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


True , and Inspired by Marxists who want to Destroy our American way of Life . The LAW must be used in this case against the Wall Street Bankers who commit Crimes , Not the MOB...........

Our American way of life was already being destroyed by a group much worse than any marxist for a long time, and very proactively for the last ten or so years.

You guys obviously don't know what occupy wallstreet is all about. You think its all children then you are just plain and simple being ignorant. I'm not going to sit here and explain what its all about, its all over the web and easy to obtain information.

You think people are doing this because they don't want to work? are you kidding me?



The op (and the following poster) of this thread are definitely ignorant and like-minded people. They don't understand that everyone has their grievances, and only those with the balls to let their government know what their grievances are there on Wall Street, Washington, DC, ATL, SL, Chicago, ect (contrary to the ignorant op who inferred it's only happening in Wall Street).

But if those fools like living in an Orwellian society, let them live in their bubble.

Which is the point. If you simply play nice and remain in your designated 'free speech zone' somewhere in suburbia, then you will simply be ignored. If you make a ruckus, step outside your 'free speach zone' and take your protest to where the enemy is, while making some noise, then you will be heard.



While I may or may not empathize with the protestor's agenda, this is just a blitz to try and gain as much media attention as possible.


Of course it is. The history books are full of people making noise and getting media attention, but those brave people who stood in the free speech zones exercising their free speech, trying hard not to offend anyone, are rarely ever mentioned. Why do you think that is?



What exactly are you even protesting? There seems to be no consistant agenda or actual action the protests would like. It's ideologues and/or board youth that have no jobs just "protesting" Wall Street?


Action speaks louder than words.



WTF is that exactly? What is the point? "We want rich people to know we're not going to take it anymore"?


Rich people only start to care about poor people when they see the scaffold or the guillotine being erected.



What about the poor single mom who's a receptionist for Mr. Wall Street but can't get to work because you're blocking the streets?


She is probably more sympathetic to the protests than you would imagine.



Better yet, why isn't this happening in Washington DC? Why not march on the White House? They're the ones that "bailed out Wall Street" after all? They took your money and gave it to the "rich" people...


Their owners are more powerful and logically makes for a better show on TV.



I'm also sick of hearing whiny girly men and chicks screaming like they're being skinned alive every time a cop gets near them with their iPhone camera rolling.


So you approve of thuggery, when it's done by the police.



"Occupy Wall Street" = "Board Attention Whores" looking for YouTube hits.



Of course. How else would the protesters be able to drive the point home. Newspapers are extinct, TV is an endangered species. The internet is the only massmedia that will be around 10 years from now.

90% of those protesting in Manhattan are either:

- 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.

These people are annoying the people of New York City who are late for work and school. They are disrupting public transportation and hurting innocent people who have nothing to do with government policy. Want to protest; then go do it on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington DC.


You're an idiot and a propagandist... this is not pointless name-calling, it is fact. Your post is an uneducated and partisan joke.

I see there is ignorance on both sides, which is truely sad. The ones protesting know somethings wrong but have'nt done the research to pin out what. Then there are the people who feel that protesting is disruptive and while that's true, I believe it's cause it's suppose to be, to garner media attention. Just as i'm sure there are many amungst the protesters whom probably know just as much as I do about "what is wrong with this picture"!
I am happy that there is unity in the streets to stop the criminal actions between the US government, big corporations, banking and anyone that has a lobbiest groups. The average american does'nt have money to hire lobbying groups to sway politicians to their wants and desires. We are tired of the lies, manipulations and connections to media giants to sway elections as well as opinion. we are tired of banks sitting on trillions of dollars instead of lending monies to small buisnesses. We are tired of secrecy and agendas of empire building of foriegn policy creating corrupted governments. We are tired of being labled as non patriotic when it has been said multiple times that revolution and dissent is the highest form of patriotism. Most of all we are tired of crony capitalism which has destroyed our free system. I myself am tired of materialism and profits being held to a higher standard then the will and health of those people it's destroying! I can go on and probably write a book about what's wrong with our world but what's the point most of the pee brain people on here are suffering from cognitive dissonance and may never fully understand why our country is on the verge of collapse. So i say to you this to sum up my concerns. Remember when the dollar is'nt worth the paper it's printed on to put the blame squarely where it belongs on those to ill willed to realise when it's time to protest and complain about an injust system even if you don't know why it's that way. Goodluck sheeple.

This by far is the exact meaning of "Ignorance Is Bliss" ... Shame on you for leading people down this retarded path you have taken.

To say we should be at the white house instead of wall street proves that point.

THE POWER IS NOT AT THE WHITE HOUSE... LMAOOO... THE POWER IS ON WALL STREET... NYC Capital OF THE WORLD....

This protest ,or whatever you would call it, has effectively exposed the fear and complacency gripping America. Instead of everyone realizeing that we all should at least have (figurative) chicken on the table, we have been trained to relish the pork scraps thrown to us while the ELITE cracking up and cracking open. Lobster tails.

I say Elite because this situation has been represented purposely as a me vs you situation. The "rich" are not being protested. Your defense mechanism kicks in and you say "well I'm doing better than them, they're mad at me!"

Please, Don't compare your self to the owners of the fed and other elite psychopaths who have hi jacked our nation.

When I grew up in the late 80s , I watched entire counties become unemployed due to the textile and furniture companies moving their work over seas. The look of fear and shame I saw, and still see when I go home, of grown adults constantly running from their "laid off" papers. And guess what Thomasville furniture is still as expensive as ever

We were told to go to college. Only to have the FAFsa declare that if our parents were middle class we would essentially get no gov assistance. But we went.
We wanted jobs. And we were hopeful. So we took out those private loans that are doubly ensured by the gov. Those loans that cover educations that have have gone up in inflation incomparable to any other resource , good , or service in our country.

