This Whole "Occupy Wallstreet" thing seems like theater of the absurd.

I have seen this same concept many times.

It doesn't make sense for multiple reasons....

Well tell Bill Gates and Warren Buffet that.
They each are giving at least $50 billion dollars away.
I guess they are just stupid with money.


Your response makes no sense...

Yeah.. my one problem with the movement is that it is misdirected. It should be the towards the government, I think what they are doing is good, I just think they need a wake up call. The only ones that can do anything about wall street are the people THROUGH the government.

Then again.. I don't have a full feel for what is going on in the streets. All the people that are aware it's the government have to be down there spreading that message right? I think Occupy Wall Street confused some people and became protest wall street. I think the original intent was just to get a really good stage but some people took it in the literal sense.

That would be true if the media was even covering it!

Only thing i saw was on BBC.

THey do'nt march DC because it's so ghetto they'd probably all get shot.

Things happen. Personally it smells like communism.

well good for you, at least your sniffer is working well even if your eyes deceive you ... parts of this protest have been all over the msm ... pick any source, you'll find some story on each of them.

they don't march on DC because they have no real target ... Wall St is an illusion.
they don't march on DC because it would bring their commanders bad press ... that'd be akin to bad manners and mostly ineffective.

The trouble with posts like this one is the ones pointing a finger and saying those who disagree are ignorant, always seem to be misspelled.....this only validates to us, we are the ones correct and you are the ignorant ones....

I get typo's happen but I have yet to see a response like yours that is both articulate AND spelled correctly

I am not salve

thanks for clarifying and admitting that it is a borrowed statement.
now, any chance they can develop a concise statement of their own?
we've been waiting and watching and hoping but alas, borrowing seems to be their only front so far.

the "gimme, gimme, gimme" concept won't get them far for long. never has, never will.

Just an fun update, and thread coming... here are the "Demands" of this ridiculous collection of bored malcontents:


Demand one: Restoration of the living wage. This demand can only be met by ending "Freetrade" by re-imposing trade tariffs on all imported goods entering the American market to level the playing field for domestic family farming and domestic manufacturing as most nations that are dumping cheap products onto the American market have radical wage and environmental regulation advantages. Another policy that must be instituted is raise the minimum wage to twenty dollars an hr.

Demand two: Institute a universal single payer healthcare system. To do this all private insurers must be banned from the healthcare market as their only effect on the health of patients is to take money away from doctors, nurses and hospitals preventing them from doing their jobs and hand that money to wall st. investors.

Demand three: Guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.

Demand four: Free college education.

Demand five: Begin a fast track process to bring the fossil fuel economy to an end while at the same bringing the alternative energy economy up to energy demand.

Demand six: One trillion dollars in infrastructure (Water, Sewer, Rail, Roads and Bridges and Electrical Grid) spending now.

Demand seven: One trillion dollars in ecological restoration planting forests, reestablishing wetlands and the natural flow of river systems and decommissioning of all of America's nuclear power plants.

Demand eight: Racial and gender equal rights amendment.

Demand nine: Open borders migration. anyone can travel anywhere to work and live.

Demand ten: Bring American elections up to international standards of a paper ballot precinct counted and recounted in front of an independent and party observers system.

Demand eleven: Immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all. Debt forgiveness of sovereign debt, commercial loans, home mortgages, home equity loans, credit card debt, student loans and personal loans now! All debt must be stricken from the "Books." World Bank Loans to all Nations, Bank to Bank Debt and all Bonds and Margin Call Debt in the stock market including all Derivatives or Credit Default Swaps, all 65 trillion dollars of them must also be stricken from the "Books." And I don't mean debt that is in default, I mean all debt on the entire planet period.

Demand twelve: Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.

Demand thirteen: Allow all workers to sign a ballot at any time during a union organizing campaign or at any time that represents their yeah or nay to having a union represent them in collective bargaining or to form a union.

No, seriously, they're demanding getting paid even if you don't work...



LMAO

I applaud them for marching on Wall Street, but they should be marching on Washington DC.

I'm concerned these demands are a precursor to a violent future.

Hold on tight.

It is. One of my favorite blogs, Ace of Spades, has this to say:


The Left doing what the Left does best: Marching to protest [fill this space with, literally, anything].

What do we want? Free unicorns!




OK, I'll bite...how about I fill that space with something inane, like 'Obama's Certificate of Live Birth"...oh that's right..that is the right..Cuz them Teapartiers sure do love themselves a protest!! Just as long as it is directed at that african in office!

The left seems to be protesting equally silly things...like historic unemployment and the economic collapse of the Middle Class....oh wait a second...that is not so funny.

Who is your master? The Cabal, The Controllers, The NWO??? Their time is up as their empire will crumble. And so do you!!! It is easy to see you are a paid puppet. People are tired of the control imposed the Cabal and this is why non-violent protests are a must.

Again, he would love it if it where a Tea Party protest marching on the FED.. Why? Because he cares for the people? No.. Because our president has a (D) next to his name.

ummmm, since when is communicating NOT taking action ??
seems most of our current dilemmas began through communication (of one kind or another) ... and since most of these acts began on a piece of paper, where do you see the difference?

75% of Washington DC works for Wall Street and that is the issue...get it?

They are protesting precisely the right place.

and only the ignorant think this is a left right issue.

I bet if you asked most of the people at these protests who they support, it would be ron paul, someone running on the RIGHT.

you have a lot to learn if you think social justice = communism or socialism.

90% of those protesting in Manhattan are either:

- college students there because their professors told them they would get extra credit for attending. They don't even know why they are there, they just want 5 extra points on the next test.
- naive college students who don't understand how the world really works, or who were brainwashed by their far left wing professors.
- People who watched "V For Vendetta" one time too many and think they can bring down the evil Capitalist pigs.
- Communists and socialists.
- the usual Anarchist agitators who come out for every protest.

90% of those opposing the protests in Manhattan are either:

- Ignorant people who watch Fox News every night and take their biased presentation of the protests as factual.
- People who don't care for the First Amendment right to peaceable assembly and prefer a society of submissive mindless fools.
- Idiots who don't have the slightest idea of who is partaking in the protests and assume it's a bunch of homeless hippies who don't have anything better to do.


These people are annoying the people of New York City who are late for work and school.
Oh no! The sky is falling, people are annoyed!
:shk:


They are disrupting public transportation and hurting innocent people who have nothing to do with government policy.
The government is hurting America as a whole 500X worse than some protestors blocking their way to the subway and making their drive to work take longer.


Want to protest; then go do it on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC.
They can protest wherever they want.

I feel it's misdirected as well. And Obama sees this coming so he misdirects by being the one to tell people to put their marching shoes on. What a joke!

protesting an illusion is pointless.
Wall St is financed, manipulated and monetarily dependent on the Federal Reserve ... get it yet?

with a comment like this ^^^^^^^^^^^ , everyone can be assured you have no clue what any of them are

fyi - social justice is the distribution of advantages and disadvantages within a society.

please, if you dare, explain the difference between them (socialism & communism) ... and how social justice plays a part in both.
