All that being said, this is what it comes down to according to Occupy San Diego.


The General Assemblies of Occupy San Diego and Occupy City Heights hereby invites our communities, our regional neighbors, and our co-inhabitants of Earth, in general, to join us in both protesting the TPP and also in creating a new world. We will march with pots and pans, and drums. (Can you hear me now?) We will sponsor an international week-long conference and roundtables on what is wrong with the TPP Pact and what are the people’s alternatives.


Join us in creating a new world?? A new world according to who? or what? Just another reason to march with pots and pans and drums. Will anything come of this "global Action"? Has anything substantial and concrete been accomplished by any Occupy Group yet?? I know they are quite adept at racking up bills for the cities in which they gather.

I love this part too

From July 2 to July 10, the political leaders of the Pacific Rim nations are meeting in San Diego to turn the Pacific Ocean and its peoples into a giant privatized corporate lake characterized by non-union workers,


Amazing how they squeeze in the Non Union bit amongst their cries to save the Pacific Rim and its Fragile Eco System. (I agree that its fragile) So if the workers are non union this is a problem?? Alrighty then. That's all I need to see. And the privatized bit?? Wow!! So, Occupy wants the govt to control everything!!! No need to read further.... You guys crack me up.... Sorry for the reality check...

Do you believe the TPP to be a good thing? If not, isn't raising awareness a good thing in a harmless way a good thing? Even if you do believe it's a good thing shouldn't Americans be more aware of what this trade agreement translates into?

If there's one thing I'm really getting sick of, as far as conservative attitudes towards Occupy are concerned, it's the claim that they are responsible for the expenses incurred as a result of policing them. The only reason why you believe this, is because you refuse to believe that the basis of police action against Occupy has consistently been brutal, psychopathic, and completely legally and morally illegitimate.

I'm not saying I never have conflict with Occupy supporters here; I do. I've written at length about the Marxist connection. As far as I'm concerned, it is there.

The thing that I've noticed about conservatives though, and you're a good case in point with this, jibeho...is that they refuse to think in terms of anything other than stereotypes where Occupy are concerned. My own profiling of Occupy as Communist comes from direct observation; I can go to the web sites, listen to what they say, compare it with known Marxist philosophy, and draw a conclusion from there.

Conservatives don't do that, though. With the possible exception of Breitbart himself, most of you haven't engaged in anything remotely like due diligence, where learning about the movement is concerned. Your stereotyping is generally based on the civil rights movement from the 1960s. As much as you might refuse to acknowledge this, Occupy are different from the groups that existed back then. It is inevitable that they would be, purely because of technology, if nothing else.

If you've got legitimate criticism of Occupy as a movement, that's fine. One of the ways in which I'm different from the people here who are unequivocally supportive of Occupy, (such as XPLodER, primarily) is that I don't believe that people should be denied the right of expression if they disagree with me; nor do I necessarily interpret negative feedback as a form of personal attack. One of my main grievances with Occupy supporters is the fact that they tend to do this. You either love every single thing about the movement, or you're considered an enemy of the people.

As you'd know from following my threads, I have quite a lot of issues with Occupy myself. Most of what you say, however, is not only repetitive, but also oversimplified and terse; you really do come across as persistently trolling, purely for the sake of being antagonistic.

Oh those evil non-union workers. If obama even gets involved he's probably being dragged kicking and screaming.

IF Obama gets involved? IF? He's spearheading it. It wouls almost be cute that people believe he's a liberal or even a Socialist...champion/friend of the people...you believe those words when he says them but not his birth certificate. Obama is an enemy of the people, anti-socialist, fascist..born in Hawaii.
