Breaking News Wednesday December 14, 9:30 AM: Incredibly (although not really), "the protester" has been named as the Time Magazine Person of the Year!
While "the protester" includes other movements such as the "Arab Spring," that too was not what I would consider to be a success.
As a matter of fact it may prove to be much more destructive to that region than #OWS could ever have been here in the US.
Portrayed as a Democratic uprising in the media, what history will prove is that the "Arab Spring" was an opportunity for Islamic fundamentalists to take over governments with the student protesters merely being used as pawns.
So while "the protesters" is a large global story the Time Man of the Year was an unsuccessful one!
5,464 documented #OWS arrests from September 17, 2011 through December 12, 2011!
