    ms b: Thanks for the compliment...I am up there with BO now!! I am sorry that you are just now realizing that you were one of those caught up in the sex, drugs and rock and roll. Weren't you?

    This is by far the most ridiculous rant that Mr. Maple has engaged in. Seriously, it was all about "sex, drugs and rock and roll?" What an idiot. You, Mr. Maple, are what is really wrong with this country. Ignorance and the inability to realize that that is what frames your existence.

    Joe: You failed to remember the legacy of those protests and what it did to this country and the poor souls who returned home to become self imposed persona-non-gratis. My brothers were two of those who came home and went into hiding...both are long dead from their services for this country as well as nearly one million others. I am still here. Let us remember them first and longest.

    I do agree with your take on today's politicians and what politicians were in those days, most of whom were Democrats. I do not agree with mob rule. I hope that you do not either.

    Are there crooks on Wall Street? You know it...just like there are on Main Street, Church Street, Kennedy Avenue, Johnson Lane, Nixon Drive, Pharmaceutical Place, Education Court and Business Boulevard.

    As you are one of the newest millionaires, will you be willing to send an additional payment to the IRS? What I find ironic is that these "protesters" are being paid, have corporate sponsors or union sponsors and are throwing rocks at the very people who provide jobs to millions of people. How about if we base the tax codes on how many jobs we as business owners provide to the public? Do the math...more employees...more/less tax...

    What is really sad for me is the level of ignorance these people show about their cause. At least during the 60s and 70s they could articulate what it was they were protesting...while hiding behind their real reasons...sex, drugs and rock and roll.

    Finally, I agree with Joe about something.
