"60's hippies please report for duty." - Best comment in the live stream chat yet. It looks like they are down to a few dozen protesters now. I think we can call the occupation canceled. I have to give big props to everyone that did go though... At least they did something.

Still, we won't see any meaningful change until enough people watch their kids go hungry for one day too long. We ain't there yet, but it's coming.

De-regulation is the mantra of the Left. It is socialist code for big govt and Statism and bureaucratic interference in every aspect of our lives, even Happy meals.


Surely "left" is a typo? I thought De-regulation was the capitalist mantra for freedom to poison and contaminate our collective resources of air, water and lands? lol Oh, and not to mention to freely enslave the underclasses. lol

Hippies huh? Right.

Young people,trying to get a thing going,to create change,because so far everyone who's come before them allowed things to get really-screwed-up. Those people out there have jobs,go to school,have children etc. In this economy,not many can afford not to report for duty at the good old 9 to 5. Bills gotta be paid yadda yadda. There is a strategy.

Hard for me to stomach sideline detractors. I am sick to death of people who never have a positive thing to say. More than that,I am OVER the apathy and laziness that is the norm for most people in this country.

In live feed chat,we've had people from all over the globe chiming in and giving support,cheering this on.

Eyes on the market all day. What started out as a frightening early dip in the Dow and others has now stabilized for the most part...

Epic failure is NOT speaking out when you deem it necessary to do so and assessing those who do as epic failures.

I would rather see a slow steady buildup of protesters, than any violence. Anyone who cries "FAIL" because people are not acting like fools, should just go play some violent online game to get their fix.

JMOHO....

This is only the third day. Many predicted that it wouldn't even last 3 days. Patience is necessary; the civil rights protests didn't achieve their aims in a single day either. Nothing this difficult can be accomplished in a single day.

One of my favorite quotes of the non-event:

"Nearby, Micah Chamberlain, 23, a line cook from Columbus, Ohio, held up a sign reading “End the Oligarchy” and said he had hitchhiked to New York. “There are millions of people in this county without jobs,” he said. “And 1 percent of the people have 99 percent of the money.”"

Well maybe they have 99% of the money because they aren't "line cooks" who spend more time hitchiking to stupid protests instead of actually working to be the best line cook they can be and eventually running the entire kitchen.

Yeah, that's how it works. Just that easy.

Go there and work hard kid, making 6 bucks an hour. You'll own this place eventually.

Sounds like something that I heard on an old 50s tv show.

Wall Street Protests Continue, With at Least 5 Arrested

New York Times: City Room


The first three arrests came on Pine Street, when a police lieutenant ordered that two men wearing ski masks be taken into custody. Officers then arrested a woman wearing a plastic mask on the back of her head.

The next arrest came a few minutes later on when a deputy inspector standing on Wall Street ordered a man wearing an orange hat to keep moving. The man, who had turned around in a crowded sidewalk just west of Broad Street, spoke to the inspector for a moment, then lifted his hands and said that he was having difficulty moving.

At that, the inspector reached over a curbside barricade, grabbed the man and tried to haul him from the sidewalk onto the street. As the man backed away, the inspector lunged forward, holding onto the man and toppling the metal barricade. The inspector fell to the sidewalk and a moment later the man in the orange hat was also on the ground, being handcuffed.

The police confirmed that three men and a woman were arrested under provisions that make it illegal for two or more individuals to wear masks, and that another man was arrested on charges of jumping a police barrier and resisting arrest. (A reporter and a photographer for The Times who witnessed the episode between the man in the orange hat and the police did not see him attempting to jump a barrier.)

Two people were arrested on Saturday as they tried to enter the building housing the Bank of America while wearing masks, said Paul J. Browne, the chief police spokesman. Those arrested came from several states, including Massachusetts, Michigan, Virginia, New Jersey and Washington State, Mr. Browne said. One person arrested was from Manhattan.

Another woman was arrested around 11:45 a.m. as she was writing in chalk on the sidewalk on Broadway near Zuccotti Park. “They just came up and grabbed her,” said Jessica Davis, 19, who identified the arrested woman as Andrea Osborne.

So, working hard isn't the "in" thing anymore, huh?

Instead, it's better to get out there and protest and have someone hand you money?

Oh no no no, haven't you heard? It's better to be a corporate/bankster suit not working all that hard and have someone hand you money. Now THAT'S the IN thing,,, well if you are among the 1%. lol

I know what corporations do, and I know not all corporations are "bad." I was playing on words.
He was referring to citizen welfare and I merely pointed to corporate welfare.

Do they outsource jobs and build new manufacturing facilities in other countries, while simultaneously shutting down their US facilities, enjoying government subsidies, and protecting their holdings in overseas banks?
