You signed up to ATS just to say that? In one sentenced you created a divide between "protestors" and "ordinary folk" as if all the protestors are lazy bums who sleep all day. Talk about total propaganda BS. Who ever gave you all those stars is either brain dead or a shill.

seriously? they thought there was a FREE radiohead concert, and having just walked out of work a half hour ago near wall street, there is no way there is close to 10K...why don't you watch at 9 am when all the "protesters" are sleeping, while us ordinary folk are off to work. when they do decide to wake up, they go straight to their $1200 macbooks...what a joke.

A link to all the protests going on across the US.
Let the revolution begin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The bridge closure came just days after Sen. Mitch McConnell (R), whose Kentucky home is less than 13 miles from the bridge, derided President Obama’s jobs plan — largely based on infrastructure investment — as a “re-election plan.” McConnell doubled down on those claims Tuesday, saying the plan contained proposals both parties had “already rejected.” Kentucky Rep. John Yarmuth (D), who represents Louisville, slammed McConnell’s lack of leadership last night, telling Rachel Maddow that McConnell should “come back to the district” and tell Louisvillians himself that America can’t afford to invest in its roads and bridges:

people knocking the protests here on ats should be ashamed. it's honestly pathetic. people finally band together to say something and be heard, and people here sitting behind their computers sneer, 'oh well, it's only hippies', nothing to see here, or 'ill be impressed if i see 10k on a weekday'. why do i even bother posting here among such ignorance.

Yeah, I've gotta tell ya,
This whole thing has been an eye opener to me.
I can NOT wrap my head around how there are people who are as pissed off at the system as I am
and want change as badly as I do yet............?
Immediately shoot down any and EVERY attempt to bring about change!!!!!
People are out trying to change the very things you people piss and moan about daily in these threads but
don't have the balls to get off your fat, lazy, American asses and actually DO something other than being an armchair quarterback rooting for the visiting team!!!!!
These people are the heros.
There isn't a single man or woman overseas fighting this illegal war who is doing anything near as important
for the protection of your freedoms and liberties.
These are the people who we should be giving awards to.
They should be getting the medals.
THEY are actually speaking out and making their presence known.
You think that has NO effect?
Google "Police presence"
They know it works when THEY do it.
It works both ways !!!
What in the HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE!?!?!?!?!edit on 1-10-2011 by Screwed because: (no reason given)
