Five Ft. Three

“A society that puts equality before freedom will get neither. A society that puts freedom before equality will get a high degree of both.” ― Milton Friedman

Those who think we need to celebrate our diversity in this country, why can you not celebrate the diversity to economic conditions?

What about having a diversity of opinions? Why can the Occupy Wall Street be allowed to express theirs, but the Tea Party cannot?

    How do you mean Beth?

  2. BB-Idaho says:

    Diversity to economic conditions? bubbles, recession and inflation?

  3. Beth says:

    What I mean is, why do people judge others based on how much money they have?

  4. Beth says:

    Why not judge people on the content of their character, instead of the size of their bank account?

    The Tea Party can and does express their opinions. In fact they had a very successful rally right here in DC that did just that.And yet, I don't remember anybody calling them or those who showed up at presidential rallies exercising the 2nd amendment with guns "a mob".I actually like and supported both groups right to demonstrate and voice their opinions.

    What I mostly hear from having attended OccupyMN on numerous occasions Beth is in the means by which these firms on Wall Street have come to have the wealth that they do.The problem is not necessarily in the end. It is in the means.Get out and talk to them.

  7. Dave Miller says:

    Soap, those would be my thoughts too.Beth, if someone becomes rich through taking advantage of someone even if their actions are legal, what does that say about their character?

  8. BB-Idaho says:

    "Why can the Occupy Wall Street be allowed to express theirs, but the Tea Party cannot?" The Tea Partycannot? Sure they can..they havetaken over the GOP, after all.

  9. soapster says:

    Not quite BB. The GOP has taken over the Tea Party.
