You're stuck in a rut and you can't get out of it. Yes I know the company doesn't work for the gov. Try thinking out of the box and maybe you'll get it.

I get where you are going.

The path, towards the left, guided be Progressives, takes you to Socialism/Marxism/Communism,. Just after the is Hooverville and more squalor.

No thanks.

The Govt has no business is telling a company what they can pay anyone.

Yes, and every path lead by the religious right leads to a theocracy and Jihad...or every path path lead by armed forces leads to dictatorships and naziism. Makes total sense, let's take everything to extremes, right?

Glenn, is that you?

exactly.

The ones that are on this forum screaming on and on about communists are nothing more than a bunch of corporate worshipping fascists.

Um there was until, *Drum roll please* the Govt gave the banks a bailout.
The natural course that would have happened is the bank CEO does poorly, the Bank looses Money, the Bank closes.
Please insert what ever other company name you want in place of Bank. As the Govt gets in the way, again.

This fact cannot be made any clearer than it is in the above post.
Thanks for hitting on the very meat of this matter - the government pulled the only real mechanism that was in place that punishes corporations for poor performance - and then wants to make political hay off devising new, useless punishments for the same thing.

I agree with the OP. This is one of the most counter productive protest I can think of. Protest Big corps. by showing up wearing their shoes and the cloths they make By drinking the bottled water that they produce. Protesting against
capitalism with a man that has a net worth of $50 million dollars he made by selling books and movies that inform the unknowing public of the corrupt capitalists. Protesting for equal and a better education by standing in the street holding a sing instead of going to school. At least with the Arab spring that is what you can call a protest they knew what they wanted and went for broke. I guess in the end all the folks on wall street can do is go home with their heads held high and think at least they tried. But things will not change like the old saying "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it's natural manure" Thomas Jefferson to William Stephens Smith, Paris, 13 Nov. 1787
For better or worse it is the only way things change

That's nice.

Too bad I am not part of the Religious right, or the Anti-Religious Left.
And no, Conservatism did not bring about Nazis and such. Nice try though.

Yep, that's me.
It is so hard to go through life being called such names.. *cries in the corner*

It is also so much harder when shouted down by those that preach acceptance and so on.

As much as I want to disagree with you, I just can't. This does smell a lot like 'Wag The Dog'.....
The only thing this will accomplish is: maintaining the Status Quo.
Nothing will change. Nothing ever will. None of the NYC protesters, or protesters anywahere else in North America should expect to get a new job due to their actions. They shouldn't expect Warren Buffet, or George Soros to come walking dorn the street handing out $1000.00 bills to everyone.
If you want to make a change, protest the POLITICAL LEADERS! They put you in this situation. they ALLOWED the bankers to steal your money, and spend it willy-nilly
You're a bunch of idiots, protesting the WRONG people!

The GOP and anyone else should endorse it too!! The government has been hijacked by Wall Street, and isn't working for the PEOPLE anymore, they are corporate sock puppets...and that's a FACT!! They are controlling the federal reserve, the government, and pretty much everything that influences your life.

And the whole "protest the fed" or "protest the government" is beyond laughable given that they are mere sock puppets. They are all bought by Wall Street, and it's about time the people demand politicians work for them instead of Wall Street.

Both parties (and that half-party the TP) are bought by Wall Street. The only difference is, the dems pretend not to be bought (Obama), while the GOP completely gave up on pretending they not bought




FACTS:



Go OWS!!!

I wonder what sort of change would happen if all those protesters and the ones cheering them on were to stop cooperating with the corporate elite and stop using their credit cards and banks. Smoke and mirrors...again.


I've been against these protest from the beginning. You are right the best way to protest is to STOP SUPPORTING THE SYSTEM. these protest will change nothing! if anyone can name any protests that have then my hats off to you! people will march but wont sacrifice there petty luxuries and like my name suggest "we will have no freedom without sacrifice"! But at least some of us will get some excercise! Are'nt you people tired of being manipulated?

The topic poster - I actually believe you could be right, unless the media give this Occupy movement more exposure.

Civil rights protests in the 60s and 70s, anti-Vietnam protests, anti-Apartheid protests in South Africa, Gandhi...do I have to go on???

So you rather have people keep quiet and take it? Because your other option (stop consuming) is kinda ridiculous given you won't be able to leave your house if you do that


PS: I expect you to post a pic of yourself taking your hat off to me

First off all the protests you named were not just protests but included boycotting as well. This was the point I was trying to convey! Protesting is fine as long as it's kept small, organized and does'nt disrupt the area too much. This so called occupation is ridiculous because it's not about anything in particular so how can it change anything? If it does I promise to take my hat off to you! All I see is the Democratic party wagging the dog to keep prying eyes off of whats really going wrong with the Obama presidency! It's just more Smoke and mirrors manipulating the public and in the end i fear it will set up another violent outcome that will usher in their planned police state! Though this is all my humble opinion and I've been wrong before so we will have to wait and see. Hopefully the coldness of winter will come sooner then expected and most will go home!

Maybe a fact, but when the corrupt endorse your movement... your moment becomes corrupt.

Scares the #take out of me that y'all are blindly running into it no matter what you find out.

Sounds a lot like 2008's "Hope and Change".....

What then? Since there are so many people breaking the rules we can't hold any of them accountable. I think they all have to be held accountable and we may as well start with the bankers, then wall street, then the corporations etc.

What type of logic is that supposed to be? That'd mean that any movement from here on out would just become corrupt if someone corrupt endorsed it?

Does it ever occur to you that they're just pretending to endorse it? Or they're only endorsing it to look like they're decent people? Or only endorsing it so far, and once it reaches a certain point they'll do everything they can to discredit it? They are scared of it.

Believe it or not but this is a fact : they'll only endorse so much of it if they are doing, because there's no way on earth they'd want the Occupy movement to fully succeed, because if it did the corruption in the US would be pretty much gone.

Occupy represents a real changing of things if they get enough support and become clear enough with their ideas, because they're mostly (you always have some clowns.) decent people. I think many of you are just scared of them.

In response to this, I'm going to consult my ever so handy conservative trolling checklist.

Aggression masquerading as masculinity? Check.
Poor spelling? Check.
Paternalistic condescension? Check.
References to OWS as hippies? Check.
References to "liberals," as children? Check.
Advocacy of continued, entirely de-regulated, pro-corporate, trickle down Reaganomics as the solution to the current economic meltdown? Check.
