Free Forum Friday…November 18th Edition

(Free Forum Fridays are an open discussion where commenters are invited to bring up topics that may not have been covered in the previous week. Got something on your mind? Throw your opinion out there.)

The Occupy Wall street Protests have begun to turn ugly. Hundreds of arrests in several cities have occurred. In Seattle, an 84 year old woman and a pregnant woman were pepper sprayed. The Police department’s response was that pepper spray was not age discriminatory and that it effects people of all ages the same way (The Mayor of the city has since apologized). New York City has completely removed the encampment at Zucatti Park drawing criticism for Mayor Bloomberg.

Silvio Berlusconi resigned as Italy’s President amid the country’s pending financial crisis. Many Italians are rejoicing. The financial world is trembling.

What’s on your mind?
