Yep! WHY can these people not see what is going on????
The OWS people have been PLAYED by Obama. He's been talking down the "FAT CATS on WALL STREET" since day one. And now everyone is all upset at the FAT CATS. Obama has engineered this with his rhetoric.
Obama has consistently said one thing, and done another. But people are lapping it up.

And don't tell me to take it to DC because people who say that really know that this is where the criminals are but they just don't want to admit that their pet political groups/parties/movements might not be as vigilant as they wish.

Here are some of the official demands of the OWS movement.
First of all. There are no Official Demands of the Occupy Movement.

Heaven forbid people take their complaints directly to those pulling the strings, right? The people who benefit the most when the system succeeds AND the people who benefit the most when he system fails...the people who never actually seem to lose...the people who have the entire economic game rigged in their favor...yeah, ignore them...

There doesn't need to be a specific thesis for a person to understand why we need to protest.

A "democratic government"? That's what the narrator of the video calls the government of America.
Read your Constitution. We are guaranteed a Republican form of government, not a democratic form.
Karl Marx, himself, wrote that "Democracy is the road to socialism". Vladmir Lenin went on to write that "The goal of socialism is communism".
Take a look back through history. You will find that the socialist experiment has been tried 87 times in countries all around the world. There are only six-or-seven countries today that still have socialist forms of government. All other experiments in socialism failed miserably.
Those who seek after socialism seek after a demonstrated failure.
There's no guarantee, but like you said, "it's a step in the right direction". "Cute", I don't know about that one though...
Well, the petition idea is cute and all, and it's a step in the right direction, but what guarantees have they that the politicians aren't simply lying when they sign it? Politicians do that with disturbing aplomb...
I can't argue with that, it would definitely send a much stronger message. Better yet, why not give him the petition, and give him that mafia-esque threat?
Would it not be a bit stronger message to go by that same politician's office, and say "Look, Louie - we catch you taking corporate money form ANY corporation, including the unions, or if we catch you passing legislation to favor ANY corporation, including the unions, then you ain't working for us, and are going to be out of a job just as fast as we can get you recalled - not waiting for the next election cycle. Capiche?"

Is George Soros funding the protestors, or is it re-directed (TARP/Stimulus) tax dollars?
Occupy’ Protester Want Ad: Earn $350-$650 per Week
Are these protests the transition factor to take us from freedom to a Communist dictatorship? Is this part of obama's plan for us?
This protestor is quite proudly carrying the Soviet flag,, isn't he aware that constitutional freedoms go away under a Communist dictatorship? Does he prefer tyranny, or is he just doing the job he was paid to do?
Those of you who personally know George Soros or Van Jones, what's next?
