    This is what happens when government starts to govern as an Oligarchy and crony capitalism sets in. On top of that a broken education system and bail outs for the corrupt wealthy, while the middle class dwindles. I'm neither for nor against it at the moment, since I need to read some facts about the protest; before making my final decision. People opinions aren't facts and I rather read from an accurate source. For the Conservatives, just remember NDAA was passed by both parties, and Liberals should keep that in mind as well; before the endless bickering comes into play.

    Have you ever been surrounded by a Mob? Had your car being rocked and nearly turned over on a public thouroughfare?

    That is what these folks are doing. And when it happens to you you may have a different opinion. And you support destruction of public property, burning the American Flag, Looting stores, and all the other stuff they have done?

    BS again - Childish crap. And if you were intelligent and able to research you would find none of what i listed has not happened. And they have burned the American Flag, images of it being used as doormats, and in other manners defaced by these Patriots.

    They killed off some 100 year old trees in Portland Oregon. They rocked the car in DC, and the guy tried to drive off as he had his kids in the car. knocked 3 of them down and the cops let him go. They looted stores in Oakland last month. And so on and so on.

    But you cannot do research, just throw rhetoric. Like most children that get into adult conversations.

    Good for you. Lets see how you feel when violate your civil rights. Which they already have of course. The costs of this violence, and destruction is beig paid by taxpayers dollars.

    Of course if you are one of the moochers yourself, I can understand your supporting them. Most Americans are willing to resist Anarchy. But go for it if that is your thoughts for the future. You won't like living under the government they have planned for you. .

    And if you were smart you might know where my screen name came from. But of course that is way above the heads of todays brainwashed youth.

    Go away troller. Can't prove they are not violent and unlawful, you are trolling.

    I think I agree more than I disagree with their main message -- there is something severely wrong with socio-economic stratification in America.

    Many of the "occupy" protesters are young people; many are college graduates strapped with student loans and facing unemployment post-graduation, some are young servicemen and women who are finding themselves isolated and uncared for by America's corporate environment.

    I'm a middle-aged professional working for big oil. I'm sure many of the "occupy" protesters would consider me a part of the problem -- or at least a part of the corporate machine. I can't ever really understand the hardships these people are going through, but I do sympathize. The super-rich are getting richer, and the 99% have had enough. I sort of get it.

    So give half of what you own and earn to them. Buy them new tents, sleeping bags, food, etc. Let them live on your property, give them access to your home.

    After all you indeed are one of the 1% and owe them that.
  • Epistem... MadAsHEck 2012/01/30 05:31:15
    Epistemically Justified -- BN7
    Oh, I'm most certainly not one of the 1% -- I live well, but not that well. Not everyone working for big oil is an executive millionaire.

    I'd be willing to donate to the cause, but I'd need more information than the vague material reported. I know that the "occupy" movement is somewhat organized, but that isn't the way they are portrayed in the media.

    I meant that as sarcastic. That is their opinion. They want something for nothing.

    That was last year. They are now under the wing of the unions, and some other organizations that are planning some real problems in 2012. One article I read was that a group that used to be ACORN, is now back in business, and supporting them and guiding them.

    I agree with their right to protest, I disagree with their methods and the violence they have now deployed. They will never succeed in getting the support of the American people with actions like this, if they keep this up, the people have a right to defend themselves against violence and the destruction of property.

    That is what we pay the Police for. But then condem them for doing their jobs.

    It is Brutality when a Policeman has to wrestle a struggling, fist swinging, kicking and often biting protester to the gound to handcuff them.

    BS. They won't take a job. Unless they can start at the top.

    Somewhere near the protests in Olympia there is a Fast Food restaurant that has had a Help Wanted sign in the window for months. It is beneath their dignity to take a job at Minimum wage. Which in Washington is among the highest in the nation.

    Read the first ammendment. Nowhere does it give anyone the right to violate the civil rights of others. And what do you in Canada have to say about it anyway. After the BS in Canada last year in Vancouver over a Stupid Hockey Game. You are pathetic, and an insult to the Canadians that I am very good friends with.

    And when they destroy parks, and public property, they are violating my civil rights.

    See, you're quoting the later George Carlin, all old, cynical and washed up. The funny thing is that George Carlin at the end probably would have disdained and despised young George Carlin, young, optimistic, and content with life's little humor than can make existence pleasant. I'm not rich. Not a millionaire. Have some minor financial troubles. But hey, I don't feel bad.

    I think this song is the antithesis to the OWS angst.
