Supporters of the OWS Movement, point to the fact that OWS people are heroes or even journalists because they help spread awareness to the issues
about the deficit between the rich and the poor and the top 1% in the nation. At least, I think that's what their chanting was all about. It seemed
to me, that they just hated capitalism and success in general, because they didn't have any money or were too lazy to go out and search for a job.
The Associated Press assigned seven reporters to cover the OWS six month anniversary. This is what they found out.
In Albany, N.Y., Occupy protesters dubbed Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo "Gov. 1 Percent" for his refusal since the 2010 campaign to agree to a
millionaire tax, and because his major campaign financial support comes from corporate executives.... In a surprise, Cuomo reversed his position on
the millionaire tax in December to avoid further cuts to schools and health care.
An Atlanta pastor, whose church struggled to pay its bills after its building was struck by a 2008 tornado, credits Occupy Atlanta with helping it to
avoid foreclosure. ...
... In Rhode Island, Occupy Providence pushed for - and won - a temporary day center to serve the homeless during the winter. Protesters made the
center's opening a condition of their departure from a public park downtown, where they had camped against the city's wishes for more than three
months. While the city didn't fund the center, officials pledged to help its operator, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence, find money for it
... Also in Rhode Island, the state's junior U.S. senator, Sheldon Whitehouse, introduced a bill in November to crack down on high credit card
interest rates - the same week he visited the Providence encampment. Even though the White House had already introduced the bill last year....
OWS real Legacy is what happened inside the camps. Rapes, Drug Use, Theft, numerous arrests, and damage to public and corporate properties, even
murders. Here are the numbers run down:
Drug Overdoses 2
Other Deaths 5
Indecent Exposure to Children 5+
Public Masturbation 3+
Public Urination 10+
Police Officer Injuries 10+
Property Damage (Million $) 10+
Lost Business (Million $) 10+
Cost to Tax Payers (Million $) 20+
This is the real legacy of the so-called peaceful protesters. When has the Tea Party did any of this stuff?
