    Everything, I mean I barely know what is the Wall Street so I don't know about the protest.

    I'm an attorney, but i'm definitely in the so called 99%. OWS does not speak for me in any capacity. People seem to be pissed that they dont have jobs - dont blame Wall Street, blame your local politicians.

    FUCK CORPORATE AMERICA AND FUCK CAPITALISM! (this facebook status brought to you by an IPHONE 4S)

    As if anyone with authority on a local level could fix anything. What we need is an entirely new system of government.

    To be fair, you're easily confused.

    Also: "The Member Formerly Known As Baya Rae uses confusion! It's super effective!"

    I feel like there is a lot of this. I was doing a lot locally for my local OWS movement recently, but now I am just corrupting the youth with Ellen D into a weapon to take down the system.

    OWS hippies complain about government, demand more government. Socialist fuckheads don't understand the difference between corporatism and real capitalism.

    A good portion of the 99% hold down jobs and make a good living for themselves and their families, because they're too busy working for a living to be shouting memes in the street. Also, it's worth noting that the 1% pays 40% of the U.S's taxes, and only 52% of Americans even pay any taxes at all. Huh. Seems like a very specific kind of person that's actually down there begging for free shit protesting.

    You are severely misunderstanding the issues that the OWS movement is trying to address. So you have no problem with a system in which the 2% of the wealthiest people on Earth control 40% of the total wealth, while the bottom 50% of the world wealthiest people control about 2% of the total wealth? That is 3.5 billion people whose combined total value in material assets is a pathetic 2%? If you are on this website reading this, you are in that bottom 50%. Don't pretend you are rich compared to the top 2%. While I am not a socialist, but Marx was right about economic inequality and it is a serious problem that is leading to a two class society and only a zombie can't see this obvious truth.

    If you continue to believe this is acceptable, I just want to inform you, when violent civil war does break out in America (and the rest of the world), that you are not on my side and you better watch your fucking back.

    And that goes to anyone else, if you continue supporting this incompetent corrupt global elite, you are an enemy of me and the majority of humanity and don't deserve life. So watch out.

    A bunch of guys are protesting against vague, immaterial bullshit that doesn't address any real issues and the MSM has blown it out of proportion. So it's basically the Tea Party, but for college kids who're too stupid to find and hold down a job.

    Pretty much. The only real resistors in the west, regardless of their politics, are the ones in the hills in militias wearing camo. And there haven't been a lot of them around since the end of the 1990s. Still, I'm hoping that the bosses do something stupid to stir up the beehive like Clinton did in the 1990s when he accused everybody who doesn't like the federal government of being in league with McVeigh.

    I think OWS needs an actual leader, an intelligent spokesperson who can answer and brief people, and to stop making 'Occupy ___' all over the country.
    OWS actually had meaning, thats the root of the evil taking place.
    The 'One Demand' is also a joke. The only demand is to put these leaders into jail and get the leaders of the corporations/banks out of government positions.

    I am feeling some pretty negative vibes right now.
    Leaving this thread to die.
