This gets you nowhere.

Perceptions are everything. Unfortunately, how some things are perceived differ greatly based on one's motivations.

2. Hillary made her "what, with a cloth?" annoyed face when O'Malley mentioned Glass-Steagal.

She didn't seem terribly poised and presidential then. She seemed, again, irritated that she should have to deal with the technicality of actually running the race.

4. Also stop this.

Clearly it's a competitive race.

10. What are we stopping? She looked annoyed, and then proceeded to avoid the topic.

I noticed her answer quite carefully avoided ANY mention of Glass-Steagal, at all.

She gave some good answers on other things, however.

5. Single issue new members at DU are singularily not helpful to everyone else.

The poor analogy is purely defective from the issue-oriented debate.

There was a family spirit last night that some do not like to see....I get it.

8. Senator Sanders has gotten things done.

He mentioned last night that he got funding for community health centers in the Obamacare bill.

Also, that he solved problems with VA hospitals as chair of a VA Senate Committee.

With regard to OWS, Sanders shares its concern with income inequality. But a difference is that OWS shuns electoral politics, and Sanders has been elected again-and-again.

11. When was the "Occupy crowd" angry and belligerent?

I visited many of the people involved in the movement down at Zuccotti Park. They were peaceful and shared books, food, ideas, etc.

I also want to remind you that the movement had a tremendous effect. Thanks to this movement, the public understood what the 1% was doing. OWS' language and ideas have permeated the culture and changed the dialogue.

24. I participated

So no, I did not miss them.

I remember attending rallies at Washington Square Park and Union Square Park. I also remember the marches from one site to another. Large groups were involved and they were peaceful.

The violence I recall came from the NYPD. They pepper sprayed people for exercising their rights of free assembly. http://gawker.com/nypd-pepper-sprays-flood-wall-street-protesters-1637831529

They destroyed the library that OWS had set up. http://gothamist.com/2013/04/10/thanks_nypd_ows_library_wins_settle.php

As a result of the NYPD's actions, the City was required to pay out megabucks. The above article from Gothamist regarding the library is just one of many payouts the City was forced to make.

Here's another cite regarding the NYPD's unlawful actions against OWS. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2012/jul/25/nypd-occupy-protests-report

And belligerent actually is.

26. Clinton looked whiny and smug.

Not presidential at all.

And, if she threw out the gender card one more time, I was going to scream.

And I'm a woman!
