You know what is funny and is a huge difference between you and I? You say those without jobs are looking for free food supplies in a condescending manner, but what you are really saying is those that are hungry in a condescending manner.

Difference between us. You saw the big boxes of bread and peanut butter and thought "ah a bunch of bums will be hanging around the protest site and eating" whereas I thought "ah they will simultaneously be protesting for a and standing up for something and feeding the hungry who venture in and stand with them."

You saw it as a bad thing, I saw it as a good thing.

My true hope, though, is that we Veterans can act as first line of defense between the police and the protester. If they want to get to some protesters so they can mace them, they will have to get through the #ing Marine Corps first. Let's see a cop mace a bunch of decorated war vets.


I love that! Now here's some good old soldiers who have the spirit!

When violence comes to America it needs to be focused and efficient, not some rage based lashing out in multiple directions.

The longer this thread gets, the more I keep thinking about this old movie about an American youth that goes to study at a Shaolin Temple in China. All through the movie he keeps wanting to fight and show the world and put bullies in their place, his teachers keep showing him the error of his ways, sometimes patiently sometimes in sheer exasperation.

Eventually there comes a time in the movie when his teachers unleash him....with focus, skill, and righteousness on his side. The lesson IS there is a time to fight, but the ends do NOT justify the means.

The moral of the story is there is a time for everything. Right now this group is not standing up for the entire country, they are lashing out about things affecting THEM.

If they want the country to support them they have to represent the best interest of all, not just themselves. Many of their desired goals would destroy the yrs of hard work millions of Americans have put into their lives, for their futures.

They need leaders with clear goals that are realistic. Right now they are running on the dollars of the very powers they are protesting.

Sadly, it may have to become a political movement to sustain itself, but it will lose focus if that's what happens. And you're right. It can't become a violent riot, as was seen in London this past summer, it must have goals and it must entice the US populace to join.

me too...except, I would bet most of these "good old soldiers" are 25 or younger.....they gave their lives to us....and they are met with no jobs, no homes...etc....well, as this grows to include the entirety of the 99%, you will see people of all shapes, sizes, colors and ages we all have our individual needs, but we all have the same desire....WE WANT OUR COUNTRY BACK.....and WE WANT THE CROOKS TO PAY....both as in pay us back....pay the lawyers they are going to need, and pay their dues...in jails...with great, big, angry inmates.....that's what we want....

So what is going on in NYC today?!? It is Monday morning, are the protestors growing in number or shrinking and going back to work? Have any Union supporters shown up? How many vets are there in uniform?

Let's get some first hand accounts in here this morning! Is this thing going anywhere or is it fizzling out?


Came in here to find out the same thing... any updates?

Thanks. I was mostly looking for an update (in general) as to how the rally is progressing. A bit difficult putting the pieces together given the lack of coverage and the off-shoots around the country. I'm trying to get a feel for the size and commitment in its entirety and of course, first hand accounts from members who are there. These are probably in other threads, I've fallen behind...

I know, though it has remained small, lexington ky has now been going about 4 days and one is about to start up in Huntington W. Va. so I will be driving there since it's not far and I'll post pics and updates.
I would say NY is going very strong as it is entering week 3. Also there are some other decent sized ones going on in other big cities. That article has a pic from another city (cant remember seattle or oregon). They are every where.. it's even over seas in support of America.

The US is holding the lantern, it's not a violence that needs to come to America. It's America, that needs to lead the way for the rest of us. All of us in the western world are suffering, we need some to carry the lantern. We lack our own leaders.



If they want the country to support them they have to represent the best interest of all, not just themselves. Many of their desired goals would destroy the yrs of hard work millions of Americans have put into their lives, for their futures.

First of all, and most importantly, is that heads need to be cracked. This isn't a statement of violence, it is a statement about a system that needs to work. You can't bring about such horrifying things to the entire world, and get away with it. In and by itself, that would be a written invitation to coming generations to rip us off for all eternity. You want that for your children and childrens children?

I don't agree with the manifesto they made. They made this manifesto in the idea, that they want to be "good people". This is not a time to be good,it's a time for civil disobedience ... drop the pleasantries. The first statement "We are one race, the human race" is a statement of brotherhood ... don't complicate it with some bloated messages about mommy wanting to go out and drink, do drugs and have fun too ... statements (equality). It doesn't belong here ... never did.

I listened to the protests in Iceland, they were very similar. And in spain they were waving the Icelandic flag, and proclaiming they'd do the same ... Iceland is literally bankrubt as a result of it. They stood up and whined, whined and whined ... but they provided no solutions. Iceland has oil rights ... still ain't drilling ... it has fishing rights, still fishing too much ... and now, they are selling their land to CHINA. Understand what I am saying here? They are betraying their country, by selling it to CHINA for cash ... they're stupid idiots, literally ... even saying they are idiots, doesn't suffice.

