No - this is not from Occupy Wall ST., but from a D.C. Tea Party gathering.

The AP reports: The House voted Monday to exclude U.S. airlines from an emissions cap-and-trade program that the European Union plans to impose on all airlines flying to and from the continent beginning next year.
With the legislation, which passed by voice vote, lawmakers joined the airline industry and the Obama administration in opposing the EU Emissions Trading Scheme scheduled to go into effect on Jan. 1. The bill now goes to the Senate.
The Washington Post reports: The Obama administration is wrestling with the thorny question of whether scientists should inject healthy children with the anthrax vaccine to see whether the shots would safely protect them against a bioterrorism attack.
The other option is to wait until an attack happens and then try to gather data from children whose parents agree to inoculate them in the face of an actual threat.
A key working group of federal advisers in September endorsed testing, sparking objections from those who consider that step unethical, unnecessary and dangerous. The National Biodefense Science Board (NBSB), which advises the federal government, is to meet Friday to vote on its working group’s recommendations.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- USA Today reports: Texas Tea Party Patriots will host a "modified Lincoln-Douglas debate," with Republican candidates Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain confirming their attendance.  At the most recent GOP debate in Las Vegas, Gingrich said that if he's the nominee he wants to challenge President Obama to seven forums akin to the Lincoln-Douglas debates -- each of them three hours apiece. He repeated the debate challenge this weekend at the Iowa Faith & Freedom Coalition event.
The Chicago Tribune reports: Controversial Nation of Islam leader Minister Louis Farrakhan condemned the killing of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi on Tuesday, warning that America and other Western powers will soon face severe consequences for their support of the uprising that led to the dictator's death.

"I know something of the good of Moammar Gadhafi that made me to love him as a brother and to feel a great sense of loss at his assassination," Farrakhan said during a two-hour interview with radio host Cliff Kelley on WVON-AM.
Chicago's Mosque Maryam, the Nation of Islam's international headquarters, was purchased 40 years ago with a $3 million loan from Gadhafi, but Farrakhan said his admiration of Gadhafi was not tied to Gadhafi's money or power.
Farrakhan acknowledged that Gadhafi had killed people, but he said all other world leaders, including President Barack Obama, are responsible for the deaths of others.
"Did he kill people? Well, hell, did our president kill people? Talk back to me!" Farrakhan said, prompting some of his supporters to say, "Yes," in reply.
"You have made your president an assassin, that the only value that he has now is that he was responsible for the death of (al-Qaida leader) Osama bin Laden," Farrakhan said, his voice rising. "He was captured without a weapon. He should have been brought to America, put on trial for the American people to see this man. But he was executed so you will never know the real truth.",0,5790121.story
The Vancouver Sun writes: Throughout the summer and autumn, as talks on a continued U.S. military presence in Iraq foundered, President Barack Obama and his point man on Iraq, Vice President Joe Biden, remained aloof from the process, not even phoning top Iraqi officials to help reach a deal, according to logs released by the U.S. Embassy here.The omission is an unusual one, given the high priority that U.S. officials had given to achieving an agreement for some sort of residual U.S. presence in Iraq after the Dec. 31 pullout deadline set in a 2008 pact between the two countries. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and other senior Pentagon officials spoke often about the need for an agreement in a pivotal country in a volatile region and insisted talks were continuing up until Friday, when Obama announced that all U.S. troops would be coming home before the end of December.

Jewish World Review opines: T he worst fears about Obamacare are now being realized in a decision on Monday by the Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MPAC) established by the law to supervise $500 billion in Medicare cuts. MPAC, whose decisions have the force of law, has voted to impose drastic pay cuts on all doctors under Medicare and, by extension, under Medicaid (which tends to follow suit). The cuts will effectively reduce the real pay for specialists by 50% over the next ten years --- including a 25% reduction over the next three years -- and cut general practitioners' pay by one-third over ten years (and that assumes that inflation stays down at 3% a year).  [As Nancy Pelosi said: "We have to pass this bill to see what is in it."  As Sarah Palin suggested, the bill has within it items which will act just like Death Panels, and here is one example, as doctors will quit taking Medicare/Medicaid patients, or simply retire, leaving masses without proper access, resulting in some case in death.  As promised, there is fundamental change, but without the hope.]

Personal Liberty opines: China has loaned more than $1 trillion to the U.S. to fund its deficit-spending, a fact that many Senators have denounced since the United States provides the country with foreign aid, Fox News reported.
“Why in the world would we be borrowing money and then turn around and giving it back to the countries that we’re borrowing it from?” Senator Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) told the news outlet. “If they have enough of a surplus to loan us money, they have enough of a surplus to take care of their own needs.”
Democratic Senators also voiced their outrage with the current level of aid that the U.S. is providing to China.[P11667790]&rrid=394582776
Expose Obama reports: With a record number of Americans out of work,the government agency responsible for advancing employment in the United States just doled out $1.5 million to promote collective bargaining and improve labor relations in Vietnam…-
The Petoskey News Review reports: RICHMOND, VA (WTVR) - The Richmond Tea Party is asking the city of Richmond for its money back. They say they're not happy to hear that Occupy Richmond protesters get to stay in Kanawha Plaza - for free.
In April, the Richmond Tea Party held a Tax Day Rally in Kanawha Plaza. They say before they could use the city venue they were charged nearly $10,000 and had to comply with a series of usage forms and procedures.
Colleen Owens, a spokesperson for the Tea Party, says it's obvious the Occupy demonstrators are not being held to the same standard. "We followed the rules, we followed the law, we got all the permits, we paid all the fees, we had to jump through all the hoops that they asked us to.  "And they’re not having to pay for the park, they’re not getting permits, they’re not paying for police, they’re not paying for port-o-potties, they’re not paying for emergency personnel," Owens says.,0,4830888.story
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Expose Obama writes: The results of a formal law-enforcement investigation into whether Barack Obama is eligible to be president of the United States could come as a “shock,”according to Maricopa County,Ariz.,Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
Tuesday night,speaking to a tea-party group in Arizona,Arpaio said,“I can’t tell you everything,but there could be a shock there somewhere that my guys came up with. I can’t talk too much about it. It’s in the process.”
David Limbaugh opines: Back when Obama was trolling for illusory savings to manipulate Congressional Budget Office scorekeepers into decreeing that Obamacare would be revenue-neutral, he proposed the ingenious scheme whereby the federal government would subsume 100 percent of the student loan industry and eliminate evil private-sector profits going to "middlemen."

By calculating $60 billion in savings over the next decade, Obama gleefully inflated student loans by $40 billion and boasted that he still had $20 billion left over to count toward reconciling the balance sheet on his grossly over-budgeted national health care bill.
Obama smuggled this student loan legislation into the Obamacare bill because it probably never would have otherwise attracted the 60 needed votes to pass on its own. Such relatively small-potatoes legislation, by itself, wouldn't have supported the bribes Obama used to cram through Obamacare.
You don't need to be a math wizard to understand that this is just a slick way of forcing taxpayers to take a bigger hit by increasing the number of loans that will never be fully repaid, yet another redistribution of wealth from our Marxist in chief.  [I heard on Fox News that this could mean that a student, who signed a contract to get his loan, may owe over $200,000 and end up paying less than $30,000. 

Nor do you need to be a clinical psychologist to grasp that our government is teaching young adults how to be financially irresponsible with impunity.