Of course there was always the Army, in which the veterans come back to.work.minimum wage at Home Depot.

And we graduated. Only to be released into a world in which the money was.there, but why hire
? That could all go to the bottom line !!

Wake the f**k up! Where is your pension? Can you afford to send your children to school? To war? Can you open a business without utilizing the mind blowing grants that are only given to immigrant non tax paying visitors? Can you afford to retire? And if you manage to keep your house, will your children be able to keep it when the bank/state appraise it in an attempt to line their pockets with your lifes work.

Nahhh. Youre too busy being thankful you have a job while hoping your premiums don't go up.another
1000 dollars this year.

Or scratching your . perplexed as to why the democrats and republicans are playing golf together...

I work in the financial district. One day as they walked pass chanting, I heard the gripes of some of my colleagues about how it was "pointless" and "stupid" .

Then I asked "we don't work on wall street. Why are you upset?" No one could answer until someone.said "I don't like people challenging the status quo"
People love their slavery...

lol i love when the ediots make this so easy.
ya know theres a reason social justice, communism, and socialism are all seperate ideas and words. now everyone knows how ignorant YOU are. asking someone to simply define something, and challenging that i do not know the meaning of them, is absurd, considering we live in the information/digital age.


Social Justice- generally refers to the idea of creating an egalitarian society or institution that is based on the principles of equality and solidarity, that understands and values human rights, and that recognizes the dignity of every human being.

Socialism: A political and economic theory of that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.

communism: A political theory derived from Karl Marx, advocating class war and leading to a society in which all property is publicly owned and each person works and is paid according to their abilities and needs.

You want to call me out, well its coming back at you. Even a mentally handicapped person knows how to look up definitions. So obviously you are to dumb to know how to google, and therefore your opinion on any of this is meaningless. go back to your coloring book!

The way vacines slow population growth is not by nefariously killing off people in the third world, but increasing child mortality, which in turn means families no longer feel the need to pop out so many babies in order to get a few healthy ones who can support the family.

Do you seriously think there is a nefarious plan by Bill Gates to depopulate the planet by simply killing off people using vacines? I mean that's some seriously evil intentions of Bill Gates if true. Mass genocide using chemical weapons. I'm not sure I can believe that.



Yes there is.

Who wants a global financial transaction tax? Why Richard Trumka and his elitist Socialist buddies do



Here he talks about the "Global Economic Order"




Let me tell you, if you are on this site and think you are fighting the NWO but accept a global economic order because some protesters on Wall Street say it must be...I have some bad news for you....

I can't believe people are trying to turn this into a partisan subject. It's not the left, nor is it the right. I'm sick of these people that can't understand politics if it's not fit into some cookie cutter fraudulent 2 party system.
The people are pissed.

It was almost sad to see Hank Williams Jr's world crumbling on ESPN bc his mind just could not understand that the parties are not only golfing , but one in the same.
No one is taking some economic reform from protestors. The protestors want our elected officials to do their job.

shelter is available under most trees in the land, water is free-flowing and can be obtained nearly everywhere, air ... well, that's still being debated but last i checked, the supply is still readily available.

Ah, you're one of those comedic pundits like on AM radio. I went to school with a guy like that. When I ran into him again, he asked me to play Colmes to his Hannity. Those who realize it's a joke, don't think it's funny. Those who don't, are your toys.

Have you checked into the people funding the protest or seen their list of demands? Looks all about socialism or communism to a whole bunch of folks.

Don't get me wrong I am rooting for the protestors, but until or unless they change the way they hope to accomplish REAL CHANGE no way I will support them

I want them to learn and open their eyes wider, demand the things that matter to ALL in a way acceptable to the majority and anything is possible.

If they keep standing on the current demands and get funding from socialists and communistic groups....they are going to get zip from the general public, The majority of Americans do not want socialism, let alone communism

Lots of people that completely disagree with the protestors are pissed too. Being pissed is not enough reason to stand with people whose idea of fixing things looks to you like the demise of the Constitution.

It's not about partisanship, it's about the future.... The list of demands this group is asking for leads to a future I want no part of. period.

Change yes, socialism NO

Lots of people are doing many MANY things as most are awake or waking up quickly. Protesting is A way to be heard. Others are doing things THEY feel are more important and they respect your right to protest. Don't mean they have to agree with the goals or support it to be *doing something*

I agree, The People are PISSED! The problem is most of The People don't agree with those demands and have grave misgivings about the creeps in the shadows FUNDING the protest. If part of The People want to have a fit cuz they are pissed.... okay....

Don't expect me to give into a trantrum

Yes there is.

No there is nothing in that video that directly points to a diabolical plan. He is not talking of depopulation, but arresting population growth.

But there is definitely a diabolical agenda. He is not referring to using the vaccines to kill of existing people, that would never work. At the first suspicion that the vaccines are leading to large scale deaths amongst the reciepients, no amount of propaganda can make people take the vaccines. However I strongly suspect the agenda is to make people infertile through those vaccinations. Most of Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's vaccines are targeted at girls around the age of puberty. Increasing infertility among women automatically reduces the birth rate and hence growth rate. It is quite possible the infertility induced because of these vaccines is reversible after some kind of treatment, but an option that won't be available to the poor. Effectively, only those who can afford treatment will have a right to bear children. Only the rich shall breed, not the poor.
