I don't disagree with you librul. It seems to me that corporations encorage both parties to attack each other endlessly and in doing so keep the people divided and distracted from what goes on behind closed doors. I don't doubt that if tearing the American people apart and setting us against each other will accomplish corporate goals that they would do it, but we can't let this continue.

Their movtivation? Money. This is a quote from an Institute of Policy Studies article. "Ironically, and tellingly, corporations can even lower their tax bills by overcompensating their executives. The higher CEO paychecks soar, the more corporations can deduct off their taxes." The whole article is worth reading. http://www.ips-dc.org/reports/executive_excess_2011_the_massive_ceo_rewards_for_tax_dodging/

FYI - The group camped out on the lawn is not destroying anything. In fact they have made a point to treat this public area with respect. Flower beds have been roped off to prevent trampling and yesterday a group of volunteers spent over 3 hours beautifying the area by raking and removing leaves from the lawn. Here is an example to their commitment to being respectful of all members of the public. http://www.whnt.com/news/sns-ap-tn--occupy-wedding,0,1648850.story. I urge you to visit the Court House and speak with those there before judging them and their actions.

This movement is not about Right or Left. In my humble opinion it's about Americans of all backgrounds wanting a better America. I ask that Chattanoogans please not tear each other down and continue the destructive path our country as a whole has found itself on. If the past has taught us anything it's taught us that when the American people work together there is nothing we can't accomplish.

Personal rights and freedoms are an American citizen's right and duty to protect for this generation and those to come. Our forefathers fought for the right to assemble and free speech. It seems to me that these two are honoring those who sacrificed to give their children and all American's these two important freedoms. I find nothing wrong with them standing up for principles that made this country a true inspiration to others. As for them staying the night, it's all about the principle of the matter. The city government has taken away a private citizen's right to peacefully assemble by passing an ordinance.

The whole point in the current pension plan is that a 30 year old is more capable then a 65 year old in pulling me out of a burning building and dealing with the multi-tasking, physically demanding job everyone in the police deal with on a daily bases.

If Cooper feels like he's going to die in the next 3 years then I say we let him go on his way and enjoy his well earned retirement.

Don't need a "Oh so you'll give me a lot of money to hang around? Ok, I guess I'll stay on." kind of police chief. We need a down in the trenches police chief to deal with the growing problems of the city. Has anyone here NOT seen the gang marks in your part of town? If so your in the minority.

Vote NO city council!!

This is another idiot move by Littlefield. Why in the world (or hell) should we pay a person that's leaving his job? If he wants the money he can wait 3 more years to retire.

We don't have the money to fix our schools, sewers, or fund the library!
