You obviously don't get it. Capitalism is the force that made America Free and the greatest nation on earth, the reason why people from communist nations flee to it, in hope for a better life.

Occupy is trying to dismantle capitalism. Yes those evil capitalists with their better way of life. Maybe their is something to it?

Perhaps they had a walk with some chanting but nothing has been occupied here. Or they're just doing it so stealthily

I am not defending the actions of the Federal Government.

I am defending the US Constitution.

Know the difference.

Thanks for attending and standing up for the oppressed in this country.
You have my support.
Eventually, we will have a country that represents all of American's again rather than those with the most money.
Look at Obama the "leftist" and the Banks and Mega Corps that own him.

If you were wrong about Occupy having ended, perhaps you are mistaken about what they have accomplished, and who it is out there protesting.

Something to think about.

Really? Communism is not bad?
65 million killed in the People's Republic of China
20 million killed in the Soviet Union
2 million killed in Cambodia
2 million killed in North Korea
1.7 million killed in Africa
1.5 million killed in Afghanistan
1 million killed in the Communist states of Eastern Europe
1 million killed in Vietnam
150,000 killed in Latin America
10,000 deaths "resulting from actions of the international Communist movement and Communist parties not in power

I think I will pass if you dont mind.

Oakland Police Face Federal Takeover Due To Excessive Force....



SAN FRANCISCO — Mayor Jean Quan vowed Wednesday to quickly reform the scandal-plagued Oakland Police Department after a frustrated judge threatened a federal takeover if it fails to quickly make good on changes agreed to nine years ago.


...



The mayor and police chief announced in December they were hiring an independent investigator to evaluate claims police used excessive force and improper tactics responding to the protests, which included several uses of tear gas, rubber bullets and “flash-bang” grenades on protesters. One protester was hospitalized after being hit in the head with a flash grenade.

At least one officer was demoted from lieutenant to sergeant for failing to report a subordinate blacking out his name tag. Warshaw promised the judge a more in-depth analysis of the Occupy protests when he submits his next report sometime in July. Henderson said the results of that report may prompt him to take the extremely rare step of placing the department in a federal receivership, stripping Oakland of control of its police.

A question for you occupy members, where are you getting your shields from?

I have heard that there is some seed money to be used by the Occupy movement, around 11 million.

As to the capitalism is the route of all evil - what we have today isn't capitalism, it is a marriage between government and big corporate world.

I've felt that the change to occupying abandoned buildings was a good move, but the building chosen here was way too central. Trying to set up what has been described as a major center near City Hall; it's no real surprise that that was not going to be tolerated.

Occupy's tactics are still far too centralised. You need to spread out, and focus on foreclosed buildings in the suburbs and outlying areas, where the police are much less likely to view them as a target. I understand that the movement wants high profile targets, but you can't realistically hope to take those until you have the numbers, and you don't have them yet.

Go and read about Vietnam; and even the CIA's own work in Nicaragua. Any guerilla force first needs the support of the people before it can do anything else. You need to get a sufficient number of buildings without police heat in the process, and give those to the homeless, so that you have a big enough local presence that the lies that the authorities try to tell about you, won't stick. Occupy needs to become an organisation with a proven, widely held reputation of assisting the homeless and disadvantaged. You don't have that yet; and the authorities can exploit the fact that you don't, with people who don't know better.

The goal needs to be the moral high ground; not seeking confrontations with the police. You might win those long term, in terms of public opinion; but you won't win them on a per-engagement basis, and they will also seriously compromise the organisation's long term stamina, if its' most valuable people are being thrown in jail.

Sorry the hammer and sickle on their flags kinda threw me off, and the fact both were supporting places such as Viet Nam, N. Korea, and Cuba... my bad.

So then I guess communism is a failure.
