    Default Thoughts on Occupy Wall Street?

    I am just not getting it .. what is the point? Do they have a point now? Or is it just anti-capitalism, and posturing saying all rich people are GREEEEEEEDE and SUX?

    I heard a comment from some New Yorker on the radio this morning that I thought was the best one I've heard. He said:

    I'm sure they a great point to make.... they just haven't thought of it yet.


    I think its just a bunch of wanna be hippies, the funny thing is every time they ask someone what it is about they each give a different answer. One interview I heard some young guy said he was protesting because he thought his college should be paid for.... okaaaay where does that fit in?

    I think they're a bunch of total morons who have nothing better to do but complain that there are people in this country that have done well for themselves, make good money, and don't want to hand it out to every Tom, ****, and Harry! I'm so sick of hearing about them, hearing them cry like little girls about how unfair it is that some people have everything while they have nothing... give me a break. And I'm really sick of the press comparing them to the Tea Party... when did ANY of them start riots or get arrested for acting like lunatics?? NEVER!! How many of these idiots are arrested every single day? I think that they have every right to protest what they want, but not when they start breaking the law... I'm over it already.

    When this first started I thought it was okay, people expressing frustration and all. The longer it goes on the more it loses its validity for me. Every time I read about another crime or riot or rape I cringe and I am glad I have never put my name on anything to do with this (not that I would have)

    Yes it is getting ridiculous

    How can they even remotely think this compares to the Tea Party

    ... And the latest from this bunch of hypocrites!

    Last week, one or more Occupy Oakland protesters smashed the windows of a Wells Fargo branch.

    This week, the group’s general assembly agreed — in a near-unanimous vote Monday — to temporarily place $20,000 of the group’s money in an account at the country’s fourth-largest bank holding company, Wells Fargo Bank.

    Whether the decision was an abandonment of the movement’s opposition to big banks or an ominous affirmation of the hold that big banks have on Americans, Twitter was ablaze with outrage last night, as news spread about the 162-8 vote, from which 16 people abstained.

    And now "deaths" can be added to that list. Didn't take very long for that to happen. I hope BO and princess nancy and all the rest of the liberal left wing media and "yaaa" sayers are happy now.

    For me there was no validity from the get go. Expressing frustration is and would've been okay with me too IF these ignorant loons started it (and would still be carrying it on) at the WHITE HOUSE where the outrage and whole thing REALLY belongs instead of Wall Street.

    They claim to be part of some "99%". If they mean "99%" brain dead, I agree.


    you can only reason with reasonable people
    the need (or good) of the MANY....
    outweigh the need (or good) of the FEW.....
    or the ONE

    there are only 2 people in this world who can hurt me....
    and we all live under the same roof
