So what do you really know about "Occupy Marines"???
I can't find any real names on thier site...just someone named "Joker"...I'm always skeptical when people asking for money (which they are at the very
top of their page) don't share their real information. Maybe I just didn't see it...but I can't find anything.
But I did find this at the bottom of their page.
Proudly donated by The Pirate Party of New York.
Who is the "Pirate Party of New York"...I had no idea...so I followed their link on the Occupy Marine page to their facebook page.
And what are their "Activities"?
United States Pirate Party.
And who the heck is the United States Pirate Party???
The Pirate Party's platform centers on issues of intellectual property. "Like its international counterparts, the USPP’s main practical concerns
are digital intellectual property and privacy laws—specifically, the abolition of a 1998 digital U.S. copyright law, the reduction of copyrights to
14 years (from 95 years after publication, or 70 years after the author’s death), and the expiration of patents that don’t result in significant
progress within four years (as opposed to 20 years)."
So it is basically people who want to download music and movies for free (more "free" demands from OWS...shocking).
All this and the fact that the very first information on the Occupy Marines website is a plea for you to donate money to them...that gives me a pretty
feeling of who they are and what their goals are....can't say it's positive.
So my questions to the OP or any supporter of this.
Who exactly are these guys, any real names or credentials?
Can you really claim that "Marines" support OWS with one anonymous person starting a webpage?
Do you support the Pirate Party of the United States?
Do you really want your movement tied to 4chan?
ETA: Being a Marine doesn't make you a god that doesn't have flaws. A Marine could very well be Dirty, a Lazy Hippie, or an Entitlists. Being part
of a certain group doesn't define the individual...I judge people as an individual...not by a title.
