We need a Che Guevara guerrilla warfare type of movement, peace wont work ask John Lennon. The 1979 Iranian Revolution was epic as well. I think the fact Michael Moore was speaking at Occupy Oakland is enough to show how b.s this all is.
(OCCUPY the WHITE HOUSE)
As I said, the OWS is just a bootcall for testosterone overload thugs to have fun violating other's civil rights and intimidating them.
It5 really, realy is high time the Police went in with whips, chains and tasers got these thugs off the streets and into the back of the cells for a good long stay of a decade or two. The OWS scum are just not fit to be allowed out on the street.

No need to apologize for her being a communist. There is nothing wrong with communism, unless you buy into the cold war propaganda.
Really? If communism is so good, then why did if fail in the Soviet Union, East Germany, etc???
A LOT of Americans pay little attention to the Occupy movement simply because of the American Communist Party connection.
Communism is something you believe in while you are a wild eyed radical in college, and you can't get a job after college by dint of your wildness.
The majority of Americans have no use of sympathy for Communism.

THAT IS CORRECT - I WANT IT ALL FOR ME.
Sounds selfish, but meh - we are all like that. I have only seen a few truly unselfish people in my life, and I am guessing a lot of the moral squad here on ATS are not part of those few either.
HEY, I am all for communism - or whatever you want to call it - as long as I am one of the ones at the top....and trust me, as long as you have selfish people this wonderful idea of sharing everything equally and everyone is taken care of by the state is a pipe dream. (and I know some of you are saying what a prick this fella is, but hey, ITS REALITY FOLKS)
So what should be done? Get the government out of my life (to a certain extent), throw the CEOs and corrupt politicians in a pit and bury em, stop allowing corporations to offshore jobs and get people working again. As this is going on, start cutting back social entitlements.
and I know, this is going to be another shock for some, the government isn't there to look out for you - YOU SCREW UP, your going to find out how crappy life can be (cause I am tired of hearing some people thinking every aspect of their life should be guaranteed by the government, I don't know you, go out and work for a living, I don't want to be paying for ya)

What a grade AAA+ hypocrite!
If you had wanted people not to live in fear, why be part of a bunch of thugs, driven by the politics of raw jealousy, intimidating hard-working people and rubbishing their civil rights and wanting to get busy witha baseball bat on the faces of innocent Police Officers, just to satisfy the demands of ones testosterone overload?

The Spanish revolution was successful for two years at least, until the fascists took over.

I visited a couple of Occupy crowds on the east coast as travel permitted. And I've been rather unimpressed. These people are creating a huge financial burden on the municipalities they occupy. And with the large mobs a police presence is the norm. I'm glad that the police are there, I walked into the WTC in norfolk and had eggs thrown at me. Really? The Hampton Roads occupy movement was obnoxious, the one in New Orleans was intimidating. I was glad the cops were there, getting threatened and verbally abused while having things thrown at me is not a peaceful protest.
And if anyone is upset with the cops, a large aggressive mob is threatening regardless of their intent. And police respond accordingly when they feel threatened. I've seen more restraint from police that I could even imagine they'd show.

There is a revolution growing in the US. You can see it. The people are extremely upset and fed up and the treatment they are getting is creating more blow-back as we speak.
I love Occupy. Everyday more and more. I love the anarchy symbols they use. The fight they are putting up, giving the finger to the system. That is how it should be, that is what your founding fathers would have wanted to see. For once I feel real pride for America.
You on the other hand, with your whiny remarks about financial burdens (really!?) and the mobs are just plain naive in my opinion. The people of America have tried, peacefully and gently and got kicked in the nuts for it. How much more crap need they take. I mean, stand with your people I'd say. Because the system has already abandoned you.
These people there, these protesters. Look at them. All young, our age (i assume). Students most of them, graduates and other regular citizens. They are in essence 'the people''. Are you going to tell me they have no legitimacy? That they should go home? That they are a bunch no-goodies? Is that how you choose to view upon the essential people, with that kind of disdain? Then I ask you, are you part of the rich ruling elite? I assume that are not. I assume that you are as much a victim of the situation as they are.
Where are you going to stand is the question. Will you give in to the fear and defend these crumbing remains of your system? Or will you let your lion out and defend what you damned well know what is yours..edit on 31-1-2012 by dadgad because: (no reason given)

It's nice to see at least some of the of OWS contingent admit that they are anarchists at heart. It's certainly noble of you to speak on behalf of 'the people,' if when you say 'the people' you are referring to narcissistic puerile juveniles and their aging-hippie coddlers looking to relive their glory years of the sixties and seventies. Unfortunately, you are but a small minority of the American people, most of which are expressing annoyance towards your 'peaceful' Marxist tactics. Certainly, in any society there will be a small percentage of disgruntled populace. OWS typifies this subclass of malcontents, the losers if you will.
It is rather telling that you say that you feel proud of America due in part to the anarchy symbols you see being used by the OWS movement. You then go on to project your anarchist beliefs on to the founding fathers even proudly proclaiming that that is "what your founding fathers would have wanted to see." I doubt that you have studied enough history as to be able to guess what the founding fathers had in mind when they created the Constitution. I'll give you hint though, personal freedom and liberty, both of which you OWSers are infringing on with your little shanty towns of filth and feces.
I have just one little request. If you OWSers are going to continue to be unproductive members of society could you at least pick up after yourselves and stop blocking traffic? Doesn't holding hands and singing Kumbaya get boring after a while? Maybe look into X-Box? All the cool kids are doing it. I swear.
