Great. Either pick on Neo, or ignore the facts.

Facts.
Between the rapes, drug usage, violence, empty rhetoric; what else has OWS done?
They protest the banks influencing politicians, but ignore the unons doing the same thing.
They have garnered support from anti-capitalist, socialist, communist, anarchist groups.

But go on and pick on individuals who pointed out the flaws in this "occupation".



Goddammit!

Now if this constant posting of undeniable truth doesn't cease I'll alert the MODS!

By the way....

Does posting the truth constitute Trolling or being Bias?

Millions? The largest OWS Crowd I've seen was 10 maybe 15 thousand... Well, that wasn't photoshopped


I'm not talking about the OWS, I'm talking about those they represent. The unemployed, underemployed, the poor, those on food stamps, etc.

Sorry should have clarified...but that was the point I was making.

That they are progressives. They are for bigger government.
Stricter regulations would have prevented the financial collapse. This doesn't mean an overall bigger government in all sectors, but simply stricter regulations in financial institutions that have the power to screw up the country with their irresponsible actions. Don't get blinded by your small government ideology.



Thank you, Stricter regulations on the banks can be paired with looser regulations for small business.
PWS depends on the sound bite mentality consistently, glad you are here Tupac, "you are appreciated"

I call it bias because it dominates your thinking.

I'm not surprised you're unfamiliar on how to classify truth.

You don't seem acquainted to the meaning of the word. Perhaps you might google it.

Well I don't know much about what you guys are talking about ....
I will say this, I do NOT agree with the OWS movement, from what I've heard and seen on the web through their own media....... (you know the streaming one) anyway from what I have heard they seem they want the world GIVEN to them!!

Mind you I am not part of the 1% , heck my husband works every week for 40 hours and makes a mere $290, I don't work, I can't drive never learned how to


But we make it through every week on his measly $290 check!! I say those "occupiers" to ........ actually "OCCUPY A JOB" .......... "OCCUPY A DESK!!!!

It is ignorance if you ignore the fact that Wall Street ripped off America and did it with purpose.
It is ignorance if you ignore that fact that the behavior of this nations financiers is unacceptable
and corrupt in the eyes of many.

They are anti-capitalist.
People within the group may be, but that's not the intentions of the occupy protest. The goal isn't to get rid of capitalism, it's to get rid of crony capitalism. Some morons might tote "death to capitalism" banners, but they're ignorant. Don't generalize, because you basically just said that I'm anti-capitalist.


I don't get my information from MSM.

I actually get it from OWS.

I know dude, the cause of the financial collapse was business practices that wouldn't have been allowed unless bankers/people with ties to bankers had pushed for legislation that allowed said business practices.

But somehow, a responsible, common sense approach to regulating the financial behemoths that have unimaginable power constitutes an overall larger, more oppressive government. Not allowing bankers to engage in awful business practices that line their pockets and screw over millions is apparently paralled with the TSA and the Big Brother type characters who only seek to oppress the American populus in the minds of those who stick to the "big government bad!" ideology, no matter what, like beezer here.

Good for you. Can you address the points made within my previous post now?

Op, your comparing apples to oranges..

See, anti-OWS folks do not have to reach
for anything to denounce the OWS movement.

The OWS movement pretty much just denounces itself..

But OWS did nothing to you, nothing at all. You are pointing to protestors
who haven't even touched you or harmed you and damning them for
it.

You are shilling for the banks, that is EXACTLY the function you are serving.

Face it.

If this was truly a "Popular" movement there would be those millions in the streets. Getting the word out? It's been what?

Two months?
They've accomplished what really?

I mean in real terms>

Are you going to sit there and bold face type that out and deny those activities took place?
Somebody is defecating in the park as I type this.

Again, what Anti-OWS seems to forget is that amongst a few rapes and crimes here and there.....you attempt to condemn and entire Movement because of a few bad eggs.

The point of the movement is the message. I don't know why people continue to say it isn't clear. Its crystal clear to me. The only people who don't get it are the ones who don't seek to understand the message. They rather point out all the negative that has come about.

IMHO if you really deem yourself to "deny ignorance" then you would admit that our US Government/Federal Reserve/Wall Street have been working together for 100 years to gain off the common man's back. If you're ok with that then you must enjoy the fact that we are getting closer to slavery.

It's not about laziness. Its about exposing the truth.

I agree a few bad eggs ruin it for everyone. I will also say this whole label of Communists/Socialist/Hippies/Lazy/Anarchists that Occupy Movement has taken on was created by the MSM.

So who are the sheep? The people making their voices heard and speaking out against Injustices OR the ones agreeing with the MSM?

How many showed up at Occupy events;
Raping
Doing drugs
Causing violence
Pottying in public
Espousing anti-capitalism
Wanting free food, water, shelter
Espoused death to capitalists


Do a count and you'll have your number.
