had thought the suspect went to sleep in his own bed, she slept in a sleeping bag provided to her by the rally.
The student went to school Monday and told a teacher about her sexual assault incident in Public Square — which is being classified as “kidnapping/rape” — prompting the teacher to immediately contact the authorities.
It's bad enough this happened to this poor girl. But to have protesters saying that she isn't telling the truth or calling her a Tea Party plant is just sick. I don't know anyone that would send their special need child to a protest like that as a plant. That says a lot about the mindset of these protesters though. It  The fact is this isn't the first time this has happened at OWS. Drugs and sex seem to be a hobby of the protesters. That is why both men and women need to be careful at these protests. It's just not safe there.

It's time the media starts confronting what is really going on at these protests. Rape, violence, antisemitism, theft, drugs and economic terrorism plots. They keep saying that the OWS and Tea Party are the same, but nothing could be farther from the truth. I'd also like to know when the Democratic Party and Obama will come out and say something other then "we support OWS"? If the Tea Party had had any event like these the lefties would have demanded the Republicans speak out against it. And the Republicans would have. Obama and the Democratic Party started all this and give fuel to the fire. It's time they do what is best for this country and speak out against what is going on at these unsafe protests. Saying nothing and keeping these events out of the news is no different then covering them up as if they never happened. People that go to these protests need to know the dangers in doing so.
