Stick around long enough and you will find that almost everyone on the spectrum who is old enough has had some really bad experience in the workplace, often involving a humiliating termination. NT co-workers will actually rub it into the face of the fired Aspie and make it very clear they are glad t...

A guy with a Ph.D. in particle physics ends up driving a cab. Sounds like he has Asperger's alright.

http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/story/2012-01-28/occupy-oakland-protests/52852280/1 As promised, the Occupy movement is using violence to get attention. Baiting the police to use tear gas and baton charges is a tried and tested method of making it to the news headlines. Expect more as the weathe...

Ok first of riots and protests are not the same thing and since I was discussing protests I will stick to that topic. Also, did you read anything I posted I already said I do not think the protests will make things 'better' it's too late for things to get better in this country or so it seems so ch...

What American interests are you referring to that are being harmed? and what about interests of other countries the U.S has disregarded in their attempts at policing the world? I know things are getting worse but I don't see how protesting makes things worse things are going to sh*t with or without...

The situation is already changing, thing is it will probably get worse before it gets better....also I think most of them do put serious, sincere effort into raising their concerns but lets not be ridiculous protests are to raise awareness and stand up for rights, expecting the solutions to come di...

Its annoying to openly disagree with the BS going on by doing things such as protesting?......I guess we should all shut the hell up and just go along with it or else right? I don't understand how anyone could possibly support this economic/political system anymore unless they seriously live in a l...

Social unrest in America will probably not affect financial markets much so I do not think that anyone will be profiting from it. You would need a massive tectonic displacement to have a real impact. For this reason, the Occupy movement, while annoying, actually does nothing to affect the overall ec...

http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2012/01/22/george-soros-on-the-coming-u-s-class-war.html As anger rises, riots on the streets of American cities are inevitable. “Yes, yes, yes,” he says, almost gleefully. The response to the unrest could be more damaging than the violence itself. “It will be a...

So, sir Xeno, do you think it would be wise to start learning mandarin chinese? Do not even try. It will take you years to get anywhere and even then you will not get very far. Despite the intended sarcasm on your part, comparing America's apocalyptic fears with the Chinese experience of societal c...

I wish that there were BS propaganda from OWS because that would help everyone to understand what these people are protesting about. Try as I might, there is no discernible ideology to be found that might thread the movement together other than a sense of rage against the system. The violence is rat...

Again, the Canadians. She is spot on when she says that many of the OWS occupiers are unemployable because of the bad choices they made and not because of what anyone else did.

If all hell does break loose, there is no way for the state to really ensure the safety of everyone. The powerlessness of the government was made very clear during the UK riots earlier this year. The Chinese have a saying: the few cannot defeat the many. With their superior numbers, the mob can prev...

It may have been just a small group, but the violence in Oakland in the past few hours is a harbinger of a wider breakdown. People who seek to change the system wholesale - meaning they want a revolution - know that their objectives can only be achieved through violence. And anyone who believes that...
