Using a few pictures from isolated incidents is not a good way to paint an entire movement.

The majority of "occupations" have been peaceful and yet, I don't see you focusing on them.

You're still asleep regardless of that.

Why don't you tell us about the capitalist utopia that you have in mind, you know, the one where the middle class works their way into peasantry while the 1% laugh all the way to the bank?

The one where I can work without getting taxed to death. The one where teachers don't skip school to go and protest because they are union. The one where I can parent my child without the government telling me how I can and can not parent. The one where I am not shaken down at every intersection and robbed for the sake of supporting a welfare nanny state. The one where I can think for myself and do not rely on the government to do it for me.

If you haven't read up on Cointelpro and Black Bloc you really should do, it might explain some of the chaos going on.

Solution is basic:
If everyone stopped buying gas for 1 day
And everyone quit paying income tax for 1 year
That has more impact than ows ever will.

You can just sit on your a$$ & do it from home, & be more contributing
Than standing around people yelling "shame" " the whole world is watching"

If you want that so bad, then get off your ass and make it happen.

You know, instead of sitting there and bagging on an entire movement because you'd rather live in the dark.

Want to hear something strange about a bank that has happened to my brother recently?

The bank in my hometown that was where the occupy protest was held (next to) has gotten a new chief of security. Twice he has blatantly taken my brothers photo (my brother and I stopped by occupy last year, but that isn't really relative I don't think). I think he is taking photos of all young people that park near or come by the bank. This bank sets next to a plaza where the sidewalk extends and there are picnic tables.

That is where the protest was held, not because the bank (which isn't one of the main banks and wasn't being protested), but because of the location and space.

The first time the guy walked near my brother and then lifted his phone over his shoulder and took a picture. The second time my brother and his friend has parked on the street by the plaza (this IS NOT bank property) and walked to a clothing shop, when they came back the guy was looking in their car window with his hands against the glass and when they saw him they started moving faster towards him and he walked off. He tried the bank front door but it was locked so he had to walk past them. When he walked by he made no effort to conceal it, he snapped a picture of them both with his phone. We have called the bank and complained that if he is doing this to everyone he will end up provoking the public, but they didn't seem concerned. It is just very weird to me that he is spending so much time recording young people (in their twenties) outside the bank and looking in cars that are parked on the street.

Return the favor. Take pictures of this clown, and not just from a cell phone, either use a camera or find a photographer who has a camera just to emphasize the effect. Stand there with an ear piece as if you are relaying communications to a headquarters. Make it appear as if this clown is under complete and ominous surveillance. Fight fire with fire and fear with fear under such circumstances.

Do we need more proof that the banks are run by ungrateful clowns that aren't satisfied with the money that was shoveled into their hands during the bailouts?

Their days are numbered...

That was actually the plan. After my brother called the bank and they just said it was their chief of security, we decided we were going to hang around there for a bit one day and get pictures of him. I mean.. why would he need multiple pictures of my brother? I guess he was looking in the car to see if there was anything he could call the police about, but it wasn't in the bank parking lot it was parked on the street by the bank. It was a little weird.

I wonder if I can legally post the pictures up on FB or here? I think the photographer owns the rights and you can as long as it's not for profit right?

Yep.. my mom actually has an account there. So if he takes a picture of me or says anything about me taking a picture of him I am going to go in and explain to them that he is running off customers. Also, if he is armed (they said he wasn't, but bank security usually is) how long until he takes a picture of some aggressive guy that gets mad and tries to fight him and the security shoots him or something? It seems pretty provocative to stand outside taking pictures of everyone that comes near the bank. It is the opposite of inviting you know?

It's really not about me sitting on my ass is it? And it's not really about the movement is it? But while were on that subject the movement has a communist logo. Well anyways whatever. If I found it appealing maybe I would join up, but I don't.

Those scenes are funny, because I never saw any of them at the protests. The police were absolutely the aggressors and most of the havoc was caused by police inciting violence and dressing as black bloc. They have been busted for it several times. Cops were caught mingling and wearing masks at several occupy protests.

Here are some pictures from two occupy protests I attended (well one picture from a different one)
This is what most Occupy protests around the country looked like. The only place there was violence were in the big cities (maybe 5 protests out of hundreds) and that violence was generally provoked.








and here are some memorable pictures from the bigger protests:

Blah blah blah.

You're just one of those clowns that strayed too far from Redstate and now you're here.

Why bother with such a thing? I made the recommendation I did only to turn the table on that clown. It is doubtful that clown will be posting his pictures on FB or here, so why go down that road? My guess is that if you apply the same principles on him that he is applying upon you he will react to it in an unlawful way and presume he has some sort of authority to assault you or your brother, or even worse engage in actual battery. If he falls prey to the presumption he has a license to act unlawfully, then use that stupidity against him and file a verified complaint with your local Sheriff and have this clown prosecuted for any criminality he might have engaged in. Do not allow you or your brother to do the same, just let the tyrants fall as the just rise.

I don't see anything wrong with these pics.

But if we were talking about Pee Farty protests, there would be plenty of knuckleheads in here to defend the racists.
