Though I love what the protest stands for, I saw this video and related it to the protests in wall street.

What anti-ows thinks of ows.

This is obviously a joke.
The people that are there right now aren't incoherent stoners just there because there bored and feel cool.
This protest is about many things, people are there because of the 1% not paying there fair share.
People are there because of the unemployment rate and our deficit, People are there because they want there children to live in a world much better then one we live in today. And many more examples..
I swear it;s like people are still listening the MSM these days.

"IT'S LIKE THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THERE PROTESTING" I'm sick of hearing that. Like seriously people? Just do some research and you will find out that this is more then a angry mob holding up traffic.
In reality it comes down to the individual level. When people are losing there jobs every single day,
there house getting foreclosed, they cant afford healthcare, etc.

People are saying that this protest is meaningless...What do you mean? IT'S A START.

Which brings me to a fellow ATS member's thread


You know what he said? YOUR PRESENCE IS MAKING A DIFFERENCE. How does protesting make it worst? It obviously get's more attention then complaining about it here on a website that is irrelevant to most of the world.

Get real people, there making a difference, a huge difference.

Yeah, to be honest. People who cannot step out of their own personal bubble of comfort, and take a peek into the real world. And know what is going on in your country. This is not a conspiracy theory. We. Are. Getting. SCREWED. The entire banking system is screwed. The FED is screwed. The Gov't is screwed. This is for all of that.

We got some people on twitter going along with this BS. like "Oh they're just hippies" and all that #. or you go on the 99 tumblr, and you got some dudes being like "I worked hard all my life, etc etc, i do not want handouts, yadda yadda"

The best? Use the search function and you will find something that will top this i promise you.
I posted this thread because i've been seeing a consistency of people saying
these people are pinheaded by the way they approached this protest.

They've certainly got there attention,
and honestly how else are thousands of people going
to try and get there message across? They can't besides
posting it on websites that an average american wouldn't visit.

The protest's have certainly opened some eyes for people to look into it.
If the protest is the wrong way of doing it.. then how else are they going to do it?
Tweet away and rant on forums until they give up knowing there's no hope?

you've got to be suspicious about the people that sign up for ATS and start downing the protests..

if you have nothing constructive to say please go back to the you-tube comment sections where you belong.

more then ever, the famous Great Dictator speech applies

They are zombies, downing what the right tells them to while they cheer for more freedom wrapped in the flag.
"Mmmmm Freedom" The right will continue to tell them to down the "hippies" as THEIR corporate masters order them too.

As a pro OSW'r this movement will continue to grow. WE do not want money from any corporation, we do not want big business involved in Government, We do not want private corporations controlling key elements of our nation's infrastructure.

OWS seems to be a left wing version of the tea party. It was started by a small group of people that were genuinely upset with the status quo, but did not have a coherent aim or well articulated agenda. Well-established political groups capitalized on the group's angst and lack of focus and hijacked the movement. Just as the tea party has become a simple re-branding of the Republican party, OWS has become a re-branding of the Democratic party.

The tea party when on to undermine the intellectual underpinnings of the Republican party. Smart Republicans with sophisticated and complex ideas that did not align with simple dogma got crowded out by the shrill voices of the tea party. Something tells me when it is all said and done, OWS will do the same thing to the Democrats.

This was made before OWS and is about the tea party. However, OWS and the tea party have more in common than they would like to admit.
