Occupy Oak­land turns violent

Her­man Cain spent the week occu­pied with a string of sex­ual har­rass­ment scan­dals, rem­i­nis­cent of the days of Bill Clinton’s cam­paign for Pres­i­dent. Pres­i­dent Obama spent the week in Cannes, occu­pied with dis­cus­sions over aus­ter­ity and the Greek debt cri­sis. And cities all over Amer­ica were occu­pied by peo­ple claim­ing to rep­re­sent 99 per­cent of Americans…and 99 per­cent of those peo­ple were protest­ing peace­fully. If only the other one per­cent did the same.