This CROWD MUST BE LEAD. Understand? It isn't a question of waiting for another two years or so, and then MAYBE it can be something. This crowd, is a starting point ... and somebody has to take charge, in one way or the other, to stop it from becoming another ICELAND. Because if you don't, it will ...

The US elected GW Bush senior as president. They so much loved his victory, that they elected his imbecile son, an uneducated baffoon to office ... and this, is the result. And I, and thousands of others, voiced all this time, that it would go this way. People were so drunk with blood, that they neither saw us, nor heard us ... now what we said has come true ... NOW LISTEN! BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE AGAIN!

Take charge! NOW! Do it peacefully if you can, if not ... do what you have to do. We are the children of the 50's and the 60's. We know this road, we know what to do ... even if the youngsters don't.

I agree it is our generation that knows what to do... I am watching, and while I feel a similar urgency as you, I disagree with much of what I have been reading from the current generation and what they hope to accomplish

I refuse to assist in our own demise... I know which side I'm on, I am not so sure they do, or care...yet

Out of all the posts and blogs I have been reading of the youth supporting the protest...VERY few I would lead to anyplace but jail... seriously...

Watching closely, I want a lot of the same things you do from these peeps but I am not going to jump on a band wagon only to have it lead to the demise of the Constitution

I hope this is something that Wallstreet did not plan for, not something that they manupulated to take place!! If the whole thing goes sour who knows what might happen

Atleast there are some people who are true patriots and realize what is going on and fighting for it. Dont be disscouraged if it is not the whole army going out there, but maybe those men who go will serve as an example!

I think the more realistic headline would read
"NYPD attempts to mace Marine veterans, Marines retaliate, 4 officers and a SWAT team end up in hospital"

You just do not mess with Marines, its like playing with matches and gasoline. I doubt mace would have any affect on these guys who are trained to resist it.

The problem is if there is violence, due to the protestors becoming the pawns of their financial backers...

Then they make THEMSELVES the enemy....No one wants that, they are this country's future

That IS the simple math though. If the violence does the bidding of the people currently backing the protestors with $$$ the public will turn on them.

Right now we just want them to be safe and wise up, many of us would love for them to become cohesive enough we could support them...

Buying into radical left propaganda would seal their fate and make them the enemy of those who support and defend the Constitution

Oh, I'd be will to bet there's going to be violence. It's part of obama and his handler soros' plan. obamas approval numbers are so low his chances of re-election are pretty slim. The only why he'd be able to stay in office is something big happens, like say mass riots across the country where he can declare martial law. These protesters are being used and all it's going to take is the activation of the few plants in each of these groups and the violence'll feed on itself and spread. It's not a matter of if but when.
This whole thing feels staged. Anybody else find it odd that this is happening just before elections? Why is this happening now and not when Wallstreet "crashed" and was bailed out? Seems like that would've been the time to protest. No, it couldn't happen at the beginning, obamas poll numbers were high, he could do no wrong, so no we can't stage a protest then.

Inside a true directive... Remember these words:

I AM the people--the mob--the crowd--the mass.
Do you know that all the great work of the world is
done through me? I am the workingman, the inventor, the
maker of the world's food and clothes.

I am the audience that witnesses history. The Napoleons
come from me and the Lincolns. They die. And
then I send forth more Napoleons and Lincolns.
I am the seed ground. I am a prairie that will stand
for much plowing. Terrible storms pass over me.
I forget. The best of me is sucked out and wasted.
I forget. Everything but Death comes to me and
makes me work and give up what I have.
And I forget.

Sometimes I growl, shake myself and spatter a few red
drops for history to remember. Then--I forget.
When I, the People, learn to remember, when I, the
People, use the lessons of yesterday and no longer
forget who robbed me last year, who played me for
a fool--then there will be no speaker in all the world
say the name: "The People," with any fleck of a
sneer in his voice or any far-off smile of derision.
The mob--the crowd--the mass--will arrive then.


-Carl Sandburg (1878-1967)


We're One in the same.





To the men in the shadows of the men in the shadows... We are watching.

wow, Sandburg ???

you think quoting a radical socialist who was hellbent on the destroying the US is helping your cause ??
not surprising.

As we shall see, there was another Carl Sandburg unknown to the mid-century or later public and unacknowledged by his commentators. During the crucial, watershed years surrounding World War I, when the future of American domestic and foreign policy was being shaped and the circumstances of the common people were as much a subject of fierce public debate and confrontation as they were at any moment in American history before or after, this other Sandburg was a profoundly different writer from the Sandburg lionized at mid-century. This other Sandburg believed that America was a faithless monster of a country.
