Do you have a job? And if you do,what is it that you do.
Just curious.
And in a general sense.

I know there is a lot of pessimistic responses to this protest, like it won't change anything, or there is not enough organization, not enough people, wrong place, not a clear enough agenda, the list goes on, but I'm just glad that at least there are still people with a passion to unite against what they believe is unfair.

Oblig song.

yeh no it's not so much that I'm defending Wall Street, as much as I am not defending the Ruckus Society and some of the NGO's behind the protest. Goldman Sachs is pretty corrupt, and it's obscene they took bailout then turned around and got bonuses after the mismanagement and bilking of investors of their wealth and left the taxpayers to pick up the tab. But you see, from the Tea Party perspective, it was part of the manipulation of nationalizing the financial sector. It's just that these guys got their golden parachutes while the rest of us must succomb to the One World Order. The Elite will never suffer under the conditions they expect to force upon the rest of us.

It is quite a thorn in my side.. that this is getting little if any coverage.. other then the spread of word of mouth. Since this has started.. They don't talk about NY on tv, or the news.. and even my favorite webcam feeds from around NY are down, especially the MTV one
Where will I watch snookie now?

and dont say jersey shore... ugh /facepalm

10k isn't alot for a revolution. Even though some people may think that they are standing up (or just getting a free concert) I'd probably bet that very little of them have ever considered the possibility of a real revolution. It takes guts.

I havent seen Wall St, so obviously only going off media. But why on earth would OccupyWallSt need to promote lies to start a revolutionary protest? That is wrong, not in the moral sense, just downright stupid.

Revolutionist at heart. You dont need to hang a carrot out to try convince people to protest.

Freaking pathetic is right.

I bet you won't be surprised to hear that the occupy wallstreet and all other protests are getting next to zero news coverage in the UK.

The BBC has had one article that says about 2000 people marched on the NYPD headquarters and nothing else. Thanks ATS members for spreading the news to us that are obviously being kept in the dark from the powers that be.

First they came for the communists,


"First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me"

Martin Niemoller

I hope I entered this quote correctly for ATS.
You're right. Many do sitll have a job, a home, etc, but look around. A job can be lost in a second. A home can be stolen by a bank with a letter. Entire families are living in homeless shelters, under bridges, on the streets. People who thought they had pensions suddenly found out they don't. There's no one to 'bail (them) out'. There are no million dollar vacations for them to take. They are trying to figure out where their next meal is coming from. So many of the disenfranchised have no place to turn. There was a time when those who fell on hard times could count on their neighbors to step up. Now the neighbors are in the same sinking boat.

I hope those with work & homes can hold on to those things...the shelters are full.

First they take out your MONEY,

Then they take out your HOUSE,

And after that they take out your LIBERTY of speech

And finally they take out your FREEDOM

Because they say you have no RIGHTS

But this is good very good,because they are scared,very scared.Friday NYSE will be closed>guess why....
And when the 1 percent is scared they start making mistakes and is very good because they don't know but this is the beginning of the end AND WHAT AN END.....

Wall Street rally coming to Raleigh

RALEIGH -- As Occupy Wall Street, a so-called “leaderless resistance movement,” goes into its third week of protests and marches nationally, a group in Raleigh plans to meet Sunday to start their own show of discontent.

The local effort, Occupy Raleigh, has put a call out on Facebook for people to gather in Moore Square from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Sunday to stand with protesters occupying Wall Street in New York and other cities across the country.

A similar group met in Charlotte on Saturday.

On Web sites for the movement, participants describe themselves as people of all backgrounds and political persuasions.

People are well within their individual rights to disagree with the protests, either the why or how of them. Surely you don't seek conformity at the expense of the rights of the individual?
And, if you are so discouraged by the words of a few people on an internet site, I hope you aren't leading your movement.

There are problems with the country. This occupy thing, while I applaud their intent, isn't going to help.
